I just got my first TR21 back last week and now the other one died in less than 20 rounds. Some kinda' o-ring blew and stuck to the inside of the objective lense. I asked Trijicon CS what the heck was goin' on. Yep...I'm the exception. If I mounted an anvil on a rifle it would break. To recap:
  1. Elite 4200 loose reticle
  2. Zeiss Conquest defective from the factory
  3. Trijicon TR21 ocular bell unscrewing
  4. Trijicon TR21 blown o-ring

THIS YEAR!!!!!

Did I miss anything Ed?

Sounds like my luck too.
 
Two Trijicons (tritium not glowing) back, two Nikon buckmasters and one Intensity back for not holding zero........................
 
In 40+ years of scope use I have never had a Bushnell fail and only a couple of Leupolds (and I've had a bunch of them) fail.
 
I've had some sort of problem with almost every other brand at some point.

Everybody churns out a dud once in a while (or twice in a while).  It's how the company deals with it that really counts.  Most of the stuff that I have sent back, has been returned to me upgraded....I always talk extra nice.

I figured that - Tritium is a gas - given the chance to escape - it will.  How long did it take for them to get one that worked back to you?   I've had my worst luck with Burris and I really like a couple of their scopes.  I had a guy showing me a Fulfield II in a gun store and it fell apart while he was showing it to me raving about what a great scope it was. Fridge Smash I had a factory refurbished Nikon that needed to go back because the reticle wasnt centered  adjust it all the way up and it was over 20 in low at 100.  For some reason I have never had a fixed power scope go belly up and the Burris  1x on my Encore 45-70 pistol takes a beating. My 10x Super Sniper has been rode hard and put up wet too and is ultra reliable like my fixed power Leupolds.

All my troubles have been with variables as well.  I have used 3 fixed power scopes a lot over the years and all of them still working great.  Cannot say that with variable scopes.  I have had 2 Bushnells, 1 Leupold, 1 IOR, 1 Meopta, 2 Tasco (not surprised though) all have problems.  I always have that luck with gun gear though, whether it is barrels, receivers, triggers etc.  They seem to never work right intially or have problems quickly.

Unless you're aiming at something that counts and you need it to work right now.

Well...I got the other TR21 back from Trijicon. Just as the other one I had repaired it's fixed but... There's a grease smear inside the scope on the ocular lense. Trijicons CS position is that lighting in the repair area is the culprit. They did offer to work on it again but I declined. It's no so bad as to be obvious when sighting through the scope and I'm tired of dealing with it. Both Trijicons are back in service, at least until I use them again Loco
