The Model 2040 Avenger semi-automatic paintball marker from Brass Eagle features a lightweight, aero-space grade aluminum alloy receiver. It has a custom grip and a double finger trigger that allows to fire up to 10 shots per second.
The Brass Eagle Avenger is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

EVERYTHING SUCKS ON THIS GUN!! It broke everytime i had it!
I have had 12 new types of these guns and they broke each tiime i get one its not just me either this gun has never worked for me exsept right when i first get it. the co2 valve is either broke or the gun looses skrews and falls apart or anything else you could emagind has happend to this gun. brass eagle is one of the worst brands i have ever used m first brand was a cheap blade when i was just shooting at a wall and that broke within a day. the only good gun i had of brass eagle was a saber and even that had problems but i got that fixed.
NEVER BUY THIS GUN THE PRICE IS NOT A DEAL ATALL DONT WASTE YOUR TIME UNLESS YOU WANT TO THROW AWAY 120 BUCKS FOR LESS THEN 10MINUTS OF SHOOTING!!!!!
It is good as is bu if you are a upgrade junkie then you might want to get longer barrel and remote air. Do not put 20oz tank on it since it becomes very heavy to carry arround.
Cheap, accurate(stock), light weight, no chopping
None that I am avare of.
I used this gun for 1 year and only 1 time I had to replace O-ring on the tank. I acctually used this gun in couple of the Semi-pro games, and results were excelent. On the field in Santa Paula (CA) called reality paintball the gun proved to be 95% of the time accurate on up to 50 meters(about 160 feet). I was competeing against the guys with armotechs, angels fully automatics, and snipers. In one case I was stuck in the bunker with guy that had a tipman, and he was chopping balls like crazy. During the whole day of playing I did not chop 1 single ball, but off course I also used HI-end balls too, so I am sure that all those people that chop balls either use cheep balls or their barrel might be a bit loose(check it out). Also if you are going into the fight then make sure that you have an extra air tank if you are using 9oz and a few pods filled with the balls.
For the price this gun is the bes of the best. But remember in order to love it YOU MUST USE HI-END PAINTBALLS (about $65.00 for a full case)
loud it has kno stealth ability after you fire it inacurecy
this gun to me is a great gun aside from the weaknesses i posted, you can get good upgrades for it, its more for a speed ball setting becouse of the inacurecy and loudness. i havent had a prob with the balls breaking in the barrel but thats becouse i dont buy cheap wal mart paint and i kno how to take care of my gun, so with upgrades tis is prob a great intermediat gun. not to hard to take care of and its easy to get parts
buy this gun first you got some peaple goin out there buyin a5's and guns they dont kno how to take care of or use this is an easy gun to work with as long as you kno how to take care of it
it chops, breacks down, leacks CO2, inacurate, poorly made, poorly designed... the list goes on
When i first got this gun, i thought it was the best gun ever, but what did i know, i was a noob. My bro and I got 2 avengers at the same time, the first time he took his gun to the paintball arena, it broke, so he got a tippman a-5. We then went up into the woods with some other people to try out wood ball. I amde the mistake of not useing paint that was not more expencive than the gun itself. About 2 out of ten shots would not chop, but there was soo much sh!t in the barrel, that the ball would just roll out. So, unless you want to buy marbalizers, this gun will chop like mad. I went through a whole day of not getting ne kills, because my gun was covered in smelly brass eagle paint. It sucked, all i could do was be a decoy, but then people started to notice that only yellow sh!t was comming out of my barrel, and they stopped shooting at me, so all i could do was wander around waiting for all my teamates to die... The one good thing is is that it hasnt broken...yet. Throughout my whole short paintballing carrer, i have seen 2 breack out of the 3 ive seen used.
I would not recomend this gun to any one. It is a wast of money. The reason i would not give this a 1 out of ten, is that it hasnt broken down yet. I expect it will andy day now. I let my gunless friends use it.... i will never use it again!
VL Trident,Spyder Xtra and imagine (both way better).
VL Prodigy,16 inch barrel,VL Evolution II hopper
A new barrel might help...
Man,tons,maybe the cheap BE plastic insides and no feild strip pin
This is a BE marker whitch right off the bat puts it down,this marker is not high quality period,it is CHEAP price wise and the bad way the plastic internals total screw it up.I had this gun for when i had just started and now have a VL Prodigy with upgrades and you cant even begian to compare these markers.I suppose the Avenger gets the job done but other than that....dont waste your money.
This marker is ok for a nooooooobie and good for starters or maybe people who wanna get people into the sport for the first time.

Spyder Xtra with VL200 and 20 oz CO2 with SP Progressive 14" barrel
-ESP 3.0 Frame
-Shocktech Supafly Bolt
-VL Revvy with x or HALO TSA
-Flame Drop Forward
-New Spring Kit
-New Reciever and LPC
-Freak Progressive barrel (18")
or an Angel (Speed or A4) or Dynasty Shocker (or reg shocker)
Maybe a barrel and a trigger job, if u can get a better bolt, do so. Along with an Expansion Chamber and gas through grip and drop forward
Is actually built well and shoots paint somewhat straight. is good for a noob.
Not tourney capable. shoots WAY TOO HARD. Expect something to go wrong. Too Heavy.
A good gun to start out with if you want to try out paintball (should get a spyder if you can. I had one (Avenger), but didnt like it, too heavy (I had one, but didnt like it, it was too heavy, and was not worth the huindred bucks i paid for it) so i went and got an aggressor xt (another Story).
*THIS IS NOT A TOURNEY OR WOODS BALL MARKER!* -ONLY FOR REC. PLAYERS!- (newbs only)
If you can not find a spyder or pirahna, get this at your own risk. look very hard first. Only get this as a last resort, if u wanna play tourneys, look at an e-spirit to add a botom line and gas through grip to or a spyder xtra if u dont wanna spend 300+ bucks for a gun.

A very nice gun for the price, and is very reliable for me. Shoots good for beginner up to intermediate (with upgrades). Looks good but bad for Forest Ball, nothing some electrical tape can't fix. And for all you out there that bash BE your nuts. The Avenger i got shoot great. When I shoot it i breack one out of every 100 and all i have to do to shoot accurate again is to fire 3 more balls again and the guns is shooting striaght again (don't recomend doing that). I haven't broken an ring yet after 10 or 12 games with it and it dosen't leak at all.
All you that complaned about the avenger have some thing wrong with either your gun or you or i got lucky but far as I know it is a very good buy.
don't upgrade jsut get another gun, that is if you started with this gun just play for a while until you get used to the game and then get a better gun like spyder or tippmann
fails to work sometimes and is just cheaply made
i only shot this gun once, but for some reason it just stopped shooting paintballs when i used it. the balls would just pop out the gun. we all the thought the tank was empty and took it off put on a new one, and guess what nope it just screwed up in the gun.
conclusion is i wouldn't buy it, get a spyder or something more up there.
I'm on my second avenger, the first one i didn't get to use but once, and broke. The second one broke in combat, one of the bolts broke had to fix it with ducked tape. The gun doesn't shoot strate and 40% of th balls brake in the barrel.
My conclusion is that this Gun really really sucks brass eagle should go bankrupt for the crap that they sell. DO NOT BUY THIS MARKER!!!!!!!
