sooo my act link arm pin is cracking into the rear bolt guide. im guessing that it is downward pressure from the link arm on the pin that is blowing out the holes. im thinking it may be because of my rufas dawg wicked bolt......

do i even need these pins? from what i understand they are for a act link arm. can i get rid of the bottom one?

If you are able to test the marker before the next time you play go ahead and see what happens. If it works fine you are good to go. If not you will need to get new receiver halves. Judging by the photos it looks like it is an Alpha Black and the receiver halves are $30 per side for a total of $60 plus shipping and handling at tippmannparts.com. Alternately you can call Tippmann and find out what they say.

Wow that sucks. I've never seen that before. I agree with Dark Shadow, get yourself some new receiver halves.

called tippman, the first response was that they would replace my receiver half's, i told them i modded it and that i figure that it would just happen again, can i run without lower act pin im not going to run act. YES, ditch the bottom & just run the top. sounds good to me! this thing runs soooo sweet i dont wanna f it up. im on a whole different level than most markers i face off with. i put paint on point from distance.

Good to know if I ever encounter the same problem with an ACT 98 since I help out at my home field a lot. Your question probably helped someone else save money and/or time on redoing mods.

my alpha black is non act, so i do not need the lower pin

the alpha blacks come with the act pins in place so you can dump the act parts into it if you want

i figure they still have you run the top pin to hold your link arm down and in place

so you would need both pins in place on a act 98

Ah I see. I did not know that. I have not had to crack open an alpha black.
