    Posted: 08 February 2005 at 7:22pm

ok, i recieved a 98c for christmas this year, i took it out to sc with my friend, i had absalutely no problems with it at all, not even 1 broken ball in like 12 hours, i took it again the next week and broke 4 in the first game, this continued all day becoming very frustrating. i got home and decided to clean it, i found that to get all of the paint out i needed to completely take it apart, NOT A GOOD IDEA, after i cleaned it all, i found it EXTREMELY dificult to put back together, and eventually i managed to lose the trigger spring and the front sight spring, and probably more, i need to know if it is reliable to just send it in to tippmann and have it repaired, there repair hotline is definately not reliable, i live in so cali will it take forever to get it back? if you have any suggestions ill take any advice into consideration, PLZ HELP ME!?!?!?!?

its important to take apart, oil, and clean your gun as often as possible. the first time may seem very confusing, but with more practice, youll know it inside-out.

what shall you do now? get a towel, or some kind of flat clean rough area, and disassemble it on that. then check for what is and isnt there by resorting to your manual, or the one here- http://tippmann.com/support/manuals.asp . take everything out, and neatly lay it out a few times to get to know it. after you find whats there and not there, you can order new parts directly from Tippmann, or at your nearest proshop. find the nearest here- http://tippmann.com/dealers/list.asp?title=California&st ate=CA . and finally, put your new parts in, put it back together, and your good to go. if you still dont want to take it apart, you can take it to a proshop, and theyll replace whats missing for a price. but it is vital that you take apart your gun, clean and oil it after at least every day of play. so this is a good chance to get to know it.

Hey, the two screws on the right side of the 98 (barrel facing away from you) have been stripped, actually the port holes are stripped. Will this mess up my gun or cause any leaks. If so, how can I fix it without having to spend a fortune?

Those two screws hold the valve in place; they're important.  If you don't want to buy a new valve, you really only have two choices.

1.  Use lots of red loctite on the screws and let it set overnight once you put them in.  (If it's really badly stripped, not just a little loose, this probably will not help.)

2.  Take the marker apart and take the valve and screws to the hardware store.  Show them to an employee and ask about slightly larger self-tapping screws to replace the stock ones.

Dont hijack someone else' thread, its considered very rude in the Forum and if you must ask a maintenance question start your own thread.

If your marker is still under warranty then "yes" Tippmann can reliably fix your marker wit no cost to you except maybe the shipping and handling.

There's a neat little picture for you.

And I live in California too, and have been to SC Village...  Another forum member, Sammy, is nearby me.

You can order all the parts on www.countypaintball.com ... that is if you think you could do it yourself. If not I would take it to your proshop but see if you can watch and lear how to do it yourself. aYou might want to watch your language or your gona get flammed.

first watch the language please we try to keep this place family oriented

trigger spring: cut a clicky pen spring to fit, this will not only fix your missing spring porblem but lighten you pull

front sight spring: you can use a paper clip but idunno if that works

i ahve lost my ball lacth many times just order one from tippmann on the phone
