paintball guns arent accurate enough for sights, unless you are just gonna use it to see further ahead in like woodsball games, they are usless

I you are talking about like lazer sights I dont think anyone does because it wont work becuase paintballs arnt that accurate (ill explain in more detail if needed). And if you are talking about a sightrail that comes with Spyders and such they dont really do anything so I took mine off.

ya i have never used a site with my guns but i was in paintball shop couple days ago and there kids were buying them. store guy said that the red dot sites are pretty nice cuase you dont even have to look though site jsut hold gun infront of face and you see a red dot wherever you wanna shoot. personally i think sights are garbage and have a better chance of being shotoff then anything juse wanted to see how many poeple use em.

Sight

Not "site", a site is a place or a website!! Argh!!

Sights are stupid.

edit- I said "sites" too had to change it

As the others have said, you don't really have time for sights in speedball. As a result, I myself don't.

if you guys think that sights don't work... get a BOA barrel, or shoot a pump. I can take someone out from a good distance using my old armson pro-dot....
I can also hit a grouping the size of a CD at 20 yards with my automag and stock barrel... and that's because I aim.

if I shoot you in the hand from across the field, I think you're just as out if I spray you wildly...

lol kidpaintballer r u kidding ? lol, i don't use sights.....i don't c the need in speedball b/c there is so much paint in the air that u don't have time to aim. just point and shoot in the direction, the more u do it the better u get at it. I can hit ne thing w/ 1,2 or 3 shots now

No i do not use SIGHTS, it is all about estimating and adjusting, plus paintballs don't go where you want them all the time so SIGHTS are not neccesary.

sight dont do you much good.. the guns aint that accurate,,,, sights just make your gun a little bit bigger of a target,,, sights cause tunnel vision(you pay to much attention focusing on the sight and target and dont see the guy coming on your side to bunker you)

I have a 42mm red on my tippy. It works very well with the flatline. Do I need it? No. Does it add the bling bling to my tippy? Yes Yes. My Tippy is only used in woodsball and scenario. I use my WAS'd Impy for speedball. (No sight on the impy of course)

I use the stock sights on my a-5, it's accurate enough that generally where i'm aiming it hits(within a reasonable distance).

I have a 30mm red dot sight on my Tippy 98c. It's nice because when I want to be precise I can be fairly accurate and it helps to just range and such (I have it sighted to about 50 ft, so I can judge by how close/far the ball falls from my target)

Overall though, I don't use it much. My Sniper is vert feed, so I couldn't use a site even if I wanted to.

the stock sight on my a5 is accurate within a foot at a good distance. i never use it when i'm playing thought cause you have to stop and look to use it. i usually just snapshoot or use the paintballs like tracers.
