Review: I have only used this with my 16" barrel, but the results were staggering none the less.

I would not recomend this unless you have some sort of joy for taking people out from a distance.
It took me about 5 minutes to get it calibrated, one turn of the elevation dial, after that I could hit something the size of a baseball or smaller onthe first shot up to about 50 feet, give or take. After that depending on how far you are away you can normally hit what you want on the second round fired. The first round will be maybe 2" off and all you have to do is ajust depending on drop and wind and dead on accurate again. Makes shooting through thick bushes very easy because you can just put the dot between 2 sticks and you will make it through every time (or maybe 2 shots later). Makes any gun more accurate garunteed. Get this Sight.

http://www.sportsmansguide.com/ You can get this sight for a 3/8" dovetail mount for WAY below retail.

Strengths:

Not too heavy
11 different intensity settings
Very Accurate
Looks good
Does not throw ballance of your gun off
Very easy to calibrate
Can be cheep if you go to the right place (see review)

Weaknesses:

Lense caps can be loose (can fix with a little tape on the inside of cap)
nothing elce
Conclusion: Get the 3/8" version and you will not regret it.
Also dont bother if you have a vertical feed. (You would get a great view of your feed tube.
Rating:
10 out of 10

How did you mount this sight with it not being blocked by the hopper and elbow

How is that 21" barrel working out for you? Any noticable accuracy difference from the 16"

i have a tippman 98c, and if i installed this scope would I get a clear view or would it be blocked by the elbow/hopper. I just have a regular hopper no fancy stuff

I was faced by the same delema Art, I got a 3 inch jcs offset sight rail at special ops paintball. it took care of the problem of having a vertical feed. it shifts the rail about an inch and a half to the left or right (if your left handed). it only cost about 15 bucks. it really works great, I love this sight.
