Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
3 months
Products Used:
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5 with Response Trigger
Lapco Snapshot Barrel Kit
Pure Energy 68cu 4500 psi Compressed Air
Strengths: Fully automatic without the e-grip, no batteries
Weaknesses: Eats up more paintballs?
Review: Ok so I have the response trigger with my A5 and 68/4500 air tank. It works really, really well, but I really don't think it will work as well with CO2. With CO2 it will probably just get the whole gun frozen because more CO2 is going to more parts of the gun. Upgrade to air before you get this.
I got mine from the factory, I didn't get the kit so it is put in well. If you are deciding to get an A5 and then upgrade with the kit, dont do it unless you are really sure of your mechanic skills! Repeat: Don't do it! Buy it factory made for a little better price and be assured of the quality. Okay. On to my review.

This response trigger allows you to shoot out full automatic without needing an e-grip. No batteries at all. So now your A-5 still only needs air and paintballs for the gun, Cyclone feed hopper, AND response trigger. How great is that? No worrying about batteries at all! You can change the feed on the response trigger, from 0 bps to 15 bps and anywhere in between. I usually set it about the same as someone walking the trigger as fast as they can, thats the highest you need (6-8 bps). It is easy to adjust on the field, there is a little round thing with a screw-like head, you can swivel it with your fingernail, you dont even need a screwdriver. It is awesome! My RT has worked really well, I dont know if it will work well on CO2, I have heard that it doesnt.

Also: It uses air that is left over from firing the paintball each time to push the piston forward and move your trigger. IT DOES NOT USE MORE AIR THAN USUAL.

It does not work when you have like 100 psi left (it shouldn't, I'm just saying that). You use more paintballs. I went from like 600-700 to 1200 in a half-day once I got this.
Conclusion: Buy it from the factory and it will be great. Good with compressed air/nitrogen. Easy to adjust the rate of fire on the field. Does not work with low air.
I love my response trigger!
