Products Used:
Stock A-5 Power Tube I guess
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5; Lapco 8" Big Shot, Lapco Suppressor, R/T, Polished Internals, RVA, Dark Horizons Hammer, Lapco DF, Double Trigger

Pro/Carbine ... You would not believe it anyways
Strengths: The front bolt does slide very well
Weaknesses: It kills you marker ! Tippmann does not recommend using this in your A-5
Review: This product just sucks. First, the power tube is extremely tight and does not slide in easy. Second, you end up scratching up the internals and third, it leaks like there is no tomorrow.

I installed the tube and could not figure out for the life of me why I was leaking out half of my CO2 tanks from the tombstone. Well, Tippmann wanted me to send it to them and they ended up pulling out the thing and stating that they seriously do not recommend you installing these into your A-5. I guess that when the part is made, the tolerance is off just enough to cause the tombstone to leak.

Conclusion: You are better off with the stock. Save your money and keep the stock tube.

The powertube barely touches your tombstone the only way you leak air around your tombstone is the O ring between the tombstone and the hammer needs replaced or oiled the tombstone fits in a groove that is on your hammer not the powertube
