Trijicon has announced thier first VCOG riflescope. The VCOG (Variable Combat Optical Gunsight) is a zoom scope, in contrast to their famous ACOG line of combat scopes which have a fixed magnification. The first VCOG will be a 1-6x power with a 24mm objective lens. A range of reticles will be available with bullet drop compensation for the 5.56mm, .300 BLK and 7.62x51mm cartridges. The reticle is situated on the first frontal plane (meaning the reticle zooms in proportion to the target as you increase magnification).
The scope is illuminated and runs for 700 hours off a single lithium AA battery. It starts shipping in August.
Thanks To Jakob for the tip.
