The way I see it, I need an "FSR optic (dot or reticle type)" to provide me with several things:

What is the range to the target?
How much do I need to elevate to reach that range?
How much will my rounds spread at that range?

You need a fairly large difference in angle to compensate for targets at different ranges. For example, the Tiberius APR adjusts a full degree of angle with every click (most firearms optics adjust .5 - 1 /60th of a degree per click). Due to the relatively high arc these rounds take, there is not much difference between the first 1-3 clicks.

I am not going with anything adjustable, I don't expect to have much time to find a target, adjust sights, then line up and take a shot, I will just need to practice up and get used to the trajectory of FS rounds. I have got quite good with regular paint so I am hoping the FSR transition won't be too bad. The fancies I will get will be a red dot or halo sight.

If people know there is a long range gun on the other team, they will be less likely to leave themselves wide open circling range shots. The SR1, in reality, will be effective just by its presence on the field in that it will make those people that are hanging back "out of range" feel less comfortable there and either move up or stay farther back. I imagine it will be just as useful doing that as it will being used to eliminate players, getting your enemy to change their strategy to something they are not used to is a great tactic, take then out of their comfort zone.

To each his own Crazy . But you may have more time than you think if you are trying to pick off the right target from range and out of the way of the major fire-fights.

UV has a TON of experience with FSR in both little and big games. But agreed we all need to get a set-up that we feel comfortable with. I also dont fancy the adjustable rail mount either.

It would also be interesting to get someone who has done well at one of those Top Paintball Sniper (which UV competed in) games and get their take on optics. What makes sense what doesnt from their perspective.

I intend to get a SR-1.... optics wise, iron sights or a Armson red dot.

Scopes are neat but to me useless.

Believe it or not this worked.

It wouldn't work with a mask though unless you had a low stock.

Are you just surprised that it works at all? Or does it work better for you than having it near the back like normal?

I am glad i have 2 sets of nice old flex's with IZE bottoms, they are what you need for stocked guns, they worked nicely when i did the KP thing and realized it wasn't my style. I love my old brown IZE's.

I'm suprised it worked at all.

We had it on the old style carry handle mount and the adjustment was almost maxed out at 45 yards.

We moved it on the barrel and were able to move to the 50 yard mark and aim dead on.

So I'm puzzled as to why we didn't have to angle the Red Dot.


We were shooting paintball.

to windy for testing the first strike
