Eurosatory 2014

Accurate by design (ES14E3)

18 June 2014

Renowned US optics company Trijicon (Hall 5, Stand A708) is offering new reticle choices for its advanced combat optical gunsight (ACOG) 4x32 LED riflescopes. The ACOG scopes now include a selection of horseshoe, chevron, or crosshair .223 illuminated reticules in red and green colour, all of which are powered by a single AA battery.

Earlier this year, Trijicon announced the VCOG (variable combat optical gunsight) in 1-6x24mm, a highly flexible optic for close-quarters battle targets and those out to the maximum effective range of most service rifles.

With a constant 4in of on high eye-relief throughout the magnification range, it easily achieves 90 minutes-of-angle of windage and elevation adjustment in 0.5in/click increments at 100m on an oversized knurled knob, even with gloved hands. Its lenses are fully multicoated to allow maximum light transmission, yet exceed military requirements for abrasion resistance.

Offered with seven reticule choices, all of which are located in the first focal plane, the VCOG’s red illuminated reticule is powered by common AA battery housed underneath the objective.

The VCOG has an integral mount to securely pair the optic with any M1913 Picatinny rail, with two slotted screws to align it perfectly for flat-top M-16, AR-15 and SR-25/AR-10 style rifles.
