This kit contains the parts you need to install the GTA Inline Expansion Chamber on to your Tippmann A-5. The complete kit includes the expansion chamber, gasline, gasline fittings, Loctite thread sealant, and complete installation instructions.
The Tippmann A-5 Expansion Chamber Kit is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
This is a great way to get more use out of your C02 tank. I was able to get about 900 shots out of a 20 oz. C02 tank. It also keeps my velocity between 265 and 275 f.p.s. no problem, And my A-5 no longer freezes up in the winter:-)

Why would there be a weakness on air conservation?
When I first bought my A5 obviously I had to upgrade it a little. Since it is not a gun for speedball I opted not to run N2o on it. So the expansion chamber is a great way to hel extend the life of your Co2 tank. Also I took the front grip off because the expansion chamber can be used as a front grip and the gun just looked way to goofy with the two right next to each other.
Got about 1,300 shots with a 20 oz tank.
Shots were much more consistent.
My hose didn't fit.
Somewhat hard to install.
Overall I think this is a great product. You can see what I like about it above, so I am going to go into more detail on what I didn't like. First, the finnish. Not a huge deal, but is obviously not the same as the gun. It does still look good though. Nice and shiny. More importantly, the hose. I have not found any other people mention this, but for some reason, the hose mine came with was about half an inch too short. I do not know for sure because I did not install all of it. So until my dropforward comes, I am stuck with a longer hose that looks kind of wierd. However, I am hoping that with the addon of the dropforward, the gasline will fit. Finally, the installation. It was a pain in the ass for me. The chamber itself was easy, but the old elbow fitting was very hard to get off, and the new one was just as hard to get on. I got the old one off and then gave up. I took it to a local field who installed the rest for me.
Works well. Still freezes, but oh well. You also can't use and expansion chamber for nitrogen. You have to buy a regulator. Because of the gun being so long and heavy, it helps you balance the gun when you only have one free hand. Barely adds any weight at all(you can't really tell a difference). It's so big that it is almost right on the trigger frame. It's not too hard to install, but you'll have to get a new hose probably.
It's really good, because it helps balance and takes out liquid from C02
My consistance wasnt very good but its probley cuz its only about 20 deggres here.
Very impressed with this product! it saves alot of money on co2 this thing pays for itself! if you like saving money get this thing for sure! its pretty consistant kinda quieter. some ppl say its hard to install pfff i thought it was a brezze!! you just better know what ur doin...its not that hard!

This is a great expansion chamber that does its job very well. You will notice a difference in your constistency. For everyone crying about how hard it was to install, you need to man up. It's not that difficult at all. Get this Expansion chamber because TIppmann makes it and it is awesome.
This is a great expansion chamber that does its job very well. Get it.
14" Ultralite (soon to be flatline)
More shots and more consistancy
Its a cheap upgrade that i pretty much love for my gun. The design is pretty cool and i guess it would look pretty stupid with two front grips but with my car stock on it it looks sweet with the two grips. I am replacing the front grip with a fake clip pretty soon though.
For the performance it does exactly what it should do, its more consistant and i didnt notice it but now that i think about it i get a lot more shots out with it. I usually go through 4 or 5 10 minute games now instead of 2 or 3. Its a must have when using co2.
As for installation... Its okay, it really couldn't get much better. It was a little hard to get together and i had to use some of the air stopping tape stuff (no clue what its called) because it leaked a very little at first.
Get it! Its cheap and it works well! But you need a good stock on the back if u want it to look rlly cool.

This is well worth the buy if you ask me. It keeps your shots very consistent especially if you have the RT it pretty much makes the gun a full auto gun. The only problem I had was installing it.. I broke the stock elbow co2 thing that you have to take off to replace with the new one by accident. This is deff. a must buy upgrade for your Tippmann A-5 it is well worth it after the installation.

pure energy 45cu 3000psi air tank
Extremely egronomical front grip very comfortable
guess it works a bit better in the cold
Didn't reallyeffect the gun as much as i expected
I installed the x-chamber which took a few minutes as at the tme i was really out of shape so tightin all of the hoses and the elbow took a little help (me and my FORMERLY puny muscles)
i've used it ever since then and i can say that while my buddies cyclone feed co2 feed tube is freezing up and turning white mine is fine but besides that my gun is still severly affected by the cold and i don't get more shots per tank that i can really notice and unlike in some other persons review i really can tell when the co2 is almost out as my balls do almost drop out the barrel so yeah
I'm going to giv the x-chamber a 5 becasue i pretty much payed for a little less liquid co2 in my gun and an ecellent forgrip
You get more shots. a must for the gas gussling a-5
A pain to install
This is a must for the a-5.you get about 1/3 more shots out of your tank. you should get it if you have the right tools to install it."or your buddy does"besides that its a great product. you can go wrong with it if you have 50 dollars to spend.
This is a must for the a-5. you get more consistant shots and more shot per fill.I give it a 9 because of installation.Get it!!!!!!!!!!
