Folks,
 
Today while shooting about 200rds of M855 (in a 16 deg Alberta Clipper no less!) my TA47-2 eyepiece came (mostly) unscrewed from the main body of the optic.  It shot fine all through my course of fire and I only noticed that the ocular had backed out after I had un-assed the firing line for a warmer enviorment.  It was in this warmer "weather" that I turned the ocular a half turn more to the left and the whole thing dismounted from the ACOG body.  My question is:
 
1)  Given that most optics are "purged" with some form of gas; could my TA47 now be "compromised" so to speak and I have lost the bennies of gas purging?
 
Im sure the cold played a MAJOR part in the ACOG divorcing itself of its parts as this is a brand new optic and was as tight as I had a right to expect prior to going prone at "Ice Station Zebra" .
 
Yak standing by...

Gents,
 
I called Trijicon today and I will be sending my TA47-2 back.  They think it might not have been rationed its share of thread locker during its build (OFW...I will STILL drink the Trijicon Kool-Aid!).
