My question would be; why would you need a scope for NERF anyway? The ranges don't necessitate a magnified scope, and with eye relief issues (your eye needs to consistently be a set distance from the eyepiece or you'll just see blur; the guys who do have scopes on their firearms know what I mean) and the amount of running and movement during a NERF war, a scope would seem to only become a hinderance. Or "bling-bling".
On my stock class paintball gun I have a Tasco red dot sight; keep both eyes open, put the red dot on target, and wham! But for NERF, I prefer a simple "ghost ring" peep sight.
Why not just cut a section of 1/2" PVC, 1/4" long, and glue that on your blaster for a quick peep sight...put your target in the ring and shoot! Forget the loser crap. Run and gun!

I'm working on a project that might end up being accurate enough to make use of a scope. We'll see.

Something I've found that I really like is fiber optic sights. They work just like a normal site on a rifle but they come in neon colors making them a lot easier to use when on the move. You can buy ones that go on bows and mount them on your gun. That might be what you need Langley.
One fiber optic, let's say it's a red one. Then you have two fiber optics in the back, let's say green. The way this works is you line up the three optics with each other so you know your shot is lined up. This won't help you any. At least with like a red dot scope, you have a zoom and a dot to aim at a target.

Let's say you had a gun with an EFFECTIVE (not maximum) range of 80 ft, consistently accurate to within a four square inch area-- no one owns such a weapon, but let's just pretend one exists. Now, you toss a scope on that sucker to help you aim, let's say just a little 4x20 Tasco or some such. So now you have a weapon that has immense range and accuracy with an aiming system that helps you to hit a stationary target on the dime.
But, therein lie the problems. Effective use of a scope requires that the gunman be stationary. Ever try aiming down a 4x20 while on the run? You can barely see let alone aim accurately. Next, if your target is moving, you need to learn to lead him. Given the very low velocity of the projectile foam, and the tiny momentum providing easy misdirection from wind, it becomes nigh impossible to determine the proper leading distance at that range while peering down those optics.
Now let's take that same gun and remove the idea of a scope. We assumed an accuracy of 4 square inches; even the slim side profile of your average thirteen year-old has about a 6 inch width and a 50 inch height. That's a lot of allowance for quirks of aiming. If you fire at him head on, suddenly you've got a few square feet of target area. Even firing from the hip, on the run, a good Nerfer should be able to hit this target with our phantom weapon, if at all within range.
Conclusion: a scope would do nothing but slow the user down and open up vulnerabilities for your opponents to exploit.

I'm not recomending that everyone go out and buy a bunch of scopes and slap them on all their guns, but a scope (when used correctly) can be a bunch of help.
Not trying to land on anyone, just voicing an opinion, etc.
