I have an EOtech 552 A65, I was never in the market for a site, but through some lucky circumstances I wound up with the opportunity to get one for cheap.
Thing is Im terrified of useing it in paintball. There was a little artical on the EOtech website praizing it for its ability to continue to perform after an officer had his broken by a direct paintball hit " Yes broken " during a training exersize.


First of all, I guarantee you that he was not using a paintball marker during that training exercise. I'm almost 100% sure that what those police officers were using was Simunition. It's pretty much a paintfilled plastic bullet fired from a low-power 9mm cartridge from real firearms that have been converted to fire the simuntion. Trust me, those things fly fast(360-490 fps), and hurt when they hit you, but, man! are they fun to fire. I've used and seen real EoTech scopes, and trust me, unless someone is running really, really, hot, (like 300fps+), there is no way that regular paintballs are going to break your EoTech, I mean, I've seen those things dropped out of helicopters and fall on rocks and not break.

So Im sitting on it for now, brainstorming on how to make a see through cover to take those direct paintball hits which are guarenteed.


If you have the money, and YOU feel it's worth it, go for it.

P.S. Moderators, I'm sorry for the necro, but I just wanted to clear this up. Nevermind it's a sticky, and I guess you can't really necro those. :P lol

They are very nice, but I don't like to use them for the main reason that they require a battery and batteries run out. Right now I own a Trijicon Reflex sight and I love it like no other.

They are very nice to!
The only down side is they are "only good for 15 little years", due to the tritium wearing out. lol
I hope you took that last statment as a joke, even though it is true!

What do you guys think about using an ACOG site for paintball?

Well, suposing you have a spare $500-$800 sight laying around, why not? lol
The only thing that I would be worried about it the amount of magnification of the ACOG.

Oh, and by the way guys, if you want free info on trijicon sights, you can simple log onto www.trijicon.com and request a free info pack.
They go above and beyond with their huge brochures. Thats right, they send you a folder worth of color spread brochures on each individual sighting system they have, and an intire price guide all for free. Took em a while to get mine to me, but I was amazed at the level of support they give their products.

What did you buy, and what brand?

Just for a warning, I will tell you this. If you buy airsoft simulation sights, like the EOTech, and AimPoint copies, dont expect to get the quality behind the looks. This is why the real thing is so much more expensive.
I to have been a victim of this deal.
Seems like a good thing, till you realize the windage and elevation adjustments dont really work.
Its almost deceiving how they are put together....
They are usually real metal, and the adjustment dials turn and click like they would do with the real deal.
However, this feature will often have little effect, or not work at all.
Another way to tell if they are legit or not, is to take a good look at the reticle's appearance.
With the cheap look-a-like versions, you'll notice that the dot will tend to be fuzzy looking, and or will have glare issues off the glass pieces. Also the MOA will usually be larger than normal at 6-8 MOA.
A good sight should naturally be adjustable, and the reticle should appear very crisp and clear, usually in a 2-4 MOA size, without any glare issues.
Note that even a high quality sight will glare a bit if the brightness setting is set to a higher level. This is why they are adjustable.
The only time you would want a bright setting, would be in open bright daylight situations.
Otherwise, a medium to low setting acts best for shaded cover, to low light circumstances.
Lower settings will also saves battery life.

For the money involved, its hard to beat the $30 BSA 30mm sights. They are quality built, and will withstand a beating.
I have had mine for a good while now, and it hasnt let me down yet. Very clear, and everything works as it should.

Waste of money. You don't need that amount of magnification in paintball....that's why I have a Trijicon Reflex. Personally, If I were you, just get a Bushnell Red Dot sight. It'll fill all your needs, and serve you well. The main reason why I bought the Trijicon in the first place is the fact that I'm going to be using it in the Army. Being able to use it during paintball was a nice second effect too. :laugh:

I have a BT-4 with a ton of mods and an e-grip. I was wondering if this would fit on my rail.

http://www.specialopspaintball.com/shop/pr...035&CAT=108

I'm planning on getting this scope for it.

And if not, what riser from this site would fit on my rail?

Thanks.
