I'm not sure how one is expected to know that before buying when one can buy all other manner of mil surplus items.

The claims administrator specifically said to send the site in - I called beforehand.

No, mine was a 553.

Update. After tons of calls that seemed to be to no avail, my sight showed up today via Fedex. So I may not have received a refund, but I finally have my sight back after about 3 months of calling.

It did come with a nice Eotech case with custom cut foam, so there is that.

Beats a poke in the eye and a kick in the nuts.

EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights Class Action Settlement

This is why I wonít buy mil-surp. A guy I know tried to sell me mil-surp optics from Aberdeen two and half years ago and I ran as fast as I could in the other direction.

He had thermal optics, NVGs, an Abrams Tank Commanderís laser ranging binoís that were as far as you can get from civi legal and a host of other goodies. When I left his house I was surprised to not see black suburbans sans plates waiting for me/him.

And the sad part is, I donít think he had a clue of the legal issues he was creating for himself or others. He frankly should be in jail.

How can I ensure that whatever I buy on the market used/new is not subject to the issue that led to this lawsuit. I see some great deals on used equipment but the deadline for the lawsuit has ended.

If you buy it new, it should have the new EOtech logo on it. They rebranded after they supposedly fixed their issues. The new logo is a stylized E that sort of looks like a flag to me.

I bought two of the 512s this summer when they were on sale. With the $75 per optic rebate, I think I paid $270ish - $290ish each. Unfortunately with my astigmatism, normal red dots look like garbage. So prismatic or holographic sights for me.
