Turn off the double tap mode.

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?

Simmons Crossbow Red Dot Scope 30mm Sight 851133 FREE S&H 851133, 851133. Simmons Red Dot Sights.

I was being sarcastic.

Default 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.
