about 2 months ago i purchased an eotech 551 rev f.
ive bought it to the range about 5 times, it was having probs holding zero, and ive had it pop off the rail a few times in handling my weapon, to say the least, i was not impressed.
tonight it popped off again .
I checked the dovetails on the eotech underside and discovered that the dovetail on the moving locking bar was upside down.
if it was flipped around, the dovetail would be in the correct position to lock onto the rail.
the protective hood needs to be removed in order for the locking bar to be removed and flipped over.
The warranty states that if the torx bolts are removed, the warranty is void. It looks like im sending this back to eotech soon.
anyone else ever discover the dovetail locking bar installed incorrectly?
Sorry to hear that. There's always a few lemons in the batch, no matter how good the things are supposed to be. I'm sure EOTech will fix it up for you, however.
To answer your other question, my EOTech works like a charm.
LOL...at least yours came with the torx bolts. Mine was missing both on one side when I got it from SWFA. SWFA passed the buck and told me to contact the manufacturer, so I did. Eotech said "okay...fine I'll ship 2 bolts out"...anyways that was a year and a half ago..still no bolts!
oh yea...dont tighten the thumbscre down very hard or it'll snap right off.
