Absolutely! The A5 went through a design change awhile ago. This is the newer grip with a selector switch safety. This newer A5 is referred to as the 2011 A5. So, Yes. The A5 2011 Mechanical grip shown below is backwards compatible with the pre 2011 A5 markers. This exact grip shown will also accept the response trigger kits but it will NOT accept the electronic boards. This grip is the mechanical version and does not have the battery compartment built in.
Take your TippmannA-5 paintball marker from fast to super fast with the Flasc Rip Clip Adapter. This product allows you to upgrade from the stock air-powered cyclone feed to the BT Rip Clip feed system easily and securely. The BT Rip Clip is battery powered and will feed paint into your marker at a blistering 20 balls per second, making sure you never have to shake and bake or upgrade your A-5 feed again.
Please note that installing this adapter requires the removal of the side hook on the body of your A-5. The BT Rip Clip is not included with this adapter, but any version of the Rip Clip will work great!
Custom Products recently added this 3″ tactical barrel to their multi-tip barrel system. When you add a short barrel like this to your Tippmann A5, you create a realistic sub-machinegun look. This barrel accepts any of the 7 different “flash supressor” tip designs. Imagine what the other side will think when they see this cool looking hand cannon on the field.
New for 2011, the A5 Flatline now includes a built-in, wide-mouth foregrip. Concealed within is a slightly curved barrel design which, using centrifugal force, places backspin on each shot. This enables paintballs to travel much longer distances, allowing you to outrange opponents while maintaining level, accurate shots. Increasing your marker’s effective range up to 250 feet, you maintain an additional 100 foot advantage over traditional barrel systems. Designed to benefit users in a variety of settings, the Flatline is ideal for snipers and back players.
The older style Tippman A5 RT has been discontinued and is no longer available. Replacing the old version, the New A-5 RT features a re-designed Cyclone Feed System, an 8.5 inch high-performance stone-honed barrel and several other features to improve the markers weight, maneuverability and ease-of-maintenance.
Designed for the original A5 Flatline Barrel System with a round, outer shroud, this camouflage neoprene cover is an effective way to decrease your markers visual profile. Consider combining this with an A5 hopper sound cover, also from APP, to further your markers visual concealment and sound reduction.
These adapters are a great way to make use of barrels not currently compatible with your marker…compatible. Incorporating a tighter diameter than other brands, the iSwitch creates a seal between the adapter and the marker’s front bolt O-ring. This increases consistency and performance without decreasing your marker’s accuracy or increasing ball breakage. Backwards compatible to all previously manufactured specifications and thread types, each is made of 100% aircraft grade aluminum and micro polished and treated through a custom anodizing process to ensure high performance and durability.
New for 2011, these A5s feature the HE E-Grip which allows users to fire up to 20 balls-per-second! There are five different special firing modes to choose from including Semi-auto, Auto-response, Full-auto, 3-shot bursts and Turbo. Its new external selector switch enables you to change from safe, to fire, to special firing modes on the fly. It has an improved, faster cyclone feed system and new barrel that is more accurate and quieter than the original. Some other added features are a larger, removable frontgrip, front sling mount, a lighter magnesium body and a lower-profile loader design.
Tippmann has added a huge assortment of features to their new A5s. To begin, they have redesigned the cyclone feed system to consistently feed up to 15 balls per second! A new 8.5 inch stone-honed barrel is more accurate and quieter than the original. Some other added features are a larger, removable frontgrip, front sling mount, a lighter magnesium body and a lower-profile loader design. The internal bore is widened for faster field stripping. The firing mode selector switch is now easier to use and the gasline is now black to improve its tactical appearance.
