Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Here is a sweet illuminated dot sight for a wide variety of marker setups. The main frame and mounts are made of aluminum for strength and durability. The aluminum mount reverses to fit either a 3/8", 7/8" or picatinny rail, with thumbscrews for ease of installation. The 25mm lens allows this sight to clear most loaders.

The sight is fully adjustable for windage and elevation. The aiming dot can be set to red or green and three degrees of brightness. Easily one of the best values in sights out there!

Covered by a limited lifetime warranty from manufacturer.

NcStar Sight
Strengths: Built vary well (aluminum) I was impressed once it was installed very sturdy
Weaknesses: None yet unknown what head on hit will do
Review: I picked mine up for seventeen dollars + shipping great deal low profile easy target acquisition would probably be more stable if you have a stock but then you may need to raise the sight. All anodized Aluminum body Heads up halo type display integrated Weaver Style & 3/8" Dovetail not plastic like some sights of similar price comes with an extra battery and sight adjusting alien wrench
Conclusion: Look around for the best deal this sight is well worth it. This sight is made for conventional firearms so it can handle the abuse of a woodsballer no problem

Review: What a great buy!

$24.99 from paintballonline.com

Nice fully aluminum red OR green dot sight. 3 brightness levels. Adjustable windage and elevation.

Looks sweet. Doesn't block vision if you need to sight down the rail at a moment's notice.

Takes a standard CR2032 battery.

Adds great looks and works well as a sight for a very low price.
Conclusion: I would definately recommend this sight to someone who wants a quality sight for a very very good price!

Haven't used anything similar to this.
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 Custom with Apex Barrel/20 oz. Co2 canister/Stock Viewloader hopper/NcStar Red/Green Dot sight.
Strengths: Easy to mount.
Red/Green Dot settings.
Brightness settings.
Looks nice.
Weaknesses: Very elevated on a stock 98 Custom.
Almost impossible to see in the sunlight.
Review: Looking for affordable decent sights aren't easy on actual paintball websites, so I went to Ebay and picked this one up. I mounted it at home and was surprised how easy it was to install. The dots were very vibrant in my room with the lights on and I thought this would be the perfect sight for me, unfortunately the next day I walked outside to see how it would fare in the sunlight and I was extremely disappointed to find that the dot (green or red) could hardly be seen at all. I'm going to have to return this $23 dollar sight and find a new one for woodsball.
Conclusion: For all you woodsballers, this sight is not for you, it would be fantastic if it was actually housed inside of a cylinder or scope body, but it's not. For speedballers who can find an inside course, this is probably a better sight for you. I give this product a 6 out of 10. -4 for not being a good sight for woodsball.

Strengths: Extremely rugged. I have taken several direct hits to the scope and its fine.
Weaknesses: Green dot is impossible to see Red dot isn't much better.
Review: I was excited about this scope when I got it. Put it on my gun and it was amazing in my living room. I couldn't wait to get it outside and try it. Finally got to play with it, and it works pretty good on cloudy days and at night. But on a bright Texas summer day, you are S.O.L. You can spot stuff with the red dot on the highest setting. But it doesn't pop out at you like I had expected. Maybe I played to much Call of Duty and had to high of expectations. But I don't think so. I have taken a few hits in the front of the scope and with the exception of the bolts coming loose after awhile I have had no adverse affects.
Conclusion: Its a cool concept. But I would go with an actual scope if I were to do it over again.
