In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Tippmann Sports has announced a voluntary recall of the end cap assembly on certain A-5® model paintball markers. Click here to view the joint press release of the CPSC and Tippmann Sports

A-5® markers with Serial Numbers 0409301-0422200 were manufactured with end cap assemblies that may break, eject, and cause personal injury under certain conditions.

If your A-5® marker falls within this serial number range and has the “old style” end cap identified in the picture below, STOP USING YOUR A-5® MARKER IMMEDIATELY. All A-5® markers with the “new style” end cap are not the subject of this safety recall, nor are other Tippmann, US Army™ and TPN™ paintball products.

figures my A5 is one of the ones that needs a new part :( oh well was planning on buying the dead on no tools needed rear velocity adjuster anyways. Or at least a new stock. Glad it didn't explode off the end when I was test firing it, seeing as how I didn't lube the marker before hand. Thnx for the info.

Whew, I'm safe!

At first I thought it was that thing Justin was talking about in the past few weeks with things flying off and hurting people.

Lol, no the macro line fitting. DP was supposed to replace mine with their new shipment, but they lost my gun. How spiffy!
