Older Tippmann A5


Just purchase an older Tippmann A5, I am guessing it is older as the tank on the gun expired in 2009.

I bought the gun for $10, didn't know what I was buying, one of those deals I just couldn't say no to, took it home, took it apart, gave it a good cleaning and went out and played 5 hours of paintball on Sunday with no issues.

Gun worked fine, found my shots to be all over the place, could have been me but from what I have seen so far one of the better upgrades for Tippmann guns is the barrel. Will probably try to find a J&J Ceramic.

Is there anything else I should do to this gun?

First I would like to mention I am just a rec player, if I make it out 10 times over the summer that's lots so I probably won't spend lots of money.

leave it stock and go have fun. that's the beauty of a tipman, so long as it holds air all you need is some oil and it's normally good to go.
