Holo Sights.......alternatives to dark clones? - General Discussion - Airsoft Forums UK
This is a common problem for clone/repro sights marketed as "holosights".

In reality they are just normal red dot sights placed inside a Holosight body and often with all the EoTech branding poorly slapped on. The reason for the mirroring is that for the red dot to illuminate or bounce back so you can see it they mirror the front so it reflects back to you. The down side of that is that it reduces the level of light coming to you, imagine it like a sunglasses lens.



A real EoTech has clear glass on both front and back allowing you to see through and though without the level of light diminishing.

Like @tinkle60 said an older EoTech such as a 552 can be had for around £250 (i plan to get another), they are built like tanks and don't break as easily as the clones do. The best clone EoTech is the Hurricane ones but even these dressed up "holosights" cost £120 brand new, at that rate your better off buying once and getting the real thing.



If none of this makes sense you can read tis article from EoTech: http://www.eotechinc.com/sites/default/files/client/recognizing-counterfeit-sights_0.pdf

Eotech replica lens too dark? : airsoft
Just received my Eotech 553 replica from Aliexpress, and the rear lens is so dark you can barley see out of it! I purchased this sight because it had many good reviews, but it seems I might have been jipped. I contacted the seller and he says the sight is supposed to be like that and people like it for outdoor shooting in the daylight. Problem is even in daylight I have a hard time seeing in shadows which essentially makes this sight useless to me.
