Review: No upgrade is better than changing your gun to low pressure. First of all it is a lot more consistant than co2. And since your uses a lower system pressure that means less recoil, more control, better accuaracy, and a sound reduction.

The first A-5's had a soft metal sear whiched chewed up bolts. The new A-5's have the letter A under the cyclone feed below the patent. These guns have a hardened sear and pivot.

The only bad thing about this is taking apart the gun for cleaning. You have to take off the whole vertical adapter to open the gun, that means taking of the reg and bottom line too. And it would be nice if they could put a gauge on the side of the system instead of the bottom.
Conclusion: A must have for all Tippmann owners.
10 out of 10
