Default Red dot,holographic without batteries

Are there any red dot sights that don't require batteries?

I can't remember ware I saw it. It's not technically a red dot. I guess it would be like a scope with 1 red center dot. I just wonted to know if they made one like a eotech style instead of a scope.

Trijicon ACOG is probably what you are thinking of. Rather popular in the
sandbox.

Closest to an EOtech style with no batteries that I'm aware of is the
Trijicon RMR Dual Illuminated.

Trijicon uses tritium with a 12.3 year half-life. Getting the tritium changed out by Trijicon costs about $300.

Get an Aimpoint with a 50,000 hour battery life (that's running time, switched on. About 5 years.). Change your batteries every couple of years and it still wouldn't cost as much as the Trijicon and you wouldn't have to worry about them burning out.
