both with the flat line. faster? the a-5. i dont think one is more accurate than the other if the same variables exist. type of propellant, bore size, paint size, barrel length, velocity, ect. ive shot both and i feel that both are the same

all guns with the same velocity will shot the same distance....the gun doesnt matter. as long as they are chrono'd at the same velocity

as far as accuracy...stock Vs stock....i assume they are the same as long as all variables are the same (paint, co2 or hpa bla bla bla)

cant forget that if you use crappy paint it will be less accurate,extremely less accurate.

They're the exact same gun inside. The only thing setting them apart, performance-wise, will be construction quality, which is always an issue when you use low-quality cast parts like Tippmann does.

The quality of the A-5 far exceeds the 98. The 98's are rough cast and there really isn't much milling done to them to clean them up. And their coarse barrel threads are prone to a lot more variation than the fine threads of the A-5. What this means is that, if you compared a 98 and an A-5 otherwise set up identically, the A-5 would be slightly better from a consistency standpoint.

98C's are less accurate out of the box, but toss in a stabilizer, new barrel, and polish up your internals and it'll be consistent as any mechanical can be, even with CO2.

All tippmann barrels are brutal.

The A-5s aren't really cleaned up much either, though-the halves themselves are a but nicer (This may be by virtue of age, though-the design is 10 years old now), but I've run across a fair few where, even when fully tightened, the front adapter wiggles a bit, which isn't gonna help accuracy any.

The A-5 does have a slighly better stock barrel, though. The 98's bore is like throwing a hotdog down a hallway. The A-5's isn't much better, but it is some.

Kinda OT, but when did Tippmann stop ruining their stock barrels with porting 5 inches past the threads?
