    Posted: 21 March 2006 at 6:03pm
Hey guys,
Im an expierenced woodsball player that has been playing for a couple of years. I have a Spyder and I'm sick of its unrelibility, its uncanny ability to chop balls, and difficulty to fieldstrip.
All of my friends have Tippmanns and now I'm very interested in getting an A-5. I know of a very good Tippmann dealer that is selling refurbished A-5's that come with the Tippmann waranty.
My questions are...

Are these just returned A-5's that Tippmann then sells for cheap?

Is there any chance that I'm going to buy the A-5 and its going to come broken?

What does Tippmann actually DO to the guns when they refurbish them?

Feedback appreciated,thanks

The guns are usually returned because finish or packaging defects. Or they may not have been assembled correctly before they were packaged and shipped.

Whatever the case, refurbished guns are a good deal. Extra special attention is paid when refurbishing a gun, no one wants a gun returned twice.

If it comes with the full factory warranty, you can't go wrong.


For I will wander to and fro,
I'll go where I no one do know,

I friend of mine bought on of them and I stripped it down  completly, I could not find a single fault in it. He has been using it for 6 months now and not one single problem.
I'd buy one

ghost- haha that happend to me, the pin that keeps tension on the spring for the cock fell off in the woods, and next minute the spring flew out the back of the gun and i lost all the balls,and a 20oz of co2, it chopped like 20 balls and paint was dripping out of the barrel.......lol

Bay/traveler-thanks that makes me feel better about it

Anyway, Thanks for the replies

Any other opinions?

anything that tippmann will sell themselves, especially if they give it a warranty, is no worse than a new product.

what store are you getting the refurbished gun from? Did that store refurbish it or did tippmann refurbish it?



perhaps the greatest movie ever

It will be here in 2 days so I will let you guys know how it is since no one one here seems to have bought one.

It comes with everything a brand new A-5 will come with including the box.
