the weaver rail size is 7/8. No it wont fit without moding.

what do you mean by modding? is it to long or it doesnt fit the weaver mount. Heres my problem, I use Vforce profiler goggles and when i line up to see the default MR3 hand rail is blocking my sight and if i were to use the spyder red dot it would be to high above the gun to sight in. Also if i just took off the hand rail and added any red dot it would be too low. :( any ideas?

That should work as long as it's actually shorter than the carry handle.

ok now im confused, in my search for a raised mount for the red dot i found Trimount Flattop Tactical Rail Mount http://www.paintballexpress.com/get_item_sgtntrim_trimount-flattop-tactical-rail-mount.htm

and it states "Fits any 7/8" rail such as found on Tippmann A5, Model 98/ Custom Pro, X7 and BT-4 markers." at the bottem so if mr3 is 7/8 then why cant the X7 handrail fix?

Probably because of the feedneck.
