Review: Thank god they have a quality replacement hopper for the A-5! The R-5 is near perfect, the only problem i have had with it was it was it had some side to side play, which i fixed with some boxer's grip tape, now it fits snugly.

Unlike the stock hopper the R-5 is not a paint target! Which was my only complaint about the A-5, the deflection tech is not just a marketing campaign it works. I cant count the number of times i have seen paint glance off the hopper and save me from gettin tagged. The improved ammo storage is also a major plus, after all you can never carry enough paint these days!

Conclusion: I highly reccomend you get this product, its a must have for any A-5 Owner, its one of the cheapest upgrades you can get for you A-5.

I give it a 9 only becuase of the the issue i had with side to side wobble.
