Tippmann 98 Custom

Hey all, just went paintballing for the first time last night! It was a 12 hour scenario night match at NPF Blacksoil. Now, I had so much fun (though I'm still sore) that I'm going back. But I want to kit up properly next time, one of things i want is a laser unit. A few guys had them and they really helped, they even helped me! So, I was wondering if anyone could tell me the outer barrel dimension of a tippmann 98 custom, cause then I can make up a bracket for my torch, and if anyone can show me where to get a decent laser, a bracket for that as well. I need to know because I don't own a gun and therefore hire NPF's so the bracket will be a quick remove feature.

here's what you od. take a piece of paper and wrap it around the outside of the barrel, then measure that.

See how genius this guy is?!

But yes that will work and is probably the easiest way. And a laser, try to find a dealer that sells good ones on ebay or something is your best bet. I was into lasers and stuff but expensive as hell.

thanks for the reply, my problem is I don't have easy access to the marker. If I did I would've just measured the O.D with verniers. I need someone to tell me the the outside diameter. Also, your method would give me a circumference.

due to a lack of replies...i thought about it and figured out how to do it. I found an image of the 98custom on tippmann's website, and scaled the drawing up. The barrel O.D. is 21mm. Thread closed.
