Review: This is the most pathetic excuse for paintball equipment I have ever seen. It is just plain pitiful. The manufacturers definately have not tried this product on any real paintball guns. For one, the blasted thing is counter-sinked on the wrong side. That means the screws won't fit correctly into it, because there is no little slot for the ends of them.

The screws that come with it are Allen screws. Neither of my three metric or English system allen wrench sets can fit it, so I had to use pliers to screw them in. The screws are also too short to go through your gun's drop forward, the product itself, and into the trigger frame. I had to go to my hardware store and purchase two sets of screws (seeing as how it only came with one of the required two sets) and a set of nuts to fit on the second pair of screws.

After about an hour of working on it trying to get it to work, I figured out that even with screws that actually fit, it is impossible for it to work, since it is counter-sinked on the wrong side, so the one set of screws cannot be flush with the part.

All in all, this is a waste of $6, and I do not recommend it for anything. Except maybe a present for an enemy, or a funny looking paper weight.
Conclusion: I DO NOT recommend this product at all. I am giving it a 1/10 because I cannot give it a 0. Please, save yourself a headache and a trip to the hardware store and invest in a decent product.
