My Tippmann 98 Project-Final Product

Got this gun in March of 2011 as a used rental gun. Only upgrade was the vertical air kit. I was initially going to sell it for a small profit because I bought it cheap. Well, I played with it and nostalgia set it because my first gun was a tippmann model 98. :p

Decided that I wanted to have it as a fast gun, so when I found a box of tippmann parts LNIB for $10, I jumped on it. Response trigger and some replacement springs and like 10 rebuild kits. Good price!

Got home and this thing RIPPED!!!!

I didn't like the stock ASA, so I put a nice CP on/off ASA on it and converted it over to macroline hose. The ASA is currently leaking out of everywhere, but I've just gotta rebuild it I think.

After all this, the barrel just sucked. Lapco Apex Ready BigShot that I got from a friend at a scenario game this summer :drool:(Apex tip isn't in the photo)

I fell in love with it even more and decided I wanted to pretty it up because it WAS a rental gun and a lot of the paint was chipping off. Hand sanded and polished one side of the gun. Took two more months for the other side. Didn't end up liking that so I painted it blue last night.

Also did the oring feedneck mod, and hand polished the internals.

So far, I love the way this gun shoots. Really, really smooth for a tippmann too.

Thought I'd share :)

everyone who started out with a tippman, decides to doll it up. mine was very similar. i had a gas thru grip, a huge drop, i smoothed the body/ filled the cocking slot and made it top cocking. and gave it a neon purple finish with sparkle coat. its currently missing its bottom half gutted and sanded bare. waiting to be droped into a stock. been this way for 4 years :(

That looks nice.

It's a nice, tight playing woodsball gun. It doesn't get much use because I have my SP-1 which is just much more practical, and it saves my arms, but I do enjoy this gun a LOT.

Nice work! I'm really digging the Lapco barrel, looks good.

Kermit 08-22-2011 10:22 AM

Thanks! Lapco makes one heck of a barrel!

Looks fun.

planning on upgrading it anymore just for the heck of it?

I want a palmers stab for her, it's my Co2 gun and palmers and Co2 are like pretzels and chocolate.

What about some tech-t goodness.
The hair pin trigger kit with rt would be pretty cool and would increase bps when rt'ing i think.

I figured you polished the internals already.
