Tippmann 98 Custom

The Tippmann 98 Custom is one of the company’s most popular and reliable woodsball and scenario paintball markers. Its sleek look, high power and reliable performance make it an aggressive choice in paintball guns. Tippmann has made the 98 Custom exceptionally useful stock marker with plenty of options for modification and personalization.

The strengths of the original Tippman 98 are continued in the excellent 98 Custom core marker system. The aluminum die cast receiver feels durable without being too heavy. To service the 98 Custom, Tippmann constructed the body with a centerline split that is easily accessed by removing six Allen wrench screws and bolts. The 98 Custom features a removable trigger guard that was previously part of the original’s casing, which enables the simple upgrade to a responsive trigger. Small pins are used internally to ensure consistent alignment for true firing action. Aligning the pins can be a slightly tedious process, but with practice the procedure becomes intuitive. Another advantage to the aluminum die cast chassis is the ability to use simple aluminum polish on the inside of the receiver housing to ensure a near frictionless movement if one chooses to modify the 98 Custom to fully automatic.

The self-sealing power tube design helps to make the Tippmann 98 Custom a more efficiently sealed system that is still easily accessed for cleaning and maintenance and will effectively operate on CO2, compressed air, or nitrogen. The stock guts make this marker a .68 caliber semi-automatic at an eight ball per second firing rate with an effective range of 150 feet. Optional upgrades like the flat-line barrel help to dial in the Tippmann 98 Custom’s long-range accuracy. An anti-chop ball handling system also ensures that this Tippmann can perform worry free at higher firing rates made possible through ball-feed and trigger upgrades.

The beauty of the Tippmann 98 Custom is the wide array of optional upgrades. Its performance and accuracy can be improved though this marker is highly effective, and visually intimidating, out of the box. The stock hopper holds 200 rounds and is attached with a quick release feeder elbow that easily slides out of the way to admit a squeegee should the marker require a fast field cleaning. Tippmann’s inclusion of Picatinny rails allow for the easy attachment of accessories like scopes. The Tippmann 98 Custom is a workhorse of the paintball world.

Paintball guns are becoming more and more specialized as the diversity of game play expands. Many paintball guns on the market today are excellent for use in a particular style of play, which can be limiting because of the high investment cost for a core marker. This is where Tippmann excels beyond the competition with the 98 Custom. Advantages that were limited to other markers like the response triggers and scenario aesthetic modification kits are now all compatible with the Tippmann 98 Custom. The casing and power tube are versatile enough to perform as a speedball or sniper marker when matched with the appropriate Tippmann upgrades.

The Paintball Markers You Forgot About – Pistols

We know the kind of weaponry making heads turn at stores and intriguing eyes on our Ultimate Paintball website.  Sure, the latest and greatest paintball markers by Spyder, Tippmann, and other manufacturers is a site to excite any paintball player, yet lesser known, lesser used markers are valuable as well.  When was the last time you considered supplementing your big gun with pistol paintball markers?

To start, we’d like to encourage use of a pistol as primary paintball markers despite contrary opinions.  Sure, using a pistol has drawbacks including the opportunity to hold less paintballs, less air, and the need for more patience, but there are advantages too.  Sometimes simplicity and skill is all you need to make an impact on the field.  Have you ever caught the look of an opposing player, holding a high-powered gun in hand, finding they just got taken out by a pistol?  It’s a priceless sight!

However, we’re not opposed to progress.  The design and response of markers has come a long way.  There’s a lot of damage to be done with an advanced paintball marker.  Taking a look through our site, you’ll see we definitely encourage the use of high-end guns too.

Using a pistol as a secondary weapon might be the best approach to take.  If you like the idea, consider how fast you can load a particular model along with its size and weight.  Some pistols are pretty elementary in design, taking a long time to reload.  Others are relatively quick to load and worth consideration as a secondary weapon.  Additionally, think practically.  Pistols are smaller than normal, high-end paintball markers but vary in size.  Make sure you can comfortably store the pistol on your person during play and easily aim, letting paintballs fly with one hand.

A pistol comes in the handiest when most needed.  Imagine your ensconced in that crucial moment where it’s either going to be you or your opponent who soon meets their fate.  Your knee deep in exchanging fire and it’s time to reload.  You think, “Damn!  Now they have the advantage.”  And they might know it.  However, if you’re packing an extra paintball marker you don’t have to sacrifice needed seconds.  You can grab the pistol and continue taking those crucial shots.

