    Trijicon ACOG

    I have been considering changing out my current Vortex Viper PST 1-4 to a Trijicon ACOG on my AR15.

    I don't utilize the 1-3 power settings only 4 power and i like the idea of the design having a drop comp for 223.

    Does anyone have any Trijicon ACOG products and can give me some insight I know there are alot of designs for Trijicon.

    Its what all the call-of-duty fanboys run.

    Beyond that I have no idea. I know they are rugged, and I know they cost a lot of money.

    My only experience with Trijijicon has been a handful of shots through an accu-point scope. It was VERY nice, but it also cost more than a Leupold Vari-X III. In that application, I don't think it was worth the extra money.

    I've looked through both the Accu-point and the ACOG. I really do like the way Trijicon makes their products.

    I realize that they are prominent in movies and video games so thee are alot of fan boys.

    I really like the fiber optics in the designs, but are they any good in low light conditions?

    and i really like that fact that its one piece, don't get my wrong i like the vortex quick release mount, but i just don't use it.

    The fiber optics make the reticle bright in low light, but it doesn't change the amount of light that the scope gathers.

    I am a huge fan of Trijicon, and will have an accu-point one of these days. One of the mall ninja's at my range runs a 1-4, and it is the nicest scope I have ever laid my hands on. I will definitely have one, one of these days.......

    The experience I have with the Acog, is only at the Gander Mountain across the border here, but it is a nice optic. Field of view and eye relief were lacking on the model I played with though. I really don't think it is an upgrade for you over the Vortex.
    You may not like guns, and choose not to own one. That is your right. You may not believe in God. That is your choice. However, if someone breaks into your home, the first 2 things you are gonna do are 1) Call someone with a gun, and 2) Pray that they arrive quick enough to save you.

    Acog with a piggy back red dot or the one with iron sights if you can get it. I personaly feel that these two options are the best for a carbine ment to enguage targets with in 600 meters or less. Also certain reticales can be utlized to range object to relate to your bdc reticale. Elcans are alright but me after you see the abuse that an ACOG can handle well all other optic's except S&B don't even get the same level of respect for me. More like I classify them as a good hunting optic.

    I don't play call of duty, but I am a acog fan, it's what I'm running on my ar's, I'm working on a ta11 with 308 bdc to try on my m14 shorty. This on is my favorite but pretty scarce

    TA31 RCO M4


    The rifle it's on is long gone, and currently sits on lmt mrp, it calibrated for a 14.5 barrel, but I'm currently running my 10.5 on it and love it.

    I'd like to try one with a secondary red dot/rmr set up they look like all kinds of awesomeness

    Given the chance: I'd buy one

    BUT: keep in mind that ACOGs have super short eye-relief. First time I shot one was on a .308 rifle and I was lucky I didn't take it in the eye. I feel like they really suck you in.

    I love Acog's they're super robust, all around a lot better than the C79. I'd love to grab one at some point just don't have something to put it on right now.
