The other thread got locked, so this one has a specific question:

Did anyone successfully return an EOTech for refund that has spray paint on it? I mean on the housing, not on the glass or anything. Having a hard time removing Aervoe and if L3 doesn't care, then I'm not going to care.

Yes.  I had one krylonned Tan that I picked up used.  Got most off when I got it with acetone, but still had a fair amount of paint...they took it no question.  I think they'll take just about anything, as a refund is probably preferable to a punitive judgement.

Awesome, thank you. I'll be another test dummy then and send this completely digital camo painted one in and see what happens.

I have no idea what model it is.... it says it was manufactured December 2009, has the front transverse mounted CR123 battery, brightness settings on the back with a round button above that says NV, and an allen screw mount that screws from the left side of the optic.

Mine was 10 years old, Covered in Spray Paint and I got full market value. The problem was getting the funds away from my wife. My Larue Trijicon TRO showed up Friday!

Sent 12 of them back that had been spray painted. They don't care. 

Without a photo it sounds like a XPS3. They'll give you the current msrp from 2009. You can list today's msrp and they'll send you a note telling you the msrp they'll pay out.  Took about 60 days from shipping the sights to receiving the check on the 12 I did. 

Hope that helps.

For those who sent EoTechs back for a refund.  I read some info on a class action suit last night that basically said if you had returned your EoTech and received a refund, you should receive $22.50 at some point as part of the class action settlement.

I just got a Court ordered blurb today.  Basically if you got a refund you will also get a coupon good for $22.50 off one Eotech purchase.  If you elect to keep your Eotech you can get a larger coupon but I believe the limit was $100.00.

I used my refund to help fund an H1 and I'm not looking back...
