This is yet another great product from Tippmann/Special Ops that has been missing for quite awhile. The Flattop Rail allows A-5 owners to mount any optics on their marker. I used this rail to mount my NcSTAR Red Dot sight on my A-5. The quality of this rail is very nice because the entire rail is made of metal. The installation is very straight forward; just remove the Cyclone and front sight, slide the Flattop Rail on top the 3/8 inch rail and tighten the three set screws down. You will probably want to purchase either Tippmann's X7 Hopper or a Hopper Offset of some sort, so that your optics won't interfere with the A-5's standard hopper. I am using the Tippmann/Special Ops A-5 Stovepipe Hopper Offset, and have been having good results with it.

This rail is necessary if you want to mount a sight that requires the use of a picitany rail. The NcSTAR Red Dot sight, which is what I use, requires the picitany slots for the front screw to tighten the sight to the rail. If you're mounting a sight like the ADCO Sure Shot on an A-5 this rail isn't necessary. I had my ADCO Sure Shot mounted on my A-5 without this rail.
