I always thought it would be cool to have a thread with real actual pics of a gun's internals and how it goes together and that stuff. So I made one.

I know that Enos has his parts guide, and I know that there are manuals and stuff, but for some stupid people like me who suck at reading manuals (or are too lazy to read them) it is easier to just look at the real pictures of the gun.

Anyone feel free to make guides of any Tippmann guns that aren't already in here, or how to install any upgrades that aren't already in here.

Here's my guide for my 98.

Down near the bottom of the page Baratak (Thanks a ton man!) posted a link to a guide he made for the A5, it's really elaborate, check it out.

Here's my 98 custom and a short sumary and explaination of the parts and stuff.

Sorry for the HUGE files........

WAM! Here's my 98 in all it's glory.

I circled the bolts that you need to take out in yellow. I also circled the rubber cap on the cocking knob, you need to take it off too before you lift up the left reciever side (I learned that the hard way). You also need to unscrew the bolts that hold in your ASA or drop before you lift up the left reciever side. Make sure you put all bolts somewhere they wont get lost (in a bowl or plastic baggie works good).

Here is the insides of it before I took out anything. Just a pic to show what it all looks like.

Here's the front of the gun including the ball detent and front sight assembly. I had to take this one since the first one cut off the front of the gun. Notice how the ball detent sits in the gun.

Basic stuff here. You will want to oil all these parts and their O-rings (except the ball detent). This is the exact position these parts should be in when they fit into the gun.

Again, pretty self explainitory. To remove the endcap simply lift it up and let it kind of pop off the grooves that it sits in. Then you can remove the drive spring and guide pin, along with the cocking knob, buffer O-ring, rear bolt, and rear bolt guide. This is the exact position these parts should be in when they fit into the gun.

Basic trigger assembly (without sear and sear spring)

Complete trigger assembly. If you ever need to take these parts out, it's a good idea to put them into a bowl or something so they don't get lost.

DO ONT REMOVE THESE! These are the powertube bolts, you don't need to remove them for general maintainence or cleaning.

This is the powertube, it's what the powertube bolts hold in. You don't need to take it out for general maintainence or cleaning. To clean under it you can slide a shop rag or paper towel under the front bolt guide.

This is basically just how the ball detent sits in the gun. I showed this just because a lot of peole put it in backwards.

Trigger pins alone.


As far as maintenance, all you really need to do is wipe down all the moving parts and the reciever halves, then oil them up again. Make sure to oil all moving metal parts and all the O-rings. Then, after reassembly, all you need to do is put a few drops of oil into the ASA and then dry fire without paint or a barrel a few times.


If anyone else feels like taking apart their guns and making a sort of  "3D guide" like I did, you can just post it here. That's the main purpose I created this thread and made it a sticky.


If this isn't "sticky worthy" just let me know, or a MOD can unsticky it.

*EDIT* I think I fixed it now.
