98 Custom Act Paintball Gun

Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
I have the exact same gun. Looking at the gun, barrel facing left. You’ll see the word Tippmann. Just below and slightly right of the end of that word you will see a allen head screw. Using and allen wrench turn that screw. If you wish to raise the velocity, tighten the screw. If you wish to slow the balls down, loosen the screw (bring it out, but not too far.) The faster the paint balls go though, they have a tendency to burst (but not usually) or the big thing with mine, is they get more back spin, and they travel UP, making them also go further. If they go to slow, they are pretty inaccurate. I find my optimum performance, when the allen screw is flush with the plastic on the outside of the weapon. Hope this helps!\\Seth\\

Tippmann 98 Custom E Trigger system (allows full auto 15 Balls per second fire)
so what this does or what the idea behind this kit is typically your 98 custom is going to operate at roughly 750 to 850 psi.
Tippmann 98 Custom Platinum Series Paintball Marker Gun Ultra Basic, Semi-Auto.
The muzzle velocity of paintball markers is approximately 90 m/s (300 ft/s); most paintball fields restrict speed to 280–300 ft/s, and small indoor fields may further restrict it down to 250 ft/s. While greater muzzle velocity is possible, it has been ruled unsafe for use on most commercial paintball fields.
Well, its about 330 km/h (205 mph) or a shade slower than the track record holding Bugatti Veyron at 408km/h. But you have to remember, paintballs are round and on the whole, not the most perfect aerodynamic shape. So, that speed is at the very tip of the muzzle of the gun.
In most cases, paintball guns use compressed air tanks with high pressure ratings, generally ranging from 3000 psi up to 5000 psi. The paintball guns balance the pressure using a regulator connected to the piping to achieve the ideal output.
A fully charged CO2 cylinder at 87.9 oF will have an internal pressure of approximately 1100 psi.
As a true fully automatic pistol the G18 is one of the most specialized GLOCK pistols. With an external fire selector at the rear of the slide you can switch from semi-automatic to full-automatic firing mode.
The select-fire GLOCK pistol models were introduced for the military and police market. Switch from semi-automatic to full-automatic firing mode with the fire selector. Three safeties disengage sequentially as the trigger is pulled and automatically reengage when the trigger is released.

Hello, I have an old Tippman A5 (about 5-6 years
ANSWER : You will have to buy a different barrel for the A5, I would suggest ansgear.com, rockstartactical.com, or ebay. Make sure that you get the right threads along with an apex capeable front. I would suggest the sly carbon fibur barrels, or get a autococker barrel and a lapco adapter for your A5. Hope this helps if you have any questions just let me know.

98 Custom Act Paintball Gun: i have just brought a 98 tippmann custom and it ha…
ANSWER : Basically speaking, air is air. Now it’s the pressure that’s the concern. co2 bottles use a regular valve that has a pin in it and opens to allow the gas through. High Pressure Air – HPA is the same concept but since the pressure with co2 is built up by expanding gas, HPA has to do it with pressure only. So the tank is pressurized a LOT higher than co2, but there’s a regulator on the tank valve to bring the working pressure into the marker to the proper level.So yes, you can use “air”, but you need to make sure it has the right output for your marker. (i.e. not a low pressure HPA valve.). You’ll have the same problem though, getting someone to fill the bottle. Check with your local airsmith and paintball fields and stores. If they have co2 they would have HPA, but some do only deal with HPA since it’s “easier” in some cases. You may have to check around. Sometimes hardware stores have a small section in back, or you can check with the paintball places around to see if anyone in your area is equipped. Some teams have their own tanks, especially if there’s not a place to get fills locally. There’s also online communities like Brigade and various paintball sites where you can check around for other players. Someone may have a co2 fill tank, a scuba tank for HPA, or a group that gets tanks together to make a run and get them filled somewhere.Good luck!

Play hard, play safe, play with honor!

Cannot adjust velocity
ANSWER : Please see below page 8 for picture of what I am talking about.

On page 8 in the middle left side is a picture of the internal vale parts.

When you pull the valve out on the back side is a little o ring that can be taken out using an o ring pick. Make sure to watch the way the parts come out and look for any rust, also broken o rings if the valve is stuck open this will allow the maximum of air to pass. Most of time is this part that is messed up. You can by the valve in one unit this is the best option.

But the first thing is to check the valve and all the parts. Lube it up and re install it.

Most I’ve ever spent on a scale recommended by weight watchers and I’m so dissapointed.

How to set velocity on tippnan 98 custom – Tippmann 98 Custom Act Paintball Gun
ANSWER : There is a velocity adjuster on the left side of the body, just below and to the right of the “N” in “TIPPMANN.”

In order to adjust the velocity you need to be in a place where it is safe and legal to fire your marker (paintball field, with all bystanders protected by netting or paintball goggles.) You will need a chronograph and a 3/16-inch hex wrench.

The adjuster is a screw that blocks the gas flow from the valve to the bolt. If you screw it in (clockwise) it blocks more of the gas, so your velocity goes down. If you screw it out (anti-clockwise) it blocks less gas, so the velocity goes up.

Just take a shot over the chronograph to check your velocity, adjust and check again until you get it where you want it. Most paintball fields limit velocity to 285 feet per second. Never go above 300 feet per second, as velocities above that are unsafe (beyond paintball goggle ratings and can cause damage and infection on skin due to the heavy impact.)

It is important to test and adjust the velocity before each day of play, and even multiple times during the day as weather changes, because it is affected by temperature.

I attempted to put a car stock on my Tippmann 98 custom and took apart the gun but the stock didnt fit, now when i put it back together and shot it with my tank connected the gun wont stay cocked and little CO2 is coming out with each shot the sound is very low as opposed to my other Tipmann 98 custom where its loud and stays cocked. What do i do?
ANSWER : Check the O rings on the big metal striker, make sure that you have the spring on the back (where the stock would have went) in the right hole on the back plate. Make sure that your velocity is set to a reasonable level.
