For some reason my front handle (the one closest to the barrel that you hold onto) is all wiggly and shaky.  Every time I tighten the screw, it fixes the wiggles but now it slides back and forth...  What is going on here and what do i need to do to fix it.
woot tippmann ftw

Not sure which screw your talking about, but if you turn the gun upside down and look down into the handle there is a screw you can tighten. That should fix it.

try putting a pair of pliers on the end of the allen key to give you
better torque, but don't tighten it up too much. Hope it helps

Or pull it out, and goto your local hardware store and buy a LockWasher

Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...
