My Tippman 98 Custom Platinum series
Ok, I dont have any pics up, yet, I will get them uploaded to photo bucket soon and get the links on here.
I'm gonna list all the stuff I got one my gun, and what I plan to put on, and I would like you guys to suggest anything else that you think I should add onto the gun to help its performance.
When I started with this gun my main idea was to get it into a marker that would be very accurate and consistent, and hopefully be able to out-range other markers, I know I cannot make it into a true 'sniper' rifle, but I'm gonna try to make it the most consistent and accurate I can get it so I can hopefully do a little better than other people who I play woodsball with.
Right now I have this setup:
Marker: standard Tippman 98 Custom Platinum series, no e-trigger or anything.
Barrel: cannot remember exactly what its called because the site i ordered it from went out of business, but they called it a 'recon' barrel, its rifled, oh and its 18". And i have the 1st Apex with an adapter on it.
Air system: Remote coil with quick disconnect
Hopper: standard Wal-Mart 200 rd gravity hopper
This is what i plan to do/add:
Air system: Lapco gas expansion chamber
Trigger: Double trigger, the Fang trigger, may do the clicky pen spring mod to make it easier to use.
Hopper: Cyclone hopper with 50 round tube style hopper *(should be lower profile, I dont spray much and am good at realoads so it should work good, I want a hopper that isn't really easy to see either.
All of these upgrades I am gonna put on are for performance, I want to add a barrel shroud and maybe a stock later on to make it look alot cooler. And I may add some high-rise sights so I can look through them with my mask on. When I get more money and time I may pick up an A-5, and do some of the same things to it, but I will probably use the A-5 as more of an assault rifle because I can get it with a response trigger.
If you guys can think of anything else i should add onto this please comment on this. If you guys like it you can comment on it also. Oh, and tell me your set-up and how you use it, just curious.
I will be updating this as I go along and say what else I have added, and will try to get some pictures up of it as well.
P.S. Sorry for all the reading, but its worth it. And I really cant make it any shorter.
