Another APP innovation. Comfort and performance are the best ways to describe this new rubber foregrip for the hottest selling gun on the market, the Tippmann Model 98. Easy installation involves only one screw.
The Allen Paintball Products APP 98 Rubber Foregrip is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Good looks plus the comfort, much better than the ugly tippmann stock foregrip.
Some may find it to be a little bit expensive
I bought this online and saw so stoked about adding it on my tippmann.when i finally got it placed on i was so happy with the comfort the foregrip gives; the looks are nice and i get people gawking at my tippmann 98 custom all the time! it helps when i am aiming my gun a lil upward to have that extra half an inch or so of length on the grip so i can do my lobbing shots a lil bit better so i think. If you do not like the feel of the stock tippmann 98 foregrip thats plastic and short then get this and feel the difference of the allen paintball rubber foregrip.
Tippmann 98 custom or custom pro users, get this.whenever i get my backup marker which will be a custom pro, i will add this onto it.for sure.
Rubber provides firm grip.
Allows for whole hand grasp.
Screw hole doesn't line up correctly with receiver.
Looks a bit cheap.
I purchased my APP rubber foregrip from xtremepaintall for $20. I'm pretty satisfied with it as it provides more of a grip to hold than the stock front grip on 98 Customs. The rubber allows you to have a firm grasp on the marker which aids in control.
The main downside is that when I removed my stock front grip to screw the new one in, the screw would get stuck halfway down. It turns out that the hole on the receiver and the hole on the grip weren't lining up. Apparently APP didn't cut it correctly. I had to do a little custom modding to it. Basically just shaving some of the platic off of the foregrip to make the hole bigger. Works perfectly now, it's just a minor detail that they should have taken care of.
The price is also a bit of a downside. $20 isn't a lot, but it's a tad steep for this piece. I'd say no more than $15 would be max, $10 would be perfect.
Not a necessary upgrade but a nice addition to your 98 Custom, especially if you have large hands.

I generally like the other all feel and look of this grip. I like the overall appearance it adds to the gun. My only real compliant is it definitely does not just slide in and your good to go, the holes don't line up. Its only slightly, but enough the screw wouldn't go in. I had to use my pocket knife and gently open up the whole just a tad, and then it finally lined up correctly. No big deal really and it still was kind of a pain in the butt that could of been avoided.
Good Product, looks good and its comfortable, installation could of been a little easier, more time should of been dedicated to testing these products.
