anyone else have this problem?

You can literally back out the entire adjustment screw and there is no change at all to point of impact. Kinda pissed right now, esp if I have to pay for shipping to get warranty work done.

Have you loosened the lock screws on the back of the sight?

This is common to many/most optics. When rezeroing my ACOG, knocking on the housing hard with my knuckles to "set" the scope adjustments is often necesary as well as reccomended by trijicon.

Eta:c figure these devices are recoil hardened, banging on them lightly won't hurt them.

If you bought it from us, and it's been less than 30 days, by all means take advantage of our return/exchange policy. I thought you might benefit from giving it a good smack, and avoid return/exchange/warranty.

The same technique worked on my EOTech 512 that had not been adjusted for 5 or 6 years...

What part of TN are you in? My family is from east central TN.

From Memphis area but live most of the time up near DC. I'll give it some solid taps and see what happens. Thanks for the advice.

Had the same issue with a Pride Fowler mini dot (very similar sight, except it doesn't require removal to replace the battery) and I tapped it with a small screwdriver a couple times and it popped free and could then be adjusted.

I've seen it happen on scopes and dots before when someone maxes out an adjustment and it hangs up.
