There is a rumor going on around here that if you mount your Aimpoint on the forward rail of the Socom that when the barrel heats up the dot will start to fade away. I don't know personnaly if that is true or not. I have also heard the same will happen to EOTechs. I understand that there could be a substantial amount of heat coming off the barrel if you put enough rounds through it, but I have never encountered, or heard from any of my compadres down range ever having these type of problems from the Aimpoint Comp M2s.
