    Posted: 07 March 2012 at 6:26pm
A5 Upgrades:
Expansion Chamber Kit
E-Grip
The Thread for the Braided Gas Line is NOT the same size For the E-Grip as you can't use the provided 90 degree elbow and the Braided Gas Line is a 1/2" too long.
Was hopeing to find a replacement part that would work but no luck so far.
Any help is appreciated Finding an after market dealer with a line that will work considering the makers Tippmann Sports, LLC don't make one currently from what I found so far.

I thought this spot on the Forum would be a better spot to post considering I'm talking about upgrades that are offered by Tippmann.
 
I will Remove the Previous/Origional Post.

well I guess I found my answer.  I would have rather found a replacement line instead of a new tank adapter.  Searched the website and I think I found what he was looking at. 
 
Pure Energy Tank to Hose Adapter - Female ASA to Female 1/8 Inch Port
 
Sad day when:
My origional post came up unanswered for a few days straight.
I end up finding the answer myself.
The Part I need is aftermarket from a different manufacturer than Tippmann.
 
What Irritated me the most:
Expanction chamber kit and E-grip that were both made by the same company Tippmann Sports, LLC, are Not compatable to work with each other.

So you're mad that you found the answer yourself, and we didn't do the work for you?

Maybe if you weren't as vague in your original posting we might have understood the question better. Go troll elsewhere.

First of all welcome to our forum. The expansion chamber kit was discontinued before the new style A5 H.E. E-Grip was released. It was compatible with the old style E-Grip. I'm glad to hear you found the parts to make it work. If you ever have any questions don't hesitate to call our service department 800 533-4831 & follow the prompts.

I don't think he was trolling....I'm somewhat disappointed in your tone.

Hi All

Hope you are all keeping well. I am new to the forum.

I know this is an old post, but need to ask if Tippman have come up with a solution to this problem? I see someone said that there is a solution, could you maybe post a website please?

Regards
DC

 As far as I know, here's the skinny.

 The A5 uses a standard 1/8 NPT air line at the ASA. This is pretty much the standard for gas lines on paintball markers. You can even find 1/8 NPT fittings and such in hardware stores. The vertical adapter on the A5 is also a standard ASA adapter.

 So if you wanted to toss an expansion chamber on an A5, you would need the chamber and a gas line. You can find gas line kits (hose and fittings) on pretty much any paintball website or shop.

Hi Enos
 
Thanks, I will have a look, stuff is not always easily available around here. If we order something from the US you have to cross all appendages and pray that it gets to you.
 
I had the x chamber attached to a RT and then bought the HE E-Trigger when I found that it does not fit. Maybe I can get someone to machine it for me,
 
Will keep you posted.
 
Thanks
