Some trigger upgrades do not work well with Tippmann guns specially with the E-trigger. I will exchange one upgrade at the time for elimination in order to find out which is causing the problem.

I have response trigger on my a5 and only shots one shot at a time when pointing straight. When i raise the gun to the air and shot it response trigger works. What could be the problem?


If you are using CO2 it may be affecting the system. With a gun down straight, you could draw liquid CO2 into the internals. A siphon tube can be installed in a CO2 tank to stop or manage this. If you have access to someone's air tank, try using HPA (high pressure air aka nitrogen). If it fires fine with air you have deducted that the CO2 is to blame. Simple. Switch to air. It's better for the gun anyway! Now if the air didnt change anything I would think a component of the response trigger system is to blame. I am not familiar with the response trigger( I use E-grips) but I would think that a part that may slide or move forward or bak when you lift the gun up would be to blame. Most local shops should be able to diagnose the problem. I did find an installation video by Tippmann on youtube.

My a5 has no pressure with my flatline installed, and works fine with stock barrel... pleASe explain


Have you chrono'd the gun? This test velocity. This makes no sense unless your
gun is actually shooting VERY slow. In that case the way the flatline works, the ball rolls thru the barrel,
would really slow down a ball passing thru. That is my bet, low velocity. I use the same gun.
Adjust your allen screw in to make more pressure and try the flatline. Man I love the flatline with
an e-grip. Scares the **** outta the long distance players!

I own a tippman a5 with an UMP shroud and fake metal clip. I took apart for some maintinance and ever since i put it back together its been acting like im out of air after 2-3 quick shots. I took it apart...


There is an O-ring up in where the Tombstone slides in. That O-ring has to be lubed (oiled)
and should be toward the rear of the gun when installing the Tombstone. Also, drop-off
in firing can be caused by lack of lube on the internal O-rings. 2 drops of oil in the inlet hole
where your bottle screws on and then dry firing to cycle the oil thru might help. You may need
to completely tear down the gun and clean and lube the internal O-rings. If you can switch to
air AKA...HPA (High Pressure Air) it will be better for internal parts and better consistency overall.
Here is your manual for reference.

Blowing air through trigger area. Need rebuild kit? Longer version...started blowing air out of small hole in left side of casing. Leaked oil out of there as well but still worked fine. This has been...


If the trigger still works to fire the single shot, then the o-ring kit should be sufficient. If the trigger area continues to leak air, then the trigger should be replaced as well. Keep the gun well lubricated as well.

I have an a5 paintball gun with electronic trigger, when i hook it to air and pull the trigger, the hopper is not moving!!!


On the A5 the hopper or Cyclone feed is powered thru a small tube on the feeder side
of the gun. Make sure that tube is connected and if so, pull it off and see if air is flowing
thru it when you pull the trigger. If not, the internal passage may be blocked. Tear down
the gun and clean out the obstruction. If there is a pulse of air coming out the tube when firing
then it may be the Cyclone feed mechanism. Just unscrew the 3 phillips head bolts
under the Cyclone and observe the air driven gear drive. Air up the marker and see
what is moving or not moving. Complete replacement upgrade Cyclone gear drives
are available that say they increase performance if you cant get it moving.

My A5 just rapid fires when the trigger is pulled even in semi, if you release the trigger it stops but does it everytime I pull the trigger and the E-trigger seems to be working fine


Make sure your battery is new. It doesn't take a lot of voltage drop to affect performance.

Make sure your marker is clean, and properly lubed with a quality oil make for paintball.

Make sure your board connections are secure. You can change modes on the e-trigger yes? Go through them and fire a few times in each to ensure it's changing.

Make sure you have a full tank of air while your testing to make sure this isn't a problem as well, or causing your issues.

Good luck!

A5 freezing up


There might be a couple of reasons for the malfunction. It is my experience that the upgrades made for Tippmann not always improve the performance of the guns, in fact they may cause problems like the one mentioned. I would try to switching your set up back to see if the problem continues and if it does make sure you have a fully loaded tank and that the internals on your cyclone are functioning correctly.
