Tippmann 98 Custom/Model
Tippmann Custom Pro
Spyder Victor II, 12" J&J Ceramic, Bandit Bolt, IPI 3.0 Frame, ViewLoader 12 v.
Electronic trigger, barrel, hopper, BOLT!!!
Sturdy design, Good looking, Easily upgradeable...
Loud, Bolt scratches itself and the inside of the gun.
This is a definite beginners gun. But don't count it out just yet. With upgrades it can hang w/ the guns in the $200 range, or greater. I'm personally going to sell mine for either an Ion, or Custom Pro E. anyway, first, a barrel, i've found a J&J to be adequate. For people looking to upgrade not sell, you can buy a reg, since it already has an expansion chamber. Your also gonna need a bolt soon because the stock can really hurt your gun, by scratching it up on the inside, The one's at BANDITPAINTBALL.COM are like delrin (meaning they are self lubricating), but don't absorb any moisture.
Then get an electric frame and an electric hopper and then your ready to rip!!!
All in all this is a pretty good gun. And even a steal for it's upgradeability. you need to get this gun its quality, just watch out for that stock bolt, it'll eat your gun up....literally!!! Fix that and your fine.

A new bolt isn't needed. Wear and tear on the bolt doesn't cause any loss in performance. All that is needed is removal of the Venturi, and a little polishing. This makes the gun slightly more efficient on gas, and easier on the balls, causing less chops. Essentially,all paintball bolts are the same.
