Paintball Risers - Tiberius Arms and Killjoy Industries

Because of the relatively low velocities of paintballs when compared to other projectiles, they experience a large arc in their trajectory at typical engagement ranges. This renders many traditional aiming accessories almost completely useless, as the user is often unable to sight-in the scope/red dot etc. to an appropriate engagement range.

The solution to this problem is the use of risers with adjustable pitch.

Killjoy Industries currently sells such a riser, originally designed by LordOdin (who has several interesting Youtube videos that are worth watching). 

In the near future, Tiberius Arms will be selling an adjustable riser as well, which will complement their new First Strike-ready T9.1 very nicely.
