Allen Paintball Products Aluminum Foregrip for the Tippmann A-5 - Video Transcript
Hello, world. I've got my Tippmann A-5 here today and we're going to take a closer look at the Allen Paintball or APP aluminum foregrip for the A-5. This foregrip is about five inches long once it's installed, and just 3/4 inches wide. So, it's a pretty small foregrip compared to the stock one that you see there. So, if you have smaller hands or if you just like the feel of that smaller grip there, then this is a really nice foregrip. It is aluminum, not plastic. And we'll do a quick install. It's really easy. With your 3/16 wrench, I'm going to take off your stock foregrip. Oops. Sorry, not that one. That's what holds the cyclone feeder on. With your 3/16 wrench, you need to come in the bottom of the foregrip, and there's a bolt up there. And, if you can get your Allen wrench lined up, it quickly unscrews. Dump that, the parts in your handy-dandy magnetic tray there. And on the 2011 A-5's, this foregrip is also held in place with a screw in the front and that is going to be an 1/8 inch wrench. Pop that right out. Throw it on the tray. And that's all that's needed to get the foregrip off of the gun, the one screw that holds in from the bottom and the retaining screw here on the side. You take that, set it aside.
Now, this foregrip from Allen Paintball has a mount, and a spacer, and a screw. Assemble all three to something that looks like that. And this will now mount into the same spot that your original foregrip did. There's nothing that comes up and hooks into here. Still a 3/16 wrench, and snug that down just a little bit over finger tight, not too much. You don't have to crank these on. Your front frame screw you can put back in anytime. It doesn't really do anything at this point other than help hold things together. Put that back. And, now, the foregrip itself just threads in. This has the same threads as any bottle. So, you can screw that in. And there you go. So, that's now the foregrip installed on the A-5. Pretty comfortable.
It's got the finger grooves in the front compared to the stock that's all smooth. Again, it's a little thinner, a little bit different look, nice and durable aluminum. And, if you are so inclined for some reason, like I said, this is bottle threads here. So, if you took this off, you could screw a bottle on the front or any other foregrip that happens to have standard ASA threads right here. Once you have this mount, you could screw anything on there. A bottle won't be functional. It won't do anything. It won't provide air to the gun. But, some people will use a four ounce C02 tank, which would give you a much larger foregrip right there. So, a nice little feature that that is a separate piece. It gives you a little more versatility in the future. And there is the APP Aluminum A-5 foregrip installed.
