The Lapco front grip is machined aluminum and black powder coated for durability. This grip is machined to fit your fingers and has a barrel plug-carrying hole on the bottom of the grip. Kit includes; Replacement front grip.
The Lapco Front Grip is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I never used any other grip then the standard that comes with the gun.
Triumph TL 35 Loader
14"JJ Ceramic Full Tilt
Just Started on my new ICD Lasoya Promaster
Gets a little cold in the cold weather
Just an awesome sub $20 upgrade for anyone looking to improve there 98c. Looks great feels great, and changes the appearance of the whole gun, I have big hands and was defiantly more comfortable for me then the standard grip. Was very easy to install and still looks great after 6 months of wear and tear, Go buy one you wont be sorry.
I am not sure why you wouldnt want one of these, better then pie and chips.

~VERY STURDY. This is a great imporvement over the cruddy plastic stock grip.
~Very Ergonomic. It's grooved for your fingers.
~Comes In Chrome&Black. In addition, its aluminium so you could anodize it pretty much any color.
~Great For Big Man Hands. It's longer and more beefy for bigger hands.
~Barrel Plug Holder. It's hollow on the bottom so you can stick your barrel plug in there. NO MORE LOST PLUGS!
~If you use this during the winter, make sure to wear gloves or your hands may stick. :ox
As I said before, this is a great aftermarket upgrade for any TIPPMANN M98 owner out there. It looks great and offers a sturdy base to shoot off of too!

Long- it helps when bunkered, u can easily stick this over ur head with out exposing ur hands. I play in a field that allows ur marker to get hit without getting "killed". This is the most important thing for 17 bucks it can save ur ass
Barrel Plug Holder- the bottom is open so u can fit a barrel plug in it a use that for storeage. Its just handy to have while ur getting shot.
Easy to Put in- For those of u who think circle fits in the square this is the EASIEST thing to put on.........one screw out .....slide in..... screw in
nothing really -cold.......i played a few times in november and december and it gets kindof cold......SUCK IT UP.....u if u can live through a paintball hit ull deal with the cold
Its not gonna be the best upgrade for ur gun but its a GOOD thing to have.......if u can afford......($17) O MY GOD.....and u have a 98 Get this its accually saved my ass
-------i gave it a 9 cuz i feel the perfect product dosent exist-----
all of u who put this as a 10 ur wrong nothing is perfect..........best grip thing ive seen even compared to gas through

This is by far the best thing you can get for your 98c for a cheap upgrade. It does add a bit of weight but that is ok, because this foregrip is 100% better then the stock plastic foregrip which is well plastic that should tell you everything. I also like the feel of this grip over the stock foregrip. This is the perfect addition to any 98.
I reccomend this to all 98 owners that dont have a vertical adapter or a HPA kit. I am going to give this product a 10 because tp simply put it, it kicks ass.

It is very solid and is big enuf to fit my whole hand.
The bottom is unplugged
The stock front grip seemed too small for everyone on my team who used it. i picked up 2 of these on EBAY for bout 20.00 including S/H. great deal. everyone loves hwo they feel and you can put your whole hand on it! a must have. looks good and matched the X-chamber on my A5
It is very solid, big enuf for entire hand. Definatelt a must buy.
Tippmann 98Pro Performance upgrades include:
Shocktech super fly bolt(not even sure if it help any)
Dead on Paintball pro seal (super fly and pro seal work good together)
Tippmann Cyclone feeder
Tippmann Response Trigger or A.P.E. trigger
Dead on paintball RVA
Could be more comfortable
Very nice alternative to the stock front grip.
Longer, so no more pinkie hang offs.
Strong, so no more cracks and breaks.
Snug, very good fit to the 98, no wobbling at all.
Price, reasonable enough.
Comfortable, It's comfortable but, could be more comfortable if it was fatter and matched the 98 handle better.
If you're tired of the stock handle buy this! I give this a 9 because it could be more comfortable. But by no means is it a bad product!

Told it gets cold sumtimes but i wear gloves
This grip feels alot better then the stock grip and is a tough metal cant mess it up and I havnt even scratched it yet! Its nice a long case you got larger hands or just want alittle more to work with in a bunker or what not, and its at a good price. This is a good buy if you want a good tough replacement grip for your 98, or if you just want one that looks diffrent then everyone elses!
Model 98, w/fullboar RVA cocking gizmo, lapco drop forward, bigshot, carbine to 98 barrel adapter, J&J brass barrel, proteam remote, redz 6+1 harness, ACI sub Zero six, stupid tippmann vertical air adapter (its hard to put on, or am I just lazy?).
it's long. it's thin, it looks cool.
it's nice, but get an X-chamber if you run co2. it will boost you co2 effiency
