    Get the first strike mod as well, then you can use your scope. :)

    Actually, besides the fact that they are extremely accurate, they do have a range advantage, it about doubles the effective range of a marker, and you could just muzzle load them if you don't want to use a conversion kit.

    Everything sounds fine I guess,but there really is no advantage of a scope.

    they are almost entirely for aesthetics. Given the effective range of paintball markers any sight over 1x is pretty much useless.

    You should work on getting better at sighting your own shots and knowing how your marker shoots.


    He didn't say that he was just getting the scope for the use of aiming, he said he was going to use it for scouting, spotting, or recon.

    Now my suggestion is instead of a scope, take sipbgod94's idea and get a red dot, but buy a pair of binoculars instead, for instance these from dick's sporting goods:[post="http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2287373&cp=2367438.2367821.2285520"]Bushnell H2O Series Binoculars-Choose Size[/post], which seem durable and are about as expensive as your scope for 10x or 12x magnification instead.


    Okay, but I was under the impression that the Apex adds more range compared to the FS rounds?

    Goodness no! the standard paintball with a normal barrel only travels approximately 150ft max (not that you can hit anything you're aiming at, at that range. I play sniper as well, and i'm sure most others would agree with this, if you have a decently tuned marker, you won't try and hit someone at 100ft. The Tippmann Flatline or Apex increase this range to 200ft. At these ranges its possible to get a break, but not very likely due to velocity loss. Where as the FS rounds have a range of 100 yards, (300ft) and due to the design, they maintain their velocity a little better. Are the FS rounds worth it? That depends upon you're style of play. I myself think this would benefit my style of play, since i take the disciplined OSOK. now i will obviously test this out with my marker once i can finally get my hands on the FS rounds. But back on topic, this setup seems pretty sweet, and as for the zoom, i run a 2.5x and its helped me spot some potential ambushes setup in towers we have (fools were standing at the window) Just watch out for the eye relief length! i've found mine is too long, so i have to figure out a way to modify my Longbow's stock to lengthen it. Either way, happy hunting :dodgy:

    The apex actually keeps velocity at longer ranges too. With the Apex set at max, it can get about 200 feet and still break about half the time. That's not as much as FS, but its a lot cheaper. Too bad theres not an apex-like thing for the FS, but I think that'd be excessive.

    You can get them for only $5 at Zephyr, tell if you can find a better one though.
