is this a known problem? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a fix?

Thanks

Contact Wilcox yet? They fixed some stuff I had.

No, but that’s a good idea

I had a Steiner ITAL shut off under recoil. I had to send it in and they fixed it. Maybe it s a similar issue.  Hopefully Wilcox will treat you right.

Does it shut off completely, or flicker? Maybe the battery cap isn't on tight enough

Shuts off completely and snaps back on when I hit the laser button. I pulled the cap and ever so gently stretched the spring, then tightened it back down.

I’m hoping this fixes it. If I have a real issue, I doubt Wilcox warranties it as it’s “obsolete”.




OTOH, maybe I’ll get a RAID-X out of it if they don’t.




ETA: I’m hoping to go out hunting tonight, so maybe I’ll get a chance to test it out.

It turned off on the shots on both of the following trash pandas.

Sounds kind of stupid but did you try another fresh battery? I had a similar issue with one, I replaced the battery and it worked 100%. It’s probably not the issue but worth a try for maybe a simple fix.

I didn’t, but I’ll change it before I go out tonight.

Well, maybe a similar issue for your consideration.  The earlier OTAL's from Laser Products(?) had a batt bounce issue which caused the damn thing to go out under recoil.  Usually right in the middle of a string of fire at a formal class.  You had to find a damn o-ring that would tighten shit up in there.  Shades of earlier EOTechs.  Kinda find it strange that a high-end deal like Wilcox would have this issue.  Not throwing shade, OP, just you usually expect better from something they charge an arm and leg for.

Well, I paid like $450, so...


Either way, Wilcox says the LAM is out of warranty. They want me to send it in so that they can assess the issue, then tell me what I’ll owe em.


I really don’t think I’m gonna be sending it in.

The O-Ring is a damn good idea. I’ll probably order an assortment from Amazon.

Shove some aluminum foil in there and call it a day.

Or if you want to do it fancy, some small washers
