PMI Piranha STS G3 Titaniam, 12 OZ CO2, JT Proteus Mask -(woods camo goggle skins), Dye Excel Barrel, Gas-thru stock w/ remote, 6+1 harness, ADCO Imp Sight, Home-Made Strap, Core 22 stage expansion chamber (yes it is 22 stage!) -Feel free to ask me any questions about my other equipment.
1. A Good sight that helps accurace and makes it possible to see over powerfeed on all powerfeed guns.
3. Good looking
5. Easilly adustable - a little crank in front and back
6. Easy to aquire targets... you wont be lining up for 10 minutes, point and shoot.
7. Easy to install, i had it on in like 5 seconds
1. well for me i do alot of stuff to my gun and i'm afraid i'm gonna drop my gun and break it.
2.somone with a trained eye (or a lucky guy) on a woods scenario might be able to see the red dot projected onto the screen.
if you have a powerfeed gun and cant stand not being able to aim down the top of the gun, THIS IS GREAT. it's only like 20 bucks (less than alot of sights) and makes a great addition to any gun - I DEFINATELY recoment this to ALL players with powerfeeds that block their sight rails, hel!, if u have money buy some for your friends... and send me a few.
NOTE: while it doesn't zoom in at all, you definately dont need any zoom in paintball (so if ur looking into getting a zooming SCOPE, just get a sight, even if u r a sniper... if u cant see the guy without a scope, ur gun can't shoot far enough to get him.)
Spyder Compact Deluxe Java Edition, Adco Imp Red Dot Sight
It is a great sight for the price, it's accurate, the batteries are cheap, and best of all, the sight is cheap!!!
As other reviewer's said, it is very easy to leave the sight on, and drain the battery.
Over all, this is a great sight. For the $18 ( I got one for $15) it is well worth it. For one, it has improved my game a great deal. Also, it saves me money. How you may ask, before I got the sight, I would be trigger happy, using a wastefull tactic called spray & pray. This is when you fire a swarm of paint, and hope you connect with your target. Now, I take aim with the sight, and use less paint in wars, which saves me money. So pay the measily 15 bucks and buy the darn sight!
Easy to install
Easy to adjust
Battery is exposed
I bought this sight for about $15. It was very easy to install, it mounted right on my Flatline's shroud. It's very easy to adjust, just two screws to adjust height and center. It looks great on my gun, it definitely fits in with the look my gun has.
It's decently accurate. Paintball guns by nature are not accurate guns, but this sight is pretty close. I'd say that 7 or 8 out of 10 shots will hit within an inch of the dot at 50 feet. at 100 feet, it goes to about 6 or 7 shots. 150 feet, it goes down to 5 shots out of 10. at 200 feet, 3 or 4 shots will hit within an inch. That is great for a paintball gun.
There are two problems with this sight. One, it seems very delicate. I'm afraid I'm gonna break it sooner or later if I handle the gun too roughly. Two, the battery is exposed. I'm a little worried if I take a direct hit on the sight and the battery gets hit. Other than these two problems, this is a good sight. It's hard to beat it's performance for the price.
One of the cheapest sights available, performs very well. Just don't treat it roughly.
One of my favorite things about this is that it looks cool as hell. It's really cheap, so its something you can buy and not really worry about it being all that important, which its not really. You only get a few times to use it in a game, and in speedball its not even going to get turned on. Its fun for target practice and stuff tho.
Not really it's fault, but since paintballs drop a lot it's hard to be really accurate on far away shots (which is the only time you would use this). It's good to help with aiming left/right, but up and down can really only be set for 1 distance since the balls drop.
Its great for the money. Only slightly useful, but it's very fun. It also makes your gun look cool. I say get it.

kinda reminds me of the croshairs on your screen in first person shooter computer games
(stock) PMI Piranha STS g3 -pf
16 oz C02 on a remote coil - Nitro is no different on this gun
*once you calibrate it, it is a nice alternative to aiming down your barrel
*easily adjustable, but you may want to spend some time on the shooting range testing what adjustments are good for what ranges. you will only ned to mess with the vertical adjuster once the dot is aligned with your barrel
*easily mounted and will not fall off
*It can take a hit NO PROBLEM. it got shot on the side from about 20 feet away in a tight speed ball game - cleaning it with water wasnt a problem either
*damn inexpensive - i went to buy something else at a local store and this sight was so damn cheap i just bought it with my spare pocket change
*works on any gun with a standard sightrail
*Pain in my ass to adjust the horizontal positioning. the adjuster didn't go far enough so i just mounted it uneven to compensate - figured this out after my first game with it.
*only useful for sniping or those important shots where you have time to aim - ill only use it for 50%% of my shots as it takes a few seconds to find the dot and line it up
an all around great adition to my gun (once i got it to point in the general direction of my barrel.) This will take some tweaking for each gun but for less than $20 it is definatly worth it. Some will appreciate that it is a decent sight that will work with any gun it fits on (duct tape should work by the way)

takes a hit well
A little non versatile (trickey to mount on some guns)
This is a very nice optic. Its nice enough you actually consider using it, but its cheap enough you don't freak out about its safety. It does feel it could not take a hit if you dropped your gun suddenly but I dont't think I have ever done that. This sight is great for woodsball. If you are very aggresive I would not reccomend it, due to the fact you would not need that much precision. If you like to stay back and snipe, it would be a great addition to your marker.
This is a very good sight for the tippmann 98 or any other gun with 3/8 rails. the sight is easily zeroed into where your ball will go, i finished setting mine in less than 5 minutes (no screwdriver required). the red dot is very bright, but the screen is pretty small so i wouldn't recommend looking out it for a long period of time, only when you spot an enemy. installation was easy and quick
This red dot is a very good buy for only 15-18 bucks
Easy to attach
Easy to remove
Easy to adjust
Long Range shots need adjusting
At this point, I am a newbie to paintball. My aim is off, my skills are low and everything else that comes with being a beginner. However, with this on my gun I feel alot better...
A sight may not be that key, but I've found that you can adjust it to be DEAD-ON. For instance, my friend has a woodball field set up. In it, is a well built fort. With this sight, I'm able to shoot into the tiniest hole in that fort. Not bad for a beginner, huh?
The bad is only this. Obviously, long range shots are sometimes going to sink or curve or something. The red dot may not work super well at far-off distances, so it would be wise to adjust the left/right and up/down as your opponents are further away.
I reccomend this product to anyone who wants a cool laser-dot scope for a great price. Saying this is worth every penny is an insult, this is worth more than every penny. Anyway, this is a must have for beginners, or even advanced players without alot of cash.
