cyclone feed parts, not upgrades

Hello, this is my first time on this forum. I am trying to find a palce to buy replacement parts for the A-5 cyclone feed. I am missing the bottom feeder plate on mine and cant find one on ebay or anywhere on google. The only option i have come across is to buy a whole new system. Any help? Thanks!

Poke through the manual for your A-5, which should be available online, find the part and part number, call Tippmann, order the part, done.

You can also try Tippmannparts.com. They sell just about everything.

Just for clarification, Tippmann and Tippmannparts.com are separate entities.

Tippmannparts.com is the site that you're gonna wanna keep in your bookmarks if you plan on owning a Tippmann. They literally have everything you need to assemble any Tippmann model manufactured within the last ten years, one piece at a time. And when I say everything, I mean everything, right down to that red rubber o-ring on your safety.

If Tippmann is still manufacturing and selling your marker, there's always a good chance that they will just replace it for you free of charge, but you've got to call them on the phone. My experience is that they are usually pretty cold and unforgiving if you email them, but if you call them you usually get what you need. But eventually Tippmann will no longer manufacture your marker, at which time the only place you'll be able to find non-upgradable stuff (like that bottom cover for the cyclone you're looking for) is Tippmannparts.com.

They did the same thing to me when I emailed them about getting new screws for my old 98c. They told me I HAD to buy them at the tippmann parts website. I now normally try to avoid having to order from them and try to fix the problem on my own at first like the tombstone, tombstone spring, guide pen, etc. You'll be amazed how far those little parts can fly.

If you do have to buy from tippmann then, as some advice, if you don't order past like $10 or something, they will add a $4 handling fee (thats not including shipping). When I bought my screws for my 98c, I also went ahead and bought a barrel condom and a small cheap replacement kit for the future.

You can never have enough tank o-rings. And having a set of burst discs around is always a good idea. There's almost always some stupid little crap that you don't exactly need, but it would be really have. Bottle thread protectors, for instance; you don't have any idea how much peace of mind just having those things on there can give you.
