The Stingray II Ice is the latest version of the popular Stingray II entry level semi-automatic marker. This marker is made from the finest clear, impact resistant plastic available and is virtually indestructible! It's perfectly balanced for a steady aim and perfect shot . Its performance/price relationship is unmatched in today's marketplace. It's predecessor, the Stingray II, is the world's number one selling semi-automatic paintball marker. The Stealth Series offers an exciting new look and appearance that is unmatched in paintball today. The Stingray II Ice continues to be an excellent choice for playing locations which require low velocities such as indoor fields.
The Brass Eagle Stingray II Ice is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
A good 12v hopper. Nothing else really fits on it. But if you plan to put money on a marker don't put it on a Stingray.
Ok first of all ignore the noobs that have played 1 1/2 years and under when they review this marker and say it is innaccurate. My Enigma was delivered wrong so I sent it back for another and used the Stingray II for a couple weeks (eight-ten games) this is what I found,
-Is fairly accurate one of my friends hit center marke on a target 100 feet away fout times in a row.
-dosen't chop much (i was using legends)
I know it's not much for good stuff but when you think about it if your new then this marker can be a really good marker to use for learning the ropes.
These are the reasons an expireicanced player would NOT want to use the marker.
-It's barrel can only be removed by little pins on the side.
-It's barrel is very short. And you cant get a longer one.
-It's triger pull is very long
-It is acctually quite loud.
-It sort of curves up and over when you shoot not actually curving just lobbing.
-In speedball it shoots very slow.
Well if your new this is a good marker for you. Cheap but don't put moeny into when you become a decent player with this get at least a gun that is over $100. Thats about it. Thx for reading.
TALON (ok for what it is but i wont get into that)
TALON GHOST (look up)
Stingray II (re)painted flat black, freshly rebuilt with acrylic detent ball and venturi bolt, 12" brass eagle barrel painted flat black, 9oz co2 with butt plate turned all the way up
BARREL IT HELPS ALOT (i cant emphasise this enough) it makes the gun!!!
co2 tank with a butt plate (gives you a rifle feel and makes it very stable to fire, I LIKE THIS GUN OVER SOME OF THE NEWER ONES BECAUSE THE BOTTOM LINE CO2 SETUPS DONT FEEL RIGHT THE WAY THE RAY IS SET UP ITS MORE IN A SHOULDER FIRING POSTITION AND IT FEELS MORE LIKE A REAL GUN
VENTURI BOLT and acrylic detent ball YOU WILL NEVER BREAK A BALL AGAIN WITH THIS UPGRADE (I use the brass eagle balls and never break them)
DURABILITY, UPGRADES,WORK ON IT YOURSELF!!
the stock detent ball is steel and chews up the bolt makes it chop balls
THE GUN STOCK IS A GREAT ENTRY LEVEL MARKER
the barrel is too short
and the detent ball is harmfull to the life of the bolt
BUT I PAYED 60 BUCKS FOR THE GUN AND THE TANK USED AND HAVE SPENT ABOUT 45$ ON UPGRADES AND I HAVE A GREAT MARKER
IT WORKES GREAT ,SHOOTS STRAIGHT, DOESNT CHOP BALLS AND DIDNT COST ME HALF THE RENT TO MY APPARTMENT!!!
IF YOU WANT TO BUY IT, BUY IT. ITS A GREAT GUN. BUT IF YOU BUY IT YOU WILL WANT TO UPGRADE IT. But even after you upgrade it youlle have less than half in it as most of your compeditors and youlle have a great gun thats different and you know what WE JUST MIGHT BE ABLE TO MAKE A BETTER REPUTATION FOR HER
A-5 with dead on universal d/f
lapco 12" bead blasted big shot and 14" all american from smart parts
dead on gas thru
crossfire 68/3000 nitro
i havnt really seen any (or looked for any)upgrades but some people add some crazy stuff like pneumatics somehow, looks pimp when you do it.
pretty durable (been droped a couple of times and it still works)
hard trigger pull
wicked to cock, i've cut myself before
Was my first gun, and it worked well to just learn the sport with. gets a 6 because it isnt so bad compaired to how much you pay for it, got mine for 50 bucks. if you are a total beginer and want a gun better than a pump that you can at least learn the sport with it's not such a bad gun. you can learn the basic internals of a paintball gun because it is so easilly disassembled. However hard trigger pull and inaccuracy hinder the game play for any player who plays often. Never used mine at a pb feild but i've seen people do it.
-Good Accuracy( Even better with new barrel)
-Doesn't break paint
-not very expensive
Here's the bad stuff though:
-Trigger pull is hard, after a few hours, your finger gets sore
-After a few months, the plastic gets loose and starts cracking
-The Stock Barrel stinks
-The CO2 adaptors almost always get stuck and you strip the rings trying to get it open
-You have to upgrade this gun if you want it to work good.
Most people diss Brass Eagle left and right for thier guns, but have they even used BE guns or upgraded them. Using the gun for 1 day doesn't mean it sucks. Anway the Stingray II is one of BE's best acomplishments. MY friend got a 14 Inch Sniper Barrel and he has a more accurate gun than the AutoCoker ( a drawback is that the new barrel breaks balls when rapidly firing)
A drawback is that plastic was not a good choice for this gun, so it starts to crack and get loose as you use it more. This is a good gun for a begginer.
