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.
With the screw the hooks in from the outside. just play around with it until you can get it to reset easily
I believe it is a5/x7 threaded.
There are a lot of paintball gun styles, often they are just Tippmann A5's with custom shrouds. In AirSoft however, they create replica guns designed for AirSoft, which is very similar to Paintball.
all paintball guns shoot 260 to 300 fps.
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.
