I like it overall, All I can really say is that you could get the Tippmann a5/x7 low profile hopper which looks a bit cooler IMO. You could also connect the remote line adaptor right to the tombstone if you think you might like that.

The round capacity is nice, but it also makes for a bigger target, which can be bad depending on where you play, how you play, and gametype, but again the round capacity is also nice. I know you already spent the money on the current setup, so I am not telling you to flat out replace stuff, but have you looked at the BT offset rail? it would put the scope offset to the left, which would make it easier to look down with your mask on. Is that weaver or picatinny?

i have my own woods field that i play on when people come to play so its not too bad of a target, its never been hit actually and we play some speed games on part of the course thats more compact and have more bunkers and also longer hunt games plus im a pretty sneaky and quiet guy and also fast. I have plans for the offset actually which is why the scope is off right now, it was becoming too much of a hassle. I also have an apex and proto barrel i switch in and out from but very rarely because the flatline i have has great accuracy. and its just weaver.

Well you pretty much have it figured out then, good deal I could not quite tell if that barrel was a flatline, I have never seen that shroud before, its pretty cool.

Thats the way to do it, If I actually had money right now, I would probably end up with some pretty crazy Tippys, lol. I prefer Tippys because I love Milsim, but I shoot MECHANICAL Spyders as well, because they shoot well and are extremely easy to work on. I am not really into electric guns, batterys running out.. that and full auto takes away from the game IMO.

yeah, i usually only run semi on my a-5 and im soon going to swap it out for an RT because i like the feel of them honestly. I had one on my 98 i had and loved it. Spyders are pretty awesome too, i have a few friends who use them and they are nice and accurate and shoot a pretty decent distance.

Well yes, your Tippmann A5 looks nice and all... but what about the perfomance upgrades?
