This adapter allows you to mount any standard bottomline ASA or Drop Forward on your Tippmann A5. Since the bottom of the A5 grip is angled, this mount is also angled to even it out so you can get a nice, balanced drop forward attachment. This is another quality product from Lapco.
The Lapco Universal Mount is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Very high quality, fits like a glove, good customer support
I had to pay for it.
I have basically the exact opposite experience as the fellow below me. I paid $14 for this adapter and feel it was worth it due to the fact that I needed it, it feels good on the gun, and it fits like an absolute glove! I have no idea what's wrong with the other guy's adapter or gun, but it fits mine like Tippmann themselves made it. If you need a bottomline adapter block for your A5, this Lapco model is hard to beat. I honestly can't see there being a higher quality, better-fitting one besides this.
Don't go with the other brand adapters, pay the $3-4 more and get a high-quality product that will give you zero trouble.

DOES NOT LINE UP
Can potentially break your grip
It should be so simple. However, these aren't manufactured well (I dunno why) and when installing it I've heard a number of people say the same thing as I, it doesn't line up. Trying to screw it in, it like seperated my A5 grip. Go with the DOP mount, Lapco disappointed me with this one.
Get the dead on mount, this pos doesn't even line up. To Lapco: how hard can it be to take a few measurements before you start cranking these out?
Well if you want to mount anything under your A5's grip, this is the best product on the market. It fit my marker perfectly. Unlike some other designs, this one fits flush with the back of the frame leaving no gaps. It uses included 10/32 bottom line screws.
I like the design on the grip. There's really nothing extraordinary about the grip, but I do think it is the best one out there. As mentioned, it holds very well. I have never had a problem with it. The grip is also rounded, leaving no sharp edges to annoy you!
Again, for some reason it wobbles. Other than that it serves its purpose!

It does exactly what it says it will do
There isnt much to it but it does exactly what its supposed to do. The only trouble i had with mine was when i first got it and put it on it moved a little bit, all you have to do is tighten the screw holding it on and that problem is fixed. If you looking for a way to mount a drop or anything like that i would get this over the dead on, the dead on is smaller and will move around even if the screw is tight. I hear ppl say its heavy? you cant feal the difference once its on the gun.
What can you say about it, it does just what it says it will do. I recommend this to anyone wanting to mount something on their grip. Better than dead on.

-lines up properly
-COMES WITH SCREWS!
-A little heavy for its appearance
I actually really like this product. I put it on and it fit just right; no wobble, tight, bottom is level. It also comes with screws so one would not need to run out to Home Depot or sumthing and search for new ones. The only weak point that this has is that it feels a little heavy when held individually.
Pretty good, sturdy Lapco product. I would recommend this to anyone that has an A-5 and wishes to purchase a drop forward for his/her gun. However, it does seem a little heavy for its size so it gets a 9.
Fits real well
"Flows" with the grip
When I got this I new I had made the right choice. For I almost bought the other cheaper one out there, thats like half price. This peice perfectly with no wooble or any kind of movement, its the same size of the grip, so its doesnt look awkward on there. Buy the Lapco version, and you wont be disapointed.
- tight fit
- fits the whole grip (unlike the Dead On Adapter)
- no wobble or jiggle
- more expensive than the Dead On Adapter
I used this adapter to set up my female stabilizer on my A5. I dont know how some people gave it bad reviews other than on its price...its not wobbly at all. You just need to screw it in nice and tight and there is no wobble, plus it fits the entire grip. The Dead On one doesnt. What else is there to say about it. Get it if ur setting up a drop forward or something of that nature. Good product overall but expensive otherwise it would be a 10.
Good product. I dont know if its better than the Dead On one but i do know that it fits the entire grip and the Dead On one doesnt. Make your choice. This product does what its supposed to do.

quick, simple install
very strong product
My goal was to mount a female Palmer Stabilizer in a bottom line position. I have heard and read that the male Stabilizer can make a tight fit for large hands on the A-5. I choose the Lapco universal mount to get the job done. Install of the Lapco was a breeze. Use the small allen wrench that came with your A-5. Remove your stock parts. Place your new Lapco in the grip and hold it up to light to check for fit. Mine fit so well it looked like the hole in the Lapco had been drilled on the production line at Tippmann.
Tighten the allen screw back down, and your done. The fit was perfect, no wiggle even when I put some muscle into trying to get the mount to move. The screws in my Stabilizer mounting kit turned smoothly and snuggly into the Lapco mount. As an unexpected benefit the Lapco mount moved my bottle down an inch helping my 20oz. co2 clear my wrist and forearm.
IMO the Lapco universal mount is a quality product. It fit perfectly, and installed in less than 5 minutes. You could install this in about 60 seconds if you had a need to. The strengh of this product and quality of the threading will give you years of hassle free service.
A5 WITH RESPONSE TRIGGER , DOUBLE FINGER TRIGGER, 4500 PSI 70 ci CA tank, 14 inch boomstick,lapco universal mount, benchmark side drop forward
very sturdy. works well
none i can think of
basically for 17$ this alows u too hook up just about any drop forward. it is a big help for ur a5 and makes it feel more compat and not like a huge friggin rifle like the m98. ur can get other things but as far as im concerned this is a great upgrade and i mean GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAT. EVEN THOUGH I STILL NEED TO GET A BENCHMARK CO2 ADAPTER SINCE THE DROP FORWARD IS MENT FOR NITRO DUCTS
have this be ur last upgrade , it will be money well spent
