Hello fellow Modders! I had a question about putting a longbow on an A5. I haven't seen any topics or parts list on the spec ops online store. I welcome any help or pics. And maybe another mod similar to the longbow. Thanks for any help.

Currently, there is no longbow modifcation designed to fit the A5. Any attempt to adapt existing longbow components for an A5 would be difficult at best, impossible at worst.

The only non-cyclone feed on an A5, to my knowledge, is the Qloader.

Something to think about is using the q-loader adapter for the A-5 and then attaching a home made stick feed to that. it would give you the overall look and function of the 20 round magazine, but on the side rather than the top. but using a tac cap would get the low-profile look and a lot more paint than any stick feed. also, they do sell a stock for the A-5 that looks just like the longbow air thru skeleton stock. take a look in the A-5 stocks and you can find it. stock throw on a flat top riser and holographic red dot and other than that, I cannot think of anything else that comes close to making an A-5 longbow.

I've said this a lot on the forums recently... If you want a true longbow for the A5, you need a few things. Some weaver rail, longbow receiver and mags, and some Jb weld. Take off the cyclone, and JB weld weaver rail on either side of the hole, then put the receiver on. (if the hole where the cyclone used to be isnt too big, i'm not sure...)

The reason Spec-Ops never made a longbow kit for the A5 is because its bulky and loud compared to other markers

That marker was a "one-off" done by Coroner for himself. Plenty of people asked him for it at the time but no go. I thought it was cool just like a lot of people did, but in all honesty the 30 round tac-cap is a much better idea. One of the selling points of the Longbow mags for the Tac One & Ion is the smaller profile. Adding the tac-cap to the Cyclone already does that by a large margin, no sense in permanently modding the receiver half to make it hardly any smaller. The wow factor would be the only reason to do it to an A-5. To mod it would be a couple hundred bucks w/ extra mags, or you could just spend $8 for a tac-cap. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

that one by the coroner was awesome! again thanks for all the input. I was mistaken about the gun, it turned out that my son wanted the longbow for his Ion. ...Ooops! ha! But just because I was told it would difficult to be done, I really want to try it now! ha! I was wandering around the q loader site and they have an adapter that mounts to the a-5 body. I'm thinking we could use that and somehow mod the feed tube to that.

i think your best bet would be a qloader put on your A5.
otherwise, you would have to go to hell and back to get a longbow mag on your A5.
