View Full Version : Beware of the Aimpoint Clones.... = CRAP

March 2, 2009, 09:12 AM
My brother picked up an Aimpoint Clone looked like the real thing, but only $79 on Gunbroker. Took it out this weekend and tried it on an AR15. Didn't last a mag. After a few rounds the dot would just go off. You could turn the knob and it would come back on then back off. Also the adjustment caps would fall off. Don't waste your $$$$$.

I am with ya there, but for sometimes price will suprise you. I bought a Bushnell Trophy T Dot scope for $100 and the damn thing is AWESOME. I also picked up a Cabela's brand red dot for $69 and it works very well. I guess for $79 I figured it would be somewhat reliable. Heck it wouldn't hold up for a day of fighting off agressive bowling pins. :)

Americans complain that there are no jobs in America but a lot of them are OK with spending money on items made in China that clearly are trademark infringements. Buy the real deal products, especially if they are made in the USA and support your neighbors.

Beware of anything made in China. Kind of like Jessica Simpson-looks great on the outside but messed up on the inside.

Sorry, Jess- does that mean no dinner tomorrow?
