It really depends on the field operators, a lot of them have a 16 years minimum age limit, however there are some that allow younger players around the ages of 12 - 16 supervised by parents.

How to set velocity on tippnan 98 custom


There is a velocity adjuster on the left side of the body, just below and to the right of the "N" in "TIPPMANN."

In order to adjust the velocity you need to be in a place where it is safe and legal to fire your marker (paintball field, with all bystanders protected by netting or paintball goggles.) You will need a chronograph and a 3/16-inch hex wrench.

The adjuster is a screw that blocks the gas flow from the valve to the bolt. If you screw it in (clockwise) it blocks more of the gas, so your velocity goes down. If you screw it out (anti-clockwise) it blocks less gas, so the velocity goes up.

Just take a shot over the chronograph to check your velocity, adjust and check again until you get it where you want it. Most paintball fields limit velocity to 285 feet per second. Never go above 300 feet per second, as velocities above that are unsafe (beyond paintball goggle ratings and can cause damage and infection on skin due to the heavy impact.)

It is important to test and adjust the velocity before each day of play, and even multiple times during the day as weather changes, because it is affected by temperature.

If a player gets hit with a paintball that doesn't break, is he still out?


In most paintball games and tournament play, a paintball impact but non-break is non-elimination. It is good sportsmanship to call out "bounced" or "didn't break" if he/she is hit but does not receive paintball splatter.

I am trying to use the 98 custom for the first time. Is all I need to do is screw in the canister and then fire?


Yup.. ultimately that's all you have to do. There's no setup other than that, but to play you really want to use a chronograph to check the speed of the paintball. That is adjustable and the staff at your nearest paintball store or field can certainly line you up properly.

Good luck!

When i screw my tank on the CO2 goes right through the gun and out the barrel


**** it and that should stop.

If that persists make sure you have cleaned the marker and used a good paintball oil to lubricate the internals.

At the next level you could have a o-ring that's old, brittle, broken and now is leaking by. Your local airsmith should be able to provide the necessary part(s) or fix it in short order for you.

Good luck!

Do I have to take the gun apart to get the battery in the gun??? and also before i was done with the gun my brother put the paintballs in the hopper but for some reason they were falling out of the...


No, you didn't do anything wrong...

Paintballs come in a variety of sizes. That difference is very hard to see with the naked eye, but your barrel knows what fits and what doesn't. Players have a choice in barrels and ID-internal dimensions, so the balls are various sizes as well. You will have to sample a few brands and see what works best for you.

Good luck!

I have a semi auto alpha black. When im firing on semi auto sometime the gun switches quickly to fully auto and releases lots of CO2 without really shooting any paintballs


Does this only happen when you're low on air? Also, make sure you're using a good paintball oil for lubrication and make sure the marker is clean. It's possible for an o-ring to leak, or once it gets cold to leak, so make sure you use the proper o-ring for the proper location (lots of them look alike so keep them labeled and bagged separately).

Good luck!

My Tippmann 98 Custom ACT will not fire higher than 190 fps regardless of how I adjust my velocity screw. Do I need a new power tube set up?


Well, the power tube probably isn't the problem. I'd make sure your marker is clean, and lubed with a good oil made for paintball.

Next, inspect the spring. Any kind of kink or damage will affect performance.

Also, make sure you're testing it with a full tank.. don't let low air pressure skew your diagnostics.

Good luck!

Air leakage from paintball gun around the barrel area


My first suggestion is to make sure your marker is clean, and properly lubed with a quality oil made for paintball.

Next would be to make sure you're checking with a full tank of air.

If lubing the marker doesn't fix you up, does it quit if you **** the marker? Not a condition you wanna walk around the staging area with, but it may stop the leak.

It can be an o-ring, and if it's been a while since you had any o-rings changed, it may be high time to get a set and change 'em all out, then you know they're all good to go!

Good luck!

98 Custom Act Paintball Gun: i want it to go fasteer...


I can take that a couple of ways. Do you mean you want to fire more balls per second or you want the paintballs themselves to fly faster?

If you want to fire faster, make sure it's clean and properly lubed with a quality oil that made for paintball. Practice makes perfect and fire that ****** as often as you can, even without paint (that's cheaper!) so you can get your trigger finger in shape.

There are custom mods to the trigger, or you can buy a trigger that's smoother or a shorter pull. There are electronic trigger assemblies that make firing faster even easier.

If you're talking about making the balls fly out of the gun faster, that would be the "velocity adjustment". Your user guide shows you how to make that adjustment and which direction is up, and which is down.

A good suggestion is to check out a local field or paintball store, or an airsmith and they can give you some definite ideas you will want to pursue.

Good luck!

Paintball gun problem


First off, make sure it's clean, and lubed with a quality oil made for paintball.

If you're sure the o-rings are good (as in relatively new) it's pretty hard to tell just from looking as it doesn't take a lot of damage to leak air.

Try a different tank, just to be sure. Make sure it's full.

**** it. If that stops it there's a clue.

If it's had some use it's possible to have a bad/weak spring and the valve isn't closing entirely. Make sure your velocity is less then 300fps.

Check out your local airsmith or field and they should be able to get you squared away if none of that helps.

Good luck!
