    I had a TRS-25 do the same thing. On further inspection of it, I found the emitter was in a different location then my other 2. So I figured it was a fake.

    I replaced the sketchy Bushnell with a Sightmark Wolverine. So far it's been a great little sight. I'd get another one.

    Bushnell did change their emitter location on the official product. Was the battery compartment a different design?

    I don't remember. I gave that one away to someone that knew it was hinky.

    I think the easier way to spot the different generations of the TRS-25 is "gold logo vs. white logo".

    The gold ones were the first ones. The emitters have been in at least three different locations on the white logo'd ones, tho.

    I didn't know they kept moving them around, LOL. Only knew about the difference between gold and white.

    Apparently some people complained that it interfered with co-witnessed sights, but I don't really see that as a problem.

    These things are so cheap already why risk buying from anyone but a legit dealer? Brownells has then sub 100.00. Or jumping to primary arms, vortex, or even the new Sig dots?
