this is the only gun i have and that i will ever use. specially when i dumped about $1000 into this gun heh
custom flatline barrel system
psycho ballistics billet power tube and front bolt
psycho ballistics x-core
psycho ballistics billet power tube and front bolt
various tanks of sorts
everything i have
This is the best marker in the world from my point of view...so many thing you can add to this gun and its drop-dead beutiful with all the mods i have on this thing...the only thing thats bad is that...its just black...thats good in many respects but its just seems too stock sometimes....anything paint thats rps works great...they work wonderful in my barrels....
you have to spend a lot of money to make your gun elite
good for noobs to experts, my first gun was a tippmann and im going to stick with tippmanns.
contrary to what people say, the stock barrel is not all that horrible. I shot around 2000 rnds through it, and yet to have a ball break. The accuracy isnt the best, but it really dosent matter that much because paintballs arent accurate to begin with.
If you are just starting out and dont know what gun to get, this is the answer to your question. If you are more experienced, it is still a good gun, but you might want to think about something better rather than upgrading the hell out of the tippmann.

drop forward, grips, trigger, rocket cock or fullboar rear cocking, and a revy
kind of acurate
i havent had a ball break yet with my barrel
good tippmann customer service they sent me a new elbow (mine broke) in like a day for free.
thats about it it is over all pretty good
it is very upgradeable
and i was gonna get a mag an national paintball but i seen the tippmann and i figured i could put a butload of upgrades on it
i have beatin electros and real good semis with it! :-)
Spyder Compact- More Comfortable to use but has the worst quality.
Brass Eagle Stingray II- No comment
Model 98 Classic with the Flatline and Brass Eagle Red-Dot Sight(don't laugh, the sight works good)
THE FLATLINE! If you own or are planning to purchase a Model 98 GET A FLATLINE. Its the best barrel available for it. Get a INTRUDER ASSAULT EXPANSION CHAMBER. They're pricey but my friends got one and I want it.
-It's a freaking tank: I could throw this thing into a brick wall and it would still
-Its reliable: I've used my gun roughly 40 times and I have never had one problem with it. Thats why you see so many paintball fields carry the Model 98 as a rental gun. Because it will never fail.
-Nice feel: The foregrip is a nice thing to have. playing for hours can put a damper on your wrists but this design keeps them from hurting. No need for a aftermarket grip either. The stock grip is better than a Dye Sticky.
-The Clamshell Design: When I took the 2 halves apart the first couple fo times I thought I was disarming a bomb! If you wind up taking it apart DO IT OVER A TABLE. Dont loose any pins, especially the elbow latch spring behind the front sight button. It will pop right out and fly somewhere if you dont cup your hand over the area.
Taking it apart requires experience, so dont do it unless you have to. Read the manual if you wannas ee what the insides look like. Other than that the gun is a solid gun. If your not the kinda guy thats gonna play paintball once a week or more and play in every tournament on your coast then this is a good gun for you. Equiped with the Flatline Barrel System it is, in my opinion, the best woodsball gun out there. It's beefy, reliable, and can shoot far and around trees with the flatline.
ACI 4 or 6 stage (need vert. tank adaptor)
Any barrel upgrade.
Reliable- With the exception of the valve (warranty) has never broke
Great beginners gun, even though with upgrades can make this a great gun
Have only seen one broken (rear sight broke off, end cap no longer stays in) (can't blame the gun)
Long (especially with 16" barrel and 20 oz) This could also be good for snipers
Loud, has a very distinctive PING! This is greatly reduced with a bigger barrel
This gun can scare people into hiding with a short barrel ; p
Great beginners gun, can be upgraded to make a great marker
This Marker is sweet. I have a Tippmann Pro-lite, and you can't stop these markers. The are durable, and with the drop forward the weight is distributed pretty well. The Full Boar system covers the opening that the stock bolt pokes through, and doesn't let dirt and paint into that area. The screws are designed to allow you to oil through them. Both barrels a decent, but the DYE rocks. It's accurate, quite, and looks cool. This gun will run nitrogen out of the box, but you should upgrade to the low pressure kit, before you add that. The
I'ts a little heavy, but not that big a deal to me. It is also a little loud, but again who cares..... I really don't have any real problems with this marker at all.
You don't have one yourself....
Buy IT now. sweet for those who are rec players, and want Tippy quality.
Piranah (excuse my spelling) Spyders, Autococker (single Trigger)
Xchamber, BSA red dot sight (better than those POS ADCO ones but you pay a little extra.) Of course the M98, 12' Quiet Riot Barrel, Responsive Trigger.
New Barrel .... definitely a new barrel. The stock barrel sucks and doesnt shoot far most of the time. When it decides to shoot far it breaks the balls. Response Trigger is pretty cool but its not a necessity.
- Easy to maintain
- Inexpensive so u can spend more on paint andupgrades.
-ease of upgrading
- Trigger pull is great despite what others say. i got a 12ga. shotgun and the trigger pull is 3lbs.
-a little on the heavy side
- stock barre wont shoot cheap paint.
this is a tournament ready marker with a couple of upgrades here and there. I recommend this gun to anyone who wants a good durable gun thts inexpensive and you can get upgrades for if they want to go into a tournament. Great gun and a great price. Good job Tippmann!!!
I used the Rebel LE and didn't like it because it was leaking CO2 so i traded for the Tippman 98.
I have tried a few new barrels. I would go with a 12' barrel. I have used a 32 degrees whisper and i loved it.
I have found just about everything good about this gun. The Tippman has a very short trigger pull and is very powerful. I use it for both long range and cqb. It is a all around great gun. Even with the 8' stock barrel it is very accurate.
When you fire there is a little "ping" noise that it makes. That is about the only bad thing that i have found. But if you like to take you gun apart it is difficult to take apart but that is no big deal.
This is a great gun for beginners and advance players. That is why it is a perfect 10. This gun will fit anyone who wants to play the great game of paintball.
main problem is the stock barrel, 1 in every 5 curve so i suggest a 12 inch barrel 32 degrees carbon fiber stainless, very accurate.
Gun is built solid like a "tank", Pretty good on CO2 compared to other guns, has nice look to it, shoots smooth. very rare for me to have a ball break. very reliable gun. never had problem with the gun, use it on average three times a week. on a 14oz co2 tank i get approx 850-900 shoots
stock barrel is terrible, gun gets pretty heavy with bigger tanks and all accessories. slightly loud gun. GREAT PRICE
i recomend this gun to any body that wants a gun that will be ruged and tuff, none of that plastic crap. It is truly reliable, shoots well and conserves co2. Unlike the spyders i have used in the past which chop balls all the time this gun is powerful yet gentel with your balls. This gun is cheap and i believe not other stock gun of its price range comapers.
