    Well, it’s always an option. A better comparison to the Vortex might be the venerable EOTech. Let’s see THAT comparison. Same price range.

    I wish I could consider a $600 red dot “mid priced” haha. Gotta work harder I guess!

    Is it just me, or is anybody else confused as to why these things should cost more than $50-$100. I don’t understand what makes a $700 eotech cost that much!

      I wanna know how they avoid parallax issues. Isn’t there just one lens?

      Optics are hard to make. It is even harder to make good optics, that is why they are expensive. That and the fact that people earn more here in Europe where many expensive, quality optics are made.

        Clarity of glass (or whatever optical material), correct surface profile, good surface finish, assorted coatings (which also have to be of high quality) all make good optics hard to do right.

        Now put them together correctly, eg well-aligned. Also often not trivial to do well.

        Now add shockproof mounting and alignment systems (recoil hits everything attached to the gun) to the price tag.

        Add it all up and even a seemingly simple optical system can get pretty expensive.
