  • The response trigger system for the Tippmann 98 custom is by far one of the best customizations you could follow through with for a Tippmann 98 custom A
  • It definitely doesn't get any faster, and maybe even compares to the electric trigger grip
  • Again, you can set the trigger to shoot very fast fully auto, very slow fully auto, burst, single shot, single shot with air assist for more rapid firing, etc. I would recommend this trigger to anyone interested in some speed, or any of the other above firing modes I've listed that this trigger is able to function at
  • I think the Tippmann company will install the trigger kit for you for free, so long as you pay for the shipping both ways on the way to their factory

      The response trigger system for the Tippmann 98 custom is by far one of the best customizations you could follow through with for a Tippmann 98 custom A.C.T. It definitely doesn’t get any faster, and maybe even compares to the electric trigger grip. This system is different though. It runs off of air and makes your gun fire much faster by using air. This means that the gun will remain all mechanical, and tournament legal. Many tournaments don’t allow you to use electrical triggers because they cause problems in the game, and give unfair advantages. This trigger may give unfair advantages, but it’s still legal because it’s mechanical.

      SPEED Some people prefer to just use their hands to make their guns shoot. Some people prefer to have an electric trigger do all of the work for them. This gun doesn’t run off of electricity, but you can actually manipulate the pressure input to make the gun fully automatic, burst fire, or even just shoot faster each time you press the trigger. I personally like setting the trigger so that if I hold


      it in the correct position (a certain point in the pull of the trigger) it will shoot as fast fully automatic as the gun and the hopper can shoot. Not only can you shoot in fully auto by holding the trigger slightly back, but you can still do complete, full trigger pulls if you would like to shoot one ball at a time at some point during a game, which almost always happens. This is way more effective than having a fully automatic electric trigger because for one, it’s mechanical. Also, having the ability to shoot one ball at a time or shoot fully automatic in a very fast manner are both great features of this trigger. Again, you can set the trigger to shoot very fast fully auto, very slow fully auto, burst, single shot, single shot with air assist for more rapid firing, etc. I would recommend this trigger to anyone interested in some speed, or any of the other above firing modes I’ve listed that this trigger is able to function at!

      INSTALLATION I have to admit. Installation is ...


      • a bear. If you’re not very mechanically inclined, I would recommend having the pros install it. I think the Tippmann company will install the trigger kit for you for free, so long as you pay for the shipping both ways on the way to their factory. Even easier, find someone who knows how to. Most people can find a friend, parent, someone. If not, find your local paintball facility and see if they’d be kind enough to, and offer them some money if they don’t lay a price down. If you think you are mechanically inclined enough to install it, make sure that you know what the entire inside of your Tippmann 98 custom marker is composed of first; you’ll need to know the gun inside and out without the trigger before you even start taking the gun apart and adding in new parts, punching holes, running lines, etc. I was able to install it myself, but it took around an hour of very frustrating work. I could install anyone else’s in like 5-10 minutes now.

        It’s very easy work after

        you install one. Same goes for most custom parts to the 98. Some are click and play, some manipulate the whole gun. This is one of the harder ones, for sure. It basically reconstructs the internal makings of the gun.

        APPEARANCE Don’t worry about this looking large, bulky, heavy, or anything like that. The weight of the additional equipment is next to nothing. Maybe just a few grams. You will have a tube on the outside lefthand half of your gun, about 2 inches long. This is the tube that gives air to the cylinder which powers the trigger rod. This doesn’t bother me, and doesn’t bother most people for the most part. Other than that, the only thing you can see is a small metal rod behind your trigger. I think it actually adds to the gun myself.

        AIR CONSUMPTION This hardly consumes any more air than your marker regularly would. Most of the air that is used with the trigger is derived from “excess air” that your marker would just normally waste. Don’t worry about wasting “massive amounts” of air which some people claim is true, it’s not.

    Hey, I bought a response trigger and put it in, but i know its wrong cause it doesnt shoot fast. do you have to put in that new black power tube on that came in the pack? It looked the same as the one already in there so i didnt feel like taking it apart, like it said to. Other than that i have the flow control and cylinder assemblies installed. Anything Im doing wrong or any suggestions? Thanks –Chris–
