Case of the disappearing dot...
on March 16, 2015
I have had many a TRS-25 mounted on AKMs and ARs. All except two were top notch. One of those two, I purchased at Walmart, had the emitter located at 6 o'clock and had white "Bushnell" lettering on the side. The other bad apple I bought recently, from Amazon. It too had the emitter at 6, and white lettering (opposed to Bushnell's previous Coyote colored lettering). There are two types of TRS-25. The two I just mentioned, and the TRS-25 with the emitter at 4:30, with the classic Bushnell brown font color. THOSE are the ones I never had a problem with. Not these newest runs.
With my most recent order, the dot would disappear well before reaching the edge of the glass housing upon looking through the glass and tilting the field of view up (moving the red dot toward the top of field of view). This is unacceptable. Returned it.
Funny story though, I went ahead and, with the refunded money, bought a Primary MD-FBGII from Amazon as well, that one felt much nicer, but had a crazy amount of dot flare. So returned that as well. I'll likely buy another MD-FBGII directly from Primary Arms and in the notes have them QC it before it gets packed up.
If you check out various Youtube videos of the TRS-25 and it's problems, you can see most of the problem units have the 6 o'clock emitter with white lettering. Here's just one example (not my video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtPpZ2kvQP8
