It would just be easier to forget about your sight. Just learn to aim down the side of your marker.

True.

watch the pro players, its not like they have sights or anything they just aim down the side of their marker. It works really well once you get used to it.

Dont wory about it, I havent used mine in years. You can most likely get a new one from Tippnann, maybe for free.

You can get a replacement on Tippmann Parts for $1: http://www.tippmannp...ct-p/gp2532.htm It even comes with free shipping.

I'm not entirely familiar with the part, but if it is just a ball bearing you can probably find one at the local hardware store.

I like iron sights. Most sights are made too elaborate for paintball, but I do appreciate something simple like a bead sight or a simple rear leaf and front notch. A lot are a fan of just aiming down the barrel, and that works just fine, especially in tight situations. But having a simple sight does add a little extra precision - especially if you're looking to hit on the first shot.

That free shipping kicks in when your order reaches $100 IIRC.

Go to http://www.tippmann..../ContactUs.aspx and shoot them and email asking them about it. my safety switch broke on my A5, i got the part number and submitted an email asking where i could find the part and they mailed me on free of charge. if it's small enough and cheap enough i think they'd do the same.

QFT - they are pretty good about replacing parts for free, especially if it's broke. My friend had the same issue w/ his rear sight... the bearing just inexplicably shot out, w/ the spring following, when he was cleaning his marker. Fortunately it hit him & dropped on the work surface. It was a pain in the butt to get back together though. I'd see if they may be willing to send you the whole rear sight.

Im sure you can get a new one, but as for the scope, it depends on how accurate ur marker is as far as ur barrel and well general accuracy. If u know ur gun is accurate then go with the scope, but if u dont think its accurate then get a new rear sight, but its all up to you. Go with what u feal is right, and if you have to follow ur wallet :unsure:
