hey guys, Just wondering what u guys think of the tippmann A-5 and the A-5 range. are they worth the money? Because they look like a serious piece of machinery. i've heard good things about the tippmann range and they look good. any one own a tippmann A-5 tell us how they go.
cheers ben.

for durability with performance tippmans rock.... i honestly believe you can buy one play paintball leave it in the back of your truck for 2 weeks till you play again put some air and paint in it and itll shoot the same it did when you bought it.... those things are made of stone man very good choice for a beginner gun

then i prolly would buy a used gun from the markers for sale section you can get you a nice medium grade marker with halo/empire and hpa tanks around 250-400 bucks man check into BKO or if you have a good paintball shop near by that are nice ppl you can go for an autococker...
