Honestly it might be easier to find a cheap aluminum AR-15 handguard and instead 3d print a mounting base to put it on your Tippmann 98.
Seconded. Quad rails used (and new) are super cheap, and much less hassle than that print. If i were to do it, I'd probably print the rails as separate pieces and epoxy on to the tube.
