nope they're made in Ann Arbor, Michigan.Hmm...i've played with them both....take this with a grain of salt....but I can afford either or both..
Eotech - Nice display / holographic technology (i.e. it DOES not matter what happens to the glass..it can break, crack, fall out...as long as there is a 1/4" piece left, even with cracks, then you will see the reticle). When I look through it, I can appreciate the 0 (for the 553 as an example, but heck it's the same display on the 511 for around 0).
Aimpoint - G.I. issue to the DOD. Made in sweden (eotech made in america..maine to be exact).
http://www.eotech-inc.com/about.phpSince 2001, L-3 EOTech has seen sales grow over 600% and appears to be continuing along the same trend in 2007. With this incredible growth comes the need for larger capacity and production capability. To supplement this need, L-3 EOTech has recently moved to a newly renovated, independent, larger facility on the south side of Ann Arbor, MI located at 1201 E. Ellsworth Rd.
