How many variations does tippmann have of this gun? I have two that are slightly different where the air feeds the cyclone and neither has the select style safety.

There are two main different versions of the A5.  The Pre-2011 A5 and the current model.  These guns differ in the finish and the grip set up.  The current version can accept the current H.E. e-grip.   There have been several small changes over time such as the sling swivel on the back, oring retention on the barrel adapter, and some cyclone upgrades.

The A5 currently comes in 3 versions.  Mechanical, RT, and HE Egrip.  You can upgrade and downgrade within these options.

In 2007 we updated the receiver with two accessories ports for the Cyclone & Response Trigger Kit.  In November of 2010 we updated the A-5 to incorporate the following ten upgrades.   

1.      New Cyclone Feed System – improved paddle design and connection point is easier on paint and reduces the ‘popcorn’ effect, making the Cyclone more reliable in a variety of weather conditions 

2.      New External Selector Switch – new trigger design allows players to switch easily from safety to firing mode. Plus, the new ergonomic design works great for left or right handed players

3.      New Larger Front Grip – new longer front grip has a better feel and incorporates a front tang so, when removed, upgrades are easier to add to the lower portion of the receiver

4.      New Stock Barrel – features a 8.5” high-performance design that is stone-honed to enhance accuracy and incorporates new porting to reduce marker noise

5.      New Redesigned Internal Bore – to help remove internal components, the receiver features a wider internal bore design for faster field stripping and easier maintenance

6.      New Lighter Receiver Design – helps reduce the overall weight of the marker

7.      New Tombstone Connections – marker maintenance is now faster and easier than ever  

8.      New Sling Mounts – removable front mount makes it easy to add a sling

9.      New Low-Profile Hopper – offset design utilized on the X7 offers a clear sightline

10.  New Black Gas line – provides greater on-field stealth and features heavy-duty construction
