I sold my VF Tactical Autococker, and bought a second A-5.
Review: I used to paintball years ago, and recently decided to do it again. I did my research and decided a Autococker was theway to go.... Money being no object (yea right) I ran off and spent $800 o a new marker....I was happy with the way it looked and felt, but I had to wait the week out to field test it......
I got to our local outdoor field, and The VF Tactical Autococker got everyones attention, but I was still yet to use it..... During the first game it was pretty good, I had fun, didn't break any balls, but it wasn't GREAT.....There was a team of guys with A-5's set up to look like M-16's, and they were killing everyone.... I played the rest of the day wondering if those guys were that good, or if their markers helped them out..... The next week I read up on the A-5's. I wondered how a 300 dollar gun could compete,if not beat a 800-1000 dollar marker.... Well I bought one. I immediately bought a barrel, and a kit from OPSGEAR to make it look mean.... The next weekend I went to the same field, with the same group of guys, and I was amazed how now, I was a competitor !!!
IT MADE THE GAME SO MUCH MORE FUN!!!
I went home that night, put my autococker on EBAY, (sold it in a buy it now to some sucker) and bout a second A-5 with an E-GRIP.... I just can't tell you how good this gun is, and happy I am with it......

I hope this review helps some one out....
Conclusion: This is the Only gun to have.....15/10
Rating:
10 out of 10

As far as ur experience with autocockers go: They are not easy to use, they are not simple, they are not low maintenance, you MUST know what ur doing when ur using a cocker. In comparison Tippmann's are very easy to use but I feel that they do NOT hold a torch to an Autococker as far as versatility and performance are concerned.

why wouldnt you just keep your auto cocker for speedball and use your a-5 for woodsball and if money was no problem you should have just bought a dark ego
