E2 trigger, or race frame if you dont want to drill gun
big compressed air tank
new barrel, I getting all american but a PIPE system is best if you have the cash
Good feel, nice look, reliable.
Stock barrel, speed (good for mechanical in truth but slow compared to electronic)
Well i bought my X-5 and immediately scheduled a trip with my friends to the course. When i got there i got about 5 compliments on the gun immediately i mean this things beatiful. When i got to test velocity it shot great at 280 fps but the stock barrel wasn't making many points. so i put on an aftermarket barrel and this thing is dead accurate even with old paint. When i get my E2 frame and All-American barrel (and some decent paint) I will leave additional review.
I just wanted to add that i've spoken with ANS performance department like 5 times now and they have excellent customer service there even willing to do the customers support's job (there customer support group sucks).
I recently had problems with my ans X-5 the gun works part of the time but the trigger seems to be not coming all the way forward and even when you push it forward the velocities just not there (I believe I have a timing issue) so i'll most likely be sending my gun back to ANS and testing out the acclaimed customer service.
I am now having trouble with this gun when i pull the trigger it just locks backword and i have to press it forward to shoot but even then the balls only go about 20 feet. I believe this problem is timing or something to do with the bolt seems to work while dry firing but has tons of problems when balls are used. So for now il have to lowe my rating to a 6.
In conclusion i'd say this is a great mechanical marker and i would highly recomend it. Find a good deal though i got mine NIB on ebay for $350 with an evo 2 hopper an invision mask and a 20 oz. tank. Great customer service in there performance department.
6 out of 10

Ya i just got a new gun still have the x-5. Its a way better deal than E2 (I was looking at buying a race frame but the guy I was dealing with was such a jerk i decided to get that gun cost about the same and it's way nicer). I got a system x NME (alot like a timmy but cheaper and nicer most people with Timmies end up buying the parts from the NME like the WAS eyes and the WAS board).Itshoots 25bps and i got with compressed air tank and evo2 for only $480.

I had the same problem with my trigger sticking back. I had to replace the O-rings in my 3-way, lube the marker and make sure my LPR wasn't set too high. Give it a shot and hopefully it will fix your trigger stick problem.
