    Eotech issue

    I have an Eotech EXPS2 and the reticle is dim when in the center of the glass. Everywhere else it is very bright. I also notice lines that look like microchip channels on the edges of the glass. Haven't seen this issue described on the Google. Anyone know what's up? It's out of warranty unfortunately as I've had it for 8 years. Back then it was only a 2 year warranty

    Usually when an Eotech begins to dim it's due to a loss of nitrogen. Warranty or not, Eotech usually fixes that problem for no charge...shipping only. I recently had an 8 year old OPMOD (Optics Planet version) which is an EXPS3 without night vision accommodation. I emailed Eotech about it and they promptly replied and offered to fix it for free. But Optics Planet replied shortly thereafter and agreed to replace it with a brand new unit (OPMOD has a lifetime warranty).

    I had an Eotech I actually bought second hand that was dim, losing reticle around edges, and the buttons peeling off. Eotech fixed it free of charge no questions asked, put a new hood on it, and a new battery compartment. Great customer service. I still sold it when I got it back because of the issues it had.

    I sent one in for the nitrogen issue before - they charged either $50 or $75 to fix it. So, I don't know that it gets fixed for free

    So they gave me an RMA and I sent it in. They haven't asked for money yet

    Just an update. Eotech sent me back my HWS with all the issues fixed. Even got a free C123 battery with it The only thing I had to pay for was shipping it to them.

    Eotech gets a bad rep but people should just have an open mind...
