i believe that is the velocity adjuster. It increase/deceases the speed of the paintball that gets shot out.

The Velocity adjuster is on the other side... that thing screws off and has a hole. Don't know what it does though.

Oh, actually I wonder if that's where the response trigger goes.

If you buy a response trigger, the hook up is around that area. If it really concerns you, just take it into a paintball store.

*ahem* A5 FTW.

Velocity is adjusted right under the "Tippmann 98 Custom" logo.

That screw is for the cyclone feed, and is linked by a hose, which is supposed to push excess gas to the cyclone system, and rotates the paddles as the gun re-cocks.
(not my picture)
Did your 98 come with a cyclone feed?

That's almost an antique! :P

Did you do your research before you purchased? There are some really good deals to be had if you know where to look and what to look for.
