All it needs is a barrel.


If you really want to dump a lot of money into your A5 here is the truly great A5 shopping list:

- new barrel J&J, Lapco, PPS brass...really anything but the stock barrel.
- Egrip
- If you are using the Egrip get the Cyclone mods and lightning rod made by TechT for your Cyclone to actually keep up.
- HPA if you can get it
- PPS Stabilizer if you are using CO2

Don't bother wasting a penny on bolts or powertubes they don't actually help and some even hurt your performance likewise avoid the low pressure kit. Keep in mind that even after fully upgrading your A5 it still won't be as good as a midrange electro or even used high end which you could have bought for the same price.

Id agree with all of the above, but if your into the mil sim kinda stuff you cant go wrong with a A-5. has the most customization options then any other.

The tippman stock barrel is worth little more then a giant tube to snort cocaine out of. so a new barrel should be your first upgrade.
