Ice age heat wave,

Took the SBR out to stretch its legs this morning and noticed the only two settings that functioned were 11 and 12, the two brightest settings. On the way to range, I stopped by CVS to pick up a replacement battery, figuring this was the issue. Popped the new battery in and same deal, the two bright settings are the only functioning.

I guess I'll call Aimpoint on Monday to see what's what. Anyone experienced such an issue?

I have the T-2. Never an issue. I did call Aimpoint when I purchased my T-2. I purchased the unit without a mount. Bought the mount separately. Neither came with screws. OpticsPlanet wanted $8.00 per screw. I called Aimpoint and they mailed me out more than I needed. Great customer service and a human being actually answers the telephone.

I broke an Aimpoint Pro by dropping it. I mailed it to them, and they fixed it no questions asked. Good service.

A fellow member and I were out shooting his DD pistol and his T1 dial did not click nearly as positively as mine. It spun almost freely. I’m sure Aimpoint will make it right.

Communicated with Aimpoint today and they issued RMA. I'll drop this off tomorrow and follow up with their findings.

If the Micros have a weak point, it's the rheostat. I have seen a couple of them get wonky. Usually from being overtightened with the battery cover.

The closest I've come to having a problem with one of my Aimpoints was a battery contact that didn't extend to fully contact a battery terminal which caused the unit to fail to power up, but was easily fixed by me...and a Duracell battery supplied with one Aimpoint that leaked, but luckily my practice is to remove batts from electronics not in use and so the battery never leaked inside the unit...otherwise, nary a problem.

One forum member who regularly trains and participates in shooting activities and would most likely be considered a "high volume" shooter, reported several years ago about various failures he experienced with several of his Aimpoints, including at least one of his micros.

In one case he said that the Aimpoint engineers got involved and were puzzled by the number of failures he experienced across different models and units...but he also reported their excellent customer service in addressing each of the issues, and the extents they went to get either repaired or new units back into his hands.
