phantom ghost ring sight

just getting into pump and bought myself a phantom. i was thinking of adding a ghost ring but was wondering... do they actually help in aiming? i played once so far with my phantom, and with playing semi for so long, ive gotten so used to aiming by shooting and seeing where things fall. obviously, that didnt work too well playing pump. so i was wondering if you can legitimately aim with the ghost ring.

Well I just attached a reflex sight to my VSC Phantom and sighted it in. Its hitting point of aim at 50'. I'm mainly using it to get a quicker accurate snap shots. I don't know if I'll keep it there after I learn the "index" (Muscle memory of where the gun hits) or not.
Sights work but your barrel & paint have to be accurate enough for it to work. If you are going to use crap paint don't bother. I run the best paint I can get a hold of with a freak bored stock barrel.

IMO, the ghost ring just wastes time. It's faster to just aim down the side of the gun.

Yeah, the ghost ring can work if you practice with it. But personally I just found it easier to sight down the side of the gun. After a while it became second nature to know where the ball was going to go.

yea, ill try getting used to doing it that way. its been hard at first. i think ill need to get a stock or something for my phantom... it was easier sighting my regular guns because shouldering the tank and everything sorta placed everything properly for me. with my vsc phantom... its all sorta "floating" around without anything to shoulder.

Exactly why you can't hit anything, stocks are pretty much necessary

It's all down to preference, buy one and try it out or make one yourself, if your cheap.

Don't waste your money. You will eventually get used to aiming down the sites.
