Anyone know if they make such a thing???  I dont want the hopper straight over the sight rail... I knew this was going to be a problem when I bought the marker, and I may just have to live with it.  But what I am looking for is something that moves the hopper over about 1/2-1 inch or so...  Maybe I will see if I can find a pcv elbow or something like that...  Maybe a 45 degree elbo would work.  But anyone see one of these things???   Its not that I want a diffrent hopper(though a smaller one would be nice... I seem to play with the philosophy that if theres paint in the hopper, fire on.), I just want it moved... I tried searching but didnt see anything.....

Why? You planning on putting on a scope or something? I know they make offset stands for scopes on the A-5.

Nope theres is a few other things though.

1. Off set rail

2.Hopper heightner(usually found on Ebay or homemade)

3. Use both eyes with the sight.

4. Highly recommended- Get used ot it. I thought it was gonna be a problem with my ADCO hotshot but it isn't after I played with it a few times. I got used to it. Hopper is never in the way because my brain remebers exactly where to place my eye.


Coming in May 2005!

theres no such thing, i don't think, you coul make something that makes it go up and over at an angel, which would porbably make you more of a target anyways
