canada in the mid 1980s(86-7 i think). they moved to US in the 90s(94-3 i think). not sure on everything exactly.

In PBM it says daisy baught BE out in 1995. So that'd be my guess to when it become the American co.

cool thanks. my stingray2 said its made in canada and i was perplexed. i thought the old ones were american.
i also thought brass eagle was a division of daisy. when i first heard of them way back when(92 or 93) everyone said they were made by daisy and they sucked because they break. so i thought they were poorly constructed like daisy airguns. i always used crosman airguns. when i found out bejamin sheridan was a part of crosman i like sheridans even more. they made all my bb and pellet guns and pgp.
well i was givin a broken stingray2 about 4 months ago and after i fixed it i started liking it. the design is strong, simple and cheap. amazed i found the old brass eagle guns were good. and brass eagle wasnt always owned by daisy. i started liking them. i wish i woulda got the old models when i could. now there hard to find.
funny how i used to hate brass eagle and now i really like them.

i hear a lot of "haters" that actually tur out to like them after giveing them a chance,i have one kid on my team who hated BE because his link pin in his raptor broke and he screwed it up even worse takeing it apart and not knowing what hes doin,but my brother in law had a RM and he loved that,now the rm is mine and i am about to send it out in jan. for some work and stuff to it and hes just drooling waiing for it to get back to me,i'd love tog et my hands on some of the older BE guns myself,maybe in the future though

my hatred was based on ignorance as is often the case with hatred.
funny how some people i talk to when hearing i have and use a stingray2 say there sorry or some derogatory remark. they see my carbine and its different. it shouldnt be.
