Chinese Army Optics---What Do They Do?

Recommended Posts

In the beginner's forum we are discussing red dots and which is the best (for AR15s).

 

http://ar15armory.com/forums/topic/168981-choosing-a-red-dot/page-2

 

The red dot maker Holosun came up and they make some interesting red dots, one solar powered. But are they durable? I am wondering if the Holosun is Chinese, which I am told it is, is the Holosun used by the Chinese on their AK type weapons? Since these are known as durable, it would make no sense to put a delicate red dot on a rifle which is accustomed to taking some abuse. Or, do they use something else? What do you guys think?

A lot of scopes- a majority, I'd say, are made in China. All of the inexpensive ones are made in China. I wouldn't assume that because it is made in China, it is used by their military.

If you are looking into an inexpensive red dot that can take abuse, check out the Soviet optics from Kalinka Optics.

I think I hit the wrong button and disliked you post but I actually wanted to hit the "like" instead, sorry.

There's no consistency with optics (scopes) when it comes to their ground forces. I don't think they do much red dotting. It's as though each political district has an independent army. They don't but a lot of equipment is indigenous. But they also use nice glass such as Kahles (Austrian). As is so common in the far east, there's a really good chance it comes down to bribes.
