The Tippmann A-5™ Stealth Marker is top of the line. Its patented Cyclone® Feed System links the feeder sprocket to the air system, giving it the power to unleash a fury of balls as fast as you can fire them. The Tippmann A-5™ Stealth Marker also includes a collapsible stock kit, the patented Flatline™ Barrel attachment, which creates backspin for longer, straighter shots, and a remote hoseline attachment. It can also be completely stripped and reassembled in the field in 60 seconds - without tools.
With its all aluminum die cast receiver and extra-sturdy black finish, the Tippmann A-5™ Stealth Marker is not only high end, but also one of the toughest markers available. Other features include a shock-absorbing end cap for reduced wear and recoil; front-cocking knob, which allows for a fully enclosed receiver; and a 200-round wide-mouth hopper. In addition, it can be upgraded with many different accessories including, but not limited to, double trigger, Response™ Trigger System (grip not included), E-Grip, low pressure kit and expansion chamber kit. It’s fully-compatible for CO2, compressed air, or nitrogen, and is completely customizable for enhanced performance
The Tippmann A-5 Stealth is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I used to have a small orion but it does not even compare with the Tippmann A-5
Tipmann marker with car stock remote line flatline and anti-chop bolt.
I would probably buy an expansion chamber
Very good aim and range with the flatline.
Cyclone feeder very effective in preventing chopping,
Little bit heavy when first start to use it
Can be hard on air.
The tippmann ha improved my game immensley since I got it. I am able to pick off guys with one shot with the flatline. If you add the stock it only increases your aim because it holds the steadier. I would recommend an expnsion chamber thogh because it caan be hard on air. I don't think you would need to buy an electronic trigger because it shoots just as fst as you can pull the trigger. Another upgrad I would recommend woul be a scope, it combined with the flatline would make a deadly combination. It is bit heavy when you first get it but you get used to it really fast.
Overall I would recommend this product for even the more serious paintballers, it is a very good gun with very little chopping. Great for begginners and vetrans.

Cyclone feed system is by far the best!
LOUD report from barrel
Need kit to use a drop forward.
I bought this gun because Tippmann improved on all of the 98's flaws and I really enjoyed my 98. It is a great gun and becomes even better with response trigger or the WAS board.
This gun is awesome for suppressive fire! You can duck heads from a mile away while your teammates move into better positions. This gun sounds almost exactly like a real automatic rifle on full auto. It scares people into hiding with its loudness and range.
I am probably going to keep it around for those games when I want to play a little further back and just give cover fire. Other games are left up to my SP-8(way more accurate).
The cyclone feed system is the best thing out there right now. Tippmann should modify and market this system for every other gun. Nothing comes close! I have ran at least 20 cases of all types of paint through this gun and NEVER chopped a single ball!
Great Mil-Sim/scenario/Woodsball gun with lasting durability Tippmann is famous for!
It is a good gun and will be for as long as you own it. Great price. If you shop around, you might even get one for less than $175(no flatline). I give it a 9 only because it comes with a Flatline. I bet this gun with the WAS board and a Freak barrel system would serve as a great speedball gun too. It has speed and a great feeding mechanism.

APE Board Egrip
9" OPSGear shroud
8" Lapco Fake supr
16" J&J Cerm Barrel and Flatline
Smoked ricochet hopper
30 Swat Force Red Dot site (yes it works) w/ offsite rail
3 point sling
Dead On Power Tube and Bolt upgrade
Palmer Inline Regulator w/ remote line (maybe the best upgrade)
Anything but the stock barrel
Love the gun! Even stock its great, but if you have the money put the upgrades on it and make it awsome!
Cyclone, it works like a champ never once chopped a ball.
Maintance is pretty easy on this thing, but becareful out in the field and have replacement parts ready because you will lose something. One thing, I think the insides need to be machined better. I polished the insides because they felt really rough.
The Flatline is loud and I had some issues with cheaper paint (Monster balls) breaking in the barrel, but my friend has fired the same paint and worked fine for him. It cleans itself out pretty good.
Remote line, its nice to get the weight off the gun when your hiking up and down hills and climbing over everything.
Durable, i've seen guys drop, bang ect.. Still fire.
Milsim upgrades, uh Special OPS, OPS Gear.. They kick rear...
Price, Stock its a good gun for the price. Add upgrades to it it becomes even better and can hold up with other top notch markers out there.
Stock hopper has the big flat surface on the front and begs to be hit, I got the ricochet hopper.
Stock barrel is bla, but not bad if you don't have the budget.
Stock WAS Board Egrip, had problems with bounce and getting stuck in full auto mode, save yourself time and upgrade to APE board if you have that problem.
A+++, just polish the insides, upgrade the barrel, hopper and go to a APE Egrip. $105 later you have a great marker.
