I use a cheap ebay 4x32 shotgun/pistol scope. No riser. The elevation is adjusted to the max range. It has multiple aim points for different ranges. I found that the longest range is about 65 yards and anything under 25 yards is dead on the center of the scope.

It is mounted low to the marker and I use a killjoy roc stock so I can aim with a full mask on.

Oh and tymcneer please buy perfect circle and drive these costs down...we need sub .15 cent per round prices.

No because then there would be too many people using them. Just use the profits to add more space to the shop.

I used a tib. riser with the optimizer and tib 4 power scope today.Tracking after 75 yds is bad.When I up grade I may use a 3x9 for spoting and shot on the lowest setting or use one of the hawk crossbow scopes.
The riser is set at 1 click and I use the optimizer for adjustment for 50 to 90yds(zeroed) 110 or over I go with more clicks down on the riser.Range estimation is critical as I found out today.I dropped a few players at 100 yds I used my range finder,had a spotter and got right on.Remember also the fsr's time to target at 100 yds it's 3 seconds.
I am finding out it's alot of work shooting out that far. But fun !!

Can't wait to try this out at the scenario this weekend!






It's a BB gun scope, 4x32. The rail is off an old Trracer and I ran a stock TPX bolt through it and put the nut inside the clamshells where the small clear plastic piece was. On the back I just have it secured with a ziptie which will hopefully last me through the scenario. I was going to use a 2nd bolt but there isn't enough room in the back half of the clamshell. I may move it to the barrel block and then add a long rail on top to move the scope back.

I also want to put my A-5 folding stock on it.

Camera Scope System

So far all I see people talking about are various types of
either red dot scopes, low power rifle scopes or a type of
bow sight. What about using a digital camera instead?

Here's a video showing how a guy out in the NW has
come up with just such a system.

Note: If this video doesn't make a believer out of you I don't
know what will.

I think that's jjron's video. To be fair he is using a scope with his camera. Love that video though.

Yes, it is his video. Wasn't aware he was also using
a scope, thought he was using the camera's zoom
feature function.

I did some FS sniping in this video, at the start and then towards the end. Score a few hits and scare off some creepers. The scope wasn't very helpful on the pistol. Needs a riser first of all and a stock to brace with. Worked well when I sighted over the top and eventually removed the scope.

Ive been looking over scope options, range finders and risers...i think im going to go with a mil dot scope so i can use the mil dots to estimate range based off of known sizes of objects. Anyone have a good mil dot scope to recommend, i think a 3x9 or 4x32 would be good. Im not near my mask right now..anyone know the average height of a paintball mask in inches, im thinking it will be about 9. I know they will vary be manufacturer and model but some mask types and height measurements would help. This will require a little math but is cheaper than a range finder and doesnt require a spotter.

I could be wrong on this but its been discussed whether or not laser range finders should even be allowed on fields. Iirc the laser is not eye safe.
