Guess I'll go hunting. Love how basic the 98s are, the marker didn't break on me till about 7 years after I bought it.

Try CL, too. Around here, it's LOADED with Tippmanns people are trying to unload. They all seem to think that their guns are worth retail, but someone will sell you one for $45, I guarantee it.

probably having issues with the hammer sliding into the rear of the power tube, if the tolerances are off, this will cause binding. Did you re-build your valve while in there ? Two orings and a cup seal, easy fix, for best results, lube orings prior to installing.

It does look like the hammer does strike the bottom of the power tube. What's a good way to fix this?

Aftermarket metal powertubes are hit and miss. Like DamoNAN said, the friction where the bolt enters the tube is likely causing your blowback and inconsistency issues. Call/Email Tippmann and let them know your original Powertube busted and they'll usually send you a new one at no charge. If it fixes your issue, case closed.

I see. but would they really send me a new power tube? I bought the marker in 01. They're not that expensive either. I'm gunna see if I can do some modifications to make it better. We'll see how it goes =P
