25 February 2009 - 01:07 PMim not worried from the wosie kick from the gun as i am so much of its wear and stuff. im trying to make a 30bps tippmann just cuz i can. and if you guys were smart and read good you can see my mods in my sig so i already got a stock and that. besides were the heck am i going to put a stabilizer on this thing i got the longbow stock and its hooked up directly to the power tube and i run remote
If you were smart, you'd realize that no one cares about your mods unless it has something to do with their mods.
If you want a 30 bps marker, why did you start with a Tippmann? I like Tippmann's as a bullet proof semi-auto. Make them too fast, and they become the biggest JUNK out there. Just my opinion...
Anyways, if you really want to try one. I'd consider this http://www.darkhoriz...om/products.asp. It's a little more pricey, but probibly better than the tech-t in my opinion.
The ultimate result could be faster cycling, but the lighter weight may not open the valve as much, releasing less air. You may have a problem with it not re-cocking earlier as the tank gets close to empty. No one's ever going to know unless someone does one. For me, the more I play, the more I prefer good old semi-auto...
25 February 2009 - 06:39 AMOn an M98, the spring for the trigger is a pull type, not the push type that the Custom has. This prevents a M98 owner from installing a response trigger since the trigger spring is in the way.
Also, the 98 Custom has the port in the valve to power a response trigger, or cyclone feed. The M98 does not have this port. I drilled a hole in the receiver, and installed a custom powertube, and now I use a cyclone on my old M98.
M98's and 98 Custom's prior to SN 495,000 had older style barrel threads. Any 98 barrel can go on the older threads, but only newer threaded barrels can go on the newer threaded markers. This really isn't a big deal anymore, the thread change happened about 8 years ago, and it's hard to find the old style barrels.
Last change I know of, but I don't know when they did it. At some point, they changed customs to have a push style sear spring instead of the pull style. This isn't a big deal, but know what you have before you buy replacement parts, as you cannot interchange the two sear types.
25 February 2009 - 06:24 AMI'm willing to bet that it is just like most other "upgrade parts." The advertisement makes it sound a lot better that it will actually be... Save the money and put it into a Palmer's Stabilizer, or a good sized barrel kit. Those are upgrades that do deliver what they say. A little less kick from your marker, what's that really going to help???
If you're really set on trying it. I'd buy a second stock rear bolt for about 20 bucks, and drill some holes in it to make it lighter. More or less the same thing Tech-T did.
24 February 2009 - 07:58 AMThe height of the hopper is so close on both of them. The rip clip is a little lower but only about .5 cm. Without the hopper on it, the rip clip is about half an inch wider than the cyclone.
I went out & played on Sunday. Only shot about 1000 rounds all day, but I have to say the Rip Clip is great. I did have the balls jam up inside the Rip Clip once, but I figured out to use the crank wheel on the bottom to unwind the loader to clear the jam, then wind it back up to re-load the spring. It was pretty quick to deal with. I will say, I never had a jamming problem with the cyclone (Cyclones don't jam, they become blenders). But, Aside from the jam, I did not have a chop all day, which was nice.
Another notable thing... My day was ended when I tripped on something on the field, fell and landed on my gun. Most of the impact was taken when my hip broke my adjustable stock. Anyways, I came down pretty hard on the rip clip, and it didn't get phased. I would have a hard time believing the cyclone would take a hit like that without breaking something. The rip clip is very strong & durable, and now it's officially broken in, he he... As for the trip, all I can say is oops...
19 November 2008 - 08:16 AMThat's good to know. I guess that was the bottom line when it came to buying one or not.
