Ordered a Hakko Tacpoint 1 (Aimpoint M2 clone) for $97.00, got it 2 days later in excellent shape, Snake Run was very fast on shipping this. Also emailed them as to the current availability of the Tacpoint (just to make sure they had it) and received a prompt reply. Will do business with them again. Nice little red dot scope. The flip caps are a little cheesy and the Weaver ring isn't a quick remove type but the optics look clear and it has 5 position dot intensity levels.
While definately not an Aimpoint, I didn't spend $400.00 for it either. Will be very interesting on how it does at the range.

With friends, this is a cool world; without friends, it would be unbearably cold.
Damn I thought this thread was about something else

I recently read (on weaponeer.net I think) that these sights were very durable and the guy did all the tests - drop test, underwater test, etc. and it passed them all.
Just thought that I would mention that the "new" Hakko Tacpoint red dot scopes come with the wording "TACPOINT - Blue Ring" in the color blue and a blue ring around the back of the scope (which you can see in my pictures). The "BLUE" wording is easily removed (which I did) using paint stripper. I thought that the "BLUE" wording looked a little strange on the matte black scope. The "BLUE" ring would not come off. So I will probbly have to paint over it using flat black Aluma-Hyde II (maybe I did find a use for the stuff...LOL).
Near as I can tell, there is no "Hakko Tacpoint 1" listed at the URL you gave... Do you have a specific URL for the product?
Aha! Found the info I was looking for. Apparently there was a flame war that started a brush fire, and lucky for us we get the benefits of "just the facts" without the heat:
In short, "good but not great" and subject to QA issues just like anything else.
