Great customer service from the company. Sent the right screws when I contacted them.
Couple screws missing (see above), wrong length
Screws seem to be good products. Give the A-5 a 2 tone sheen now. The stock screws were already wearing out so im glad I replaced them. 3 missing screws from the package, had to contact the company to send them out. Sent the screws to me soon. Come in a nice lil plastic tumbler that you can store the old screws & pieces in. You have to open to case to put in the front grip nut, but its not that hard.
Now for the bad: After some time of rebuilding & cleaning my a-5, ive come to the conclusion: I dont like this screw kit. The screws are shorter than stock for the most part, and its a real pain in the rear to tighten the screws back up. According to air-tipps, they said its cause theres so much paint built up on the a-5 screw holes, that you have to trim it out for the screws to fit. I dont know, I think these screws are a lil to short to be used. Theyre in the gun now, but next time i take apart & rebuild the a-5, theyre coming out, and the stock ones are going back in. Im gonna use the stainless ones for the self tapping screws (cyclone feeder, grip, handle etc, but the body itself theyre coming off.
Not really worth the work & hassle to get them in, and tell air-tipps what they left out of the kit.

Tippmann A-5 with egrip, flatline, lapco aluminum foregrip, stainless screw set. 114/4500 tank with Centerflag Hyperflow, Kapp DZ3 cradle.
Looks, convencience, they don't rust.
After dealing with the corrosion and the stock screws are so prone to developing, I decided to give the Air Tipps stainless screw set a try. I probably could have picked up the same parts locally for less but the convenience is definately worth it to me. I don't have the time or desire to drive around trying to match up all the screws. Everything was included in a nice little container and installation was a snap. No problems with missing or incorrect pieces. The velocity screw is particularly nice. It's got some kind of coating on it and won't work loose like the stock one can. It looks pretty slick once installed and adds a nice touch to the look of the marker.
A5, E-grip, Flatline, JCS Double Trigger, Remote, 6 pt Adjustable Stock, Bolt, Power Tube, Polished Internals(best mod yet),
Stainless Steel, very nice.
Some of the bolts aren't flush w/ the gun body.
Um, the person i got it from was on ebay, best customer service i've had by far, was incredible.
As far as the kit goes, it's good & all, has a few un-needed/used screws & all but, who cares, more spare. And like i said in weaknesses, some of them aren't flush, and none of the lock-nuts are flush w/ the gun either.
Get them, why not. Espically if your stock bolts have taken a crap.
Maybe its me but they seem to strip easy, i had gto drill 3 out
They look good on the gun, they won't rust. But I seemed to strip them alot. I never had that problem with the regular screws. Cheap enough to try out and see how they look on the gun, just don't tighten them as much as the regular ones.
Cheap enough.......why not.
