Hey everyone, I managed to finally grab the last 6-24x50 ffp mrad from swfa for my rifle which is scheduled to be completed on the 9th. I have a course scheduled for the 2nd of February so I'm in a dilemma. I need to get the scope on the rifle, zeroed and figure out some loads before the course. The illuminator on my scope is not working, I checked the FAQ and no, I am checking it at 8, 9 and 10 intensities. The reticule is only illuminated between the off and on positions, so a bump turns it off, now after trying that for a few times it doesn't work at all, this confirms that it is not the battery that is the issue. Are there any quick fixes for this? I have it packed to go back to Vortex tomorrow if worse comes to worse and I am not worried whatsoever that I will have a good Vortex optic in my hands, I just am disappointed no one QC'd this. I already waited weeks for one to become available, only having tasted the lovely fruits of this scope to have to send it back.
Otherwise this thing is beautiful, the nicest scope I've ever laid hands on, about 10x Better than the standard viper series. It's so nice I don't want to send it back.
Do I need an RMA number? Also do I pay the shipping to Vortex?
