Don't you think it's hard enough aiming with a stock but is almost mandatory for woodsball but you can't quite get you're sights down the barrel. Instead of hassling with extra rails or the expensive dogleg stock (good product nonetheless), I propose just to change the mask. I've been debating on a couple ideas.

My first idea is to narrow the outside of the mask and attach it closer to the head. That extra room between the jaw and the mask, In my opinion, is useless. This is primarily for a sniper so moving around would be like wearing a ski mask. Anyway, I would cut out a section and melt the material closer. I'm not sure if it will work.

My other idea is to cut out a section of the side and extend the lens using a couple sheets of fiber glass.I think it would be easier to make a sort of swining lens so I can look down the sights with two places of protection, 1 on the inside of the mask, and the swing lens. Sort of like a scope.

I think it's crazy and doubt if it will work but If you can carry it out be my guest. It's a working progress, I'll post some pictures once I get done with my first prototype. Wish me luck.

You should totally add a sight thats integrated to your mask like halo, lol.



My only worries are that you might harm the integrity of the mask and put yourself in danger.

Or you can buy a flexible or already narrow mask, like a Grill or E-vent. Or you can buy a Proto Switch FS and cut it down, like I did (careful with this option).

Be careful with the cutting idea. On some fields a ref will have you sent off field if he see's that your mask has been modified like that

Dude, JT makes a cheap $15 mask that is thin....
It uses the Spectra lens .
Also, a scope riser will help too.

you could just melt both sides (to make it look like it came that way) and put a SO mask cover on it and noboy would know that you modded it :dodgy:
