Trijicon AccuPoint® Recognized for Excellence


Look for the Trijicon AccuPoint riflescope and other award recipients to be featured in the March/April 2010 issue of Sporting Classics. Each year, the magazine determines which products have made true contributions of quality and innovation to sportsmen.

Offered in a variety of magnification ranges and reticle styles, and built tough for the harshest environments, AccuPoint scopes combine advanced, self-luminous aiming technologies with superb optical clarity. As a result, they rival the performance of competitor’s scopes costing twice as much.



Trijicon Introduces 4.5 MOA 1x42 Reflex Sight


The Trijicon Reflex sight is considered by many marksmen to be the fastest and most user-friendly sight in the field- any field. New for 2010, Trijicon has announced the RX34 Reflex sight with smaller 4.5MOA amber dot for increased accuracy and precision shot placement. Dual-illuminated and parallax free, the Trijicon Reflex offers increased field-of-view capabilities that provide fast, both-eyes-open target acquisition and accurate aiming for the military, law enforcement and hunting enthusiasts.

The recently introduced Trijicon RX30 Reflex series features a 42mm, aperture lens for a generous field of view and a large sight picture. Allowing accurate both-eyes-open shooting that expands peripheral view, this advanced sight provides a critical advantage when you're aiming on the move, in low-light situations, or even in darkness. With the Reflex, a glowing tritium lamp ensures a bright amber reticle at night or in low-light conditions, while advanced fiber optics deliver ambient light to the aiming point during the day.

Nearly indestructible, the Reflex features a military-grade housing that's investment cast from aircraft aluminum alloy and hard-coat anodized finish. Tested to military standards, the sight stands up to, and performs under, the most extreme environmental conditions.

Stephen Bindon, Trijicon President and CEO:
“Trijicon has proudly served the U.S. military for more than two decades, and our decision to offer to voluntarily remove these references is both prudent and appropriate,” Stephen Bindon, Trijicon President said. “We want to thank the Department of Defense for the opportunity to work with them and will move as quickly as possible to provide the modification kits for deployment overseas.

Trijicon’s RMR Scores Shooting Industry’s Top Honors


The innovative new Trijicon RMR™ Sight was named “Optic of the Year” for 2009 by the Firearms Marketing Group’s (FMG) Academy of Excellence.

The world’s first battery-free red dot sight, the Trijicon RMR™ or Ruggedized Miniature Reflex™ won the prestigious award at Shooting Industry magazine’s recent master’s tournament in Connecticut. A group of 500 industry executives, gun dealers and outdoor writers judged the Trijicon RMR Sight the winner.

The Trijicon RMR’s triumph against tough competition in the Academy’s optics category came as no surprise to those familiar with the sight. Designed to improve shooter precision with any style or caliber of weapon, the RMR is the toughest red dot sight on the market. It’s built to deliver superior durability under the most extreme conditions.

“We designed the new RMR sight to be as rugged and versatile as our own Trijicon ACOG’s, as well as to provide ease of sighting and adjustment, solving important issues often associated with other red dot sights,” says Tom Munson, Trijicon’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “We’ve been thrilled with the overwhelming response from the industry, and receiving this award from the members of the Academy is a true affirmation that our efforts to innovate are resonating throughout all channels in the marketplace.”

FMG originated its Academy of Excellence awards in 1992. In addition to Shooting Industry, the company publishes GUNS Magazine, American Handgunner, and American COP.

Aiming for Excellence


New Trijicon Award Introduced at NRA Whittington Center’s Adventure Camp

Trijicon sponsored a new Hunt Skills competition at the NRA Whittington Center’s 2009 Adventure Camp, awarding specially engraved Trijicon AccuPoint® riflescopes to those campers who achieved the highest scores.

In addition to hunter safety instruction and tracking, participants were scored on a back country walk-through “hunt.” Here, the campers were faced with shooting targets of a wide range of animals – but only after making sure that they were in season, and were “game” for which they were holding a “license.”

In addition to introducing the new award, Trijicon increased its annual support to become a new Silver Sponsor of the Adventure Camp. Covering firearm fundamentals as well as wilderness map reading, animal tracking, wildlife management and more, the non-profit camp features two 13-day summer sessions for kids ages 13 to 17.

Our congratulations go to Jacob Sanchez of Rancho Cucamonga, California and Darren Curry of Los Cruces (not shown), New Mexico. They won the new Trijicon Aiming For Excellence Hunt Skills Award during the first and second camp sessions, respectively.



The Few and the Proud Choose the Trijicon ACOG®



In April, the U.S. Marine Corps selected the Trijicon ACOG® 3.5x35 as its squad automatic-weapon day optic. The scope will mount on the M249 light machinegun to assist gunners in target detection, recognition and identification.

