They 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. There is also a difference in barrel sizes if im not mistaken but I think the newer 98 customs and platinums have the improved size (the same size as the A5)
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.

They should be universal.
No, only a Tippmann A-5 comes with a cyclone feed standard. However a Cyclone can be purchased that will fit the 98 Custom.
probably up to 600 fps
standard .68 caliber.
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, the tippmann 98 and the tippmann custom are the same marker, therefore the threading of the barrel will be the same.
