  • Great product

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    -Solid build
    -Universal to mount on all 3/8 dovetails
    -Good for mounting a red dot sight or basically anything that requires a weaver rail onto it.
    -Great for paintball, airsoft and pellet guns.
    -High rises the optics a little bit, which is very good because when using a paintball gun that has a stock on it, you can't aim down the sight unless the optics are elevated because your mask gets in the way of the stock.
    -Decent look
    -Easy to install/remove
    -Sturdy hold on the dovetail
    -Comes with two good allen keys

    Cons:

    -Weaver grooves don't expand entire length which means you'd better be mounting optics that has one one ajustable screw to fit specific length.
    -Short but still unlikely to fit two of these on the same rail.
    Doesn't quite raise a red dot sight high enough.
    -Not recommended for actual firearms.

    OtherThoughts:

    The best thing I can think of for use of these things is to put them on paintball guns, specifically the Tippmann 98 custom (not Platinum series) and the Tippmann A5, both of which are standardized with a 3/8 instead of a picatinny.

    Bottomline:

    An interesting product, good for various uses, you'll figure it out pretty fast.