Do you have additional questions regarding pistols or other types of paintball markers?  We love to hear from current and potential customers!  Shoot us (haha – get it?) an email or give us a call.

Our courteous staff would be more than happy to address your questions.

Use Your Paintball Gun like a Sniper

Your paintball gun may be the deciding factor between victory and defeat.  It’s not just about the size and capability of your gun; you need to know how to use it!  There are a number of styles of play.  Those who love to rack up a number of kills with their paintball gun occasionally adopt a sniper-style of play.  If you want to learn how to be a sniper or enhance your sniper skills, consider the following suggestions.

A sniper sits and waits for opportunities to make a kill.  Aside from an accurate paintball gun, patience is a must regarding this style of play.  If you’re an anxious player who loves to move around, a natural-born sniper you’re not.  It doesn’t mean you can’t be an advantage to your team in other ways; it means you should consider adopting a different role.

Where are you going to sit and wait for enemy targets?  Remember you’re a sniper and not a hider.  Yes, you need to choose a covert position, but not a place so well hidden no one will spot you and you won’t spot them.  Consider making a base adjacent to a well-traveled crossroad or area on the battlefield.  Being stationary, you’ll need the enemy to come to you.

Consider donning camouflaged clothing (we have a number of camouflaged paintball gear items available at our online store!), facilitating your ability to hide from enemies.  You want to blend into your environment rather than standout in a conspicuous fashion.  If you can’t integrate your outline into the surroundings, you’ll become an easy target rather than an enemy-slaying sniper.

What’s the capacity of your paintball gun?  This is an important consideration.  If you’re positioned 100 feet from potential targets, but your gun’s accuracy begins going awry at 70 feet, you’re going to have issues being an efficient marksmen.  Know your gun and its limitations.

Don’t be overly confident.  Listen to your intuition (this usually gets better with the accumulation of play hours).  If you have any reason to believe you’ve been spotted, it’s time to adopt another hiding spot or style of play.  Otherwise, you’re setting yourself up for an unexpected visit by enemy fire.

Don’t get too excited.  Sure, it’s a great feeling knowing you are about to open a can of paintball death on an opposing player, but maintaining a low profile is a major objective of snipers.  Be patient in pulling the trigger.  Optimally, you need only pull the trigger once to make a kill.  The best snipers leave opponents in post-kill wonder, shot yet having no clue where the opposing paintball came.

Keep it quiet.  Like a magician never reveals his secrets, a good sniper never reveals his hiding spots.  Your exact location is only for you and your paintball gun to know!

Find the Right Paintball Gun

Congratulations on starting an exciting new hobby – the game of paintball!  To start, you’ll want to stop renting paintball markers and get your own paintball gun.  A quick search of available markers may confuse a novice.  There are many selections offered to players because styles of play differ.  Consider the description of each kind of paintball gun to better educate yourself about which weapon is best for you.

A pump gun is a common and economically-priced paintball gun.  A player needs to pump the gun before every shot.  Such a need facilitates better accuracy, distance of the shot, and conservation of paintballs.  Possibly your first paintball gun, pump guns have some disadvantages but might be the best decision for a beginner.

Semi-automatic guns are popular with players.  A semi-automatic paintball gun delivers a shot each time the trigger is pulled.  Depending on the model, the trigger may be more or less sensitive.  Much more convenient to get off a shot, there is no need to pump the semi-automatic models to get off that crucial shot.

An automatic paintball gun is great for players with a bit more experience.  An automatic enables a player to get off a great number of paintballs per second, flying at opponents at high speeds.  These are great models for experienced players because a novice may find the lack of accuracy and the constant need to reload a hindrance to play.

Electronic guns are very popular with paintball players.  The paintball gun is really a few guns in one, presenting the ability to take advantage of several firing modes:  single shot, semi-automatic, or automatic.  Of course, these guns don’t come cheap but you know the Ultimate

Paintball site is presenting paintball guns at incredible prices!

