Default EoTech ??

Are the EoTech sights really worth the extra money. To be honest all I have ever used are thw clones and cheaper ones. I am looking at trading for a EoTech 553 w/ 3x magnifier w/ tip off base, but they are kinda pricy?
I understand spending the money on glass and quality, but these are red dot sights? Just wanting some input before I jump at it. Thanks for all the help.

I have had one on my patrol SBR for 6 years, I've beat it to death it's been in three serious car accidents, shootouts, been thrown down on the concrete. Literally beat to death. That being said if you are not going to be using I like it was designed dont buy it. A clone will do the same for accuracy and you won't have near the money in it. If your working the streets, or going to be in a life depends on it situation then yes get it. It is made to take abuse. If you are just plinking and not trying to have a status symbol at the range, buy the knockoff.

Default Thanks

Didn't you know that at night I become my alter ego super hero, Capt' Crunch and patroll the Truman/ Cervantes area. That is about what I figured, I have 3 or so of various clones, and most of them work good enough. Usally issues in batt compartment from recoil. I do like quality items, but it would be on my only ar which i like to shoot but gets little use until the zombie come, then a electrical pulse will zap them out anyway right.

I have an eotech 516 with the g23FTS magnifier, its great. I have a lot of quality optics, and it is probably my favorite to shoot with.

If your gonna go that deep on an optic that won't be seeing combat, get the Trijicon. No batteries and will take abuse well.

I have a Bushnell Holosight. It was given to me, so I put it on an AR. It's just like an Eotech withouth the shroud and nightvision capability.
I like it. A lot cheaper than an Eotech as well.

I bought the EXPS 2-0 from Primary Arms, came with a free 3x magnifier, and it works great.
