Picked up a used VX-6 3-18x50 duplex firedot a couple days ago. Didn't notice anything wrong in the daylight with the dot. Carried it out about dark to see how she would do in adverse lighting and discover the red dot is distorted and irregular. Kinda looks a little hollow in the middle and tiny little splatter marks on the edges. Definitely not perfectly round like a trijicon. Carry it back and the gunsmith pulls out a brand new one and it's worse than mine. I tell him it is not for me. Don't want any part of a premium scope with a botched reticle. I have owned both the Meopta and Trijicon with illuminated reticles and never seen anything but a pure 360 degree dot in those. Have any you guys seen or heard of what I observed in Leupold Firedot ?

Guess I just stumbled up a couple of flukes. Lucky me. Lol.

Send it back and see how the "wonderful" Leupy repair / guarantee works out.

I just checked mine again and it's not a PERFECT orb, but it's nothing like you described.

As stated, I'd let Leupold take a gander at it.
