    Posted: 28 March 2008 at 6:13pm

Is there anyone who has recently bought an A5? I think I'm missing allen wrenches. I called Tippmann and they sent me the starter pack; barrel sleeve , o-ring, squeegie, and allen keys but I still think I'm short. They sent me three, but the back of the A5 box shows four. Would someone tell me how many theirs came with. Thanks

You should only need 2. Sounds like you got a bonus one.

One wrench for all the bolts on the body, and a larger one for the velocity screw.

Thanks. I was afraid that maybe there were perhaps different size bolts inside the marker.

Maybe perhaps you should have checked ;)

There should only be two or three sizes. Now that you mention it, I don't think there are any allen bolts inside the gun...but I am not very familiar with the A-5.

For $5 or so you can buy an allen set at a store...handy for working on your gun and friend's at the field.

Agreed. I carry a Metric and Standard allen set in my toolkit with me at all times. A good idea is to compile a toolkit with screwdrivers, allen keys, and all the o-rings and extra parts that you may need for your marker in case it fails on the field. This way you can make minor repairs in between games if you have problem.

plus if you get the allen wrenches that are all connected in the nice little fold out format you cant lose just one allen wrench.  makes life much easier.  I would reccommend a snaller phillips head for the A5 too just in case something happens inside the cyclone that needs fixed.  it makes life alot easier as well.
