There are actually one in the same. There was never an orginial "model 98" only the custom series. The difference though would be found in the Tippmann 98 custom Platinum series with its easy to remove body.
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.
The platinum comes with ATC, which helps to stop ball chopping.
Yes, the tippmann 98 and the tippmann custom are the same marker, therefore the threading of the barrel will be the same.
No, they will not both fit unless you have it custom fitted.
No. the thread pattern is NOT the same
probably up to 600 fps
standard .68 caliber.
Not if you're using a co2 tank.
No it does not. there is only one 98 shroud: Related links

I believe it is a5/x7 threaded.
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.
