Sniper's should also have a very light equipment setup, making it easier to crawl away as quickly as possible, etc. If you have a 10 lb. Tippy, or any gun, your not going to be able to crawl away as fast if you had a Phantom, etc. (I'm just using examples)
If your going to reverse your tank, you might as well not, and also cut the stock. Your gun will sit just as high, and tanks are even easier to look down your line of sight. If you run remote, you can pretty much drop right down to the ground, and its even further if you have a air-through stock (lack of ASA, not really significant though).
It's a good idea....but then again it's not a good idea for snipers.

^I think I'll just leave it that way. It suits me.

Here's the pic goodness:
I can only surmise that the people who voted that it was stupid or not viable for woodsball play have not played with a gun set up like this. I play only woodsball and run all my markers (all 'mags) like this.

Why be so oblivious to the fact that speedball has some things to offer our type of playing? Do you have some reason to oppose being quick, mobile, and low profile? Please explain the irrational belief that in order to be successful or have fun in scenario and woodsball, you have to carry an incredibly long, loud and heavy marker. Granted, I've since gone remote with that particular gun setup, but when I get my Mini, (Yes, a "speedball" marker) I'll probably go back to a tank on gun, and I'll try my damndest to mount it backwards. (It may prove difficult with their design, but I'll try.) I don't foresee a time in my future where I will want to play in another game of speedball. I've played plenty, and just dont care for it. But I still see the value in playing with many of the facets of the speedball genre.

So I think its a great setup for improved mobility and agility, but nothing that provides an advantage to a sniper who should be more stationary and focused on accuracy and stealth anyway.

now i have heard a lot of snipers complain about things getting snagged on things. for the idiots that must use their markers as weedwackers, shorter balance makes your marker easier to controll while whipping it around.
next, for the stock thing, i will point out something that has been forgotten by paintballers for a long time. if you dont have a stock you should have your gun (marker) flush against the forearm of your off hand. this gives you $h!t loads more stability! there you go... no need for a stock, especialy considering that you get almost the same accuracy as with a stock (almost). now you can go on for as long as you want saying "why not get the best? it could be just enough to make the difference!" im telling you now, this is paintball, we dont need stocks because the recoil is so light. and remember, paintball, no uber long range shots. same diff.
and back to you having no immagination! all you need is a bipod in the front and you have uncanny (especialy with this setup) stability! and as this is paintball, you have no need for stocks because there is no significant recoil.
the "craning your neck" thing... these special ops guys are just experienced players giving there opinion based on what they have observed in paintball games (give me a citation, cuz i know im right). in reality many of these guys have had no formal training (citation needed). now in my experience, craning your neck is only uncomfortable, not a disadvantage (no citation needed). this is true because in my experience there is almost no time of year where the leignth of the grass on the field is taller than a paintball pllayer kneeling down, and ducking. this is an aceptional diference from the grass that is only as high as a paintball player that you all seem to be setting up your gear for. you see its kinda funny cuz i always figured if the military was interested in low profile then the scopes would be on the side, the mags would be on the side, and the bullets would be ejected out the bottom of the rifle (or you just use a small clip under the rifle, but the scopes still on the side). now if the military doesnt want a change that drastic, nor has ever tested it (citation needed), then i guess i dont want it either.
please read this (in its entirety) before you flame this thread.
