- Trijicon ACOG Rifle Scope 4x-32mm Red Crosshair Illuminated Reticle 223 RemIn Stock$1,169.00
The legendary Trijicon ACOG, the combat proven magnified optic of choice for the US Military for two decades, is available for sale at Omaha Outdoors. Designed to be ruggedly simple, the ACOG is a fixed power magnified optic with an illuminated reticle via either fiber optic and tritium, tritium alone, or on a few models, an LED powered by a battery. The majority of ACOGs do not require battery changes or regular maintenance; they simply work as long as you need them to. A forged 7075-T6 housing ensures that unless your rifle is run over by a tank, your optic will not fail – Trijicon describes it as "nearly indestructible."
Given the advances in technology in the last twenty years, you might think the ACOG is a little outdated, given that, for example, performance cars have essentially doubled their power output in that time. While there have certainly been advances in technology, some of which have filtered into the ACOG line, it's a testament to the design of the ACOG and the hard work of Trijicon engineers in the 1990s that their flagship product is still as relevant today as it was when it was introduced. External ballistics effectively haven't changed, so things like the M4 BDC found in some 4x32 ACOGs are still important.
Other ACOGs feature BDC (ballistic drop compensation) reticles for new cartridges like 300 AAC Blackout and old ones such as .308, and the ACOG / RMR combo for sale has been updated with the new Type 2 RMR. Reticle colors have been expanded to include green and the reticles themselves include new options which provide more information to the shooter than the old simple chevron or donut with a basic BDC underneath. All in all, the ACOG looks ready to remain at the top of the fixed power combat optic dogpile for many years to come.
