Alright , well i have been wanting to make my Tippmann 98 custom look like a nice wooden "sniper rifle". Like a wooden body frame and a wooden butt stock ect. If anyone has done somthing like this , or know's where there is perhaps a tutorial. I would really appreciate it.

Thanks !

the common way to do this is to buy a stock, and then make the marker fit in it. Usually something smaller like a spyder or ion is used, but i'm sure with ehough ambition you can get a tippman into one.

You could probably buy a used Ruger 10/22 stock dirt cheap. This one's plastic but the wood ones are really common because people like to replace the factory stock.

Then you'll want to look at the 98 and start cutting. The front grip will be removed, the rear grip would need removed below the trigger components, and the stock would need some work to make it all fit together and look a little less like something from the Frankenstein shop.

I don't know what kind of work you're comfortable with doing or what kind of tools you can get a hold of, but anythings possible if you really really want to.

However you wanted.

I'd probably bed it with fiberglass resin or some sort of epoxy (with plenty of wax or other release agent) similar to bedding a rifle action. Then make up some sort of bolt-in system to hold it in place. Once you had the stock shaped to nearly the exact shape of the marker (from bedding) it wouldn't take much, probably just one bolt through the bottom.

This project will probably be a lot of work to make it work and look halfway decent.
