My Woodsball 98c

Ok my current setup is:

98 custom responce
Rcht. Apache
Pure energy 20 oz.
Dye Proto Switch Model EL


Upgrades I am considering:

J&J ceramic 14"
V-Force vantage Field Vision
X chamber kit
CP 2" flame drop foward
PMI Rufus Dawg Bolt

As you can see, I have speed (RT w/ Apache) and now I'm consentrating on accuracy. I am on a budget, and was wondering what I can get the best bang for my buck. Thanks.

J&J will give you a nice barrel for a nice price.

not sure if the botl is worth upgrading though. (i'd say stay with whatever you got now, even if it's stock)

I wouldn't get the bolt either if you're even slightly thinking about money.

Def. get the barrel. An expansion chamber would be good too. I like drops but some people will tell you not to get one. But get one if its comfy for you. IMO, don't get the bolt.

Ok, thanks. The people on Tippmann Forums told me not to get the x chamber and get a palmers, but those are out of my price range.

They do have a point, if you can afford a stabilizer the performance is well above an expansion chamber.

You might consider getting thermal lenses for your Switch instead of getting another mask as well, assuming it fits well and everything.

I do love my mask, but it just fogs up so bad at times I can barely see past my gun.

Oh, I found an X-chamber kit for $50 and a male palmers for $88. Is it worth it?

Thermal lenses would cure the fogging pretty well.

If you buy the stabilizer you have to add the cost of the Tippmann vertical adaptor onto it and you'll probably need some new air line as well. Macroline and fittings (a kit) would work well, or a steel line would be more durable.

If you were to find a female stabilizer you wouldn't need the vertical adaptor. These ones mount on the bottom of the grip where the tank screws in, replacing the stock ASA that is there.

Bob Long's Torpedo regulators also tolerate CO2 well. They're also cheaper in price and turn up fairly often as used equipment that's even cheaper to buy. It's what I'm using now, downgraded from a stabilizer....needed it for another gun.

I still don't know. The X-chamber is alot cheaper and from the sounds of it easier to install. I'm really on a budget, so thata the route I think I'm going to take, thanks.

If you can I would get an anti-siphon over the xchamber. But it's hard to find places to install an anti-siphon tube.

Buy a nice mask, a nice HPA tank, and a nice hopper.

Then sell your gun and get a new one.

Best adviceI can offer you.

Yeah, I'm just saying dont get upgrades like bolts, and kits that only work on a tippy. Barrel at most.

Just get stuff you can put on another ugn if you need to

Instead of getting an x chamber start saving for a HPA tank. Also get a good barrel. Any aftermarket barrel would be an improvement over the stock one. I recommend the J&J ceramic. Making your own dropforward is also quite easy to do with a piece of steel purchaced from lowes or home depot, since you are on a budget. A new bolt would be a complete waste of money. But first and foremost, get a thermal lens for your mask so you can see your opponents. A good lens makes all the difference in the world between a good day of PB and a bad one.
