I've read these red dots are made by the same factory in South Korea.  Has any one compared them side by side.  I know the S.P.O.T. is the same as well, and I've read great reviews on those and they seem to be in the middle price wise.  I guess the real question is, if they are exactly the same, is there any reason to go with the Burris over the Tasco.

I can much more easily tell you why I would not go with either of them.  First of all let me say that 5moa is 5 inches at 100 yds and will cover 10 inches at 200 yds.  That is not accuracy you might as well use a compas to sight with.   The scopes I recommend are the 2moa versions of the Aimpoint.  Yea they cost a lot more however what the dot is on is really where the bullet hits.  The design is patented and nobody else builds one the same way because they own the patent.  With everybody elses sight if your head is not in exactly the same position every time the shot will be off - not so with aimpoint you can shoot standing on your head holding it with your feet and if the dot is on it you hit it.

I do not know if I would look at this sight for accuracy work, so 5MOA might not be much of a hindrance.  With my Millett ZoomDot, where I can vary the dot size from 1MOA to 10MOA, I can definitely see the advantage a larger dot offers at some situations.  Generally speaking, I tend to sight in my red dot sights for 6 o'clock hold (I suppose it is a habit I carried over from handgun shooting) and a larger dot size does not bother me a whole lot.

I can't comment on those two sights but I will say that lots of companies use the same optics factories, but that does not mean that the products or quality are the same. Each specifies the components, optics, coatings and the quality of construction that they are willing to pay for. Assuming the rumor is true I seriously doubt that a $100 sight shares anything with a $250 sight beyond GPS coordinates of the factory.
