Tippman 98 barely shoots and bolt will not return to cocked position

I have cleaned gun inside and out. I have a full tank, no leaks, velocity is turned up. It shoots about 30 feet and only one shot at a time. I have to pull bolt back each time. What next?

Check the O rings on the big metal striker, make sure that you have the spring on the back (where the stock would have went) in the right hole on the back plate. Make sure that your velocity is set to a reasonable level.

SOURCE: i added a stock to my tippman 98 custom and it

Check and make sure that it's secured properly and that the spring is seated correctly in the back.

Make sure it's clean and lubed with a quality oil made for paintball.

If neither of those is the culprit keep trying to use it. The feel will definitely be a little different and it may just "seem" like it's not the same gun, because it's not. Some players like a stock, and some not, and some don't know until they've tried one. Practice with it for a while and see if you're view changes (assuming the above isn't an issue).

If you decide it has problems, check out your local airsmith and make sure everything else is in good shape.

Good luck!

Paintballs keep blowing up in my tippmann 98 custom HELP!


it could be a combination of a number of things.. most likely it has to do with the type of paint you're shooting; in regards to shell.. tippman guns are harder on paint therefore require a harder shell paint, also not all paintballs are exactly .68 caliber, meaning some a bigger and some are smaller.. could be that they're slightly to big for the bore of you barrell

Tippman A-5 with low pressure kit, e-grip. When pull the trigger gun shoots fully auto until I manually stop it by re cocking the gun.


Sounds like the gun needs lube. Oil it and try again. 2-3 drops of oil in the hole
where the tank screws on then put the tank back on. Fire it and see how it does.
I havent heard of a low pressure kit for the A-5 but I think it is a waste. There is a rule
with pressure and paintball guns. Low pressure=high volume of air used.
Standard pressure=regular volume. I have 2 a-5's with e-grips and flatlines.
I polished the internals by sanding the bore of the tube (use fine sandpapaer) and
this makes the velocity very consistent.
One thing that comes to mind is that the hammer may not be getting caught on the
trigger latch. Makes sure your gun is assembled correctly. here is your manual.

First time user I just got a tippman marker and doesnt look like the C)2 is working? Is there something that needs to be done to get to work out of the box?


this is gonna kinda sound dumb. but did you remember to pull the cocking handle back after you put on your tank? and is your tank screwed on tight?

I fire the gun and it doesnt wanna stay cocked i have to **** it every time i wanna fir


One.. dirty...

Two.. no lube/wrong lube...

Three.. no air...

or any combination of the above. Make sure you have a full tank, clean the marker and use paintball-specific oil to lube the internals. The 98 is a very dependable marker and I'm sure once you have the basics down you'll find it very reliable.

Good luck!

Paintball gun is rapid firing when trigger is pressed. CO2bottle is full and i have tried other bottles but stillth same.


Tippmanns are known for their reliability and are very simple markers making them very easy to repair. you need oil from a local paintball shop or regular sewing machine oil will do.

On one side of the marker there is a little "handle" for cocking the gun, pull that handle as far back as you can and you will see 1 o-ring. put 2 drops of oil on it and fire it a couple times without paintballs to test it. This solves the problem 9/10 for tippmanns, if not..

Sometimes paintballs can break inside your gun. Look and feel inside your breech (where the paintballs go into the gun) and check for paint. If its dirty this can be causing your problem, strip it down and clean it (refer to your manual if you have difficulty)

Cannot adjust velocity


Please see below page 8 for picture of what I am talking about.

On page 8 in the middle left side is a picture of the internal vale parts.

When you pull the valve out on the back side is a little o ring that can be taken out using an o ring pick. Make sure to watch the way the parts come out and look for any rust, also broken o rings if the valve is stuck open this will allow the maximum of air to pass. Most of time is this part that is messed up. You can by the valve in one unit this is the best option.

But the first thing is to check the valve and all the parts. Lube it up and re install it.
