What was wrong with the Chinese clone, besides it not being Made in America?

Let me count the issues..

Locktite was necessary to keep it tight on the rail.

The hinge pins in the lens caps would slow out due to recoil ( and a 5.56 doesn't recoil much)

And zero would "walk" often.

Would be awesome for airsoft if I played that..

Nope. I've got a few friends that run 'em on their weapons in Afghanistan too.


I love my EO-Tech though, it's an awesome tool. The only downside is I keep closing my other eye out of habit.

I also have friends and relatives that use them on a daily basses and have nothing but good things to say. I'm am sooty to say that have have one break. With little to none use before it happened I was sighting it on a AR. The elevation adjustment screw broke in half and was a loose peace between the glass. I am really surprised with the reputation of eotechs durability.
Here's the pease and where should go crossways behind the chip.

I love my optics.

It always takes a box or six of ammo to zero them,

once they're mounted...
