Is this normal for 507c?

    So recently I bought my first rmr 507c. I noticed that the reticle would cut off and disappear near the top of the glass. But the reticle would not fisheye and stay square to my view of it.

What happened?

    OP. I for one am struggling to understand the issue you are having. These sights are intended to have the reticle more or less centered in the window. Toward the edges you may get some parallax effect. I’ve never notices (I have two of them) as I keep it centered during shooting and I shoot a lot.

    So when I first got it new the reticle would disappear near the top but there was no parallax. See the first picture. The reticle would only show up on about 75 percent of the glass. Then after my first range trip with it I could see through 100 percent of the window but there was a fishbowl or fisheye effect when there was none before.

    I just checked my sight and the fisheye is normal since there's a slight curve in the corners of the glass. The cut off of the reticle before the edge of the glass is not normal. Not really sure what happened here.
