Please I beg you read this review!
This deserves zero stars! It is not real it is a knock off. Beware who you order from and research your optic. I will post pictures so you can verify if yours is real or not. 1st a real Eotech comes in a plastic hard case not some cheap cardboard box. Also the lens will never have any type of reflective tinting. The reason is because a real Eotech uses a holographic sight this sight uses a LED. If you tilt the optic you can see the LED lights being projected. The next thing is a real Eotechs reticle is blurry or fuzzy and that is due to it being a holographic again whereas a LED has a clean picture. On a real Eotech the Night Vision or NV button will dim the reticle to hardly visible and this is due to the fact that night vision goggles will jot work with the reticle too bright it needs minimum light to function properly but if you press the NV button and the reticle color changes it is a fake mine turned green. A real Eotech does not have a spring in the battery well and the battery is not loose also the real Eotech will have a rubber O ring gasket on the battery cap. Please if you are inexperienced with Eotech do your research. The moment I saw the box it came in and the sight itself I knew it was a knockoff. I could see how someone unexperienced could be fooled though. Also another thing a real eotech has nice feeling firm buttons whereas this one is very low quality. If you compared them you could feel the difference in quality. Amazon needs to look at their inventory and get rid of these. It is not real Amazon I am begging you to check your inventory before someone unsavvy buys one and sues your company for false advertising. I have already called and emailed notifying your customer service but I really like Amazon and would hate for a law suit to arise. I have included a real Eotech compared to this cheap knock off. A real one also has the positive symbol on the battery cap whereas a fake is smooth and flat.

**WARNING** DO NOT BUY
I am an avid shooter, and have used pretty much every Optic option available on any type of gun. For some reason Amazon is selling this replica of a optic! It is NOT the OEM version of this optic, its cheaply made, doesn't come with original packaging and to add insult to injury was also even used. I feel sorry for buyers who may not know previous products from EOtech and purchase this.

Great Weapon Sight
By Rick 2416
I really liked this Eotech. The particular model I ordered had a few hiccups, that said I ultimately returned it. I am a big fan of both Eotech and Aimpoint sights. I believe they both perform very well. The only downside for me with the Eotech, and this is not the fault of the weapon sight at all, is that your vision needs to be spot on to see the reticle clearly. While the 2 MOA dot on my Aimpoint Comp M4S may be a just a tad blurry, this is much more pronounced on the Eotech if your vision is not quite up to speed or properly corrected. To me, the 65 MOA circle and 1 MOA dot was extremely blurry (not pixilated, just plain blurry). At first I thought it was a problem with the Eotech, then i took a picture of the reticle with my camera and the sight picture was clear as day in the picture. Again, this is more of a personal downfall (the fact that I am near-sighted) rather than an issue with the weapon sight. In my opinion you really can't go wrong with this Eotech, it provides a great field of view. However, those with inadequate vision may find that an Aimpoint better suits their needs.
