    I've got a Holosight on my Remington 1100 (for run and gun) and it started acting wacky. It just turns off under recoil every once in a while. Anybody ever seen this?

    I have a BSA on my Hi-Point carbine that was doing the same thing. The problem was that the battery cover wasn't pushing the battery down into solid enough contact with the positive terminal. A quick field fix of a dime between the battery and cap fixed it. I suppose I could cut a neoprene disc out for a permanent fix (it grounds at the edge, so I can cover the back without any problem), but I haven't bothered.

    I've got a Bushnell HOLO-sight on my Colt M4 .223, so far I have not
    experienced any problems. But, in your case it sounds like our friend
    Clipper has a quick fix~! :scrutiny::D
