The best thing about this gun is its cheap parts so you can
do alot of mods on it, sometimes known as the tinkerers
gun, if you check out stinggroup.addr.com/frameindex.html
you can see how you can use things that are in common homes
to upgrade this gun to better than some are higher on the
market, and the constant air fitting on the back, with a
butte plate will make it like a rifle which is great,
especially if you like to sniper like I do, very very easy
to take apart, clean, and lube, a great beginners gun for a
very low price.
the trigger pull is a little long, but i find it bearable,
and a very cheap and easy mod can be done to fix that, the
barrel could be two inches longer, for a little more
accuracy, eats air, only about 20 shots on the 12 gram CO2s
I would and have recommended this gun to all of my friends,
there are a group of eight of us, and 4 have stingrays, i
got it recommended to me, and i recommended it to everyone
else, the aftermarket Eagle Works Barrel from Brass Eagle
is a great barrel, made especially for this gun, and only
costs about 30 dollars, an all in all great deal for the
Very inexpensive. The Stingray can be bought it a Kit which
comes with everything you need to play except a CO2 Tank or
12 Grams, which ever you choose to shoot with. The Stingray
is made out of Zytel which is very strong and durable but
can easily be cut through with a drill or other tools and
this may be its greatest feature. Since the Body is like
this you can modify your gun and add all kinds of feature.
This gun tinkerers best friend. You can modify a Stingray
better than any other gun on the market, make it truly
The stock Stingray's Detent ball is made out of steel so it
creates a dent in the aluminum bolt, but if you buy a
plastic bead to use as a Detent you can fix with problem
with $.10. With barrel is not that great but Brass Eagle
makes a barrel call the Eagle Works Barrel for the Stingray
and it is a great barrel, it costs about $30.
The Best gun you can get for the money, $60 for the Gun,
$120 for the Set. Great starter gun. Accurate, Lightweight,
and Durable. Many easy-to-do Modifications can be done to
this gun to make it a worthy opponent for any Spyder or
The Stingray Semi-auto is one of the most durable things on
the market thanks in no small part to it's strong plastic
casing. It puts up with abuse that would make a more
expensive "Tourney" grade marker break down. The Stingray
is a wonderful beginer's gun that is also popular with
players who like to tweak thier markers and add a home
style flair. The Stingray is inexpensive and available at
chain stores such as Wal-Mart for under $100. Due to the
relative cheapness of parts, home modifications are
feasible and popular. Field dis-assembly is very fast
especially with BE's Quick Strip Pins. The Stingray will
work off of 12 gram CO2, Constant Air CO2, Liquid CO2, HPA,
The Stingray has a very, very distinct sound when fired if
the Constant Air tank is mounted in the original position.
This is easilly fixed with a bottomline or remote setup. It
is not the most efficient with gas, but a regulator easilly
fixes this problem. Out of the box the gun is satisfactory
but is exponentially better when modified.
Excellent marker for beginers and do-it-yourselfers,
however if you enjoy not thinking about your marker, stick
with something a little more up there on the market.
Inexpensive. One of the most used semi paintguns in the
world. Proven reliability. Glass injected nylon exterior,
which provides a very durable and tough shell. All metal
insides. Extremely simple. Decent Accuracy. Eats liquid.
Easy to mod for the "tinkerer", fun project gun. Great for
Can be tempermental. Uses a lot of air. A little on the
heavier side. Long trigger pull.
Excellent begginers gun, considering the following factors:
inexpensive, reliable, rugged, relatively accurate, fun
project gun, insensitive to liquid and will not freeze up,
easy to strip.
It's price you could find them for 40 dollars now a days.
the back-bottle adpater is nice if u are used to rifle
it's plastic shell is really really strong so don't worry
about the plastic.
air efficency isn't the best but i have seen alot
worse.... just make sure u have 2 bottles if ur not at a
field with a station right there
the ray has a VERY VERY VERY VERY..... long trigger pull so
don't expect to be blasting away on the front lines.
this gun has almost no aftermarket upgrades
i compare the ray2 to an AK-47 cheap,rugid, and just
plain easy. field striping this gun is a breeze and is
very quickly done. the internals are extremely simple!. i
reccomend this gun to the new guy who won't get to play
that often but if u think u are gonna be playing frequently
go the extra step to Griffin, Piranha,Tipp98, or F4'99
The accuracy of this gun is really quite good. I was
shooting through small holes from a good distance back.
Your hand can fit into the grip nicely.
Well, the main air tube leaks alot, but can be fixed by
adding more o-rings,. The gun CANNOT be used with large
bore paint, such as Nelson Challenger, because it jams
CONSTANTLY. And it is very bad about conserving air. It
wastes more air than I though I had in my tank.
I would not recommend this gun to anyone but a very new
player, with very limited cash. Also you should know how
the gun works, so if any problems occur, you can fix them.
It doesn not even compare to anything that is $10 more.
Just get a Spyder Compact 2000.
