Model 98 threads to Model 98 Custom barrel threads whats the real deal

I have a Model 98 Custom I want to put an adapter on to run a spyder barrel kit I have from years past. Now I went searching around barrel adapters and seen some that stated model 98 new to model 98. Things along those lines. So how does the barrel thread thing work now with Model 98s

Will new and old barrels both fit 98 customs?

Will new 98 custom barrels not fit 98 old style?

I am kind of lost so I figured a quick stop here would take care of me.

Thanks for the input

Adam

Indeed they are. Model 98, 98 Custom, Alpha Black, Project Salvo, and Carver One markers all share the same barre thread.

You can find adapters for your Spyder barrel to work on a 98.

Yes but I've seen older 98s with new barrels not seat all the way. My apex won't seat all the way in an older 98c but will in my newer

This is true.

I know this thread is 4 months old, but for anyone else looking, the Model 98 and Tippmann 98 Custom do have some discrepancies between the two threads. I've had 98 Custom barrels not fit a Model 98, a Model 98 barrel not fit a 98 Custom, and I've had barrels that fit both of them. You would just have to try and see.
