The steel Engler 98C Magwell features machined aluminum construction and is black anodized to enhance its durability and lifespan. Designed for the Tippmann 98C, the Engler magwell provides your marker with mil-sim looks and rugged durability that can handle tough woodsball play.
The Bossman Enterprises 98c Magwell is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Tippmann 98C Bossmann Mag, M16 Apex Barrel, Adjustable Car Stock, Rocket Cock II, M16 Carry Handle and Sight, Dead On Double Trigger
Sturdy, Impressive Looking
A little adjusting needed to fit for double trigger, but nothing hard
This is by far the best magazine I have seen available for the 98C. Anyone going for the M16 look or just looking for a good magazine should get this. I got mine off ebay for $35 and I think thats where they are most common. Spec Ops has them but they're always out of stock (I waited for 4 months). It is sooo easy to install and take off.
I recommend this magazine to any 98C owner just looking for a good looking and functional magazine.
Tippmann Custom pro
Tacamo sight rail
BT Bungee Sling
Easy to install
Paint scratches easily
Had to remove front grip and drop forward for install
First off, this is only a cosmetic modification, it does not serve any functional purpose, other than looking cool. It took some adjusting to get it to line up properly, but all-in-all it was a very easy install. There are two real issues i have with this mag, the first being it covers the front grip (which i loved the feel and function of) so it is going to take some getting used to firing from a new grip position. Second, it does not work with a drop forward, because the line is pushed too far forward, causing it to rub on the back of mag, scratching the paint before i even had the opportunity to abuse it in the field. The mag itself weighs less than the drop forward did, so my marker is actually lighter than before, even though it looks much larger.
This is the best looking mag for the 98 custom available, but having to remove the front grip and drop forward is a pain in the ass, as i now have to get used to the marker all over again. It is the best looking cosmetic modification you could spend your money on!!!

Ape rampage board
Opsgear 6.5" M4 Floating Shroud

Rocket Cock 2

PE 20oz C02 with remote line

Makes it look like an m4
Front grip requires a box in front of the mag
great product, but i wish bossman would make the edges less sharp- and try to concave the front to make it a little more m4 looking . I would have liked if the mag was moved a little more up to offset the grip box . Overall good product, Good guy, Would deal again A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Well it is the best mag you can buy other then making one yourself.
-Metadyne RIS Handguard
-X7 Action Grip
-Trinity Wire Stock
-Cyclone Feed w/ Tac Cap
-Supa Fly Bolt
-BSA Red Dot
Made of aluminum
Gives a milspec look to marker
Not to expensive
Holes did not line up right
I have had the mag for less than a month but I love it. It gives my custom 98 the military look that I have been wanting. The mag is made of aluminum which I like because it holds up very well when I am playing. Just know that this is not an air-thru style mag setup.
The only issue I had with the product is that when I went to install the magwell the holes did not quite line up right. It was not to bad though all I had to do was just use some elbow grease to work it in there. The only other thing that I could say to people that are looking to buy this product is that it can scratch the paint on your 98 alittle when installing, just be careful.
I highly recommend the product if your wanting to have that milspec look. I got mine for under $40 at usmilitarygear.com so the price is good for the magwell. Just be warned that you may have to mess with alignment holes when installing. Overall I like my purchase.

98 Custom With Response Trigger, BT Carbine Stock, Opsgear Interceptor Barrel, Opsgear M4 Barrel Shroud And sight raiser, Cyclone Feed And x-7 Hopper
Didnt line Up Well on installation
A little heavy
It is not a bad upgrade if your looking for a mil sim upgrade that will definitly increase the realism and feel of the gun. Installation sucked a little because it didnt line up well and it makes for more stuff to tear apart when you have to clean. But again it looks cool and its solid so its not going to crack or something
Tippmann Custom Pro Camo
16" SP progressive barrel
20" SP tactical barrel
Tapco CAR stock

-Very light wheight
-Best looking design
Not to sure since I havn't gotten to field test it yet.
When I finaly recived it I was preatty hyped cause I have been looking for a magazine for my gun but all I kept finding were A5 an X7 mags but no 98C until I found this one. When I took it out and looked at it the first thing I noticed was how light it was. Next was how it was put together and after through inspection it looked preatty soildly built. The install was really easy just a few screws and nuts but you have to take out two of the body bolts. Once its on just sit back and check at how sweet it looks on your gun.
I would recomend it to anyone with a 98C. It really gives the gun a good look.
Aci High Pressure Coiled Remote
Dye Sticky Grip
Pro Team Model 98 Commando f/x Stock
Smart Parts 20oz tank with on off valve
TippMann Custom 98
Built well no problems, my holes lined up no prob.
None that I can think of.
I like the way its built, the clip very close to a real one. if you get this you might want to think about geting a accessory rail to put a grip on. In short words if you are looking at this buy it. You will not be disapointed! I found mine on ebay.
If you are building a 98c M16, a must buy nothing else comes close.

Sturdy,light weight,matches marker quite well
The use of an airsoft-mag(if you wanna call that as one)
I ordered mine off E-Bayfor like $35 USD,and when it came in I was suprised(and believe me I don't suprise that easy).Boss man did a hell of a job on this mag kit,I was going to get the OPS-Gear M-4 mag kit but they halted production on it,and since I have already bought one(for a friend of mine for Christmas)I have to use that as a comparison because this will win by default otherwise.so I am going to list the pros and cons comparisons to the Ops-Gear,so here we go!
Bossman Pros:Sets the mag itself back by the trigger group just like the real M-16/M-4,comes with a larger unit to cover the foregrip,The finish on the mag kit matches the marker very well.Extemely sturdy construction.Light weight.
Bossman Cons:Uses an all metal airsoft mag(if this is a weakness)?
Ops-Gear Cons:Great finish on the mag not to realistic to look at,the mag kit sits right where the forward grip is.Leaves a huge gap,heavy and awkward has a tendancy to make the marker front heavy(due to a solid aluminum construction).Finish is great on this mag kit.
Bossman Installation:Wasn't bad just a tight fit had to tap mine down with a rubber mallet to get it to set in but holds really well,NO WOBBLE WHAT SO EVER.
OpsGear Installation:Easy once we got the right screw,the OD(Outside Diameter) of the screw was to big for the not on the forward grip,there fore we had to get one that would fit.
If you are looking for a 98 Custom mag kit look no further i have abused mine by crawling thru eveything,my markers finish is flaking away but the mag kit and I must say without this mag kit I would have never been able to achieve my SR-25 SD mil sim marker without it,now I wished he made a AK-47 mag kit for the 98 Custom
