    Because it's a red dot sight that is turned on.. an because of the light.. angle, etc it looks like a red lense.

    They always look that way, regardless of it being off or on. The LED doesn't light up the inside of the sight, making it visibly red from the outside. The red coating on the lens is a reflective coating that makes the "dot" visible on the lens to the shooter. Looking at the sight from the front, the only way you can tell it's on is to hold it close and you can see a tiny red light up in the top of the tube, towards the back.
