The 98c, in my opinion, is the AK-47 of the paintball world. Is inexpensive. Simple to use. You can drop it, kick it, put bad balls in it and it will still shoot. It may be heavy for a paintball gun, but you can abuse it and still use it. ( Not that im recomending that you intentionaly beat up you marker, the better you treat it the longer it will last and shoot better). Ive used mine in rain, snow, and hot humid summer days and it never failed me.

What you just said is what ive been wanting to say for the longest time.  But never had the chance to.
Its not that i think stuipidity should be punishable by death, i just think we should take the warning labels off of things and let the problem handle itself.

You can look through these thread and find nearly the same quote about AK's and 98's.

I agree, 98c pro has never ever failed me.. iv had it for 6 years, i bought it off a friend who never played back when i was younger. Now all my paintball buddys have a tippy, they saw me having no problems at all and got sick of dealing with their guns breaking. To me my gun only gets better as it gets older, customize it!

serial nuber on my gun is under 25,000 so im guessing its pretty old.

^^^ Never had anything get in the gun through the cocking port.  I like the rocket cock because I always forget and get my thumb in the way of the cocking handle.

New version of the A5's shooting is very simple, just switch to the HPA, so I hope worth it, it is not a gun player and took out all 3 faceshots become useful friends, give them the time difference the day....

I was going to purchase the a5 as a final result of the fact I observed it's a complete whole lot a lot quicker jointly with a complete whole lot better for indoors arenas and 98 is great for that woods only is this legitimate or does the 98 do just good indoors
