I'm planning on getting this scope for it.
And if not, what riser from this site would fit on my rail?
By looking at it, I would say yes that riser should work, but be sure to measure the width of the rail to find out.
Look down a bit on the first page, and you'll see where I menchoned the way to identify what your rail is closest to by measurements. Most common weaver and picatinny rails should be about 7/8 of an inch in width.
Yes if your reffering to single glass plane sights, like the ATN Digital sights for example.
Heres the page of the thread with pictures.
Pretty expensive for a piece of .125 lexan and a little weaver mount if you ask me.
Make your own. You can get lexan sheets all over the place. Search it at google and you'll see what I mean.
You can also use a scope stop bumper for the mount.

I got this sight recently:
It is from NC Star and I have to say it is really well made. I actually broke it shortly after getting it and they are holding up to their reputation of having a top notch warranty by sending me a whole new unit.
I have found it very effective for short/mid range shooting at moving/active targets. One thing people don't consider is that you can use the sight to get a reference point. For example if you are putting paintballs where you need to, maybe your recticle is 12 inches above your target. If you are taking return fire and have to take cover you can reference that point (where your recticle was) and use it when you snap back up to shoot again. You don't have to guess you have a really good chance of putting your first snap shot on target.
Here is the riser I mounted it on, I find everything works really well together on the field and feels very natural.

And glad you liked the thread. I figure this would be good for those in question, and would help people make a smarter decision before purchasing something without knowledge behind it. Its sort of a personal underground fight against those who say sights and paintball dont mix, or they have no value. Either argument they want to throw at me should be resolved with an answer in this thread. If I missed anything you guys want better explained or looked into, be sure to let me know.

Although I found one for a 3/8" dove rail here>
Scroll all the way to the bottom.
I may just have to bring a part like this to the market with my company.

- What is this 1x25, 1x30, 1x45? What do I want?
- Mounting gotchas - What if my hopper is in the way? Should I move my hopper or move my sight?

- You don't have to line the dot up with anything but your target, as opposed to a normal iron sight where you have to line up the front and rear sight. This, of course, allows you to line up with your target quicker.
- You aim with both eyes open
- The dot "moves with you", so you don't have to look at the sight dead on
- The advantage of a bigger lense is that you can look at the sight from a wider angle
It's funny, but in all the reading I did online I never found an explanation of the extreme basics of red dot sights!
Of course, the reason I'm posting here is because I think you have the best sight thread out there... and I'm sure there are other people reading this with the same basic questions as me.

1) Is there an advantage to having a sight that has both red and green dot choices?
2) If you have a stock that drops low enough that you could use a iron sights on your gun even with a mask, do you still need a riser or would it depend on what kind of sight you used?
Sorry this is a couple of months difference on the posts.
