The new Electronic Rebel 02 Bottomline has been re-engineered and redesigned with the player in mind. Using computerized machining and a custom heat treatment process, not only on the new milling and finish but on the inside. The custom 45 double trigger frame interlocks smoothly with the main body, making for quicker trigger pull, while also reducing wear and vibration. This creates superb performance and accuracy. The solid brass filter in the air adapter restricts dirt and debris, ensuring maximum co2 efficiency. Can be used with Co2 or nitro. Spyder threaded.
The 32 Degrees Rebel02 Bottomline Electronic is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

32 Degrees Rebel Bottomline Electro
System X 1-piece barrel
System X expansion chamber
VL Revvy w/ X-board (and early non-fragile shell)
Thunder Pig micro-coil remote
New barrel (stock one's unported)
High ROF if you modify the trigger pull
Stock barrel's quite loud (if that matters to you)
Long trigger pull
I bought this for my son after he was about to give up paintball due to his miserable experience with his Viewloader Revelation (BE Avenger). What a difference! Picked it up for $79 at my local PB store. He's put about 5k balls thru it with maybe 3 breaks. The trigger pull is easy to modify with a 1/8" spacer and a hot glue gun. Now the pull is about 2 mm. I could tighten it up further but I think it's fine as is.
I'd recommend this product highly. It 's very reliable, and does what it's supposed to do. No worries about gun malfunctions at the field. If anything goes wrong, it comes apart easily and it's pretty much identical to a Spyder internally, so if you're clueless about how to fix it, just about anybody can help you.

This was my first noob gun, Nothing bad except you will probably have to get a new spring because your velocity will be as low as he!!. First I thought it was small paint but it wasnt. I shot my friend from about 25 ft away 4 times and none of them popped. I never got it chronoed but I just played by ear with my friends gun(JT excellerator SUCKS) Once you get your spring fixed everything falls into place(accuracy, range, ect) After using my cocker, I liked the electro trigger. I just put a spacer between the frame to get the pull down and put a harder return spring and this trigger can rip like no other. Might want to buy a revvy for shooting fast though. Get the Proggressive barrel, It is super accurate and looks sweet matching the blue on my gun.
This gun is great after having a bit of experience looking back from the cocker. Out of the box play stinks so I give it a 9. This gun is great once it gets goin.
Remember, most problems are due to noobs not understanding their marker, So I hope this review helped.
Hair trigger pull, fast, Cool looking, Reliable, Lays out paint
Un-balanced, Lets out lots of co2
I have shot this gun a few times and it was fast for a semi-auto electro. It lays down the paint with almost no chops. This gun looks pretty cool with a drop forward and new barrel. However you must have a electronic hopper to shoot it to its full capicity. When I shot it I learned the trigger pretty fast and learned that you can almost just twich your hand a little and it will fire.
I think this is just about the best electronic marker you can buy for the price, I have seen it everwhere brand new for 80 bucks and on ebay they go for about 40 of 50. Really cheap, out performs all other electronics in its price range. Great gun, what have you got to lose its only about 40 bucks. Buy this gun!
This gun isn't a very good gun to hit the nail on the head. It's velocity is low, even when the screw is all the way in. It's barrel has porting, but the barrel still couldn't shoot the empire state building if it were 5ft in front of it. You lose a crapload of co2 when you remove the tank off of the gun too, which wastes any co2 the gun is able to save with it's low pressure chamber. The gun just decided to stop working when I had only used in maybe 10 games. Thats right, just stopped working. Of course my warrenty was out and to pay someone to fix it would cost more than the gun did. So in short, don't buy this gun, not even if your a beginner. Just buy a Black Maxx at Meyers and sve yourself $30 and a bunch of disappointment.
The gun sucks, it's not even worthy to a beginner. Want a Rebel? Just get some PVC tube, paint it black, and blow balls through it. This way is much cheaper than wasting $90 on the gun.
electra 05' 45/4500 crossfire tank, halo B with rip, quiot riot
I dont think there really are any, its cheap i guess
i had one of these guns for a little bit, shot it in the backyard to start with. the first time i took it to a field to play, the ball detents broke, it shot anywhere from 180-310 fps, the cocking bolt sheered off inside the gun, making imposable to get the internals out the back. i tried getting a new spring kit to fix the shot consistancy, used HPA once too, nothing seemed to work. there was a leak in the hose, which i was able to fix with some teflon tape. well i gave up on this marker and took off what i could and scraped the rest. my buddy won one of these at the michigain monster game, wasnt even able to get it out on the field befor it broke. i dont even want to say anymore about this POS marker. get a spyder if your in this price range.
This gun is no good, dont bother. and befor you start flaming me, im not a noob, and im not bias towards any type of marker, and ive shot many different types of markers, from high ot low end.
This marker is fairly decent out of the box but i would recommend getting a new spring for it no questions asked and a new barrel.
ok accuracy for stock barrel
I haven't had any problems with this marker except the spring. The stock spring is weak as all get out. It is probably one of the best low-end electric markers in my opinion and it can be modified fairly easy. The trigger pull is shortened with a piece of Mountain Dew can. : ) Yes Mountain Dew can. I have virtually no room on it, if the wind blows it look out lol. Anyway, great marker for those who are just getting in the field of paintball. Just wish i could play more, stupid jobs....
I recommend it cause its a ok out of the box marker. *DO NOT PLAY ON LONG FIELDS* At least not til you get the spring changed. If you have the problem email 32 degrees and they should send you one at no charge. They did for me anyway. Just gotta get it back to a field so i can chrono it.
32 Degrees Rebel 02 Bottomline [Comprable, but less reliable and slower rate of fire]
Tippmann 98 Custom [More easily taken appart, louder, slower rate of fire, solidly built, great reliability]
Tippmann A5 [More expensive, louder, more mechanical parts, very solidly built]
Kingman Spyder Victor II [Meh, it is a paintball gun... That's about it]
32 Degrees Rebel 02 Bottomline [Black]
32 Degrees Expansion Chamber Bob Long Style [Black]
Catalina Cylinders 20 oz. CO2 tank [Black]
Viewloader V200 Hopper [Flat Black]
J&J Performance 14" Ceramic/Teflon Barrel [Flat Black]
Barrel [Mine is terrific]
20oz CO2 tank [If you can afford Nitro, go buy a better gun]
*Thumb velocity adjuster
*Compatibility with Kingman Spyders
*Not as sturdy as a Tippmann
I have used this gun twice. It belongs to one of the members of my team and I used it when my gun was having airflow problems and he was unable to attend games. I was impressed by the performance of the marker. It was still able to fire after I bounced it off of a rock and had it fall into a stream [Note: If this happens, don't assume it will be ok. Dry it up immediately.].
I would highly suggest this to a budget paintballer. It is still $45 dollars less than a Tippmann, you get something different and you won't have airflow problems like with the non-electronic version.
9 out of 10

