    They sent me to link to send it in, anything under $100 they will fix and anything over I have to authorize. Honestly, at this point I’m not going to send it in. Just going to buy a new optic.

    I have an R1 that I bought used and it failed and they fixed it. I told them that it was second hand.
    Ill buy your R1, I need one for a project.

    Received my Aimpoint back today, all is good. They fixed the issue, no charge and fixed the two stripped screws in the sight at no charge.

    Thumbs up to aimpoint.

    That's awesome. When I called last year about stripped screws in my H1, I was told they were no longer supporting the model and said I was fine with 3 screws.

    Aimpoint is still servicing H1 and other discontinued models if they're still under the 2 year warranty for LE or 10 year warranty for personal use. I inquired about that before I bought a brand new H1 a couple weeks ago.

    Bummer. Not the way I was treated. Just checked my emails. May 25 2019, I was told they were not able to do anything about stripped screw holes in the Series 1 Micro's and they recommend I go to Robar for repair.

    Actually, mine were not technically stripped....it was possibly worse. I stripped the allen head out and had to drill them to get the Larue mount off. So they actually extracted the screws that were stuck in the aimpoint.

    Same here. Same for jpmuscle

    There is a big risk buying used H/T1s. If the former owner stripped it youre SOL.

    All H1/T1/H2/T2 have the same issues. It's fixed on CompM5 and CompM5s.
