So I recently came across this marker for $2.50 and was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about it, what year it is from, what company made it etc. The marker name is "Stingray". Thanks in advance. :)

Well, it was made by brass eagle, .68 cal. I don't think they are exactly new, maybe '96 area-ish. Some have bottom lines, while others (like that one apparently) do not.

For more detailed info/cleaning instructions/ etc.

I had one in the late 90's, paid about $50 for it i think, it did its job, but now its a novelty item, so take good care of it!

Brass Eagle Stingray.


The model I was an Illustrator valve design and had a fixed barrel.

The model II was a Montneel valve design and had a removable barrel.

Well considering it did have a removable barrel, I believe that makes it a Stringray II if that is good or bad. :P I cleaned up the marker which is the first time its been cleaned in nearly 20 years, there were still four paintballs stuck in the barrel >_<. I don't have any CO2 cartridges to test it out but it seems to fire alright but it is incredibly difficult to cock, so I'm going to swap the spring out and see if that is the issue.

That's not a bad marker. For $2.50 (Are you SERIOUS???) it's an amazing marker.
That was one of the last Brass Eagle Markers worth using. I have it's Pump Cousin the Tigershark, but my friend has one of these. He's pretty lethal with it.

If you want to have some fun (and know what you're doing), throw on some jeans, a woodland camo jacket, and go play. Most everyone thinks you're some first timer.
Then you can show them up :P

Yeah for $2.50 I couldn't pass it up, even with the poor shape I bought it in. None of the internals were rusted or anything but the marker hadn't been lubricated, or cleaned in over a decade. I can't wait to use this as I've always wanted to try playing with 12 grams, and a stick feed (I have a homemade one for my Sniper II) but I cannot use a 12 gram changer with my Sniper II as I would have to buy a valve kit for it which I don't want to do as I don't get out enough, unfortunately, to justify spending that much on an upgrade.

Just toss on a 9 or 12 oz co2 tank. It simply is not efficient enough to justify using a 12gr.

Heavy trigger pull. Inconsistant accuracy due to the floting barrel design.
But it offers a near indestructable design and pretty much works through just about any type of abuse.

These were the first guns both of my children used during their first times playing the sport and they are perfect for kids.

That would be the Stingray II. I know they were a 90's era marker. I got one in a player starter pack from Wal-mart for around $100 if I remember right. It was a great introduction marker for me. It became my loaner when I got a PMI Piranha about 6 or 7 months later. Now it is sitting in my project bin since it was becoming too much of a chore to keep running. If yours works and you think you can keep it working for a long time let me know. I have a J&J ceramic barrel for it I might be willing to part with.

The marker is incredibly hard to cock, it is possible but requires an incredible amount of force that in my case cannot usually be done by hand. I normally have to unscrew the 12 gram changer and pull the cocking pin with that in order to get enough force to cock the marker. Upon inspection it appears that the culprit behind this is the hammer spring, it is stiff and slightly bent. I cannot seem to find a replacement spring made specifically for the Stingray II, so will any other springs for any other markers work?

The internals of the marker are clean, I cleaned and lubed them myself. I don't have a chronograph at my house, so I couldn't tell you but the velocity screw was not very far down when I fired it today. I bought some 12 Grams, today to actually gas and fire the marker, and the results were not pretty, I got about five shots off before the thing refused to fire or cock again, and it seemed like there was still a bit of CO2 in the cartridge when I unscrewed it from the bucket changer that came with my marker. It was cold outside but not five shots from a 12 Gram cold, I suspect I have a leaky o-ring somewhere in the marker. I submerged it in water gassed up and cocked but did not fire it and bubbles were coming from the back/bottom of the bucket changer (the open part where they butt end, not the end that gets punctured, of the cartridge is). So my next question is, is there supposed to be a o-ring near where the cartridge gets punctured? Like is the neck of the cartridge supposed to be sitting in an o-ring?

I'm guessing my problem here is a combination of the spring, and the leak I believe I have. The marker was caked in old paint from the 90's when I bought it and the spring had been left uncocked. It sat in a humid and damp area for a good few years and then a cold and dry area up until I bought it. The marker had been left uncocked when purchased and all the o-rings are stock o-rings. The spring, feels overly stiff and is bent pretty good.

EDIT:

I was looking at purchasing this O-ring kit (yeah I know it isn't for my marker but it looks like it should contain o-rings that will fit any o-rings that need to be replaced in my marker).

And this Spring Kit(Not sure if this will work, does anyone know if BT4/98C springs will work with a Stingray?
