I would like to set up one of my A5s like these pepperball guns. I'm not entirely sure on the terminology of the parts needed, so I don't know what to search for.
My question is: What are the parts needed to set my marker up like this? If they are specialized or not commonly available, where can I find them?

Thanks in advance.

Quite honestly that only has a custom ASA and tank brackets to make it special.
Other than that it is a stock A5.

Never seen those two parts in the main stream paintball market however. Looks like they are made exclusivley for Pepperball Technologies Inc.

Would not be too hard to reverse engineer though. Not too sure you would be happy with how long a 13ci HPA tank lasts on an A5!

*edit- after down loading the spec sheet I can see that there is an On/off built into the horizontal ASA. The big problem would be the 90· adapter from the on/off to the tombstone.
Not to mention the practicallity of it. To remove the air tank you would need to remove the bracket, the tombstone adapter would then need to be pulled out with the tank all at once. Not a big deal for HPA users...but a 5,7 or 9 ounce CO2 tank would be more headache than practicle.

Pissed...well yes.
It would also be classified and Battery and you would be arrested.

PTI is claiming 160 shots out of the HPA tank on the m98...so you can figure a bit less for the A5. 100-130 I would hasten to guess.

You'd think the less than lethal industry would wise up by now and use electropneumatic markers...

If they used even something like an ion they'd get way better gas effeciency...

For a pure tactical game I love this setups possiblities. Tac cap, small tank all things simple and since Ive got the A5 why not.

Looks almost like a palmers stabilizer is a bridge between the vert ASA and acutall tank.

God if I had the money and need I could definatly do some fun with this.

I downloded the picture and blew it up taking a good look.
There is a quarter turn inline on/off ASA, then a custom adapter that makes the 90·turn into the tombstone. That is the one real custom part that I have never seen before. Almost looks like it has the ability to be removed without pulling the tombstone and has a swivel capacity to it. Just an educated guess however.

The inline on/off and the tank braket are no trouble.
White Wolf sells a tank braket that would work great. Any air out the nose on/off ASA would work. Then you could just run macroline from the ASA to the stock A5 tombstone. No need for the PTI custom parts.

Looks like a remote line on/off is much cheaper at $10....then a couple macro elbows and a little line.
A double tank braket order from WWA is $60
13ci tank...$65

So if all you had was an A5 you could get into this setup in about ten minutes and less then $150 in new parts...less if you have a supply of odd stuff from years of playing like some of us!

Would that adapter that makes the 90' turn be something similar to this?

Similar, but it turns into the tombstone instead of a male ASA

Here, check it out by downloading this .pdf file http://www.pepperbal...et_11.06.09.pdf
Thatbis the TAC-700 Automatic. Zoom in on the tombstone area.
Pretty easy to see the parts...almost looks like they may hsve even used the stock tombstone and cutom made an adapter to run between that and the on\off.

A5s etc can be run on a 13ci cylinder, but there does need to be an understanding of the limits.

With my X7 on 13ci with tac cap for a night game a couple of years ago I got a fair number of shots (I cannot recall how many - somewhere a little below 150 sounds about right) however in the following morning game I found a particular shortfall.

When playing the night I maintained steadt single shots, but in the day at one point I needed to run up from a stream and out of the tree line through an open area. I think I had gone through most of one tac cap fill and made sure the tac cap was refilled, then ran forward with a degree of 'rapid fire' which quickly lost all my remaining air and I was empty by the time I crossed.

The best 'efficiency' was with single shots letting things recover between, rapid trigger pulls just drained air.
