This hot new semi-automatic marker features an aluminum body w bottomline adaptor, power feed adaptor, vacuum chamber, top cocking bolt, double trigger, barrel plug, 7/8" elbow and owner's manual. Also available in green, blue, or silver.
The 32 Degrees Rebel (Bottomline) is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Tippman 98, PMI Traccer Semi(sucked) and my Brass Eagle Tigershark.(pump, but a great gun)
Rebel Bottomline with .45 grip, X-chamber, 20oz, and 14" 32 Degrees Terminator.
New bolt, X-chamber, new barrel, new grip.
Very, very reliable. I suggest that as soon as you get this gun, replace the grip with a .45 metal one. Spyder grips will not work, you have to order the grip. The .45 grip was the best thing to happen to the gun. The original plastic pile of poopie broke off my 3rd game. The plastic one is attached by one long screw, and the threads inside the handle fell out, thus destroying the grip. But, I replaced it, and I'm incredibly pleased. The .45 grip is strong, awesome looking, has a faster trigger pull, and is just way, way better. BUY A NEW GRIP! Also, the Rebel was outperforming Tippmanns in wet, 30* weather. The outside of my gun was caked with ice, and while everyone else's marker was malfunctioning, the rebel shot wonderfully. The gun is reasonably precise, doesn't do too bad at high velocity. It doesn't chop much paint, just make sure that you clean it right away if you chop even one ball. It's reasonably quiet, and very light.
The only bad thing I can think of is the damn grip. Buy a new one, and you'll be set. Also, the gun is a little off-balance with my 20oz, and it vents a lot of gas when I remove the tank. Once, I went to put my 20oz on it during a game, and as soon as it was on, snow shot out of every possible opening of the gun. I took off the tank, and brought it to my local paintball shop, and the owner took it apart and put it back together, and suddenly, it worked fine. I still don't know what's wrong with it.
Buy this gun. It'll outperform Tippmanns any day. If you're unsure of what to get for under $200 MSRP, buy a Rebel BL. Or better yet, a Rebel LE, or deluxe. Great newbie gun, and for serious players, if you trick it out, it rocks.

Samuri(POS), Spyder, & Tippman Compares to the Spyder and Tippman good i thought.
Rebel Bottomline w/ 12oz tank Nyte Stick14" a new bolt and sight rail
New Barrel, new bolt, 45 grip frame w/ some good grips, and expansion chamber or regulator leave sight rail off kinda gets in way.
Shoots good not noisy after improvements and shoots better, reliable, If u get a 12oz it gets balanced nicely. if u get a bigger tank get a pack w/ remote. U can take it apart easily and put it back together. Doesnt leak air. Light and nice feel.
grip sucks and needs a 45 frame cause u cant get good grips w/out one, bright colors=sometimes spotted easily, barrel sucks, bolt chops some kinds of cheap paint and dont get some of the smaller bore paint cause it will role out of the barrel. Owners manual sucks
This is a great marker to start w/ and w/ improvments it can be one of the best at the local feild. Buy it if u want a good quality marker and upgrade it to have a great one. Get a new barrel definitly or port the stock one. That is the worse thing.
Rebel with a bottom line, remote system, a 12 in. 32 degrees Nite Stik
Get a 14 in Terminator, a bottom line, and good paintballs
I think that this gun is the best gun under $120. It has a really light trigger pull, relatively consistant velocity, and soots pretty good with a new barrel. With the stock barrel, you almost have to suck so that your own paintballs don't curve around and hit you in the back of the head. If put it under water for about a minute and it still shot and I didn't have to clean it or anything. The top cocking bolt is very nice.
The stock barrel is very bad (loud, paintballs curve, coppes balls)
That is pretty much it for the bad.
This is an excellent gun for anyone. The only thing wrong with it is that you need to buy a new barrel. There are quite a few upgrades for it and it is and pretty cheap gun. I gave it a nine because there is always room for improvement.
DEFINATELY A NEW BARREL, and if you play in the cold you'll need an expansion chamber!
Its a nice simple gun, easy to take apart and clean and alot of little things can be done to it. Upgrades are easy. I don't have too many problems with paint, and it shoots pretty nice if cleaned. Definately needs a new barrel. Never had a leak or any problems with the trigger or bolt.
STOCK BARREL STINKS. It chops cheap paint easily. When a ball breaks, it doesn't shoot through at all. You must take the time to clean the barrel. If your gun isn't clean, don't expect much. It is a lot of upkeep.
Nice cheap gun to get yourself into paintball. Very easy to use, clean, and shoot. Well worth the $90 I paid for it, and you can get them cheaper online!
A few borrowed guns Stingray, Brass Eagle pump, Tippman model 98 or whatever people let me borrow. This is the first gun that IS mine.
Ran stock for most of my first season. I have since upgraded by adding a new barrell and X-chamber. been using standard hopper and 20oz CO2 tank.
Definetly replace the stock barrell and it would be a good idea to get an expansion chamber.
