Hello!

Due to thievery/destruction by a jerky ex-friend, I have lost the internals of my 98 custom. This includes my power tube AND bolts! I bought my tippmann from a friend and have no idea where or how much replacements will cost! Can anyone help me?!

Basically, I would need replacements for everything inside the gun, (aka the front bolt, firing tube, rear bolt assembly, spring, I can probably make a new firing mechanism myself, (since the 98 is so simple). I mean EVERYTHING except the fricken stamped metal that makes the frame and the bolts which hold it together!

perhaps if someone could compile a list for me, or possibly direct me to a pdf or something. I went to a paintball shop, and they said I should post on the tippmann forum.

Oh man! That SUCKS!

A good place to start would be here:
http://www.tippmannparts.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=catalog.ca talog&categoryID=12

The parts diagram is also linked on that page.
Once you have the pieces... it shouldn't be hard to assemble.

Although I will say this... it will definitely be MUCH cheaper, to just consider what you have a total loss... and find a used 98 to replace it.
For the cost of just the powertube, valve and front bolt... you can probably find an entire used gun.

Good luck.

first off, THANK YOU SO MUCH

not necessarily, because I have access to machine a few things myself. I seriously can't believe they sell thumbs for 10$. The only things I see I will need to purchase are;

8 trigger
4 spring
3.50 front bolt
11 rear bolt
11 power tube

37.50

A lot cheaper than getting a used 98 for 75$ imo. Instead of buying the springs from the site, I will prob just go to my local hardware store and pick them up for about .05$ each. I may even try to see if I can get a working power spring :).

Solves the internal problem, plus its an upgrade.

Bolts can be found at any hardware store for real cheap.

Getting a LP kit would necessitate a secondary reg though so it would probably be a lot more expensive than just replacing the stock parts.
