Description Warranty
The Tippmann A5 paintball gun is highest end of Tippmann’s “blow-back” marker guns.  (Blow-back markers use a sear to release a hammer.  The spring loaded hammer then hits the main valve, opening it to allow gas to propel the paintball.)  Other Tippmann paintball guns that are internally similar to the A5 include the Tippmann 98 and US Army paintball guns.  What makes the A5 unique from these other guns is the included Cyclone Feed system and the “MP-5” design look.   The cyclone feed is a hopper system made by Tippmann that uses a gas powered ratchet to load each ball as you shoot.  This ensures a jam free shooting experience.  The A-5 uses push pins to hold the body together.  This makes disassembly for cleaning very fast.  The A5 body is die cast aluminum with a flat black powder coat.  The gun features a front cocking knob that prevents dirt from entering the gun.  The cyclone hopper included will hold 200 paintballs.  This gun will work with either CO2 or compressed air as a power source. 

> This is the basic version of the Tippmann A5. Two other factory versions are available.  One with a “R/T” trigger (short bursts of full auto) and an Electronic version of the A5 that is programmable for fire rates.

The A5 accepts many upgrades.  Most common are barrels, stocks, two finger triggers, and offset hoppers.  Check out the A5 Upgrades section for the complete selection.  This A5 can be upgraded to any of the other versions of the A5.

5 of 5 Woodsball gold standard July 19, 2016
Reviewer: Michael Vining from Bedford, NS Canada  
These markers are the AK-47's of paintball. You can mod them to death,abuse them, treat them like garbage (I wouldn't recommend the "treat like garbage part") and they still keep banging out consistent performance. Honestly, some minor routine maintenance and these markers last for years. Totally user maintainable and Tippmann customer support is outstanding. I've had my A5 for 8 years and it's never let me down. I currently own 4 markers (Invert mini/P.M.I/R.A.P & the A5) and I've used/owned many markers over the years, the A5 is hands down the best woodsball marker ever produced. The only must have "out of the gate" upgrade; the barrel. Id recommend a Lapco BigShot Assault (14-Inch .687 Bore) based on price and performance. Happy hunting.

5 of 5 tippmann A5 July 24, 2012
Reviewer: michael weekes from bronx, NY United States  
i love this marker. it caused no problems at all. Shot perfect, no broken balls, and no jamming. Lightweight and comfortable. The only thing I would say you have to do is upgrade the barrel from the stock and that's all
