Tippmann Pro-Lite/Carbine/Pro-Carbine forearm questions
Couple questions for those that know:
1. Will a Pro/Lite forearm/feedneck fit a .68 Carbine?
2. Will a Pro/Carbine forearm fit a .68 Carbine?
3. Apart from the forearm, what differences are there between a .68 Carbine and a Pro/Carbine?

1. Not without modification.
2. Pro/Carbine and Pro-Lite forearms are the same.
3. The rail on top of the body is longer on the 68 Carbine. The 68 Carbine's feedneck clamps on to the rail. The Pro/Carbine has the rail ground off near the feed port to allow the forearm to slide on. This would likely be the easiest way to modify the 68 Carbine to accept a forearm. Some early 68 Carbines came with the floating dual-pin valve like the Pro-Lite and earlier Tippmanns. Tippmann offered a conversion to the CVX valve which came on all but the earliest Carbines. The Pro/Carbine also has a slight cut out near the feed port to allow the forearm to be slide forward while there is paint in the hopper without cutting a ball.
This shows a 68 Carbine and a Pro-Lite. Notice the rail on the 68 Carbine (shown without its feedneck) extends almost to the front whereas the Pro-Lite's ends before the forearm/feedneck.
