As with any Tippmann and in fact any paintball gun, make sure the marker is properly cleaned and oiled. This solves many problems. Having said that, when a marker won’t stay cocked the first things to look at are the sear, bolt, and bolt oring.
The sear and bolt connect together to hold the bolt in the back position. If one of these is damaged or worn then they won’t connect correctly and the bolt can free cycle back and forth. If you have to replace one then you should probably replace the other at the same time.
The bolt / hammer oring is what seals between the bolt and the body of the gun. You need a good seal here so the excess air from the firing sequence can blow back the bolt to the back position to catch on the sear. If that oring is worn, broken, missing, etc then the air will escape around it and not give sufficient force to get the bolt back. If the oring is dry or swollen then it might be creating too much drag to allow the bolt to freely move back far enough.
So, rapid fire / won’t stay cocked: Check your rear bolt, sear, and rear bolt oring.
STILL having a problem? Check your velocity. On the first shot, do you get a good normal velocity shot off or is it low? If your gun is rapid firing AND your velocity on that first shot is low then you could have a cracked power tube. A cracked tube is similar to a bad rear bolt oring in that the air is escaping around to the wrong place rather than forcing the bolt back. A cracked tube will also cause low velocity as air going forward also escapes out the crack.
Symptom: rapid fire
1. Clean / Oil – check
2. Examine rear bolt and sear and power tube. Replace worn or cracked items and replace the rear bolt oring.

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.
Tippmann has just released some new colors of the popular Crossover XVR marker. They’re going to be a limited edition run so when they’re gone they’re gone. This is a great chance to upgrade to the top of the line Tippmann marker and get one that’ll be unique on the field too. The two new colors are Blue and Bronze. The color will be on the body, barrel and ASA with the grips and other accents colored black. This makes for a nicely balanced 2 tone paintball gun.
New Bronze and Blue Colors of the Tippmann Crossover XVR Paintball Marker
We should have both colors arriving at our TippmannParts warehouse this week or early next so we’re starting to take pre-orders for the new XVRs now.
Two of the old colors are being discontinued. The Red and Titanium are officially sold out from Tippmann. At the time of this post we have only 1 left of each of those colors so if you had your heart set on one of them then now’s the time to pull that trigger.
NopeNopeNope. The Tippmann Response Trigger (RT) Kit for X7‘s is designed for the original X7’s with blowback style operation. The newer X7 Phenom, sometimes just referred to as the Phenom, has a completely different type of valve system that is not compatible with how the RT kits work. If you want to upgrade your mechanical Phenom trigger you can convert it to electronic with an E-Grip kit.
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!
This conversion kit includes everything you need to convert a Tippmann 98 Custom from a regular hopper fed paintball gun to a magazine fed paintball gun. If you’ve looked at how the feed port is integrated in to the body then you can tell that this is no small feat. The kit includes a new body for the gun that puts the feed port under the gun instead of on the side. It also has the magazine mount and a 20 round magazine too. You can even upgrade your magazine to a large Box Magazine that mounts to to the same position underneath of the gun. The Nautilus Box magazine holds up to 200 rounds.
Both colored rails are made out of a military grade composite that won’t deform in high humidity or extreme (high or low) temperatures. So once you get your sight or scope sighted in, it’s going to stay in position.
The tactical stock is both a folding stock and a collapsible stock at the same time. Two folding tactical sights let you easily acquire your target and blast them away with one of five firing modes.
This full auto paintball gun has an electronic (egrip) trigger but also other modes like semi-auto, auto-response, and 3-shot burst. Tippmann has even thrown in an X7 magazine and shroud. All of these Tippmann X7 Mods are factory installed and test so you get a custom gun without the work of customizing your own gun.
These will be in stock at TippmannParts.com on Monday the 12th.
What is worse than missing an entire day of play due to one bad o-ring? This universal parts kit from Tippmann will keep your marker working perfectly and allow you to fix problems at the field. Arranged in individual sections with a clear plastic container, your parts are easy to locate and ready for travel.
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.
When installed and coupled with the included spring, the New Designz X7 Phenom Bolt shows significant increases in FPS. This means you can lower the Phenom’s operating pressure making it easier on paint and more efficient.
The face of the bolt has been redesigned as well, using a venturi style face, meaning more evenly distributed air around the paintball as it’s fired. The even distribution of air causes the ball to wiggle less in flight, helping to improve accuracy.
