OK. We use to make the M98 which was 1 inch shorter than the M96. We orginally developed it for Cheytac to shoot the 408 Cheytac. We made thousands of those. But now we offer the M96 to shoot the 408 Caliber. If you think about it we should have never made the M98 which was only a Inch shorter. Because now with the lower set up to go onto the M96 a shooter can truly have a mulitple caliber rifle with real magazines. A barrel conversion kit for a M96 can also include a lower with mag. So a little more money but a true magazine fed rifle in multiple caliber. The lower changes out with 2 screws.
So anyway now when you order a 408 Caliber it is a M96. Also available in 375 Caliber.
