Hello,

Is it normal for glass etched PR Gen2 mil dot reticles to have some kind of debris on it? I mean very small dust (?) particles in random places of the image when viewing through the scope (the scope lens are perfectly clean but these imperfections are still visible)?

Best regards,

Przemek.

My initial guess is that it's not normal but each of us is unique and what you consider debris I may dismiss completely.

I'll see if I can call those folks today for you (probably less expensive for me than you to call) and ask.

Welcome to Long Range Hunting, hope you enjoy the site.

What normally happens is that the dust is from the plating process is knocked loose during shooting and adheres to the lens. This normally is not apparent with 2nd focal plane scopes, but does sometimes happen.

If you continue to uses the scope the recoil should cause it to get knocked off again and you won't notice it.

While an attempt is made to keep this too a minimum, it does happen.

Generally, I live with it as it is a minor nuisance, but that's up to you.
