    Posted: 09 September 2006 at 1:29am
I decided I wanted to replace the stock powertube in my A-5... I also wanted a little more "feature" to it.. that's when I found this one... http://www.opsgear.com/Tippmann-A5-Red-Hot-Power-Tube It is aircraft aluminum and also makes a "bang" when fired, by that I mean it is louder than the stock power-tube...If anyone has any experiance with this bolt\powertube please tell me I just ordered mine

Unless your stock powertube cracked, I wouldnt reccomend an aftermarket one. A couple of kids who play at the local fields woodsball course have them and i havent noticed any performance increases. I guess if you want your gun to be louder you should get it.

I'm not expecting performance increase, I'm simply expecting durability and more sound

I've seen some tubes used that are after-market and they don't all turn the marker into a blender, but most do not do anything for the gun...stock is just as durable, never managed to crack a powertube before.

As I stated above.. I am not expecting performance increase, just eliminates the chance of a power-tube cracking w\ useing C02, and adds more "sound" to the gun, I've never heard of power-tubes turning the gun into a blender..

Did you order this with the R/T hole? If not, it might not work with your setup. Check out JCS's site:

LoL, my parents are putting in quite a bit of money into my Laptop..... so I'm not paying too much there, Paintball gear I buy with my own money, the Powertube as I showed you on the link, does have a unique sound.... think of it as a "mini muffler" atsept in this case, it's a straight pipe. If you look up the tube on PBREVIEW.COM the only thing people hate about it IS the sound increase.. which I love. And yes I got the R\T one.. the one w\o R\T you have to special order from JCS
