    Just an update... Amazon promptly refunded my money on the two fakes and I bought two more shipped directly from Amazon (not a third party). Both of those are good to go.

    I've got a couple PAs and a Vortex. They are nice, but also cost two to three times what a TRS-25 does yet aren't 2-3x better. I hope the Vortex is more durable than the others, but I know the TRS-25s are plenty durable for the plinkers they are going on.

    82 for the Burris.
    89 for the PA.

    Never had any issues with multiple PA products. The 89 dollar dot is one that I have had for 5 years on multiple guns, finally replaced the first battery this summer. Not seeing the 2-3x cost.

    I would never buy an optic from Amazon. Seen way to many issues, but to each their own.

    Definitely avoid the third party sellers on Amazon, but this link here is for the sights that are shipped from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00200E0HM/
    Amazon gets them direct from Bushnell.

    The problem is that when it comes from a third party vendor you have no guarantee that it is the real deal. Unless Bushnell put it up for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

    Holly shit I just saw that video and it helped confirm it's a fake. Didn't know this was you're ass until I looked into it more. The poor guy who sold it to me probably never knew it was a fake.

    Hmm...I was in the market for one of these. Will steer clear of amazon now and stick with a more trusted vendor.
