Review: Besides a new Barrell this should be your 1st upgrade. E-grip + Cyclone = " SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND" This will help you get just about everything you can out of the A-5. (5) varieties of shooting speed. If you can't find one to make you a good competitor on the field you need to sell your A-5 and stick with squirt guns and playing socom 3 on PS2.

It could be a little pricey for you people who still make $7 an hour at work. But even you can save up for it. Must have....must have......must have.

Most places $125 - $ can find one online for $99

...did i say it's a must have.

1. SEMI AUTO - Fires 1 shot for each Trigger Pull.

2. AUTO RESPONSE - Fires 1 shot for each pull and release of trigger.

3.(3) SHOT - DUH!, 3 shot burst when trigger is held or if trigger is release b4 3 shot cycle is complete.

4. FULL AUTO - Fires whole time while trigger is held.

5. TURBO - Fires 1 shot for each pull of trigger until the time between trigger pulls is below .25 seconds - then it goes 1 shot for each pull or release of trigger.

. . . . thats 5 reasons to buy it

Doesn't use CO2, THAT MEANS more air for your Cyclone Feed, Damn 9 volt batteries are over priced - but fit right in your pocket (5 finger discount).

Make sure u have a strong battery b4 u hit the field, easier to change an A-5 then a Mod 98 on the field. It should only take a minute or 2. Practice changing it fast when your sitting home watching reruns of "HAPPY DAYS". Worst comes to worst carry your old trigger on till you get the time u need to properly change your battery (If possible).


I believe they have to versions of the E-Grip. Older ones need a small screwdriver for selecting fire rate and turn counterclockwise to slow the rate, or clock wise to increase. Then there is another hole near the finger grip that selects "FIRE MODE" by turning with screwdriver, and the e-grip turns on when u pull the trigger. Then turns off after not using for 10 minutes.

The E-grip I have you push a little button and hold for few seconds till the green light is lite under the button. The you push the button to select "FIRE MODE".

Conclusion: - Just Buy It, most efficient way to spend $99 for the A-5.
- Now just learn how to use your gun.
- I know guys that spent close to $1000 on a gun and get blow away by very little modified tippman 98's. You just need to learn your gun and don't be fooled by unnecessary modification. I'm not saying don't buy stuff like a Laser Sight, because they look cool, i got one. But don't depend on them. Practice on squirrels or your neighbors dog just learn what your gun can and can't do. If you can hit a squirrel running up a tree aguy trying to run behind a bunker isa breeze.
