No, they will not both fit unless you have it custom fitted.
Dennis Tippmann is the founder of Tippmann paintball.
Yes, as long as it has two holes for the banjo hoses.
No. The trigger assembly for the a5 is set up very different from the 98 custom.
I believe it is a5/x7 threaded.
Yes all 98's are interchangeable no matter the model. But if you haven't taken apart a paintball gun before it could cause problems. When i was putting a new trigger in my 98 the second i lifted one half off about 3 springs shot off. I had to get my owners manual and look to see where all the springs went. Took about 15 minutes longer than it should have. But was worth it in the end.
I am the captain of the Bullit Paintball team.Without the tank attached, my custom Tippmann A5 weighs between 3-5 pounds.
There are two things that can cause this: 1. The spring that resets the trigger is worn or is otherwise malfunctioning. 2. There is dirt or paint between the trigger and the inside of the gun, gumming it up. If you know how, take apart and clean your gun thoroughly. If not, take it to a paintball field or shop and have someone show you how.
They are both around the same performance. The J&J may be slightly better, being ceramic.
The question is not which is better, but rather what your preferance is. The etrigger will allow you to adjust your rate of fir (ie. semi-auto, full auto, and 3 round burst). Where as the response trigger uses air to push the trigger forward after it has been pulled back. Therefore, in essence if you find the "sweet spot" you will have the trigger bounce of your finger and give you simulated full auto. The drawback is no control over the rate of fire. The advantage is that it has no electronics or batteries. So, again its your personal prefferance.
The best type of paintball for the 98 series is a mid grade paint (anything around 60 dollars like Diablo All Star). As for any gun, you don't want to just buy the cheapest paint possible (monster balls) because of the poor consistency and tendency to bounce after impact, but too high quality paint (easily breakable) in a Tippmann will chop a lot of paint.
Not all of them. Paintball guns come in: Pump- which requires a handle to be pumped before a shot can be taken Semi-automatic- one trigger pull equals one shot burst- uses electronics to make every trigger pull multiple shots. ramping- must pull the trigger so many times to enter a fully automatic, higher rate of fire mode Fully automatic- holding down the trigger will keep shooting.
