As you can see, this is an awesome gun! I personally think its the best on the market. You should get a flatline to increase your distance first. the next thing you need is a scope. I have a Tasco 4x15 rifle scope and it works great. Any scope is fine if it has cross-hairs and can zoom. Next, you need a stock. you shield get either a car stock, or a sniper stock, any one is fine, just get one to increase your stability. Next, you might want a drop forward or a remote to balance your gun. The last upgrade I think you might look into is a bi-pod, this is the thing that mounts on your barrel, it has two legs protruding from it that fold up. this will also give you added stability, and you can mount you gun on something easier. These upgrades are for the sniping woods ball type. If you are more of an arena player, you might want to think about getting a response trigger or an e-bolt. Don't get the flatline, stock, bi-pod, or scope if you are all speedball, personally i hate speedball. get the sniper set up i said above and start playing woodsball!!!!
over all this is a great gun and i think you'll like it!
has never broken
great for all skill level
cant field strip
This gun was my first semi-auto gun. i got this gun about 4 years ago and it hasnt broke on me yet. i do recomend you buy a new barrel because the stock barrel shoots like crap. This gun is very powerful and accurate with my smart parts progressive barrel. One problem i have found with this gun however is that you need to buy good paint because the gun will bust the balls if you dont. this can be a problem because you spend a lot of money on paint. also if you dont know what you are doing it can be hard to clean. but overall this gun works great
This is by far my most favorite gun i own because it is so durable. it has never broke on me. i totally recomend this gun to people who are looking for a non expensive gun but still works great. i rate this gun a 10
The Tippmann M98 was the first PB gun I used. I believe it to be a great entry level gun. The M98 is rugged and reliable, it is easy to maintain and clean. The M98 lags behind some other guns in areas like Rate of Fire, breakage, and weight; but you have to remember, this is a gun is designed to for rugged use and entry level play. I often compare my M98 to the Ak47 of paintball, reliable, distinct, rugged, accurate (w/Flatline), heavy, and definitely not beautiful. Great Gun.
My M98 worked fine the first year I got it, afterwards it became completely unreliable. My M98 chops 1 ball out of evey 3 with the flatline, it has become a gas hog, and lost its accuracy. This may be an isolated incident, but M98 can become very frustrating if you break it. (To all those PB veterans out there, yes, I have cleaned my gun, and yes I have let the people at the shop try and fix it. If you experience what I'm Experiencing, can you help me out?)
If you're considering buying the M98 for an entry level gun, you've made the right choice. However, if you are a dedicated PB player, try out the new electro guns for a change, you might be suprised by their superior performance. Also, the M98 can be a major pain if you are used to lighter guns (i.e. Spyders).
None this gun is the best on the market for the price
Tippman Model 98, double trigger, wisper barrel, Drop Foward,
Everything i put up for my marker setup
Shoots Strong far accurate. durable CHEAP!!!
Heavy bulky but that's it
the paintball gun is the very durable (my friend is selling his gun cheap with everything upgraded Instant message him on First To fall 7 for info) There are many upgrades for this gun to suit your needs . if u dont like a single trigger u can buy one and have it installed overall u can get a pro gun for a cheap price. thank You for reading this review and please let me urge you to BUY THIS GUN my friend is selling
I just got my tippmann 98 and i knew it was going to be good to me. The day i got it i went paint balling and i shot about 1k paintballs that day and non of the balls choped in the barrel. I know that's a lot of paintballs for 1 day but i could'nt resist shooting my new gun. While it shot straight and kinda slow so i made the volicety higher and it worked awesom. It shot as fast as i could pull the trigger. And to tell you the truth the gun is NOT bulky at all. It's light and is easy to turn the safety off. I'm thinking of getting a auto hopper because the stock hopper is hard to close.
It's an aweson gun and i had no problems with it. I'm thinking of an auto hopper and maybe a new barrel for my birthday. WHAT EVER YOU DO CLEAN IT AS SOON AS YOU GET IT if want instructions on how to clean it go to a paintball dealer ship or ask a friend.
Tippmann Model 98
14" Custom Products Barrel
Brass Eagle Lazer Scope
The key strengths of the model 98 are speed, accuracy, great for woods play!
The 8" barrel!!
This is one of the best guns i've used! This gun is great for beginners and experienced players! I suggest a new barrel for this gun (but it is not a must need). I am a woods type of guy, so i prefer the model 98! I am a very satisfied customer with my model 98!
This gun is the best gun I have ever used so far. If you like to dominate in the woods, this is your best choice!

This was my first gun opon entering paintball and I love it. Its inexpensive for the quality
I would have gotten a barrel to improve the accuracy but I am switching to a mini orracle with nitro. I would go nitro with this gun unless you really have it suped up and CO2 has been fine for me.
Great entry level gun
and very customisable
many guns 70 bucks more
arent as good
The barel, the grips(electronics), the double trigger
Tippmann fiability,good aim
He not very fast ... not much upgrade
The Model 98 is the predecessor to the 98 Custom. It features all the core technology of the 98 Custom such as the CVX Valve, Clamshell design, and a True .45 Grip. The Model 98 can accept the Flatline Barrel System and the Comp-Air System with no complicated modifications. The E-bolt Electric System and The Response Trigger System can be retro-fitted to the Model 98 by the Tippmann Proshop, However, due to custom milling of the receiver, the marker must be sent in to the Tippmann Proshop.
-J&J Ceramic 12" barrel
-16 oz. tank
new barrel, stock sux!!!
Good for beginners.
Doesn't fire very fast &
hard to fieldstrip.
If you are thinking of starting to paintball, the first gun you should get is this. It is very easy to maintain. It is a very good buy, standing at less than 200! It can take any sort of beating you give it. It is upgradable. And if you upgrade it right, it can waste away opposition in speed-ball and wood-ball(for the price =P).
If you are looking for a cheap, upgradable, reliable and accurate gun, the model 98 is for you.
