Review: Alright, Lets pretend you are laying down in some bushes next to a dirt pathway, and you see 5 enemies come waltzing down the path. You have 2 choices, you could run, or you could fight.
You choose the latter.
This is where a Red Dot sight comes in handy, it helps you pick a target and then eliminate them in the least number of shots. A Red Dot Scope, combined with a Flatline or Sniper Barrel, creates a deadly duo.
The Red Dot scope is not for everyone, I know some people who say that the red dot saves their lives (Me included), those guys are mostly Snipers or Wingmen for their other words, someone who really needs to make their shots count. I've also seen people who say it's just a waste of money...which is true if you are a front-liner or point person.

Ultimately the Red Dot is a good addition for anyone who will DEFINITELY have time to use one, otherwise, save your money for all of the paint you'll be waisting without this system.
I know the E-Dot is very expensive (around $120 a pop) but if you go to your local store (Meijer or Wal-mart) and you can buy a Tasco Red Dot scope made specifically for rifles, it'll run you about $35, so you can save your money for's not like you'll need it.
Conclusion: This is an excellent decision for any gun, it helps add a lot of accuracy while hiding your location. I definitely recommend this if you like playing woods ball or Scenario games, this is definitely not for Speedballers or Front-liners in Scenario games, because it will not be used and will be a waste of money.

how did you sight this in on your flatline, cause if your too close its low if your real far then its correct but if your halfway then your shooting high
