Standard A5

I've got an A5 straight out the box and was wondering what upgrades to get. At the minute Im using a friends CP 12" One piece, and Ive got a 4500psi 1.1 litre Pure Energy air tank. Nothing else.

That's fine as is
If you want your own barrel, look into the J&J Ceramic barrel, great barrel for the price

Save up the rest of your money for paintballs and field fee's, and a new gun down the road

Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.

Alright, thanks. I'll definately get the barrel. I've just gone and done a few test shots in my garden and Im not keen on the way the tank sits so am going to get a remote and have the tank in my pack. When I get one can I plug it straight into where the tank goes now or do I get rid of the tombstone and plug in where that was?

Well i believe that the remote line just screws on because all tanks have same threads so you can have the remote line connected to the gun and the tank in your pack. I dint understand what you meant by getting rid of the tombstone and plugging it in where that was??

I wouldn't waste any money on a Flatline they don't even come close to living up to the hype.

I heard the flatline gives range but the fps is so low you wont get breaks I would get proformance upgrades (bolt, regulator or even expansion chamber, spring kit etc.) and a j&j barrel with the money, if your serious about the A5. I had one, I like it for scenario/milsim (No Batteries).
