98 Custom Pro
No cleaning bolt
No paint or muck in the bolt
No moving parts
None, WIN WIN SITUATION
I bought this for Christmas and went paintballin New Year's Day. I bought it because I hate taking my gun apart. It was magic, my first hit of the day way a gun hit right nest to my trigger. No paint got in the bolt, but it got all over the seal bolt. It was awesome. It is super cheap on Rap4 also. For $12.95, it is a vital upgrade to any 98.
The easiest, cheapest upgrade that makes your 98's internals protected.
I've had this for a few months now, and I've even pitted it against the Rocket Cock 2 from whoever makes that. There is NO comparison. BT's Sealed bolt system is without a doubt one of the best 'mods' available for the 98c.
The Sealed Cocking System does in fact quiet down the operation of the marker, as well as prevents dirt, grime, and other debris from getting into the inner workings of the 98c.
Installation is also a breeze. It's as easy as replacing the cocking rod and bolting the Composite pieces on using the supplied hardware.
I love this thing. It's made my 98c quieter and it just looks really cool!
bt sealed bolt system
alright so i wanted this because im a klutz and keep on dropping my 98 custom during woodsball play. when i got it (ebay, it was like $10) i immediately put it on to test it out. installation was very simple, just one problem. when i put it on, i found that if i tightened the screws a lot, the bolt wouldnt move, cocking or otherwise. so i loosened it and now the screws are just a little loose, no biggy, as long as the screws dont fall off. anyways, i tested it out with my whisper barrel, and wow, what a difference! the whisper has so much porting, so it can handle more air, and the gun was really quiet. it did raise the velocity ever so slightly, because the CO2 that would otherwise pop out of the open bolt had to go through the barrel. again, no biggy, just lowering the velocity takes care of it (actually, its a good thing, now that i think of it. now i use less CO2 to shoot the same velocity). there is also no cock ring blowback, meaning that once you cock the ring and put it back, it wont move even though the bolt is. it also is very durable.
i've heard some statements regarding that this will increase the accuracy. i dont know how it would, it didnt for me, but im not taking off for it because thats not what i got it for. i also heard from a couple reviews that the ring is blocked by some buttstocks. i dont have a buttstock and i probably wont get one, so i wont take off for that, either.
i recommend this product because it
a. quiets the gun
b. keeps the gun clean
c. you use less CO2
d. cheap and durable
e. no cock ring blowback
i strongly suggest anyone who is even thinking about getting one, get it.

Keeps internals clean, quiets marker sound
Have to take the whole gun apart to put it on
This product does what it says it will do, keep your internals clean by covering up the hammer opening.
On a side note, it does make your gun a bit quieter when firing, but not by much.
I did not like having to take the whole gun apart to put this product on, but that was the only way to switch the bolt handle to the included one with the kit. However, now that it's on, disassembly of the gun is normal, take off the 6 screws.
I would have liked to have seen an allen wrench included for the included bolts, but I have many wrenches so no biggy. I'm just thinking of the kid who gets his first gun and gets this product, then doesn't have an allen wrench.
(The Tippmann wrenches don't fit it)
I would purchase this product for the protection it offers against stuff getting into your guns internals.
This product is simply amazing. It took me about 5 minutes to install.
It eliminates that moving bolt on the side of the gun, which while it looks really cool, hurts like hell if you get your thumb caught. It also eliminates snagging on the bolt.
It protects the markers internals from paint and dirt getting in, so thats an obvious plus.
Because it costs so little and does so much, I'll give it a 10. I can't think of anything that would make it better.

I got this because a big problem with my 98 was dirt would get in the gun and jam up the spring resulting in the gun uncocking. So one day after I played at the local fied, I went to the fields shop and bought it. After I got it I went home and Installed it. It was easy but for a noob who has never taking apart his gun before, it will be a challenge. You have to open up the gun, take out the old cocking handle, put the new one in, close up the gun, and screw in the plastic cover (using the two screws over and under the space where the cocking handle went). I dont care that the thing is plastic. As long as it dont break easy and it does its job, its fine with me. I found that it doesnt really quiet the gun at all. It just changes the sound of the gun when you fire, a little bit. The only real weaknesses I found was that if you have a flatline, the shroud might not fit right and you might have to cut it and if you have a adjustable stock, the rocket cock pervents it from folding all the way. Just the first position will be blocked.
I built a "rocket cock" based on this design but it was not nearly as durable and broke
I use a Custom 98 with a Flatline barrel system
I use Diablo 13 paint, it seems to work better with the Flatline (i think b/c of the thicker than normal shell)
Quiets the gun
No more moving parts
Had to cut Flatline shroud to install
Looks kinda strange
I recieved my bolt system and immediately realized my mistake. It wouldnt fit on the gun b/c of my flatline shroud. The top screw was slightly covered. I had to use a wood file to cut away some of the shroud. My initial reason for making a rocket cock was to cover the cock slot. I slide often and my gear gets pretty dirty. I always got paint and dirt inside my Tippmann and had to clean it.(If you have a 98 you know wat a chores this is.) Also, one of the things I really disliked about the Tippmann was the moving bolt. It got on my nerves mostly b/c I kept hitting my thumb on the bolt and jamming the gun,not to mention my poor thumb. The rocket cock covers the bolt and completely eliminates this problem. It also quiets the gun which is good in woodsball when you want to keep a low profile. This is definitely an upgrade worth getting (especially for the price). Plus its alot less work than making ur own.(Which would probably break the second time you used it, like mine.)
Buy it its worth the money plus its an easy install. Unless you have the flatline then its a little bit of work, but still worth it.

Keeps Paint out of your Marker
Cool rear cocking system
Need to take apart marker to install
I found the Seal Bolt System pretty helpfull. It closed the opening and keeps paint out of your marker. This helps in keeping you from taking your marker apart to clean. The only thing that was difficult is that if you over tighten the screws it won't work. (It took me a while to figure out why it wasn't working) It is a little difficult with a stock on but works none the less.
I really liked it. It helped out a lot but instally was a bit difficult

Keeps crap out of the marker.
Need to do a little cutting of the shroud if you use a flatline.
This is a good product. It keeps the inside of the marker free from dirt and charging handle does not move forward and back when the marker is fired. Use wire cutters on the flatline shroud to cut a groove for the top over the screw. When you look at it you will know what i'm saying.
A good war to keep the inside of the marker clean, 15 min install, 30 if you got a flatline. Great for $20
Protects the inside of your marker and reduces noise slightly. A cheap upgrade.
I remember the day I went out after buying the Rocket Cock (as it's referred to by some) and played with a few friends of mine. Well, through the course of the day my marker took a close hit to where my Rocket Cock was protecting the cock slot. Paint spattered all over the Rocket Cock, but the insides of my gun were safe. It saved the rest of my day. Instead of spending the next half hour meticulously cleaning out the insides of my marker, I just got ready for the next game. For 15-20 dollars, this upgrade is something you simply CANNOT live without.
Also, you don't have to worry about your marker's cocking bolt catching against anything while it's firing, the Rocket Cock gives your Custom no moving parts on the outside. It's constructed of high impact plastic and you should have no worries about it crapping out on you.
Buy it because it's cheap, durable, and covers that one chink in the 98 Custom's armor, the cock slot.
