The Stingray II Ice is the latest version of the popular Stingray II entry level semi-automatic marker. This marker is made from the finest clear, impact resistant plastic available and is virtually indestructible! It's perfectly balanced for a steady aim and perfect shot . Its performance/price relationship is unmatched in today's marketplace. It's predecessor, the Stingray II, is the world's number one selling semi-automatic paintball marker. The Stealth Series offers an exciting new look and appearance that is unmatched in paintball today. The Stingray II Ice continues to be an excellent choice for playing locations which require low velocities such as indoor fields.
The Brass Eagle Stingray II Ice is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Piranha VTL G2: Fast, accurate, and 50 times better then this gun.
Tippmann 98 Custum: powerful and again, much better than this gun.
Avenger: Awful, unreliable, but a little better than this gun
Stingray 2 Ice with 16" Thunder Pig barrel (awesome upgrade) 9oz. tank with butt plate, scope, VL200 hopper.
don't waste your money on upgrades on this gun: if you have your heart set on some, get a new barrel at least
accepts a scope,
balances perfectly w/my setup.
reliable at busting balls, frying o-rings
Cheap plastic that cracks
Trigger pull a mile long and about 2 pounds strong
Ok- to examine the individual parts of the gun, left to right:
Barrel: fitting a straw on this gun is better than leaving this barrel on: causes balls to whizz, spin and likewise misfire, leaving you wondering why you wasted your money.
Main gun body (does not include trigger frame): Plastic, like everything else. Chops balls like nothin ever seen. When 1 does break, u are ruined for the whole game.
Trigger Frame: Hollow and cheap plastic. Trigger pull is single finger and feels like a ton to pull it. I can only manage 1 shot a second, maybe 2 if i'm pumped.
CO2 adaptor: Leaks and/or goes full auto 1/5 times and slowly sucks the air outta the tank through the barrel or into hopper whenever u are not firing unless u have a perfect connection between your tank and the gun. Rather not savor the thought.
I was unfortunate enough to stumble upon this gun at wally-world. Seemed like a good deal--it isn't. Good gun if your dad is the only 1 that can buy u a gun and he is mainly interested in the price. By all means, if this is the case, save your (or his) money. Buy a pump. $50 less and although they are not semi-auto they are somehow better. Pass this one up. You'll be happy you did.
Tippmann 98c, A5, Spyder Victor 2, Xtra, Shutter, Compact, - All much better.
Tippman 98c, 12 inch bigshot, 20oz a/s C02
Talon with new mainspring.
a spyder victor
can use co2 cartridges
uncomfortable, long trigger pull, unreliable, total rip off
This gun is possibly the worst purchase in all of paintball. The body is made of cheap plastic that is sure not to last. It feels like the tension just from firing will rip the body apart. The trigger pull is insanely long and heavy, good luck getting more than 3 bps on it. Accuracy is terrible with the stock barrel, which is only a few inches long. Anybody who honestly thinks the stringray 2 is accurate clearly doesnt understand what real accuracy is or has never shot a decent gun.
People will tell you that the stringray is a good beginner gun because of price, that is a dirty lie. There are spyders that cost less and are better in every conceivable way (not an overstatement), which makes them much better beginner guns.
Don't buy it, there is no good reason unless you have some kind of cheap brass eagle gun fettish. Stingrays are dispicably poor quality and performance, and an overall disgrace to paintball.
1 out of 10

on its way, tippy a5, e-grip, double trigger, flatline barrel
if you dont get the hint to buy a new gun, you can use the 2 penny trick where you add velocity by putting 2 pennies behind the spring of your cock in the gun. or the 12" barrel.
hmm if you are a newb, great wannabe sniper gun. other then that, it sux
brass eagle, plastic
look it rules over the blade, but that is about it, noobs get this if you dont know if you like the sport yet. it shoots more accurate then most rentals and still is cheap. the way the co2 hooks up makes it feel like a rifel, you can get the 12 inch barrel and make it really seem like a cheap sniper. other then that dont get it. ohh also DONT USE BRASS EAGLE PAINTBALLS. view loader is ok, but not the best. go for teamcolors by 32*.
noobs only. better then most rentals. get it for woods ball, definitally not speedball
Lapco Bigshot 12"
BE and Scott 9oz's
A new gun?
a little heavy on CO2
Ok, it was my first gun. It works pretty well until the plastic starts to crack. when playing against other BE guns the accuracy is great, but against others its bad.... If it wasn't plastic I would have kept it over my BE avenger.... The Avenger uses CO2 as fast and has less accuracy (with a long barrel, go figure).I would have to say this is one of the best BE guns out there, but personally, find a good used Tippmann 98 or something that you can upgrade more and will last you longer.
