uhh, i tested a scope at Walmart but i didn't like it
Tippmann A-5, Flatline, collapsible stock, remote
works very well, less expensive than other dot sights in its class
'Weaver' style mounts (7/8"), not 'Dovetail' (3/8"), which all paintball guns have
Okay, yes, the weakness is, you can't put this baby directly on your gun. The 7/8" weaver style mounts are too big for the 3/8" dovetail sight rail on your paintball gun, so you need to either buy an adapter at your local sporting goods store (Probably going to run you $10-$12), or you just need to get an ADCO Red Dot Sight instead. ANYWAY, once you get it mounted on your gun, this thing is wonderful. I paid only $30 for this at Walmart (the ADCO goes for atleast $50, although it will mount directly on your gun), but the dot is clear as day even in the brightest sunlight conditions. The red dot is much easier to see than a laser dot, and it is much easier to use than iron sights (or 'eyeballin' it, too). You don't have to line any two points up (as with iron sights), if you see a red dot on your target, you fire. It even works if the sights view is obstructed by your hopper, because you use your other eye to view the target, your sight eye to see the red dot, and your brain mixes the two images for you.
If you can get a good price on the ADCO, just get that one since it is compatable with your paintball gun right out of the box. If you dont mind getting a $10 accessory for a $30 sight, then the BSA Red Dot will do you just fine.
BSA makes the same sight with a 3/8" dovetail, it is part number RD30/22SB for black and RD30/22SIL for silver. You might want to see if you can return/exchange yours for the correct version, they are usually priced the same.
