Tippmann A5 Review: Affordable Woodsball Gun

Tippmann A5 Review

Whether you’re a casual beginner or an intermediate paintball enthusiast, it all boils down to one thing: you need a reliable marker that will take your gameplay to a whole new level.

Finding the best marker seems like no easy feat due to the number of options to choose from. But the Tippmann A5 made this decision-making a little easier for the lot of us.

Read our Tippmann A5 Review to learn more about this remarkable (no pun intended) product!

Durable and Made to Last

This marker redefines the idea of a “great investment”. A serious beginner need not worry about the reliability of this marker as its sturdy metal frame and dense plastic covering the other parts are built to last.

The A5 also boasts of a full aluminum die cast receiver and a shock absorbent end cap to limit the chances of recoil.

Meanwhile, its black finish is also proven and tested to survive the usual wear and tear which should be a major consideration for serious players.

Sleek And Straight Forward Design

While there’s no real hype over the Tippmann A5’s design, it doesn’t go behind the popular expensive options available in the market.

The only notable difference is the length of A5 as it is quite longer compared to other markers. This might concern some players but it barely made a difference when held.

It comes in silver, black, or camouflage so you can easily pick your preferred design. As already mentioned, the aluminum finish of the marker gives it a premium look.

The Tippmann A5 also has an inline blowback design where the bolt, striker, and valve can be found next to each other in a horizontal angle. This feature alone emphasizes the simplicity of the marker’s design without sacrificing its visual impact.

So if you’re looking for a marker that is still quite the head-turner, then this definitely should go right into your bag.

Reliable Performance

Another major consideration for every marker is, of course, it’s performance during the actual game.

We can attest the reliability of the Tippmann A5 when it comes to shooting far and fast.

It comes with a Cyclone Feeder System–a hopper that can cater to the needs of beginners–which feeds up to fifteen rounds in the A5 without batteries. Amazing isn’t it?

And as far as actual gameplay goes, this marker is gunned to fire accurate fast and far shots.

However, this marker is popularly used for tactical gameplay than the speedball side; making it the best option for beginners.

Indeed, the phenomenal and reliable performance of the Tippmann A5 can surely help new paintball enthusiasts to get a better grip of the game by giving them a taste of the adrenaline-pumping experience.

Upgrade Ready

If you choose this marker among many others, one sure benefit is the endless list of modification options.

One feature that we really like about this marker is that it can be operated with either C02, nitrogen, or compressed air.

We do recommend for players who feel the need to eliminate the inconsistency of C02 to opt for using HPA (compressed air) instead.

As for serious players who upgrade their kit through time and have far more definite specifications for their markers, the Tippmann A5 is their best option.

Yes, it is true that it can be customized using body kits to look like legit guns like the M4A1 but it only gets exciting from there.

We also have to mention the Tippmann A5 E-Grip, a highly patronized accessory for the marker. The E-Grip provides the A5 the ability to switch from single to full auto on the field which brings the game to a whole new level of intensity.

This feature is a really great advantage for cover fire situations and close-quarter tactical combat. And the best part? It pumps up more power to an already exciting gameplay.

  • Mechanical Marker
  • .68 Caliber
  • 800 psi Operating Pressure
  • Uses Co2 or HPA
  • 8-inch Barrel
  • .689 mm Bore Size
  • 3 lbs 3 oz

The Bottomline

While we can add so many reasons why we love this product, we still admit that it does come with its own set of limitations. After all, this is an in-depth and an unbiased Tippmann A5 review which we made to ensure that you make an informed decision, rather than one based on impulse.

As we already mentioned, the Tippmann A5 is more for a tactical gameplay use, so if you’re a pro or an intermediate player who prefers speed games, then you might need to just add another marker to your collection to be used for that specific purpose.

Meanwhile, the four push pin feature for quick disassembly of the marker may not be quite the success for several users as they complain about overly tight fit of the said pins.

Some users also raise their concern regarding the weight of the marker which may be a little troubling but not a deal breaker, in our opinion.

But all in all, this product is the prime choice not only for beginners but for every player who are seriously looking for a leg up in the competition.

With its fully customizable and sleek design, you can get whatever features you want without shedding additional bucks for another marker purchase; and this is one of the best features of this product, we must say.

Its major selling point surely does not end in its ease of use and almost limitless capabilities and potential.

To be honest, we’re pretty sure that this fact alone is enough to convince you that the Tippmann A5 is the marker you’re set to use for an incredibly long time as you reach your full potential.

So are you going all in?