One of the best BE guns out there (better than an Avenger except for the plastic). But if you really want to play, try to find something like a used Tippmann 98 so that you can upgrade....
eradicator ( i used my cousins once) does not compete with this gun
enigma btl better than this gun but it also cost more
a Kingman spyder e99 stock with a 16 in 32* nyte stikk barrel and a 12 volt hopper with x-board, 20 ounce co2 tank and smart parts on/off valve
umm a barrel and believe it or not they do make a barrel a 12 in and a 16 in get one
also get a bottom line if u can
durable,does not chop a lot of balls,simple design
short barrel,heavy tripper pull,inaccurate,loud,plastic
do not listen to other people, they just hate brass eagle and they compare this stingray to an autococker. i don't know why this isn't meant to compete with auto cockers. this is actually a very good gun, in my opinion the best brass eagle makes. it has lasted me 2 years, but for the last year i let my friends use it cause i have the spyder e99 and enigma. it hasn;t broke yet, it does not break too many paintballs, and when it does break one u can fire a couple times and it is fixed.if u plan on using this gun with more than like 4 people playing than get a tank unless u want to change co2 grams every 20 shots. has a minor blowback problem the bolt isn;t timed right and causes paintballs in ur hopper to bust. it will compete with most semi's but tripper pull is slow and long, its plastic(not good). u have to watch u don't lose the pins holding the barrel in.
get gun for beginers, very simple, a beginer can feild strip it and put it back together, if a beginer feild striped a spyder that has about 100 peice it can get complicated. it introduces players into the game, much better gun than eradicator. does not chop a lot of paint
-It shoots paintballs
-I have never seen a ball explode in mid-air
-Hard to dissasemble
-Can fire at random times
-Looks and feels cheap
I am glad I never bought this gun, my friend did.
I remember one time I was helping him clean it and it took 30 minutes, a screwdriver, and a hammer to just open up the case. We had just gone shooting and when we looked inside I told him "maybe we should just put the cover back on." Every piece was covered in paint from the 50 out of 200 balls that broke.
It does look space age, so if you like that you will like this gun a little more.
We set up a target and fired at it from about 16 feet away, and hit it 2 times. And don't get the set, the mask is crap and won't fit you.
And then their is the co2. It uses 12 fram things that took us an hour to figure how to work. Their was nothing in the instruction booklet useful so we had to go online and ask someone how to use it.
Avoid this gun at all costs, your friend could sell it to you for 10 bucks and he would be ripping you off. I really really really don't like Brass Eagle products, they are cheap and most of the time are just not functional. I guess they have good customer service or something to keep them alive.
Commando 2 - Ok gun, dont use it in winter!
Spyder TL Plus - great gun for beginners who want to improve their skill, this is my primary gun
Brass Eagle Stingray - i always have this with me at a war, is the most reliable backup gun ever
Tippman 98 - nothing bad about this one, but i sold it too a friend.
Spyder TL Plus - ok when you first get it, but i put a lot of upgrades in mine including: a 16 inch sniper barrel made by Tru flight, a scope (makes it a lot more accurate), a new cyclone bolt, and a motorized hopper.
Stingray II ice - I also upgraded this one too. The LAPCO barrel adapter threaded for a Spyder barrel along with a Tru Flight barrel for a spyder will put a big shot into a Stingray. Also i changed the color from clear to blue with a new body kit.
-The LAPCO barrel adapter
-Tru Flight barrel for a spyder
-Blue body kit, not recomended but makes it look a whole lot cooler
-And last, a upgrades kit
It is very accurate with a new barrel (the stock one sucks!)
In winter, the air leaks
Have had a few ball breaks but nothing tragic
This is a very great gun and i would recomed that if you have one and want to get rid of it, dont! look around on the internet for a little bit to find the neccessary upgrades. When you find then and try them out you will think, "How could i have ever sold this gun?"
I think that with the right upgrades this gun will do wonders when you play Rec Ball. People always say that this gun sucks, or that they cant find any upgrades for it, well they probly havent gone to www.g3pb.com and looked at all the things that u can to to make your stingray the coolest marker youve ever had.
This gun is only good it you can find a longer barrel. Somehow, my genesis barrel jams right in perfect, so i didnt mind using my stingray once in a while. I had fun with mine cuz i was a noob, but i left it behind as a grew to a better gun. It is a good gun to start out with, doesnt chop too many balls.
I would not buy this product, but i got it for a gift. If you have one, give it to your little brother to use, then shoot his butt. Good for an 8 year old.
Wow. I bought this marker kit for my girlfriend to use whenever we go out, as it seemed like a good deal as opposed to paying her rental fees every time. Though it does the job, and I found the accuracy to be pretty decent, it has a serious problem when it comes to chopping balls, and even getting balls jammed in the crap-tacular barrel it comes with (which, by the way, to my knowledge is impossible to upgrade). It does lob balls, as others have said, every once in a while, and the minute you fire a round, EVERYONE will know where you are, as this is easily the loudest marker I've ever heard. And just a note: The mask that comes with the kit (BE Deluxe Mask) is about as much protection as playing with a plastic bag over your head.
If you're new to the game and on a tight budget, go for it. But keep in mind that you'll need to buy a whole new marker if you want to play some serious games.
Tippmann 98 custom, 32 degrees grip, hyper star bolt. more to follow :)
none you cant find any
too many others
The very first time i played i used this gun. Every thing was goin great then my gun just froze up! You couldnt even pull the trigger. meanwhile attempting to fix it, my friend shot me in the head twice with his pro/carbine. :( I dont know why it locked up either. It was about 68* out and i got it only 2 weeks before. So i got a tippmann 98 custom and i have been VERY satisfied since. Tippmann makes great guns :)
only get this if you want to fool aroundm but be prepared if it breaks
