Leupold Freedom RDS problem

So I was shooting my CMMG Banshee 300 Mk10 (10mm) and my RDS kept blinking off and on with most pulls of the trigger, sometimes staying off until I turned it back on. It seemed like the recoil was causing phantom button presses. Anyone have this trouble or know what might be happening?
I opened battery compartment, reseated battery, tightened cap, no help. Should have tried a new battery, but it's been used only one other time and is maybe 6 mos old and kept indoors in safe.


I do not know first hand about the RDS, but do know that it can happen. I had another name brand red dot on a 300 BLK pistol and went through two of them for the exact same reason before i switched brands. You should be able to send it back to Leupold, or the seller, for exchange.
Do not test battery voltage
Do not change the battery
Do not contact Leupold customer support
Just box it up and send it to me for long term testing and evaluation :s0062:
