    You need to be a bit more specific mate.
    What do you want to achieve and what are you willing to spend?

    In all honesty, I would look into upgrading your marker UNLESS you want to stick with the 98 for a long time.
    You can sink a lot of money into things, but you might find things better if you bought something new instead, like an Etha, Crossover or Proton.

    If you DO want to upgrade the 98, a decent barrel kit will help... but remember; the 98 is reliable but it is a site gun - not that there is anything wrong with that - it's just that you have to weigh it up spending £xxx on upgrades or a new marker for:
    Proton - £250
    Crossover - £300
    Etha - £305

    My Setup is:
    Markers: Planet Eclipse Gtek and Etek 5.
    UKPSF: 5429

    Re: Help please

    Would it be worth keeping as a back up if I fitted a decent barrel and expansion chamber

    Re: Help please

    Well regarding reliability you dont need to do anything, 98's are bullet proof!

    In regards to accuracy there is only 2 mods's I would suggest the first is a decent barrel, preferably a sizeing barrel like a hammer head or freak kit.
    These will give you more accuracy than anything else.

    The 2nd is a Tech T zero kick hammer, These reduce recoil slightly and improve air efficiancy.

    Other than that its just aesthetic mods.
    I wouldnt bother with the expansion chamber mod as it gives no benefit really.

    But as wildwayz has said you have to keep in mind the 98's are built to last but they are not the most consistent guns in the world.
