Lightbulb also think of..

Dont forget the spyders man... they are good too...
The only bad thing I have come across with the BLK dragun.. and thats the sear... it gets messed up fast..... you have to grind down a spyder sear... and replace the M3 sear with it. At least that was the fix it that M3 advised... dont know if they've fixed that or not. Other than that.. the maker rocks!

Its really your preference. Do you just want a solid blowback with a good hopper feeding system,a good constant rate of fire, good customer service, but yet do you wanna cough up the $$$ for one? Or do you want a cheap, electronic gun that you can upgrade and has an insane rate of fire? It depends on what you like, what kinda of ball do you play most of the time?

ya. the a-5 has this funky little piston assembly on the right side of the gun. it's just kinda out in the open and i bet it gets in the way, im not sure though cause ive never used one...here is a site that has an ok picture of what im talking about:

http://www.bp-usa.com/a_5.htm

oh, and those parts that are moving, they don't come with the a-5 if u didn't know.

Get the BD for speedball. I also believe that the A5 is too complex. The more parts there are, the more parts there are to break. You could get a dragun or save 15 and get an esprit. Either way, but then you could put some nice mods on it:
Gun 100
Cp One piece/J&J/Progressive: $40
Reloader: $45
BL Torp: $50
LP mods (drill VA, Mod Bolt, new valve: $25)

In my opinion, that's better than the A-5

Maybe he doesn't want a higher end gun, but rather likes the feel of a BD better than a BKO, Cocker or Rainmaker

I would run from the A-5.

Get a Spyder or clone(Black Dragun)

but if u have 300 to spend get a BKO for 260

A-5 with flatline.

I have a BD Sniper thats tricked out and I am seriously looking at puting the sniper as a backup and buying an A-5, just a better gun IMO. The thing is a tank, it takes alot to break one. Also if you start playing woodsball, everyone runs from flatline barrels :-)

I would say the A-5. Now, I may be a bias person because I have had a Dragun for a Year and after spending $50, two shipments 2 M3 and never a game when it didn't stop working on the 2nd or 3rd game.


Or just get and E-spyder.
