A5's been out for years, I doubt they are changing it.

You could just try getting used to the way it is now.  I'm sure all guns are like this, and I'm sure they always will be.  You might as well get use to it now.

What kind of differences would you expect for a left handed gun? The hopper, feed system, and everything involved with that is on the propper side for a left hander, all that is on the opposite side is the bolt pin thing.

Yeah, Tippmann isn't going to revamp its lines for a small minority of players.

Just get a centerfeed gun if it bothers you that much.

Get a higher end gun if you are playing with a team. Centerfeed is the way to go. Anyways, the A5 is better for a lefty as it is.

If you don't like the way it is, and you really want an a5 the only solution I can think of is getting a q loader.

ive been a little out of the loop for a while, but if you can get past the sight issues of the cyclone/hopper being on the inside of the gun, it should keep you tighter in your bunker and whatnot

and i dont know if they still make it, but J&J used to make an aluminum .45 double trigger frame for the A-5 that would be perfectly ambidextrous, (its almost identical in shape/size/look to the '03 cocker era frame...but obviously bolts on to the A-5) and it works with the r/t

Hey, Pate, it does feel good to be a gangster.
