It's nothing that will ever become a problem, and the iron sights on paintball guns are mostly useless anyway(but for the record, on the platinum series they're fixed and metal).
The trigger, endcap, front bolt, safety and valve casing are all plastic but I've never heard of anyone having a problem with the plastic parts of the Model 98.

So you don't see a reason to replace the plastic parts.

None at all, I've owned more than a few tippmanns in my day and the only thing that really needs to be replaced are the usually less than great barrels.

No. All of the plastic parts should not be replaced. Things like the bolt are plastic for a reason. The stock Tippmann 98 internals are accually superior to the aftermarket "upgrades".

Just keep the marker clean and oiled and your Tippmann 98 will be fine Cool
