The B-5 bullpup mod for the A-5 has been developed with intensive player feedback over the course of many years. The B-5 will provide you with a significant tactical advantage over your opponent! If you've never tried a bullpup in paintball, now is your chance! You will be amazed.
The features of the B-5 are:
Includes an Ape rampage board
The B-5 accepts A-5 upgrades such as triggers, low pressure kits, grips, hopper mods, A-5 barrels, flatline, Apex. You name it!
Quick change battery compartment. Replace the battery by removing one pin. Battery is fully field swappable! Don't find yourself suck on the field with a dead battery again.
Field strip the B-5/A-5 by removing only two pins.
APE board is field legal and fire modes are be accessible via the side of the shoulder stock.
No need to worry about a little water or rain as the APE board is waterproof.
At 28 inches in length from the buttplate to the tip of the marker this mod significantly shortens the overall length of the A-5.
The B-5 does not require modification to the A-5. (it is optional)
The B-5 is built out of durable ballastic nylon not cheap plastic.
This B-5 package consists of two receiver halves, a rear buttplate, a APE Rampage Board, New hardened steel Sear Pin, E-sear tripper, a safety, instructions and the required nuts and bolts to assemble the B-5.
The Identity Crisis Paintball B-5 Bullpup Mod is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Strong, water resistant, cost effective, very tight profile, milsim, hi performance with minimum outlay
Those with long arms may find it a little TO tight. Use caution in assembly
If you are about to go milsim and have a vanilla A5, hands down this is money well spent. In the shroud is includeds a APE RAMPAGE board and a E trigger. Considering to cost of the alternatives, which I have done, It is some of the best money I have spent in paintball gear. USe some caution when assembling your A5 into the shroud, I originally cut the shroud out for the fore piece of the A5, three weeks later I cut the fore pice out with a dremel and then a hack saw (A5s are tough) which worked a little better. I do not think my A5 will ever come out of this shroud again except for season end cleaning. If you have problems the MILSIM forums and ICP have lots of FAQs to help out.. The performance of the included APE board was such that I retro fitted ALL of my other markers with it.
You will not regret buying this product, It is easily worth its price of $350
Quick change battery.
Did I mention Bullpup!
I got my B5 kit about 3 months ago. And I love it. It was very easy to put together and works great. I have had no problems at all. Its compact, since its a bullpup it feels light, and of course it looks just awesome. The guys at Identity Crisis did an amazing job on this. As they said it takes virtually every A5 mod that can be put on it. And it can still be field stripped easily. Not to mention 1 quick release pin and you can change the battery. This is an awesome MOD for the A5
I strongly reccomend this product. I know the price looks bad but if you look at what you get its really not bad. You get a E-grip with the APE board! It has a stock and shroud built in. And the look is amazing.
A-5, Custom 98, Sp-8, Spyders, automags,
This Is absolutely a Mil-sim marker, its body is unlike any other marker I have used, Closest thing to this is a small machine gun its great for corners
14" J&J ceramics
Lapco machine gun cooling shroud
x-7 hopper for cyclone
Sp-8 with stock and longbarrel kit
Rickochet apache hopper
Mac-Dev 68 ci 4500 psi
Solid, very small profile......lots see review
Pros - Tight profile, APE board = very fast rate of fire, built off of an a-5, Modable to the max.
Cons - A lot of people will see me with this gun at ok d-day and want to buy it. I won't be one of the few unique people any more.
Bottom line if you like tippmann and you want a gun that no one else has then get it. if you like being able to duck behind a bunker and have the snap shooting of a snub barrel but the accuracy of a 16" barrel get this gun.
Edit: Test fire- worked flawlessly very tight very fast enough said, because if you want to read Ape board and A-5 review you can.
Buy it buy it buy it you won't be sorry, just look at the support on their website, you post a question the answer is there in a matter of minutes. the manual they made has pictures wow what a thought. www.Identitycrisispaintball.com

BT4, they work about the same but the length is whats key
Phantom w/ vertical Co2 feed, 15 round mag w/holosight, hammerhead
BT4, CAR stock, E grip, rip clip, Hammerhead
98, Saw stock, EGG2, RAP4 Apex
ICP B-5, w/hammerhead
Short w/ a good board
I saw this thing at D-Day 08 at their tiny little booth, and was hooked on the spot. Since then I saved my nickels to get it. I ended up getting an A-5 that never been cleaned ever and the paint had been worn through but for eighty dollars and fifty cents I wasn't complaining much. I finally got the kit and immediately set upon getting it set up. A little tip: when you install it get a fresh 9v I took mine apart 6 times thinking the sear and solenoid weren't lined up right.
best thing about it is that it cuts the size by 3/4. My B-5 with my 16" Bangstikxx is shorter than my BT-4 with the 8.5"Sharktooth. Big advantage when your playing tight (especially in hyperball) The full-auto is nice but the reactive mode on the gun is quickly becoming my favorite. The length is also a bit of a weakness, It puts the cyclone feed right next to your face and you can't look straight down the marker. Get the X7 loader or the richochet to fix this.
Weaknesses are numerous but can be overcome easily. To start you art stuck with the A-5 and that gas hog they call the cyclone feed, which I'm not a big fan of. But thats my own opinion. 2nd its the back plate needs to be adjustably by like 3 in. Its fine for a guy that is 5'8" but its a little too short for me being 6'3" and finally you have to play remote with this. Now I like playing remote but remotes are finicky and have let me down. The only other weakness is the Price. $599 fully assembled, $325 A-5 not included and $175 A-5 and Electronics not included. If they'd lower the price on the full one by $200 they'd sell a billion of em.
