M4A1 and the Laser "myth"

Now with facts
Stat: "+2 accuracy, -2 mobility"
Urban myth: "The M4's laser mod doesn't increase accuracy, but the mobility loss is noticeable"

A rifleman with a completely unmodded M4A1 moves at ~4.755 meters per second
A rifleman with M4A1 + Laser II moves at ~4.667 meters per second

This means the unmodded M4A1 moves ~1.9% faster than Laser II; conversely, the Laser II incurs a mobility penalty of 1.85%.

So now that the mobility loss is a reality, what about the alleged "fake accuracy stat?" The resolution 1366x768 or w/e was used to determine the following:

When standing, both crosshairs were 20x19 around the outer ends of the green lines. The white dot (if you use that crosshair) was 3 pixels away from the center on both guns; this implies a total chance of 1/56 of hitting center pixel, or an accuracy rating of 56 (where lower is better).

When crouching, both crosshairs were 16x15. The white dot was 2 pixels away from the center on both guns; this implies a total chance of 1/30 of hitting center pixel, or an accuracy rating of 30.

When moving with the unmodded M4, the crosshair was min30x29 and max32x31. The white dot was 7 pixels away; this implies a 1/240 chance of hitting center pixel, or an accuracy rating of 240.

When moving with the M4 Laser II, the crosshair was min28x27 and max30x29. The white dot was 6 pixels away; this implies a 1/182 chance of hitting center pixel, or an accuracy rating of 182.

Conclusion: Laser II on M4A1 slightly decreases mobility but increases accuracy by a small amount. It's NOT worth the money. If you want more accuracy on this already-laser M4A1, just use the trigger.
