Trigger pulls

Does the Custom 98 have the same insanely short trigger pull as the Model 98? I'm wondering because I'm thinking of buying a tippman (I currently own a spyder, and now have the cash to own both), and if the custom 98 doesn't have the same trigger pull as a model 98, I'll just find a used model 98 and put a double trigger on it.

Yeah the Custom has the same trigger pull as the regular 98. And I must add that it becomes extremely nice with a double trigger.

I agree with Dyoel. Very nice especially so with just a bit of work.

Ummmm.... actualy, the trigger pull is slightly lighter and shorter, and the spring is moved to the front of the trigger instead of on the back by the sear.

Even better. Now to decide if the custom 98 is worth it, or i should put the money into a better gun.

when i first got my 98 custom, the first thing i noticed was how horrible the trigger pull was. its still just as short, but the spring is short and fat, so it felt really mushy and the trigger had a slow return, it felt all mushy. easily fixed with a new spring, but thats just something i noticed about the stock spring. i like how the spring is in front of the trigger though, its w00tish.

I have a Mag with an AWESOME trigger pull. When I got a 98 Custom as a backup, I was pleasantly suprised by the trigger pull. I thought it was great! Nice and short, pretty tight (maybe you got a bad trigger), and light. Makes for a very fast ROF.

Personally, I'd get an AutoCocker, but that's just personal preference. You can upgrade the 98 to make it a real badass gun. If you want the cocker, it's $325 from www.paintballgeeks.com
