No it does not. there is only one 98 shroud: Related links
No, the screw set is off and there is holes for the cyclone feed.
No. the thread pattern is NOT the same
This statement is half true but half untrue. The tippmann A5 and 98 custom do indeed have different threads. But after the A5 tippmann made the X7 which has identical threads to that of an A5. Because of this a barrel with "Tippmann A5" threads, will fit on a tippmann x7, but will not fit on a tippmann 98 custom.
No, they will not both fit unless you have it custom fitted.
In theory it should, but it all depends on the aftermarket producer. If Tippmann produced it, it most likely is universal. If it is not however, it is most like A5 specific.
No it will not. the Handguard on the barrel is in the way of the handguard on the shroud.
No, only a Tippmann A-5 comes with a cyclone feed standard. However a Cyclone can be purchased that will fit the 98 Custom.
They should be universal.
Yes, all 98 threaded barrels fit: model 98 98 custom alpha black/ bravo one project salvo/ tango one carver one They will NOT fit: tippmann A5 Tippmann X7/ phenom TPX pistol tippmann prolite spyders or any other companies
yes it will fit because the treads are the same
It depends on the threads of the Apex barrel. If the threads are that of a autococker, A5, or spyder then no, it will not fit. Though if it does have Tippmann threads then by all means it will fit.
