I'll just throw my two cents in here.
As a player who lives and dies by having sights, I find the A-5's sights are much more useful, than the 98's system. The 98 system on mine was actually crooked, and the rail on top (Platinum) blocked the front sight a lot. Now, I enjoyed mine for the time I had it, but a lot of things are better on the A-5. The cocking handle on the 98 is open and cycles back and forth. While I don't have an issue with that, I do believe the A5 system of having a handle cock the hammer internally without having that slot in the side. Also, the handle doesn't fly back and forth.
The cyclone, while not perfect, pretty much gives you the ability to go full auto in the future without upgrading. The field strip is much easier, and as someone who frequently does work on other markers while at the field, I can tell you that having everything contained is much easier than springs and stuff flying out. On the A5, you can take off the forward grip. The 98's grip is fixed, much to my chagrin.
However, I believe that the A5 is bested by the BT4, but that's just my personal taste. Also, ACT in my opinion is useless. It's not like the 98 was chop happy in the first place.
