A-5 Upgrade parts???

Im looking to do some serious upgrades to my A-5 prior to a tourney that im looking to play in November...
As of right now the only thing beyond stock is my 12in Smart Parts All-American barrel which i love
While i know basically what i want to do with my marker i dont know enough about HPA stuff or about different brands to make any informed decisions.
What im looking for...
1.) Drop Forward
2.) HPA tank maybe a 68/4500 but i dont know what brand to look for.
3.) E-Grip with a double trigger
4.) a Secondary Regulator??? again i dont know enough about HPA to know if its worth it...
As you would see im using a tippmann in tourney ball so that means im not made of money so advice on good stuff that isnt redicously expensive is the best...

Any imput will be greatly appreciated

drop, get a shocketech for a small, or drop zone for a large drop. (just suggestions). You need a little adapter to use drops on A5's

crossfire nitro. Cheap, reliable, easy.

Egrip with double trigger

You dont need a secondary reg if you dont want. A lot of people will tell you that you need it, or thats its "best" but you see so much consistency with nitro that unless you really notice problems without it, jsut skip. Just get nitro soon and test it out, then decide

EDIT: I like the crossfire 72ci 4500psi stubby tank, just an opinion though

As said above go with a Crossfire HPA Tank. I would recommend a 68/4500 optimal. Make sure its HP(high pressure)800+ PSI output.

As far as drops, I think the Psycho Ballistics Bullet drop looks the best. Your going to have to get an A-5 adapter to use a drop.(Lapco-DOP-Etc)

Go with the E-Grip all the way!!!!

Secondary Regulation: I run secondary reg. on my A-5. I get consistant shots as much as +/- 5FPS average. This is with HPA and a Palmers Stabilizer. The Palmers looks and works great on the marker. But they are expensive. $85, most regs are. But if your running HPA everytime, Again, as said above its not that nessesary.

Black Macrline Kit. 1 Straight ----- 1 90* fittings and a Macroline.


You can get everything listed at www.hotshotpaintball.com where I got all my A-5 stuff, best prices and best shipping prices.

For a 2nd reg, I would invest in a Palmer Stab. Best reg. for C02, and works great with HPA.
