Review: Spec Ops has been the lead producer of Tippmann Mods for a few years now, and it's only natural for them to design their own Tippmann marker. Well, they've out-done themselves on this one, with an air-through stock, sleek foregrip, and superior handling in the field I have to stand and applause them. Then, as if they hadn't done enough to create the perfect weapon for those true woodsballers out there, the digi-camoed and dura-coated the marker to it's core, the eye-gripping graphics will leave you in somewhat of a stunned coma or seizure, while the dura-coated finish will keep all that drool from coming out of your mouth and rusting the paint-job. Just Beautiful! If this isn't enough to get you to fork over cash for about ten of them then you don't know what true paintball is.
Conclusion: Get it, then get it again, and again, and again, until you are dirt-poor and can't afford anything, you live on the streets and you can't even buy paint or air to use it, but guess what? You'll regret nothing...

Is this a review or a marketing brochure?

Nothing about how it fires, how it stands up to temperature changes, how accurate it is, how reliable it is, how easy it is to field strip and clean…nothing.

I mean, it is one of the best looking A-5’s around (no question about that)…but this “review” gives absolutely NO information about the gun at all.

One last thing…”Period of Product Use” is 3 years? Has this gun even been out that long?

I agree with Wolvie here. You sound like the guy who does the voiceovers on all those TV infomercials. Are you an employee of Special Ops or something?

Wolvie is right. This review seems irrelavant to the A-5.

If you want an A-5 review, go to the A-5 page.

Well, I want a Spec Ops A-5A2 review.

This product listed is for the full reworked gun…not just the bolt-on pieces.

So, yeah, I want a review for the whole package…all the things I mentioned earlier.

Once more .... If you want an A-5 review then read about the A-5 ... His review was about how the mods from Special Ops worked on an A-5. There is nothing thatSpecial Ops does with this marker that would make it shoot any different from a stock A-5.

But you are right .... it does sound like a commercial .... and 3-years of use could mean he's used an A-5 for 3 years .... which is basically all a a-5a2 is ...

I try not to read to much into a review ... just use it as a general purchase tool. More reviews a product has the better results you get.

Umm... Commander isnt a specops employee.... Just a big buyer of their stuff :) (He buys everything of theirs..)

People who said
"If you want an A-5 review, go to the A-5 page."

Shut up...shut up now...

this is supposed to be a review on the A5A2, The barrel it comes with, foregrip, gas through stock, and how they all compliment the Tippmann A5.

WOLVIE,Thomas Catlin,ghoang, and NoBiEmAn, I'm With you...all the way....

in conclusion...

Don't type anything up if you have no idea what you're talking about.

I'm with everyone on here. What are you talking about. This isn't about the gun. Write a review on how the gun works.

does this guy think SP made this thing from scratch?

Writing a review for the gun would be stupid, its an A-5 people. If you want a review for the gun go to the A-5 reviews. The stock and foregrip and tombstone and stuff modify the A-5 alot but it cannot be considered a new gun. It still comes with stock barrel and bolt and everything, performance on the actual gun is stock. It does make it easier to play paintball but it doesn't help velocity spread or speed. You say this isn't a valid review, I say these aren't valid comments. If you just keep on saying "I want a real review" you will get nowhere, in fact, this is commonly known as whining. If this review is not good enough for you, right one yourself
