FSR Sight options and reviews
 
So far the options I have seen/heard, and would like to hear reviews on:

Iron sights:
-ladder sights
-flip up sights

Red dot:
-no rail
-with adjustable rail
-with a front sight
-with an iphone/camera

Crossbow scope(with adjustable fps settings for the projectile)
-Hawke, no rail
Hawke with adjustable rail
-any othes?

Standard real steel magnified Scopes
-Shotgun/pistol/rifle scopes
-iphone/camera setups and apps

Rails
-Permanently Angled rails for Barrel Droop(typically airgun)
-Adjustable rails

Items from other hobbies?
-Airgun/Pellet
-Airsoft with hop-up
-etc?

This is for people to post up what they have tried, and list some pros/cons of each style, make some comparisons, and give some ratings.

Lets say rating things like:
weight
reticles
magnification as suited to FSR
built in range finder's usefullness
Battery usage
Usefull elevation adjustments within FSR ranges?
Parallax
Eye Relief

etc

how about throwing out some ratings for the different aspects(1-5)?

Please don't just automatically assume that one style of sight won't work without testing it out. Or that what doesn't work for one person might not just fit another person's style of play. FSR will be creating many more specific play styles than just a blanket title of "sniper"

The FSR Riser is the easiest way that I've found to shoot First Strikes effectively at range.

The sight you put on the FSR is up to you.

I've noticed red dots were easier to see where the shot went over using a x4 or whatever scope. It was also easier to see if I actually hit the target when using a 3-9 scope, but couldn't tell where my shots were going if I was way off.

If I had a spotter per say I'd go with a 3-9 scope. Running solo like I tend to do on missions I go with a red dot.

And which Riser have you liked?

The tiberius? killjoy? hha optimizer? and I think I have seen some airgun ones as well...

I'm also interested what each adjustable riser's ability to adjust angle is? Can they all hit 80 yards?

I have a crossbow scope and the tib. adjustable riser. I use the riser to rough in range then use the ladder in the reticle of the scope to walk in the shots.

It's not a light setup but it's pretty comfortable to shoot. The riser gets the scope up high enough to get into with a mask on.

I like having slight magnification for spotting down range.

I have the Tiberius adjustable riser and the 4x32 scope. I like the riser for adjust-ability. I like the scope for seeing the impact. I do not like the magnification of the scope for tracking where my shot went. At 75 yards the majority of the flight path is not visible through the scope so it you clip a branch or wind takes you off track you have no idea what happened unless you have a spotter. I am planning on going to iron sites on top of the adjustable rail as soon as I can find something that will work for me.

I was looking at a 2 x 42 red dot sight.

With the 2x magnification and larger 42mm lens, I think it may do well. The better question is... What do you all think?

If money is no object ty you could always try a flip out magnifier. I think some of those 2x red dots also have a removable magnifier lense

If money were no object, I would purchase Perfect Circle and make FSR to sell at cost. ;)

Well here's hoping

Got to try somethings for myself.

Version 1 tiberius adjustable riser
I'm not sure what his scope's elevation was set at, but I found that 100' was 6 clicks.
150' was 8 clicks.
200' was 11 clicks.

Do the killjoy riser require two hands to use or can you one hand it like the tib rails?

Without adjusting the rail riser, a 4x scope still allows you to see where a round can hit when it's off by 50 feet(elevation wise). So if you learned your scope well enough, you could learn where to aim for 50' closer or further without adjusting the rail.
