Brass Eagle unleashes the Striker, A new rec-ball field grade marker in the Ageis series.
Top cocking, Wih quick strip pin for fast maintenance at any time.
Gas-Thru fore grip that helps steady you're shot.
Custom "Blade Double Trigger" that makes it easier to achieve higher rates of fire.
Built in Drop forward/bottom-line that centers the tank under the gun and allows for a lower profile during play.
Vertical high rise feed port to allow taller ball stacks for faster rates of fire.
Ported barrel for increased accuracy and less noise.
Built in gun safety.
The Striker is capable of firing 5 BPS.
With the Striker's stunning good looks you'll be sure to turn a few heads.
The Brass Eagle Striker is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I've shot other Brass Eagles and other markers mechanical, electric, high end, low end etc.
Mokal Aura, Invert Too Hopper, 14" "Lucky" Barrel, 3000 psi Pure Energy Tank
PCS-US5, 14" PCS US5 Commando Barrel

Their aren't really any unless you feel like getting creative.
-Not bad for it's price
I have found that all of the reviews about this for the most part are a) Out of date or b) Exceptionally biased to either side. I'm going to write this as up-to-date as possible and not hate it because I've used better markers or those love it because they haven't. This marker was my first but I have gotten many more since then but I still have 2 of these in the basement. Firstly this marker as well as all Brass Eagles is 100% plastic except for the internals. This causes the obvious problem of making it prone to breaking. Neither of mine have ever experienced any shell breakage but thats not to say it couldn't easily happen. The paintball markers are also very light because of the plastic. The barrel is also fixed and made out of the same plastic as the rest of the marker and by this logic it isn't overly accurate. The spread isn't terrible but it is pretty mediocre about a 6" spread every 50.' The barrel is unported and is fairly loud but nothing unbearable. The marker is equipped with a double trigger which some like but I am not overly fond of. I find the trigger pull a little too long and strong to make it useful for myself. The cool thing about having this marker as my first is that it is very simple to take apart and it taught me marker maintenance so it is a decent first marker for that reason because even a 10 year old can pull it apart without any help. I brought it to a game once just for fun and used it for an evening but it really shines as just a fun thing to play with on the farm when playing with friends.
I would recommend this marker to anyone looking for a marker to just play around with in their backyard with friends but not to people looking to get into any play at 'real' fields. For what it's worth it is a decent marker, it won't compete with a Bob Long or anything but for $80 you can get anything you need to start out playing paintball and unlike some starter markers this should not turn you off of the sport unless you get a defective one or break it yourself.

Usually comes with everything needed to play
Stands out in the field
Makes you feel cheap
Chops like a blender
This gun, although cheap, is not recommended for anyone wanting to get into paintball. The striker chops paint every other shot or every shot put in it. The feedneck is not interchangeable unless you make a notch in the neck and use a hose clamp and make your own neck. Bottom line, buy something else.
I bought this gun as an extra to lend to others or to use myself cause my first PB Gun sucked and malfunctioned a lot. I Bought this at K-Mart 3 years ago for $40. When I first fired the gun I was impressed how well it shot. The gun shot smoothly and didn't malfunction. After 3 years the gun chops ball every now and then but it stills shoots good. The only drawback is the stock barrel can't be removed and its a pain to clear if a ball gets jammed. Also its not very accurate and you can't replace the barrel (although its not worth replaceing).Recently I found another BE Striker at K-Mart on a clearence rack for $10. Hey for $10 you can't go wrong. It just means I have one more gun to lend to another potential target uh I mean player :)
I would recomend this gun for a beginner who just starting out in the game. Its not a super good gun but it gets the job done. Its also CHEAP and if you realize you don't like the sport you won't be out a lot of money. I personally have enjoyed using this gun and others who borrowed it from me all think its a good gun.
I recommend a new gun if you want to upgrade, cause you cant do anything except for the hopper.
Easy to strip,
Doesnt chop that much,
Good for beginner.
Not very accurate,
Hopper gets in way.
Its a cheap and easy gun for beginners but the fact that you cant do anything with it sucks pretty bad. This is the first gun I owned and its alright for the first few games, only chopped once. Do not chop the gun because the accuracy goes totally wack! You could not shoot a target 6 feet in front of you, it curves extremely and does not clean itself. The last time I played with it I put it on the ground (florida ground is mostly sand) to put a pod into a guy's harness, and when i picked it back up the whole thing was plugged with sand and it was horrible! The gun would barely shoot once before recocking it yourself (if you could). It was so full of sand that you could not clean the gun on field so i had to take it home and wash it and re-oil it.
I put it back together and tried shooting it, which worked but it would not recock. I read the manual that came with it and said that the striker inside the gun probably had no o-ring. I took it apart again and the manual was right it had no o-ring. So I went to the store and got an o-ring which I replaced and re-oiled the striker and tried to put it back which was tough to get inside of the gun. I took it outside and shot it clean with no paint. It would not recock itself so I pretty much gave up hope on this gun.
I recommend that you save your money up for a better gun because it will last you way longer than 5 games. I also say that you should look up more reviews on different guns before you go buying one off of a store shelf.
completly stock (cannot mod at all)
viewloader quantum hopper
Unaccurate at times
Great gun all around reccomended for any player cheap price good quality i have shot thousands of cheap walmart balls ive never chopped one ive used the gun for speedball and woodsball works great with both great gun for children because its lightweight and cheap but the gun can hit hard
I was around 11 years old when I bought this. I thought that I could get away with getting the cheapest gun on the market, I was wrong. First of all, this is made of plastic, yes, plastic. You cannot remove the plastic barrel either. The bolt sounds like it will explode . It is also a gas hog. It is loud and cheap.
Do NOT buy. This is very cheap quality. I would reccoment a tippy for $150-$200. Paintball is expensive, cope.

Pretty bad accuracy
I didn't find this gun very comfortable
This was my first marker I ever bought. I bought this marker because I did not have very much money and did not need a great gun as I am a beginner. The first time I shot, it was not very accurate and I had trouble hitting people. If there were some upgrades (Barrels, stocks, etc.) I think I would've liked this gun more.
This is a good gun for beginners and people who don't have much money. Or people who just wanna play
