Review: After putting a stock on my marker, I realized that there is not enough mask clearance to use the stock sights on the A-5. The ASR-1 sight rail raises your dovetail almost 2 inches higher, so you can mount a sight that you can actually use. When I put a dot sight on this mount and used my low profile loader cap (20-30 rounds) I could be a very effective marksman, often getting "kills" with short 3-rd bursts, because I didn't have to trace my shots to the target or guess where the first shot would go. The problem this sight rail presents is that if you mount a sight on it and want to use the regular A-5 hopper, the hopper blocks the sight, rendering it useless. To solve this problem you will need some sort of offset sight rail (I really like my In Yo Face offset sight mount--only $15), which will actually make using your sight even easier, because you won't need to tilt your head at all to look through it, and the hopper will no longer block your sight.
Conclusion: If you are a "spray and pray" kind of player, this sight rail probably won't be of much use to you (other than for looks), as sights are not your thing. However, if you like to use sights when you play, the ASR-1 sight rail (along with an offset sight rail and an actual sight) is one of the best investments you can make for your marker.
