Nothing wrong with stock interals

In that case, polish the stock internals. At least smooth out the parts of the receiver the internals are in contact with.
But there are no aftermarket internals for a Tippmann really worth it IMO - if you have a Tippmann, keep the internals stock.
Exception goes to the cyclone -- Upgrade the ratchet when you can to avoid the cheap part that always breaks.

aluminum powertubes, response triggers, ape boards, vortex mods (for cyclone), qev's, 1/4 inch hoses from cyclone to body, expansion chambers, regulators, polished internals, and TLC can turn an average marker into a sweet shootin machine. other parts however like aftermarket bolts, aftermarket hammers, RVA's, LPK's, andsome other miscellaneous parts' effectiveness are a little debatable. some i havent tried, but most i have. usually the better deal seems to be trading plastic parts for metal ones, especially the cyclone internals and the powertubes.
sometimes certain internals can mess with others. but i can personally say that stock isnt always the best way to go. sometimes it is.

Also, I don't consider an RVA an internal, though I suppose if one did I could see value in it.
Aluminum power tubes offer nothing that the stock plastic ones do, unless your intent is to dump liquid CO2 inside your marker.

You seem to think that "polished internals" are something you buy. Nah homes, you D.I.Y. that one.
Aside from that, the rest of my A5 internals on the power tube are stock. I bought a metal rachet (TechT I think) for the Cyclone after I managed to have 2 break in one scenario.

i might try out the TechT spring kit for my tpx, see if i can actually get off 4 magazines in 1 co2, that would be a load of win sauce if i can get that to happen (i only have 4 mags at the moment)
i already put in a aftermarket cyclone ratchet, but i honestly dont think an entire case has gone through it yet. my a5 has mainly been a back up/loaner till now.. i plan on using it more and more since ive put some money towards upgrades for it..
although before i hit the next scenario game with it im gonna get the techt vortex mod for it, and HOPEFULLY a barrel kit as well
i dont really see a point in gutting a marker and putting in all these after market things in it before you even get a feel for it, use it for a season or so.. and start making a list of things you think it could use some improvements on.

Only replace the powertube if you break your stock one (did that twice). Bolt upgrades are useless as are hammer upgrades. LPK internals are nice, but finicky...never got my cyclone to work with that LPK either...LOL

For my own point, I did do the D.I.Y Polished internals via 000 steel wool. But it will shoot a paintball regardless so no, its not needed. just something I wanted done.
