Tippmann 98 custom / 14" CP Classic barell / Tippmann Expansion chamber / 32 degrees coiled remote line / Pro-Team Products Collapsible Stock / 20 oz PMI CO2 bottle / 32x scope / polished internals and trigger mods
adds stabality thus increasing accuracy
rattles where stock adjust
First off is the common misconception that the stock itself fits loose in the marker....actually this stock fits snuggly in where the stock endcap sits. After installing mine I noticed it was slightly crooked and assumed I could just turn it to straighten it out but it fit so well I actually had to loosen the bolts for the casing to turn it.
This stock as with any stock will allow you to place it firmly into your shoulder allowing you to stabalize the marker with your body and not just your arms.
Instalaiton was a breeze....simply field strip your marker and replace the stock endcap on the rear of the marker with the stock...it coulnt be simpler
Since it is a collapsible stock you can adjust the stock to fit your needs IE if your a speedball player who plays woods you can collapse it during the short speedball games and it will not get in your way.....another advantage of being able to adjust it is if you have long arms like me it still feels comfortable almost as comfortable as a 12 guage shotgun.
NOW THE NEGATIVE....the stock fits snuggly like stated earlier but where the stock actually extends for adjustment it is made loosly meaning if you wiggle your marker you will get a slight rattleing noise although it is not extremly noticable it is still there. I will be experimenting with teflon tape on this to see if i can correct this minor negative
besides the rattle this is a great product i will recoment to anyone who owns a tippmann and plays rec ball so a sturdy 9 out of 10
Flatline barrel system
maddman spring kit
proteam car stock
It really is nice to help increase the stability of the gun
you have to take apart the gun to take it off , not hard though
Its very nice to have. Helps out alot in woods. It really is nice to help increase the stability of the gun and its nice to be able to adjust the lenghts. Its nice that you can adjust it in and out for when your in those tight spots. I play both woods and speed and if im just playing for fun, i can just put it all the way in and it doesnt get in the way much and can be taken of for tournys and such. I love mine, I can't imagine playing woods without it.
Good buy, i got mine brand new off ebay for like 45 so look for good deals before you buy.
Tippmann 98 C
Pro Team FX Front End with out the A-Frame sight
Looks COOL And stabilizes you gun also is adjustable
Need raised sight rail to see with a mask on.
I this product looks sweeet on you gun it realy strikes fear
in the new players.
It realy stabilizes you gun and you can aim better with in on.
the only thing is that you need a raised sight rail for it to
be used with your mask on.
But the pro team handle sight will work great with it.
Will make gun look like CAR 15, or M16
I recomend that you get it if you can get the handle sight.($80)

Tippmann 98 custom
Proteam Sniper F/X Stock
Proteam Commando F/X Fore-end
Proteam Commando F/X Sight
(this is the standard "Sniper F/X Plus" marker)
Adjustable, ability to use sling, looks good
takes a lot of configuration to make it fit just right, noisy
The Collapsible stock is pretty cool, and it does look better on your scenario type marker than the solid stock. but the solid stock is much more comfortable and easier to use. it also takes a lot of time playing with the stock to get it to work correcty, I had to change the distance on the screw that held the sliding part in place, a little complicated and time consuming. also trying to make it stay on straight can be difficult at first, this problem is solved with the A-5 version, because of its three pronged attachment to the marker
Get the Solid stock unless you really need the short version.
I have one of these and I have to say, this is one of the best things you could buy for your Tippmann. Keep in mind that I don't play tourney ball anymore simply because I feel that it is a waste of my time and money to see a bunch of grown men fight over a five dollar trophy. So anyway, I went to a Scenario Game at Ft. Campbell ( home of 101st Airborne, Godbless) and most of the military boys had the collapsible stocks. Why? Because :
1)they are almost indestructible ( I own an Angel Speed and I feel that if I look at it it will break.
2) It gives you much needed support for your Tippmann.
3) Do you hunt? Because this thing feels EXACTLY like my .247 Rifle ( I like to challenge myself when I deer hunt.)
4) Okay, so you play speedball and you think that it will get in your way, right? WRONG! For MOST people the smallest position that the stock has is just enough to allow you to tuck into that bunker and still have a steady shot.
Most people are saying that this stock "rattles" too much. One of my friends owns an M-4 Military Assault Rifle that has virtually the same stock on it, same positions and everything and it "rattles" just as much as this stock does so it really isn't a problem. All in all, this stock does its job and makes your Tippy look kickass :) 10 outta 10 !

