Pull the gun apart and turn the bolt 180 degrees. See if hole is on other side.

He put a striker/hammer from a tippmann A5 in it. You will need to buy a tippmann 98 or a bt4 striker/hammer for it to work.

That rear cap looks different, maybe a rear velocity adjuster (RVA)?

I second this, you can pick up a replacement on tippmannparts.com:
https://www.tippmannparts.com/TA0201...e-p/gp2633.htm
https://www.tippmannparts.com/TA0500...NEW-p/1253.htm
https://www.tippmannparts.com/98-13-...e-p/gp3119.htm

For less you could pick up some used ones off the forums or ebay. Example:

You also could be crafty and just make your own cocking handle, its what I would probably do.

Negative, the sear catch is only on one side of the bolt you cannot just rotate the bolt.


Value for the setup as it sits, no idea. The cocking handle issue and the rear sight missing may deter most buyers but the other parts (barrel, forgrip, RVA(?) and RT) could make it more desirable. I have sold 98Cs in the past with similar stuff for $60-$80, fix that cocking handle issue and you probably would be sitting around the same spot.

Also I like the IP Man thing going on

I think it was setup for a rear cocking knob, take a photo of the rear part of the gun

yeah i think jame is right unless someone threw those parts together just to get it sold. see if you can pull it back byrdman.

that is a pretty cool tippmann 98 project.
