I like Reticle. I prefer a Mil-Dot reticle cuz you can adjust to alot of things on the fly if you know how to use it. There is an Air-gun Mil-Dot Reticle out there for those that think I'm carrying a freakin Leopold scope or somethin. :(

I think a mil-dot would be better. I'm not too fond of the red-dots. I just can't seem to find one.
Where can I get a mil-dot 1x30 (no batts)?

If the person on the other end of your gun does not walk away from the game eagerly anticipating the next game because of your actions,
you have failed as a paintballer. Put this in your sig to help spread the word.

Well Ive tried alot of red dot scopes, and every time I used them I cant even see the dot. I dont usually play in low-light situations but during the day I cant even see the dot at all. Ive tried several scopes but I still cant see a thing during the day.

I'm trying to find a short reticle scope with a magnification of at least 1x-2x
I have the SpecOps NCSTAR 1x30 T-Style 4 Reticle Scope.

A clone of the NCStar HALO you spoke of would be a good choice.

I've heard lately of problems with the HALO, specifically a weak LED. I happened across a clone - or rather a sight the HALO "is a clone of" - and it works exceedingly well.

On any of the three cross-hair/circle/dot combination reticles, it's easy to acquire a target because the dot is highlighted by the surrounding reticle.

DON'T get a sight with magnification Tritan. They're more difficult to use taking more time to sight which is awful on a paintball field and they offer no advantages to a 1x reticle.

red dot. a reticle is harder to sight in and much slower. magnification isnt useful in paintball except to locate enemies from afar. to accomplish this you could just bring a pair of binoculars. a red dot is lower profile and seems to feel a little more natural.
