Not much to go on there... Here's some general guidelines for ya:

Make sure your marker is properly clean and lubed with a quality oil made for paintball use.

Make sure you have a full tank of air.

Make sure the safety pin isn't engaged.

If you can **** it and it doesn't fire and cycle when you pull the trigger you may have a stuck valve or you pin depressor isn't long enough or the valve on the tank is low.

If the basics above don't get you going, checkout your local airsmith or paintball store and see if they can't get you pointed in the right direction.

Good luck!

My paintball wont stop shooting but it has nothing to do with the co2 tank help?


The sear is not catching the bolt and resetting it properly. Or, there is not enough air pressure to push the bolt back to its original position. I would take it to a gunsmith. Parts fly out of a Tippmann if you open it up.

Depending on which fuses are blowing, you may have shorted a wire in the harness to the fuel tank.

I have a used custom 98 ACT platinum. When i fire it , it goes full auto. My speed is at 270 fps.What do i do?


Buy a oil for a few dollars made specifically for paintball. Put a few drops in the ASA(where the tank screws in) screw the tank in and try to fire it about 10 times. If the gun still goes FA or sputters, I highly recommend having it serviced by a local pro shop or Tippmann.

Just bought a tippmann 98 act took it home went to test and it still broke like everyother ball. Is it the balls or possibily to much veloicity? does it make a difference co2 or compressed air?


The velocity adjustment is probably way too high.
This causes too much propellant to enter the firing chamber.
There should be an Allen screw on the side of the gun where
you can adjust the velocity. Try backing the screw out a turn and see what happens.
Here is your owners manual to help you.

CO2 is very hard on O-rings so if you can use air you are better off.
I use an A-5, Autocockers, Smart Parts Ions and more.

I was playing today and my 98 custom just started leaking CO2 from all the cracks it froze up and ice started coming out of the barrel. what happened and how can i fix it??


your tank loosened up, the co2 freezes the rubber seals they will have to be replaced, you can order a repair kit from the website, change out all the rubber seals on the gun and your co2 tank

I attempted to put a car stock on my Tippmann 98 custom and took apart the gun but the stock didnt fit, now when i put it back together and shot it with my tank connected the gun wont stay cocked and...


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.

98 Custom Act Paintball Gun: i have just brought a 98 tippmann custom and it ha...


Basically speaking, air is air. Now it's the pressure that's the concern. co2 bottles use a regular valve that has a pin in it and opens to allow the gas through. High Pressure Air - HPA is the same concept but since the pressure with co2 is built up by expanding gas, HPA has to do it with pressure only. So the tank is pressurized a LOT higher than co2, but there's a regulator on the tank valve to bring the working pressure into the marker to the proper level.

So yes, you can use "air", but you need to make sure it has the right output for your marker. (i.e. not a low pressure HPA valve.).

You'll have the same problem though, getting someone to fill the bottle. Check with your local airsmith and paintball fields and stores. If they have co2 they would have HPA, but some do only deal with HPA since it's "easier" in some cases.

You may have to check around. Sometimes hardware stores have a small section in back, or you can check with the paintball places around to see if anyone in your area is equipped. Some teams have their own tanks, especially if there's not a place to get fills locally.

There's also online communities like Brigade and various paintball sites where you can check around for other players. Someone may have a co2 fill tank, a scuba tank for HPA, or a group that gets tanks together to make a run and get them filled somewhere.

Good luck!

In cold weather it wont fire, it acts like its running out of co2 it goes full auto.


make sure you replace all of the internal o-rings for commpression. one may be worn slightly and contracts when cold allowing gas to escape
