I just bought an A-5 and i was told i could upgrade it to an automatic and get upto 20 balls a second. Is this true?

Yes, you can get it automatic by getting the egrip. It won't go 20bps more like 17bps I think is the limit.

The E-Grip caps out at 14-15 bps.

With a carefully worked RT, you can get quasi-auto up to 17-18 bps.

 get an egrip its capped at 15bps or r/t theres no limit is there as high as the gun can go i guess but thats about 17bps.

Yea, you can buy an E-Grip but most of the fields don't allow full autos... there quite dangerous...

i think its at over 18bps, that the cyclone spins to fast and balls cant drop fast enough to feed. so you dont want it too fast.

i adjusted my jcs trigger to about 17-18pbs on my egrip for the a-5. ile put a selected number of paintballs in it next time i play and see how long it takes to shoot them all...so ile get back on the A-5's rate of fire.

The board on the E-Grip is capped at 15bps. I know of 3 people working on a new board to get it higher, but have not finished the mod yet.

What if you had a JCS double trigger and walked it in Turbo wouldn't that allow for higher rates of fire than even the full auto setting?

The e-grip is capped at 15bps regardless of firing mode. It will not fire faster than 15bps

The RT can get up to 17bps, more if you tune it just right and do some other custom modding.

The WAS board thats comming out for all tippmann markers (current and future) has an adjustable cap of up to 30bps. Right now tippmann won't vouche for the cyclone handling more than 15 reliably though it has been tested well above that and can hit at least 20 without problems.

the 98c with a Halo B or Q loaderwill outshoot a A5 because if the cyclone feeds over 15 bps it starts to turn into a heicopter rotor.

if u heard paint blender,  they mean a5 at high speeds

I e mailed tippmann and they said the absolute highest u can get out of an r/t is 13 BPS?

And no the cyclone can hit 20 but might have an ocasional blank fire but over on the was forums they said reliably it can hit 17.