Tippmann 98 Custom with commando fx upgrades including 14 inch commando barrel front sight with front handguard and the proteam Collapsible Stock.
Looks awesome, good support, and great for a realistic look and feel
need a raised rail to aim and rattles a little
I have played with the stock twice so far and it has good support many people say that it will collapsible back to the orignal postion if you put to much weight on it but it has never done it to me. It does kinda rattle and little bit and if you use it, it might be smart to go and by a remote coil or vertical bottle adapter because it is very uncomftable to have the stock on with the co right under it. also to it is hard to aim with the stock on because the mask prevents it, so you will have to get a raised rail of some type like a Lapco dovetail
If you are in to the real look like i am or play like scenario paintball like i do go and get it. But if you are in to that speed ball stuff i wouldnt even bother it will just get in your way and slow you down. I give it a 10 because it did for me what i wanted it to make the gun look and feel more real
Tippmann 98 Custom (Black)
Tippmann Flatline Barrel
32 Degrees Remote
Mag lite Mini-Mag with red lenses
It makes your gun look cool. THATS ALL
Its too noisy and the butt is made out of plastic
The gun i had was a Black Maxx which I don't recommend. I got tired of losing in games when most of my friends have Pro-Markers so I bought a Tippmann Proshop Sniper. All that is is a 98 Custom with a flatline, stock, and remote. When it came, you had to assemble it. After I got it assembled, i took it in my yard and tested it out by shooting at a tree. I thought that this marker was going to be awesome. When my first game game, it didn't go that good.
WHEN YOU HAVE ON A MASK, THE STOCK IS IN THE WAY. FROM THIS, YOU ARE UNABLE TO USE YOUR SIGHTING DEVICE. ALL IT DOES IS MAKES YOUR GUN HEAVER, GIVES YOUR POSITION AWAY FROM THE PLASTIC PIECE(BUTT PLATE) RATTLING. YOU ARE ALWAYS TIGHTENING THE SLIDE LEVER WITH ALLEN WRENCHES. The only good think that i can say about it is that it makes the gun look cool, it is a good counterweight of your hooper it you play with a remote, and you can put a Military Stock Pouch on it it hold an extra pod or it can hold a shotgun shell holder to hold 12 gram CO2 tanks for you secondary sidearm if you use one.
My best suggestion: DON'T BUY IT
It is a waste of money. I don't like this product whatsoever. The only thing it is good for is show
Tippman 98 Custom w/RT, rocket cock, sling, expansion chamber, firestar bolt, Ricochet AK hopper, pro-team 14" forend w/front sight, rear sight, and car stock. Plus remote 4+1 harness and a sling. Zeus G2, spare clip and a holster for a secondary.
-love the rifle feel
I primarily play woods ball, and I'm an avid hunter so being able to give the rifle feel to my 98 is something I love. Its hard to see the sights unless you get a raised sight rail of some kind, or i found that the Daisy Red Dot sight works great for it too. I'll stick to my M4 looking set up. I really like how its adjustable for close quarters or if there is some distances involved. I've also added a real M4 sling on it, its the perfect add on.
If your a rifle shooter i would recommend this you'll feel right at home, but u will also need some sort of sight rail, I really love what Pro-Team has come out with. I am giving this an 8 because you need a sight rail.

cant use the stander-ed sites. cheep(quality) expensive(cost) plastic and comes LOOSE.
I was unable to use the stock and the standard site at the same time. Make for useless dead weight in the back of the marker or poor shots. Looks great but looks alone don't make up for how much it comes loose and cost.
useless product unless your going for looks.
Save your money. Using nothing is better then this. There are better stocks out there.
