It was inevitable that someone would make a copy sooner or later, but I think this offering is too pricey for what you get:

You're right, it's a bit expensive for what you get...a knock off. You can get the real thing for a little more:

Ah, good find Tim.

The EOTech 502 is the older generation model and is identical to the Bushnell Holosight. The new 510/550 series optics, known as "F Series" for their stamping on the hood, have higher effeciency electronics and more robust button pad. The 511 is about $70 more than the one you found.

Personally, I had been looking for a used Bushnell and had planned on mounting a hood direct-ordered from EOTech onto it, but since the Bushnells are selling for $190+ on eBay, I think I need to look into your source and get the real deal.

The owner is a very nice guy. I met him at the last gun show in San Antonio. He really does have great prices on his items.
