I just bought that for my pistol phantom. Man that thing is tiny! It would actually work really well on the original posters PGP setup. Much lighter and smaller. Sadly no dovetail rail sights of this size. I looked for months everywhere. The compact size is nice but I don't know how long you will get from batteries.

I think it's useful when you have a reaction to something (or "preference" as people around here call it), *why* you have that reaction. I'm curious if you remember where the actual discomfort was.
I've made no claims as to having better accuracy than paint ballistics will allow. I can claim to having my gun pointed in the right direction, quickly and accurately, without a sight.
If you securely set a gun down on a table and remotely fire it a bunch of times and watch where the paint lands, do you need to go back and sight down the barrel to predict where the next one goes? No. You can visually confirm that the gun didn't move. That the target didn't move, and the table you set it on didn't move. All relatives in a frame of reference.
I started out sighting down the barrel on my guns because that's the natural thing to do. But eventually you start learning that if the barrel/gun is in this particular position in your FOV, then the paint takes a particular trajectory without literally looking down the barrel.
It becomes symbolic, pattern recognition.
When you read this post, did you read every letter and sound out each one until a word formed? Or with enough practice, do you know what the word is by looking at it without sounding each letter out?

I have used the original Dye Izon on my Angel for quite a while and it works decently, since paintballs don't act like bullets it's not pinpoint accurate but it will help. I haven't played with the new fin-stablized paintballs yet but I hope so soon.
Here's a picture of my Angel with integrated sight rail that the Izon mounts to.

"Uncomfortable" as in bending my neck down and fitting my goggles in behind the sight with a rear bottle setup. Especially with low, body cut sight rails like on an alley cat. I had to go looking for the sight.
However, with my pump/pistol setup, the marker goes in front of me naturally, whether I am looking for the sight or not. I may change my pump grip as my stance changes, but I can keep the marker in front of me. After a few shots, the sight is usually on line, and then I can figure out why my first shots didn't pan out. It keeps me from hitting the same twig three times in a row. If I get the time, I'll check the sight in the first place and go around the twigs.
Having the right riser and marker setup to make it convenient goes a long way to making a sight useful.
Another use for a sight (if I haven't put it in here already), is shooting off handed (left/right), especially in a pump shootout. You line up your grip first before you pop out. I can aim and shoot with my left hand, but it is not too hot on the snapshot, especially with my right hand pumping in between.

Just picked up another Armson sight (that makes three I own) and I love the new design they are manufacturing now. The clamp is more toward the front of the sight, instead of being centered as they once were. This makes it easier to fit in tight spaces.
Here is a picture of my three 'Mags and my Sniper II. All three Armson's are pictured. Note the Armson on the Micromag...it is the new design that I refer to above.
