Review: I have used this sight for over a whole year now and I can say that it is absolutely the best sight I have ever used. I have taken numerous paintballs directly into the sight (I'm talking over 20) and it still works just like the day I bought it. I've dropped it, hit it against trees while running, you cannot hurt this thing. Just wipe the paint out of the spots where the sun comes in and it will work great.

Sighting this in took less than 20 minutes. One knob for Vertical Adjustment, one for Horizontal. You dont even need a screwdriver or any tools to adjust them, just a simple turn. Accuracy is dead on (but then again I guess it would also depend on the gun). I put the dot on my target and know he is going to the Dead Box lol And since you have to have both eyes open to use it, you still have your peripheral vision while shooting (No Tunnel Vision). This has saved my butt quite a few times.

THE GOOD:
-No battery changes ever again. No running out of batteries in the middle of a game.
-As stated, it cannot be harmed lol
-Very Very Small
-Super Easy to Sight In
-You still have your peripherial vision while using it

THE BAD:
-I have used it in a few games towards dusk, while the dots brightness does decrease, it has never gotten bad enough that I cannot use it, unless it is pitch black outside. (Heck if you wanted to, I rigged up a small LED light to a AAA battery and strapped it under my raised rail to power it during the Low Light/Night, works like a dream). Also I cannot find a rail attachment that allows for Dovetail to Weaver attachments so I could use it on a Weaver rail. But I am sure there is one out there. If someone knows of one, please inform me.
-Takes a little bit of getting used to shooting with both eyes open
Conclusion: Buy it. You will never use another sight again. Period. It owns all other sights.

Nice review! as foryour weaver rail comment, the only thing i no of is that armson does make a sight designed specifically for scope rings. If you buy that, then you could mount it on the weaver rail. Of course, you would have to buy a new sight altogether, so its up to you. Check out this sight. It is exactly what you are looking for.
