98->ION thred adapter?

I have searched everywhere but with no luck, was there ever a adapter made to use tippman 98 barrels on a ION threaded marker? I need one for a Enmey project

I have found a few that allow ion barrels on 98's but not the other way around

I imagine that for the price of buying an adapter, you can buy a cheap barrel with the correct threading.

Due to how large model98 barrel threads are they can't really be adapted well to other guns. So no 98 to Ion adapter.

A5 to Ion is available though.

I'm guessing you're wanting a rifled Ion barrel for First Strikes?
Can't think of a barrel that you can get in 98 threads you can't also get for Ions except a rifled FS Lapco
If so you can get a Hammerhead Ion adapter for their rifled FS barrels if that's what your after

Along the lines of Fubarius mentioning the A5 to Ion,have you considered 2 adapters to get the end result. Found the A5 to Ion and a 98 to A5, combine the 2 adapters and you have the combination your looking for. both of these are available from this seller on ebay.

I've used this person myself,never any issues. here are the links:

Paintball Barrel Adapter Tippmann A5 TO ION Connects TO ION Inside Tippmann A5 | eBay

NEW Paintball Barrel Adapter Tippmann 98 TO Tippmann A5 Tippmann X7 BT 4 | eBay

Just a thought and my $0.02
