Strengths: High rate of fire
Weaknesses: Takes some attention to detail to grind this puppy down.
Review: Had a response trigger on my A5 for a while but when I switched to HPA and did some work on my A5, I found the attention required to acheive a worthwile ROF was too much to spare in a firefight. I went ahead and grabbed a double trigger and put on the double trigger firestorm crank. Took an evening at the grindstone to get this thing set up so I could comfortably slip one finger in for semi-firing under the main body of the crank mounted on the top leg of the trigger. Also had to shave down the tab a bit. However, now that that's all out of the way, this thing thunders on the field. A slow and steady turn on the crank is needed to fully realize the ROF you can acheive. This thing will scare people into calling themselves out before you hit them (happened twice last week). Remember, most peeps are used to a quiet hiss from an electro marker, but an A5 sounds like a cannon. A high ROF backed by that sound is just damn intimidating. Would highly recommend a stock in order to set the marker in to the shoulder to allow the left hand to grab the foregrip, and the right hand to work the crank.
Conclusion: Great product, requires a little A5 experience to fully appreciate this little beast, but sure as hell rocks out!
