Can anyone remember how times they left their illuminated dot or reticle scopes in the "on" position?  If it's a dead battery…likely no harm and no foul.  Likely someone at the factory left the illum. knob in the "on" position.  Not a big deal if the scope is otherwise in new condition.  Probably pilot error!
