Rebel02 Electric, PMI drop forward and foregrip, custom stock, extreme rage overdrive hopper, speedline barrel, and 20 ounce pure energy CO2
12 grams can get somewhat expensive
I don't see why everyone keeps bashing Brass Eagle, their stuff isn't really all that bad. The talon was a good gun while I had it. It was cheap easy to maintain and pretty accurate. I shot well over 2000 rounds through this gun and it held up great until I broke the handle off, which was mostly my fault. The first time I shot this gun it was very accurate. I set up a piece of wood about 2'x2' and shot it from about75 feet.(pretty good for a marker with a plastic barrel. And it was very powerful. The only bad thing was that it used a lot of CO2.(It got about 20 good shots off of a 12 gram)
Over all this would be a good begginner gun or someone who wants something cheap
I will give it a 9 because it broke
9 out of 10

How about save money for a real gun ;)
Disposable to help our enviroment.
To many to list.
Ok first off, this is by FAR the WORST GUN I HAVE EVER USED. Althought you're compairing me to Angels and Karnivors and such, I DON'T CARE ! For 30$ its a total waist. YOU CAN GET A USED SPYDER FOR $20 OR A NEW SPYDER VICTOR FOR AROUND $50! Don't waist your money on it, and when I say waist, I mean waist.
Its plastic body helps it break faster, for quicker disposable use.
Its trigger gets stuck
Its safty breaks
Take it appart once, and the shell will crack
Don't take it appart or you can't shoot it because there are 100 balls broken in the gun, so you have to clean it (and you only shot 102 balls..hmm how did that happen?
Its a noob gun..
The Pump rod broke on me (it totaled my gun..)
Although Brass Eagles are "noob friendly guns" that help new commers figure out weahter they want to play paintball or not, they are $30 bux, and for that amount of money, you could spend and extra 20$ and get a Spyder, which has lasted me for about 3 years now. Not ONE PROBLEM.
Worst 30 bux I have ever spent.
I complement Brass Eagle for making such an enviroment friendly gun! The first gun you can through away after useing it ! Heck, they have disposable cameras, why not paintball guns?
Of corse you can get a gun that will last you forever, shoots better, faster, nicer, and more reliable for 20 $ more.
Spyder Pilot ACS (stock)
Viewloader 200 gravity feed hopper
You can't really upgrade it as much as other guns,
but you can hook it up with a constant airflow
-Gets friends into the sport
-No bonus ballin!
-Its fun to use
-Hard to pump
- hogs air
- can double feed
Its a pump marker. Its fun to use and I'd say its pretty accurate.
It taught me how to conserve ammo and play smarter.
Its also made me better at snap shooting.
You can use this just to play around with friends. Its distance is
quite far for a pump.
The bad things about it are that its plastic, it can double feed,
and when its low on air it makes the paintballs fall short of what its being shot at
(runs on 12gram c02 cartridges)
(comes with a 40 round hopper)
For $20 i feel its a reasonable price and was worth it.
I recommend this to anyone who is willing to mess around or take a
chance with this brass eagle product.
It has helped me use my rounds wisely and play more smart.
I rate this a 8 out of 10 because its a fair Brass Eagle product and does good
for a pump.
um BE marauder ( sucks nuts)
BE blade 02 (allright)
tasco red dot
a5a2 air through stock
a simple scope(4x) or a homemade stock and ten rd tubes
Hard to clean barrel
No ball dentent
i got this gun for 20$CAD and figured what the heck. it was kool and sorta classic. i noticed the package was imposable to open:).
Accuracy: from 20 yrds i was able to hit a 12" grouping cosistantly. I was very supprised cosindering i used to own a BE marauder( accuracy was garbage). I was using BE wild streak paint and 3 year old zap paint. For paintballs i recemend using the junkiest paint you can buy. If you break paint, wich doesn't happen often cleaning is a pain and accuracy is deminished a bit
Simplicity: this gun is extremly simple to disasemble and reassemble. Also the internals are few in numbers and seem reletively sturdy. This gun did not impress me when i was using t-balls and they roled out the end of the barrelwhen i tillted it down. If this gun had a ball dentent i would love it more than i already do.
Cocking: this gun has good and bads with the cocking. It has a short cocking distance and isn't to hard. However this is lost by having to pull the pumnp forward :(. Also the anti double pump mechanism is overridable by pullin the trigger slightly. this is good or bad depending on what you want.( multi loade the barrel for shotgun effect , but breaks paint and decreases accuracy somtimes.
over all this gun is pretty good there a re a few things that could make this gun great ( ball dentent!!!!!! and better pumping). The efficientcy isnt great but who cares the're 12 grams anyways. this gun has an excellent price tag and is fun to play around with or even use as a side arm or primary. I love my A-5!!! more
silver indian creek promaster with halo b hopper (z board) ndz feed neck asa drop foward.
You cant upgrade this marker
The thing is horrible. Shoots 1-4 balls at a time. plastic.
This is by far the worst gun ive ever even seen. Trust me, some reviews say its good but it is NOT. This gun is probably the ugliest, biggest, crapiest gun in world history. If you want to get into paintballing get a cheap electronic gun for under $80. Anything will out preform this gun so look around before you buy.
The ONLY good thing about this gun is that it can launch one pretty far. If you played with this gun against anyone, you would get demolished.
The only thing this gun could be used for is scaring deer out of old man jenkins yard. DO NOT BUY THIS GUN EVEN IF ITS $10 OR EVEN $5. I wish i could rate this thing a zero.

