Review: First off, if you're going to buy a sight, make sure that you have a good barrel.

Strengths -


Fits securely to the 98 - This is pretty self explanatory. Once you tighten the screws on the sight, that thing isn't moving.

Very simple to use - It's pretty straightforward, screw the thing on, and once you go zero it in all that you have to do is flip the switch and you're good to go.

Cheap - I got this sight for $32 at specialopspaintball.com. I think $32 is a good trade for the increase in accuracy that you get with this sight.

Accuracy - After zeroing in this sight, I can hit trees that are about 3 inches in diameter from 20-30 feet away on my 2nd or 3rd shot.


Weaknesses

Difficult to clean - I always clean all of my equipment after I go paintballing and this sight seems to have alot of little crevices that dirt can get into, and the lenses can be a little difficult to clean around the edges. For the lenses, I use a couple Q-tips to clean the smudges of paint from them.

Can be annoying to adjust - To adjust this sight, you need a screwdriver. I went into a game and my sight was off by about 3 feet to the left and I don't carry a screwdriver around with me in a game so I couldn't adjust it. It can just be a little annoying to adjust sometimes.



EDIT: 6-19-07

I recently took this with me to Oklahoma D-Day, a week long scenario event. At this event, I got shot in the gun several times. That paint got on my sight and my battery. I believe that, because of my battery being covered in paint, my red dot was very faint. I would suggest covering the battery with something to keep paint and other junk out of it. Other than that, I have found that I use my red dot almost every time that I shoot.
Conclusion: I would definitely recommend this sight to anyone with an accurate gun that is looking for just a little boost in accuracy.
