Review: This is probably the best thing i have ever seen and used, I have also read all the other reviews from the other people, and i decided to give it a shot and test it myself... This was the best idea i have ever had, not only are they wrong but its an incredible product.

The main problem people complain about is the fact that it is hard to take out your barrel and clean it mid game, yet this is an A-5 we are talking about, you can use a straight short squeegee and get it fixed in a second.

Yet my only main complaint (not the fault of specops) is that unless you use a barrel the stock length (and perfectly align the shroud) or a longer barrel, the paint doesnt always make it out of the shroud.

but on a whole the looks are incredible, the shroud can be taken apart after a tops of 3 minutes for me, and put bak together with another 3

this isnt a problem because between games i can clean everything out.

I LOVE THIS THING BUY IT and dont listen to them about the shorty shroud because that elminates the whole purpose of it looking like the SD MP5,
Conclusion: LOVE IT i feel it is a very strong product and very good design, the only flaw is one made by the consumer for having too short of a barrel and not having a straight shot squeegee

MAJOR EDIT!!!!!!: i have been playing with this for a while and after my last game i
decided to do something about the field strip ability of this thing, so I
made a very simple barely noticible mod to it and now its just as
field strippable as unscrewing the barrel, and it is still as sturdy as it
was before
just go to and go to the forums and search for tippmann A-5 SD shroud mod
