    Last nights shooting experience with the Ncstars (2 on ARs) was less than a total waste of time. Finally had to get the night scope out and put the Ncstars away before I did a foot stomping dance on both of them.
    Before sunset checked the zero on both and had to adjust one slightly and the other one like it had never been zeroed. One of the lasers was 4 ft low and to the right from the cross-hairs. Got the rounds on paper and target then left to pop Jack Rabbits. First shot laser blinked out and could "only" be turned back on by cycling the reticle knob. This happened 4 times. Put the gun up and got the other AR scope gun combo. Zero was off with scope and had same problem with laser. Up to this point I had not had any problems with the scopes other than the mounting screw on the quick disconnect coming lose. Both Scopes have been removed from the guns and shall be placed either in a box for return to Ncstar or given to a 4 year old girl and a 6 year old boy to play with/destroy..:fire:

    I learned my lesson like you... I laugh at anything with ncstar on it now knowing how much trouble I have had with the two products I bought, the dust cover rail mount for the AK and a cheasy scope for an AR, I know hove an Eotech on the AR and I just use the irons for the AK.

    Update!!!! Spoke with Ncstar a Mr. Rich Thomas in tec support. We discussed the scopes and my problems; he has one on his AR and was quite clear the scope was made for ARs. He was very helpful and both my scopes have been sent back in to Ncstar. The laser can be stopped from drift if set screws are removed and a drop of loctite is applied; not normal but can happen. He zeroes in his Ar at 25 yards with a setting of 300 on the scope and then fine tunes at his normal shooting range which for him is usually around 150 yards. I had sent an email to Ncstar early this morning before I called and then when I called Ncstar at 10am CDT I was transferred to Rich. I introduced myself and his reply was he had just sent me an email...He was well informed on the product and they are replacing both my scopes at no charge. When I receive the scopes I will try once again...We will see...company support to me was very responsive and helpful but I did not go in guns blazing!
