I'm sure there have been more than a few threads started about the pros and cons of using an Airsoft knockoff vice the "real deal". Generally an arguement of sacrificing quality for price.

Anywho... I thought I'd try to get a thread going here with all of the ACCESSORY knockoffs in one place. I'm by no means an Airsoft expert, but once in a while I see an Airsoft "toy" that I would consider buying as opposed to the real deal (because of price).

For anyone adding items into this thread, please limit it to ACCESSORIES. I'll define that as being:
- Scopes/optics/sites and mounts
- Handguards
- Foregrips/Pistol Grips
- Flashlights
- Lasers
- Mono- Bi- tri-pods

In other words... NO GUNS!!!

So here goes... I'm not going to get it all done in one night... I'll work on it as I have time. I'll add any new information into the original post.

Depending on the response of this thread I'll see if it's worth having it tacked and/or moved to the AR Accessories forum.

OPTICS

Here's a link to an Airsoft retail site that seems to carry quite a bit of everything. WGC Shop

Aimpoint Clone:
HAKKO TacPoint: A knockoff of the Aimpoint CompM2-series scopes. There are plenty of other knockoffs of the Aimpoint as well. The TacPoint seems to get the most discussion around here because it's considered by some to be a "real weapon-grade" optic.

TACPOINT FAQ. Everything you want to know and a few things you don't

ACOG Clone:
I'm not sure there is a recognizable name-brand of the ACOG Clones. Action, G&P, and Guarder...
