I have a bet with a friend that the 98 Custom is better because of the ACT and the more Customization.
I'd say you lose that bet. I own both and I love my 5. One word about how the 5 is better than the 98, both stock....CYCLONE!!!! That's right baby, no gravity feed. Plus ups and mods for the 5 are much easier to install. New stock? Take out two pins. Installing a flatline, front 4 pins. Flattop rail, you can squeeze on without messing with anything. Air-thru stock, 3 or 4 pins/screws, remove tombstone, plug in new one, reassemble. Putting the new foregrip over the air-line is tricky though. My 5 is pretty much the Broadsword poster child (e-grip, air-thru commando stock, foregrip and flatline barrel).
I have both with mods on them and the 5 in my opinion is much easier to tinker with.