“We are proud to continue our relationship with the United States Marine Corps, said Tom Munson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Trijicon. “First, we supplied them with a 4x32 ACOG for every M16A4 and M4carbine in service, and now we will give them this new ACOG to improve their machine guns’ effectiveness.”

The Trijicon ACOG™ 3.5x35 provides lightning-fast target acquisition and superb optical clarity, offering shooters pinpoint accuracy. Daytime illumination is provided by fiber optics, and tritium illuminates the scope at night.

The gunsight joins a long list of Trijicon products selected by the U.S. Marines, Army Special Forces, Navy Seals and others whose missions depend on reliable optics and superior performance. For more information please visit the Department of Defense website here.

Specifically designed to enhance the soldier’s ability to locate and hit targets quickly and accurately, these innovative shooting optics utilize Trijicon’s Bindon Aiming Concept™ (BAC) — a system that permits both-eyes-open shooting, greatly increasing the soldier’s situational awareness and lethality during fast moving tactical situations. The Trijicon ACOG has proven to provide the additional benefit of enhanced target identification, which has assisted in the reduction of both civilian and friendly-fire incidents. Highly accurate from muzzle out to 800 meters, the ACOG incorporates a built-in bullet drop compensator to allow the shooter to immediately engage threats no matter the distance.

Trijicon’s ACOG is dual-illuminated with an extremely reliable combined tritium phosphor lamp and fiber optic system to function completely battery free in all lighting conditions — meeting or exceeding the Army’s stringent selection requirements. Machined from solid, 7075-T6 aluminum alloy and dry nitrogen filled to prevent fogging —the internally adjustable telescopic sight has the highest quality optics and coatings. This provides excellent clarity even under battle conditions when the soldiers’ eyes may not be perfectly in-line.

Trijicon is honored to be the Army’s choice for this prestigious contract, and is looking forward to a productive partnership, providing soldiers with a rugged and reliable shooting advantage in the field. The first 100 RCO’s will be delivered to the Army within 30 days. The contract allows for the purchase of up to 135,000 ACOGs over a period of five years.

  • Trijicon Helps Those Wounded Heroes Who’s Spirit Keeps This Country Free
    The team at Trijicon is dedicated to supporting members of the military both on and off the battlefield — especially those service members who have returned home, having paid a dear price for defending our country. Partnering with the Wounded Warrior Project and Extremity Games, Trijicon sponsored a team of service members who have lost limbs during combat — for a special competition that gives these dedicated warriors the opportunity to once again strive toward victory.

    This year’s Wounded Warrior team consisted of 15 service members — each recovering from the loss of a limb while on the battlefield — who took part in several highly competitive, extreme sporting events held during the second annual Extremity Games in Orlando, Florida. These service members have been training as a part of their physical therapy and were able to compete in skateboarding, wakeboarding, BMX biking, rock climbing, kayaking, skydiving, surfing and in-line skating. While the participants in each event competed for money and other prizes, everyone left the premier event with an admiration for the spirit and dedication demonstrated by this amazing group.

    “These individuals embody courage and determination and it is inspirational seeing these incredible men and women compete” said Trijicon’s Director of Sales and Marketing Tom Munson, “They prove that nothing is impossible and we are really honored to have this opportunity to support them and this worthy cause.” he said.

    One of several programs offered nationwide through the Wounded Warrior Project, this important organization provides year-round sports rehabilitation activities to help our nation's severely war wounded rebuild their lives as they recuperate from their wounds suffered in combat. This grass roots organization relies completely on donations from individuals and corporations. That is why a portion of each product sold by Trijicon goes to support this program that is so essential to rebuilding self-confidence and motivation to succeed in rehabilitation and life — staying true to the Project’s motto: "If I can do this, I can do anything!"

    Introducing the Tactical Advanced NightVision System (TANS)
    Trijicon’s new Tactical Advanced NightVision System (TANS) brings cutting-edge night vision to the front lines in a compact, rugged and easy to use sight, providing a clear advantage for those who must go into harm’s way.

    The historical trade off for the critical advantage of seeing at night has been night vision equipment that was cumbersome, delicate or difficult to use. However, the new Trijicon TANS is a cutting-edge night vision system that is specifically designed to work perfectly in front of the Trijicon ACOG sights with negligible affect on boresight — allowing extremely rapid proficiency from one’s normal shooting position.

    Other advantages include:

    • Compact, universal, high-resolution, permanently aligned night vision sight for use with existing day scopes.
    • Fast f/0.9 Catadioptric Lens provides a brighter and sharper image in starlight.
    • Large 33 mm output optic fully fills most day scope objectives, producing a brighter output image and maintaining the full exit pupil diameter at the eye.
    • Low 1.5 in. optical centerline does not alter day sight centerline (sighting system is free from parallax errors).
    • Installs and removes without affecting boresight, eliminating the need for sight zero adjustment

      The Trijicon TANS will be available for purchase by military units and law enforcement agencies only.

