Great gun for me, never lets me down.
Shoots straight, doesn't break balls.
Had to order a free barrel, not really a bad thing is it?
OK, before I got my gun, I read here thatt the barrel sucks, so I went to the 32 degrees website and ordered a free replacement barrel for the PT Xtreme which I put on my rebel. It kicks ass!
This is the barrel:
To get it, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for a replacement barrel for the Pt Xtreme!
There ya go!
2K1 Autococker, Black w/ Silver Splash - Smart Parts Freak System, DYE Ultralite Boomstick, Shocktech Front End Pneumatics, Shocktech Superfly Bolt, Shocktech Cocking & Timing Rods, AA Vigilante LP Regulator, DYE Dropforward, DYE 45 Frame w/ Roller Sear + Sticky Grips.
If I were to upgrade this gun I'd have to include a motorized hopper, a 9 volt Revy should be fine, and a quality regulator.
They finally put some 45 grip frames on the Rebel. Uses Spyder barrels, so that adds to versatility some. People say they will chop balls, but like any of the similar guns I've used, it can mostly be attributed to one of two things: balls arent being feed completely before bolt moves forward and they are chopped (get a motorized hopper) or it is too cold out and the balls are extra brittle (play in warmer weather.... duh).
Nasty angle on the trigger. I prefer a single trigger to begin with, but really the Piranhas double trigger is much nicer, it drops straight down and is lighter in my opinion.
Not a bad gun really. Would I take it over a Spyder. I don't know, I really wish i had taken a closer look at it's bottomline setup and hoselines while it was in my hands. Spyders are a big pain in the azz, what with their metric threading and off-set BLs, and if the Rebel uses the same crap, then I want nothing to do with it. The Piranha is still the best of them in my opinion, it uses Spyder barrels, standard BLs and hoses, and you don't have to look to hard to find upgrades. Plus the G3s have probably the easiest break down of all the blow-backs in it's league.
horrible stock barrel, the bolt system and all the problems i had with it
I bought this gun as my first gun and out of the box it did not work it already, it leaked c02 like a bat out of hell. And later once I had repaired that leak, it shot about 200 paintballs and then started leaking again (broken o-ring, fixed it still leaked, then oiled it, still leaked). And once I had that leak fixed I took it out to test fire and it shot about 10 feet before the balls dropped and hit the ground, and then it started leaking again. Now I have made it stop leaking, but when I pull the trigger even the smallest amount it rapid fires and un-cocks itself.
i don't recomend this gun for anybody you might as well save your money and get a lower end spyder
Good for a newbie
It works pretty good on brass eagle balls
and the fact that it can take spyder parts
It freezes up A WHOLE FRIEKIN LOT LIKE EVERY 50-100 shots. The barrel is pretty darn short. It can't shoot nitro.
Get it if your a newbie with not much money and don't play a whole lot. But if you play a lot don't get it, or you might get made fun of at the field. That happened to my friend. I give it a 5 cause it's just about average.
I like this marker, I have it with an electric trigger and left feed and it's pretty decent. The feedneck get pretty annoying and new parts are extremely hard to find. If you lose a detent be prepared to make one like I had to with some autococker hose and a knife. I looks very nice, 9.0 outta 10 on the Shiny Scale.
I would only really recommend this marker to someone who has experience with stacked tube blow backs because this marker is pretty fragile
new trigger, its a far pull, and Idk if you can upgrade the ball detent, but the little rubber ones get eaten.
VERY reliable, pretty accurate [with new barrel], doesn't chop balls
trigger pull, ball detent, freezes O-rings (in gun) sometimes, ohh and stock barrel.
Okay I've had this gun for around 4 or 5 years, and the only thing that has given me problems was the bottomline hose got a little leak, so i had to replace that, and the ball detents get eaten pretty quick. Other than that this gun is great for begginers up to your intermediate players.
If I could change anything about the rebel bottomline I would change the ball detent mechanism. and the stock barrel.
Doesnt chop balls for me
stock barrel sucks
waists some Co2 when screwing-unscrewing
I got this gun bought a hopper, co2, used it for 2 weeks then bought a longer barrel and buying a longer barrel makes it so much better. I have enjoyed this gun for a long time when it was my 1st gun used it alot and had good times.
If you want to start Paintball buy this gun its cheap you can get cheap upgrades and works great, lots of fun to use it, had good balance i enjoy using it alot.
Rebel 02 Bottomline with 14 in. Carbon Barrel, X-chamber, and E-trigger
Does'nt Waste Co-2
Does'nt tend to chop many balls
I could'nt find any
I actually bought this gun in a large storage tote that was for spare parts, it had at least 100 guns in it. I offerd the guy that had it $85 and he accepted to get the stuff out of his way. Whilst digging through the tote I come across the Rebel... Slapped a tank on it and it shot great. So I upgraded it a bit and been usin it ever since.. works great.
All in all Its an amazing gun for the price, It just needs to be upgraded a little bit if your a more expeirenced player, but its real nice for someone new to the game, especially if you like to play like me and my friends and play woodsball.
chipley series 5, trilogy cocker,sheridan xts,spyder victor

Any other gun
The gun itself
This thing sucks i had bought it for my friends to use when we play pball and right out of the box it was broken i fixed it 3 times that day and it continued breaking here is the only advice to do with your rebel bottomline 02 blow it up!!!! and trash it.
Never buy this gun unless your looking to waste money or you just like broken guns!
