Used a thin felt pad instead of rubber, seems to work well but we'll see how it wears. I think the hammer to bolt noise is probably the most pronounced 98c action noise, mine just makes a kind of popping "thud" now.

Don't know how many people know but the internals of the a5 are exactly the same less the tombstone wich lets you slide everthing out the back.Other than that the bolts,hammer,linkage,and valve all the same.So to all the people asking the same steps for the 98 and the a5.

you're forgetting one major noisemaker on the 98.
you know how the feed neck swings open when you push on the front sight?
the one that rattles no matter how quiet your hopper is?
puttng a piece or two of electrical tape on the right hand side of the frame below the feed hole until the feed neck doesn't rattle against the body.
one more way to keep your 98 quiet.

...or a rubber band. Though now that I've seen it, I like your idea better.

Sorry about the necropost.

you shouldn't worry about necroposting in this thread... this type of thread should stay a discussed topic (not that its going away any time soon) because too many biggots hate the tippmanns because there is no way to make them quiet. (biggot = one who hates a thing despite and in ignorance of the facts)

i have put a blowback vent in my marker (model98.org) and that works quite well. i dont know about how quiet it makes your marker but it shure improves the feed speed! (5bps to 6 on gravity feed hopper)

I think we all know that putting something on the face of the rear bolt will quiet the marker. it doesnt much matter what it is, but it shure does quiet it down. the best would be the reccomended rubber foot because the rubber foot covers both the metal vaulve pin and the hammer making contact with the power tube. i dont know how well the felt does on quieting the ping from the pin, as that has very little surface area, but i would like to know if that helps with the pneumatic noize.

something i thought about a while ago, replace the left reciever half with an acrylic version, cut in half for the quick strip mod. would be awesome as hell! then you would actualy be able to see the marker working! also you could see the mods you have. stealth goes to crap though.

some sort of sound absorbing paint (basicaly light weight paint applied in thick coats) might get rid of an exceedlingly tiny amount of noise, but your marker would look cool eh?

another thing you could use to stop the rattle from the feed neck is to simply apply a tank o-ring (go figgure) to any extremity of the feed neck. its a tight fit like all hell, but what do you want for free?

another quiet it down mod for the 98 that works quite well (better than expected) is filling the grip with foam, and using seran wrap to keep said foam from sticking to one of the sides.

titanium bolts help. i forget where to get them, but they are supposed to help with smoothing out the action. someone please post where to get them.

and if you dont think anything else will work for a tippmann, buy a stiffi or a scilencer seriously. everyone knows they work but there is still "no way to quiet a tippmann"? those are the biggots i am talking about.

Heard that, if anything, they make it louder.

And I've also heard that actually decrease performance.
You'd have to wait for confirmation from another member though, before you make any decisions.
