  2. Kinda like buying a fake Rolex or driving a Lamborghini Countach built on a stretched 1988 Pontiac Fiero chassis.

    If the Chines Eotech copies are no better than their copies of name brand clothes, shoes, and toys, it is a risk.

    I'd get an NCstar or $100 tasco tactical scope before i bought a knock off EOTech or better yet keep iron sights and just save for an eotech. Put it this way, if you have the slightest thought that you may one day need to rifle for protection or hunting would you really trust a knock off scope with your life or trust it to humanely put down an animal?

    Protection & hunting......no, but to put it (knock off) on my Ruger 22/45 MKIII and take out beer or coke cans....YES.:2cents:

    This.

    I was looking at an Aimpoint/LaRue combo, but after seeing some of the NCstar glass at the past couple shows, I might end up with one of those in the interim.

    You get what you pay for.

    I personally don't think the EOTech is really that cost prohibitive. I'd rather save up for the real deal and know it's going to work and be supported by the company if it fails.

    Any thing that costs more than 15-20 bucks is cost prohibitive that is an individual specific argument. I would not however buy a knock off If I were going to hunt/fight with the gun.:2cents:

    Spend the money on ammo instead. I wouldn't put any of that knock off trash on a real gun. Maybe an airsoft gun, maybe. ;) lol
