I know we've all said scopes with a zoom are bad for paintball,(i'm guilty of it myself) but I want one anyway. I already have a red-dot on my MR1, but for my longbow, I want one with a little bit of a zoom, that can fit on a weaver rail. maybe 2x or 3x magnification, and good eye relief. Something like an ACOG, but not as expensive. Suggestions?

Look for a pistol scope, they are made to have a large eye relief and you can get them in 2-3X. When it comes to specific scopes I can't help you much though. Good luck!

Get a rifle scope with a long eye relief, that way you can get the magnification your wanting. I myself have two UAG 2-7x32 LONG EYE RELIEF scopes I bought off Ebay.

Do you want tunnel vision? An actual scope is just about the best thing you can do if you want to subconsciously ignore your left and right flanks :D

But thats just my observations.

I'm not gonna sit there staring through the scope for long periods of time. I know enough to check my flanks and listen for the other team. :D Thats why I wanted a low power scope. Just something with a tiny bit of zoom, so I can see farther, but still zero it for like 60 feet.

Don't scopes focus where they're zeroed? Or am I mis-analyzing?

I've always looked through scopes with both eyes open. That's how I was taught to use them. Now with the long eye relief scopes I have, the eye relief is like eight inches so I can actually see all around me as well.

yeah, i was told to by my pops, so you dont lose your depth perception. oh, scopes focus on whatever is visible through the eye piece.
that scope looks like a good'n

Hey Weigel21, is the eye relief long enough on the UAG scope to see while wearing a profiler? It does have weaver rails right?

I use a little BB gun scope and it works fine for me. Its a Daisy 4x15 and it gives a small zoom amount so when i look down the scope everything is closed out. Its worked great for me and can be bought very cheaply.
