Finally got to shoot my RMRed 19.  The first few shots were fine, then I noticed the RMR kind of flashed during the shots, and now it is like a big blur.  What would cause this?  I changed batteries, and it it still the same.

Thanks

ETA:  Its not my eyes, because my Burris FF3 looks fine, and the RMR looked fine until I ran rounds through it

Battery contacts probably. Not sure if your using sealing plate but it helps. I use sealing plate wrapped in kapton tape and it works for the three i own. I will admit my first one had to get sent to trijicon and since it's back it's worked flawless after like 3k rounds. There's a company that sells a sealing plate that pushes the battery further up into optic to make better contact.

Mine turned into a big blurry blob too. It was replaced by trijicon. Try cleaning the emitter and glass. If it's still a blurry blob i would give trijicon a call.

I just ordered Trijicon's Type 2 RMR's. They are supposed to have hardened electronics to take the beating from pistol slide installations. Serial numbers begin in the 400,000 range.

I emailed Trijicon.  Just waiting to hear back

Piece of electrical tape on the bottom of the battery

And bend the side battery contact. (Good info on this in the Roland Special thread)

I don't think he's experiencing the flicker issue some of us have seen... it sounds like an emitter issue that Trijicon will need to remedy for him.

That is correct.  I have a Battle Werx anti flicker plate installed.  The dot is just a big starburst now.  I received an RMA from Trijicon, so I am sending it back.
