Am I stupid to keep an Eotech 512 on my turtle buster 10/22?  





I like the reticle, it's not a battle rifle, it still works....but I could easily roll those bucks toward another RDS or 2 from Primary Arms.  





Thoughts? Anyone else keeping theirs?

I'm keeping my EXPS2. I prefer it much more than my aimpoint. I'm not a delta couch warrior so if my zero shifts a bit in sub zero cold weather, who cares, bc I probably won't be out at the range with it anyways.

Turtle buster, lol.

If you like it and it works, keep it. I still use aluminum mags with green followers and somehow have not burst into flames yet.

Send it back and buy a brand new one with refund

There are dozens of optics at a 1/5 of the price that will perform that task.  



I'd trade in an optic in which the manufacturer admitted has a design flaw, and does not meet the specs in which they were sold and is offering a refund based on that, and buy a cheaper optic.



I'd then spend the rest of the money on pizza.  Cause I love pizza.

I don't plan on keeping it in my deep freezer then going out on a 95'F humid day in FL to go shooting. The gun safe is 75'F right now, my car in the garage gets about 85'F at most. Finally at the range at 95'F under shade.

Are they all recalled?  Or just certain ones?

Sure why not, you know it's limitations, if it works for you then keep it.

All. Though not recalled by my understanding, just that they have offered to refund anyone who chooses to send their optic back.

You're overpaying for what you're getting in my opinion. Buy something cheaper.

Same, I like mine. I have a bigger issue with it fogging up than zero shift.  I'll use it in moderate to hot temps, and another rig when it's freezing or below...

It was on my main gun. I moved it to my 15-22.
It makes the 15-22 3x more fun.

I have the RMA approved but can't decide what to do.
I like the FOV sooo much better than any red dot

Some kept their Ford Pinto too.



A guy here drove one around with a target painted on the back.

Keeping both of mine too. Can't beat that reticle and sight picture, IMO. This H1 I have sucks so bad I put it on an AK.

When they are giving full refunds you can buy 2-3 knockoffs that can shift zero and leak just as well.
Link Posted: 2/25/2016 8:58:21 PM EDT
I'd send it back for a refund and then use the money to buy a new one after they solve the problem.  Buy a PA RDS to use till then if you don't have anything else.

I kept my three.  I like way the holographic reticle makes my ARs seem all futuristic.

I'm keeping my 517.



It has worked fine since the day I bought it almost ten years ago, I see no reason to get rid of it.

Why keep an optic that the manufacturer has said WILL fail?

They did NOT say WILL fail.

Also, they found those issues under Extreme temperature.

I guess because in the ten years I've owned mine it has performed just fine for me.




I don't operate in freezing conditions nor do I operate in temperatures over 90 - I guess I'm not a "tier one" operator.

In ten years I've never had a battery fail me, nor has my ability to hit what I'm aiming at been affected.

I like the sight so I'm keeping it.

If it ever does fail I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Link Posted: 2/25/2016 9:21:11 PM EDT
Probably going to keep mine, because it's just a casual range toy, and I'm not a Delta operator or a SEAL.
