I have a red dot and was thinking about trying it as a ocular sight. Can I not just leave the cap on the front and use it as such? It seems t to me that that would take care of any glare issues. AS for the kit it looks cool but I prefer function over form. If it doesn't make it work better I'll pass. As I think most of this crowd has mentioned. I gie them props for trying somethign new for them.

I used my red dot on my tac one forvthe first time this weekend.
I had set it up at home, according to the guide, and with my palmers brass barrel, it's accurate as hell. More than I had expected.
Do I use it for every shot?
But when wanting to get a one shot, one hit surprise, it works wonders.
Last weekend, had a guy behind a bunker, who's leg was just sticking out a bit.
Sighted it in, and he was out with one shot.

Blackrain, completely agree with you. More options are better than less. If it isn't your cup of tea, maybe it will be for someone else.

Sights are worthless to me regardless. Anyone who has ever seen me play can tell you that
More options are better, it's what helps me make my decision on where I spend my future dollars

It looks like the EMC kit in the poster was the initial concept prototype. The current incarnation of the EMC kit has some changes from the promotional poster shown. There are now 2 45 degree positioned rails located on the back end of the gun to better mount sights for proper sight line use.
I agree with Blackrain that it is nice for companies to offer conversion kits for guns that can help a player transform his gun to play both woods ball and speedball. I play both and prefer the minimalist approach to my gun so I don't typically add things to my guns. As anyone who had been around this sport for any decent length of time knows that appearance of the gear makes the biggest impression on the newer players, No matter if the attachments work or not.
One of the cool things I noticed about the EMC kit was the fact that almost all the internal parts of the gun can be accessed without removing the attachments of the body kit. The bolt, the eyes, etc can all be cleaned or worked on the the kit still mounted. Plus this thing is very light. Can't do much with the weight of the attachments, but the kit itself is very light.

The fact is, the etha shoots better than the majority of 'woodsball' markers, and is alot lighter. Use the kit, with a stock and remote, and it'll be a featherwieght.
And has everyone forgotten about the qloader. A riser would allow a rear mounted red dot (or other preferred sight) to clear the feed tube easily. Now if only valken would release the strikeloader...
