it doesnt matter what you do it is a horrible gun, all 32 degrees guns are bad
Other than the cheap price their isnt any very unreliable
Breaks orings sear is cheaply made
Buy a pmi starter gun suchas a black maxx one of the most reliable guns in this price range. otherwise save up for a tippmann they are by far the most reliable and inexpensive guns out there. i own a paintball store and sold these guns for a few months. had more returns than anything
Stay away from 32 degrees ive sold them and ill never sell them again
Rebel 02 BL- Green
Expansion Kit Upgrade by 32D
2002 SP All American 2-piece barrel, 14 inch
Foregrip of some kind (Expansion chamber, gas thru, inline reg)
Easy to upgrade
Easy to dismantle
Easy to clean
Long trigger pull
I wanted something reliable and inexpensive to start with. First of all, the gun out of the box is very basic; so upgrades are a must if you want the marker to perform better (or at least better than your opponents).
I've added a new barrell (a must with almost every marker) to improve the accuracy and a regulator (the upgrade kit offered by 32D- same reg as on the Extreme) to make the pressure more consistant. The reg isn't top notch, but it helps.
The weight is nice once ready for play. Some might see the polymer handle as a weakness; I don't. At the end of the day, all of my friends complain about how "heavy" their markers are getting . . . but not me.
I think it is a great gun to start with, but not one for tourney ball. Get a serious marker for that. Otherwise, it has lived up to my expectations. If you are looking for a basic model to start with at a low cost. This is it. BUT REMEMBER- GET A NEW BARREL AT THE SAME TIME.

pro carbine/flatline/2.5x whatever else
rebel02 5.5 inch barrel, delrin bolt, velocity spring
barrel, spring kit for more velocity
Cheap and good for first gun, was upgradable
Inaccurate , not very powerful, electronic grip only semi auto
This gun is alright but it is inacurate and not very powerful , it is great if you can sneak up on someone because it has a good rate of fire. the only upgrade I got for this was the electronic grip , I would not suggest the electronic version of this gun because the frame of the grip was very weak and snaped in half on me and the electronics didn't even make it full auto, shot burst.
Good starter gun and very cheap at about $60 if you dont plan to paintball to much this might be the gun for you.

Rebel Bottom Line 02
1. x chamber
2. drop forward
3. 16" Knockout Barrel
A new barrel
very good accuracy with barrel, good air use, seldom ball breakage, great beginner gun!
loud and crappy stock barrel, with stock barrel it has bad accuracy
This gun is a perfect gun for the beginner who wants to get into paintball but the gun could use a few upgrades and accessories then u could be very good!!! I bought this gun for $145.99 and with a package i got it for $255.99 and i got a great jt mask, 12 oz co2 tank, 200 round hopper, elbow, barrel plug, and a pod!!! If u want to purchase this gun try to look around for good prices and and different packages u can get. Just keep practicin and take care of your gun!!!!
Awesome gun for the beginner that wants to get into some serious paintball!!!
32 degrees rebel 02 bottom line and to be 16" 3A knock out barrel
at least 14 or 16" barrel x chamber and drop forward
good air use, long distance shooting, hard shooter
horrible stock barrel
This gun is a very good beginer and intermediate gun. It shoots hard and has good range, the only problem i have had with this gun is the stock barrel. The stock barrel makes the paintballs fly in different angles the only thing u cant hit with this barrel is the target.
It is a very good gun for a begginer and it is easy to customize this marker. i would recomend this marker to anyone but please buy a new barrel.
Piranha STS G3, Rebel delux, xtreme, any spyder, etc
This is my backup gun. I use an PMI EXT Pro E-Frame.
Easy to find parts
Easy to field strip
Thats about it
I bought this gun as a backup to my main gun.
It shot well out of the box. The barrel is larger bore.
Remember this when buying paint. I was able to shoot
an 10 in circle at 70 feet (about) with one stray missing the 4x8 sheet
of plywood (bad ball mabey). This was in sand bags. I then
switched to my lapco bigshot barrel and it was within a 8 inch
circle. The barrel is not the best and I needed to put a better spring
in to crono it to 285 (my fps prefrence). With a better spring and and the
stock barrel I paid $57 total for it. Not bad for the performance I got.
This is a grest marker for the price. I like the electro trigger. The pull
is light and I think I could shorten it to a mouse click with some tinkering.
I used my eggll on it and could shoot as fast as I could pull the trigger.
Thats all I got to say.
You get a good gun for the money.
I recomend this marker to the beginner as a primary gun.
To the axpert for a backup.
If you take care of it this gun will perform well for years.
none, just don't buy it... But if you already have one(and you should already know this) a new barrel, exp. chamber, bolt, hopper
sucks out of the box...
I have 3 friends who got this gun at the same time. Within 3 months, all of them had sent theirs to the factory for repairs. Two of them had to send them twice. They're very unreliable. If you're looking for a starter gun, go with a piranha. They're simple, easy to understand, very reliable, and pretty good out of the box.
Well now bob long bolt -14 inch progressive barrel - on off switch
Barrel - bolt
price - trigger pull after i said after a little filing.
No accuracy stock barrel - long trigger pull
I bought this gun last spring and it worked like a charm. To cut the trigger pull all you have to do is take the trigger frame off the mainbody of the marker and file down the trigger part which the sear catches on to reduce trigger pull by litterally half. Enough filing will result in the capability as using the safety as the trigger stop which is beutiful.
Ok enough of that performance of this gun is quite descent given the fact that it is a newbie gun and it cost 70 dollars. Accuracy is better than epected with the new bolt and the new barrel. apart from that this marker has just failed me. it is worn down. even though it hasnt been used very much. AND THIS PISSED ME OFF ALOT, the threads of the boottom line adapter are so long that you waste half of a tank just taking off your tank but easily fixed with a on off valve.
Dont buy it. Buy the most reliable gun on the market. The well designed 98 custom
Rebel '02 BottomLine with a 14" J&J Ceramic Barrel and a Bob Long Expansion Chamber.
New barrel and an Expansion Chamber
-Good on Co2
-Feed is not as fast as possible
This is a damn good gun. Shoot Straight. Light-weight and easy to carry. But this gun could use a faster feed. I would like it to have a vertical-feed and it is loud but, It hasn't chopped any balls up and i haven't had any problems with it yet.
This is a good gun but it needs some upgrades. It is cheap and easy to find upgrades for it. I give it a 9 cuz the upgrades that you need to buy.
The Rebel02 Bottomline is the marker I first started the sport of paintball with. I have ahd my ups and downs with the marker. Itsf inish brings a nice look to the frame as the frame is very durable. The marker can be upgraded for better performance in many ways the one if you wish to spend an equal amount of money.
The stock barrel is incredibly loud and inaccurate, however a decent barrel can fix this problem. The worst problem I had with the marker, is the problem of loading two balls into the breech and firing them both (sometimes three) out of the barrel if you fired fast. Ball breaks and soup were quite frequent as a result. Purchasing an autoloader will better control the pace of fire and ball feed, however I noticed that the rubber ball detent does not last all to long. I have been through at least 8 or 9 since I first bought the marker. Once this is taken care of, and my upgrade to air for the winter, the marker is fairly accurate with am average semi automatic rate of fire.
The gun is affordable for most rec players, however I would get to know it before taking it to the speed ball court. I got mine for $45 on clearance, however I see they usually run from $70 to $80.
Overall, if the double feed problem is fixed, the marker is good for beginners
