I think you will need a universal mount for the A-5. I'm not 100% sure though cause I have a 98c. Might have to ask someone esle more familiar with drops and A-5.

If you want to mount a drop foward on an a-5, you have to buy a universal mount.  Shocktech makes one and so does Dead on paintball.

The bullet drop foward then screws on to the block adapter.  the block adapter fits onto the bottom of the grip. 

I have two nuts on each screw connecting to the block adapter, because the two screws i received were to long, and the bullet would not mount tightly to the block adapter. sorry the picture is hard to see.

You need a longer hose.

There is a drop that doesnt require a uni-mount also, and it says you dont need a a new hose and can use your stock bottom-line.
