RSR was supposed to have a huge shipment at the end of July, so there must be somekind of delay getting them into the country or something.

my guess is that we'll never see them anywhere in the US.

I have been thinking the same thing. It is certainly a possibility that Aimpoint's lawyers talked to Hakko's lawyers and convinced them to rethink their marketing plans. I can understand Aimpoint objecting to the sale of the Tacpoint clone.

ETA - If this is case, then all the Tacpoint brouhaha was for naught. LOL

And if someone asked who has Aimpoints, EoTechs or ACOGs in stock it would get locked too?

I see no reason why this thread would be locked, simply because of a name.
If your post is nothing other than "yes, they are in stock here" or "I heard it might be a while", then I suggest the nay-sayers and instigators move along to another thread. Thanks.

I'm afraid you're probably on to something here. Our group buy at FAL Files from Texas Tactical is stalled.
Link Posted: 8/15/2004 8:44:10 AM EDT
Perhaps Aimpoint would rethink their marketing policy if in fact the Hakko people have somehow been blocked from further supplies. The only losers here , as usual, would be joe public. But hey. If some marketing dim-wit fails to recognise buying trends, what markets are worth $wise to a variety of potential buyers why should they lose out. Nothing like being complacent when you're on top of your game ----- if you want to lose business to competitors that is.
What happened to free enterprise and a competitive marketplace ? I guess these days it's easier to call the lawyer to "shut em down".
Could someone out there confirm or deny--officially- what is going on :RSR perhaps or one of the retailers regarding the unexpected delay in tac-point deliveries

well, for me not a problem, I'll be in Japan (Tokyo) sometime in October. I'll have to research an outlet from where I might get these items (Akihabara?)

Should'nt this be in the Airsoft forum,,,, Oh wait,,,,, we dont have an airsoft forum ,,,,sorry!
Link Posted: 8/16/2004 10:46:17 PM EDT
thegunsource.com doesn't have them in stock, but I was told they are currently in customs, and should be available by the end of this week. I assume they are waiting for the RSR shipment. Though, it sounds like a lot of you guys may have been told similar things to this before, which makes me wonder if maybe something really is wrong.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 8:10:12 AM EDT
I have conversed via email with Justin DeWell out of RSR's Milwaukee office. He indicates they are inbound and it just a matter of time. Lots of things can impact delivery schedules of that magnitude. I would be interested in knowing how nightvisionweb bypassed RSR, however. They must have ordered directly from Hakko and at an earlier date.

No, it shouldn't. The Tacpoint is a viable red-dot scope for a real rifle.

Perhaps you should find another thread to troll ...

I really don't understand why some people are so adamant about the whole copyright infringement with Aimpoint when there are numerous other manufactures that make products "similar" to other's originals. All red dot optics are similar in function to the "original". Why doesn't everyone get upset at Meprolight for their reflex sight that is nearly identical to the Trijicon model? What about the asian knock-off optics that are copies of the Hakko BED-24 and BED-35? Why do all "regular" scopes look and operate the same and numerous companies models are identical to other companies products. Just because two companies products look similar and utilize the same principles to work does NOT mean they are copies or using stolen designs. If those of you who think that Aimpoint should persue Hakko because the optics look similar and operate on the same principles then you should also encourage Ford to go after every other auto manufacturer because other cars have internal combustion engines and run on four tires.

Just my first and last rant for those who can't let the Tacpoint stand on its own for what it is.


P.S. I'm buying one when they clear customs.

If Aimpoint really gets it's panties in a wad, maybe they'll just have to lower the prices a bit to compensate for the competition. Afterall, isn't that exactly what our economic system is supposed to be about? The Aimpoint monopoly on such sights is exactly the reason why we have been paying $100-$200 too much when we buy one.

Me, I'm gonna give the Hakko a try. If it meets my needs, then I will buy more later.

Actually, it's a pretty simple concept. It's on the label that is affixed to the product, which is required by federal law. Now you know.
