Tippmann 98 Custom
12oz co2 tank
BT folding stock
BT raised sight rail
14inch j&j ceramic
32 degrees flame drop forward
Its a good carrying handle i guess
Doesnt go on straight
Way too expensive
Well i got this little sight rail and when i put it on i found that it didnt go on straight. I worked with it for a while and scratched my gun up a little only to have it still pointing to the left or right (cant remember). But the sight rail doesnt go on straight at all making it useless as a sight because u would be aiming to one side of your target.
I dont recomend it it doesnt go on straight and is overpriced u'd be better off with a lapco dovetail(i think thats what it is)those are alot cheaper and serve their purpose. i give it a 6 because for something so simple they should be able to make it go on straight and not have it cost u $35.

Well built,easy mounting,will accept scopes
Mine was with the cost,may have to move your hopper(see review)
I was looking for a way to mount a scope on my Custom 98 as I should since I play as sniper so that out of the way we will get it on.
The Good-Vy well built and sturdy once mounted,easy installation you can use allen wrenches or titghten by finger as the screws for the clamps are gnurled(yes they have a texture as to grip them)i prefer wrenches myself.Has 3/8's weaver rail built into it so mounting scopes is possible(3/8's only and I believe that translates to anything under a 40mm scope/red dot).I t will put the scope right in sight in with a mask on as you know doing this with a stock on any Tippmann you will have to raise it to sight it in.The rail will mount solid to the reciever once tightened aka will not move I never have had mine move at all.
The Bad-The thumb/hex screws are stainless steel aka stands out on the black backgound of the anodizing also if you are looking for something adjustable this isn't for hence the name Fixed Sight Rail.The other bad thing if you go with an Air rifle scope like I did you will probably have to move your hopper as I did (first with a LAPCO Direct Feed but it raised my profile so I opted for the Cyclone feed and a Tac-Cap).If you are going to use a red dot or someother compact sight it won't be necessary but I opted for a 3x9x32 air rifle scope which is considerbly longer and therefore kept putting the scope into the hopper there fore opted to move the hopper.
Overall a good product does what I want it to got my scope mounted and when I roll my marker into my shoulder I'm sighted in.Other than the few minuses I have to rate it a 9
9 out of 10

Maybe price --- $25
There was some guy with 'Duke' in his screenname that said this rail doesn't fit right. His may have had messed up screws or clampers. (the parts that come off to remove, install, or adjust the sight rail) But mine fit on perfect. The edge sees right down the angle of the barrel. And it looks good, too. It gives it more of an outward appearance and style.

Stable Sight Platform, Handy Carrying Rail
Not Very Level
This sight rail is very handy. It provides a stable platform if you want to mount scope or sights, but doing so you need to adjust the sights. when this mounts to the railing of the tippmann 98 (for me), it doesn't attach straight, but rather at an angle. A good product overall, I just have problems with its angle at times.
Good for looks and for function... but minor discrepancies are irritating.
