A 5 Standard Paintball Gun
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
My first look would be at the tank. Low pressure?Next is lubrication and clean marker. Next would be bad o-ring. If it’s been a while since you’ve changed an o-ring in the marker I’d suggest a kit and change them all out at once. Then you know they’re all good! It doesn’t take much for an o-ring to be damaged and even harder to see with the naked eye. 8^)Good luck!
Play hard, play safe, play with honor!
How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?
We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :
When you screw in a paintball gun gas tank and find that there is a significant amount of air leaking around the air source adapter (ASA) fitting, the problem invariably comes from a damaged O-ring. Fix this problem by removing the existing O-ring (size 015) and replace it with a new one.
HPA and CO2 both work fine in the A5.
If the spray gun is dripping just after you have finished painting this is most commonly caused due to wear or damage of your fluid nozzle and fluid needle. You can start by inspecting the fluid needle to see if their is any obvious deformation to the needle.
If a paintball hits you and BREAKS, you are out of the game. All hits count, including gun hits. If a paintball hits you and bounces off, you are a clean player, play on. If you called “OUT”, then realized the paintball bounced, you are still out.
Not all paintball guns can be programmed to be fully automatic. You can find easy-to-follow guides on our Youtube channel at Lone Wolf Paintball by searching “how to program” followed by your paintball gun type.
Auto-Response: Fires 1 Shot for each trigger pull or release. 3 Shot Full Auto: 3 trigger pulls required after which the trigger can be held to achieve full auto firing.
The beauty of HPA is that the pressure is much more stable than CO2 and changes due to shooting fast or playing in cold weather are barely noticeable. No thick clouds or snow from the barrel, no more layers of frost on the marker body and your accuracy improves due to better velocity consistency.
Tippman A5 is a good option particularly for beginners or intermediate level players who want a reliable marker that can keep them in the game against even more experienced players and is fun and easy to use. Unlike Spyder`s paintball guns, it uses less Co2 even with the air-powered carousel.
Clean After Every Use
Clean the marker thoroughly after every use, but make sure to remove your Co2 or HPA tank first. Wipe down the outside of your gun after gameplay to remove all paint. Don`t use soap, chemical cleansers or wash cloths that are too abrasive.
Tippmann says the optimal operating pres. for the A5 is 325-350 psi. I can shoot close to a case of paint with it tuned in.
A fully charged CO2 cylinder at 87.9 oF will have an internal pressure of approximately 1100 psi.

Hello, I have an old Tippman A5 (about 5-6 years
You will have to buy a different barrel for the A5, I would suggest ansgear.com, rockstartactical.com, or ebay. Make sure that you get the right threads along with an apex capeable front. I would suggest the sly carbon fibur barrels, or get a autococker barrel and a lapco adapter for your A5. Hope this helps if you have any questions just let me know.
I own a tippman a5 with an UMP shroud and fake metal clip. I took apart for some maintinance and ever since i put it back together its been acting like im out of air after 2-3 quick shots. I took it apart to check it and everything was ok. So i screwed the tank back in and now i have a small leek on tthe nutin between and the tombstone.
What do you think the problem is (im afraid their two different problems).
There is an O-ring up in where the Tombstone slides in. That O-ring has to be lubed (oiled)
and should be toward the rear of the gun when installing the Tombstone. Also, drop-off
in firing can be caused by lack of lube on the internal O-rings. 2 drops of oil in the inlet hole
where your bottle screws on and then dry firing to cycle the oil thru might help. You may need
to completely tear down the gun and clean and lube the internal O-rings. If you can switch to
air AKA…HPA (High Pressure Air) it will be better for internal parts and better consistency overall.
Here is your manual for reference.
I have a 2008 polaris sportsman 500HD the damb thing has been nothing but problems ever since i got it, right now the damb thing won’t even run, here’s what its doing, when you start it and put it in drive and start to go it bogs down, it also leaks fuel out the bottom of the carborator; heres what i have done; i’v taken the air filter out that didn’t help, took the inline fuel filter out and by passed it that didnt help, i’v put fresh gas in it still nothing, please help
It sounds like your carburetor is gummed up. This is a common problem if the engine has not been run in a while or if has been stored for the winter without fuel stabilizer. You may also have gotten some bad gas, or a fuel treatment that wasn’t compatible, (if you ran one).
