Hey all,


I am planning on getting a reflex sight, (I really like the way it performs, how light weight it is, and FOV), however I realized I have very little experience with them in paintball. Can anyone tell me what the best non-sun killing sight is? Do reflex's work well in sunlight even with the uv filter? Is it worth it to get the generic tube laser sights?

Thanx!

Um...

Tube laser sights and the standard ones which look somewhat like a scope, but aren't magnified. UV and stuff basically means does a reflex sight work very well out in the sun or does it fade out the dot.

I think the biggest problem with red dots and reflexes is that the bright conditons mask the dot. A bright background will seem to make a bright dot disappear.

The idea of a uv filter is new to me. It sounds like it would work. Generally speaking however, a good quality red dot sight will be visible during the day. My experience is with a Tru-Glow Red dot.

The only sights I've ever used are the tubular ones. THe BSA 30mm has worked well for me. Then again, the place I play at is generally well shaded by all the trees.

I suppose an occluded sight would be good, it actually becomes brighter when the sun's brighter, hard to see when it's dark though.
Yeah I use an M-16 grip, wanna fight about it?
