Tippmann A-5 w/response trigger
Special Ops A-5 air-thru SAW stock
Air-thru system is great
Insanely diificult to apply foregrip
Hard to fit mask on the stock
I got this from Special Ops paintball not long after getting my new A-5.
It looks awesome, and its refreshing to see a stock different from all the M4 style stocks everybody has these days. When I brought this to the field i got a lot of complements and some people couldn't even recognize it was an A-5.
But the foregrip was a huge pain in the ass. After trying to put it on for a good two hours, I brought it to the local pro shop to see what they could do. Alas, it was to no avail as I saw the guy do the same things I did eventually gave up.
Then I brought it to the field and as a last resort, I gave it to the guy there. And yet again he did the same thing in the same order and failed like the previous couple attempts.
See, the problem with the foregrip is that you must apply it on top of the supplied air line. Once you figure out how to reposition the tombstone so that the line faces away from the trigger you have to somehow jam the foregrip on top of it. Even the instructions described this part as difficult, but didnt say much to help. As far as I -or any of the aforementioned people who have given this a shot- can tell is that there is no way to do this without modifying some part in some way.
Awesome looks, not so easy assembly. That foregrip REALLY pissed me off, but if you think you can do it, buy this stock.
wow i was going to buy an air thru stock but it seems like such a hassle. Do you have to change the gun in any way to put the line through, i heard you have to file the hole down to an ark to fit it though, and are there any instructional videos on how to do this.
You said you have to put the foregrip on top of the air line. how do you do that.
I probably will buy it if i figure out i can put it on.
