Spyder Xtra, teardrop barrel Ventri bolt, and a homemade camo cover for the woods
lets you line up for a shot, thats about all
pretty much useless except for general aiming
This thing is fairly useless for doing any of the fancy long distanc shots, but it can help because lining up the shot can be so much easier. I play woodsball almost all the time and my "home field" is filled with thick brush. I have this stuck on my old Syder Sonix (The original quality gun) and with a bit of practice i can use it to place shots through the brush. From distances, just get use the down the barrel method, its easier
Useful for placing through holes in the woods forma decent distance, but not useful for much else, but still useful, and for 8 bucks you can't complain

Black Dragun LED java 12volt hopper crossfire n2 tank 16" sniper barrel. (Getting Evil Omen
cheap looks cool easy installation
only fits some guns, cant see laser in sunlight, not magnification at all
This product is cheap and looks cool but does not fit vertical feed guns. In the sunlight u cant really see the laser sight at all. It is pretty much useless in regular day time play unless its shadowy. Maybe if it magnified a little it would ahve a use in daytime play or a stronger laser or a laser pointer.
I feel that this sight is for rookie player or just want to find a cheap way to make their gun look cooler.
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)
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!
Brass Eagle fiber optic sight (didn't work for me when I had it on my Talon), and I can't compare it to this one because I gave it to my cousin before I owned my Illustrator
Black F4 Illustrator with iMP red-dot sight, VL-200 w/ adjustable elbow, powered by a 9 Oz chrome-moly (cost-effective, I'm not a wimp at 150 lbs).
First, I love the way it looks, something about it makes it look intimidating. Second, it is very easy to mount and adjust, almost too easy... Even though I ran out of paintballs before I could calibrate it, the un-calibrated shots were still very good (before you say anything, I do know how to calibrate it, I only had 5 paintballs to do it with). Oh yeah, it also comes with a battery, big plus for a poor *** mo-fo such as myself. It is also made of polymer, also good for keeping the cost down.
These are just little things, except for the stripped screw, which isn't all that big of a deal. The second time I mounted it, the rear screw partially stripped, but it is my fault because I put too much pressure on it, but it is still pretty firm on the sight rail (it has enough tension that it won't move by itself, but can easily be removed to acsess my F4's field strip). Second, the battery is exposed, and as the paint is water soluable, it could short if a paintball hit it. Third, the LED is exposed, so a direct hit could destroy it, even though the only way to hit it would be from the side. And it is very easy to forget it's on, I'm luckey that I took a head long glance at it before I put it away.
I think that ADCO will always have a market in paintball, their sights are great, and they're not that expensive, either. Well back to the conclusion...Overall, the good outways the bad, and even then, the bad is so insignificant. The only thing that had me slightly worried was that I spent close to half an hour looking for a screw that could fit in the tap, when I never even NEEDED one, the partially stripped one still had a good amount of staying power. I love it, and since I have no experiance with other sights, except for "iron sights," I have no choice but to give it a good rating. I'm always going to stick with ADCO, and I think I might even splurge and buy an E-Dot.
