    Extremely disappointing, 30 rounds in.

    Not to be an ass, but I haven’t seen a lot of great reviews of Holosun. Assuming it’s the optic.

    The dot disappeared when it recoiled and didn’t come back, moving the lense around I can see a twinge of red but I’m not sure if it’s the coating or the dot, my assumption is the laser system failed but when I get home I’m going to pull the battery and see if that works.

    They’re no aimpoint or RMR but the last long term studies I looked at showed them having a higher round count between failure than the delta point pro.

    Hmmm... yeah wasn’t a dig on you or anything. Their price would typically indicate better quality. I haven’t tried the Leopold or Vortex red dots of that style, but I’ve used both extensively and have always had good luck. Sucks having just got the slide done for sure though!

    I didn’t take it that way :thumbsup:
    I almost went with one of the Vortex offerings but the Holosun having the same footprint as the RMR and I already have a Holosun that I really like on my SBR.

    That makes sense.

    That’s actually good to know. I have pretty much all Vortex for my spotting scopes, scopes and red dots. I’ll have to keep them in mind in the future.

    Not sure, never had to use it but I’m sure they’ll make it right.

    Started the warranty process this morning, pretty quick and easy but one big recommendation, Holosun needs to have a mobile version of their website because the desktop version on my iPhone 8+ was almost impossible to use.

    Trust me, you’ll know.

    On a side note, I haven’t received a call or email from registering my sight or submitting a warranty claim but I may have fat fingered the email address, I’ll try resubmitting the warranty claim from a desktop this evening.

    This was funny though, apparently Holosun doesn’t read the caption of posts they’re tagged in.

    The good: they emailed back
    They supplied a return shipping label

    The “meh”: I don’t like that they don’t send a confirmation email of either registering your product or submitting a warranty claim.

    I also think 2 days from submission to hearing from them is less than ideal.

    Damn, that blows. Good to hear they're gonna make it right. I'm following this pretty closely, I have a brimming idea on a P09 with a 507c and If they make it right I'll be sold on it.

    Side note: Does anybody here do form 1 suppressors? I'm working on a move to a more friendly state, and will probably be picking up some equipment in the near future to do some, but have no idea on where to start WRT lathes/mills/drill presses.

    Hey, so I just wanted to add that I just received a 510C and already have issues with it. I just put it on and no matter what I do I see four descending circles. Kinda disappointed since I just got it.

    I can't seem to get a picture of it, but the sight that you see here is printed four times going down and left from the center.

    well that's very unfortunate.
    Are you running other red dots? The only reason I ask is my Astigmatism messes with the dots on my guns and it's odd that you can see it but not get a picture of it happening.

    *hopefully gonna make it right* I just printed off the shipping label and will return it Monday when I'm at lunch, hopefully I'll hear something good back.

    I've used a Vortex spitfire before and never had a problem with it. I have pretty good vision so I'm confident in saying that's not what I think is the issue. I honestly didn't try very hard to get a picture of it so I can try that tomorrow.
