rebel 02 w/bottomline, bob long delrun bolt, 12in smart parts teardrop, bob long expansion chamber, macroline, 12oz pure energy, empire reloader hopper
new barrel (i love my 12in teardrop), expansion chamber, motorized hopper
after getting a few upgrades(new barrel, x chamber, and motorized loader) this gun is great. the rebel is VERY easy to take apart (feild strippable). i like the thumb velocity adjuster. it isnt too loud. it is really light and seems pretty tough. with my teardrop i have real good accuracy. i also love this gun because of how easy it is to upgrade. this is a great beginner gun and also a nice gun for those who have been playing for a while and want to upgrade it.
- can chop paint if u fire too fast(fixed with a motorized hopper)
- stock barrel isnt very accurate (also can be fixed)
Thats about it.
at first i didnt like it when it was all stock. after the upgrades i loved it. this gun is awsome for beginners and intermediates. very customizable. it wont let you down. if you want to get in the game for a cheap price BUY THE REBEL!!!!!

You can go on and bash me if you want for writing this review, but before you do, take into account that this is MY experience with the gun. It is not based on ANYONE elses experience. If you don't like it, that's fine, I really don't much care. Anyway, on to this review.
Where to Begin?
-If you are REALLY, and I do mean REALLY, strapped for cash, then by all means, go on and get this gun. You can find it for a very cheap price on ebay from any number of dealers.
-Shiny, flashy body. Not so good for woodsball, but for that young player, I am sure it looks wicked neat.
-This gun, for all intents and purposes of my using it, is a piece of crap. It was not just ONE gun, but TWO. My brother in law had gotten these for my nephews as they are just getting started. Well, he should have spend the money on a Spyder(as I did anyways when one completely refused to work and we wanted to involve them in our game.) The o-rings had to be replaced constantly on the bolts of both of them, as they tore apart for some reason. A piece of metal broke off somewhere on the inside of one and scored a deep hole in the chamber which allowed air to leak through. This made the balls drop like a coyote off a cliff as soon as they exited the barrel. The braided hoses did not let enough air through and we had to remove them all together and screw the tanks into the vertical ASA.
-Most everything else is minor, that could be overlooked easily on a better marker. The trigger wobble, was almost ungodly. I know my Spyder is no custom job, but it's nothing like the rebel. Very cheaply made frame and gun, all around
My conclusion would be to just spend the extra 20 or so dollars and buy a Spyder or Icon, or Pirhana(sp?). I'm not bashing 32*, as I do like a lot of their products. But in my experience, this one just fell short for me. Sorry to say it, but better luck next time, Guys.
I can't give this gun a 1, because for the price, it was about what I expected. Nice, shiny, flashy gadget. But performance-wise, I just don't see it. So it gets a Hesitant 3.
Rebel 02 bottomline [stock]
68/3000 pure energy HPA
Viewloader Quantum hopper
1. barrel [I'm considering the Quiet Riot]
2. drop forward [very long with my HPA]
3. Motorized hopper [my Quantum is perfect for this gun]
Quite fast for a mech
Barrel [as with everything]
Not vertical feed
Not much more to say. It is a tank, I've put this thing through the most intense punishment I could, not even a glitch. My friends with spyders and cockers all laugh at me, [I'll get over it **sniff**]. While at the same time they're crying because there timing isn't right, or they can't fix there ever broken gun.
Just the other day me and some friends were ballin' in a gravel pit. Just so everyone knows what this thing can take, here it is. First scrambling for cover I smashed this sucker on a rock, HARD. I figured it had to have broken something, no damage except scuffed anno. Then after getting my shoes nice and slippery with mud and water, I had one foot on a flat slanted rock, slipped and fell about 5 feet. I landed in about a half foot of mud. Again I smacked it on a rock but this time it was full of mud. A quick squeegee and it shot like new again. You can't break this thing!
Wonderful product. Don't let bad reviews scare you. I'm giving an 8/10 because of a few flaws, the best score I ever give is 9/10
8 out of 10

fish, spyders...pretty much all stacked tube blowbacks
2003 Impulse with Vert Max Flo Reg, 20 0z C02 with Smart Parts On/Off and anti-syphon
a new barrel
accurate, durable, nice looking
trigger pull, efficiency.....
a kid let me use his rebel just to shoot around at our local field at the chrony booth, and if was surprised. it was accurate even with the stock barrel. the trigger pull is VERY long, but no too bad. this gun would suck a 12 0z tank dry in about 500 shots, but refills r free, so who cares??? its a loud gun but im sure a new barrel would fix that, as well as give it super accuracy. Overall i was very impressed for the 100$ Cdn u spen on it.
a very good starter gun, get for ne kind of play. buy it

