If it works and it is cheaper, great; competition benefits the consumer.  I really like ACOGs, but they are expensive.  if someone can do it as well and cheaper, I don't have too much of a problem with it.

 

They are probably all made in China with lead paint anyway.

Those are just repackaged red dot sights.  While they look like ACOGs externally, i do not think there are any other similarities.

I have never thought much of Bushnell however I am impressed with the 4200 series of scopes but if they discontinued all the rest of the line it would be no loss to the world of optics. Why is there such a similarity between their

S-man's Guide had them about a year ago when I first asked about them.  As Ilya said they are just funky looking dot sights....I played with one at C-belas and was not impressed....you can have a Leapers 6x acogish styled scope for a fib on most less repetable websites (I bought one from Tapco about 3 years ago) and you will at least have magnification and an illuminated reticle....I plan to put mine on a AR .22 kit at some point.....it's safely nestled on the shelf in my son's closet until then.  I would not waste the money for style points when you can get a cheap BSA dot scope for $30 and get similar chinese quality.
