View Full Version : What is wrong with my EOTech?
One of the key selling points of the EOTech for me was the fact that the retical will stay in the same position on the target, no matter what angle you look through the lens from. If I put my rifle on shooting bags, and look through the EOTech at different angles the reticle moves all over the place around the target. I dont understand why it is like this. By the way it is a 512.
What is moving is you. Don't fret none.
It sounds like nothing is wrong with your Eotech all....
The concept is that wherever the dot is located, regardless of what angle you are looking thru the sight at, if you can see it, that is where the bullet will impact.
Im not sure what you were expecting, but I hope this clarifies things for you a bit.
Mhanna, you'd see the same thing on an Aimpoint under the same circumstances. I'm relatively new to using RDSs, been playing around with a few after having used nothing but magnified optics (ACOG RCO and similar) for a long time, so I'm seeing some of the same stuff you are.
As nickdrack said, so long as you've properly zeroed:
Phase One: just lay the dot on the desired aimpoint,
Phase Two: press your round(s)
Phase Three: PROFIT!!
The reality is no optic is truly parallax free. This include RDSs that are listed as 1x. There is a "window" in which you can move within and the parallax will not be obvious or negligible. But once you look outside of that window it would be more of a problem.
Basically the further away from the center you view these optics, the worse the parallax will be.
