Can i legally possess a former military eotech red dot?
Was it legally obtained military surplus?
I haven't purchased it yet. Its an individual selling it back from a deployment
That sounds suspicious.
if he legally obtained it, i don't see why not. but if it's not, then it's stolen government property. which i wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole!
A lot of guys were given promo stuff. All these top brands like eotech, surefire, magpul actually gave away their stuff as a way to give their product the ultimate torture test. It also helps them get their name out and they can claim the combat proven theme. To top it off what other way to have an ever glowing halo as to give to the military. So keep in mind what your buying is legal for you to own, that person more then likely got for free. Hope this helps
I have heard of people taking elcans off of bmgs and selling them, also all the asvp plate carriers any of us can find on craigslist...those weren't a parting gift to former soldiers
If it's marked property of the united states military or something to that effect it's stolen.
The military has not surpluses electronic optics.
It's almost certainly stolen.
You don't state if the seller is someone you know or if this is based on a craigslist or ebay ad.
If it is based on an ad there is another possibility ... it is a cheap Chinese knock-off with a quick olive drab or desert camo paint job and a scammer is trying to pass it off as surplus.
It's owned by the tax payer, military is just borrowing it
It's real military hardware i've handled it in person.
If the military member was issued this, stay away. That piece of hardware belongs to the military and not the service member. Tread lightly!
feel free to go to any military base and repossess the tax payers property.
please let us know how it works out for you!
I have on occasion had the opportunity to acquire recent military (ahem) items. Turned it down. I mean I appreciate out troops and all, and i don't suppose they have been properly compensated for their service, but no. I probably wouldn't be buying this.
On the other hand I do own many items that I purchased legally through surplus marketplaces run by the military and it is marked as property of the US Government. Much of it is from pre- WW2.
It's easier than you think.... Stay on the porch
nope............not military property..............the sights, like the crimson trace laser grips, gerber tools and benchmade knives (were never marked as us property) were given to the troops, not to the military. troops were allowed to keep them upon completion of deployment.
