No, they will not both fit unless you have it custom fitted.
Yes, as long as it has two holes for the banjo hoses.
No. The trigger assembly for the a5 is set up very different from the 98 custom.
The question is not which is better, but rather what your preferance is. The etrigger will allow you to adjust your rate of fir (ie. semi-auto, full auto, and 3 round burst). Where as the response trigger uses air to push the trigger forward after it has been pulled back. Therefore, in essence if you find the "sweet spot" you will have the trigger bounce of your finger and give you simulated full auto. The drawback is no control over the rate of fire. The advantage is that it has no electronics or batteries. So, again its your personal prefferance.
Dennis Tippmann is the founder of Tippmann paintball.
Yes. Tippmann is the company that makes the model 98 and all of its variants. The "Tippmann 98" may have "platnum" "custom" or "custom pro" after it, but it is an almost identical marker.
Yes, the tippmann 98 and all of its variants use the same threaded barrels.
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.
Yes all 98's are interchangeable no matter the model. But if you haven't taken apart a paintball gun before it could cause problems. When i was putting a new trigger in my 98 the second i lifted one half off about 3 springs shot off. I had to get my owners manual and look to see where all the springs went. Took about 15 minutes longer than it should have. But was worth it in the end.
Yes, the tippmann 98 and the tippmann custom are the same marker, therefore the threading of the barrel will be the same.
No it does not. there is only one 98 shroud: Related links
Yes! They have the same threads. but the tippmann 98 custom platinum is not as good as the original if i were u i would ge rid of the thing...its not that it is bad it just chops and is not built as good as the tippmann 98 custom.
