EOTech Counterfeit Update: Anaheim CA
The most recent update on the counterfeit scandal surrounding EOTech Holographic Sights involves a guilty plea from the accused Isaac Cheuk Hang Tse and Pao Sheng Yang. Paul Mangano, President of EOTech had the following to say, "This fight against counterfeit products is not about lost corporate margins. Our concern centers around the fact that counterfeit models do not offer the holograpic technology available in a true EOTech. If a military or law enforcement officer is mistakenly using a counterfeit model they are unknowingly adding additional risk to already life threatening situations. The lives and safety of our countries civil servants are this companies highest concern and these counterfeit products are putting those lives at risk." EOTech supports the departements and individuals involved in attempting to stop this counterfeit product from entering the country and stands proudly behind its Made in the USA products.
