BBCS Front Bolt Limiter Update Kit Installation for 98 Platinum Series

If you have purchased the Paintball Innovations Inc. BBCS Conversion kits and have not been contacted by PBI to get your no charge update kit, please call or email us so we can get the update kit out to you.

The Updated Front Bolt Limiter kit will eliminate excess rearward movement of the BBCS Front bolt on heavily used markers and increase the life of the ball latch.

Update Kit includes  

  • 2 Square Edge Bolt Stops (PBI#332×111)
  • 1 Tippmann Ball Latch (FA18)                             

*IMPORTANT*MAKE SURE YOUR MARKER IS COMPLETELY DEGASSED!

Remove your air or CO2 tank and dryfire the marker one or twice to ensure there is no pressure in the valve before doing any work on your marker.

Please review the exploded-view schematic of your particular model in the owner’s manual. These can be downloaded and printed from Tippmann’s website if needed. Familiarize yourself with the parts and names.

Special Notes for 98 Platinum Series

**When disassembling 98 Platinum markers with the BBCS system installed, it is necessary to push down the ball latch while removing the BBCS Bolt/Barrel.

  1. Remove feed elbow
  2. Using a pick, small screwdriver, small allen, etc., reach in thru the feed hole and push down the forward facing ball latch foot while sliding the BBCS Bolt/Barrel and Powertube assembly rearward out of the marker.

**Important Notes**

  1. When using .68 caliber hoppers for .50 caliber paintball, it is important that the hopper be pushed all the way down into the bottom of the feedneck reciever, otherwise it will create a edge that will allow .50 caliber paintballs to jam in the hopper to feedneck connection point.
  2. After the marker has been used, you will notice that 2 small dimples in the powertube outlet are formed, these are normal and will not effect the performance of the BBCS equipped marker.
  3. To help increase ball detent life, it is recommended to store the marker in the cocked position.