I recommend it
I have used an avenger, point zero, raptor extreme, tippmann 98 custom, mini mag, talon ghost, blade, jt excellerator 4.0. to me all these guns are atleast 2 times better than this gun even the talon ghost and blade,(point zero big suprise) i hate the stingray ive never seen a gun for such a rip off its not worth its price a point zero is 3 times better and cheaper at that to.
stingray II package, everything stock and SMALL BARREL(no accuaracy)
NONE JUST BUY ANOTHER GUN!
i think its good for wannabes, posers, newbies, just because it will make them research into things and find a really really nice gun!
EVERYTHING, smallest chamber I've ever seen leaks prescious air like no other chops a ton of ball breaks in cold weather and u have to clean it alot, my freind dropped it and snapped it in half thats how cheapy it is.
This is the worst gun ive ever seen and what a waist of my money now i have to get a summer job to get a new gun(ENIGMA EXR) theres so many guns that are really bad but more that r good never get black magic autococker ur only buying the looks. If you want a good gun to start off with i recomend the model 83(point zero) air sufficient even comes in a great package(very cheap!)
Umm... that's a good one... lemme think... well... it's fairly light, definately has a unique look, although whether you like that depends on your tastes. Umm... surprisingly decent quality for the price. A very simple gun, making maintenance much lesss scary than other guns. Served me well for a while, then decided to go for buying my spyder TL plus *grin*.
OK, get comfortable, this is gonna be a long one. Ok, this gun was cool the first few times I played with it, but then started suck'n like a hollywood hooker. Accuracy isn't all that great with the gun, shoots kinda inconsistantly (the 6 inch barrel might have someth'n to do with that). The gun is quite loud, although I kinda liked that loud clang sound. The cocking bolt screw comes loose after several shots, ROF sucks, after some time, the sear pivot pin began to come loose with rapid fire, causing my gun to not respond in the heat of battle. Safety is very stiff, and the retaining pins get jammed. Occasional barrelbreaks, and the scariest deffect of this gun, is that the bolt hammer begins to form a lip after several shots, causing even more breaks. This can be fixed however.
Even though overall this gun ain't that great, it performs OK for the price. Very simple gun, mak'n basic maintenance almost hassle free. Gives some problems with time. Making modifications to this gun is a must if you want to use this gun efficiently. However, these modifications aren't as simble as adding an expansion chamber to a gun. You have to do permanent physical alterations to this one. Overall, it's an understadable purchase for the price, though I would recommend saving up just a little more for a better gun.
Barrel--any 12-16" works great, much better than the stock
easy to mod
Accuracy sucks with the stock barrel
I saw this gun used for sale for 5 bucks, i thought what the heck, what do i have to lose. I loaded some scorches into the hopper & the paintballs took a sharp curve-- i mean sharp, at 45 feet it was 3 feet left where i was aiming--so i took it inside & disassembled it. The previous owner didnt take good care of it, so i went to the hardware store & bought new O-rings, some gun oil, & a can of flat-black spray paint. i looked up a repair guide online, rebuilt the gun, & what a difference. it still curved, but maybe by 2 inches at 60 feet. Chopping? it will chop about 1 out of 450 with the metal detent, but file down the bottom of the bolt & use a round bead to replace the detent, & it will chop about 1 in 950. Not the best gun out there, but makes a good backup or second gun for a friend.
Okay, its not an a-5 or a custom 98, but heck, for the price its a decent woodsball marker.
Main: 98C with expansion chamber kit, collapseable stock, and remote line
Loaner: PMI Piranha with flush cocking venturi bolt, gas through fore grip, and stock.
Mission: Brass Eagle Stingray II with two differant J&J Performance ceramic barrels won in a big game at Hole in The Wall Painball; Bangor, MI.
If you can find a better barrel get one
Low cost, quite accurate despite what others may say, light weight.
Can be loud, hard to find parts
This is a good marker for beginners who are uncertain if they want to play, but don't want to use rental equipment. I know most rental equipment is better than a Stingray, but this is the gun that got me started. I enjoyed my first few games with this gun. Even though I switched to a Piranha in late 2000 and then to my 98C in early 2006, I still use my Stingray in Big Games at my local field when I run missions for the team I happen to be on. Also if I feel I need to brush up on my basics a little I will use the Stingray. Because of the lower rate of fire you can learn, relearn, and practice movement and aiming techniques.
I would recommend this marker to the beginner who is just starting out and does not want to use rental equipment. It gives the beginner a little more feel of belonging at the field to be able to bring their own equipment. I would also recommend this marker to someone who runs a lot of missions for props in scenario ball. The The light weight and low rate of fire means less gear to carry so you can run to the objective and return it to where it needs to be on time.

Barrel is a must for this classic
shoots sraight and hard
Trigger pull is very stiff
Terrible drop off
Now forget all the negative things you have heard about this gun. I used this gun when I started playing paintball, and it got the job done. Get a new barrel for this gun trust me it helps so much. The bolt is terrible it scratchs the inside bad, but if u keep it consistantly oiled it will keep that down to a minimum. Dont use a co2 tank any larger then a 14oz, over time it will bend the thing that holds it. Make sure you use only the best paint with the thickest shells for the gun. Never I mean never use cheap paint because it will chop uncontrolibly. Just keep it oiled, use good paint with thick shells and it will not chop half as bad. The trigger pull is pretty stiff, trust me your finger will have a cramp after a day of using it. The gun shoots very straight especially with a new barrel, it will suprise anyone who uses it. It is loud, sounds like your hitting a hammer on a metal pole when it shoots. The gun is durable and shoots very hard trust me it hurts.
I recommend this to anyone wanting a classic or just a gun to have fun with. In my opinion this is the best marker brass eagle has ever produced.
