TruGlo’s Second New Optic Series – The OMNIA

TruGlo did not just dip their toes into the scope world, they at least went waist deep. While the EMINUS series was designed for the longer-range shooter, the new OMNIA series is set up for the modern sporting rifleman. Forgoing the base magnification, the new OMNIA series is set up starting at 1x and working itself to 4x or 6x, model dependent.

Unlike the EMINUS, which opted for an MOA-based reticle, the OMNIA moves to a BDC reticle, yet keeps the same simplicity of design of the EMINUS. The APTR reticle (“All Purpose Tactical Reticle” BDC ladder is calibrated for the common XM-193 55-grain loads. The central crosshair is set for a 50/200 zero with hash marks for various other ranges. For those shooting other loads, the popular scope mobile application Strelok Pro already has the APTR reticle and ready to calculate for various distances.

The OMNIA is quite the value proposition, starting with aluminum 30mm construction (hard anodized, of course), is nitrogen purged, fog-proof,  multi-coated lenses, locking target turrets (1/2 MOA adjustment), included APTUS-M1 30mm optic mount, and a quick-zoom lever.

At release, there are two models, a 1-4x24mm and a 1-6x24mm. All OMNIA optics come with a Lifetime Limited Warranty. MSRP is set at $280 for the 1-4x and $369 for the 1-6x.

    Worth a looksee. I’m in the market for a good 1x without having to take out a second mortgage. It’s a toss up between vortex strike eagle, primary arms ACSS(of course) and now this one. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! As I know nothing about 1x’s.

    • Twilight sparkle

      Do the primary arms, the strike eagle and primary arms are exactly the same just with a different reticle (the primary arms reticle works best for most people) tru glow isn’t known for having very good quality control at their price point.

      • DanGoodShot

        I’m really diggin’ the name! As a single father of 3 girls I completely get it. Twilight Sparkle. Ha! Thanks for the info.

        The price point for this TruGlo is in the same ballpark as most PA optics. So the quality might also be higher than the usual TruGlo junk – in fact, I suspect it’s the same manufacturer as for PA stuff. I’d still go with PA for the warranty, though.

        • Twilight sparkle

          Could be, I do see some similarities in the tube design to the primary arms 1-6 power scopes. It wouldn’t be the first time this happened with TruGlo either, the tru-tec is an obvious holosun/md-ads knockoff

    • Sunshine_Shooter

      Look into the Lucid L7. It’s a 1-6×24 in the same price range, but doesn’t get much press.

    • Michael Boudreaux

      also check out atibal. I’ve heard good things about their sights and they’re very reasonably priced

    • Tacbear

      Go Primary Arms…Their 1-6×24 and NEW 1-8×24 have a NEW LIFETIME Warranty…it even covers wear and tear!!!!!

  • Independent George

    More choices are always welcome.

    I’m new to the rifle world, and am most interested in a middle/upper-middle tier illuminated 1-4 scope. Mostly I’ve learned so far is that, despite fierce competition in a crowded market, nobody has quite everything that I want.

    • raz-0

      What’s “everything” to you? Some of what you want might be ill considered if you don’t have much experience.

      • Independent George

        The short answer is: under 16 ounces, a bright daylight-visible illuminated dot, “off” increments in the brightness dial, I prefer (but don’t need) capped turrets (or zero-stop if uncapped), and I prefer ‘clean’ reticles over the cluttered windage/BDC/ranging markings.

        The Trijicon Accupower probably comes the closest, but the price tag is slightly above what I’d prefer (I was aiming for $400-$700); I’ll probably buy one if I can find a good sale. I like the Vortex PST (Gen 1), but the dot seems a bit dim for the NV desert (I live in IL, but take an annual shooting vacation in NV with friends/family). I love the Leupold VX-R’s weight, but hate the brightness button. I’m intrigued by the Weaver Tactical 1-5, but haven’t been able to see one in person; I need to know if I can live with that cluttered reticle.

        • raz-0

          I don’t think what you want can be done. A light scope in that category with a normal reticle is 13.xx ounces. You aren’t saying a daylight visible dot for under 3oz.

          And they don’t seem to want to sell such a critter at full weight for under $900.

          A used meostar with a k-dot can be found for the price though. Glass is nice, caps, every other notch is off. I’ve seen them go for $500. But it is 18oz.

          • Independent George

            I know – I had high hopes for the Leupold VX-R (11.5 oz!), but that button just drove me nuts inside the store; I can only imagine it being worse while shooting.

            That said, I might skip the 1-4 and just get a red dot instead. I’m frankly not yet good enough for scope quality to make a difference for me. A mid-level red dot seems like it’s more suitable to my skill level, and I can always move up to a scope later.

  • Nashvone

    it’s nice to have an option in the useful range of the rifle that isn’t a red dot and isn’t a marksman scope.

  • Warrior24_7

    I’m new to scopes. It’s affordable and looks pretty good. This thing is based on the 5.56 and is second focal plane if that matters.

  • valorius

    I’ve had good luck with TruGlo stuff in the past. My nephew loves ’em.

  • Old Vet

    This might look good on my new Ruger .300AAC Ranch. I have a Vortex on my AR, but I like the reticle in this one.

  • CavScout

    Same chinese scopes offered by PA or Vortex probably. Chinese is chinese.
