Give your Tippmann A5 the power of the RT Kit. Just like the Model 98 RT Kit, this kit will give your gun a full auto effect. Once installed, you will be able to adjust the rate of fire that your A5 can output. Your trigger will have a ''sweet spot'' in the middle of its pull.
The Tippmann A-5 Response Trigger is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I have used fully automatic electronic triggers and they don't match anywhere near as good as the Response Trigger for the Tippmann A-5.
Right now I have Tippmann A-5 with a Response Trigger being the only thing extra on it.
Pretty much automatic
You can go through a lot of paint
The Response Trigger for my Tippmann A-5 has helped me out alot in the wars I have been in with it. I've only been in 2 major wars with it but in my first war during the five rounds I played I managed to get 18 people out. I owe every single kill to the Response Trigger because it pulled through as I dove, shot, ran, and fell, without a single problem.
I recomend this product for the paintballers who want to provide heavy fire and push the trigger to it's limits.
reverse polarity trigger on a cocker, a little more advanceed.
tippmann a5 with double finger trigger and response trigger with a 14 inch boomstick, 4000psi 70ci stubby CA tank.
conserves gas and shoots anywhere from12 to pry 20 per second.
kinda takes a while to adjust the dial on the side to a comfortable setting
basically i think the a5 already shoots pretty PIMP but this is just a upgrade. my favorite part about the trigger is that it conserves gas VERY well. (depending on how u have the gas intake on the side at) , since it runs on excess gas. plus it doesnt break paint. as i sed though it makes ur gun shoot hella fast.
buy it for sure with the gun though cuz it saves u a good 10$ . its a great thing to have when ur being shot at by angels.
What can I say! You WILL go through a LOT of paint with this Response Trigger! There is no feeling in the world like taking an A-5 and pinning down and taking out players with Angels and Autocockers!
The moment you find that "sweet spot" and it seems that you are going full auto, you will get a lot of looks and you might get called to the side by the ref to tell you to turn off that "full auto". Just explain it! It's NOT full auto! LOL!
However, since some fields do NOT allow response triggers, I would suggest that you ask your field operator. You can "turn it off", but it will still be physically on the marker and all it will take is for some player to complain to the ref and you might wind up not being able to use it unless you remove the RT.
If you have an A-5, I would choose this upgrade and not the e-grip. NO battery to change/charge.
But be careful! I had to upgrade my 2 pod holder to a 4 pod holder because I got tired of walking off the field after a game to refill my pods and hopper! LOL
Tippmann A5 with RT and E-grip
8" Bigshot with Lapco Supressor
68/3000 Crossfire stubby tank
Pro-Team Collapsible Stock
GTA 2x Trigger
Psycho Ballistics Bullet Drop
Fast, Cool to use. Higher BPS then E-grip.
Uses more gas then e-grip. Can leak and freeze fingers.
I bought my RT installed on my tippmann a5, and it is a good upgrade for the price. Its was 70$ when I bought it and has a good FPS. Most people report between 15-17 BPS when tuned right, but with new internals a few have hit 20 BPS. Its faster then the E-grip(capped at 15 BPS), but it uses more gas, I got about 600 shots per 20oz Co2 with no expansion chambers or anything. If you plan on playing competitively I suggest buying E-grip instead, RT is not tourney legal most of the time. But with a few mods 16 BPS is easy, even though tuning for the perfect spot is hard.
Buy it if your low on cash or dont like electros. Great product.

tippmann A-5, with a response trigger, rear velocity adjuster, metal front grip, ACI 6 stage expantion chamber, on/off drop forward, double trigger, and a 2002 all american barrel with a silver freak front 12"
shoots very fast!!! like 15bps!!!! that good considering the E grip can only shoot 18bps.
you use more paintballs and maybe a little co2, but not that much more co2
i love the response trigger, it can shoot so fast, it has the sweet spot in the middle of the pull. this takes some getting used to when you first get it. when i was paintballing a few days ago, so kid with a semi spyder got so mad at me because i could shoot so much faster then him. i was laughing. some kid also had a fully auto spyder, but it broke like ever ball and he ended up only useing it in semi mode. so far i have only used the respose tirgger in one day of game, but i have shot it around the house alot, its so cool. i think that the $75 or what ever you pay for it is almost worth just the intimidation that you get out of it. i mean when i was paintballing everyone was like o man i want that kid on my team!!! it was funny.