If you want a simple but effective paintball gun, a pistol may be the way to go.  Pistols were the first paintball guns, powered by small CO2 cartridges and holding about 10 to 15 balls at a time.  If you have some experience behind you, you may want to think about getting such a paintball gun to use as a backup during play.

Would you like more help in choosing a paintball gun?  We’re here to help you.  Send us an email or give us a call.  Our courteous staff will help you select something perfect for your style of play and experience.  Don’t forget to shop the Ultimate Paintball site on a weekly basis so you don’t miss out on our ongoing cyber deals.

Tips on Buying Paintball Markers

Paintball markers to the game of paintball are like a hockey stick to hockey or a baseball bat to baseball – they’re integral pieces of the game.  That being understood, purchasing paintball markers warrants some premeditation.  Sure, any gun would do, yet your style of play along with other factors should make an impact on your final decision.  Consider the following tips.

To start, where are you considering purchasing paintball markers of interest?  Be careful of retailers offering high prices and cheap equipment.  Do some shopping on and offline, taking note of popular manufacturers and general prices associated.  Lucky for you, the Ultimate Paintball site offers a large selection of leading paintball markers from the most respected manufacturers associated with the sport!  We offer our customers ongoing deals in conjunction with weekly cyber deals!

Next, consider your style of play.  If you’re a complete novice, think about renting guns rather than immediately buying paintball markers.  Give yourself some time to develop a sense of the game and your individual style of play.  After some time, you may desire a gun that is most aligned with the way you enjoy playing the game.

For instance, if you’re highly offensive, you’ll want a gun with a rapid rate of fire and a light trigger.  On the other hand, you may be a patient player, one described as a “sniper,” waiting for the precise moment to take a shot. In this case, you’ll want paintball markers offering high precision.  Snipers sometimes purchase pump guns.  The guns have a closed bolt system, allowing for an even distribution of airflow.

Talk to members of our courteous staff or other players.  Those with more experience can offer insight regarding your style of play and what paintball markers work best with that particular style.

In addition to your style of play, consider some other factors before making a gun purchase such as upgradability, comfort, and the manufacturer.  Rather than continuously evolving and buying guns to match your experience, think about purchasing a gun with upgrade capabilities to start.  You can save yourself a lot of money down the road that way.  Don’t disregard your level of comfort.  If your gun is not comfortable to tote and shoot, you’re going to be at a disadvantage.  The Ultimate Paintball site offers all the leading manufacturers in the game.  If you see it featured on our site, you know it’s a well-respected product.

Think before you Purchase a Paintball Marker

The game of paintball is addictive. Whether you were excited or apprehensive about your first time, chances are you immediately loved the feeling of a paintball marker in your hand and your opponents in your sights.  Regular players enjoy owning their own equipment rather than renting.  Consider the following information before purchasing a paintball marker (or “gun” if you’re a complete novice to the sport).

To begin, be realistic regarding how much you’re projecting to play the game.  Are you going to play once a month, once a week, several times a week, etc?  Of course, your equipment influences how well you play the game.  You can get away with purchasing a basic paintball marker, yet such a purchase may be disadvantageous to you when you’re up against foes with superior weapons.  If you’re going to play once a week or more, then it may be a wise decision to take a look at high-end guns.

Of course, you have to consider how much you want to invest.  Lucky for you, you came across this post and now know about our Ultimate Paintball site, offering ongoing deals on high-end paintball markers and other equipment.  Do some comparison shopping across the Web; you’ll find we offer incredible prices.  Obviously, better equipment costs more.  If you’d like, refer to our contact information and speak to one of our representatives about available selections.

What kind of games do you intend to play?  If you’re playing leisurely, mildly-intense games with friends, a basic paintball marker may suffice.  If you want to compete on a team or in a long-standing scenario game, you probably want a paintball marker that offers more power, precision, and extras.  We have it all here; get a basic gun or make a purchase with all the wanted “bells and whistles” that would make any paintball player very pleased.

If you’re first starting out and on a budget, consider other equipment you may immediately need, including protective gear.  Paintball is an intense sport.  Injuries can easily occur if the right precautions are not taken.  Peruse our site to find all the gear and equipment needed to play any style of game.  We offer great deals on all merchandise.  Depending on your budget, you may be able to get everything you need for less than you expected!  Aren’t you glad you found the Ultimate Paintball site?!
