I just visited Tippmann's site and watched a short video about the 98 Platinum Series. At they mentioned a version without the rear sling clip and picatiny (or whatever the **** that word is) rail. They said it was called the 98 RENTAL. Anyone know where I could find one of these? As we all know, by the time you pull your slinged weapon off your shoulder you're going to be out, and the rail looks queer IMO.

Don't know about them, but I dislike the platinum series. The rail on the top is plastic and held on by two screws. Being a rail, it is a pain to clean paint out of, and if you take it off you have the goofy empty spaces that it used to mount.

We used them as rentals last year.

The rear sling points I was pretty indifferent to. It let us hang them up when needed, but really we just stack them on a shelf when not used.

A version of the marker without these would have been ideal.

My thoughts exactly! I searched and couldn't find any retailer for the rental version though
