Ok, taking an a-5 a part is pretty simple but for those people out there new to paintball and have an a-5 this is for you.

1. First thing you want to do is make sure there is no air hooked up to the gun and there is no hopper or paintballs in the chamber. Also take off the barrel.

2. The first thing I would do is take off the cyclone feed. To do this u have to take out the banjo fitting going into the gun and the feeder housing bolt which is at the front left side of the marker.

2.Next is to take off the grip. To do this u have to remove the 2 push pins to be able to pull the grip off. once u have taken the grip off remove the reciever bolt which is at the bottom of the grip.

3.You can know remove the push pin above the gas line and pull the tombstone adapter out by pulling down on the gas line. Once the gas line is out remove the foregrip by turning the front grip screw out.

4. Next u have to remove the endcap from the back of the marker just remove the last push pin at the back of the marker. Then make sure u are carefull when taking this out as there is a spring pushing on the endcap. Once u get the endcap off take the drivespring and pin out(keep the pin and spring together so u dont confuse with cocking spring).

5.Next is taking the 2 halfs of the marker apart. You can do this by removing all 6 reciever bolts(short). Know once you take the left half off take the cocking handle spring out and clean off with paper towell. Once You take the halfs apart the front and rear sights should fall out. You can put the sits back in at the end.

6. Know u can begin taking all the the internals out and wipe them off with a paper towell these parts include the rear bolt, frontbolt, linkage arm, powertube, ball latch, foregrip nut and barrel adapter. Once You have cleaned all the internals and have taken them all out. Clean the 2 halfs with a paper towell. Once u get the 2 halfs clean get a paper and fold it 4 times then put 2-3 drops of oil were the internals move and use the paper towell to spread the oil over were the moving parts go.

7. Its know time to put the marker back together. First off put oil on the front bolt, rear bolt, and linkage arm. Then put the powertube back in(the right side of marker) with the tombstone hole facing down.(this is very important) Then get the front bolt and put it back on the skinny side of the powertube with the o-ring on the front bolt farther away from the powertube. (If you mess that up you wont be able to cock the gun) Next is to put the rear bolt in behind the powertube wth the o-ring closer to the fat side of the powertube. Know put the cocking handle back in with the cocking spring on the realy skinny side. You dont have to put the spring in its slot yet. next put the linkage arm back into the front bolt and rear bolt. Then put the ball latch back in its slot with the curve facing towards the barrel. Next put the barrel adapter back in. Then make sure all parts are all well oiled as well as o-rings before you put the right half back on. Also put the forgrip nut back in its slot Know when putting the right half on. Put the cocking spring in its slot and hold with screw driver to make sure it doesnt come out from its slot then put the right half over the left half. Once you get the right half over the left half put the front sight back in its slot with flat side of sight facing back and put all the bolts back in but not tight just flush. Next make sure the barrel adapter is turned all the way in until it doesn't turn any more. This is the part were u can tighten all the bolts.

8.Get drive spring and pin and put in rearbolt (spring first) Then put endcap back on with drive pin inside little hole on endcap. Put right top push pin in to hold endcap in place. Next put grip back on and put 2 push pins in that hold grip on. Next put tombstone with gasline attached to it back up into powertube and put last push pin in. Know put tank adapter back into the slott on grip and insert bolt that holds tank adapter in place.

9.Put foregrip back on and insert bolt that holds in in place.

10.Put the cyclone feed system back on and put the feederhousing bolt back in to hold cyclone on and put banjo fitting back in. Next loosen the bolt near the end site and push in rear site and tighten again.

11. adjust the velosity back to around 300fps and cock gun 3 times and fire to see if every thing works alright. If every thing works fine you probly did everythin correctly.

12.put 2-3 drops of oil in tank adapter and put tank on and fire 20-30 times without paint.

and know your gun is ready for a days play of paintball. You should have to do this before and after every game.

 Please if I missed any thing or said something rong please correct me and i'll fix it. Also could some one please get a picture of an a-5 with its right side and all its internals in it so the people will have a better understanding of how to put the a-5 back together? thanks