talon with red dot
12inch psyder barrel
co2 hopper holster
seeing how the constant air up grade has been discontinued for at least 2 years i would get this thing for pistols. Its a co2 canister with a quick diconect, to pt it in drill a hole in te handle where you want the diconect part to stick out then locktite the screw in part.
new barrel i used my 12 inch from my fenix. alyou need is a 3/4in screw/slip on coupling and about 2 inchs of 3/4in pvc pipe. hammer the 2 inchs of pvc into the coupling. then take a pair of vice grips and screw it into the side that you just hammered the pvc pipe into. then jimmy the side with the threads onto the end of the barrel of the talon.
Kinda fun to mess around with
Accuracy is ok
1st shot takes half of canister
Pump is hard for weak people
I bought this just to mess around with but then i realized it was so fun to shoot. It was only 20 bucks and i think it was a great deal. I thinl the accuracy is realy good especialy if you added a new barrel. I explained how to do it in the upgrades^^^^^^^^^just use an old stock barrel.What isreally fun to try is buy those airsoft paintballs and shoot a bunch of those at a time and it has an awesome shotgun splater effect.performance is great for what it is.
Go out and get this i mean its only 20 bucks can go through hell and back and still work. ive shot rocks grapes and a bunch of other things(out of my first talon).
Spyder xtra VL Quantom electrc hopper 20 oz co2 tank
None it is that bad
I fired it to fast and it broke.
Well don't ever buy this gun it is crappy and my talon is better. I bought mine at Walmart. Spend the money and get something good. Hit it with a hammer and you might get a good ten balls a minute plus the hopper only holds 50 paintballs. I think this is 50 words I don't no why I bought. A waste of thirty dollars.
Don't buy it

this gun is the most amazing thing i have ever seen.
sp ion w/ too many upgrades to list.
none, it comes perfect out of the plastic shrink wrap you buy it in.
Accuracy, Air efficiency
Get shot up when too busy admiring its beauty.
OK so i have this talon and i am sniping out like veryone one i know and then there like this is cheap u shoulld get an ion so i get that and its good nut not really. i threw that ion in the closet and use the talon and waste all the other like no other. i am talking dm6 schocker cocker proto everything nothing compares. GET A TALON AND YOU WILL OWN.
N FOR LIFE
IF you want 2 win get this.
just kiding it sucks don't listen to what i wrote i give it a 0
Inaccurate, chops paint, 12 gram screw hard to open to change out 12 grams.
This is another "brass eagle wonders". I am disappointed in brass eagle because back in the day when everything was pumps, they made great paintball guns that looked nice and were top of the line. I do not know what has happened to brass eagle but they just make bad paintball guns nowadays. This gun chops pretty bad and when your 12 gram goes out, its hard to unscrew the thing to get the 12 gram out to change it. You will be there for a minute just changing your 12 gram and then by that time someone will eliminate you. This gun is inaccurate and doesn't shoot very far ( maybe because the velocity was turned down ). It is good for its price and good for beginners but if your just starting, try something a little better.
Do not buy unless your a beginner. I give it a 4 because it is good for its price but i guess you get what you pay for.
Don't feel its a fun worth upgrading cus its better suited to being a cheap starting gun.
Easy to take apart and reassemble
Inconsistent air use
Alright so I got this gone from Walmart for $30 which was nice because I was poor and the guy sI play with didnt have a marker for me that weekend for our pump game. It worked a lot better then I expected when I first used it and I shot about 100 paintballs through it before it started having some problems. These occured when the first ball chopped. after that it started having the inconsistencies stated in weaknesses but this wasnt a totally bad thing because there was a point where I got over 30 shots out of one CO2 cartridge but that was just one it varied between cartridge more then I wanted. velocity wise it was inconsitant which was due to the fact that paint got all the way to the back of the inside of the marker. This is where it becomes a good beginner gun because I had never takne a marker apart before (this was my 5th week playing) and I was able to take everything out and get it back together very easily in little time.
Overall it gets a 7 because it does what it is supposed to, it is cheap and easy to understand making it a great gun for a poor person or a beginner but it loses points because of what i stated in my review.
