Does the rear Cocking bolt help shoot any faster or does it pretty much just help keep dirt out of the gun.

I am looking around for hoppers still have some good ideas and waiting for my barrel and center feeder come in. Does the regulator do anything to make your Nitro tank more efficient?

Depends.  Most Tippmann markers operate between 800-850psi.  I've heard some people with secondary regs dial their markers down to around 600psi with no problem.

Not really it just means more pressure.  If you dial it in to an exact with a secondary reg it can help you consistency a little bit.  Honestly its not really necessary with a Tippmann.  Its your call though.  Personally I get good consistency from just my tank regs but some people want better.

Is a Halo B hopper pretty much the best hopper there is? Also how would you spray paint a marker do you  just take it apart and spray paint the outside. Is there a site where I can buy some sort of camo paint. I tried myself on some blocks of wood I found in my garage and it was pretty pathetic.


Oh yea before I forget I am thinking of getting a response trigger for my marker instead of an e grip or anything like that since its a lot cheaper and I am always playing in the front and I would be pissed if I had to put a battery in it. A Response trigger would work with a Nirto Tank right? How fast does it shoot about?

R/T triggers actually tend to work a bit better with CO2 given the pressure requirements. You CAN upgrade the R/T kit to run a higher flow, but that means you're going to wind up running a bit higher pressure than you normally would using something like an e-bolt or an e-grip.

As far as some examples of what some people have done with their '98's to make them more speed-ball oriented, there are a few in the gallery that are prime examples.

ok guys I think I am almost there with the stuff I want to get for my gun. I am going to stick with CO2 but I am wondering if there is anything else I can buy for it besides an Expansion Chamber or is it the best thing you can buy to make your Co2 last longer?
