The Tippmann A5 is one of the most popular pneumatic markers available on the market today. The unit is a semi-automatic marker designed for playing paintball. It is a replica of a real sub-machine gun. The unit offers many features that make it an excellent choice for both experienced and rookie players.
The Tippmann A5 has the ability to be modified in many different ways. While you can use it exactly as it is, the adaptability of the unit makes it perfect for those who want a marker that will grow with them. The A5 is a paintball gun that is certainly made to be changed to accommodate all of your needs. There are many upgrade kits available including barrels, body, drop forwards, expansion chambers, stocks, regulators, triggers and many more. As you can see, as you become more advanced, you can easily adapt your Tippmann to meet your changing needs.
The standard trigger is effective for most people but there are after-market options that make it even better. The e-grip is a trigger and pistol grip that improves functionality by adding an electronic firing system to your unit. There are five different selections for firing including both semi-automatic and full-automatic. Firing modes can be easily changed. The electronic trigger system increases the firing rate.
The Tippmann A5 has an advanced cyclone hopper system for loading paintball ammunition. The system allows the paintballs to be loaded into the chamber at a high rate of speed. It adjusts speed of loading based on how quickly the trigger is pulled. If you’re looking for a fast yet reliable system, the A5 is a good choice.
The unit uses a flat-line barrel system. This is a slightly curved barrel. It has a rough interior section that provides a certain amount of backspin on the balls as they leave the barrel. For this reason, it is considered to be somewhat loud. However, if you can live with the noise, it is well worth it. The advanced barrel design can actually increase the range by up to 100 feet more than a standard barrel.
The A5 is a mechanical gun with a rate of fire of more than 17 balls per second, when using the e-grip upgrade. With a barrel length of 8.5 inches and a total length of 20 inches, it weighs in at 3.5 pounds, without the tank. This makes it a lightweight yet feature-rich gun that will provide you with years of fun.
