Apart from everything before your first comma, I'm afraid pretty much the rest of what you have said isn't true. The L98A2 is identical to the L85A2 with the following exceptions: Different flash eliminator, no change lever, no automatic capability.

If you have A) properly cleaned an oiled the weapon and B) filled the magazine correctly, you are unlikely to get many stoppages. If you take a weapon out on exercise and don't clean it at all while you are out there, you cannot expect it to work properly at the end.
The L98 cocking handle is clearly visible in this pic, it's completely different to the L85 cocking handle. It may have changed with the A2 - it's been years since I've been near a cadet rifle and they may have been A1s, I really can't remember - but if they don't still, the L98 certainly has had a different cocking handle.

I remember the old L98A1 with the cocking handle extension!

I do believe that the most recent iteration of the cadet rifle is essentially an A2 with the change lever removed and a modification to prevent full auto. So you can still fire in semi-auto/ repetition mode, which is certainly a step up from the single-shot L98A1 model!
