Customize A Tippmann A5

Paintball is enjoyed by many weekend warriors.

Paintball is both a sport and hobby which involves using specially designed air guns, called markers, to propel paintballs at opponents. It can be played in a variety of ways, both by teams or as individuals, but paintball markers are always a necessary component. The Tippmann A5 is used by many as their primary marker. The Tippmann A5 is especially popular due to the wide variety of upgrades available, which allow you to fully customize it.


Customizing the Tippmann A5

1. Place the Tacamo K416 Front Sight at the end of the A5’s rail. This is the plastic top of the marker. The sight should be placed at the very end of the rail, right above where the barrel protrudes out from the plastic in order to achieve better accuracy. Ensure the sight is level, then bolt in place using the Allen wrench to tighten with the single Allen head screw on the sight. Test the accuracy of the sight, making adjustments as needed.

2. Remove the stock A5 barrel from the marker. Rotate the barrel counterclockwise until it becomes unattached to the marker. Once the stock barrel is unattached, begin securing the Tippmann A-5 Sniper 16-inch Barrel to marker. Rotate the new barrel clockwise into the marker until it is securely attached.

3. Remove the end cap at the end of Tippman A5 marker. Unscrew the two Allen screws which are at the end of the marker in order to remove the end cap. Attach the Tippmann Collapsible Stock to the end of marker. Carefully attach using the Allen wrench and the two screws which held original end piece to the marker.
