Review: When I bought this gun online I couldn't wait for it to come.
As I opened it out of the box it glistened in the sunlight like an angel ( not the gun ) was trying to steal it because it looked so cool.
I didn't get to test it out until that weekend.
Friday night came around, my best buddy and I were shooting Mountain Dew and A&W Root Beer cans. He had a Custom 98 with a flatline, I had my completely stock A-5. He has been paintballing more than me and he hit 1 out of 9 cans. Me the rookie took aim hit the remaining 4 missing only one from 80 feet away. We set them up again he shot, I shot, he shot, I shot and so on and so forth, I hit all 5, he hit none. The reason it is nine cans is because one can flew up and went in the water and we didn't want to get it.

This gun is amazing, it is accurate with a stock 8 1/2 inch barrel, fast shooting, I was getting 16 bps stock!!!

•• Gun ••
It is an amazing peice of mechanical genius. It has a great everything about it. The bolts, the response the re-cocking it's all paradise. Although I was a little skeptic of the loose Cyclone CO2 chamber thing however. It seems like it could break off if it got snagged on something, but that is the only downside about the body. The body of the gun has a great durable finish on it also, and the shiny, silver TIPPMANN *A-5* really accents it too.

•• Barrel ••
The stock micro-honed 8 1/2 inch barrel is great. 8/10 for accuracy, but not so awkwardly long like those sniper barrels, but than again whatever floats your boat, if you want dead on accuracy get a 12-14 inch barrel. (come on guys a 21inch barrel is a little over kill, can I get a woot woot)

•• Cyclone Feed System ••
This is one of the most ingenious things about the gun. It holds 5 balls ready to fire. It spins to load balls as fast as you pull the trigger. My buddy and I went through a 2000 case and it didn't chop a ball once, ever, never ever. This system can load balls faster than you need them.

•• Other ••
The sights on this gun are great too. You can adjust it to be a wider square for a faster more general aim or to a smaller square for more kill hots but a bit longer to aim.
The gun comes with all the tools you need to adjust the velocity, parts etc.
You can also field strip it with no tools, (tip: don't do it outside, You WILL lose parts, do it on a table in the garage or something)
There are also so many different ways to customize it.
Conclusion: I would recommend this gun for anybody who loves every kind of paintball, it's great for woodsball, speedball anything. Its for newby's to pro's. It is extremly customizable.
I give it a 9.9999/10. I loved it, you probably will too. And if you are thinking of getting one DO IT RIGHT NOW, GET IT, GO BUY IT, SELL YOUR CAR ,YOUR TV IT IS SWEET!!!
