Hi all. I wanted to ask this question for a while now and get a response from the experienced crowd. I have noticed that most if not all of the lasers I have owned have what I call a "crooked beam." When coming out of the host at the aperature, the beam appears a couple degress of axis...either to the right or to the left depending on the make and model. It seems as if every laser I have owned has had an angle to the beam when compared to the alignment of the host. Some are worse than others. The beam never comes out perfectly straight. Am I getting bad luck with lasers or is this to be expected?? It is kind of frustrating because I dont know if I am receiving low quality models or if this is the "norm." I apologize ahead of time if this is a double post but I can't find definitive information about this topic. If anyone can help me I really appreciate it. Thanks guys.
