Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month7 of 8 people found this review helpful.

4 years
Products Used:
stock hammer which is way heavier
Marker Setup: Tippmann M98C with several aftermarket barrels(Lapco and JJ), Dark Horizon Lite Hammer and Dye Sticky grips with 16oz stubby CO2
Strengths: reduces the recoil alot-good customer service-moneyback guaranty
Weaknesses: none
Review: The Dark Horizon Titanium Hammer is a great upgrade for the Tippmann Model 98C.
It weighs way less than the stock hammer so when you go to shoot your marker it has alot less kick. If I had to put a number on it I would say my recoil was reduced by at least 80% which is amazing. Now I can rapid fire and my marker stays right on target.
Even with the reduced weight of the hammer by adjusting the velocity screw my marker is still able to shoot over 280fps. No other modification was necesary to get these great results.
Conclusion: This is an upgrade that you can install on your gun very easily and it offers a major improvement over stock with no added headaches. If you want to reduce the recoil of your marker I highly recommend this

Im wonderin the same thing! I also wanted to know if you had any other suggestions on upgradeing the internals?

To order one simply look at the picture of it and right next to the picture it says link to site.
As far as upgrading the internals I wouldn't touch anything else internally. Tippmann did an excellent job of designing this marker to work with a CO2 tank. The only recommendations I could make are to get any decent barrel and a double trigger. With the money you have left over buy good paint. I just finished buying 2 autocockers, one is a mini orracle and the other is a shocktech right feed. Both guns are working perfectly and I don't chop any paint (I bought an antichop bolt) yet believe it or not I liked my Tippmann way better than either one and wish I had it back. Time to start shopping.

In reply to Mehs comment ( it seems useless) have u ever felt the weight of a Tippmann hammer. They have to be the heaviest of any marker made. The marker has some definate kick when u fire it. It doesn't make any difference when your up close but if u want to shoot a mask or hopper at 70 feet it makes a big difference. As far as upgrades go I would buy a good barrel first and if u plan to keep your Tippmann this would be my second upgrade.
