This Gun is a good starter or woods ball gun. I started with this gun and was satisfied with it. I play speed ball, so i needed something faster, but the gun worked well and never broke for a year. One problem with it is that the feed neck is a huge target.

first all great marker and you can really make this gun how you want it. there are parts for everything from bolts to grips. you can up the rate of fire and up the cyclone so this is a plus. the weight is the only problem i have with the gun it doesn't bother me until you go to a big game or play for several hours.

second of all durability is maxed out on this thing and all i can say is damn.

third it is not a gun you keep stock you need to up it for it to be amazing. i have a lot of money in mine i probably spent around $500 more after buying it so yeah.

this gun is one of the best woodsball or scenario guns out there (if you did this to it, it might scratch the finish)

I got this gun a while back, and right off the bat i slapped a shroud and stock on it, and bought a remote line since i sold my old one after i bought a speedball marker. This gun is stellar, especially for the price you pay! around, what, $250 after tax normally? I got mine on sale. Wit a better barrel, this thing's a beaut. Reliable, strong and versatile, and not to mention (arguably) the most customizable marker on the market. The low profile hopper it great, i love it. Cyclone feed blows me away. Unjamming rod is a sweet edition, too. Great beginner marker, and also a stellar base for more of an experienced player. At the end of the day I'd recommend this marker to anyone. It's legendary.

But what's a good review without some dirt, right?

Well, while I adore my A5, there are some very minor ... imperfections, with the gun. Nothing's perfect. Sometimes, when I fire it, the bolt doesn't cock back fully so I have to cock it back manually, and unfortunately it happens more than just seldom (If anyone knows how to fix that, please feel free to pm me!). Another con is my shroud, the Killhouse Weapons Systems 416 shroud, was really, really difficult to install straight. It was easy to install crooked, but not straight. Then again that's more the shroud's fault than the gun's.

Bottom line? It's a tippmann A5, it's legendary and beautiful. Buy one while they're hot (but then again will they ever go cold?)

Tippmann Sports A-5 Great gun for woodsball. A lot of customization can be done. Great service. It can be a bit heavy.

Tippmann Sports A-5 Its an ok looking gun but if you put an e-triger on it becomes an awsome gun if you like playing woods ball, not so much for speed ball. It a good and reliable gun for beginers.

The tippmann a5 is one of the most customizable markers I have ever seen, you can customize it to look like an MP5 or as an M4. The great thing about the A5 is that you could buy a magazine conversion for it which i have done. Its a pretty cool gun for the price. The only thing i don't like is that the air source adapter is like an asa and it doesn't make sense why it wold be done.