    Because YOU Asked
    Shortly after we launched the Trijicon RedDot™, we received many letters, phone calls and emails asking us why we didn't offer our popular 4x32 ACOG with the RedDot. YOU asked; we listened!

    Trijicon is proud to unveil the TRD ACOG. The popular Trijicon RedDot combined with the Trijicon ACOG is the perfect solution for close quarter and long range shooting. Plus, both sights are backed by Trijicon’s limited lifetime warranty and tradition of quality.

    The Trijicon 4x32 ACOG provides military professionals and law enforcement officers a distinct aiming point in all light conditions – without batteries. Ranging is built into many of its reticle, allowing users to set zero and never worry about it again. And, a rugged, forged-aluminum housing makes it nearly indestructible.

    Developed for quick target acquisition, the Trijicon RedDot™ Sight is designed for mounting atop the Trijicon ACOG® (Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight). The sight features an innovative LED (light emitting diode) insert to sense the target’s light level and control the light output of the LED. This technology ensures optimum visibility of the red dot against the target.Power is provided by a long-life lithium battery. Accuracy is enhanced with adjustments for windage and elevation. And, performance is assured with a stronger-than-aluminum, polymer alloy body.

    Together, this combination is the ultimate in fast target acquisition and precision aiming at extended distances.

    NRA Whittington Center's Adventure Camp
    In today’s society, young people in America are offered few opportunities to truly develop vital traits, such as leadership and responsibility, especially those that come with the time honored lessons and traditions associated with the outdoors. That’s why Trijicon has partnered with C2 Productions, the creators of the popular hunting show On The Water, In The Woods With Cody And Cody, to focus on the NRA Whittington Center’s Adventure Camp — where young men and women experience America’s heritage first-hand in a unique and positive environment from some of the most skilled instructors and outdoor specialists in the nation.

    Dedicated to the mission of the NRA Whittington Center Adventure Camp, Trijicon has donated many of its shooting optics, including its AccuPoint® riflescopes, ACOG® shooting scopes and Bright & Tough™ night sights for pistols, to help NRA instructors at the center teach youth the solid and safe fundamentals of pistol, rifle, muzzleloading and shotgun shooting. The camp extends this experience far beyond range basics, strengthening each camper through training in such things as wilderness map reading, preparing a hunting camp, animal tracking, care of downed game and an understanding of wildlife management techniques — all in lessons designed to encourage and build leadership and team spirit.

    “We are very proud to help the Whittington Center provide these campers sights and scopes to learn how to safely use and handle firearms, which is only a small portion of what they learn here,” said Trijicon’s Marketing Coordinator Susan Belanger. “Programs like these are vital to broaden the horizons of our country’s younger generations, giving them a unique opportunity that literally cannot be found anywhere else in the world.”

    C2 Productions shares in this commitment to bringing the excitement and knowledge of hunting and the outdoors to young adults and will feature this year’s camp on their popular hunting show on The Sportsman’s Channel.

  • Introducing the Newest Member of the Trijicon ACOG Family: 3x30mm Trijicon ACOG TA33
    Trijicon is proud to offer the new Trijicon ACOG® TA33. This new 3x30mm model is designed for law enforcement and military applications — where the combination of ample magnification, low light capability and long eye relief make the TA33 the Trijicon ACOG of choice. This rugged, dependable aiming system is available with Bullet Drop Compensated (BDC) reticles calibrated to the trajectory of the .223 and .308 cartridges and provides precision aiming for targets out to 600 meters. The extended eye relief allows the TA33 to be mounted on larger caliber weapons — giving the marksman ample eye relief for all shooting positions.

    Like all of Trijicon’s battle-tested ACOGs, the new TA33 uses Trijicon’s patented fiber optics and tritium-based technology, providing a dual illuminated reticle. When on a SWAT operation or pursuing terrorists, the last thing you want to worry about is having your optical sight fail — that’s why the Trijicon ACOG TA33 is totally battery-free, featuring a red or amber chevron aiming point. The Trijicon ACOG TA33 takes advantage of the innovative Bindon Aiming Concept™ (BAC). In tandem with scope magnification, this revolutionary both-eyes-open aiming method provides the shooter with “instinctive” target acquisition and increased hit potential.

    Weighing in at less than seven ounces, which includes the mount, the Trijicon ACOG TA33 is perfect for the latest patrol rifle or carbine. A forged, 7075-T6 aluminum alloy housing gives it durability beyond the call of duty, and multi-coated lenses provide maximum optical performance in any light. The internally adjustable, parallax-free TA33 is far more rugged than conventional riflescopes. Waterproof (328 Ft / 100 Meters — five times the military requirement) and nitrogen-filled to eliminate fogging, the TA33 is made in Trijicon’s ISO-certified plant in Wixom, Michigan, and comes complete with a lifetime warranty.

