Products Used:
I own and use three other tippmann a5 and love them. It is the same gun only put in a body kit. The A5 is put into the body of the B5 with only a few alterations. The B5 takes the A5 to its limits and and the modification makes it the one that I will use as my primary paintball gun.
Marker Setup: I have the B5 bull pup. One quick thing, if you get the b5 and you want accessories, get everything right away. Only reason I Say that is because most of the accessories have to be put on or assembled when the gun is apart. I got The 2" right,left and bottom accessorie rail along with the 6" accessorie rail for the top. The rails fit tight and straight and tighten up with no play in them what so ever. I have the rear sling swivel which moves as needed. One of the parts that I really like and will push is the tactical folding foregrip. The foregrip folds and locks in tight when opened. It has no wiggle when opened or closed. Looks of the B5 are authentic because most of the parts are actually used by military or police forces. Its is almost like they made the gun to fit a lot of the parts and all that did was make it easier and more cost effective for the extra parts like the rails, grips and sling swivel. They have a couple of grips but the one that I really like is the wrap around grip. The grip fits good on the handle and very comfortable on the hand. I run with the flatline barrel on it because it keeps the size small and tight, good for cqc. I have a laser sight on the right side and works extremely well.
Strengths: Material for gun is strong and the board is super easy to change and operate.
Weaknesses: Gun needs to be disassembled everytime you want to put a new accessories on it.
Review: The assembly instructions that you get with the B5 are very well written and the gun assembles easily as long as follow the instructions. The electronic board is water resistant and very easy to operate and change as you need it. There is many different barrel types you can use but I really like the flatline. All of the rails are placed in good spots and sit solid. Once you have everything put together it is very solid. Solid is a word I use a lot because the gun is just that, solid. I had one small rattle in the handle . The rattle is the solinoid rod. I asked them and they are checking on it. It does not rattle enough to give me away and you really have to shake it hard to get it to rattle. They at first thought it might be the original nut on the A5 for the foregrip. I tightened up the nut with a bolt and could still here the rattle. I have fired over 800 shots through it with no ball breaks or problems with the gun. I have heard that the B5 does not fit well over newer A5 But I bought a brand spanking new A5 and it fits like a glove
Conclusion: LOVE the gun. I have eight other guns and will probably end up using this one most of the time. It is solid works well and easy to use. The tech support is one of the best that I have dealt with and they really work with you. If any one asks I will recommend the B5 without hesitation.
