you gotta be careful with anything that actually emits a laser....most fields I know of have banned them due to potential for eye related injury from the beam.

just a thought.

Laser sights are horrible sights for any projectile device, especially something as inaccurate as a paint ball marker. Movies and marketing have established a different set of physics for these sights than the real world offers unfortunately.

I second estin's comment...movie physics ain't real physics.

also, a laser sight emits a linear beam from point of origin....the second you aim the gun upwards to "lob" a shot, that laser is gonna be pointing at the sun/the moon/or the great flying spaghetti monster in the sky...

unless your target is level-barrel aiming distance or closer (or below you), that accuracy will begin to suffer if you rely on the laser for aiming.

You will also never be able to see a laser in daylight.

Hmm. That's too bad. I was aware of the 1 mW laser requirement so it doesn't hurt people's eyes, but I could see why fields wouldn't want to take that chance.

So red dot 1x scope is what we're talking about? Okay. I'll definitely have to consider that as an idea. I'm not really too hot on the idea of batteries right now. I'll probably put the $50 into paint right now and work on the muscle memory approach for accuracy.

Building muscle memory will always help, even if you add a sight later. Armson is a nice battery free option that works quite well as long as you have two good eyes. Very underrated sights.

Agree 100%. eBay can be a good place to get a good used one at a reduced price. I got most of mine there for about $50. Only problem is used ones don't come up for sale every day.

I think I found my next upgrade. 10-round tube just ain't cutting it for me. I want to try 15!

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to swap out the stick feed and reuse the plastic feed mount? I've tried with mine but don't want to go to excessive force before I know what I'm doing.

^ yes the metal tube just unscrews from the feed block. Usually a leather glove will provide enough grip to unscrew it.

I found that the 15-round feeds were a bit long for me. I ended up cutting mine down to about 12 before replacing it with a one piece feed.
