The Photos, taken with my HTC Desire HD (not bad Image quality I thought).
The Stampede, to the keen few, you'll notice a 9KG spring, a 4xAA Battery Sled and my Flashlight attachment, using Duct tape, later this week I'll properly fasten the flashlight to the Recon Flip-up sight base using a clamp. Just waiting on my 14500 unprotected Li-on's to come in from DX to mod the insides according to SGNerf's guide.

it's hard to make out the Reflex sight, just look a little closer
|Flashlight & Reflex Sight||Reflex Sight mounted, close-up|
One issue with the Reflex sight is mounting it, whilst in the photos it looks to mount nicely, unfortunately the rail mount is a little too wide and as such, is a little loose, however this is better than finding it's too small to fit the rail forcing me to file/cut the rail apart, at this stage I think I might try and put a little glue under the rail and let it set, to "fatten" the rail, I would rather not glue the sight to the rail because I would like the sight to be removable for storage and transport. Ideas on what else I could do?
Other than this small issue, the sight works great, even in the bright sunshine, it's a very sunny and fine day in Sydney today and I took it out *almost* aimed at the sun and I could see the red dot clearly, contrary to the reviews on DX. For ~$30 plus ~$20 shipping if you want it in a couple of days, I highly recommend this sight for Nerf weapons, just as long as you have a bit more ingenuity than I do and can figure out a way to snugly mount the sight so it won't fall off in the heat of battle.
