1 year
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5
OPSGEAR 14" Barrel
OPSGEAR G-36C Folding Stock
Strengths: Cheap
Better grip depending on how you like to fire
Weaknesses: Screws onto Barrel
Front Sight is not lined with A-5
Review: I bought this when I first got my A-5, and have used it in one or two games. I found that the grip underneath was too far forwards to actually be of any use to me, and most of the time I actually used my Mag kit as a grip. Though this may just be me and my short arms...
The sight at the front of the Handguard is too high to lign up with the rear sight of the A-5, and this will also cause problem with any Optics you have if they're not mounted high enough above it.
The Hadnguard itself screws onto you barrel using two screws already inserted at the base of the handguard. If you want to take your barrel off you'll be unscrewing the handguard attached to it aswell. I had to put some tape over the end of my barrel to avoid to much damage to it if it ever slipped during a game (it didn't, though this is probably because of the tape and how much it was tightened.
Conclusion: A good solution if you MUST have an MP5 look-a-like marker and/or want a budget handguard to finish off your scenario marker. For tactical use it offers no pros at all, it's a handguard made for looks only.

If you want to sell yours, LePsycho, or if anyone else has one to sell or knows where to get one (as I can't find one on, please let me know. I'll automatically receive an e-mail from any replies to this thread. Thanks in advance.

So you can use any one inch di. barrel with this? Hmmm, it might be a okay place to start on a Mp44 homemade kit. Good to know.
