Learn the pros and cons of the Tippmann Model 98 paintball gun from paintball pro Mike "Pev" Peverill in this Howcast video.


My name is Mike Peverill. I'm here at Pev's Paintball Park in Aldie, Virginia. I've been playing paintball nearly 30 years. I've played professional paintball with numerous pro teams all over the world. This facility here was built from the ground up for paintball, kind of like a paintball Disney Land. Our website is Hopefully you can come out and visit us sometime.

Tippmann Model ninety-eight, workhorse of the paintball industry. Tippmann's been around for over twenty-five years. They're one of the founders in the semi-auto paintball gun, They're originators. They make a good quality product. The reason why they've been around so long is because of the quality product they make. We use these at our paintball park. We have close to five hundred of these paintball guns we use. We use them because of durability, reliability, and they keep on working. I mean you throw them in the trunk of a car and, you know, take it out and six months from now it will play again, and it's still gonna work. A paintball field, you drop it on the ground a million times, it's gonna keep on working. And when you're running a thousand people a day through your paintball park, you need a paintball gun that's gonna be reliable and durable. So it's a great little gun for fun. At the same time, you know when I'm playing with the guys with electronic guns, it's tough because the rate of fire that's one of the downsides is gunning. You know, you're shooting less than ten balls a second with this as opposed to shooting, you know, fifteen balls with one of these electronic paintball guns. So there's a big difference in what you get with what you run it up against, but again, workhorse of the paintball, a great little gun, has all the little features, semi-auto. You know you pull the trigger, fire, good to go, simple, has a safety. It let's you change the barrel to different size barrels that you want. I recommend a slightly longer barrel than a shorter barrel. It's easy to use and it's reliable. It's ready to go, every time.