    To learn more about the TA33, click the link to see the FirePowerTV ShotShow07 Trijicon Interview on YouTube.com.



    Introducing the Trijicon RedDot Sight
    Industry’s First Lifetime Warranty on a Reflex-Style Red-Dot Sight

    Trijicon is proud to announce its newest product — the Trijicon RedDot Sight.

    Backed with a full lifetime warranty, this new sight is a reflex-style red dot with applications for all types of hunting and shooting. The versatile Trijicon RedDot is right on target for handguns, carbines, rifles and shotguns and can also be teamed up with the famous Trijicon ACOG? for the ultimate in fast target acquisition or precision aiming at extended distances. Mounting kits are available for mounting to most ACOG models. The innovative Trijicon RedDot enhances the shooter’s capabilities, regardless of the style or caliber of weapon used — the “point and shoot” characteristics make this sight the natural selection when fast target acquisition is required.

    The Trijicon RedDot is fully adjustable for windage and elevation. A lithium CR 2032 battery powers the 8 MOA red dot — with a dark storage battery life of approximately 35,000 hours. Its lightweight (.5 oz) and compact (1” wide x 1.7” long x.9” high) and all accessories are provided — snap on cover, (which prolongs battery life) mini-dial and Allen wrench are provided with the system. The Trijicon RedDot sight uses a hardened polymer, resulting in a sight far more durable than other red dot sights — an important factor when second place is simply not an option.

    The tradition of quality for which Trijicon has been known for more than 25 years is now available in the new Trijicon RedDot sight.

    To learn more about the RedDot, click the link to see the FirePowerTV ShotShow07 Trijicon Interview on YouTube.com.



    Trijicon Responds to the Requests of Special Ops—with the Trijicon ACOG 4x32mm Enhanced Combat Optical Sight (ECOS)
    Trijicon is proud to offer the new Trijicon ACOG 4x32 Enhanced Combat Optical Sight (ECOS). This new model was designed for Special Operations forces of the US military, but will be available through civilian and law enforcement outlets as well. The Trijicon ACOG ECOS is the ultimate sight for both Close Quarter Battle (CQB) situations and longer distance shooting where accuracy and pinpoint bullet placement are required. The Trijicon ACOG ECOS is the first combat optic available to the public with the new Dark Earth Brown color now required by special operations forces — a definite factor in concealment — directly contributing to the safety of the operator, who is often in harm’s way.

    This dual-sighting system gives the shooter a distinct tactical advantage with the option of either the Trijicon ACOG or the Docter Red Dot Sight. With the quick target acquisition of the Docter Red Dot sight or the precise aiming capabilities provided by the magnified 4 power Trijicon ACOG — the shooter has the ability to select the proper aiming solution for the situation at hand — truly the best of both worlds.

    This rugged, dependable aiming system is available with a Bullet Drop Compensated (BDC) reticle calibrated to the trajectory of the .223 cartridge and provides precision aiming for targets out to 1,000 meters. Trijicon’s battle-tested reticle technology is proven, in mission after mission, to hold zero under the most demanding of combat situations, gaining the faith and trust of America’s elite Special Forces units worldwide. The last thing you want to worry about on a mission is having your optical sight fail you — that’s why the Trijicon ACOG is totally battery-free, featuring a selection of reticles in either red or amber.

    Two models of the Trijicon ACOG ECOS are available: The TA31 ECOS uses Trijicon’s patented fiber optics and tritium-based technology with a reticle that glows red continually in bright light, low light or no light at all. The TA01 ECOS model features Trijicon’s advanced tritium technology only — and both models feature back-up iron sights as specified by the U.S. Special Operation Command.

    This innovative sighting system, weighing in at less than 16 ounces, including the mount, is designed for the M-16 series of rifles. A forged, 7075-T6 aluminum alloy housing gives the ACOG durability beyond the call of duty, and multi-coated lenses provide maximum optical performance in any light. The ACOG is also waterproof (Tested to 328 Ft / 100 Meters — five times the military’s required depth) and nitrogen filled to eliminate fogging, the Trijicon ACOG ECOS is made with pride in the USA at Trijicon’s ISO-approved Wixom, Michigan manufacturing facility.

    NHRA Champion Tony Schumacher to Sign Autographs for Fans at Trijicon SHOT Show Booth
    Two Sessions January 12 Will Allow Fans to Meet Driver of U.S. Army Top Fuel Dragster

    Visitors to the 2007 SHOT Show in Orlando will have the rare opportunity to meet Tony “The Sarge” Schumacher, 2006 World Champion and driver of the famous U.S. Army NHRA Top Fuel dragster, in Trijicon®’s show exhibit.

