I'm really interested in the 2x model. But have only heard bad things about them.

Most red dots by vendors other than Trijicon/Reflex, Aimpoint, Burris, Meprolight, and EoTech are Chinese junk.

I looked at one yesterday. The glass is very clear and the red dot is very bright but here is the only problem I can see.

since it is a 2x your field of view is very narrow. It will be perfect for the range at 100 yards but would be sh*tty for home defense. Unless you were defending your cows from coyotes.

Will these chinese junk red dots be OK on .22lr?

If your life depends on your optics, stick with a tried and trued brand like Aimpoint, EOTech or Trijicon. I used Aimpoints for years but moved over to EOTech's for a variety of reasons. Aimpoint has addressed most of my concerns with their Comp ML series, so I put both pretty much on the same level for non-magnified CCOs. From what I've learned over the years, stick with:

Aimpoint
- if the vast majority of your targets are under 100m

EOTech
- if you target range varries dramatically (up to 300m)
- you intend to shoot from a moving vehicle

The main difference is that the EOTech's 65MOA ring is easy to pick up, but the 1MOA dot does not obscure 150m+ targets the way the 4MOA Aimpoints do (Aimpoint has a 2MOA version now). Also, because of the holographic nature of the EOTech, it's much easier to shoot accurately without having a consistent cheek/stock weld.

I understand dthe bushnell holosights are the same as the eotech without the armored hood. you can save about $75. just remember the optics make the rifle. you are beter off with iron than crappy glass

I would add the Docter Optics in there.

Don't forget about the C-MORE sight. I have the CTAC model on my Car-15 and love it.
