    Guys. My first ever oakley x-metal. Really excited. However, I found out after that it has the loose nose issue on the right side. Seems to be common. Bought it from a fellow on CL. Came with box, cloth, paperwork and extra rubbers for nose/temple. I think he kept the coin though as it is missing from the holding place. Can you tell me if this is 100% genuine and if I should get the nose tighten up at oakley or X-man?

    Rivets are not Oakley, appears to be some glue or residue on the backside and color is off. Probably the reason they are loose. Easily fixed though, send the to the X Man for tightening. They will be better than new.

    Those are original Oakley rivets.

    Maybe its just the over exposed pic but the rivets look funky to me. Possibly they put some glue on the backside in hopes of tightening them up.
