6 months
Marker Setup: A-5
R-5 Hopper
Lapco 45* Offset
42mm Red Dot
Strengths: Great for Fine Tunning FPS in addtion to the FVA
Compatible with the JCS Stocks
Weaknesses: None really
Review: This is a nice (and relatively) inexpensive addtion for the A-5. Granted the marker already has a FVA (forward velocity adjuster) on it...but you can consider the FVA to be a general tuning of the FPS of the marker, and the RVA (rear velocity adjuster) to be the fine tuning.

Another thing to consider is that the FVA uses airflow (by inserting or removing the FVA's screw depth into the powertube) to adjust/control the FPS a paintball. However by disrupting the airflow, results in some turbulence. This can away from the consistency of the marker between shots. The RVA is based on adjusting the tension of the spring in the marker and doesn't impact the markers airflow. Just something to consider.

In addtion to the RVA itself you can also get some madman springs (w/ 3 different springs with different tensions) to play around with the RVA. With enough fine tuning this could save you some CO2 by not having to us more/less air to get the desired velocity...and instead, rely on the tension of the rear spring to make velocity adjustments.

the best part i think of the JCS RVA, is that its is compatible with the JCS Stocks. Most RVAs don't allow for the use of a rear stock at the same time. But the JCS RVA is built so that it will work with either the Voodoo, MP5 or Combat stocks from JCS.

Conclusion: could be better if i only didn't have to use tools to make adjustments....i always seem to be bumming allen wrenches off somebody else at the chronos = ( (my fault of course)

but if you want a well built and useful addtion for your A-5 i would reccomend the JCS RVA
