Purchasing Spare 98c Parts?

Hey all.

After paintballing this past weekend I put my new ricochet LED hopper on my gun to see how it looked, and I noticed a slight wobble from the feed elbow. I then noticed that one of my elbow pins were missing. As far as I know (which I really don't) it won't affect performance, but I'd rather have it be sturdy and not wobble. Can I buy a replacement part anywhere? I'm thinking that the tippmann site, if anyplace, would have it, but I didn't spot it when I looked. Thanks in advance.

You can contact tippmann, and tell them what went wrong, somtimes they will send it too you for free. Or they used to, I don't know if they still do, but you could give it a try.

To buy parts www.tippmannparts.com , to cure the wobble put a tank o-ring around the neck just above the pins.

WTF

The hopper wobble oring mod is probably simplest and best tippy mod.

I didn't have an extra oring, so I put a couple layers of tape between the feedneck and the body and it elimated all wobble. It is just as easy as the oring mod and is just as effective.
