 Side note I know more about taking things apart and putting them back together (thats my day job) than the whole computer thing. My apologies for the above large font

I was going to add this and this looks like the perfect place. Check your sear pin I dissembled mine to remove the safety  I'm left handed and kept engaging the safety on the field NOT GOOD. When attempting to reassemble I noticed some resistance. I saw the sear pin was bent after unsuccessfully trying to bang it straight 1) its hardened 2) its small 3) it goes flying when struck. I ordered a new one $1

Hi, I have a tippmann 98 platinum, and I can't figure out how to take apart the front sight (where you push down on it to release the hopper).  It got hit with some paint, so I need to clean inside there, but unlike the normal 98, it's locked in place and I can't pull the pin out.  I tried with pliers and the pin wouldn't budge.  What's the trick to it?  The manual wouldn't say.
Thanks.

The reason for threading the screw all the way in, I can only imagine, is so when you remove the receiver halves, it does not damage the valve threads, in the power tube. Aluminum is a very soft metal. Especially so, in these guns.

As for "the gun won't fire now" i'd recommend describing the symptoms a bit more... do you have air leakage? Will the bolt react, but the paint not project? Details are key here...

The other day I was taking mine apart, missed the part in the manual about turning the velocity screw all the way in.
 
The gun won't fire now, what could be a solution for this problem?  Does it have to do with me removing the screw?

When I was putting mine back in I started to tighten up one of the screws and just the top of the thread like in the one like just fell out, I didn't use pressure or anything when putting it in. Now I have to push the one screw in a tiny bit for it to catch but it still tightens up just fine so I think im ok.

how often should you take the 98C apart and do a thorough cleaning?

Okay, i took apart my gun last night and everything went fine. The only thing I wasn't sure about was the endcap did not fit in nice and snug. It came out of the back of the gun just a little bit. So, I took it apart again and looked to see if the cap was fitting in the threads right, and it was. I do not think this will pose a problem, but has anybody else had this happen to them? Thanks

Hey, I got the same problem as axio, I haven't been able to figure it out yet.
I think we both have the ACT, or anti-chop-technology, models. They have two extra springs and two extra matal parts. I was able to put the spring from the regular 98 custom back in, but this one stops me from cocking it all the way. I would appreciate it if someone could help me out.
In the worst case scenario I could return it and say it jammed on me.


Please Help Me

No CO2...

 

Or compressed gas of whatever kind.  We played this weekend with compressed air (special tank required but no other mods) and it worked same as CO2 except NO FREEZING. Excellent. Also easy to take a small group out for woodsball as you can take an old set of scuba tanks with you and fill the tanks in the woods. We are new, but learning as we go.

i have the same problem and it drives me nuts. i can never get the handle to come together but i will try ur technique. thank you thank you

Hi,

I'm having trouble reassmbling my 98C. I went paintballing for the first time this weekend, and everything on the 98C worked great, except I was getting a leak from inside the gun. I believed this was due to the air supply line going into the gun, so I took it apart, applied teflon tape, and then began to put it all back together.

 

However, my bolt assembly is different from the one illustrated in the user manual, the pdf on the tippmann sight, and the one illustrated here. My rear bolt has two springs coming out of it, instead of one. I can't figure out which spring goes where... basically, i've tried different combinations to make it work, but after reassembling it, the cocker won't pull back far enough to let the sear catch. Please help. I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong here.

 

There is one spring and a nail-shaped metal piece that you slide through one end of the spring. The other spring set has a spring wrapped around a metal dowel on each end of the metal dowel.

 

Where do these springs go? Thanks for your help.
