Since its launch back in 2002, more than a half-million players have turned to the Tippmann A-5 one of the most popular scenario markers in the industry featuring the patented Cyclone Feed System and the ability to field strip in less than 60 seconds. Over this time, the A-5 has also developed into one of the most customizable paintball markers available with hundreds of upgrades and modifications to choose from. Today, Tippmann is excited to announce that this popular marker is even better. The newly redesigned A-5 incorporates ten new enhancements while maintaining the overall aesthetic appearance that paintball players have enjoyed for years.
The result is a newly-enhanced A-5 that incorporates the following ten upgrades:
New Cyclone Feed System improved paddle design and connection point is easier on paint and reduces the æpopcorn' effect, making the Cyclone more reliable in a variety of weather conditions
New External Selector Switch new trigger design allows players to switch easily from safety to firing mode. Plus, the new ergonomic design works great for left or right handed players
New Larger Front Grip new longer front grip has a better feel and incorporates a front tang so, when removed, upgrades are easier to add to the lower portion of the receiver
New Stock Barrel features a 8.5" high-performance design that is stone-honed to enhance accuracy and incorporates new porting to reduce marker noise
New Redesigned Internal Bore to help remove internal components, the receiver features a wider internal bore design for faster field stripping and easier maintenance
New Lighter Receiver Design helps reduce the overall weight of the marker
New Tombstone Connections marker maintenance is now faster and easier than ever
New Sling Mounts removable front mount makes it easy to add a sling
New Low-Profile Hopper offset design utilized on the X7 offers a clear sightline
New Black Gasline provides greater on-field stealth and features heavy-duty construction
Its a great gun for a beginner. The only thing I would recommend is to get rid of the stupidly huge cyclone feed and upgrade the barrel.Also it isn't east to take it apart, but is is a Tipman.
TippMANnn because you'd be nothing if you weren't a man :)
A fantastic overall gun. It has everything you need to be competitive right out of the box. Not very heavy for what it is and has tons of mods and upgrades available. I was quite surprised and pleased with the stock barrel as it does quite well. The stock barrel isn't perfect and an upgrade at some point will improve the accuracy, but you can certainly hold your own with what it comes with. The only downside to the A-5 is that it is not as efficient with air as more expensive guns, but that is to be expected. If an X7 Phenom is out of your price range, you should give serious consideration to the A-5. Stop looking at 98 Customs, spend the extra few dollars, and get this gun that you'll actually be competitive with. Plus the gun is built like a dump truck. Seriously, you could hammer nails with it.
