Right now I'm trying to fix my A-5 for reasons of not wanting to drive 100 miles to get it fixed. What happened is I was playing and the cheap stock was using ended up breaking and I lost some parts two of which are the Guide Pin and Drive Spring. I'm not exactly sure if I'm missing more and I find it hard to tell if I am. Could someone help me in finding out for sure what I need to order? Here is a pic not that good one one but hopefully someone can tell.

i dont know where anyone lives thats 100 miles from civilization but they paintball. how can he paintball when hes 100 miles away? it makes no sense, so i figured it was a hyperbole, and hes just lazy. so i said my best advice to him, which was to take it to someone who knows what theyre doing. it is hard to fix a gun just by looking at pictures and recommending things.

montana, texsas, idaho, mississippi...just off the top of my head, get away from the coasts and stuff becomes a lot more spread out, nearest place to me is now 20 miles or so, ever since the economy bombed its gotten further and further from my house and into more populated places, there used to be a corse a half mile from my house

but the point of the post was not to argue weather there are or are not painball shops within 100 miles, the point is he is not driving to one and is ordering parts online but needs to know whats missing

blainards-id open up the manual and lay the parts you have out 1 by 1 and look at the parts list on the manual, print out that page and cross off the parts one by one as you pull them out of the marker, that way whatever you dont have will be left on the parts list

yeah, in addition to what trbo said about the manual, tippmanns (and most other markers) have fold outs that show exactly the order the pieces are put into the gun. kinda like the gun floats in the middle, and the parts come out one by one in order. google it.
