Have a customer that bought 2 pcs of this sight from us, he claims that both sights have the reticle "moving" inside the scope when the ocular part is being adjusted. None of the sights can be "sighted in" correctly and both have huge 20 inches variation between shots when shooting at a target. We have sold some of these scopes before but never had any problems like this, comments appreciated.

Assuming it is not user or equipment error, the units are defective. They need to be sent to ATN for repair or replacement. Highly unusual. They are very good unit and we don't have issues with them.

Thanks for answer, I just talked to the customer of mine again. It seems that the reticle is moving inside the tube when the ocular is being adjusted, since the ocular part is very loosely set it makes the ocular move slightly between shots..

Is this a problem you recognize? He bought 2 scopes from us and both will be returned, I also have another customer describing the same problem, so there's a total of 3 "defective" scopes. Does ATN has a representative that can make a comment regarding this?

ATN Rep,

This problem is very unusual, we sell hundreds of the MK390s and what you are describing is very odd. If the operator was trying to adjust the rear diopter and for some reason over twisted one way or the other causing the rear diopter to strip off the eyepiece this may cause the issue, but again very strange and highly unusual. Please contact us for an RMA# and assistance.

"Santa" just brought me a mk390! Took it to the range yesterday to site it in.
At 100 yards I couldn't get on the paper so I brought it in to 75yds.
It was hitting in the top left corner of the target frame. I dialed it down and right to
Where it was consistently hitting about and inch and 1/4 above center.
Problem is, I turned the scope off and went to repaste my
target, turned the scope back on, shot, only to find it was up/left consistently
Each time I cycled the power off and back on.
I called ATN and they were puzzled so I told them I would try again this
weekend and call them back to see if I got the same results. If so
Linda in customer service said thy would take care of it.
I have it mounted on a Bushmaster .223.
