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.
This 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.
