I would first recommend a new barrel, then a bottomline or expansion chamber maybe even remote coil would work, but remember new barrel,new barrel,new barrel......
affordable,great for a first marker.easy to field strip and uses co2 fairly efficiently
stock barrel LOUD, and not accurate. tilt paint feeder gets annoying (read below)
This is a great start up marker especially if you on a budget. what the marker lacks you can purchase later, you'll eventually want a better barrel. stock barrel is LOUD and not very accurate, then you'll want either a bottomline or something to make the marker easier to carry, with co2 tank connected underneath the marker it makes it feel unbalanced. If you plan to tourney play you'll want to do something about the trigger pull, the stock trigger pull is very long, this can't be adjusted. only a new grip like an electronic grip can fix this. also you might want to change the cocking from up top to the back, this can be accomplished for around 30-40$. this will increase the efficiency of the blow back system. now, my read below comment , the marker has a tilted ball detent feed which can get in the Way. if you have a 200 rnd hopper it makes it difficult to view things to the right. a straight feed is way better, but this also cannot be adjusted. personally i wish i would have had the cash for a much better marker like a Tippmann or Spyder. I certainly don't play enough to make upgrades feasible.
if your strapped for Cash or just play around the house in the backyard I say -get it!-(it's definitely not the worst marker you can buy) but if your looking for a marker that will take you from the backyard to the paintball fields you may consider other options.

*I have (briefly) used a friends pirahana. Which is also a great beginers gun.
*Stingray (briefly) another friends gun. Not nearly as good as this or pirahana
*(Very briefly. like 10 shots) Tippman 98. A great gun
32*Rebel Vert 02 green
32* Whisper barrel 14'
12 oz cromolly co2 tank
extreme rage gravity feed hopper
The stock barrel isn't horrible but at 8 1/2 inches, it could be ported better and longer
Expansion chamber and bottomline would make this a more balanced gun
Should get a rico or revy so balls don't jam
Good Beginner's gun.
Doesn't chop balls in above freezing temps.
Sometimes velocity screw comes undone a little.
But none really.
I like this gun very much. It has woked well for me. My friends have 3.0's, Piranhas, Victors, and my Rebel keeps up well. I bought a 32* Whisper and it has improved accuracy as well as making the gun quieter. An electric hopper can eliminate jams exierienced with any gravity feed loader. A great beginers gun. 2 Friends have them and they work well for them too.
Good gun if you are a begginer. Also look into Pirahanas, Tippmans, or Victors, or Aggresors. They all work well as a begginers gun. Great gun.
All the other rebel guns line such as the rebel extreme. also The spyder sonix and Brass Eagle Maruder
32 Degrees Rebel Vertical with a 14" 32 degrees night stick barrel. A 32 dgrees Rebel02 Electonic gripframe(very nice) and a Rebel factory upgrade. I also bottomlined it.
Definetly a new barrel and a new electronic gripframe can really help with the gun.
Really fast shooting and a real tough and cheap gun. good trigger frame.
The stock barrel and the fact that it isnt bottomline.
This gun is perfect for any begginer or intermediate paintball player. I only payed $90 for it at a pawn shop and the only thing wrong with it that I had to replace so fast was the cup seal. The cup seal was the first thing that broke on this gun. You can get some real nice upgrades for it which is what I did. I wanted to find a nice cheap gun that I could rely on and supe it up so that it works like a tippman and It did. The stock barrel is the only thing that truly sucks on this gun. The barrel is only 7" long and is very very inaccurate unless you like to play extreme short range combat. overall its a great gun, very unique to own. The rebel02 vertical has a little bit different desingn than the rebel vertical. it has a different trigger system (which is really nice) and different body design.
This gun is a really nice gun after you replace the barrel you will have one of the best guns on the field. Do not be afraid to be rough with it, this gun is really tough and the only plastic on it is the trigger hanle frame.

everything.. god.. never forgot an experiance when i jacked my friends rebeal vertical after taking out of the box and oiled the gun.... im the first person took a try of the gun.....and nice little fire works began.....
first ball comes out... woooooo so high..........
second ball comes out... waaaaaa.. splashes....
third ball came out.... weeeeeee..... more paint splashes bigger.. nicer then b4...
forth ball came out... OMG .. paint everywhere on the floor.. need 2 clean up...
and thats the end of our little fire works
not a good marker 2 play with... but then.....
if u wana see FIRE WORKS then highly recomended!!!
Most Blowbacks- Spyders, Infernos, Pirahnas and so on.
Black Rebel VTL02
12 Oz. CO2
Uh.... i think that's about it.
New barrel, something to make it quieter.
Well, i fanned as fast as i could and it didn't chop, which was nice since i wasn't using a revy of any kind. . It's a *gorgeous* gun, and it's actually very simple as far as internals go.Accurate once you get the hang of it,CHEAP ($60). Did i mention it's beautiful? And it looks good too. Powerfeed is a huge plus
*The only really bad thing i noticed was a n00b could mess up some of the internals and put them in backwards, causing HUUUUUUUGE leaks. Not really the gun's fault, tho.
*After Putting some paint through it, i tried to strip&clean it but the connecting pin was stuck. oh well, just wait until it warms up. X_X
*Plastic Grip frame, no biggie. Chrome ones are like $40 bucks, so just get one if ya get the money.
