Here Are The Most Effective Tippmann 98 Custom Upgrades...

Tippmann 98 Custom upgrades are very popular for owners of the "tippy" which is considered to be one of the best all-purpose paintball markers on the market.

In fact, the name Tippmann 98 is practically synonymous with upgrades in the paintball industry. This is because the Tippmann company manufactures many different Tippmann Custom 98 parts and accessories that can be added one by one to enhance the functionality of your gun.

The Tippmann 98 Custom paintball marker is a semi-automatic gun with a front fore-grip, a removable elbow and a built-in sight rail. The most common of the Tippmann 98 custom upgrades is a Tippmann Flatline barrel...

This is because the stock barrel of the gun causes your shot to lose accuracy at around 85 feet. The flatline barrel is curved in appearance, and the inside has a course texture that sends the paintball into a backspin on discharge. This backspin causes the paintball to fly flat and straight instead of in a curve.

Plus, if you tilt your gun 90 degrees you the back spin will make it arc to the left or right depending on which way you turn it. This can be very helpful for aiming and playing in obstructed areas such as forests, where the trunks of trees can make it impossible to "arc" your shot.

In addition the flatline barrel can add about 100 feet to your accurate shooting range, which is normally only 85 feet.

There are also many Tippmann 98 parts and accessories that can be used to upgrade this durable and reliable paintball marker.

The most common Tippmann 98 accessories and Tippmann 98 Custom upgrades are double triggers...

...And response triggers. Response triggers are used to create rapid fire. A response trigger allows you to fire faster with minimal effort. All you have to do is apply constant pressure to the trigger to produce a series of rapid-fire shots....

There is no trigger lag time because the response trigger is automatic. Response triggers are a much more expensive Tippmann 98 custom upgrade than a double trigger. One advantage of upgrading to a double trigger system is that it allows a player to get a better feel for the timing of the shot.

A double trigger Tippmann 98 custom upgrade reduces the time it takes to fire each paintball.

Another popular Tippmann 98 custom upgrade is to keep the stock trigger, (the one that came with the gun) and add Tippmann 98 custom parts and accessories to transform it into a sniper rifle.

A drop forward is a Tippmann 98 accessory that allows an air tank to be positioned lower and nearer the front of the gun...

This accessory is called a drop forward simply because it puts more weight beneath the barrel. This not only makes the gun more compact but it also helps balance the weight distribution if you are using heavier air tanks.

The Tippmann A5 is easily the most versatile and easiest to operate of all paintball markers. It is especially recommended for use by beginners who can familiarize themselves with the various Tippmann A5 custom parts and accessories as they become more experienced at playing the game.
