I'm new here.....obviously. Got started on paintball about 2 years ago and have loved the sport since. Found this forum while I was searching for a scope for my Tippmann A-5 w/flatline barrel(still looking, any suggestions?). Got a nice little area next to my place for woods paintball, which is by far my favorite style. I'm usually the sniper on my team, and any hints or suggestions are welcome.

Welcome to the forum.

Take a look at some red dot sights instead of scopes. The zoom of a scope is unecessary for paintball marker's limited range and a red dot will serve you much better.

Look around the forum and you should be able to find answers to any questions you may have.

Ok, I've read that I would either need to get an offset rail or add a stovepipe to my hopper to add a dot sight to my A-5. Which would be better?

Depends. Do you still want the ammo capacity? If so, get the offset. If not, get the Stovepipe. I've used an offset, and actually found it to be more comfortable.

The Search button is your biggest ally. It can either make the members hate you or love you, depending on if you use it or not. Use it well young one.

Yea check out the snipers corner also look here for alot of great information. As far as your Scope, go with a red-dot sight. I personaly use a Tasco Pro-point
