The Marauder sets the standard for value priced, polymer, semi-automatic markers with features that include a one step quick pull field strip pin for easy maintenance, metal internals, self-cocking velocity adjustment, right hand feed, custom designed trigger guard, double finger trigger, newly redesigned side cocking knob, and bottom line adaptor.
The Brass Eagle Marauder is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Brass Eagle Marauder with Brass Eagle Electronic Point Sight,200 Count Hopper with Elbo,JT Goggle Setup,and 9oz Refillable co2 Tank.
I would recommend the Brass Eagle Electronic Point Sight and a longer barrel if you are a sniper like me.
It is very accurate and a good gun for newbies like me.
I love this gun and it has never given me any problems.
This is a great gun that is accurate and looks cool for the people that like that. if you want this gun at a good price get it at Bass Pro Shop and if you want the Brass Eagle Electronic Point Sight you can get it for a good price at Wal-Mart.
I would really recommend this gun for people just getting into the game.
I think its a good gun for a beginner but not for field play, NO WAY!
Definitly change the barrel it slices the balls, and when shooting keep under 210FPS unless you wanna be a butcher.
I think you could put the laser sight or whatever on it, it may help.
P.S. WEAR GOGGLES, THE PAINT SPRAYS ALOT!
Not bad for price, good for beginners I think it aint bad.

JJ ceramic barrel, 32* x chamber on a BE Eradicator/Marauder
Barrel, x-chamber, hopper
cheap, shots hard, spyder threads
This is my first and only gun. I got this gun and package for $40. I've always liked my gun even though it's not the best one out there. I've done most of the upgrades that you'll see scrolling down. I think this gun has manufacturing inconsistencies because my gun shoots ok with the stock barrel. The marker can be broken down very easily and maintained easily too which is great when your just getting started. This is not a tourney gun but a good starting gun which is what BE wanted.
I know there are better guns out there but this one works fine. I say get a cheap gun to make sure that your going to get into paint-balling and then when your skills have improved move up to a better marker when you know more about the sport.
Low priced for beginners
Upgrading barrel improves gun
Stock it chops balls and is not very accurate
I bought the gun as a first timer getting into the game. The gun does chop balls, use a lot of CO2, and is not very accurate, but upgrading or replacing things like the barrel and bold, and tuning things like the velocity and hopper elbow, improve this gun a lot. The gun is very light compared to the other guns i've tried, and is very easy to disassemble.
It's good for people just getting into the game, or for the occasional recreational player. To get the most out of it you can't leave it stock.
I bought this gun and used it for a while. Its an ok gun. but about a few weeks after the guarantee on it is over the thing breaks. The striker bolt gets striped after you use it for awhile and costs $20 for another. For this gun Id say forget it and get something a little better.
I recomend this gun to anyone who wants to use it for a few months untill the get a better one
this gun has some problems with chopping. :WARNING: STAY AWAY FROM TOURNEY GRADE PAINTBALLS!
this gun is great for noobs like me. i like the looks and the shot groupings i got were very close. but you should reallllllllyyyyyyyyyy stay away from marbs, they choppd almost every other shot. and sometimes they broke soooo much that it wouldnt even feed because it was too full with paint. buy a good barrel like a cp 1 peice barrel. turn the fps down wen you first get it. mine works great.
im not comparing it to any high end guns. it is still great for a beginner gun. go out and buy it if you havent owned a gun before or if you like to mod a cheap gun. i got it for 40 dollars . i give it a 9
Eradicator, Stock barrel, Projected dot laser sight, D ring attached sling for between matches. ( I trust no one ). The tests have been done with less expensive paint at first and then just a hodge podge of whatever people at the field would dump in my hopper! It became the "joke paint test" All of the paint clean but notheless it was ALL different and totally inconsistent paint types and colors and the marker has kept up and did not chopped one ball!
Barrel must go! A barrel in the range of 14" would be a nice upgrade. Possibly have the porting start at the 10" spot. Remember that acceleration stops at the first port. I have read some articles that say that Avenger and Spyder barrels will fit on this marker. At the time of this review I had not heard back from my airsmith to confirm this.
GET A THUMB SCREW TYPE ELBOW FOR THE HOPPER!! These are about $3.00 and will save you lots of hassle.
Lightweight! 500 rounds and never chopped a ball. Chrono'd hot at 350fps.
Make sure that your hopper is attached well!
Lightweight composite body makes this marker balance out nicely with a 14 oz CO2 tank. In fact this balanced the whole unit out so nicely that it could be shot at full extension of the arm accurately. The field strip on this marker is easy to do and get back together even if you have never opened a marker in your life.
I believe this marker kit was priced as a very good deal at $65.00 with mask, barrel plug, swab, and stock sight. Some will tell you some terrible things about this marker. I will tell you that all you need to stay in the game with this marker is some simple common sense practices that normally apply to all markers( some markers are more dumb proof than others) Before the match make sure that barrel is clean, clean, clean! If you need to stay out one round and use those speed field strip pins to remove the bolt and hammer spring and clean it. After you get it back together stop back at the chrono as it may have changed with the disassembly. Also remember that if you think you need a new marker after you have made the purchase of one of these, most of those paintballs someone laid on you in the last match were from junky abused RENTAL markers.
new barrel, the handle is uncomfertable, its a plastic gun.
you can aim with it since the balls go in by the side
the barrel feels to small, handle is uncomfertable.
When i tried this gun i didnt know what a good paintball was back then, so i thaught is was a pretty good gun, then i got genesis surge and it just so much better, and i know theirs much better guns then genesis surge, but liked this gun because it felt good when you shot it didnt have to much power but it didnt feel to week.
I recomend this gun to people who arent gonna get into paintball very much, this gun not good on the field
it just sucks. it blew back paint into the hopper and busted it and then I took it apart and I realized it was put together wrong. that solved the problem but, later the valve just died. and on top of that it isn't even as accurate as a talon or blade with plastic barrels! they had to actively try to make a marker this bad! oh, well.
if you buy this, I will kill you there are better markers cheaper.
