oh yeah, i've heard about the "cut out part of your stock" solution, but i still want to mount a red dot.

the easiest way is to buy a raised sight rail or of-set....

Cantilever mount. Search it on ebay or other supply websites.

where'd you get yours? i'm kind of on a budget, i found one my RAP4 for 50 bucks, but i was looking more in the 20-30 dollar range.

I dont own one, but I've seen them on the MR1, and they work. I saw a bunch on eBay and they were about 20-30, maybe 40 dollars. Search there, I think that it came with a scope/red dot.

Keep in mind .... ANY gun with a CENTER FEED has actual sight picture over the barrel obstructed. With using ANY type of sighting devise that gets mounted off to the side of the ideal vertical position will suffer from parallax issues of not only the VERTICAL, but HORIZONTAL.

ALL sighting devices mounted VERTICALLY on guns that shoot with a rainbow arc will only be "On Target" at a VERY specific range.
Set the sighting device off to the side, the issues gets really BAD !! ... Unless gun is tilted putting scope/sight over the top of barrel can it actually aid you in getting the ball to target at guns sighted in range.

This is a CLASSIC case in point why many ACCURATE markers are fitted with either Right or Left sided feeds. This allows the use of center line sighting of barrel using either bare sight rails or a red dot scope.

IMO, those manufacturers making sight mounts that are either side of center are only a CRUTCH for a gun design that is not worthy of a sighting device to begin with.

Mine sits off to the side on my MR2, and while it took alittle patience, it sighted it just fine.

Spec Ops Just released a new stock for the MR series, which should take care of the clearance issues. And for only $50 bucks, you can't beat it.

Yes, I have:

1) I did attach a tail to the bolt to be able to cock it from the rear, so now I don't have to use the top knob to cock the marker. I guess you could buy a rear cocking bolt and use that instead.

Reference: http://www.ottersccustoms.com/rear-bolt.html


2) I cut the cocking knob flush with the top of the marker.

3) Installed a BSA red-dot sight.

4) Threw away the factory stock and bought a JCS RVA Combat Folding stock ($50.00) that mounts in the lower tube of the marker. It has an RVA included. It is an excellent stock and very practical. It allows you to adjust its length as well as the up and down angle, so your sight picture can be adjusted with the sight plane of the red dot.

With these changes, a marker that was totally un-ergonomical, became human form compatible.

AMEN BROTHER! Anyone see/have a link for an offset feed hopper? I want to find one that has a feed tube as far left as possible.
