Tippmann A-5 questions simple as reading title
Posted 05 November 2007 - 07:41 PM
1. if i upgrade an A-5 to broadsword spec, how much would the A-5 A-2 kit cost? air thru-stock
2. And if i did the mods myself, could i send it back to spec ops for a duracoat finish?
3. Which hopper? APP 450 rd hopper? or the jumbo 330 rd hopper?
could i get some second opinions?

Anyways, here goes:
1) It depends on exactly what you want on your A-5 but generally speaking its: $30 for the foregrip, $100 for a flatline barrel, and around $90-$140 for an air-through stock depending on the exact one you want. If you really feel like laying down the paint you can get an e-grip for another $100. Total comes to around $350 give or take some.
2) To my knowledge yes you can, you can also do it yourself or have some other place do it for you. There might be a local shop close to where you live capable of doing such a task.
3) Depends on how much you shoot and how much you want to carry on your marker. If your paranoid of reloading you can go for a larger hopper. Play with what you have before you decide. Yourself is the best judge on this one.

Yes, you can assemble the kit yourself, its not that involved if you have a rotary tool and have some basic skill in operating it. The process would entail getting the marker and kit, making the mods required, assemble it and assure everything is right and functioning, disassembling it again sending it to Spec Ops for paint, reassembling it when it returns and again testing it for full function.
I prefer to run with the stock hopper and carry the extra paint. Nothing makes more noise than 100 paintballs rolling about in a 450 rd hopper.
Hope this helped.
