    So, I contacted or text directly today and told him the issue I was having. The customer service representative email me back and said that his glare is normal due to the reflection of the intense light. Just to doublecheck, the people who checked their dots did you check it with the intensity all the way up and in a dimly lit room? I have a feeling they won't take it back because they will see that there is nothing wrong with it.

    We have two here and I just checked both of them. They both have that ring, but only if you turn it waaaaaaaay up for the environment its in. Up to the level of just using it wrong.

    Turn down the intensity and use your red dot properly and you won't have this problem.

    Assuming the circle remains at all settings, will PSA take a return? I'd tell 'em you thought you were buying a red dot, not a dot within a very distracting circle.

    The rep is right. The optic is fine. I have an Aimpoint T1 that does the same thing on max brightness.

    Turn the damn thing down. There is absolutely no need for anything near full brightness, unless you are fighting on the sun.

    That would be a short battle :P
    Why is it that when some robots are left in darkness they will seek out the light?

    I checked my optic in my office with the lights out. I got the ring only when I maxed the brightness to the max, but it was a thinner ring than yours, but it did show up. When I turned the lights on, it went away. I never saw it before, but never set it that high previously.
