Trijicon Introduces the AccuPower LED Riflescope Series

    I love pretty much everything about Trijicon products except for the price (as a civvy).  My favorite optic (in a different era of my life) was their ACOG.  I’m glad to see that they are staying current with tech, and bringing out new products.

    Generated from the success of the LED-powered Trijicon VCOG® and TARS™, the AccuPower series is designed for versatility with variable power offerings of 1-4×24, 2.5-10×56, 3-9×40 and 4-16×50. Integrating Aircraft-Grade Aluminum housing, superior quality glass lenses and advanced application-specific illuminated reticles, the AccuPower riflescope offers you the durability and dependability expected from Trijicon.

    The AccuPower line features anti-reflective multi-coated lenses with adjustable reticle brightness settings (offering eleven brightness adjustments with an “Off” feature between each brightness setting). They are all powered by a CR2032 battery.

    The AccuPower series incorporates a hybrid black chrome/etch and fill illuminated-reticle system available in red or green. Four reticle choices are available: MOA reticle, MIL-square reticle, Duplex crosshair, and a Segmented Circle crosshair with BDC capabilities. All reticles are located in the second focal plane (so the reticle size and appearance remains constant as magnification increases), which should provide a more exact aiming point at higher magnifications and should be faster to use in low light situations.

    Personally I’m interested in the 3-9×40 in MilDot which looks to retail at $1,025.  Do any of you have time with Trijicon’s product line?  If so, what do you think?
