Drop fwd for 98!

I have a 98 with a flatline and RT. I want to shorten the gun and balance it out with a drop forward. First, do you need a vertical mount? And, will an expansion chamber help a lot with the accuracy?

Thanx

a x-chamber will not help with accuracy. but it will help to keep a more consistant velcioty.

What brand of drop-forward and vert-mount is best? Or doesn't it really matter?

Personally I like the Pyscho Ballistic drops because they were designed for the 98 and work very well especially for the price.

As for the vert mount, Tippmann makes the only one that I know of so it's probably the best.

I have the Pyscho Ballistics Universal, and it's the best I've found for the 98. It balances out my 20oz CO2 well. Plus, you can get it from County Paintball for I think 21.95. It also looks awesome, and moves the tank farther forward than any I've found. I highly recommend.

i think that you should get a labco drop forward. this thing is great its so sturdy it works well and looks great. the thing is 25 and can help a lot. i use one and a 12 ounce and i love it.

more consistent velocity means better accuracy......so, yes, a x-chamber would help your accuracy a little....it would make a more significant impact on your efficency though, seeing as you would no longer be "wasting" liquid......

He just needs screw's.... About the expansion chamber.... your better off getting a reg. unlike what people believe regs. actually help fight more liquid then expansion chambers and regulate at the same time.

its very easy.. just get some teflon tape (any hardware store will carry it) and a cresent wrench .. just be sure to thread it in by hand first that way you assure that you dont cross thread as you turn it in.

I bought my Psycho Ballistics drop for my MiniMag, but I've been keeping it on my 98 Custom lately because it makes such a big difference on that gun! It's a great drop-forward.

You don't need to modify anything inside your gun. Just remove the hose from your ASA adapter, and put the drop-forward in place of the ASA adapter. Then, connect your hose to the drop-forward. You'll probably have to buy a little 90* angle piece to connect it, but that's cheap. Make sure you have Teflon tape to cover up any leaks.

I'd post it here, but it'd be too big, bad for dial uppers (like me).

But go to the picture thread. I have an updated pic of my influential gun. Shows the Psycho Ballistics Universal green drop forward (doesn't come green, I made it...) on my e98.

I've had experienced Lapco, Lapco + T-stock, and this one.... overall, I like this one the best. I just need to get a green macroline and replace this damn 9" hose on a 3" distance.

As far as the CP one w/ flames... I don't trust that one, seems like it'll bust your knuckles. But, if it suits you... go for it.

X chamber

X chambers do a lot more than people think.

I started the day at 275 fps. about 80 degrees in the sun. my friends without X chambers had to turn down their guns after every game. I was still in the 274-276 range at noon. I stayed in the mid 270s the entire 12 hour day, until I ran out of co2 anyway
Maybe my gun is just god like, and I use my super paintball powers to have consistent velocities. but I doubt it
Shocktech makes a nice Drop FOrward. I use one on my 98.
the PB is supposed to be awesome.
