I recently got my hands on the new Bushnell Big D red dot. This is a new product, and nobody has done a torture test on it. It might be thrown down stairs, chucked in the air, dropped into water, and/or strapped onto the back of my tactical chihuahua; however, I'd like to have a humorous side to this test; so what are some of the extreme, non-traditional ideas you guys would like me to do to this thing? I plan on breaking it and want to have fun in the process.

The Lil P might be more practical for that lol. Big D ain't go nowhere near my stanker. I'm actually surprised how big and heavy this scope is. It's built like a tank. I didn't want to like it, but it's kind of grown on me. It has a weird greenish hue that I don't care for, though.

Drop it in a mug of beer, then chug the beer and see if it still works.

This is great! I don't have one at the moment. I saw some dude dressed as a construction worker carrying one of these with a dildo on the end of it in San Francisco once. True story.

Why the FUCK does a/their red dot sight have a 50yd(ft?) any parallax?

gallon of milk challenge
put red dot in catch bucket

1.Take it to paint store

2.Give kid behind the counter a fiver and a zip tie.

3.Instruct kid to zip tie it to paint shaker.

4. Return in 10 minutes.

5. See if the dang thing still works.

So you purchased a $300 red dot just to have fun destroying it?
Anyway, if the point is to see how durable it is I think shock and moisture tests are the most relevant to real world use.
Submerge in a cup of water overnight. My TRS-25 survived this fine. The sawzall is a good idea.
Dropping it onto a 4x6 from 5 feet and then 10 feet would be next.
Drop it onto concrete from 5 feet and then ten feet if it survives the 4x6. If it survives a ten foot drop onto concrete I'll say it is impressive.

Read the Unscientific Magazine Test and adapt some of those ideas for an optic. Like using interesting cleaners.

Made my day. I'll try to think of something unorthox which normally isn't a problem. Hard to beat Tacuahua though.

Activate optic. Coat it with a little flavor and feed it to a goat. Monitor goat. Sleep with goat? "Aim" for dot.

In theory, sounds logical, but what if goat's iron stomach digests and gives it laser beam eyes? Can't take that risk.

I acquired the dot free of charge via inability to return it due to some hazardous material restriction.

Bury it in a quart of ice cream for a week.
Link Posted: 11/8/2018 7:32:48 PM EST
For a serious side, you should strap it to a .308 AR, and see if it lasts. I have seen lesser chicom RDS not be able to take the pounding.

I do like the paint shaker device test. No need beating the dog crap out of it. If it could be contained in a sealed plastic something with water, then inserted to the paint can and shaken, that'd be pretty interesting.

What's a Sawzaw? Is that just a retard's way of proving they don't know how to say the word Sawzall?

OP, toss it in a portashitter.

Turn on, freeze in a block of ice. (ziplock bag of water in a deep freezer). Leave for a few days. Then drop into pot of boiling water for a few hours. Then back into ice water. Extreme temperature swings.

I know where there's a nasty one that sits out in the sun. Prob is fishing it out and handling a hazmat scope. How about I freeze it in peanut butter and see if it passes the chihuahua lick challenge?

Boiling water submersion
Baseball bat see how far you can hit it off a T-ball tee
Put on top of a drone take it up high in the air and tip the drone to drop it
Shoot a 50BMG round by it do not hit it just by it.....
Put in a jello mold
Liquid Nitrogen submersion

Fuck I wish I had a drone!!! Might get me arrested in CA, though -- a red dot on a drone classifies it as an "assault chopper."

Water submersion is lame. Submerge in beer.

Drop test is lame. Toss down the driveway, in memory of Napoleon_Tannerite.

You can also lend it to my six year old son. I love him, but I'm convinced he could break a bowling ball with a pillow.
Link Posted: 11/9/2018 8:35:24 PM EST
How about a realistic test?

Put it on a rifle, zero it, and then set the rifle against a wall on a hard surface and tip it over 5 or 10 times and see if it retains zero.

Put it in the back of a truck and haul ass up and down a gravel road and see if it retains zero.

Leave it out in the rain for 5 hours and see if it stays dry inside.

Dunk it for a few minutes and see if it stays dry inside.
