-Barrel is not very accurate
-Field striping pins SUCK
If you have not got into the sport yet and need a very cheap gun to get you started and see even if you like to play, this gun might be good for you. But if you want to buy a good one to start out, you most likley will not like the Stingray 2. I bought this gun for around $80 as a kit and it has done what I wanted it to do, get me started, and now I am thinking about traiding this one in and buying another just after 4 months of using it
Hmmm... let me think... it's:
*Inexpensive (sort of)
*Mods are easy and inexpensive to perform
*Good door stop
*Tie it around your bratty little cousins or that cocky kid with the Angel and have fun just watching them wiggle around
I guess that's it
*It's got a stiff safety(It's too hard!)
*You must have arms the size of a football to cock this thing
*It's very inaccurate
*It leaks air from different places
*No matter how many mods it still sucks
*The ball detent ruins the bolt
*Barrel too short to make use of it(I like ehm long)
*Breaks balls at a steady pace not matter if you got a new barrel or shooting expensive paint
*Cocking lug comes off rather easily
It sucks(Did I say sucks too much?) I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I bought this gun I don't care how many mods you put into this gun it still won't be any good. It's a nice gun for those that only got into paintball for maybe a month and then go on with their little lives. I don't like this gun broke down on me the 3rd time I used it. Since then I've being spreading the news to my neighbors and fellow co-workers, "Don't buy this gun or anything w/ the name brass Eagle(except for the masks and the Revy's) You'll get jipped off and will be sorry about it." You're better off saving your money and buying a Spyder, Piranha or a Tippmann.
Economic and durable, reasonably accurate. Short barrel makes the gun good for indoor fields where space is limited. Short barrel also forces you to get up close and personal in the game, not sit back and hose from afar. Easily upgradable, replacement parts are dirt cheap. Oh yeah, very lightweight.
LOUD!! Detent ball is stainless steel and can put a nice ding in the aluminum bolt over time. However you can replace the steel ball with a synthetic one ( plexiglass or teflon works good, plastic beads from your arts & crafts store work fine too). People sneer at this gun wholesale.
If you like to tinker, or you are just looking for an economical way to kick ass, then get this gun. Upgrades are limited only by your immagination. Check out www.stinggroup.addr.com for everything you culd ever want to know about this great little gun. It's money well spent.
it has a sight rail so you can see where you're aiming, unlkie most guns now days. it looks ok, I guess? It does seem to be part way duable though.
it's long, loud, plastic, bulky, heavy, c/a adaptor kinda in the way, unbalanced, bad trigger, the front bolt gets destroyed by the metal detent ball, terribly unaccurate, brass eagle product need I say more.
even if you're a beginer stay away, because in about 6 months you will realize the mistake you've made. put out a few more bucks and get a model 98.
the good thing about this product is that its very durable had mine for so long now and it hasent broke maybe i had it for 2 yrs. it is also very accurate and very powerful. i dont know why people say this gun is a begginers gun. dont let those people that say oh its brasseagle it sucks fool u they r just stupid little ****'s who dont know what they talking about
hmm it will need a new barrel if u want to be a snap shooter it is accurate without it but a new barrel would help if u wanna shoot the long distances.
well i got my gun at walmart in a package that was $83 it came with mask 200 round hopper video elbow co2adaptor and a couplke other things i cant remember like a squeege and something else. i saw it online for $56 at xtreme prices.com but if u totall everything up walmart had it cheaper. this gun i a good beginner gun and a good advanced gun get it if you r just starting out it is a good gun to get you into the world of paintball but look around this gun can be expensive if u dont look. it compares well to other guns my friend has an intimidator and even though he beets me alot (turbo mode) i can stil beet him w/ my stingray about 4 outa 10 games i win and thats actually pretty damn good because intimidator is da bomb though it costs near $1000 i would recommend this to a person who wants to get his beginner gun upgrade or someone thats starting out it was my starting gun and i stil have it cant go wrong with it
Umm... that's a good one... lemme think... well... it's fairly light, definately has a unique look, although whether you like that depends on your tastes. Umm... surprisingly decent quality for the price. A very simple gun, making maintenance much lesss scary than other guns. Served me well for a while, then decided to go for buying my spyder TL plus *grin*.
OK, get comfortable, this is gonna be a long one. Ok, this gun was cool the first few times I played with it, but then started suck'n like a hollywood hooker. Accuracy isn't all that great with the gun, shoots kinda inconsistantly (the 6 inch barrel might have someth'n to do with that). The gun is quite loud, although I kinda liked that loud clang sound. The cocking bolt screw comes loose after several shots, ROF sucks, after some time, the sear pivot pin began to come loose with rapid fire, causing my gun to not respond in the heat of battle. Safety is very stiff, and the retaining pins get jammed. Occasional barrelbreaks, and the scariest deffect of this gun, is that the bolt hammer begins to form a lip after several shots, causing even more breaks. This can be fixed however.
Even though overall this gun ain't that great, it performs OK for the price. Very simple gun, mak'n basic maintenance almost hassle free. Gives some problems with time. Making modifications to this gun is a must if you want to use this gun efficiently. However, these modifications aren't as simble as adding an expansion chamber to a gun. You have to do permanent physical alterations to this one. Overall, it's an understadable purchase for the price, though I would recommend saving up just a little more for a better gun.
