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.
A-5 with a RT and a smartparts teardrop and an Hpa tank
No Electrical Blasphomy
This is a review that clears up the many missconceptions about the RT.
First this thing is a gas hog. yes it dose use the excess air from the shooting action however the gas needs to flow at a larger amount to power the trigger because the gas will always go to the least reasistance. the least resistance is out the front and the banjo fittings toward the cyclone. it needs just a little more gass to power both the RT and Cyclone.
Second this trigger dose work with Hpa not the best and you have to do some fiddling with it to get it to achive the 15 billion balls per second that some people want. the main problem is that Hpa dose not have a high enough output pressure to keep the thing working perfectly.
Third it is possible to pull off single round with the trigger but why would you want to
Finally remember if you want to achive auto fire squeeze the trigger dont pull.
Im saying an 8 because i couldnt get the thing to work without a bit of fiddling
Tippmann 98---pretty ok
Modified rewfus dawg a5---AWESOME
Tippmann A-5 w/ Flatline barrel, T6 collapsible stock, remote line using 3000 psi nitro, lapco hotshot red dot sight, and a response trigger
Fast and pretty acurate
remote line difficult to keep on, it curves alot from flatline, CO2 freezes response trigger
Its a pretty accurate gun, but sometimes it curves alot. The response trigger really improves the shooting, and it dominates when you find the sweet spot. The remote line is difficult to work with, but it makes the gun a lot less heavy. It's all around a killer gun.
I would say it is a must buy gun for people who do scenerio play. Also after I purchesed the A-5 and all the upgrades, I learned they made an already put together version (A-5 Stealth), so buy that, and then install the response trigger. I first tried it out with CO2, and it kept freezing, so i switched to nitro and it worked a lot better. Use nitro!!!!!!!!!

A-5 response co2, stiffy, flame drop forward, double trigger, pretty nice
Nice trigger feel
It is not half as fast as another a-5 response
HELP ME! This gun was worked on by my brother and he did his best. It wasn't shooting great becasue there was a cut in the line and was left over o rings. So what he did is took it apart and found the missing o ring, then what I still think he shouldn't've done was put a ton of paintball oil over the bolt before he installed, maybe expanding the bolt??? It was still not that great as far as the rate of fire was concerned. So feeling stupid of letting my brother do it. I took it to the proffesional at Marquette, Rick and several times he just didn't know. He replaced a few o rings and the slit in the line. It improved only slightly. Yes it was run on C02. I'm thinking to fix it by replacing the bolts. By the way the other gun I used was top notch and probably 3 times faster than mine with just a single trigger. ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME.
red dot scope
The strengths are it can shoot 15 balls per second
I got a rt about 7 months ago and have loved it every day ive played with it. everything about it is good i like it how you can adjust the rate of fire very easily it can be done duaring a game. but the on thing i dont like is the co2 consumption. In a day of paintball i will go through 32 oz of co2 when my friend using a spyder will go the whole time on a 9 oz and have sone left.
The rt is a grate upgrade and is worth the 70 bucks and its also worth the extra co2.

Fast at shooting. Good use for Speedball.
If there is any, tell me cuz I don't see any
The Response Trgger is good for speedball or for any paintball game. If I barely put just enough pressure to pull the trigger, I shoot around 5-7 paintballs. I shot a guy doing this in the shoulder and they left two big welts that were less than half an inch away. Its great.
Its a great product to have. It can help alot in any game or situation. And it also helps with a double trigger alot.

I had this thing factory installed and it works great! As you Fire the trigger it returns the trigger to its standars position, thus if you keep presure on it you will be able to fire full auto. This is essentially a Mechanical E-Grip. If your not the E-grip type then definatly get this

Doesn't need a battery
Good in all weather
Stops working near the end of your tank
Well it came stock with my a-5 and was the thing I liked most about my a-5. I don't know why some people say its hard to work i got it the hang of it in a few mins on my first try with it. I don't care much for electronics I just want to put in ym gas and have everything work. With my cyclone running on the gas as well I don't need any batteries and it still is quite fast. My friend walking his ion as fast as he can is only a bit faster than my response when I get it working. It's great becuase i have very slow finger and i'f i didnt have an r/t i'd be very slow even on something like the ion.
A great no hassle product. Need some speed to your a-5 look no furthur.

The Response Trigger IS 100% better Then The EGRIP/WAS BORD...
None Its the Best! Dont Fall For The Lame WAS bord
Response Trigger = Good
Stock Trigger = Slow
WAS = Bad For Everyone!
So For Any One Looking For The Best Upgrade For The Tippmann Guns Buy The Response Trigger, It Will Own All Other guns. The WAS Bord Cant Compare To The Response Trigger. Ask Any Player on the Field The Response Trigger is KING
The Response Trigger is Just as Fast as the WAS Bord and The Response Trigger WILL TAKE MORE ABUSE, That Means Dropings in water, dirt, no batterys, cheaper! Over all its still better
Tippmann A-5 with Response Trigger
Lapco Snapshot Barrel Kit
Pure Energy 68cu 4500 psi Compressed Air
Fully automatic without the e-grip, no batteries
Eats up more paintballs?
Ok so I have the response trigger with my A5 and 68/4500 air tank. It works really, really well, but I really don't think it will work as well with CO2. With CO2 it will probably just get the whole gun frozen because more CO2 is going to more parts of the gun. Upgrade to air before you get this.
I got mine from the factory, I didn't get the kit so it is put in well. If you are deciding to get an A5 and then upgrade with the kit, dont do it unless you are really sure of your mechanic skills! Repeat: Don't do it! Buy it factory made for a little better price and be assured of the quality. Okay. On to my review.
This response trigger allows you to shoot out full automatic without needing an e-grip. No batteries at all. So now your A-5 still only needs air and paintballs for the gun, Cyclone feed hopper, AND response trigger. How great is that? No worrying about batteries at all! You can change the feed on the response trigger, from 0 bps to 15 bps and anywhere in between. I usually set it about the same as someone walking the trigger as fast as they can, thats the highest you need (6-8 bps). It is easy to adjust on the field, there is a little round thing with a screw-like head, you can swivel it with your fingernail, you dont even need a screwdriver. It is awesome! My RT has worked really well, I dont know if it will work well on CO2, I have heard that it doesnt.
Also: It uses air that is left over from firing the paintball each time to push the piston forward and move your trigger. IT DOES NOT USE MORE AIR THAN USUAL.
It does not work when you have like 100 psi left (it shouldn't, I'm just saying that). You use more paintballs. I went from like 600-700 to 1200 in a half-day once I got this.
Buy it from the factory and it will be great. Good with compressed air/nitrogen. Easy to adjust the rate of fire on the field. Does not work with low air.
I love my response trigger!

Smart Parts 14" Linear Barrel
Gettin an adjustable stock soon...
IDK if it adds to the A-5's notorious gas hog...
I just came from a Spyder e99 avant. i liked it to a degree because it had an e-grip on it for cheap. The gun i had before that was a model 98, i wanted something auto. So after a while of having my Spyder i got tired of gettin invited to a game a forgettin to charge it or th ebattery goin low. I hated the batteries more than anything about that gun. we'd be playing rec woodsball or something and id be worried cuz it would start to rain a little bit. But this i love. This outshoots my e99 avant BY FAR! the rate of fire is also adjustable by this little screw implanted in the string on macrohoses by the way. if you are looking to make your A-5 an auto without spending the big money on an e-grip get this. the only trade off to gettin rid of batteries is it consomes CO2. but to me its worth it.
If high rate of fire is what you want without the worry of batteries get this. I like it.
