Default Any good ACOG clones?

Looking for a quality ACOG, don't want or have $800 to $1200 for Trijcon, has anybody had a good luck with a clone ACOG?

nope.

what makes an acog desirable is its day/night illumination sans batteries, rugged durability, crystal clear glass.

your not going to find any of that in a cheap knock off.

Looking at a Scepter CQB X3 1x-4x Adjustable Quick Detach Dual Role Scope, what do you think?

You might look at the Trijicon dual power reflex at about 1/2 the Acog.

the only clone i might consider would be the Vortex Sparc. It's not really a clone but an overrun of old models sold by vendors overseas w/o the Vortex logo.

This is a fairly new red dot that has had some good reviews. It is not an ACOG but it is cheap. Primary also has some new scopes that are interestng.

The Vortex Strike Fire II is highly regarded but again it is not an ACOG.
Personally I am leaning toward 1-4x24 or 1-6x24 illuminated scopes. There are several decent ones out there in the $200-$300 range. Good ones are $500 plus.

I purchased a Primary Arms 2.5x scope with a great etch glassing, I'm very happy and it only took 3 shoots to zero in at 50 yards, A+.
