I bought one of these 2 years ago and I really enjoyed its features. I had it zeroed at 60yrds on my 22LR, then transferred it to my Hornet which I zeroed at 150 yards. Moving it backwards and forwards between guns then selecting the relevant zero had no loss of accuracy.

I had a rabbit job to do a couple of weeks back so put it on my CZ452 22LR and checked zero before I went. 

No problem there.

The place was heaving with rabbits and for the first few shots I hit every one I aimed at. Then I started to get some misses then all misses.. My mate was spotting through his thermal and said every shot was going high. Very high. It was too dangerous to continue as there were houses around I called it a night and he carried on shooting.

I wondered how it could go so far out of zero as it had held zero before, even swapping between guns., so tested it the next day, I put the target on a large piece of card so I could see how high it was shooting. 

The very first shot went right through the bull on a shoot n' see target. Hmm. :hmm:The next 4 were a little higher, but still touching the 2" target. 

I reloaded the mag and shot another 5. The whole group was about 2" higher than the first group. Another 5 shots and the group was 8" higher than the first group.

I checked the mounts and anything obvious and left it till next day. 1st 5 shots nearly cock-on, then climbing again with each shot. The reason I hadn't noticed is that for a handful of shots, it WAS holding zero, and I had only been shooting a handful so I hadn't noticed. Once there were numerous targets it was losing zero. The last time I had shot so many rabbits was about 2 years ago and over 3 nights I shot literally hundreds of rabbits without it once losing zero.

It's like something has worked loose inside the scope but settles down when it isn't being used for a while. Luckily Pulsars have a 3 year warranty and I've had this for about 2 1/2 years. I sent it back to be looked into and I've been told it could be 2-3 months to fix it. Great.

I had exactly the same problem a while back. It had been brilliant never lost zero, then it started spraying shots all over the place. It was sent back and a month later it was returned and has been spot on ever since. Pulsar/ Thomas Jacks said there was nothing wrong but they say that about all scopes according to my rfd. They don't like to admit fault.

Hello, I would ask for a new replacement ?

I expect that's what they'll do. They gave me a list of what to send back including the lens wipe, case, handbook, allen key etc., which seems unlikely if they were just going to fix mine. 

We'll see. If the new or repaired on is the same, that can go back too.

Hello, let's hope you get sorted, since the MK 1 Yukon Photon came out all these digital night vision scopes seem more complicated, well for me anyway, I would have liked the Mk 1 to be up graded as so much easier to set up and use
