    So I bought the Primary Arms RD last week and today at the range I zeroed my irons and then co witnessed the dot. The I broke a three round set and the dot just jumped up and to the right. I repeated the process 2-3 more times with similar results. Them I just tapped the sight with my hand and it moved off target. I sent a email to PA's website. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Similar, but not the same. Mine wouldn't adjust. Came in high to the left, and abso-freaking-lutely refused to move. Sent an email, and was thoroughly impressed with customer service. New one is on its way, with a return label for the bad one.
    I think they got a batch of lemons.

    Yep. I'm actually sitting here waiting on my new RDS.

    Just hope they found the bad batch and that the replacement works.

    I won't know for sure until tomorrow when I test it out. If it has the same problem, then I am calling them again.

    So I just tried out my original on a UTG Riser I bought for my scope and the dot didn't flinch at all so I think it has to be the cheap mount I put it on. It is a knock off of the KAC T1 mount. It breaks down into 4 parts, a top and bottom with 2 plastic spacers to skiers the height. I am leaving the country for 2 weeks so I can't do anything until I get back, but I think the Larue is the one I will try when I get back and I will get the UTG Riser also. The Daniel Defence is cool to. Let me know what happens.
    Out

    I think that the mount looks cool but it doesn't matter if it can't hold zero.

    Just did a little tweaking with it on the bench, and it adjusts well, and doesn't seem to have any problems whatsoever. Safe to assume I got a lemon, and this one will work.

    So I've got a UTG Riser on the way and I'm bidding on a LaRue which I think will be the best for returning to zero. Any experience with other mounts out there?
