It's a smart move, the A-5 was the most friendly marker for standard paintball upgrades of the tippmann line (for regulators/barrels... not so much on the bottomline). The X7s and phenoms seemed to focus on milsim appeal rather than performance upgrades (of course the phenoms nod to the old E-mags of days past was brilliant). Now they can simplify their manufacturing base by upping the A-5 with stock parts from newer markers and breathe life into a well thought out marker.

I'm not sold on the new grip though. It seems to not be compatible with the older-style A-5 grips... so much for getting a used E-grip or RT for this one.
The arsenal: AGD ETAC (Thompson SMG), Tippmann Phenom (MP-5A4), Digicam AGD Minimag, Bob Long Vice, Ariakon ACP 2.0, Brass Eagle Stingray II (E-11), Airstar Nova 700, Azodin Kaos, DP F7

Ahh hahaha, I remember that...

Also, what is so "new" about the cocking handle?

This to me just looks like an attempt to get more life out of the A-5. It was fine the way it was.
