if you are really wanting to build one yourself, go to a gun show and buy a cheap one(or order one online). then take it apart. :D

I doubt you can make one for as cheap as just buying one. Unless you already have a laser and the optics ...

Shop around some more. I've seen the low end Red Dots for less than $30 at places like Kmart or Miejers.

As I understand it, there is an LED which faces away from your eye. Somewhere forward of it, there is a lens. The lens has a coating so that it reflects the light from the LED back towards your eye. You line the reflection of the LED up in the center of the lens, and that's it. Some of these types of sight have a crosshair or other marking on the lens to make it easier to line up.

It doesn't seem like it would be hard to make something similar. However, it would be significantly harder to make a good one.

You understood part of it. Normaly the light is at a right angle to the axisis of the scope and the scope has a glass at an angle inside so as you look through the scope, the red dot from the LED is superimposed on the field of view.

What seperates the good scopes is the focus of the spot. Idealy you want the spot to appear as it is on your target. To do this, a lens is required to make the light source appear distant, so it focuses the same aparrant distance as the target. This extra optics is what makes a good scope better than a cheap one.

This projection of a virtual image of the spot at a far distance in the same plane as the target makes a good scope.

http://www.bullseyepistol.com/dotsight.htm Note this uses the angled lens to make the virtual spot appear far.
