Weaknesses: Kinda pricey, small for a carrying handle
Review: I bought this in conjunction with my Full Boar sight rail, so that I could raise my dot sight to a point where I don't have to move my head to bring my sight to target, and still not have my mask interfere with my solid stock. It serves my purpose quite nicely. Almost looks like an assault rifle sight.

It is a bit pricey for such a small raised sight rail. Speaking of small, Pro-team claims you can use it as a carrying handle. You'd have to have small hands, because holding it like that is a bit uncomfortable.
Conclusion: Depends on what you think you need it for. If you have a stock, it would be a good accessory if you like to use the sights or want to add a dot sight to it. However, this will put your hopper in front of your sight (most of it anyways). To counteract this, you'll need to learn to look with both eyes on your target.

Practice this: 1) Focus on an object on your desk. 2) Now, put your right hand over your right eye. Notice how your other eye compensates for the obstructed view and creates the illusion that you are seeing through your hand? Keep practicing this until putting your dot sight in front of you and seeing through the hopper is like a reflex.