    Schumacher will be autographing photos of himself in Booth #2237 in two sessions on Friday, January 12 — one at 10 a.m. and one at 2 p.m. As a leading manufacturer of self-luminous aiming systems for hunting, the military and law enforcement, Trijicon is a proud sponsor of the U.S. Army Top Fuel dragster. The U.S. Army Pro Stock motorcycle will also be prominently featured in Trijicon’s exhibit during the show; while Tony’s dragster will be on display in the lobby of the Orange County Convention Center during the entire run of the show. This will be a rare opportunity for racing fans to get a close-up look at the U.S. Army Top Fuel machine — and see it when it isn’t a blur going down the track.

    Schumacher’s accomplishments on the NHRA Top Fuel circuit are quite remarkable. He went to the final round in his first ever NHRA national event in Indianapolis and as been winning ever since — his World Championship title in 2006 marked his third straight and the fourth of his relatively short 10-year career. With 35 career wins, he’s now tied for fourth on the all-time Top Fuel victory list with racing legend “Big Daddy” Don Garlits. In 2005, Schumacher set the new national elapsed time world record (4.437 seconds) and new national speed world record (336.13 mph) for the quarter mile.

    “We’re proud to be associated with the U.S. Army Top Fuel car, and honored that Tony will be spending time in our booth,” said Stephen Bindon, Trijicon President and eldest son of company founder Glyn Bindon. “It’s a great opportunity for us to do something special for the many race fans in the hunting/shooting sports industry.”



    The Hunt of a Lifetime
    Trijicon donated a 3-9x40 AccuPoint riflescope to a very unique hunter. Despite Greg Eddy having cerebral palsy, he is capable of shooting with a crossbow. However, to fulfill his lifelong dream of hunting elk, Greg would need to take on the challenge of shooting with a rifle. With the help of a few special friends, Greg’s dream came true in August of 2006.

    Excerpt from “Assignment Completed” by Sam McCuin, Clark County Press, September 27, 2006

    “The smile on Greg’s face appeared to be permanently in place as guide, hunter, dad, and film crew headed for the blinds that Danny [Empey, guide,] had set up earlier. Danny explained that the elk were low in the creek bottom where they had water, food and cover, but would funnel up into the CRP fields toward evening to feed and bed. Greg would be waiting to intercept them and hopefully get a shot.

    "It took a little longer than expected to get Greg’s wheelchair in place, and before everything was ready, three awesome bulls were headed toward the blinds. Pandemonium and panic is the only way to describe what was going on in the blind! Danny was upset with himself for not getting in place sooner. Greg did get a shot at an exceptional bull later that evening but at nearly two hundred yards it was beyond his comfort range.

    "[The following day,] Danny had relocated the blinds, and the group got an early start getting ready for the action. Greg’s eternal smile was still in place even after his sleepless night!

    "Around 5:30 the elk started to get active in the creek bottom. Bugling bulls soon worked themselves into a rutting frenzy. The hunters’ hearts were filled with excitement as they waited with high hopes and silent prayers.

    "A lone bull began to journey up the side of the draw. Danny, Den and Greg were soon all abuzz, trying to position the wheelchair just right. The huge six by six was coming straight at them and stopped just short of a hundred yards! The first shot rang out. It was a clean miss. The bull was confused and didn’t know which way to go. Den fed another round in and Greg took deep breaths, readying for another shot. Bank; a solid hit. The gigantic 6x6 was dead on his feet. A final shot anchored the bull, and he collapsed.

    "Total shock and awe of the events that had just transpired turned to jubilation and floods of emotion. Greg had done the seemingly impossible for a young man born with cerebral palsy. He had mastered the rifle and held his composure under the most exciting of circumstances.”



    Trijicon Celebrates 25th Anniversary
    As Trijicon® celebrates its Silver Anniversary, this family-run and family-oriented business has much to be proud of.

    The world leader in the development of Brilliant Aiming Solutions, the company’s self-illuminating sights are the “shining” standard for hunters, law enforcement officers, shooting enthusiasts and military users. In fact, numerous Trijicon products have become standard equipment for U.S. combat troops around the world. Of course, the success Trijicon enjoys today has much to do with the company’s past…

    Glyn Bindon: Following His Light

    Trijicon was founded in 1981 by Mr. Glyn Bindon. His interest in self-illuminated sights set the company’s course and became the inspiration for using tritium to provide scope luminescence, thereby eliminating the need for batteries to illuminate the reticle.

    Demand for Glyn Bindon’s revolutionary products grew quickly. Trijicon hunting scopes and Night Sights were introduced in 1986. And, the change within the law enforcement community from revolvers to semi-automatic handguns during the 1980s created a new demand for superior quality illuminated sights, leading to large orders from Beretta, GLOCK®, and Smith & Wesson®.

