The Brass Eagle Tigershark Crystal is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Great for beginners and as a back up gun, great price, good accuracy and range, i can beat people that have semi-autos with it, you can get about 45-55 shots with a 12 gram cartridge, it dosen't chop many balls (i chopped about 7 with it), very light trigger pull, very well balanced, strips down with out tools
the pump sometimes gets stuck when your pulling it back to it's starting position
Get this gun (i got in a package for $60). It is very reliable, it never broke down on me and i never had to oil it. Get this gun! Get this gun! Get this gun! Get this gun! Get this gun!
knight raider,16 inch smart parts barrel,low pressure chamber, coiled remote, 20 oz with on/off switch,ricochet ak hopper, subzero 4 stage expansion chamber, oh yah i have a new barrel on the tiger shark
theres not much to upgrade on n theres not much sense dping it anyway
never broke or jams, fires w/o o-rings if u have to
not much except hard to to upgrade
this gun was my first gun and i have had it ever since. i always keep it with me and use it as a back up.u cna put a sight on it and it shoots really acurate(i dont mean a 60$ sight).when i got a new barrel for my boss knight raider i put the old 1 on it and it is even more accurate.never breaks of jams and is really cheap. if u want you can make it like a semi by holding down the trigger and pumping.
its cheap n doesnt break. good a a back up or if you need an extra gun for friends
9 ouch bottle, but plate, longer 12 inch barrel, older black model
but plate, longer 12 inch barrel, bottle cover, full in the handle
easy to use
good on co2
Not really upgradable
i love playing with this gun, i had the most kills and least amoint of death when playing against all semi autos. Also i found that u have to change the way u play to use this gun to it max ability. I am planning to go in to a tournment with this gun as i found it rate of fire to be on par with other guns i have used.
I love this gun and recomend it for any one who want to play with pump.
BEs, Tippmanns, Spyders, Piranhas, Angels, Diablos, Custom built guns, etc.
Good ol' fashioned Tippmann 98 custom with a flatline, Egrip, double trigger and folding stock
Better barrel certainly
Very accurate, CO2 friendly, doesn't chop, easy to clean
Stock barrel is horrid
All in all, this gun isn't that bad. I have an original Tigershark, with the black case, and I've had that for almost 7 years and it hasn't given me any trouble at all. I was lucky enough to have a friend that makes custom barrels, so i have an excellent 14" barrel on it and it works like a charm. If I could find a way to tinker with the velocity, this would make an excellent sniper rifle. It's a great gun for beginners and for people who just want to shoot for the fun of it, but I wouldn't recommend taking it to a course or tournament.

Good for a newbie
is pretty accurate on a full Co2 tank
2.if the Co2 is low its in-accurate
This gun is O.K. for a newbie.
Get a higher quality gun that's not plastic.
If your just starting you might wanna get this gun.
If you've already had other guns do not buy this.
The gun isn't very good it's ok
your getting what you payed for it.
Don't buy unless a newbie.
Stay away from as most Brass Eagles as possible.

None. Sad to say this is my only pump. I also own other low-end markers like a tipp 98c (who doesn't) and a Spyder Victor II (As well, who doesn't)
Tipp 98c w/ J&J Ceramic 14"
none available I am aware of. Upgrades would take the fun out of this gun anyways.
doesn't use much gas. Gives arm nice workout. Good price
No accuracy, stinks to pump, no shot consistency,
I have a lot of fun playing with this marker against my wife and others new to the game to make an even playing field. Other than that it stinks. I do not understand how anyone who has shot any other kind of marker could possibly give this a 10! Seriously, double check your marker and make sure it is a Brass Eagle.
Buy this marker used for $10 to play those new to the game.
98 custom with a double trigger , dead on drop forward (bullet) , and smart parts progressive barrel .
A new barrel , provided that you can find it is good .
Accurate , even with stock barrel
Easy to figure out
Well this was my first gun and I thought it was awesome . I bought it off a friend for 10 bucks and the next day I was out in the woods playing with the big shots of my neighborhood who had autocockers , mags , and one with an Angel LCD . This gun never let me down .
It seems that the newer models are being badly made with cheaper plastic , so , you would be money ahead to buy a older but just as good model .
This was the best use of 10 bucks I ever did .
P.S my rating is for the price and category it's in .
awesome beginner gun..... beginer gun only... it works ..its really good on co2 , easy to use ,dont usually break ,cheap , dont chop to many balls .. its all plastic and it can b hard to clean .... funny barell but it works ok, /// its not to hard to pump .. mines broke cus the plastic morfed but after like a year and a half yaya who cares im done.
above avrege beginner gun, good for anyone who dont got a lot of cash and wants to start paintball

BE Stingray, BE Talon in my opinion, the Tigershark shot better than both of these markers.
98 Custom, stock, (Just bought it, I haven't had enough time for upgrades yet.)
There really isn't much available as far as upgrades, a 9 oz. CO2
Easy to afford
easily accessible to a lot of people
ROF is low, made of plastic, no upgrades, it is made by BE
Well, this was my first marker. It served me well for a year, playing about once a month with a few buddies in the woods. Its great for that. I got the whole package (gun, mask, tank, plug, hopper, squeegee) for about $70. It got me into paintball, and thats probably one of its biggest strengths. I always throw it in my bag when I go to play, because I know there will be someone standing around just watching. I'll toss them an extra mask and my Tigershark and get them into the sport. I also carry it as a back-up when I play big games. (I'm a senario player) Well now on the the actual gun: the acuracy isn't bad considering what the gun is, and who made it. It will usually hit what you aim it at. Like I mentioned earlier, the ROF is quite low, but that can be expected from a BE pump. It did teach me to shoot acuratly, and not to "spray and pray." It doesn't eat gas to badly, I got 600 shots out of my 9 oz. (that was w/ all new O-rings and I think the guy over filled it, but, hey) The barrel really isn't that great, it looks more like something you would buy to fix a leaking sink than a marker barrel. But, there is really no point in spending money to buy an upgrade barrel for a BE product, (if they even make them). The stroke of the pump really isn't to bad if you lube the gun every once in awhile. It is made of plastic, and the place the elbow fits over is starting to crack. A little tape fixes that though. The gun is EXTEREMLY simple, it is about as complex as a blowgun. It is very easy to clean, just pull the pins and everything slides out. The gun is fairly balanced with a 9 oz. and a full 200 rounds hopper, but once you start shooting it becomes a little back heavy. It doesn't chop balls, as long as you know how to shoot a pump. The clear plastic makes it easy to detect double feeds. It has an auto trigger. Thats about it
All-in-all, for what it is, it is not a bad marker. There aren't any upgrades, it is plastic, the ROF is low, and it is BE. However it isn't bad on gas, it is semi-accurate, easy to take care of, and brings people into the sport. It is nothing compared to any type of tourney marker, but then again, its not ment for that. Because of things mentioned here, I'm giving it a 6.
