    Where is EOTech made? I'm too lazy to search.

    I will be surprised if it has a steady/firm mount, solid red dot, and adjusts accurately. For the money -worth a shot though!

    Looking forward to your report.

    Made by L3 Communications, but I have no idea where the factory is to be found. I suspect it is US somewhere due to the export restrictions shown on the bottom of http://www.eotech-inc.com/.

    L3 is a big outfit with fingers in many pies, a lot of it military.

    I've got one of the eotech knockoffs for my 9 yo's airsoft rifle, think I paid $55 delivered for mine.

    The lens is definitely not as clear as the lens on my real eotechs. Only other place I can tell a difference is on the plastic cover that controls the on/off and brightness seems thinner. The frame and mount appear to be exactly the same.

    Not sure how it would handle recoil but it's definitely taken his abuse jumping, crawling and running through the woods playing army. We sighted it in and it's stayed on target, he got me in the face three times at around 20 yards last time we hunted each other.

    I'll take some pics of it and post them later.

    Knock off is on the right, I'll put a beer on it. (Dings help the certainty, knowing the shooter's age --)

    Plus it has a slightly glossy effect, and I can see "Eotech" prinited on the far left one. Besides that, it's a hat trick.

    Yeah I gave too much info about clone up front, the one on the right is the clone. Now which reticle is the clone?

    And don't rely on writing to tell if it's a clone. Here's one of my buddies clones that has eotech all over it, that's one of the ways you can tell it's a clone it has eotech everywhere.

    Here's the mount area of the eotechs. The clone mount is very similar to the real ones.

    One other thing I'll add about the clone is the battery life is much better than the real one. I have to take the N size batteries out of the real one or it will drain them in a couple of months. Had batteries in the clone for 6 months and they still work fine. Don't have that problem with the aa battery version, maybe something is wrong with my small one.

    I'd be interested to hear how the clone holds up to recoil.

    Clone is on the right. You can tell by the buttons.

    Hey i got mine in last week and took it out to shoot this weekend. Mounted it on a .223 MAK90. Took about 15 rounds to find out i was adjusting it the wrong way[beat]. After that and a few rounds later i was poppin 2 liter bottles @ about 30yards. So far I have shot 60 rounds with it since i just wanted to get it sighted in, But its holdin up pretty good so far.

    Did I miss the review somewhere? It looks a little interesting for $40...

    A new house is pretty important -- sorry to pester you! I can wait [troll]

    It's been a pretty wet and cold Winter here too (~400 miles away), but it's starting to finally warm up.

    Well, I took mine out again last weekend. Its still mounted on the .223 MAK 90. Tiny adjustment and this thing is pretty much dead on. Only problems are how reflective the the glass (or plastic, didnt check) is. Bright day you almost have to stand in the shade to see the red holo. Turn it up to max brightness is only option but get the sun in the wrong spot and all you see is glare.. but good for the price. I'd order another.[gun]

    I wonder if some anti glare film would fix that or help a little?