    A significant company milestone came in 1989 when Trijicon introduced the Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG®). In 1991, the Navy Seals bought small quantities of the ACOG for testing, and based on the overwhelming success of the optic, it was adopted by the entire U.S. Special Operations Command in 1995. Since then it has gained acceptance from military marksmen worldwide. In fact, the Marine Corps is equipping every M16 rifle in its arsenal with an ACOG.

    Annother Innovation: The Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC)

    While proud of the success that Trijicon aiming systems were enjoying, Glyn Bindon was perfecting another major advancement named the Bindon Aiming Concept or BAC.

    This innovative both-eyes-open aiming method allowed shooters to acquire, track and hit targets more accurately than with one-eye-closed riflescopes.

    Looking Forward…

    “When you’ve been in business as long as the Bindon family, you learn a few things along the way,” said Stephen Bindon, Trijicon’s current President and eldest son of the founder.

    “One is that if you treat all of the members of your team as one big family—trusting their input and valuing their ideas—your employees, your company and your customers all reap the rewards. Another is that innovation is an ongoing process—because there is always a way to make something better.”

    Trijicon Improves Battle-Tested Sighting System
    Trijicon, Inc., the world leader in the development of Brilliant Aiming Solutions™ for the military, law enforcement and hunting markets, is proud to announce that the Trijicon ACOG 4x32 model TAO1NSN, the unit used by many U.S. Special Forces, is now available with the Docter Optic Red dot sight, giving users of this proven tactical sight even greater flexibility and CQB (close quarter battle) ability.

    The TA01NSN-DOC combines the technology of the battle-tested Trijicon ACOG (4x32) gun sight with the Docter Optic 7.0 MOA Red Dot sight. This provides the shooter the option of quick acquisition close range sighting with the Docter Sight and the precision for longer range shooting with the Trijicon ACOG 4x32. This ability to adjust to tactical situations gives the user the needed edge when lives are on the line and success is the only acceptable outcome.

    The Trijicon ACOG TA01NSN-DOC is an internally adjustable telescopic sight with an illuminated reticle powered by Trijicon’s tritium-based technology. This reticle is designed to hold zero under the most extreme conditions and present a bright aiming point in all low and no light lighting conditions.

    With the field-proven Docter Optic 1x red dot sight mounted on top of the Trijicon ACOG TA01NSN-DOC, this innovative sighting system provides the user with lightning-fast target acquisition while allowing for excellent situational awareness. “Trijicon is proud to supply the U.S. Special Operations teams with the Trijicon TA01 ACOG 4x32 for over 10 years — our collaborative work with SOCOM has yielded this improvement in the CQB capabilities of the ACOG,” says Tom Munson, Director or Sales and Marketing for Trijicon. “The overall “point and shoot” characteristics of this all-in-one gun-sight ensures that it will be the optic of choice for many tactical shooters, and it’s as always an honor to contribute to the safety and accuracy of those serving to protect our country.”

  • Sgt. Todd Bowers Guest at SHOT Show & Our Facility
    In our December 2004 issue of the Trijicon Update, we published an article from the U.S. Marine Corps website in regards to a Trijicon ACOG saving a marine’s life. Sgt. Todd Bowers, the marine from the article, was invited to last year’s SHOT Show but was unable to make it as he was still serving overseas. This year however, we were honored to have Todd as a guest at our booth. The still functioning ACOG with the bullet that remains lodged inside was displayed at our booth for all to see. Todd spent several hours at our booth recounting to visitors the story of how all Marines with ACOG scopes were called forward to distinguish the enemy and point out where they were for the rest of the troops. During the attack, a bullet aimed to hit Todd, missed him and hit his ACOG instead. There was some metal that was sprayed from the impact, however, Todd is alive and well.

    Since his return home, Todd has been working diligently on promoting the importance of having an ACOG mounted on your weapon as well as the government’s reimbursing for gear individual purchase to serve. Trijicon recently invited Todd to tour our factory to see how the ACOG scopes are manufactured. He received ovations as he retold his story at our all company meeting.

    Todd is proud of the work Trijicon does; however, Trijicon is more proud of the work people like Todd do.

    Trijicon Expands Sponsorship to Include NHRA U.S. Army Dragster & Pro Stock Motorcycle
    Trijicon® has expanded its sponsorship portfolio by signing a multi-year, associate sponsorship agreement with Don Schumacher Racing on the U.S. Army Top Fuel Dragster.

    “Trijicon is thrilled to join Don Schumacher’s championship operation as an associate sponsor.

By expanding our program to include the top team operation in NHRA, we can further reach our target market of hunters, law enforcement and military personnel. Trijicon is now even better equipped to market to those individuals who want to buy the very best, high-quality optics for their firearms.”

