Finally got my 98C

w00t, i finally got my 98c yesterday,

got co2 filled up and tested out a little at my house balcony..

i couldn't really tell what's up since my balcony was small,
i couldn't even shoot that much, since i was afriad someone might call cops.

the gun was louder than i expected.

I hope I can install 'expansion chamber' and 'double trigger' today.

and hopefully, this weekend,i can shoot around a little..

now i am waiting for RT, and stock and barrel

can't hardly wait.

Get a rocket cock from www.specialopspaintball.com , reviews say that it makes your 98C a tad quieter.

You could also try a Mil-Sim Shadow Cocker. It basically replaces the hammer and back plastic piece to make your 98C a rear cocker. I think it helped mine greatly. Also you should try a new barrel. The do wonders for sound.

Or get away from your house next time.

Makes it a good bit louder being around a solid object like that.

...Because that's not quite possible to install both of them...at the same time.

The rocket cock has a little tab that replaces the bolt handle that is on there now, and it has a cover that goes over the whole thing.

The shadow or any rear cocking system will cock in the rear, by pulling straight back. These also give you a plate to cover the side, because its no longer used.

yeah get the rocket cock. It makes the gun a little bit silenter, and all you do is oull out 2 screws, put on the rockest cock, and put the 2 new screws in. Also a new barel will make it a lot quieter.

Definately.

My team says it's going to be their first upgrade for when they get their 98C's.

I'm guessing you already have a barrel that's ported for the right length? It doesn't quite the hammer down, just the gas coming out of your gun, but you probably already have one (I hope to god you upgraded your barrel), so I'll shush up now .

The only thing worse than a stock barrel is a short stock barrel.

I installed a RT on my 98c and its pretty easy. It comes with instuctions. You will, however, need a set of wrenches to tighten the external RT line and the braided steel air supply line. You will also need a flat head scewdriver. Another thing you will need is a hammer and something to punch out the external line hole on the right side of the gun body (I used a hammer and one of the allen wrenches that came with my gun). Also the valve assembly must come out of the old power tube and be put into the new one. This is kind of tricky to line back up properly but even with trial and error I eventually got it. If you start having a hard time with it just send me a PM and Ill gladly walk you through it.

Talk about tough installs. (Hi, new member here.) I just installed a response trigger on my MODEL 98! Can't be done (except by factory), right? Wrong. It can be done, but you need to be a blaming idiot to try. It took 6 hours, a couple dremel grinding bits, and a bunch of stupidity to do it, but I did it! Actually, it works great.

I know, why didn't I just buy a Custom or Custom pro? My wife got me this gun for Father's day. I guess I'm a softy. Didn't want her to feel bad.

Anyhow, thought you guys would be interest in hearing this. If not, sorry.

I'm too embrassed to show you. It looks pretty rough, but it's completely functional. I should have my gun rated. If there is an inexpensive way to maximize a Model 98, I've found it. Great power and accuracy for such an inexpensive gun.

Actually, when it comes to woods ball, the gun has a lot to do with it, but it's never a replacement for smart playing. We have a guy that still uses a Stingray. Remember those? It's no handicap for him. He's dangerous.

Yeah go with the rocket cock II it does quiet the gun as well as guard your bolt from any dirt or a paintball hitting it which takes a long time to clean out. A good site to get it would be CountryPaintball.com they have good prices at least the best I can find as well as products, Anways goodlucky pballing!
