this post should be stickied, if you liked this or u all ready have these mods then post and say how much u liked them or how much u didnt like them or add something if i missed something


MOD#1 POLISH YOUR INTERNALS

This mod will enable your Tippmann to cycle smoother. It will be more consistent and it will chop less paint. It is one of the easiest and most important modifications you can do. To polish your internals, use 2000 grit wet/dry sandpaper from the automotive store. Other people will suggest steel wool and then aluminum polish, but the 2000 grit sandpaper will do the job in less time and no polishing will be needed afterwards. You will need to remove the power tube to do this. Unscrew the two bolts holding in the power tube.

Now you can polish the areas highlighted in red below. A helpful hint is to wrap the bolt with the sandpaper and work it back and forth like it would move in the marker.

Now, you may hear people tell you to polish the sear. It is made of too hard a metal to polish, but I do recommend that you polish the receiver halves that the sear touches to make it operate smoother.



MOD #2 LIGHTENED TRIGGER PULL



This is the best home modification out there! Here is the trigger assembly labeled for you.

http://www.kevinswebdesign.com/Paintball/diss6.jpg

To get that hair trigger, first you need to limit the travel of your trigger. To do this you place a piece of plastic or poster board in between the trigger and the power tube. Another option is to use electrical tape. You can see the orange piece of paper that I used here. You donít want this to be too large or your trigger wont reset. I like to experiment by leaving the marker assembled like the picture above and manually work it to make sure that the metal slider on the trigger can click below the sear when I let the trigger go. This modification may disable your safety. If this happens, remove the safety pin and enlarge the hole in the trigger with a razor blade or drill so that the safety slides through.



Now to take the slop out of your trigger, you need to replace the pin that your trigger pivots on with another slightly larger pin. I had luck finding a cheap drill bit that was a couple of thousandth of an inch larger than the pin at the hardware store. Cut the shank of the drill bit to the same length as the old pin. You should have to hammer it into the trigger and still have it spin freely in the receiver half. Thatís as good as it gets!

Now to make the trigger release easier, get a clicky pen spring from any clicky pen. Take that spring and trim it to two coils longer than the spring in front of the trigger. Replace the trigger return spring with the clicky pen spring. This spring here:

While you have the clicky pen spring in your hand, cut another length to fit over the sear rest pin. This will give you a real hair trigger. WARNING: This may turn you marker into full auto if the spring is too thick. You may want to test this one out before you go in public!



Now to quiet up the sear and get rid of the pinging noise that you marker makes, take out the sear return spring and cover it with a piece of clear aquarium air tubing. Some people suggest using orthodontic brace band to replace the spring, but I donít recommend this as it may fail in a game.



REASSEMBLY: Reattach the power tube first and then use the pics above to ensure that you leave nothing behind and that you reassemble it all in the right place. If you are assembling it right you can do it all in one receiver half and simply lay the other side on top. When reassembling, make sure that the square blocks that the ASA screws into are seated properly. This will save you a headache.



When screwing the halves together, be careful that the nuts that fit into the back side of the body are seated properly before you try to put the bolt back in. That way you donít strip them.



MOD#3 FEEDTUBE



This mod will remove the annoying wiggle you have in your feed tube. To remove the feed tube, press down on the front sight and swing the tube down.

Now take a spare tank O ring and stretch it across the bottom of the feed neck and put it back on like this:

CONGRATS: You now have a kick but home modded 98C. Give Ďem hell!

A lot of these mods are quite common, most of these if not all were once on model98.net.

yeah, I've seen those before. If I'm right those are already on the forum about 100 times each. I guess good post, though.
NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.
