I want to pick one of these up when they are available again, but the one thing I don't understand with Tippmann is why they can't let go of the 98 threading. A5 has much more options but it seems like they choose between the two at random.

I would imagine because 98 threads are next to impossible to strip out, remove with far fewer turns and (most importantly) can be cast into the body halves without adding an extra, milled barrel collar to the manufacturing process.
