sorry about all the noob questions? but the aimpoint i have, i'm seeing three dots. there are small dots in the lens, one in the front and one in rear and one bright dot(the main dot). if i line up all three dots, its just one dot. is this normal? do i just have it on tooo bright ? i notice the brighter i set it, the brighter those little dots are in the lens. does your aimpoint do this or is it just mine.

Do you have astigmatism by chance?

maybe, i never been diagnosed with it. but i had my brother look at it and he sees the reflection of the dot in the lens also.

Mine works beautifully with both eyes open...

if by some chance I close an eye and look through it like a rifle scope I get a very distorted "dot" But I dont remember seeing 3 dots.....

I have the same think occur when I am in a dark room and I turn the setting to the brightest and it seems to have three dots in the sight. Were you outside or inside when you did this?

yeah i was inside, it was dark cause baby was sleeping. i think that might have been the problem, dark room bright setting. i was just fingerfucking my new toy cause i was exited, couldn't wait till next day.

Lick your eyeballs before you use the Aimpoint and the offending dots will go away.

it might be the internal beam bouncing from the front to the rear, lower your brightness at dark especially, just my .02.

Nope, didn't work.

You have an astigmatism. Try an Aimpoint Comp ML2 or M2, I bet you'll only see one dot.

If he can do that he won't have time to worry about the dots 'cause womenz will be lined up at his door.

If you turn down the setting to a dimmer dot does it still occur? Most red dots I've seen will give ghost reflections at high settings in low light.
Aimpoint addresses the issue in their manual of the dot not looking perfectly round as well.
Turn the scope as you watch the dot, does the distortion move as you spin the scope or does it stay in the same orientation. If the distortion does not follow the rotation it is a function of your vision.
Sorry if that's info overload. h.gif
