    A rip clip really won't solve the issue, and it'd be a huge downgrade in loader technology. The main thing is that you can't get your head down as low as you would need to, but honestly, fixed sights on paintball guns aren't really the best way to sight in on your target. I'd recommend getting used to the natural "point" of your gun to help you aim, and after that - it's just practice

    sights on paintball markers are just for looks. and changing from a rotor to a ripclip? natural point of aim is the best way to shoot, because there is no guaranteeing that it will go there.

    I took the sights off my TM-15 when I painted it, then I forgot to put them back on. Never even noticed to be honest. They don't accomplish much.

    You can always leave the sights on, but they just don't accomplish anything.

    I figured out this problem took me a while... the spring was put in backwards from factory and was stuck in the tube with much persistence of tugging on the spring it finaly came out.

    Hmmm ...
    First about sights, I use a Red Dot on my TM-15s and the only way to do that is to use a TM Series RipClip. I use RipClips and have not had any issues. Mil Sim markers are not as easy for me to aim without a red dot, so for me they are a requirement.
    As for the Spring, there is a small end and larger end on their springs. You want to make sure the spring "clicks" onto the bolt when you put it on. It will then also "click" into a notch on the inside of the main body when you reinsert the bolt and bolt guide. This will result in the spring and sometimes the bolt as well staying behind in the marker when it is removed. I will use a swab to push the spring out from the front of the marker when necessary.
    You should post a pic of your new family member! The TM-15 is my favorite Mil Sim marker that I currently own.

    The mini I have been using recently has the same issue with the spring not wanting to come out. I have had to push and pull on it very hard and in the beginning I was scared at how much I had to force it. After numerous annoying battles, it still looks and feels brand new so I wouldn't worry about yours getting stuck. I would double check that it was actually put in backwards because as Papa said, it is supposed to sit in a seat/notch in the marker so it's possible that it was assembled correctly and not backwards.
    Todd: Hey Griswold. Where do you think you're gonna put a tree that big?
    Clark: Bend over and I'll show you.
    Todd: You've got a lot of nerve talking to me like that Griswold.
    Clark: I wasn't talking to you.
