Tippmann 98 barrel suggestions

Looking for a barrel replacement for my wife's 98. She doesn't want to add any length to the gun though. I know there aren't a lot of 8.5" barrels out there. Any suggestions?? Can probably talk her into a 9.5" or 10", but that's it.

Thanks in advance!

it won't make a lick of difference on a 98. Buy a better gun before sinking money into a Tippmann.

Not an option (sadly). She loves the gun. It fits her well and she likes the feel of it. I'm just trying to make it a little more accurate and consistent.

Acually, short barrels used to be all the rage. DYE, J&J and CP should all have options for the person looking hard enough.

Wow dude, seriously ? That was rude.

@ darksynergy256 - I believe Lapco still makes short barrels for the Tippmanns.

Hammerhead makes a few 8" - 10" barrels for the M98

TechT IFit kit will fit her stock barrel and only add 1.75" to it

Thanks for all the links.... I will check them out

I had actually made a mistake. She has a 98 custom pro that comes stock with an 11" barrel, so that gives us a few more options. I think I'm leaning towards a hammerhead 8" with the techt Ifit kit, or a flasc micro bore kit with 9.5" extension.

Have you had any experience with the ifit kits at all? I've heard mixed reviews.

Thanks again,

I have only ever seen 1 but it was actually the Python Kit (same exact thing). The kid using it used it on a M98 with the stock barrel, but couldn't hit crap with it. every time he pulled the trigger, he jerked it making his paint go all over the place. If you want to use a Freak, the back is 6", but they used to make a 4" tear drop tip making the entire barrel 10" I used to have one:
