Review: I've been playing paintball for several years now, and just now I am starting to come into my own position of what my friends call the "Paint Demon." In scenario games I use roughly 700-1200 rounds of paint a game and I don't get kills that often. I use supressive fire while my allies move to better cover to take out the enemies. With a standard trigger I can pump out around 8-11bps with very little effort, which is an accomplishment considering how heavy the trigger pull is on the A-5. But now, with the response trigger I'm pumping out between 13-15bps, sending out a varitable wall of paint at my unprepared foes.

The Tippmann A-5 is a loud gun, but when you add the response trigger and an unported (Makes it shoot louder) barrel to the mix, you create a whole new fear factor on the field. I've actually had people come to me and say "I nearly s--- myself when I heard your gun start to shoot, and you weren't even aiming at me!" Needless to say, that got a laugh out of me and soon a whole variety of names and comparisons to action film characters were tacked onto me. I was called Rambo, Demon, Master Chief (Not my favorite comparison), Bob the Allmighty Paintball Wizard (My friend was drunk when we were playing), and my favorite, the guy with the machine gun.

This mod for your gun is actually good enough to compare to electronic triggers. It's not as fast as some of the low pressure gun systems out there that pump out 20-50bps, but it's far more reliable. I haven't had my RT break down on me in the middle of a game like I've had many of my electronic guns do. Another plus is you don't need batteries.
Conclusion: I recommend this product to any owner of the Tippmann A-5 marker. It's a very good mod for those who like to lay paint and keep your enemies heads down. It uses extra air so you may want to invest in a larger tank to keep up with its voracious appetite. This trigger is fast and more reliable than nearly every Electric gun out there.
