Buy a quality barrel, polish the internals, and use HPA along with quality paint. After that, practice practice practice.

I couldn't agree more, also, I find that it REALLY helps to have a stock on my gun for when im standing or in crouch position, I play Broadsword and occasionaly Ill switch it up and go out recon/sniper and I have a 98C W/ J&J 16" Ceramic barrel, Olive green CAR stock, Double trigger, and a BB gun scope(Perfect magnification!), but for now, go with what Weigel21 said and get a stock later, because although they are really nice to have, they aren't a priority. :laugh:

What he said.

I've basically got a stock 98 with a 14'' j&j. And I took off the detachable front grip part. And i'm going to polish the internals before I play this season.

Best thing to do, 16" J&J ceramic one piece barrel, get the apex tip and use the good ol' tape method, use HPA, good paint, oh, and if you really want to get fancy, put a nice little starfire bolt in there while youre at it, and a stock cant hurt for stability and accuracy, i can place a 5 shot grouping at 200 feet inside a window about 2'x3', best gun ill ever have

Instead of the Apex tip on a J&J use the Lapco Apex ready barrel. The Big Shot I believe? VERY NICE! Much nicer than a J&J. If you are using HPA on gun don't go with a stock obviously, but if you've got a vest and a remote definitely go for a stock of some type. That is, if you like the feeling and stability of a stock. A lot of it is personal preference. Just make sure you have a great barrel. Try and concentrate on investing in performance upgrades, not cosmetic.

I agree with pretty much everything that has been stated. There isn't a whole lot of "upgrading" that needs to be done. A barrel and consistent air source are all pretty much any marker needs.

I too recommend Lapco barrels. An unported Palmer's brass barrel also would quite well. CP's one piece barrels are very nice if you're on a budget. J&Js are alright, but for the price I think there are better alternatives. As for length, the best length is what is comfortable to you. All you need is 8'' of unported length and anything after that is up to you. There's no real improvements with longer barrels.

Getting a HPA tank is the simplest route. If you know that you want to stick with CO2 I would recommend a Palmer's Stabilizer. You can get similar consistency to HPA, and you still get to utilize the option of smaller tanks.

A spring kit is the only other thing I would recommend. For its price it can make a significant improvement in air efficiency. Tippmann velocity adjusters work by choking air flow out through the power tube. It's convenient, but it also wastes gas. Ideally you want to have the lightest spring possible in the marker and the velocity adjuster as open as possible.

I personally recommend using your air tank on-gun as a stock. However, if you do want to run remote, I would recommend using a bottomline mounting stock. CCI sells nice T and L stocks. In Yo Face Paintball also makes some. They're lightweight, sturdy, and give you the same amount of stability without getting in the way of your mask.

If you really want to, or have to, stick with CO2 then go with a siphon kit (not Anti-siphon) and run liquid CO2. You'll need to replace the plastic power tube with an aluminum one, but once that's done you'll have a setup that's just as, if not more, consistent then HPA. Also, you'll get a really cool white cloud of CO2 every time you fire.

eh, I say stick with a gravity hopper for now, most people can't outshoot gravity with a 98 anyways.

personally I think you best option is to go for a barrel first. then whatever else you may need.
Iv used C02 on my 98 for 3 years and the only difference between that any my HPA tank ( for my automag) is that it makes a deeper shot sound..And I think that its 85% my mind playing tricks on me.

other then your barrel I say use your tank as a stock. and a spring kit. the spring kits for 98's are alot better then some of your other options becuase they will be much lighter, so you dont have to use the same amount of air to reach your desired velocity. thusly improving air efficancy.