buy it if you have the money, you could save up like $70-80 more and get the e-grip, but this is all i need. if you play in alot of tourniments with alot of pros that have like angles and shockers on a regular basis i guess you should just get the e-grip but its not all that much better, only 3bps, wooo like thats going to make you a hole lot better. ha ha
tippmann a-5 w/ rt
high rate of fire
doesnt break balls
takes alot of paint
i like the rt cause it can get you out of a hard spot when needed and you don't have to adjust the grip or anything. its very good and can hang with autocockers. if you want your tippmann to keep up with other high end guns get the rt. it works great and still wont chop balls at its high rate of fire.
i recommend it to anyone looking for an upgrade to increase your firepower for the a-5
98 custom w/ response trigger (a-5 is more reliable because there arent many chops)
A-5 w/ response trigger,
14 inch Dye Boomstick,
88 cubic inch 4500 psi crossfire nitro tank (close to 1500 shots)
It is very difficult to outshoot this gun and doesnt chop at all.
Becuase of the rate of fire...its easy to waste paint. that isnt a weakness.
The A-5 w/ the response trigger is a great product for a fairly good price.....all of these peope that are complaining about how it doesnt work on nitro/compressed air are wrong. Mine runs perfectly on nitro. I have tried to use co2 and there is no difference with the rate of fire.
Someone also said that some tourneys wont allow the response trigger.... Thats WRONG!!! you can turn the response trigger off....
Overall this is an excellent gun....and more reliable than a cheap electro gun..ive put over 2500 rounds through my a5 and havent choppped one ball yet...
I would reccomend this gun to anyone who has the money and doesnt want to spend 600 on a gun.... you can get the response trigger installed for 270 bux....

My friend just bought a new pirhana that had the electric trigger set up, so i was a little intimidated by it, semi vs. auto. So i went and looked at prices and the RT was cheaper than E-Grip so thats what i got. It takes a little bit of time to install but not to bad. The thing i love is i can still shoot it Semi, but when my friends are hiding behind a big bush or a tree, all i need to do is squeeze that trigger down and watch the paint fly. Now if that just doesnt make a person feel good when they can tag someone behind a tree, I dont know what would.
I would definitely look into all the options as far as E-Grip vs. RT, with the RT ive noticed a considerable amount of gas use with it, and thats my own misuse of power, but its definitely a good product.
INSANE ROF, 900rpm=15rps, don't have to replace batteries.
Tendency to use a lot of paint, not allowed in some tourneys.
My first impression of this was, WHOAH. a simple squeeze of the trigger and I had rattled off about 5 rounds. I was impressed. easily capable of full auto, which is good for me in the scenario games i like to play. Those who say it makes your gun a "gas hog" are incorrect. It appears to because you are shooting a lot faster than normal, but the gun gets the same amount of shots from a Co2 bottle. It only uses EXCESS gas to reset the piston behind the trigger. The gun itself(a-5) is a gas hog, (about 500 shots from a 9-ounce bottle!) but, where I play, I get free air refills all day for $10, so not really a big deal to me, anyways.
I would reccomend this product to anyone who plays scenario-type games, and has easy access to paint and air refills. Worth every penny IMHO. Does excactly what it says it will do(with Co2, which is what Tippmann designs most of their guns to run off of..)which is why I give it a perfect 10.
Increases gas consumption, can make you a little trigger happy
The RT kit increases the rate of fire of an A-5 from a decent speed to a ridiculous speed. Very simple to install and adjust and very fun to use. EXTREMELY FAST. Only thing I didn't like was it made your gas effiency go down the hole... Plus it makes you spend a hell of a lot more on paint and all.
Nothing's more fun though than hitting that sweetspot in game, just slowly pull the trigger back until the balls start flying... It's great.
Combine the RT with the flatline and it's pure insanity...
Highly recommended. Don't buy unless you have the cash to spend on paint though.
