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. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase it new.

Tippmann a-5 w/response trigger
20 oz c02
Fast Fast Fast
Chop sometimes, also not legal at most tournies
ok well...the rt makes the a-5 really fast and works perfectly, but i find that the balls chop some (not in the cyclone but when leaving the barrel) when I use the response to shoot a nice steady stream of paint...iv used different kinds of paint and it seems to happen with all of them.
Overall i would reccomend the response trigger system for the a-5 unless u plan to enter some tournies, then they will make u turn it off. But if u dont plan to enter any tournies this is a great upgrade, i give it a 9.
Tippmann A-5 with responce trigger
Can change from auto and semi so you do not waste lots of paint.
Sometimes you can over shot a player.
The responce trigger is a good to me because it is oley around 100.00 dollars another problem is that in could weather it will stop working. The other good thing is that when you are running you can switch from auto and semi very ez. Another hard thing is if you get it and need to put it on you should really go to a store because itis HARD and there are no batterys to bother with.
Good deal get it and if you do you should get it on th A-5 to keep up with it

14" Ultralite (soon to be flatline)
Rate of Fire
Fine tuning, no dbl trigger
I was not pleased with this trigger when i first got it, i bought it with a dbl trigger hoping to up the speed...... bad idea
The trigger is nice after i fine tuned it for about a week of messing around with different configurations. The installation isn't too bad, if you don't mind taking apart your entire gun but i was fine with it. You CANNOT get the $20 double trigger with this gun, it just blows the sweet spot off and it just was so bad for me... I am going to get the J & J grip with the blade trigger, hopefully that works better.
It takes a little getting used to such as fine tuning it, for a tip, don't turn it all the way up because the piston will reset the trigger before the bolt even come back and it will not be full auto, a good suggestion is to turn it all the way down and turn it up slowly until you find the right spot. The only problem i have with it is that it was hard to tune for me, for a while i had it at a 3 round burst then i decided to tune it again.
I really like the response trigger, its a good upgrade for the gun. The A-5 rox but it jus takes a lot of upgrading and tuning and testing over and over until you get it just perfect, awsome product, completely meets what i wanted it to do.
68 CU 4500 PSI Crossfire Nitro (High Pressure)
14 inch Sniper Barrel
Excellent BPS increase
Gives a great increase in firepower
Hard to install
I purchased this seeing that it was much cheaper than the E-Grip only to end up using the E-Grip anyways. After having to goto the store to have this installed the BPS and sheer firepower of my gun dramatically increased. ALTHOUGH, at the time I was using CO2 (whoops, big mistake) and ended up wearing down the stryker and sear on my gun so I switched to Compressed Air and I had no problems but now have the E-Grip.
Tippmann A5 with RT, polished internals, Stealth barrel and 68cubic inch HPA or 20oz CO2
ANS GX4 with standard barrel, Revy 12v Hopper and 68cubic inch HPA
ANS GXE with Evil pipe, Halo B with Victory board and Angel Air 1.1ltr
When adjusted right there it's great with the A5
Expensive in UK, no spare seals in kit
Fitted to the A5 in about 45 mins and the instructions were very clear with plenty of diagrams.
Took a while to adjust and I'm still not convinced that I have the right set up right. I'll have to speak to some of the other RT A5 people next time I go out. Other A5 users can find that position and then the marker just sounds like a full auto machine pistol (some marshals don't like that though).
No significant differnece in gas usage but the longest its been used in one session was probably 30 mins and 600 shots from the HPA tank. If you are playing longer games there might be a differnce.
If you have this set up right personally I cant see the point in spending a lot more on the Electro model.
A must do upgrade for the A5. Either buy a marker with it fitted or do this right after you have changed the standard barrel.
Tippmann A-5, E-Grip, Flatline, Hyper Star bolt, Polished Internals, DOP Drop Forward with on/off, DOP Grip Adapter, Crossfire 68/3000
Price, not that expensive for a trigger system with its capabilities.
Hard to use if you dont have a steady finger.
The Reponse Trigger is a good product. Although I dont have the patience to tune it to make it work efficiently. Trying to find a sweetspot is a pain in the ass for someone like me. Then when you finally do find your sweetspot you have to worry about your air pressure changing that changes the sweetspot again. A true pain for CO2 users. Okay so now for the good, when you do find that sweetspot your ROF (rate of fire)is insane. A true improvement over trying to pull the trigger as fast as you can. Showing off that you can find a sweetspot and make it work shows true skill and probably makes you a better player.
For the price I say get one and teach yourself how to use it. For me the Response was just a prelude to an E-grip which I now have and love. I started playing Scenario ball which is why I got the A5 to begin with. But now I have started playing more Speedball which requires higher rates of fire and the E-grip gives me that no matter what the situation. Eventhough the Response is a great product I'd say get the E-grip and save yourself some difficulty trying to get the rates of fire you really want.
Tippmann A5 W/ Flatline and R/T and A Core ZX Pistol
speed of the trigger without having to do much work
The Tippmann Reactive Trigger (Response Trigger) is awesome. If you own a Tippmann it is a must ecspecially if you like to shoot a lot. With this accsesory you will spit out a lot more paint as fast as your A5 will load it and you don't have to do any work at all. The pressure of your finger will fire each shot, it is a little hard to get used to, but once you do you will be really glad you bought it. If you have some extra cash go get one and get it installed buy a pro, you won't regret it and it can't hurt you it can only help. Great Product for tippmann A5, cause your cyclone needs to do it's job which it does.
If you have the money, buy one you won't regret it.
hard to adjust first time, then you can set it easily,
This thing is amazing get it, kind of annoying to install when getting it separatly, so buy it factory installed. If u dont have an expansion chamber GET ONE! cus i almost got frostbite and froze my finger off the first time i used it. the bps is amazing when you get it the fastest! if u had the stock trigger like i had, just to let you know this trigger is the greates upgrade for the a5 besides a barrel.
awesome, amazing, get it!

