SOURCE: 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!

Play hard, play safe, play with honor!

SOURCE: my alpha black paintball gun is shooting 1 to 5 then stopping.

Sounds like it needs to be oiled. A couple of drops in the small hole where your bottle screws on.
Replace bottle and dry fire to see if you got it. Cleaning is just as important. Internals need to be cleaned
and lubed often. I know it's late but hope it helps someone.

SOURCE: the paintballs just fall straigt

The part that is bad Tippmann calls a "ball latch". It's a small orange rubber part that keeps the ball in place before the marker is fired. The parts is inexpensive it is common in most paintball stores or can be found online at www.tippmannparts.com



I highly recommend taking this paintball marker to a local pro shop to have the part replaced. You can service this marker at home but is not easy to put together if you have experience working on then, they have a few springs under tention that make it tough to put back together. If you are interested in doing the repair yourself I highly recommend doing it on on a clean floor in a clean room so when you disassemble it it will be easier to find the springs that could shoot out.


One thing that will make it easier is to leave the feedneck on. It will keep one less spring from jumping out at you, just a tip from a pro. I also highly recommend not using a spray lubricant and to only use oils in you tippmann made for paintball guns.

Paintball gun


Paintball guns that are semi-automatic are generally more reliable and rugged than their electronic counterparts as they have a smaller number of moving parts. They are particularly preferred by beginner and intermediate level players who are discovering how to play the game, relying on a reliable gun rather than player skills. To get the guidance you may look on to Paintball Gun Buying Guide.

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

I have a tippmann custom pro with a cyclone feeder. I recently got the SAW stock to put on it and encountered some problems many times after I reassembled the gun. I took it apart at least 5 times before...


Hi there. Tippmann markers are super tough to make sure that they are put back together properly. The stupid clamshell design plus all the little, under engineered parts make it difficult to get it back together properly, especially after installing a stock. I was in the paintball industry for 10 years but have been out of it for a little bit, but i was one of the founding members of Uprising Nation and was a gunsmith/ salesman for PaintballOnline.com / Xtremes. Now with that said...I even had trouble with the tippmann 98's...and I can rebuild an autococker with my eyes closed but can sometimes be stumped by the tippy's bad design. It is really tough to diagnose an issue on these guns without looking at it. You may have the ball detent backwards,l missing a pin, sometimes the after market stocks on those are a little too large on the outside diameter preventing the internals from properly seating. The cycloce system may be off due to the valves not meing properly aligned or the connecting rod not being in all the way. Many times though it is incorrect installation of the detent or the deternt gets damages. That little orange peice of **** flap is a mance. I would start there.

It may seem like i am bashing your gun. Im not... Once they are put together properly they work great. Just DONT TAKE THEM APART. lol. If you buy the parts at a local gun shop they will install them for free.

lol I have 6 guns for sale :)


Have a good day

When i put my paintballs in the gun and i aim down they fall out the top where they shoot from


Sound like your ball detent is gone or broken.

The detent is a tiny piece of rubber that keeps the paintballs in the chamber and from rolling out the barrel. It's a cheap part, but you will need basic knowledge of disassembling a Tippmann 98 to replace it.

You can find ball detents here!

I bought a tippman stock for my carver one but im not sure how to put it on?


In order to use you gun you will need 3 basic things. First, you need to have your hopper with paintballs in it, second you will need a CO2 bottle to propel the paintballs, and finally **** the gun on the side have the gun in the ready position. There are some security measures to be followed like having a paintball mask for facial protection and to handle it as loaded weapon at all times since it can harm a person if not handled carefully.

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)

How to remove a responce trigger from tippman a5 paintball gun


To remove the response trigger you need to first remove the grip frame. Remove the piston and replace the fitting that supplies air to the piston with a plug. you can find this at any local paintball store or online at www.badlandspaintball.com. If you can't find this plug than you can leave it open as it is not under pressure all the time only when the marker is fired, you will waste air this way. Good luck
