The idea born in the mind of Glyn Bindon in 1986, the first 4X32 TA01 was introduced in 1987.

Congratulations to Trijicon for their commitment to quality.

A true revolution in optics used on weapons fired in anger.

If you shop right you can get close. I was looking around on the net and the 4x32 with red chevron caught my attention. When I saw the price I thought, never going to happen. Then I went on the Trjicon website and found their $150 rebate in celebration of the 1mil unit sold. Back on hunt I found a deal on Ebay for the optic at $869, finished price with rebate $719. These normally run north of at least $1000~$1100.

 

So far I've used it out to 300yds on a Sig Sauer M400 shooting 55gr. bthp rounds that I've hand loaded and it works like a champ.

I am blessed to own a TA01NSN. I chose to carry it to combat and it never let me down. In my opinion the ACOG sets a gold standard that all other combat magnified optics are compared to. I have seen ACOGs survive IED strikes that killed the rifle they were attached to.

Does everybody need one, no by a long shot for the price are there more versatile optics avaiable for sure but I have yet to see an ACOG that would not take a beating that other manufactures would call abuse and it still works.

............................and I repeat myself........................I just wish I were rich enough to spend even $719 on an optic, even one like that.

I agree 100%.  Unfortunately,. I'm not in that category.  Still, I sure would like to mount an ACOG on my $400 AR!

It is difficult. If you want the best, you have to wait and save.

I have an optic on my AR that costs 2/3 the price of the AR. 

I know riflemen whose optic costs more than their rifle. 

 

You have to also look for "best bang for your buck" like the Aimpoint Pro I got in a group buy here. 

(You have to be a Patron for group buys)  

 

Keep saving and don't get discouraged. Like Red says, not everyone needs an ACOG,

There are many rugged and dependable optics out there that will give you great service. 

 

The ACOG is a stand out.  I am an awe of the man who designed it.

I already own a (now discontinued) Nikon Monarch Africa 1x4 scope which has been sitting on my .45/70 "safe queen" for the pas 7 years.  Just bought a mount for it last night and will put it on the AR until such time as I can afford something better.

Congratulations !

 

More like luck, I found the rebate the day before it ended. Then I found the Acog from Sportsman's Supply on Ebay. The price was so low I looked up info on fake Acogs and compared the pictures against those in the add. I thought it was too good to be real.

 

Here is a current offer on another Acog. They have around 10 pages of items with plenty of optics listed including MRO sights.
