"Make sure the buffer o-ring is reinstalled around the spring and spring guide."

Does this apply to the new A-5, which has a different end cap?  I haven't even really tried to remove my end cap or the buffer, and I think they don't really come apart.  Besides this, I generally use a stock.  I think that I tend toward the mil-sim look.  Maybe you can understood, since you've already carried around an M16 for quite a while longer than I did.

Well, I read most of it and will be back to finish it over time.

I'm new hear and a new A5 owner. I have been a beginner woods-baller for about a year but only recently purchased the A5.

I'm into the mechanical side of things as I am a MX bike mechanic (suspension mostly) and am really enjoying learning about my new gun.

Thanks VERY MUCH for taking the time to create this post-IT ROCKS!!!

Very informative post. Answered a few questions I had regarding my new 98. I have played a fair amount of times, but finally got off of my cheap a.. and bought my own equipment.

yes they can use co2 very well.  tippmanns are very versatile and tough.  also if you look for a new barrel the triumph uses the same threading as the 98c.  Just so you know before you have to ask.  any other questions post up.  we love to help new players.  Merry christmas and welcome to the forum.
Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...

Thanks for a great post! I just bought the A5 power pack, and was wondering about some of the accessories that tippmann offers. I like the Mil-sim look, but don't want to spend the $$$$. Thanks again for the info.
