For the money this is a great marker, I have been using this marker for a a while now and am very satisfied. I can hand it off to my fiance and she can do great with it as well. In the right hands it is a monster for woodsball. I have not done any serious modifications to the marker and have taken down several high end electric markers. There is more to the game than the marker, the user makes the biggest difference. I highly recommend the flatline barrel as well as the cyclone feeder upgrades from TechT.

great gun espically for woodsball, you just need to be careful with the cyclone as it can turn into a blender on lower quality paint. the tube that feeds air into the cyclone also needs to be quality also. on my friend's A5, he ended up losing it and couldn't use his A5 until he got a new one.

all in all, i'd get this gun, great solid shooter for the price

Tippmann Sports A-5 This is a very reliable gun with alot of upgrades. Why not pay the 10 dollars extra an get a A5 instead of the 98? It works wonders for woods ball and scenario games. This is a great beginner marker!

This gun was the first one I ever owned and I still use it to this day from time to time when the weather is colder because I know this gun will never fail me. Tippmann guns are known for their reliability and this gun is no exception. I do feel like there are better guns out there in terms of accuracy, efficiency and fire rate but with how reliable this gun is makes it worth every penny you spend on it and is perfect for new users who arent that farmiliar with maintaining paintball guns yet.

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.
