I am admittedly a paintball n00b. I played woodsball once with my office and got HOOKED! Bought an A-5, 2 co2 tanks, BDU's, combat boots, a mask.. etc. to prepare for Oklahoma D-Day.
I recently purchased a red-dot sight off Ebay, but didn't notice until it was too late that it's a Weaver mount. I haven't bought any kind of rail for the A-5 and hadn't planned on it this early on. Now I find myself in a slight predicament. If I want the sight to mount, I either need to buy a rail, handle w/ rail, shroud w/rail, or dovetail mounts.
What do you figure is the cheapest/most efficient way out of this mess? My wife is already unhappy with what I've spent so far and I need to gauge my next purchase carefully.

Thanks,
-Sean

Thanks for the info. Kind of what I already feared, though.

Actually a riser is not only your best bet, it will actually be the most beneficial. Since the ball arcs, and the red dot is most useful for aiming longshots the riser allows the line of sight to line up with the flight path better.

Go here for all the info you need
