Welcome to the Fourms. Yes, a 98 Custom is a great gun for a beginner. They are very relieable. They can take a beating and still keep shooting. Once you play more and decide what kind of upgrades you want, you can customize it in any way you want. Its a great all around gun.

170 seems a little steep. what kind of 98c is it? they have different versions, like 98c with a response trigger, a flatline barrel and an electronic grip.

that actually seems like a good price if it's the pack. but if it's just the gun,
then you're getting ripped off. in canada, the gun alone is only 173.

If you got the cash, I'd just invest in the A-5.  It is the newer Tippmann with the cyclone feed.  You can get a used set-up for $300 to $400 off ebay.  Action Village is also having a sale on 72in 3000psi air tanks for $60 or so dollars. 

Again - only if you got the cash.  I figured might as well get the gun I want now rather than buy a cheaper marker only to buy the A-5 in the end.

Good choice. There are tons of upgrades available for the 98c. Best of all, they're durable and reliable, so you can abuse them more than most guns.

I paid $315 cdn for my 98 custom when I got it, and that was just with a hopper/ tools, no mask/ tank. Stupid sportslodge......

Either way, yeah, its a great starter gun.

get cproE...cuz u get the great A-5 system with the center feed and an egrip...all ur really missing is a vertical adapter and a hopper...wuld suggest a eggII or anything that doesnt agitate for a hopper...and if u dont like ur barrel get a new one...also u mite want get a JCS for a better trig ($30)....and maybe a harness ($20)

ok...cproE, hopper (eggII), barrel, tank, mask= $365....

Again - if you got the cash - get the A-5 notice the guns the last two posters have.
