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.

Do not mess it or it will be hard to get it working again.
Since I have had the response trigger it has never actually fired like it is supposed to. Which is pull trigger, one shot, release trigger, one shot. Instead the response trigger just goes automatic or fires bursts, and I am fine with that. A great, fun upgrade to get and not expensive. I really liked the response trigger and a person debating whither to get this or the e-grip should defiantly get the response trigger instead because it is enough speed and saves you money. I am giving it a nine and not a ten because it goes automatic, nothing wrong with that just it dosen't do what it should, and you have to remove it to play in most tournaments.
If you want to have more funb with your A-5 and want to shoot faster this upgrade is a must.

I just got my own response trigger and I love it.
It only took me about 15 minutes to install, and worked right the first time.
I have mine tuned to fire at just over 8 BPS, and since i haven't quite got the knack of holding the sweet spot yet, the reponse trigger has basically converted my gun into a 5 round burst machine. The longest burst I managed to hold was about 20 balls, and it was very impressive. Rapid fire in non-electronic form is not to be underestimated. Since I tend to lay down a lot of suppressing fire when I play woodsball, this will save my fingers a lot of fatigue.
I did notice that this mod greatly increases the rate of freeze-up with CO2. My HPA tank is currently empty, so I haven't gotten to try it out yet, but running a single hopper through this gun about half emptied my CO2 tank (which tells me my shots per tank went from about 600 down to around 400, though I may have lost some due to leaks in the new fittings I'm using, as well as from a cracked o-ring), and came damn close to freezing it up in just over a minute.
This mod is great if you need to lay down a lot of paint and can let your accuracy suffer a little (the rapid fire tends to walk your aim up). It requires a bit of tuning and practice to use to its full potential, but if you just follow the instructions, it drops right in and you're good to go in under half an hour.
I recommend this mod highly to anyone who needs to shoot ropes, but if you're more interested in efficiency, save yourself the money. Also, if you're looking for efficiency, you're using the entirely wrong gun anyways. :)
I played with the stock A-5 trigger system for a few months and really wanted to get the ROF up. I have a huge dislike toward electronic trigger systems in markers and was pretty excited about the RT because it would keep my A-5 purerly mechanical.
After fiddling around with this install, which is fairly easy. I brought the A-5 outside and tuned it up. Once I found the "sweet spot" I loaded it up and let it rip.
Needless to say I was impressed and how much my ROF went up. After tunning it a bit more I saw an increase my ROF again.
This little mode is amazing. If you want to increase your ROF without bogging yourself down with pesky electronics than the RT is the choice for you.
Tippmann A5 with RT, CAR collapsible stock, 200 round hopper, tiberius laser sight, double-triple gun sling, 20oz. CO2 tank, Freak barrel
High ROF, doesn't need batteries
External hose, CO2 use
I've been using the RT for awhile now, and i'm not disappointed. It consistently gives me amazing results. When you're in the woods and you send your enemies running back to their base, you know buying the RT was worth it. The only problems are that there is an external hose, which could snag on a barach or twig(although this hasn't happened to me yet). The other problem is usage with C02. after about 100 balls on full auto, which takes 5 seconds to fire, your gun will actually freeze. This is due to the low temperatures created by expanding C02. But in the end it is definitely worth buying, much more so than a double trigger or e-grip.
Buy this. It is definitely worth your money to send shock and fear through your opponent and feel the power behind 20bps.

Well, I first used the stock a-5 trigger when I went for the first time, but then, I got an A-5 with one already installed! I definatly see a difference between the 2. it is so easy to clean and maintain, and it's very convienent because my bro (having a cocker) let me use some of his hose when the line broke. (my fault, not the gun's) Love it, great upgrade to any A-5
Buy it for your A-5, don't stay on the computer, BUY IT
Not many weaknesses but may chop on full auto but rarely.
This is a good setup. If you have a Tippmann A-5. It Fires FAST!!! I really suggest you get this feature. It is really helpfull when you are playing. You can shoot faster with all the same accuracy. So it's worth it. Great Upgrade. I Have no problems with it so far. all except slight chop on the auto. but thats the cool part because its fast!!!!
Get IT Its Worth it if you want your tippmann for the long run.
Used it only once and worked good for me and got a couple people in the googles and its really easy to haul arround.Used it when pinned down 2 people and got them both and i survived and the cyclone hopper worked excellent and loved to use it and its the best gun I used so far.
This trigger works great. its a little tricky at first because you have to find the point in which you get the maximum bps. Once that point is found it is very consistant. Its easy to install and is well protected by that hard Tippmann frame. I believe it is ment for a double trigger but even with a single trigger it works good. Thats all i used. When I was playing for an extended period of time the response froze up (this was in about 45 degree weather with CO2). The gun works but works as if you didnt have a response trigger. Just get air and you will be fine or stick to playing in warm summer days. With air it is recommended that you get low pressure kit and a secondary regulator. its pricy but do it. The gun is a high pressure gun and using this kit makes it shoot more consistant and evenly. Do not set pressure at anything lower than 400. 450 to 500 is the best pressure to be at.
Its great and its worth it. Replace o-ring on it once a year or two and you are good to go. Its a Tippmann product which is normally reliable.

Fire faster, not affected in bad weather, Sweet spot is awesome.
Use more paint
The response trigger is awesome. I set my RT so, i just pull back on the trigger and go automatic forever. This is a definate must have, or a e-grip. At first my gas screw was in all the way so i had like a 10lb pull on my trigger, but when its set up it is sweet.
The RT trigger is a good upgrade if you want to shoot faster, but not too fast.
Tippmann A-5, double trigger, response trigger, 14"smart parts linear barrel
Fast, easy to set, and and easier trigger pull.
This thing is awesome. You just turn the ROF to what you want it to be (this may take some time to get it just how you want it.) and then it is set until you start seriously running out of air. On my A-5 the problem is that with the cyclone and the response, I can use air fast!!
Great buy. If you want a fast firing gun then get it. I'll give it a 9 because of the gas problem
