Review: STRENGTHS
- It's installed and removed using two thumb screws, which is fast and easy.
- Mounts on weaver and picanny rails.
- Rear sight with adjustable windage and elevation.
- It's Made of steel and aluminum.
- Weaver scope mount, which is only $15 can be monuted on top of the A3 Carry Handle.
- Makes you paintball marker look more like an M4 or M16.
- Carry handle
- With the weaver scope mount ($15) if you mount a red dot sight or scope, it will be raised and you will be able to see it even with a mask on.

WEAKNESSES
- Wont fit on the A-5 (It fits perfectly on the 98) without some kind of raised mount, like the one in the picture.
- Its a pain in the butt to clean. Paint gets stuck in all the small spaces.
- If you are low on cash, $70 might be a lot of money to you, but the A3 is worth it.

PACKAGING AND INSTRUCTIONS
The A3 Carry Handle comes in a small plastic bag with a piece of carboard stapled to the top to close the opening. No instructions come with the A3 Carry Handle but it is very simple to install and easy to figure out how to adjust the windage and elevation (which you will probably never or rarely use).
Conclusion: This is a great, usefull, quality accessory for anyone who is looking for the M4/M16 look.