Similar Products Used:
Spyder xtra (awsome gun for beginers)
Tippmann 98 (over priced)
(ordered a odyssey rpm today)
stock, used co2
don't even get the gun (u need upgrades to get the gun to shoot out of the box)
Trigger would be awesome if it wasn't to weak
Doesn't work out of the box
Trigger to weak to shoot the gun
My cousin bought this gun and it didn't work out of the box. So i came over and looked at it. First of all the hose leaked, the trigger wasn't strong enough to shoot the gun (tried two different new batteries) and when i got it to shoot finally the paintballs wouldn't go anywhere cause to get it to work i had to take a sprig out, so the only about of air would only move the bolt.
this gun doesn't even work why buy it? I would give it a 0 but that's not an option

New 12" Barrel
Extreme Rage 200 Rd. Hopper
20oz. Co2 Tank
Very Consistent Distance
Alright Accuracy w/ New Barrel
Chops Balls Mad
Can't Shoot Fast
Long Trigger Pull
Bad on CO2
After a few upgrades to the 32 Degrees Rebel 02 Bottom Line, it is a pretty good, all around gun. It has very consistant distance, it's pretty accurate, it's lightweight, all expected in a gun. But it chops balls like crazy, it's not the fastest gun, it has a long trigger pull, and it eats up CO2 like mad. But in the end it is a decent gun for the price and has lasted me a long time with my horrible care to it.
Overall, I would recommend this gun to a beginner with very little experience because it is great for the price, it's not to complicted mecanically, and it shoots consistently and accurate.
stingray 2 (I know, I know...)
Spyder Compact SE
Game Face E-Rex Pro
14" J&J Ceramic (I love it)
Off set sight rail
Hopefully a Halo B loader soon
Spyder Delrin bolt
Barrel!!! (fits spyder threads)
And if you're a more expierienced player a new expansion chamber and bolt
Decent w/ upgrades
Fairly simple to maintain and clean
Original barrel is God awful
Long and hard trigger pull
Alright this was my first gun and it's decent for the price. I used it for about a year and a half.
Barrel: Nobody under any circumstance should use the stock barrel on this gun, I quickly found this out after my first day. It breaks balls like crazy, and when it doesn't it couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. For god sakes get a decent barrel on ebay. (remember this gun fits spyder threads so wide selection)
Trigger frame: The trigger feels pretty cheap and the trigger pull is very long. This makes it very difficult to shoot fast. The grip is pretty good. One problem I had with my gun was that the safety sometimes didn't work, which usually isn't a problem if you're careful.
Bolt & the rest of the frame: The bolt chopped quite a bit of balls, but it's fairly cheap to replace (again, the main problem with ball breakage was the barrel). The top cocking bolt can be a distraction sometimes (again not a big problem), and I had a few problems with the gun not automatically re-cocking.The frame is fairly high quality and very durable. This gun is quite the gas hog, and it eats up O rings.
The bottomline setup is a nice option, but if you don't like it you can take it off.
I have not had any major problems with this gun, besides for one of the trigger frame screws coming loose fairly often (caused the gun to sputter) but I just got a new screw and tightened it up and it's worked ever since.
This gun has been pretty good to me after I changed the barrel, and after playing with it for two years I would say
This is a great gun for players new to the game, or intermediate players that have a low budget. This is by no means the best gun for its price though, and some people prefer the lower end spyders or tippmans. You get decent "bang for your buck"
The biggest thing for this gun is the skill of the user. If you're a decent player you can out perform guns a couple hundred dollars more expensive than you, and that pisses them off.
I would give this gun an 8 but you have to spend 30+ dollars for a new barrel
8 out of 10
