Trijicon ACOG®

The Trijicon Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG) is a fixed power, compact riflescope with an illuminated reticle pattern for use in bright to low/no light. The ACOG is designed to be extremely durable and reliable. It combines traditional, precise distance marksmanship with Close Quarter Battle (CQB) speed. Many variants include a bullet drop compensated (BDC) reticle. Every feature of its design was chosen for with the aim of providing increased hit potential in all lighting conditions. It is available in 12 models ranging from 1.5x16S to 6x48 where the first figure indicates the magnification and the second figure indicates the diameter of the objective (front) lens in millimeters which is important because it controls how much light the scope can let in, and ultimately transmit to your eye.

Features

Battery-Free Illumination. Most ACOG®models feature a tritium/fiber optic illuminated reticle that automatically adjusts the brightness based on available light.

Rugged aluminum-alloy housing. Forged 7075-T6 aircraft-aluminum-alloy housing provides for a nearly indestructible sighting system.

“Both Eyes Open” Design. The ACOG®can be used as a CQB sight when shooting with “both eyes open,” utilising the Bindon Aiming Concept. Human vision is based upon a binocular (two eyes) presentation of visual evidence to the brain. The word binocular literally means using both eyes at the same time. Several ACOG models are designed to be used with the “Bindon Aiming Concept”, an aiming technique developed by Trijicon founder and optical designer Glyn Bindon. The technique is essentially uses the illuminated part of the reticle and its focusing rear eyepiece as a collimator sight (a collimator sight is a type of optical sight that allows the user looking into it to see an illuminated aiming point aligned with the device the sight is attached to, regardless of eye position).

Superior Quality Glass Lenses. Multi-coated lenses provide superior clarity and light-gathering capabilities with zero distortion.

Fixed Magnification. Fewer moving parts provide more durability than a variable optics. Seven magnifications are available to include 1.5x, 2x, 3x, 3.5x, 4x, 5.5x, and 6.

Bullet Drop Compensating and Ranging Reticles. Bullet drop compensation (BDC) (sometimes referred to as ballistic elevation) is a feature available on some rifle scopes. The feature compensates for the effect of gravity on the bullet at given distances (referred to as “bullet drop”) in flat fire scenarios. The feature must be tuned for the particular ballistic trajectory of a particular combination of gun and cartridge at a predefined muzzle velocity and air density. BDC is available in most models.of ACOG®.

Combat Proven. ACOG® is combat proven as it has been extensively used in battle.

Shock-resistant. Proven to withstand recoil from a .22LR (.22 Long Rifle or simply .22 LR is a very popular variety of .22 caliber rimfire ammunition, and in terms of units sold is still by far the most common ammunition in the world today and its velocity varies from subsonic to hyper sonic) to a .50BMG (.50 Browning Machine Gun cartridge was developed for the Browning .50 calibre machine gun in the late 1910s, entering official service in 1921. The cartridge itself has been made in many variants: multiple generations of regular ball, tracer, armor-piercing (AP), incendiary, and saboted sub-caliber rounds. The .50 BMG cartridge is also used in long-range target and anti-materiel rifles, as well as other .50-caliber machine guns. It is in service till today) and everything in between. It easily passes US Military drop test requirements.

Waterproof. Exceptional waterproof performance up to 100 Meters (328 ft.).

Anti-Fogging. Dry nitrogen-filled to eliminate fogging.

Warranty. Tritium lamp is warranted to illuminate for 15 years on fiber optic scopes and 10 years on non-fiber optic scopes.

ACOG®/RMR®Combo

This is the Ultimate Sight for CQB and Long Distance as he dual-sighting system gives the shooter a distinct tactical advantage with the option of either the Trijicon ACOG®or the RMR®. For quick target acquisition, choose the RMR®Type 2 LED; Type 2 Adjustable LED or RMR®Dual-Illuminated sight. For accuracy and pinpoint bullet placement at a distance, choose the magnified ACOG. You have the best of both worlds. No separate tools are required for windage and elevation adjustments because the ACOG also features external windage and elevation adjusters.

Trijicon RMR®

Features in all RMR®Sights

Versatile Sight. Multiple primary applications including rifle, pistol, shotgun and carbine, or use as a secondary sight with a magnified optic.

Unique Patented Housing Shape. Military-grade aluminum alloy forged housing shape diverts force of impact away from the lens thus greatly increasing its durability.

True-Color Multi-Coated Lens. Creates a wide-band light transmission for minimal change in target area color.

Parallax. It is Parallax free.

Adjustable Windage/Elevation. Both the parameters are easily adjustable without special tools. The unit is 1 MOA per click. (Sights on a target rifle are adjustable in units of measurement called minutes of angle (MOA) which is equal to 1/60 of a degree (there are 360 degrees in a circle).

Water Proof. It can operate up to 20 m(66 ft.) under the water.

Warranty. Tritium lamp carries a warranty of 15 years from date of original manufacture (Dual-Illuminated RMR). Electronics carry a warranty of 5 years from date of original manufacture (LED & Adjustable LED RMR).

Trijicon Battery-Free Technology. Tritium-phosphor lamp illuminates reticle in low-light conditions and fiber optics automatically adjust the brightness level and contrast to available light conditions.

RMR Type 2

RMR Type 2 has three models- LED; Adjustable LED and Dual-Illuminated.

RMR Type 2 includes a button lock mode, and battery saving features, which make this optic ideal for concealed carry and Law Enforcement use. The Trijicon RMR is extremely versatile as a primary optic on handguns, rifles, carbines and shotguns. When paired with a magnified optic, the RMR is an excellent solution as a secondary CQB optic, and as a backup sight. Trijicon RMR®Type 2 is designed to be as durable as the Trijicon ACOG®, while also improving precision and accuracy with any style or calibre of firearm. A pistol mounted Trijicon RMR Type 2 allows you to shoot more accurately at longer distances by focusing your attention on the target, not the combination of your front post, rear post, and target. It is designed with a patented housing shape that absorbs impacts and diverts stresses away from the lens to increase durability. It also offers redesigned and upgraded electronics that have been proven to perform when mounted on slide ride pistols and other small arms. It’s suitable for military, law enforcement, concealed carry self-defence, target shooting, and hunting applications. When paired with a magnified optic, the RMR is an excellent solution as a secondary CQB optic, and as a backup sight.
