RECALL AND REPAIR OF END CAP ASSEMBLIES
ON CERTAIN TIPPMANN® A-5® PAINTBALL MARKERS

Date: March 12, 2009

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.


The serial number for your A-5® marker is located on the left side of the marker near the front grip.
