Review: I had the Specops Flattop Rail before getting my M4 Raised rail System. The Pro's en con's in a nutshell:

Low Profile: as you can see from the pic's, this rail is pretty small. It would be virtually impossible to be able to get hit on it. It won't raise your RedDot/Scope too much either, so this is a pretty important point

Strength: this is one of the most rigid pieces of paintball equipment I have ever laid my hands on. It is pure metal, you will never be able to break this one!

Good Fit: after installation, by screwing the set screws in pretty good, this thing sits rock solid.

Perfect quality finish: the rail looks just perfect, the finish is pretty close to perfection. I'll post some pics of my rail next week, they'll say it all

Tricky Installation: as the installation guide already said, the installation may vary from A5 to A5, but mine required the front sight and the cyclone to be put off. Not a big deal, but required just a little more time.

Set Screws: i've personally never been a fan of set screws, although they make the rail stay put at all times. I've used the rail for some months, and already now I can see the print of the screws in the marker's finish. To me this is the biggest problem, but probably also the trickiest to solve
Conclusion: Good rail, just a pity about the set screws but overall near to perfection.
