    That would likely be fine. Emeks are a great entry level option if it's in the budget - lightweight, soft shot, gentle on paint, etc. Does your son have protective gear and everything?

      I second the emek! great little markers, good for a budding paintballer with plenty of room to grow into (upgrade wise, valve, triggers, bodies) add the PAL loader system and you have a great combo.

        I agree. I really have a hard time recommending Tippmanns to new players these days. There are better options now that will remain relevant for much longer than an inline blowback. If the Emek isn't in the budget, an Enmey is a good cheaper option.

          They should work fine, but watch a disassemblly video first. Make sure its the same model a5 btw. Your son has to be able to main his own gear. And with the price of a new a5 you can get used and new markers that perform and are easier to maintain a lot better. Big thing going against the a5 is the cyclone. You will grow to hate that giant tumor sticking off the side of the marker. The enmey and Emek are great but id say get a cheap mech blowback like a spyder or other STBB's and inlines too. Simpler and perform just as good.

          The important thing is just get good gear to go with it. A good feeding electric hopper, a nice carbon fiber 4500psi tank (unless your field only has 3000psi fills), a good fitting thermal lenses mask, comfortable pants and jersey/shirts, arm and DEFINITELY knee pads, and anything else that will actually help you play. Well help may be the wrong word, more like you won't be hindered by bad gear. The marker just need to shoot straight and feel good in your hands.

            I prefer to just send the kids out in protective gear only without a marker. They they really get to know how avoid being shot. After a few sessions I will then allow them to use a paintball gun, but they only have one ball for each opponent. Need to learn how to make their shots count. Once they complete this training buy the the fastest shooting space dildo available so they can ignore all the valuable skills they have learnt and just destroy newbs. /s

              My son and I really like his Azodin Kaos. It's kindof like a modern Spyder (if I understand correctly). Super simple mech marker, shoots well, has cocker barrel threads.

              We had a Tippmann 98c originally, but he (and honestly I too) would get frustrated taking the clamshell apart and getting it all back together properly when cleaning/lubing. His brain is made of gears and springs so there was no way he was NOT going to take apart the gun everytime we plink with it. The Kaos lends itself much better to being dis/re-assembled by a 5 year old.

                The Mini / Axe are pretty solid as well, and the smaller frame is good for kids. Pretty simple to maintain as well. My local field uses them as their upgrade rentals and they get plenty of abuse and keep on ticking. If you go the mech route the Emek is tough to beat; I plan on picking one up for myself at some point.

                  The reason why the Emek gets so much attention these days is because it really is that good. For a long time, people have been told that they can buy a Spyder or a Tippmann then buy a better marker later. The Emek eliminates that step altogether by giving a new player something they can stick with from the very beginning -- saving them money in the long run. There's a reason why you see these things everywhere from being used as field rentals all the way up to the podium at mechanical tournaments. As for maintenance, these things are almost completely toolless unless you need to get into the frame or the HPR. The GRN body makes them extremely durable too. Scratches don't show easily and cleanup is super simple. Unless you're on a budget and you can get one used cheap, I really don't see the point in getting a blowback as a starter anymore. I wouldn't even consider a brand new A5 to be a worthwhile option at this point.

                    Ooof, just aged him 25+ years!

                    If you are buying new then I would go with the Emek. The price difference is only $20 on Ansgear. Most importantly don't cut corners on the mask. It will go a long way toward enjoying paintball more when you can see good and don't have fogging issues.

                    I say no to the a5. They are large, long, heavier than they need to be and are rather difficult to tear down for a new player. Hell I've owned probably 20 of them and they are still not fun to tear down for me, I think the design is bad

                    Your also are stuck with the cyclone feeder and can't do much about it if it becomes a problem. The cyclone is the reason I tell people if you really want a tippmann, get a 98c over the a5, you can put any hopper on it and keep that hopper when you move on

                    That aside, look into the azodin blitz. Many more features than the a5 and roughly the same price tag, it's smaller, lighter and easier to work on. It's a fantastic starting platform and makes a great backup down the road

                    As for the emek, I won't say it's bad by any means, I just think the pricetag is high for a first marker and it's harder to diagnose any issues for a new player because of the valve design, which just means you may end up spending more on repair bills should you have any issues because you need to send it in.

                      Actually I would say the Emek is easier to troubleshoot and repair. Most of the local shops know how to work on them and it is usually just an oring replacement. The bolt twists out and can be cleaned and lubed in a few minutes, without using tools. Also, the PE Tech Hub on Facebook gives out free repair advice everyday. They are terrific at fixing issues quickly and completely. They are PE techs that maintain the page and are extremely knowledgeable.

                      I love my Emek. I never wanted to use anything but my electronic marker until I got the it. Now that is my primary and everything else is the backup. I just got a Axe Pro last week and went to play. Used it half a day and then switched back to the Emek. I got rid of my Shocker for the same reason. I really love the way the Emek performs. Plus for kids, they won't tear through cases of paint like they will with a Mini or something electronic. I won a LV 1.6 and I am not sure it will become my primary either. As good as it is I just prefer playing with the Emek.

                      I’m a big fan of tippmanns and there billet proof in-line blow back system. I even enjoyed the A5s I have had. I still love Shooting the pro-carbine I have had for 20+ years. But having said that I would not recommend an A5 to some one of smaller stature. There kinda heavy and bulky.

                      I never have used one but I too hear great things about the Emek and want one myself but there too expensive here for my taste. The GOG eNMEy is a great shooter but a little less reliable and very cheap feeling. So I would likely suggest A simple stack tubed blowback (Like an Azodin). They still works great as a first marker. I picked one up myself just for something different and I been playing a long time. Azodins been a great company and I have had my Azodin Kp2 pump for nearing 10 years now. It’s a great shooter and very reliable.

                      so in summery

                      -EMek if ya can afford it
                      -GOG eNMEy if need cheaper and prioritize performance
                      -Azodin Kaos if need cheap and prioritize reliability and quality.

                      AGD 68 Automag, AGD ULE 68 Automag, Azodin KDII, Azodin KPII, GOG V1 eNMEy, Sheridan PGP2K, Tippmann Pro/Carbine, Tippmann SL68II, Umarex TR50.
