Review: Ive owned Spyders over the last several years, and theyve done their jobs but theyve also given me some minor and MAJOR problems as well. I recently sold my Spyder MR2 setup and bought a used Tippmann A5 w/ Response Trigger on Craigslist and I LOVE IT. Ive fired a lot of markers, including some VERY expensive speedball guns and yeah, the speedball guns are tiny and lightweight, but the A5 is just AWESOME!

Ive fired thousands of rounds through my marker already and not 1 single problem so far. Ive also Upgraded it a lot (See my setup above) and the upgrades do pay off...

This marker is so reliable and strong. Not to mention my response trigger setup is 100% waterproof. My brother didnt believe me so I fully submerged my gun in my swimming pool and fired it full auto, pulled it out and not 1 problem!

I could go on and on and on about this gun... but just take my review and so many others into account and youll know you cant go wrong with a Tippmann A5
Conclusion: Buy it, this is the best Milsim marker ever!

If you are recommending upgrades for the gun, you obviously see a need for them. If the gun needs upgrades to perform how you want it to, it does not deserve a rating of 10. A rating of 10 is for something that literally is perfect out of the box. By your own review, The A5 is not perfect out of the box. Your review is on your modified A5, not one out of the box. This is misleading.
