EOTech Update – The Checks Are In The Mail

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Generally, when you hear “The check is in the mail” it’s about as reliable as “it’s only a cold sore” or “just the tip.” But this time, it’s true. Earlier today, those who sent in the earliest of the EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights for refund came home to an envelope containing a check. Who has received theirs?


Thanks NH!

EOTech Refund Update

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

We’ve received similar reports from multiple sources so we feel comfortable sharing this info regarding refunds for EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights.

The refunds will be in the form of a check, processing has been outsourced due to so many returns, and the checks will be sent out within the next two weeks.  Also, there should be a phone number to deal specifically with return issues.  Once we have it, we’ll share it.  

SHOT Show – EOTech

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

We’ll be blunt: for obvious reasons, we didn’t know what EOTech’s presence was going to be at this year’s SHOT; we partially wondered if they would even show up. However, business must continue, and it seems that’s no exception for the EOTech brand. This year, they forgoed any additions to their line of Holographic sights, and instead displayed a new line of Vudu Precision Rifle Scopes.


The Vudu scopes come in multiple magnifications and reticle configurations, however the various models, which come in 1-6x, 2.5-10x, and 3.5-18x magnifications, do share virtually the same universal features.


The Vudu line scopes feature single-piece aircraft-grade aluminum construction, and are water, fog, and shock-resistant, with a hard anodized finish. Additional construction features include tactical-style turrets, laser-etched travel indicators, push-button illumination controls, and a single construction eyepiece. Optical features include XC high-density, low-dispersion glass, first focal plane reticle, glass-etched reticle, and illuminated reticle.


EOTech Refund Update

Friday, January 15th, 2016

We got an update from a reader on the status of his EOTech refund.  In fact, several readers have received the same email. Many have complained that L-3 Communications has remained mum after they returned their sights so this is a good sign.  He says that he shipped his optic back to EOTech on December 9th.  However, we still have no reports of anyone actually receiving a refund but please notice that the email says “check” which denotes an actual refund and not a gift certificate or store credit as many have claimed online.  


EOTech Sight Returns Overwhelming US Postal Service

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Received this anecdote regarding the return of EOTech sights for refunds.  

Had an interesting conversation with the head of the Liberty St. postal office in Ann Arbor, MI today. That office is responsible for handling all the mail going to EOtech returns in Ann Arbor, MI. I sent my EXPS2-0 in for a refund that was approved and it wasn’t showing as delivered yet, and was supposed to get there on Dec 8.
Today the guy at that office called me and apologized for not being able to locate it. They believe it was delivered but the carrier forgot to scan it because of the volume of packages being sent there. 

Apparently they are getting 2 USPS truck loads a day in volume. Enough that USPS had asked EOtech to send a truck to the USPS office to come get all the packages.

This is for their Returns Dept. There are that many going back there.

L3 Communications EOTech Issuing Refunds For Holographic Weapon Sights

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

Last month, L-3 Communications was sued by the US Government in Federal Court for fraud regarding performance of their line of EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights. The same day, L-3 settled with the US Government for $25.6 Million. This suit comes on the heels of a USSOCOM Safety Of Use Message for the sights because of Point of Impact shifts in extreme temperatures as well as other performance issues.

Naturally, some consumers have decided to stop using their sights due to concerns raised in the SOUM and ensuing court case. Several EOTech Holographic Weapon Sight owners have contacted EOTEch and requested refunds. So far, EOTech has reportedly been very positive and honored all of the requests.

EOTech is reportedly refunding the purchase price plus $15 Shipping and Handling. If you are interested in returning your sight, we suggest you proceed to www.eotechinc.com/raform.


Once the request is approved, you should receive a message like the one below.

Since I have been asked, I own sights and will not be returning them.  Also, I’d like to thank Larry Vickers for alerting me to this.