    Don Schumacher, President of Don Schumacher Racing said; “I am pleased that Trijicon has joined us as an associate sponsor. Their superior quality products are used by military and law enforcement organizations, as well as by many sportsmen. We look forward to working with Trijicon to further their sales, marketing and promotional goals.”

    Trijicon logos will appear on the US Army Top Fuel dragsters and the US Army Pro Stock Motorcycles. Additionally, Trijicon logos will be displayed on all other Don Schumacher Racing, race vehicles, all show vehicles, transporters, technology trailers and hospitality vehicles.

    Trijicon Introduces Its Newest Tactical Sighting System
    Trijicon ACOG® Gun Sight combined with the Docter® Optic Red Dot Sight

    Trijicon®, Inc., the world leader in the development of Brilliant Aiming Solutions for the military, law enforcement, and hunting markets is proud to introduce the Trijicon ACOG model TA31DOC.

    During the battles for freedom in Afghanistan and Iraq, a few U.S. Special Operations Forces began modifying Trijicon ACOGs by mounting a small red-dot sight on the top of each ACOG. The results were tremendous! Never before has an optic proven to be so effective for both close-quarter battles (CQB) and long-range lethality. Now, those same results can be yours.

    The TA31DOC combines the technology of the battle-tested Trijicon ACOG (4x32) gun sight with the Docter Optic Red Dot sight.

    The Trijicon ACOG model TA31DOC is an internally adjustable telescopic sight powered by Trijicon’s patented fiber optics and tritium-based technology. Its dual-illuminated reticle is designed to hold zero under the most extreme conditions and present a bright aiming point in all lighting conditions — providing excellent long-range precision targeting or even faster short range target selection using the Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC).

    With the field-proven Docter Optic 1x red dot sight mounted on top of the Trijicon ACOG TA31DOC, this innovative sighting system provides the user with lightening fast target acquisition in CQB situations while allowing for excellent situational awareness. “The Docter Optic sight fits the qualities of the ACOG; a high-quality glass lens, a strong aluminum housing, and incredibly fast aiming capabilities.”, says Tom Munson, Director or Sales and Marketing for Trijicon. The overall “point and shoot” characteristics of this Trijicon ACOG all-in-one sighting system ensure that it will be the optic of choice for many tactical shooters.



    The TriPower is Back!!
    After a long hiatus in our engineering lab, the TriPower is finally being shipped. Trijicon has improved the TriPower, which now features a durable body forged in hard-anodized aircraft aluminum alloy, a sleek scope design for maximum field of view, and upgraded lens coatings to enhance reticle brightness and optic clarity. Plus, the eyepiece is designed to allow for future development of flip-cap covers and mounting of adaptors.

    The Trijicon TriPower fills an important role for hunters by providing a quick and bright hunting optic for those fast-moving, close-in shots. In tactical users, it provides clearly visible aiming point for the varied lighting conditions experienced in CQB (close-quarter battle). And for the competitive shooter, the TriPower is ideal for the fast moving shooting event which can present a broad spectrum of lighting..

    Backorders are currently being filled. New order should be shipping in February or March 2006. So order now for the Spring 2006 hunting season..



    Trijicon to Deliver First 104,000 ACOG's to the USMC
    Trijicon, Inc was recently awarded a multi-year contract by the Marine Corps Systems Command of Quantico, Virginia for its Advanced Combat Optical Gunsights (ACOG®). The first large order of 104,000 TA31 Rifle Combat Optic (RCO) ACOG’s was received last month and Trijicon will begin delivering these scopes to the USMC beginning in October of 2005.

    Compatible with the M16 family of weapons, the Trijicon ACOG is a major improvement in combat optics for Marine infantrymen. It will enhance a Marine’s ability to identify and accurately fire upon targets from muzzle to 800 meters, providing increased hit potential in all lighting conditions without the use of batteries.

    The ACOG (called a Rifle Combat Optic by the USMC) incorporates Trijicon’s dual-illuminated, red chevron-shaped reticle and bullet drop compensator. In low light or at night, the chevron is brightly illuminated by tritium; in daylight, a fiber optic system collects ambient light and helps ensure daytime brightness and controlled contrast.

    In addition, it also features Trijicon’s highly advanced Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC), an optical breakthrough that permits a both-eyes-open shooting method that greatly increases hit ratios in fast moving Close Quarter Battle (CQB) scenarios.

    Trijicon is extremely pleased to be supplying the Marine Corps with its exclusive ACOG, and is looking forward to an ongoing productive partnership with them.



    Compact ACOG Chosen for the NLAW Advanced Weapon System
    SAAB Bofors Dynamics have chosen Trijicon® Compact ACOG® as integrated primary sight for its new NLAW advanced one-man weapon system. The Compact ACOG will be used on both the combat and the training weapons systems.

