I own 2 eotech HWS (xps2-0 and xps2-2) and am curious if anyone has experienced thermal drift issues with their sights. Long story short, I have noticed that my eotechs will not hold zero from range trip to range trip. At 100 yards I cannot hit a 12”wide by 14” tall (guesstimate) steel torso when aiming at center mass. When I co-witness the eotech and foldable irons I can clearly see that the eotech zero has changed. Both my eotechs have this issue and sadly the newer one has a bigger issue with thermal drift than my older one. I never noticed the thermal drift issue until I joined cherry ridge and was able to shoot at 100 yards regularly when I used to only shoot at 25 yards.
Which leads me to my question.
Has any1 pursued legal action against eotech in NJ? Or is there a class action lawsuit in NJ? I am sure ppl have heard or seen http://www.eotechlawsuit.com/ and am wondering if anyone has contacted them or similar attorney/law office ect.
I know they have a refund/repair but this is a HUGE issue and I believe they should not get a free pass by using their refund loophole.
Extra credit question.
What is everyone using in place of an eotech? IE a 1x sight.
So i finally got to take "Krystal", my Umbrella Corp. build to the range yesterday. Robs609 and my self helped Firearms Training Sepulveda Firearms Training film some instructional videos at Shooters last night. While Robs609 got to shoot her more than i did, i was able to pop off a few rounds and give a quick test to the Umbrella Corp BCG and SSA trigger i installed yesterday. Rob, Kharis and myself agree... the SSA Trigger is where it's at! So much smoother and tighter than the Spikes Battle Trigger i had in there before.
shot about 50 rounds w/no FTF or FTE with the new Umbrella BCG. More info on that after i get some more trigger time on her.
anyway, here are a few photos and vids from yesterday.. check out that muzzle flash! lol
Thanks to ROBS609 for being our designated shooter for the videos.
So for the most part I'm finished with my first ar. I'm still struggling with what optic to put on it. I am a good shot with iron sights out to 500 and went with the a2 upper and flip rear so I would always have that option. That being said I'd like to be spoiled and get an optic with a little magnification. I'm used to the trijicon rco with a chevron, but at 1100-1300 dollars I'm open for suggestions lol. I was also looking at eo tech holo sight with a magnifier, but seeing as I have never used one its lost on me. (I know they can be equally expensive, but I'm not so much worried about price as I am quality and applicability)
Some key points:
-target acquisition. Short and long
-durability (not gonna treat this rifle like a new born)
-how well it holds a zero
-if talking about optics using batteries please at least estimate battery life
Thanks for any suggestions or input/personal experience
Then, stuck in the middle are people like me: I just received an FID card and two permits to purchase about a week before everything got shut down. I applied many months before I had ever heard the term "Coronavirus." The gun I ordered is at the store ready for pickup, but of course I can't go pick it up. So if this shutdown continues past the expiration date of my permits, then what? I called the police station and they're not taking visitors from the public now to process renewals. My permit could theoretically expire and I won't be able to use it?
