    The new model releasing in 2017 doesn't seem to address any of the mount issues. Or the adjustment mechanism issue; they're really only focusing on the magnification throw lever.

    The greatest thing is that you can order it from ELCAN directly for free! No cost to the user!
    But I am holding out for the third generation because I heard ELCAN is going to pay "buyers" $2,000 for each unit ordered. What could be better?
    Until Gen 3 comes out, I will be loving my Gen 1 as crummy as it is.
    Merry Christmas to all ELCAN users, have a Merry Christmas and hold your heads up: Better days are coming...

    Mind if you PM me the details / POC for this exchange program?

    No, I didn't but I thought it was hilarious if I played along.

    I asked Ken at KERIF about this and here is his reply.
    "I sent Josh the same answer when he asked...This is a new design upgrade that is expected to be announced at the upcoming SHOT Show (Jan 17th – 21st).

    As with anything Raytheon/ELCAN related, the announcement is a bit premature and may be weeks or months down the road.

    ELCAN is obviously trying to move the current inventory first and once this is depleted (and they get production in place) you can expect this new design to roll out.

    When available; if someone wants to change the battery housing out, you will have to send it to Armament Technology.

    To date, a price has not been set on the cost.

    Hope this helps."

    Still nothing on the adjustment mechanism that the video is pertaining to?

    Some forum rules do not allow posting of certain information/contact information - why I asked for a PM

    This also could have been addressed if what was posted had source/contact listed and reduce/eliminate conjecture - allow any of us to go direct to the source to inquire further
