Straw man arguments. What type of cell phone and computers/monitors are you using to type your replies? Want to guess if they contain Chinese circuits and glass?

I'm all for buying American if they have comparable features and am willing to pay a bit more if so. But that really is not the case with the recent Holosun/Sig red dot optics. Not every rifle I have needs an Aimpoint, Eotech or higher priced scope when the Sig Romeo5 XDR's gets the job done for me reliably and accurately for far less than half the price. I like the Romeo5 XDR better than my Eotech and it can do things my Aimpoint's can not. They are not junk. If I should ever get a bad one I have Sig Sauer's warranty to rely upon.

As much as wish they weren't made in BatFluLandia .. And would pay extra for them being made in the good ole U.S of A.... I got 2 of the Holosun 503G ACSS, and I love them. Seems to have done very well on all the YouTube torture tests!....?

I had a early batch 507c that was on a range toy... died fast and I sent it back. Put the 2nd one on a G19 and we will see how it does. Slide mounted RDS get beat up pretty good during normal use. I have had RMR's that can't handle it either. Never had issues with Aimpoint Pro or MRO... but those are not mounted on slides. I also have a 503GU that has survived so far, but I haven't dropped it on carpet or anything.

Seems you are missing the whole point here.
Thereís a thing about Chinese manufacturing. They only make it to the spec that they are told and paid for. Lots of good Chinese stuff it itís manufactured properly ďcell phones , TVs ,computers , gaming devices.

So yeah not all stuff coming out of China is garbage but if there is an American alternative, Iím buying the American product before the Chinese product. Canít really do that with phones, TVs , and other electronics as the market is cornered there. But optics and other gun accessories thankfully have strong American roots and I can buy almost any American made gun part that a Chinese manufacturer has replicated to some extent.

I picked up myself a Holosun HS510C w/ their 3x magnifier. They are a solid company with solid products. You can actually see other vendors at Shot Show mounting Holosun products on their firearms when it was previously primarily Trijicon, Aimpoint, and EOTech.