If you are familiar with your machines carb; dismantle, clean, inspect components, replaced damaged items and reassemble.
If you are not familiar I suggest taking it to your local service center.
Let me know if this helps. Good luck.
I have a multifunction sports watch that i bought from Big W, (no brand name)
By accident i set the watch to 24 hour time, originally it was set to 12 hour time, how do i set it back? ive tried every button combo including the button combo i used when i accidently set it on 24 hour time, the instructions only say how to set the time and date, it doesnt say how to toggle between 12 hour and 24 hour time, is there a generic way to toggle it on sparts watches? btw, holding the mode button in does nothing on my watch, no matter how long i hold it in for
Hi. How may buttons do you have, 3 or 4 buttons?if you have the 4 buttons, try this:You need to go through the time and date settings again. The 24 and 12hr format select is at the end of time/date adjustment.To set the time and date:-press the top-left button then right-top button to set the seconds, press bottom-left button to set hour then press top-right button to adjust hour, press bottom-left button to set the minute then press top-right button to adjust minute. To set date, press the bottom-left button then press top-right button to adjust month, press bottom-left button then top-right button to adjust day and finally press bottom-left button to set the time format then press top-right button to select 12hour format. Press top-left button when done.Since you have a generic sports watch, it is hard to write specific instructions to set the time format. If your watch has different ways of setting the time, just remember that the 12/24hour format is usually at the end of time and date adjustment.Let me know if you have questions. Good luck.
I bought a new mossberg 590 a1 shot gun a month ago, I love the gun but its having a couple of problems, the first problem is that when shooting every once in a while i get sprayed in the face with exuast from shooting through the safety very scary! any ideas whats causing this? how to fix it? second is that some times the fireing pin sticks and the gun will not discharge a round? the third problem is that i have had feeding issues with gun where it will not realice a gound from the tube, ive taken a tip of a knife to the stuck round in the tube and it prys out with little effort, these problems dont happen every time i go shooting, just every once in a while, but they a happening more and more, im conserned cause the gun is brand new, and i wanna be safe while shooting, can you guys help me? any ideas/solutions? please help!!!!!!!
Personally, with that many problems, I’d call Mossberg and get a return authorization. None of these things should be happening, especially with a new gun.
I attempted to put a car stock on my Tippmann 98 custom and took apart the gun but the stock didnt fit, now when i put it back together and shot it with my tank connected the gun wont stay cocked and little CO2 is coming out with each shot the sound is very low as opposed to my other Tipmann 98 custom where its loud and stays cocked. What do i do?
Check the O rings on the big metal striker, make sure that you have the spring on the back (where the stock would have went) in the right hole on the back plate. Make sure that your velocity is set to a reasonable level.
I have an old (10-15 yrs) Craftsman Snowblower, equipped with a Tecumseh Snow King 4 cycle, 5 hp engine that hasn’t run in over three years due to having been stored. I emptied the tank and put in fresh gas and it started and ran until I put it under heavy load. It stalled and I have not been able to start it since. Any advice for a do it yourselfer. I am looking at the spark plug and the air filter, but cannot locate the air filter. Thanks in advance
You are on the right track. Do check the air cleaner, and also check your oil level and condition. If the oil’s been in there for 3 years, I’d change it.Also pull the carb off the motor, and get a spray can of carb spray cleaner and clean the bowl, needle valve, around the float, and in any ports, jets, etc. Drain a bit of the gas out and check to make sure you’ve got gas flowing, that it’s clean and not blocked.Look in the carb bowl…make sure it’s not full of sediment, water etc… Spray all the carb linkage and make sure it’s all working freely.While you’re at it, use the spray cleaner to spray off the tip of the spark plug, and use some fine sandpaper to clean up the electrode. Then pull the motor thru with the spark plug out , but still attached to the spark plug wire and check for spark. If no spark, replace with a new one. If it’s an older style ignition, it may even have contact points that youll need to clean and regap..
