You can use iron sights. Just don't plan on hitting anything beyond 50 yards or so if you don't have an adjustable riser.

Using iron sights is all about consistency and practice. Anything up to 100 yards is easily doable, but if you're not familiar with real steel iron sights to start with it'll take a lot more time (and fsr) to match the consistency you would get with a red dot.

The best part about red dots it that you keep both eyes open so you have a full field of view. To me that's critical for paintball.

Is that a LEGIT 50 yards or a "standard paintballer guesstimate" 50 yards? Not busting balls, just seriously asking since I've seen people refer to a 50 foot distance as 50 yards before. 150 feet still leaves you pretty much out of effective range for anyone shooting regular paint without having to bored and camping out in the backfield. Have you actually tried using irons AJ? Legitimately curious as I was thinking about trying out a Winchester 1894 style leaf-sight with my H7 when I'm done mounting it in the stock.

I use iron sights on my .22 and thats about it. I only use that for squirrels and other little varmints so its all pretty close range. I'm sure with a little practice I can figure them out. I'm going to try a red dot and iron sights. I don't think i really want to go as far as using a scope though.

I personally think a scope in the truest sense of the word is overkill. I'd lean more towards a red dot/holographic, or even one with a lower power magnification for those super long shots.

AJ, my TA riser is actually my rear iron sight.

The little notch acts perfectly. I had it set up for about 70yds before I started dicking around with it again. It worked well.

Yea I've done that too lol. I just ordered some cheapo backup iron sights off of amazon for closer engagements. They're 45 degree angled and go off the left side of the gun. All I need to do is make a scope mount and I'll be all set.

George and I were over Simon's house when we first got our SR-1's and were shooting at a 2 by 2 archery target at 100 yards.

I had a FSR riser and could hit it with ease. George had flip up iron sights on a flat rail. He could only shoot about half way while using the sights.

The key is an adjustable riser not so much what type of sight you use.

I love iron sights on the SR-1, but this is so much more fun. I went for the combo strictly because I wanted both options. The arch in a scope is tricky so Understand that. The fiber optic sight more than makes up for any short comings the scope may have it is very nice and easy to use quickly and accurately.
