spyder shutter with smart parts teardrop barrel and sure shot red dot sight
it is accurate and has 2 light modes, one is brighter, so when it isnt as bright you can use the low power mode to save on batteries, which only cost $3
you can keep both eyes open, the tube is bigger than the picture looks it is big enough to see very clearly through, i wouldn't recommend it if you have a vertical feed hopper cause that kind of defeats the purpose, my shutter has powerfeed, and it easily fits over the top of my powerfeed. it is easy to adjust and works really good if you have an accurate barrel. it doesn't wiggle at all if you tighten it on correctly. i have snipered many people with it, but it is kind of a waste if your more of an assault paintballer, i like to sneak up and snipe people which it is exellend for.
mine has never been hit so i don't know how durable it is , but it seems like it is pretty durrable, it also comes with a warranty -if it breaks they will replace it for $8 for shiping and handling
there really is no difference between the hundred dollar ones and this one except the hundred dollar ones are made out of metal, which doesnt matter anyways. it is an accurate sight, it is better than just a regular sight because you can adjust it to where you paint goes. it is definily worth it if you like to take sniper shots
THIS IS GOOD. It is an extremely good sight after adjusting it and zeroing in. Gret for snipering! you can use it with one eye open, or both eyes open. Not too pricey. Looks cool on any gun. I'd recomend getting a new barrel though.
nothing really, kind of oppy, doesn't work if you dont adjust it and test it over and over, but when your done its great.
I'd recomend this to anyone with an empty sight rail.
Spyder EM1 with Armson Stealth 16in Barrel (also use Bob Long 16in Sniper Barrel) Sure shot sight, VL 12v Revolution hopper
I have had the sight for about a three weeks now, I have used it alot, I love everything about it. The two different brightness settings are great, if you are in a wooded area, with a lot of shade, it is better to use the second setting, if you are playing speed ball, the first setting works great. Also, the further away you hold the sight from your eyes, the larger the dot gets. Mounting was very easy, loosten the screws, and slide it on. What is great too is that you can have both eyes open, and still see the dot on your target (you can do that with most dot sights though). It is very light and durable, and it comes with a battery. I have a Spyder Shutter and I read before I got the sight that you cant use one because of the powerfeed, but the sight is very tall and it towers (not too tall of course, about 2 1/2 inches high) over the powerfeed for excellent visibility, no obstructions what so ever.
The only thing I was worried about was that the battery was only held in a by a metal prong, there was no full battery cover, but nothing went wrong, thankfully the prong was strong and it held the battery in.
I would reccomend this sight to all, it is definitly worth every penny. Also whats great is that ACDO will replace it if it breaks or fails in any way.

Black Model 98 Custom (polished internals and silenced bolt)
20 ounce Atomic Energy CO2 bottle with anti-syphon (and APP Butt plate)
DYE 12" Stainless Steel Barrel
Adco Sure Shot Red Dot Sight
6 stage X-chamber
LAPCO rear velocity adjuster
empire reloader agitated hopper
It is great for woodsball (can keep both eyes open when playing)
The plastic breaks if the site takes a couple of direct hits
a great addition for woods shooting; works great on my 98 custom since it mounts directly onto it. Over long distances it serves as a reference marker; even if I have to arc my gun up. Battery life is very good as well, and its easly adjusted for traverse and elevation (one screwdriver is all you need)
Speedballers won't find it that helpful; everything happens so fast in the speedball setting you don't have time get "in a stance" where you look through the site. In speedball you simply bring your marker up and shoot.
Saves a little paint since you're more accurate with your first shots as opposed to 'walking' them up like tracers.
Good sight, mounts directly on my model 98 custom. If you want your first shots to be more accurate then its a good pick. Can break kind of easily.

Spyder Shutter with 12'' smart parts stainless steel, electric trigger frame, new expansion chamber, nitro
at first i didnt kno wat to expect from this sight. the descriptions werent that clear. this is how it works. you look into the sight and by turning the power on, youll see a red dot appear in the middle of where u are looking through..from thea u can open you other eye and aim with both eyes open. The good thing is the dot doesnt actually come out so u cant be tracked and shot at. Not that expensive and just as good as the e-dot, another ADCO sight.
Lithium battery runs for a long time but when it runs out, another one costs over $30. Nothing else really
This is a good sight for the price, it can take a lot of hits and is better then the square shooter, which is about $70 more. Buy this sight and you wont regret it.
Once you set it up and tweak it, it works very well. You can have both of your eyes open, and still be able to aim accurately. It's different from an old school sight, where you would have to close one eye, and focus entirely on the sight. WIth this one, you are always aware of your sorroundings.
Will work on vertical feeds with beaver sight rails... ( see bad)
You need a good gun setup to use a sight efectively. The freak barrel + nitro really helped.
You need to practice using a sight, so you don't loose time tracking your target. ( main point made by non sight users)
Doesn't work on guns with vertical feed ( at first), perfect for power feed markers. But you will ask, " but the pro ts is a vertical feed gun!!!" I put some metal just below the hole in the beaver sight rail, so the sight would clamp to the gun side ways, not from above.
I really like the fact you can replace the product for 8 dollars, if it was damaged playing paintball.
I also like the ability to make first shot kills when you are up at a medium range, in games like speed ball.
Sights don't PINPOINT the target at large distances, but give you a point of reference which is largely needed as the distance to the target increases. If you have a target as big as a human head, at 20-25 meters, it never misses, especially with a rig like myne, or better. Autocockers, don't worry, that s@$t is way past mine!!!
Regardless of what people think, sights DO WORK... They might not be efficient, but they work. It's up to the player making it efficient or not.
i have a spyder compact 200 black w/ a ARMSON rifled stealth barrel, a ACDO Sure Shot laser sight, CORE 22-Stage Exspansion chamber, and a Universal drop forward shoulder stock. 12 ounce tank.
this sight is great. where the dot is, the ball hits! its just that simple! i love the brightness settings on this sight. they save you batterys. if u dont have to run out and buy a battery it is going to eventually save you money.very cool look to it.
hard to calibrate, a little exspensive for a sight.($40)
get this sight, its great! it looks phat too. get this sight!
Some really bad laser sight for bb guns and stuff like that
98 custom, 20 oz CO2 tank, SureShot Red dot sight, stock barrel :(
Absolutely amazing, the dot is great and the 2 intensity settings keep my battery from going low. Really easy to install on a 98 custom, took about 5 minutes straight out of the box. Also the paintball warrantee is good
not as easy to adjust as some sights, need a phillips head screwdriver
This sight is awsome and is really good for players who do more than "Spray and Pray"
