DIY Sub Zero Eotech Test

David of Very Traumatic sent this to us. He decided to test the Eotech recall on his own. He shot his AR with an Eotech and then submerged the Eotech in dry ice to get the Eotech cold enough and test if there is a shift.

Cut to the chase, there is POI shift. David does talk about the variables such as removing the optic and remounting as well as the glass fogging up.

One aspect I am curious to know is what happens to the rifle when frozen. Will temperature affect POI of the rifle as well?

    The best part of any Eotech article is the comments... Everyone is trying to explain why this isn't a big deal, or how they have always been an Aimpoint fan.

    The truth is that most users wouldn't have known that the product was faulty is 10 lifetimes of shooting. I own an Eotech and I have shot some excellent groups with it. Now that I know that there is a problem with the optic in extreme scenarios, I will be sending it back and purchasing a different optic.

    The End.

      @sliversimpson Test your specific optic. Find out if it actually affects you. Then use empirical data if it presents itself to request a refund, or keep using it if it works out after all.
