watch the pro players, its not like they have sights or anything they just aim down the side of their marker. It works really well once you get used to it.

I'm not entirely familiar with the part, but if it is just a ball bearing you can probably find one at the local hardware store.
I like iron sights. Most sights are made too elaborate for paintball, but I do appreciate something simple like a bead sight or a simple rear leaf and front notch. A lot are a fan of just aiming down the barrel, and that works just fine, especially in tight situations. But having a simple sight does add a little extra precision - especially if you're looking to hit on the first shot.

Go to http://www.tippmann..../ContactUs.aspx and shoot them and email asking them about it. my safety switch broke on my A5, i got the part number and submitted an email asking where i could find the part and they mailed me on free of charge. if it's small enough and cheap enough i think they'd do the same.

QFT - they are pretty good about replacing parts for free, especially if it's broke. My friend had the same issue w/ his rear sight... the bearing just inexplicably shot out, w/ the spring following, when he was cleaning his marker. Fortunately it hit him & dropped on the work surface. It was a pain in the butt to get back together though. I'd see if they may be willing to send you the whole rear sight.
You bought the brand, not my allegiance.
