If used, they might charge you a few bucks to repair it! *But for no more than the unit costs I would get an estimate from them when you send it in before I authorized the start of the repair.

well I have not actually sandbaged the weapon! I use my bipod when I sighted in the scope. But could not seem to get the red dot sighted in!

So the RDS mounts on a rail on top of the scope? Whatever, that looks real flimsy, I bet it can flex enough to affect the RDS zero. Lose the scope and try the RDS by itself on top for a test.

Plus it's low priced stuff which usually gives you headaches. Which might be part of the the answer to the question in your signature! "(Why does this always happen to me?")

Well Quentin I cant knock the scope. It holds zero well and I have heard good things from other people who also use this scope. I have taken mine on and off several times and she is still zeroed so I cant complain. If I cant get the red dot to work no big deal I bought the scope cause I liked it the red dot was just an extra perk. besides I have flip up front and rear sights on the weapon as well for back up!

Are you saying you don't want to test the RDS by itself? I don't care, it's up to you but I thought you wanted to figure this out. Easy test is all I'm saying.
