modified venturi bolt (e-mail me to find out how)
stainless steel all american 14 inch
lazy z drop forward
kinked hose : )
new barrel, any will do the stuck barrel is loud as hell and sucks balls pretty much
maybe a drop forward if you like, but don't be like a geek and get a ten inch drop, the pros only use 2-4 inch drops
excellent rate of fire (read conclusion for details)
good distance even when low on air compared to a spyder shutter with same barrel
more but too lazy to type
they now have bolt upgrades and new grip frames for sale
some parts break, they are replaced for free call 32 degrees and ask
ok, i used to think the trigger was very heavy, and indeed it was, until halfway through the games i played today that is, it went from shooting about 4 shots a second to about 7!
i seriously kid you not, i used to have a heavier trigger pull than a t98, but today i guess i finally broke it in because with one finger i was pulling off 7rps. no joke. the radarchronograph does not lie. and when i fanned it i got off spurts of 9 shots per second. damn i love this gun now.
spyder tl+, tricked out raptor, tricked out autococker, model 98 w/flatline, enigma exl, umm many other guns.
Rebel deluxe, big daddy 16", new spyder trigger frame, 6 stage sub zero core x chamber, drop forward craddle gage with valve, micro line, and a new connecting pin a custom one from ace a stainless steel pin that fits right in the bolt. if you dont change the pin it will break and mess up your gun badly.
all that i have on it.
it alright until you put a whole bunch of things on it like i did then its a great gun.
the connection pin between the bolt and striker will break after some use. do what i did it will fix the prob. need new barrel and bolt and whatever you can afford.
i love my gun now that i have everything i want on it. all it really needs it a new barrel and a new pin.
pmi trracer- very few upgrades
rebel deluxe- stock, not worth upgrading
not worth upgrading
-good for the cost i got mine for $120
-stock barrel is ok, but loud
-accurate for a pretty long way
-real light trigger pull
-a little front heavy but with a 20 oz. on the back it balances out
-stock it is pretty good
-make sure to put the barrel on real tight or else it comes unscrewed when u shoot it (this might just be my gun though)
-the steel braided hose started leaking after about a month or two
-the hose it stuck on there real good, took a while to get off
-the expansion chamber doesn't do too much
-my whole trigger frame fell off twice, lost two sets of screws that hold the frame on
-this gun shreds a tank o-ring every time I use it, sometimes it will just start leaking in a game ( this really sucks) and I will have to put a new one on, I don't really mind because they cost almost nothing, but the game either gets stopped or I have to quit the round
-not good for woodsball, the barrel and gun are shiny and give away ur position really easily (the other team can see the gun and barrel for a few hundred feet when the sun hits it)
Its a decent gun, but go with a spyder or other good gun

The only thing this marker really needs is a new barrel (i recommend a SP All American or an Armson Stealth), and if you plan on really upgrading, A NEW TRIGGER FRAME (Such as a Bob Long or WGP Hinge)! If you play speedball a lot, make sure that the barrel is only 12", and that you get a good dropforward.
~Comfortable to hold with a dropforward
~Fairly Accurate (more so with a new barrel)
~Not a gas hog (the one I was testing had a different X-Chamber than the one in the pic above, it looked like an ACI Sub-Zero, but it wasn't)
~Easy to clean (after a game, not during)
~Chops balls sometimes if you fire fast, which is hard to do because of the...
~HEAVY TRIGGER! I couldn't get more than 5 BPS off of this thing! This is why I recommend a new trigger frame, but it doesn't matter unless you play speedball or want to impress your friends.
~The one I was testing had a really tight field strip pin, and it didn't come unlodged without some "help" from a screwdriver.
~I really hate the grips! I realize that 32* didn't want the 'gun to look like a Spyder in it's entirety, but jeesh, they could have at sacrificed feel somewhere where it didn't really matter! I mean, you hold the grip 100 percent of the time when playing paintball, and it just kinda sucks that you can't put some Stickies or something on it...no biggie, though.
~I don't respect the company because they copy other company's products (ex. DYE Boomy, WDP Infinity barrels, etc. etc. etc.), but that's just my opinion.
Very solidly built product, but I don't recommend it as a first 'gun. Go for a Pirahna or Tippmann 98 Custom (NO SPYDERS!). Well, I take that back. Go for it, IF and only if you can find a good price on it. But a Model 98 Custom is faster firing, more reliable, and better performing in general straight out of the box, and NEVER chops balls unless in extreme conditions. Also, if you get a pirahna, I would recommend buying a well-kept used one from a few years back, because they are much more reliable and durable, not as cheap as some are getting to be nowadays.
Whatever you do, make sure that your beginning package looks like this:
'Gun of your choice
9, 12, 16, or 20 oz tank, depending on how much you shoot
GOOD MASK! I CAN'T STRESS THIS ENOUGH! Go with a thermal JT, for your own sake!
VL200 Hopper, no need for a Revvy unless you have a 'gun like my 'Mag or 98 Custom with a fast trigger or trigger job.
Squeegee! GET ONE!
black rebel deluxe
20 and 9 oz tanks
smart parts stainless steel all american two piece fourteen inch rifled barrel
lazy z drop forward
V FORCE SHIELD
proud to say this is better than all stock spiders and piranhas (with the exception of electric ones JUST because they shoot faster, but they're not as accurate as this puppy)
barrel and drop, nitro later

except the gas hog thing, for the 20 oz tank i really did only get 900 shots but i just remembered that the first time i put the tank on, i didn't have the low pressure chamber on and i leaked alot of air, also when you tank the tank off you loose alot of air and i took mine off about 5 or 6 times.
so in reality you might get more shots per fill, and 400-500 shots is not bad for a 9 oz. especially in cool weather.
see post below.
sorry about the double posting, but this was an important point about the gas hog thing.
