Alas, all good things (that admittedly were borne of bad things) must come to an end. L3 Corporation’s EOTech division has reached a settlement agreement with the filed class-action lawsuit, which will end EOTech’s open refund offer for its fielded holographic weapon sights manufactured from January 5th to November 1st, 2016.
The settlement brings about a close to a legal and PR saga that EOTech will feel the repercussions from for years to come. In short, EOTech hid the fact that its weapons shifted zero between large shifts in ambient temperature from the US Government and its commercial customers. While all optics experience this shift to some degree, EOTech’s direct efforts to conceal this earned it the ire of the Government which ultimately settled with EOTech in short order. The class-action settlement will likewise likely end the issues with the commercial market.
In short, the settlement provides the EOTech will provide to its customers a full refund to the MSRP of the given product or for someone who already returned and received a refund, they will receive a $22.50 voucher for the purchase of a new EOTech product. in detail:
