    Regarding the original post, yes, I knew Holosun is made in China. And I was all set to buy a 510C or 512C until this virus hit us. And then I learned more about how China covered it up initially, etc.
    So I am having a real hard time now buying ANYTHING from China if there is an alternative. They have been screwing us for years, stealing our technology, etc.
    So I am now leaning toward the Eotech 512. May cost a bit more, and honestly would prefer the Holosun if it were made anywhere else (Philippines, etc.)
    But I just don't like the idea of putting any more money into their dictatorship than I have to.
    For more information, research the following terms:
    Belt and Road initiative
    China 2025 initiative

    Eotechs will serve you just fine. The paralax issue, and bad battery life was a big reason they were slammed on this forum, and there was some merit to that. Their crisp reticle plays well with my astigmatism, and they are very fast acquiring for me.

    That being said, "manufacturers" aren't above repacking/relabeling foreign made items as being US made.

    The Sig Romeo 4Ms SIG sold to the FBI were imported as parts kits and assembled by a subcontractor in CA in an attempt to be Berry amendment compliant.

    I donít have heartburn with Holosun or SIG offshoring to China as long as they are honest about it but SIGís little stunt is BS.

    for those saying its common knowledge, do you mean insider gun culture knowledge? If its public knowledge please include links to a source.
    It is common knowledge Holosun, SIG and Primary Arms red dots are all made in China. Itís on the optics, the packaging and , as you said yourself itís on the about us tab of their website - how much more obvious do you want it to be ?

    Where do you think the lower end Vortex and Leopoldo products are made .

    How did you think they made the price points they sell at ?

    There is no free lunch. You want or need a duty grade optic you pay duty grade money for an Aimpoint or current generation eotech.

    I donít think the Berry amendment applies to optics. I've always understood it to primarily be there to protect the textiles industry and a few other basic needs.

    I do think we should buy American wherever possible. But then again I did just buy an iPhone 11.

    I will use Aimpoint when my life’s on the line, but they really should take lessons from Holoson on how to get a nice sharp, well defined and round dot. I also think it would be interesting if someone could and would take apart comparable models of both brands to at least show visually the internal components and construction differences.

    If they are really slick they use "internationally sourced" in place of foreign.
