Review: I used this gun a few times to see how I liked it, because everyone was talking about it saying how much it rocked, so I thought why not use my freinds, and see how it does. So I go out there, super hyped to try out this awesome gun, and got TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY WASTED. I would shoot, and it would chop. So I take another one, and it chops, and it did that until I was spraying nothing but peices of shell and paint. So I go out and squeegee it, feild strip it and clean out all the paint. so Im ready the next round, and go. I start firing, and what happens? It chops. And what paintballs were coming out I had to lob over to them. So finally I get 5 feet away, and pounce on this guy. I fire and it all curves to the side. I couldnt beleive it. He fires at me using his tippman 98 and totally misses. So I go behind some cover and pop back out, and finally hit him. This gun totally disapointed me. I didnt expect it to be a very good speedball gun. it could have been my gun, but even my opponents with tippys werent doing so hot. I dont like to bash name brands (except brass eagle of course) but this gun didnt work for me.
Conclusion: Despite the fact that this gun totally reeked, I got my fair share of people out for how badly it performed, and so thats why its a 3.

Ummm... the 98 doesn't have field strip. And maybe your friend didn't treat this gun all so well. My friend owns a 98 and it is accurate, and it hardly chops.

Dude your friend must treat his gun like crap if it chops iv been playing alot and just about 5 years with this marker and had no problems with it at all.

from what i understand 98s are supposed to be able to take one heck of a beating and keep going if that is so then how badly it gets treated should have no affect on chopping. maybe it chops because of that bent feed neck.

Yeah, I have to agree, the m98 rarely chops on me, but yeah the barrel sucks too. But I also must say this review is uncalled for, I don't know what you did to the gun to make it chop like you claim it did, because it doesn't. Realistically, anybody who scores this gun below a five either has a defective gun, or expects way too much.

Like most guns, once one ball chops, its like soup for the rest of the balls. I dont rightly know why it chopped so badly, I am just telling you what happened. I am not bias at all, and actually like the A-5 and think Tippman is a respected name, but for some reason this gun didnt work for me. Tell you what, I will try a different 98 out, and if it is any better, I will change my review.

Ok look buddy. Tippmanns DONT CHOP. Everybody that I play with (18) people have tippmanns (we have tippmann stock tourneys) I've personally shot over 30 cases through it with not 1 BALL BREAK IN MY ENITIRE TIME I HAD IT!, and ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE HAVE STOCK TIPPMANNS JUST LIKE ME, and they never broke a ball in there tippmanns ever!, and we use wal-mart paint becuase we use so much paint! They might be slow and have a single trigger but they DONT CHOP!
