Definitely Not A Rental Paintball Gun

Looking for an all around kick ass paintball marker? Then look no further than the Tippmann A-5. With its all aluminum die cast receiver and extra-sturdy black finish, the A-5 is one of the toughest markers available. Its patented Cyclone Feed System links the feeder sprocket to the air system, giving it the power to unleash a fury of balls as fast as you can fire them. Other features include a shock-absorbing end cap for reduced wear and recoil; front-cocking knob, which allows for a fully enclosed receiver; and a 200-round wide-mouth hopper. In addition, it can be upgraded with many different accessories. My recommended configuration of choice is the Flatline Barrel System.

Tippman-A-5.jpgThis marker is fully customizable and can be built to look like anything from an MP-5 to a M-82 Barret, so I wouldn’t recommend just walking down the street with one, unless you’re planning to go Michael Douglas in Falling Down.

The Tippmann A-5 gets my endorsement amongst the paintball gun litter and is an absolute must for scenario play. This bad boy is tough and often referred to as the AK-47 of paintball guns. So, if you’re looking for you next marker or a annoying cat deterrent, the Tippmann A-5™ should be at the top of your list, if not the only one on it.

Cost: $250+ (depending on configuration) @ Tippmann | A5 Builder (very cool)
