I have my eotech 512 zeroed on my AR15, it is mounted in rail slot T-12. If i were to move it forward about 2 slots to T-13 or T-14 would it lose zero or not be hitting the exact same as it was? Any help is appreciated

Most likely it will be off by a bit. You need to rezero any time you change the position of an optic.

What C-Grunt said.

It will probably be closer than if you took a new one out of the box and put it in the new position, but will need re-zeroing or at least checking zero.

It will more than likely need a couple of clicks adjustment. I had to adjust mine 3/4" at 100 yards after moving mine forwards a couple of slots to make room for a magnifier.

I take my Eo-Tech off my AR and switch it out for a scope occasionally and it zeroes if I put it in the exact position.

it will not be the exact same poa/poi as before, maybe so little that you could hardly tell, however if i missed it i would still re zero it.

How much it will be off will depend on how warped or not straight your upper receiver is. They are have variances, some more than other. I have a Daniel Defense upper on one of my builds and I can move the scope at will with no appreciable change in the POI. I don't know if all DD uppers are like this or if I just got lucky.

I also have a Rock River upper and if I change the position of the scope, the POI will be off by about an inch. I guess it varies.
