If its a 98 custom, you need an e-bolt, not an "e-trigger." Flatlines are nice barrels but are picky on paint and are TOO expensive. The sniper barrels are OK, but I'd suggest a 14" J+J or CP one piece barrel.

All Model 98s have the same threads, so yes, it will work on your 98c.

They are allowed at most fields, but you should check with your field before you spend the money on one. (RT's that is). You also need an electronic hopper if you are getting one, if you don't already have one i suggest a revvy or empire reloader.

FLATLINES SUCK I had one and got rid of it because even when clean it would go 5o feet than make a sharp turn.

Do I lose alot of quality if I go with the j&j ceramic instead? What is the downsides of the j&j ceramic and the upsides.

So im asumeing flatline would be best for rang with tippmann but what is something that would still add good range while not being to high priced. Im makeing sure that I know exactly what I want before I buy my tippmann and accesories very soon. Im gonna be going next month of first camping and so I want to have a gun by then to be able to play with my friend.

I'd get a Lapco Bigshot.. Super awesome barrel if you don't mind it a little loud. 14". Checked out my friends CP and J$J. Nice barrels but the Lapco is like a mirror inside. They are just shiny.

Bigshots aren't just for "big paint" LOL! They're .689 bore so they are the average paint size.

Well i just got a J&J ceramic 14" on saturday played a game with it on sunday and it was very accurate and was'nt that bad of range. Well i do have a expansion chamber on so that increases the range to but it work's well i would reccomend it to anybody. Alot of my friend's have empire twister barrel's on their gun's and my barrel was shooting just as good if not better. Im not sure wich is quiter because ive never heard the other barrel shoot off before.

An expansion chamber doesn't add range. Do you even know what it does?

I'm guessing hes not to sure. All an expansion chamber is, is a hollow tube that gives the C02 gas room to expand from its liquid form into gas form. It dosn't prevent liquid C02 from entering the gun but it greatly reduces the amout. They have this upgrade becouse gas C02 works more effectivly and eficently (sp) in your marking giving you more shots per tank and possibly better accuracy then liquid.

It could possibly help with range becouse the gas C02 will probbly blow the paintball farther then liquid but thats not a garentee.

I'm thinking about buying one becouse on full auto my 98 starts shoting liquid.
