EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights Class Action Settlement

It looks like even if you got a full refund you are still eligible for a $22.50 voucher that can be used toward the purchase of a new EOTech product.

Note: I got the settlement postcards in the mail today.

I never knew there was a problem with EOTech sights. I have one and I don't think I have any adverse issues with it. Are all EOTech sights flawed as per the class action lawsuit specific manufactured dates?

I saw problems with the optics for years, but most owners don't care because they are vested in them.

I got one too. Settlements providing coupons that can only be used to buy from a vendor that sold substandard products (resulting in a settlement) are major bs.

Did you guys actually have drift issues with your EOTech sights?

The specifications and QC testing are proven fraudulent and fabricated. The sights fail miserably in repeatable scenarios.

Yes. And I personally know folks at a LE agency who encountered up to 16" of unpredictable offset in repeatable real-world scenarios during training exercises, to the point that the sights were unusable and dangerous. Their Aimpoint-equipped rigs had no such problems.

Same experiences here. Guys would bend over backwards blaming the weapon, and in the end, after much tail chasing, they would switch to another brand optic and problems vanished.

My friend Irv tells his team's experiences with them. You can tell who owns them by the face they make when he tells the story.

The drift issues were just one of many. The adjustments were often inaccurate, and they would drain batteries rapidly. Some just gave out and would not turn on.

Can't leave them on like other quality electronic optics either.

Yes but it took me a long time to notice it. It just happened to be around the same temperature when I was at the range in the summer. Then I went to Delmarva in the winter and the sights were off by about 4 to 6 inches at 50 yards. I chalked it up to bumping the rifle around during transport or using different ammo. I adjusted the sight and had no issues the rest of the day. Then I went back to the range on a warm day and the sight was off by 4 to 6 inches again. I still didn't put two and two together until I read online that Eotechs were having thermal drift issues.

Very interesting. Thanks to all of your responses. It seems I still have a window available until May 23rd to return the sight for a refund as well, according to the class action lawsuit.

I know that EOTech's voluntary refund program ended in March, but it appears that the lawyer's have extended it until 23 May, as per how I am understanding the verbiage.

Not sure.

I know of several people who claimed they sent them in with no receipt and they were reimbursed.

You don't need a receipt but it can delay the process and you might get a reduced "average" amount. If the purchase is on a credit card statement, that's usually good enough.

I received a full retail price refund plus shipping reimbursement for all of my Eotechs with no receipts.

Yes and on 3 different optics. I requested and received refunds on all 3 units.

Look at the settlement forms, you have 3 options to choose from. If you don't have a receipt, they list MSRP value for year and model that they will refund back to you.

I did not have receipts for any of mine and received full new market price.

The only thing they wouldn't refund me for is a 3X multiplier that I purchased and then sold separately.
