What to buy?

I just did a little side work and made about $300. I have an A-5 with a flatline and use c02. I was thinking about getting hpa tank but I'm not sure if it's worth $200. I plan on playing mostly woodsball so I was wondering what else I could get to upgrade. Any ideas? Thanks.

Already have the double trigger. Probably the best & cheapest upgrade.

A stock and a remote would be nice. Just get a good remote...becuase i got a cheap one for about 35 bucks from Pure Energy and its broke already.

But if u have a good remote, buttpack for pods and co2 tank thats a good upgrade. Stocks are nice too for aiming especially needed for Flatlines becuase u have to shoot straight with them.

I recommend a 68/4500 HPA tank. And take the other hundred and get a response trigger.

Flatline, R/T, Drop Forward.

dont waste your time on stocks.

you'll need an adapter for the R/T

Is the R/T legal at public fields? Also what adapter would I need? What should I look for or look out for with a HPA tank?

the R/T more than likely isn't field legal.

youll need a R/T + Cylone Feed adapter. Google it, you can find them almost anywhere.

shop around. fiber wrapped would be the best, but it depends on how much you want to spend.

So far I picked up an expansion chamber and an E-Grip. I can't see dropping $200 on an hpa tank just yet. I just started playing and I haven't noticed any problems from co2 yet. I was thinking about getting a folding stock, has anyone found a real strong one or can someone recommened one? Also who makes the best remotes and can you get them in different lengths? Thanks for the help.

Get a R/T, or E-grip but dont bother getting a stock it is a waste of money I just use my tank as a stock.

Yeah Stocks are a waste. Tank makes the best stocks, check out my milsim 98 in my signature.

Get a pack to haul the HPA on your pack with like 4 pods, a remote, and a 72/3000 steel HPA tank. The tank will be cheaper b\c its steel (I think just over $100), but its ok b\c it'll be around your waist instead of weighing down your gun. The pack can be found on like ebay or some stores with the pods for like $20, and then the remote will be another $40 roughly.

Get a sling, best thing, its great when walking about or inbetween games, or when you need to fill your hopper.

Get a three point sling with a quick release, one bukle will allow the sling to come off in less then 1 sec, the other changes the 3 pt sling to a 2 pt in a manor of 1 sec. Look to spend 15-24 on a good one, then head over to your fav gun store or walmart and buy a uncle mikes sling kit for rifles, buy one set with the size swivel you need. Now the package will come with a wood screw and a metal screw. Only thing is you need two metal screws so you will have to buy one seperate. Now you have a nice military sling to go with your a-5, and it will free up your hands.

I would also vote for a remote/stock if you like remotes
