Yeah, I ordered another one yesterday from Optics Planet. (Have the standard, ordered the AK762 version) They dropped the price a bit like I thought might happen. Going to try a BOBRO mount with this one.
I like mine a lot. This is the fix for the known problem some people have with the illumination switch loosening up after shooting with it for awhile. Took me about 2 minutes to take apart, add thread locker & reassemble.
I just did it out of the box to mine. (Do 2 at a time so you don't have to line anything back up, and check the switch tension & adjust before you reassemble. If you crank the screws all the way down you'll tighten it so much the switch is almost impossible to turn on .)
Seems to be the only repeated complaint about it I could find that wasn't an outlier. Something they should take note of and do at the factory. (Mr. Fortier, if you have contacts at the company you should make them aware of this & suggest it if possible.)
If mine just keeps doing what it's doing I'm surprisingly happy with it. I thought I'd get it and immediately have buyers remorse and want the Vortex I was looking at instead. A hell of a scope for the money so far.
