The history actually starts with BE's first attempt at a semi-auto, the Eagle.

VintageRex.com | - The Official Online Paintball Museum

It would have been one of the very first Semi-auto's, if the darn thing had worked right. Very picky about temperature, and had an overly complicated closed bolt blowback system. Of the 100 made nearly all were recalled.

So, when BE made a second attempt at a semi-auto with the Golden Eagle they pulled out all the stops and over built the sucker as much as they could.