So far It's been the most reliable gun I've used. The only time it broke any paint is my own stupid fault for leaving my paint in the hot car in 90 degree heat and being dumb enough to try to use it partially melted.
It's more accurate (with new barrell) than any other gun I've fired (except tippman flatline)
Good ROF (rate of fire) the double trigger helps with that. also takes electronic triggers for spyders for even faster shooting.
easy to work on. only tools needed are allen wrenches and the design is simple (easier than spyders)
Top cocking bolt is good if your'e left handed like me
and best of all IT'S CHEAP! (savings mean more cash for upgrades)
The stock barrell bites. (but what stock barrell don't) also if you play in slightly colder temperatures, an expansion chamber is a must! my bottom line froze and broke(started leaking a little) on a 63 degree day.
also if you do buy one, take it apart and check the O rings and lubricate it. mine did not come lubed from the box but I was smart enough to check.
Good starter gun and a great poor man's gun. Cheap reliable (if taken care of)
and it just looks just as good as most more expensive guns after a few upgrades it will shoot as good if not better than some of the said expensive guns. My friends and I were impressed by this gun's abillity to keep up with model 98's, decked-out spyders, and even a couple automags. that's why I give it a 10.
Tippmann 98 Custom- owned a BE Tigershark, but that's nowhere near the Rebel.
Stock Rebel BL w/ (sort of) Drop Forward
New barrel, Expansion Chamber, Rear cocking bolt
-Works AWESOME in cold weather
-Fast, light trigger pull
-Pretty darn precise
-doesn't break paint
Leaks ALOT of C02, only getting about 600 shots off of a 20oz. The bottomline is huge, therefore, keeping a substantial amount of gas in the gun. I get about a 10 second hiss when I take my tank off.
Also, the stock barrel is loud, and only 9.5 inches.
It's inconsistent- using $5- 500 Proballs, I broke every other ball, but using the same exact balls the next day, I didn't break a single one.
The bottomline is not very sturdy, and it feels like it's going to break off with a 20oz attached.
All in all, a good gun, REAL CHEAP, best for newbies, and if you trick it out, an awesome expert gun.
I have used a tippman 98 and a pro carbine, those guns don't compare the rebel, the rebel is a much much much better, it's light, accurate, durable and very reliable, I also have a BE tigershark for my back up ( nice looking, light an accurate0
Rebel bottomline with a 12" dye excel (Very accurate and not loud) , ACI Sub Zero X-Chamber( 6 stage) and a comouflage body.
Aftermarket Barrel and a X-chamber
First of all the price is great, I got mine for a 100 some dollars with pakage (worth all the money i payed for it and more)
Light, it is very easy to carry and move around with
accurate, with a aftermarket barrel this gun is very very accurate last sunday i hit a guy from about 60 yrds away straight on the chest( that was one of the many )
Durable I hav given it some harsh treament from time to time but never let me down( Always 100%%)
Very easy to field strip
Nothing really unless you consider a light accurate an durable market some thing bad,
Some people say it's a want to be spyder but i have never seen my rebel break down like so many spyders do.
great gun worth all i payed fo it and more, If you want a great gun get this one you will not be sorry, great for every level of play( Just add a few upgrades)
as for every other gun
tippman 98 and traccer S/A. tippmann i about simalar...traccer stinks but is in same price range.
32 degrees rebel bottom-line. home installed rifle sight. lol (hey it works with an accurate gun. and this gun is very accurate.)
anything u please
insane velocity for the gun
not many ball breaks
u can hold it still to take a sniper shot even without a gas-though-foregrip
show room looks
light trigger pull
balls go in the same spot consistantly
little loud, echoes like a shot gun when ur in the open. lol but doesnt give off position
exelent gone for the $. I would pay $90. but i got mine for a misely $60!!!! brand new!!! paintball_addict at ebay is sellin them. NEW!! buy one now! u wont regret it!! buy it now!
32 degrees Rebel bottomline with an aftermarket gas through fore grip and a night stikk barrel. I also shoot the best paint ever Diablo Blaze!
Gas Through fore grip or a expansion chamber (even better but I am on a budget). Aftermarket barrel 32 degrees whisper or night stikk. And just shoot quality paint. NO BE!
This is a great first gun that is really easy to field strip and has tons of upgrade potential. With a couple of upgrades this can be turned into a respectable marker. The double trigger has an increadbly short trigger pull. You can easily get it up to 8 or 9 balls per second. It also comes in great colors mine is green but that is a personal preferance. The power feed is a great addition just make sure it is turned on when u are ready to play.
The bad things about this gun are the stock barrel is like shooting through a lead pipe (is there such a thing as a good stock barrel). Also if you are an idiot the power feed may be turned off when u begin to play and no balls will load into the firing chamber. That is really all not much to say here.
This is a great gun for any first timer and will keep u satisfied for quite a while. With a few siple upgrades this has the potential to be a solid gun so go buy one.
