While I'm not 100% sure, I believe that's the case.

You can use any valves from any year cocker on whatever year you have. They will all fit, but you will find earlier valves/guides were designed for unregulated CO2 (ie: small ports, stiff springs) while the later design leaned more towards regulated CO2/HPA at lower pressures (99+ valves had larger air passages and were sprung with softer springs). Somewhere in there, the spring length changed, but that shouldn't affect putting a different valve in your 97 body.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Valve tool is just a 5/16 allen key. You'll have to keep pushing on the valve pin to keep it engaged in the hex but it'll work.
