Spyder Electra 09 questions

hello, I have two questions about the spyder electra 09 marker which I am considering to buy; I have been browsing the web and read that a few people think it quite inaacurate, can anybody share their thoughts please about that matter? And I was wondering is there any possibility to put a red dot or holographic sight on the electra? I just have a feeling that just aiming along side the barrel isnt very accurate, so a red dot or even iron sights will possibly improve aiming but i cant see any electras with rails on it, so is it even possible to mount/add stuff to the electra?
Thanks in advance guys

ok thanks, the accuracy rumor was just something that i read in another forum. Ok so no scopes then, hmm is there anything that can be customised about the electra besides the hopper and gas tank and the barrel?

If you are into changing up a guns appearence check out the tippmanns. But if you are going to play speeball well really barrels, hoppers, and tanks and sometimes boards are the only thing to upgrade.

any tippmann is worse is almost every way shape and form imaginable compared to a electra. they are more expensive, harder to work on, larger and heavier

for the electra, dont upgrade anything on the marker itself beyond a barrel. Accuracy is determined by the barrel and paint only, all the marker does is put air behind the ball, it wont change accuracy. red dots and sights for the vast majority of the sport are useless, they dont do anything besides dress up a marker. paintballs are not the most accurate things in the world and even at max range you can still see what you are shooting at

even milsim, it shoots paint, go play. you may not be able to play some of the rolls like "sniper" because you dont have a $100 POS scope on it but so what, let the people who like to dress up their marker play those rolls, just have fun and shoot paint
