Alright i just got this gun yesterday so i dont know a whole lot about it yet. I was looking for a new paintball gun after my Rex R2 kept breaking. I was looking at maybe getting a MR1 or a SP1 because i heard they were quite durable. Now i knew that tippmanns were the most durable and reliable guns i just wasent sure about there overall performance.†So when i went to JT's Military Surplus Store yesterday in Ottawa Ontario, i asked them about the MR1 and Sp1. They said those were good guns but they would recommened the 98 custom. With a bit of hesitation i decided what the heck and purchased it. I tested it yesterday and shot about 500 paintballs out of it and only one chopped. That was probably because i was using some old zap paint. I will list the rating of the different categories of the 98 custom platinum series with ACT.Accuracy: 6/10 Well i was actually extremely suprised about the accuracy because that the stock barrel is only 8 inches. Overall is not terrible but not good either.ROF: 7/10 The rate of fire is actually not bad, i put about 50 paitnballs in the hopper and fired them as fast as i could and they all fired equally as hard and as accurate and not one chop.Rail: 9/10 The rail on this gun is extremely good because the hopper is off to the side so the sights actually really improve the markers aim. To improve the aim even† more i would recommend a longer barrel and maybe an optic such as a red dot site or a scope.Weight:8/10 The weight of this gun is extremely good, the width of the gun is kind of long but that doesent really affect anything. Again the weight would be lighter i just have a 20 oz tank on it.I will update this review as i upgrade my tippmann please say if this review was helpful.††††††
I would recommened this gun to anyone who wants a good reliable paintball gun that is really customisable well this is the gun for you. I would rate it a 10 if i had the upgrades but fo now it is a 9 with all stock parts.