Tippmann Flatline Barrel
J&J ceramic 12 inch
SHOOTS REALLY REALLY FAST
WONT BREAK ANY PAINT WITH IT
wITH THE RESPONSE TRIGGER I CAN SHOOT REALLY REALLY FAST AND PROBABLY SHOOT ABOUT 10 TO 12 BALLS PER SECOND AND ALL THE BALLS WILL BE ACCURATE IF YOU HAVE A GOOD BARREL. HAVEING THE RESPONSE TRIGGER AND A GOOD BARREL YOU CAN HIT SOMEONE ABOUT 10 TIMES. WITH THE RESPONSE AND A GOOD BARREL YOUR GUN WILL BE A BEAST. IF YOU HAVE AN A-5 YOU NEED TO HAVE RESPONSE.
THE RESPONSE TRIGGER, AFTER A BARREL, IS THE BEST UPGRADE FOR THE A-5. YOU SHOULDNT HAVE AN A-5 WITHOUT THE RESPONSE TRIGGER.
A bit expensive, but helps the marker reach its potential.
This is what makes the cyclone feed worth it. The response trigger really improves ROF. It does require some dialing in, but this simply requires turning a small screw on the side of the marker.
To me the trigger seems more of a "burst" of shots. When the marker is fired, a small amount of the Co2 travels a mirco line to a cylinoid that "resets" the trigger. Thus the high rof. There is a sweet spot that allows you to fire fast, however it is not pulling all the way back for full auto! It does require some getting use to. Get a double trigger to help control it.
I don't see as much of an advantage on the 98 custom, but I can see the benefit for both it and the A-5.
Also consider an E-grip if that suits you better. I do like the fact that the response is purely mechanical and doesn't require batteries. Also its a tippmann and that means rain, sun, snow, or tsunami. With the response weather isn't a worry.
Definately worth it on the A-5. E-Grip is also an option.
