Upgrades:
APEX 2 barrel, stock barrel is terrable.
Low pressure, so you can get more than 500 shots per tank. But this marker WILL NOT run LP stock, especially because of the cyclone. So you will have to spend quite a bit of money getting there.
Strengths: reliable
upgradable
Milsim look
CYCLONE
Weaknesses: Not that great stock
GAS HOG!!!
Srock barrel is terrable
PLASTIC power tube and trigger
Review: good gun, rarely breaks a paintball, the cyclone feeding system really works and you don't need batteries. I have had it fail on me once because it needs lots of pressure and my tank was getting low so I had to pump the cyclone every shot, but there are mods to make it work off lower pressures. unlike my spyder I know this gun will load in a shot everey time. The gun is very upgradable but the 1st upgrade u need it the barrel, the stock barrel is one of the worst I've seen. My spyder has a better stock barrel, better efficiency, and it's all matal.

Edit: I am selling my A5 and got an electra to use instead :)
Conclusion: I reccomend it, this gun works. Nothing fancy, but it'll shoot paint reliably and will take a beating.

Great Review! Too many people give reviews on their own (modified and upgraded) A5 rather than an A5 out of the box. Kudos to you for writing an accurate review on a stock A5!
