This is a really good product for the A-5. Since the A-5's hopper get in the way of the sight rail you must have to get some kind off Rail offset to use any dot scops, scopes, and sights. Plus it also allows you to use the orginal sights on the A-5 As well. I have the dot scope act as my long range sight and the A-5's sight as my short range sight. However there are a couple of problems. When you mount the rail to the gun its at a slight angle leaning in to the gun. The other problem is cosmetic. They didn't finish the metal before they powdercoated it so you will see lines and scratches in the paint from the metal being scratched and it poorly deburred.
What the hell are you talking about? thats what I love about my A5 is that the hopper ISNT in the way.. thats always been a big upside for Tippmann's is that the elbow is off to the side and not a powerfeed
