You must be one of those paintball snipers I've heard so much about!
red dots of any sort on a paintball marker is a waste of money. paintballs are inherently inaccurate. even the best paint available wont shoot ball on ball every shot. plus, in the time that it takes you to line up with your sight and shoot a few balls, i already have 40+ coming your way in a spray pattern and i'm sure to hit you with at least one.
also 18" barrel is going to give you negative results. our barrels arent rifled like gun barrels are. therefore you wont get an increase in accuracy from a longer barrel. instead you get more friction between the ball and the barrel, resulting in a lower velocity and more spin on the ball which will equate to loss of accuracy. 14-16" is more than sufficient.
