Just get the Holosun SCS. Everyone who calls it Chinese crap is just biased since it’s made in China. It’s high quality and has been vetted by Sage Dynamics. If it was made in USA, it would cost twice as much. Many companies also don’t mill MOS slides, so you’re stuck with a plate for RMR.
The Chinese are inferior engineers and manufacturers. All they do is reverse engineer and copy someone else, often making mistakes. Also, their entire culture is currently based on graft and short cuts. The only reason companies outsourced to China was lax environmental/pollution controls and the majority of their labor was about a step from "Feudal Peasant". BTW, the majority of their manufacturing labor is still subpar. Their products are crap and there isn't a single product that you can name that is "better" than a US manufactured one.
Giving the Communist Party of China our money makes zero sense when 1) they are divesting of US Treasuries and aligning monetarily and commodity wise as competitors weakening our economy 2) supporting and supplying Russia against US interests in Ukraine (not that we should be supporting Ukraine, but there it is). 3) Taiwan, as in we will eventually be in a shooting war with them 4) they are communist suckasses who developed and released covid on the world and more importantly the US
So, am I biased? Yep. f*** China and f*** communists. Buy American, if you can, when you can. If you're all so short-sighted that saving a few bucks is more important than addressing the above, well, you're a skinflint of the worst order and deserve heaps of scorn.
most companies who claim 'made in USA' just do a final assembly step domestically, and that may be literally like a last 1/4 turn of the one single bolt of the whole unit. as long as last hands to touch it were here - it is a 'made in USA' stamp worthy.
So, an American company that manufacturers in the US employs Americans and keeps the money in the US. A foreign company that manufacturers in the US employs Americans. Doesn't really matter if it's final assembly or full-on nuts to bolts. Supply chains are condensing however as the age of globalism comes to a close and economies adapt to more nationalization and regionalization. Bottom line, the worst is to buy something that has superior US competitors from a foreign competitor that manufactures outside the US. Holosun is Chinese made shit. I could almost forgive someone for buying it if they did final assembly in the US, but they don't. Full on Chinese. Like I said, I don't have a problem buying foreign, I own cars made in Germany and one made in the US with most of the parts from Japan. I own some Euro based optics, etc. What I won't do whenever possible is give China more of my money. I actively go out of my way to not buy China. Sure, it doesn't always work, but that isn't the point, is it?
Yeah, but only Trijicon comes with a bible reference engraved on each unit - which apparently was considered uncool when the US military was operating in Muslim nations.
I never heard one soldier complain about the bible references. Plenty were regularly wearing moral patches that were explicitly offensive to Muslims, and that's OK. War isn't about being polite or even politically correct...
