Safety Is Your Responsibility (continued from page 5)
Getting Started (continued from page 6)
• Read the Air Supply Cylinder Removal and SAFETY TIPS on pages
18-20 before beginning the cylinder installation or removal.
• Always measure your marker’s velocity before playing paintball and never
shoot at velocities in excess of300feetpersecond (see instructions on page 7).
Cyclone feeder housing is clean, free of debris, and the Cyclone feeders
turn freely when the manual advance lever knob is pushed.
❏ Make sure that the hopper is clean, free of sharp edges or debris. This
will keep the paintballs from breaking and feed the marker smoothly.
❏ Install the hopper neck into the Cyclone feeder housing aligning the
hopper neck tab to fit into the cutout in the Cyclone feeder housing. With
the barrel blocking device installed and trigger safety in Safe Mode, you are
now ready to load your hopper with paintballs. After filling the hopper with
paintballs the chamber will still be empty. You need to push the feeder manual
advance lever to chamber a paintball. Only remove the barrel blocking
device and turn off the trigger safety when ready to shoot.
❏ Eye protection designed for paintball use must be worn by the user and
any person within range. Do not disassemble this marker while it is
pressurized with air. Do not pressurize a partially assembled marker.
Read each step completely before performing the step:
NOTE: Carefully hand start all threaded parts and do not overtighten and
strip threaded parts when assembling.
STEP 1: Prepare Marker for Air Supply Cylinder Installation
• For markers with E-Grip - ❏ You must first read and follow E-Grip
Operating Instructions on pages 8-13) before performing STEP 2.
(A-5 Stealth ) - ❏ You must first
• For markers with Remote Coil
check that the remote coil is properly connected - read & follow the
Instructions on page 8 before performing STEP 2.
• For markers without E-GRIP - ❏ Go to STEP 2.
STEP 2: Air Supply Cylinder Installation
❏ You must first read the Air Supply Cylinder Removal and SAFETY TIPS
on pages 18-20 before beginning the cylinder installation.
❏ Do not pressurize a partially assembled paintball marker.
❏ First put trigger safety in Safe Mode (see page 4 instructions)
and ❏ install barrel blocking device (see instructions on page 2).
❏ Next you need to cock the marker by sliding the bolt cocking handle
all the way back until you hear / feel it click into place.
Then release the cocking handle. Cocking handle will
slide forward . Marker is now cocked. Always keep
the marker in the cocked position when air supply
is attached to the marker. This will help prevent an accidental discharge.
❏ To install the air supply cylinder, lubricate the cylinder valve o-ring with a
little marker oil then insert the cylinder valve end into the air supply adapter
at the back end of the marker grip (or remote coil). Twist the cylinder clockwise
into the adapter until it stops. Your marker is ready to fire once you switch
to Fire Mode from Safe Mode (and on remote coil - turn the air flow valve on
-see page 8). If the tank is full and you do not hear the air supply engage,
the pin valve could be too short or the pin valve seal is damaged. (Follow
the Air Supply Cylinder Removal instructions on pages 18-20 and take your
air or CO2 cylinder to a “C5” Certified Airsmith for inspection or contact the
STEP 3: Hopper and Cyclone Feeder
Barrel blocking device must be installed (see page 2) and trigger safety in
Safe Mode (see page 4) before filling the hopper. ❏ Make sure that the

STEP 4: Rate of Fire Adjustments and Troubleshooting
• Marker: A-5 with E-Grip - ❏ Go to pages 8-13 and follow E-Grip
Tuning and Operating Instructions before performing STEP 5.
• Marker: A-5 Response - ❏ Go to page 14 and follow Tuning The
Response Trigger Rate of Fire instructions before performing STEP 5.
• Markers: A-5 Basic and A-5 STEALTH - ❏ Go to STEP 5.
STEP 5: Velocity Adjustment
❏ Each time you play paintball, the velocity of your paintball marker should
be checked with a chronograph, an instrument for measuring velocity, prior
to playing paintball to verify that the marker’s velocity is set below 300 feet
per second or less if required by playing field. NOTE: For markers with Flatline
barrel system, 260-275 feet per second is recommended for best performance.
❏ To adjust the velocity use the 3/16” allen wrench 3/16”Allen Wrench
included with your marker. The velocity adjustment
screw is located on the right side of the receiver. To
reduce the velocity, turn the screw inward or clockwise
. To increase the velocity, turn the screw Feeder Manual Advance Lever
counterclockwise . Do not remove the velocity screw.
STEP 6: Rear Sight Adjustment:
❏ Rotate the rear sight
to preferred width to allow easy sighting.
❏ Collapsible Stock Length Adjustment:
Front Grip adjustment: ❏ Use the 3/16” allen wrench to loosen screw
inside the Front Grip
to slide the front grip forward or back ,
and tighten to lock in place.
