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.
This is an awesome system. I am very happy with it. I have tried the E-grip and like it but I enjoy this alot better. VERY VERY fast firing. Got to find that sweet spot. Totally adjustable Via Air. I dont like the idea of the hoses being in the open, but its fine
I recommend buying specially if you can get a deal like I did for it. If not I recommend (if you got the cash) the E-grip
Compressed Air w/ Lapco Dropforward
Uses a lot of paint (if you think that's a weakness)
I was skeptical when the person at my local paintball shop showed it to me. He let me test fire an A-5 with both CO2 and compressed air. I was sold, I bought it right there. I let him have it for a day so he could install it and dial it in for me.
When I played with if Saturday night, it was dialed in perfectly. I unleased a hellacious amount of paint. I rarely used a hopper before per game, now I was using a hopper plus two 140 round pods. I love the thing it makes a BIG difference.
One suggestion, just have an airsmith or a qualified person install it and let them dial it in!!!
I let my nephew use it for a few games and he is was amazed at how awesome the gun works.
You can use Nitro just don't believe all the negative hype.
If you wanna shoot faster than just the standard semi-auto buy it. I have no regrets! The gun rocks. And I did not chop any balls!
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
Tippmann A-5 w/ response trigger
14" 32 degrees whisper barrel
PMI pure energy 48ci 3000psi nitrogen tank
cyclone works very well with this product, shoots very fast, adjustable ROF
wastes alot of paint, it doesn't work well with nitro
well i got my A-5 with the response trigger built in it and it worked great! It really utilizes the power of the cyclone feed system. However, I recently changed from Co2 to nitro and I found it was harder to work the RT for some reason I don't really know. But it still is a great addition to the A-5.
I would definately recomend it for anyone who plans to get an A-5 or anyone who has a normal A-5 without RT. Anyone who intends to get an E-grip for the A-5 I would definately recommend to save 30$ and get a RT instead.
-CMI Drop Forward
Adjustable rate of fire.
The Tippmann A-5 RT is a great upgrade. I got it separately on my A-5.
The trigger works in a way similar to the e-grip. Instead of firing a certain number of balls like the e-grip, you can control how many you shoot with the RT without having to configure it. All you have to do is gently pull the trigger (not a light though though, a slight pull) and it will fire as long as you hold the trigger down. With the Cyclone feed, you will never see a ball break or double feed.
Changing the sensitivity of the RT is easy. When you buy the RT, is comes with a small screwdriver (You could fit about 20 in your pocket). You don't even need the screwdriver, just use your fingernail so you don't have to bring that around.
Installation is kind of a pain in the ass. You have to take apart almost the entire gun. I am a newbie at that so I had someone else do it for me. If you know paintball guns, then you will have no problem with the installation.
I'd say buy the RT. You'd save $50 if you planned on buying the e-grip.
Depending on how much you shoot, you'll need to buy paint.
A-5 with RT
16oz Co2 with SP on/off valve and anti-siphon
Fast rate of fire without the use of Electronics.
Does not work well when Co2 is low.
The R/T kit makes the a-5 an awesome marker! Puts the Cyclone Feed to work...really shows how well the Cyclone performs. The R/T keeps the A-5 shooting fast and reliable without the use of electronics...and not having to worry about batteries or frying circuits is a huge plus when playing out in the woods. The R/T is very easy to control, you can hold the trigger half way and get the full auto affect, or you can just as easily do single shots or small bursts. I'd highly recommend this upgrade for the A-5 users. Also, it's easy to adjust the rate of fire...just turn a little screw one way or the other to increase or decrease the ROF. This can easily be done using your fingernail, so there are no need for tools. GREAT UPGRADE!
I highly recommend this upgrade to the A-5, although i dont know how difficult it is to install because i ordered my A-5 with the R/T kit factory installed. But, i've heard it is very easy install. GREAT UPGRADE...high rate of fire, no batteries, tippmann durabiltity, and reliablilty!
tippmann a-5rt with 14in dye ulralite and a dead on foregrip.
it shoots very very fast it also has an highly accurate aiming system.
the one thing is the rt doesnt work that good on lw co2.
the tippmann a-5 is one of the greatest guns out there for the price. it is highly accurate with the aiming system. it is also lighter then you think it would be.another great ting is it can fire paintballs like maddness. it can shoot 15+ if yo turn up the rate of fire on the rt.the only thing bad about the a-5 is the rt doesnt work well with low co2 it also uses co2 like maddness. but otherwise it is a great gun. it can keep up wth all the expensive guns it can shoot just as fast and is durable.
overall i would recommend this gun to anyone. its the gun to buy and the rt is a must hae upgrade or the e-grip.
tippmann 98 custom
rebel 02 extreme electric w a evolution II hopper
GT commando II
Tippmann A-5 w/ Response trigger kit, 20 oz C02, and an A-5 solid stock
accurrate, fast, intimidating, cyclone feed system, and response trigger, fast ROF and its adjustible
plastic cocking bolt, mal-functing cyclone system when air gets low
first of all, this gun kicks butt. it is so accurrate with the stock barrell. i bet it would be even more accurrate with an upgraded barrell. the sighting system is a great sight... only it i could put it on my 22. mag. when you loosen up your trigger finger and pull the trigger a little bit, the gun will do a burst, depending on you air pressure to the response. the hopper holds about 220 balls. the one big draw back is that it only can shoot about 800+ shots per 20 oz bottle. lucky me i have a fill station so i can shoot all day... only if they could make a paintball maker station thingie. this gun is excelent for wooded play. it gets a little heavy, but that just gives you all the more reason to shoot more.
if you are playing paintball in wooded areas buy this gun...
