Description Technical Specs

The Platinum Series Tippmann 98 Custom paintball gun, with 8 updated features to put you ahead of the game. Tippmann's new 98 Custom Platinum Series is now easier to upgrade, modify and maintain. There is also a new Quick Thread Flatline Barrel, which attaches as easily as any other barrel to save players significant time and effort. The new Platinum Series maintains the core features of the original 98 Custom including, ACT (Anti Chop Technology), all aluminum die cast receiver, and a quick-release feeder elbow. It's fully compatible for CO2, compressed air, or nitrogen.

  • Split receiver design - provides easier access to internal components for simplified installation of accessories and upgrades
  • Easy to remove power tube - self sealing/locking gas line makes cleaning and maintaining your marker quick and easy
  • Full Depth Pockets for ASA - eliminates the need to loosen the ASA bolts when dissassembling the marker
  • Secure Front Site Spring and Trigger Pins - Easier to service and reassemble
  • Matte Finish - Durable matte finish on ASA and barrel reduces reflective glare
  • Picatinny Rails - makes adding carry handles, scopes, or sites a snap

Using a new technology that has the front and rear bolt working independently of each other, ACT virtually eliminates ball chopping and improves ball accuracy with less barrel cleaning. And unlike other anti chop systems, this system maintains ball velocity shot after shot and does not have to be re-cocked if the anti chop technology had to be engaged.

5 of 5 Best Starter Marker/So Many parts and upgrades December 31, 2018
Reviewer: Christopher Soto from Plainfield, IL United States  
For starting or anyone looking to make  a crazy gun the tippmann 98 is your gun, for starters is a gun so simple anyone can fix and the replacement parts are cheap as well not to mention, also there pretty strong, enough where u can drop it and pick it right back up and keep playing and if your a just a monthly player playing ever now and then, this is for you, the 98 is a type a gun where u can throw in your closet for 5 years and pick it right backup and shoots just the same it did 5 years ago, and i recommend the ACT so you dont end up crushing paint and if you ever feel like you need to up your game u can upgrade the gun in so many ways and make it into a machine which i did and i want to say to you its worth every cent and the time 10/10 would buy again

ps i didnt write this for the give away but if i did win an all red lux would be pretty cool;)

4 of 5 Reliable Option! December 29, 2018
Reviewer: Joshua Rodriguez from Mercedes, TX United States  
Guys, if your looking for a simple, reliable, starter marker. The Tippmann 98 Custom is for you. This gun has been around as long as i can remember and shooting more times than i can recall it has never failed. Whether playing woods ball, hyperball, or any kind of rec paintball its a trustworthy and reliable gun. Never have had any problems with it and would choose it over and over again.

5 of 5 Best gun ever December 27, 2018
Reviewer: David Carrasco from Hayward, CA United States  
This is the best gun that you can ever buy. This might sound like a cliche but it it is. This was my first gun and i have ever bought and it runs like a champ. You can use this gun once and run it through mud then put in your closet for ten year and it will still run like it was just out of the box.also ever since I got the gun it has not chopped a single ball. This thing also a tank, paintball fields use this gun as rentals because they know it is very durable and it will also be very reliable. So if you are looking for a really good beginner gun, this is the one to get.

2 of 5 Unreliable August 20, 2018
Reviewer: dr.blaster.50  
I bought my 98 Custom and it had springs broken out of the box. Sent it to Tippmann and they fixed it. 3 months later it had a massive leak and had it serviced at Tippmann again. 2 months later I played with it; it would not shoot over 240fps. I just gave up and won't service it since I instead saved up for an RSX and I have yet to have a problem with it. The ACT works surprisingly well and is a nice touch. I know everyone loves this marker but for me it was tremendously overrated.
