If you already have the items listed in your signature line... I'd say you're already well off as far as barrels go. Flatline and Lapco are good choices.

Gas... if HPA and not CO2... any preset tank will be fine. Depending on the availability of fills, I would recommend a 4500psi system. High output (~850psi) is typically standard... but if you have a low pressure system, a low output (~450psi) might be better.
68ci is a handy size.
If CO2... then tanks are fairly standard.

Other than that... for the A-5, I like both the E-grip, and the Ricochet R-5 replacement hopper.

I'd offer costs... but I'm not sure what the costs would be in the UK.

1.What is the best barrell for my A5  This is a lot of opinion here. Many people think the flatline is the best. It adds 100 feet to your shot and makes the paintball have a flat trajectory. I think the best barrel you can get for the price is the Lapco Bigshot.

2.What is the best makes of gas canistere Do you mean like a brand? Most co2 tanks are about the same but I like Pure Energy. They are a good brand. For HPA, I have heard Crossfire makes good tanks.

3. Which trigger accessories are good and reliable There are many things you can do to your trigger. You can buy a double trigger for more comfort. There is the r/t that gives you a full auto effect. It costs about $75. There is also the e-grip that has many different firing mods that costs $100. You can do trigger stops and different trigger springs to make your trigger pull lighter.

4.Other good a5 accessories  I am assuming you are going to be using co2. Co2 is very unstable and changes with the heat and humidity, causing velocity spikes and inconsistancy. To fix this, I is good to invest in an expansion chamber or regulator. It will keep the liquid co2 out of your gun, allowing it to run smoothly.

Please notify me on costs,reliability.ect

I know I wasn't very direct in my answers so if you have any more questions about anything I said, don't hesistate to ask.

1.  Flatline or J&J.

2.  Crossfire preset w/red reg

3.  E-grip is a must

4.  The JCS double trigger will allow you to walk your A-5.  Also the Ricochet R-5 is  a great hopper up.

My guns name is Mr. Max in remembrance of my dog that got hit by a car: Tippmann A-5
Ricochet R-5
JCS double Trigger
Tippmann E-Grip
Flatline Barrel

Do you have the need for speed?
