Well I guess I get to test out Trijicons warranty my 2 year old Patrol 100 battery housing pulled out and small wire that connects battery housing broke

Not a major issue small things can happen like this. I love this Patrol use it all the time going to suck not having it while it’s off to be repaired.

Has any one returned a IRD unit there? How was the service and repair time?

My experience with them was good with a quick turnaround.

My experience with the warranty was much better AFTER trijicon took over . Side note, that’s something I’ve never heard of happening. Was there something threaded that broke off inside? Of did the whole sleeve just come out with the battery? Looks like it’s a pressed fitting, but I can’t see how you could ground the unit with a pressed bushing.....

It appears to slide press fit and epoxy also.

There is a red small wire that attached at back which broke guess when it twisted after being loose. It came loose when I was removing cap to replace battery nothing out of normal I figure it was just a wear and tear thing.

I’ve owned MK I’s, MK II’s, now MK III,Reaper and Patrol this is my first issue I had to return for as these Trijicon/IRD systems are work horses. That said anything man made can have a issue.

Also I like the sound of better service after the buy out ;)

I've had my IRD mark 2 scope in to trijicon twice for that exact same thing.

About a four week door to door transaction.

Incidentally, I wish the outer battery compartment were threaded to allow an oversized battery cap to screw down onto the outside of the housing so that it'll hold that somebitch in there.
