Tippmann model 98 question?

So I am brand new to paintball. I have a rather simple question, do parts for a tippmann 98 custom or any more recent tippman 98 paintball gun work for a tippmann model 98?
For instance, I wanted to put a flatline barrel for a Tippmann 98 custom Platinum series marker on my model 98. Is that fine?
I bought a tippmann model 98 for a rather cheap price and want to upgrade it.

I'm pretty sure they fit but your question would be better posed in the Tippmann section.

The barrel thread for the model 98 and 98 custom are the same so you can use that barrel. Don't spend too much money for a barrel, get a cp or a j&j barrel which you can find them at ansgear for 30 or used for less

Actually in the mechanical aspects. Not man parts are swapable unless you have an early model of the 98c. Same for the barrels. The threads got thinner on the newer (pre platinum) models so some of the old barrels wont fit right.

All tippmann 98 (custom, custom platinum, special edition, limited edition, etc.) parts will be interchangeable with all tippmann 98 parts and upgrades about 99% of the time.

And I think with the original BT4, Valken SA-1 and all the other tippy 98 knockoffs as well.



On the posting above me: kinda true. You can get them to fit, though.
