I was thinking about gitting a DOP X-core. How much will it be for all the parts? I have an A5.

I also want to know what I should get first a rear v/a or a double trigger. If so what double trigger? (I have a R/t) ( was thinking DOP blade)

www.countysports.com has them for $20 or so. All you'll need is the X-Core, an o-ring, and the new length of steel braid.

Get the X-core first. The only way a double trigger would help is if you have an E-grip.
A-5
E-Grip
JCS Dual Trigger
DOP X-CORE 8 stage x-chamber
Lapco Bigshot 14" Beadblasted

Optional setup:
R/T
Dead on Blade trigger

So it will be:

  $20 for the X-core (dont I need a 90 degree elbow?)
   $9 For the braided hose (what size?)
    ? For an O-ring. What size and can I pick this up at my hardware store?

Yes the X-core is around 20 dollars. Hose and elbows if needed will cost like 5 dollars and the O-ring comes on the X-core. It's a standard tank O-ring also so you can just ask your local proshop to give you a few. Or just go to your local hardware shop and pick some O-rings up.

Well like I said you can get O-rings at a hardware store. ALso I'm sure Walmart sells them. As far as hoses..... That will depend on the length you need. Just sorta guess the size you'll need. Without a drop forward I'd say around 5in hose. With a drop I'd fo 7in maybe 8in. As for elbows get to 90degree elbows and you'll be set.

Also for triggers the DOP double trigger will work great with the R/T....

Just go with the 6. Save you the trouble of not having it long enough and being po'ed. Also no problem with the help. That's why were here, well most of us.

Edit: Even if it's to long you can still fit it on there you'll just have some extra hose on the gun....

Steel is better than macroline... If you really want macro though make sure you cut it evenly... But stick with the steel it will look better since your finish on your A-5 is silver....

yeah I am going to make my sig smaller.

I just dont think macro could stand up. I'm sure it can but if I am playing woodsball I think if it gets caught on a tree it would break

Now I am thinking of getting Chrome or Prizm Orange
lenses for my Proteus goggles. I need Spectra ones right? Which one is cooler is what I am getting at Prizm Orange or Black Chrome (I really want something so they cant see my face) Wait I found Prizm Crome and Prizm Blue also. (They say the Prizm isn't scratch resistant.)

Did you manage to get everything hooked up and working properly?

Also, we sell tank o-rings in a variety of packs (5, 10, 25, etc.). Next time you order anything from us, you could stock up on some o-rings so you don't have to worry about not having a proshop nearby.

Have a great day!
Mike
