i never got the chance to upgrade it (see review) but everyone else has said flatline barrel so ill go with that. one good thing though would be a proper harness for your tank, dont try to jury rig something out of a vietnam- era surplus vest and pistol belt like i did.
Strengths: Remote air
Cyclone feed but thats on any a5
Weaknesses: Weight
Cant look down iron sights while wearing mask
Review: ok i got this gun mainly b/c everyone told me a5s were good guns, reliable and fairly accurate and i had enough money to go one step up and get a a5a2. i didnt mod my old a5 i bought a a5a2 direct from specops. i used it one time in a speedball field and it broke. while yes it was my mistake for using a gun designed specifically for woodsball on a speedball field the way it broke was still inexcusable. the oring came out of the valve and it seriously took me 2 months to figure out how to put it back in. once i fixed that i thought i was good to go and i took it out to a woodsball field(i learned my lesson) and it broke -again and this time i couldnt possibly fix it. imagine this your walking back from a game and you notice that your foregrip is a little wobbly so you think "no problem ill just tighten the screw" and you bust out your allen wrench and unscrew the grip and two pieces of the COMPOSITE ALUMINUM /CERAMICS RECIEVER fall in to your lap. i think a very loud WTF is in order. so that was the last time my a5a2 ever saw the field. i dont know what caused it but i cant help but think that the horizontal grip that replaced the vertical mp5 style grip is what caused it to break. there was also the thing about not being able to see down the iron sights with the mask on AND if you go to mount a red dot or other after market sight on the gun part of the hopper blocks your view. the only way to correct that is to A. deal with it or B. get a hopper offset which makes the front of the gun even more of a paint magnet. this gun is built like an assault rifle and inherits an assault rifles main flaw- its too big to use in any kind of close quarters combat. seriously unless youve got a good position lying prone with out any kind of obstructons in front of you youll be introuble. attempting any kind of rush with this gun is just suicide. unless youre a serious woodsball player dont get this gun.
Conclusion: I give this gun a 7 b/c it broke on me like it did. up until then it was pretty good but wasnt really what i was expecting.
7 out of 10
