Cowman: You're only a 'newb' if you make yourself out to be one. Asking for help is opening the door to a larger world.

About the leak in the bottomline: check the o-ring on your CO2 tank. If a new o-ring doesn't solve the problem, the pin on the tank is being engaged too soon. First, try other tanks on your marker and your tank on other markers to determine where the problem lies. Whatever the problem, it should be repaired by an airsmith. Should be a simple(cheap) fix. Alternately, you could sidestep the problem by purchasing an on/off CA adapter like this one. The part should cost between $30 and $50 new. The idea is to be able to screw the tank in completely before engaging the valve pin. This is one of the reasons I use a remote system. I hate to tell you to buy something you've already bought, so I strongly recommend to price both options before deciding.

about upgrades: Play with your marker a lot before you start pouring money into it. At this point, your money is probably better spent on paint, air, and field fees to get your skills and knowledge up. If you decide you don't like the feel, it's gripframe or dropforward time. If you want accuracy, get a nice barrel and MATCH YOUR PAINT TO IT. The younger brother of accuracy is consistency. If you're in a warm climate, a regulator for CO2 could make a big difference over the chrono. Cold climates might indicate HPA, but only if you can get cheap and easy fills, play enough to warrant the expense, and are plagued by liquid CO2 problems.
Spend time with players. Play mostly at your own skill level, but don't be afraid to step into deeper water to test the temperature. See what players are using. Ask them if you can try out their markers. Find out what you like, and what you don't BEFORE you start upgrading. Way back in the ancient times, I spent all my money on stuff for my rebel. It looked tight, but I couldn't afford to play. Take a lesson from my mistake.

Long story short: Just play. Lots.

broken rebel '02

A friend gave me this gun one day because he broke it and wanted me to fix it. This gun leaks CO2 whenever any bottle it screwed in. i tried to fix it by stripping the gun but found that the cocking rod was broken, and in order to strip it you need to be able to screw out the cocking rod. Could I get any ideas for fixing either problems? thanks.

okay, the problem with the broken linkage pin is a tough one. What you need to do is remove the back pin, take out the hammer spring, pull the bolt fully back. Now, if you can get some sort of angled tool into the lower body tube, you can actually lever the link pin free. the hammer actually has a hole going all the way through from the top to the inside of the tube. if you can find a good picture of a striker, you'll know what you mean.

about upgrades (spazzonater):
Air is nice if you can get fills where you plan to play. This upgrade will transfer nicely to another marker, should you decide to upgrade. Not much is necessary to prepare for this upgrade, if you've got a bottomline ASA. Some like to have a dropforward, but that's up to you. A used steel HPA tank with some life until its next hydro can be had on the cheap. Buying a tank with an adjustable output pressure will give you versatility, and let you tune your marker toward more gas-efficient operation, but will cost more. Consider the costs and availability of HPA in your area before you jump in.

The ONLY type of bolt it's remotely worth your money to buy (imho, of course)is of the lightweight polymer variety, but these require special care. My verdict: Don't bother.

A used 9 or 12v revy is kind of nice, and can be had very cheaply used. IMHO, not necessary for woods ball on a mechanical marker. I can fan my mech. rebel as fast as I can and my good old VL-200 still keeps up.

The best way to upgrade your trigger is an electro frame. IIRC, '02 rebels are grip-compatible with spyders. Ebay or message boards. This one can be kind of spendy. If you feel awesome, you might be able to pick up someone's nonfunctional electro-spyder (as long as the electronics are good) and slap the frame on your rebel. This upgrade is likely to necessitate the purchase of an agitated hopper.

About upgrades: (DragonX8806)
the single most important thing, I cannot stress enough is paint-to-barrel match.
You said you like the lines of your marker how it is, so, just buy paint that fits your barrel. The good folks at the field where you play should be able to sell you paint that fits nicely. Steel braided hose is a personal preference thing. It's durable. Good if you're rough with your marker when you play. Read the second half of my previous post.

... and I'm spent.

Hey does anyone know about any bolt or other recomended upgrades for a rebel le?

http://www2.888paintball.com/product...15474493496625

I've seen the bob long, but will that fit the le? If so is it worth it. Something that's less than 30 bucks can't be that important can it?

Rebel problems

i need help. i have an electronic rebel btb and i have had problems with it since i got it last year. my first problem was that whenever i pulled the trigger the sear woudnt trip but i think that problem is fixed somewhat it still tends to do it from time to time. then awhile back it started leaking air from the asa. i got it sealed at a paintball shop but it still does it. and just this past weekend i went to play and i found that i couldnt get the gun to shoot over 200fps. i took it to the field owner and he field stripped the gun only to find that the pin that connects the hammer and the bolt is snapped in half. i have yet to play a full match with this gun (due to problems) since i got it last year for christmas. i have been thinking about trying to save up for an impy and selling the rebel. i could use all the help i could get and i would like to save the 500 bucks it would cost for the imp.

The sear not tripping is because of the battery. Are you using a rechargable 9.6v or just a 9v? Sometimes just the 9v doesn't cut it.

Teflon all of your hose's connectors. Change the oring on your tank.

Get a spyder spring kit so you can get the gun over 200 fps.

Yah, I would invest in a java rechargable battery and charger.

What spring combination were you using?
