So yes, be sure it is tight before firing, mission, duty,etc.



Tighten your thumb screw to hand tight, and take a quarter and give the screw a nice quarter turn. it will secure the sight on your flat top for good.

What thumb screw? All I have is the one hex-head nut. The manual says there is a "retainer"
screw. I can't find any screw that doesn't adjust POA or involve assembly/disassembly. Just the hex-head nut.

In my EOTech box was a hex-wrench and hex-head was installed, but in plastic holder, (inside box, thing EO was setting in) there was the screw which SMGLee was refering too. Simply removed hex-head and replaced w/ thumb-screw. Ya didn't get one?? Mike

It has happened, the thumb screw is toss out along with the empty box. you can contact EOTech to get another thumb screw. Good luck.

[b]Thanks guys, [red]I found it[/red]!!![/b] Is the idea behind the thumbscrew to make it easier to remove if damaged during a firefight and allow (better) use of irons? Thanks again! [beer] TS

It may help with rapid discard but it's really just to allow you to mount/remove with a nickel (instead of a wrench).
