Using a stock with a mask?

Hey, there, 'Nation!
I recently got a collapsible stock for my A5 paintball marker, and it seems to have slight issues with my mask. Any tips for sighting straight down the receiver with a mask on? Also, would getting a riser-rail help at all (like the one from RAP4)? I just want to be able to fire accurately with a stock, and currently I cannot sight very well...

On a side note, is it normal to have a low velocity after installing a stock? Because mine's shooting about 230, which is slightly annoying (I haven't messed with the adjuster, and I was almost out of air, but I don't think that should've make too much of a difference).

I don't remember my velocity dropping that much when installing mine but it can be fixed easily.

I know SpecOps paintball had a mount that moved any sights to a 45* offset to the left but I'm not sure if it's still available.

The only way to get better at snap shooting is practice. Sights won't help you that much.

Sights are all looks. But if want to use them, getting something to offset AND raise your site will make a big difference. Other than that, there's no other option than to get a new mask that hugs your face or get a new stock with a section cut out like the older air-thru stocks or dogleg? stocks.

Your velocity shouldn't have dropped when putting on a stock.

I think the reason it dropped is that the spring tension isn't the same. I adjusted it, and it works fine now.

Yeah, I figured out that if I tilt my head and/or the marker, I get a nice sight picture. I think I'm done with upgrades for awhile, unless I can find a remote under $10...

I found that the stock added stability and I put a red dot on my alpha black that negated the sights.
