yeah i think thats not normal
unless there's some new type of red dot out there or something
send it back :cool:

Yep, probably not a keeper. Although I have noticed some cheap red dots will work great in daylight, but get fuzzy or show multiple dots when looking thru them while in a dark room.

Unless you might have picked up something like this by mistake?

The tasco intructions say nothing about the double tap mode! i noticed the first time i turned it on there was only one dot. later i mounted on the rifle an now it has 2 dots??WTF?? it is new out of the package. is there a double tap switch that is not mentioned in directions or diagram??

2 dots on UTG red/green dot scope
 
I saw to two dots as you describe and took out the battery and put it back in and now have one dot. Give that a try.

this is an old post.I had mounted the red dot site backwards on the gun. I turned it around and it only had one dot!!