accuracy <<with the progressive barrel
This gun is great ive had it for about 2 weeks now and it is one of the best ones ive seen and used it had better velocity than my friends autococker and better accuracy that a model 98 if your a bigginer or even advanced you should buy this gun it is up there with the A-5
You must have fun with this one if not what the HE// did you do to it the gun is fine stock for playing with your friends but get a barrel to play at a field
I bought my bottomline and all the stuff to go with it to replace my old tippman and after I got it home I stripped it cleaned it then oiled it and loaded it up gas it up then went cat hunting this thing is accurate i could hit a regular trashcan at 40 yards with no problem.
It did chop one ball but that was the paints fault it was made in 1998 and it came from walmart and was white instead of the green and black it was supposed to be it was so old and i still only chopped one ball I say it is an awsome gun for the money I am going to get my wife one sometime in the near future.
I would buy another anytime but i think this gun will last me a lifetime i highly recomend this gun.
Rebel xtreme/tl plus/98c/sonix and i think this gun is better then them all.
Rebel Xtreme/20 ounce/Dye excel barrel/Revvy
Barrel and rxpansion chamber and revvy
Very light/Light trigger pull/Shoots fast/compact/looks koool.
Crap accuracy with stock barrel./Freezes easier then spyders
I dont know why everyone hates these rebels....I love mine more then my TL Plus.
Its a great begginner gun...i only got rid of it because the magnet in the trigger got messed up but that was due to me pulling the trigger a lot around the house. I think i did better with this gun then i do with my TL Plus and dye barrel. And i wish i didnt get rid of it.
I would recommend this gun to a beginner.....i give it a 9 because this thing works great compared to my Rebel xtreme and tl plus..If you get the Rebel xtreme instead....change the hose ;).