    SAAB Bofors Dynamics' new light antitank weapon, NLAW, was chosen in 2002 for a joint development contract by the British and the Swedish armies. The British army has since placed an order of a mass production series. This first order, worth over $500 million (USD), includes a large number of training units which are part of the training and simulator developed by SAAB Training Systems in Huskvarna, Sweden, as a sub-supplier to SAAB Bofors Dynamics for the UK.

    NLAW is a "fire-and-forget" light anti-armour disposable weapon. NLAW has a guided missile with unsurpassed performance. The missile flies autonomously to the target, independent of distance, target angular speed, wind, temperature, etc., after the soldier has aimed and followed the target for a few seconds. Consequently, the shooter does not need to determine distance or compensate for any of these factors that traditionally required extensive training. The NLAW, equipped with the Compact ACOG 2.5x20, is simpler to use than any other common ballistic systems in the category "short range antitank weapons."

    Trijicon, a world leader in magnified combat optics, has proven its superior quality in multiple military scenarios. In choosing the primary optic for the NLAW system, the Compact ACOG met the seemingly opposing demands for minimum weight and volume while providing the extreme strength needed when mounted on the NLAW. Trijicon met or exceeded all functional tests, including the requirement to have a functional life of over 20 years, without service or change of energy source. In addition, the sight will be zeroed during assembly of the NLAW and will not need to again.

    The development work for the NLAW system was completed in Sweden by SAAB Bofors Dynamics as the prime contractor, working with companies from Sweden, UK, Finland, Switzerland and USA. Final assembly will be done by Thales Air Defence Ltd., in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

    On the Water in the Woods



    100,000 and Counting
    Thanks to your continued support, Trijicon has reached a new milestone. We are manufacturing our 100,000th Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG®) scope in April. To commemorate the unit, we are having the TA31F gold plated and it will be on display at our headquarters in Wixom, Michigan. The ACOG has come a long way since it was first introduced in 1987. Although the original TA01 does not use the Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC) like all the newer models, it is still one of our most popular scopes. The TA11, introduced in 1992, was the first to use BAC. Since then, the Compact line of ACOG scopes, as well as numerous standard-size ACOG scopes, utilizes this technology. Today, we are making more ACOG scopes than ever. So, we are at 100,000 and counting…


     
    Trijicon Pursues Legal Action Against ACOG Patent Violation
    Trijicon, Inc., the originator and sole marketer of the ACOG® riflescope (Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight) has promised to pursue legal action if necessary against New Century Science & Technology, El Monte, California (aka NcSTAR) to prevent that company from marketing a replica of Trijicon’s popular ACOG®. Trijicon served NcSTAR with a cease and desist letter during the 2005 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, where NcSTAR was offering its unauthorized replicas for sale and representing them as “an exact copy of Trijicon’s ACOG® scope”. A Trijicon representative obtained one of the NcSTAR copies during the trade show and it was confirmed by examination that it was, indeed, a virtual duplicate of the ACOG®. NcSTAR agreed to cease distribution of the ACOG® replica was instructed to advise its Chinese supplier to discontinue manufacturing the product. Trijicon will conduct periodic surveillance to ensure NcSTAR upholds its end of the cease and desist agreement.

    “We take great pride in our ability to produce high quality, unique optics”, says Stephen Bindon, President of Trijicon, Inc. “We will vigorously pursue and prosecute any and all infringements of our intellectual properties.”

    The Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight ACOG® was designed by Glyn A. J. Bindon, founder of Trijicon. The company has been awarded a U.S. patent and several international patents on the ACOG®. The company also believes that the distinctive design and appearance of the ACOG® should be protected from duplication under current U.S. trademark laws. Therefore, Trijicon maintains that the Chinese-made clone constituted both Patent Infringement and Product Configuration Infringement, and promised to pursue legal action if New Century Science & Technology, Inc. continues to offer the ACOG® knock-offs for sale.

    The Trijicon ACOG® is in wide use globally by military and police organizations as well as by discriminating sportsmen. Trijicon has issued a cautionary statement to its customers to beware of unauthorized ACOG® replicas which are neither endorsed nor warranted by Trijicon and have not been researched, tested nor manufactured according toTrijicon’s stringent quality control standards.

    Marines Name Trijicon ACOG Official Rifle Combat Optic
    The Trijicon ACOG riflescope (Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight) has earned the singular distinction of being named the first-ever Rifle Combat Optic (RCO) of the United States Marine Corps. A multi-year contract was awarded to the Michigan-based optics manufacturer in August, 2004. The RCO will be mounted to the M16A2, M16A4, and the M4A1 carbine to enhance the Marines’ ability to identify and accurately fire upon targets from muzzle to 800 meters.

    The TA31RCO will be a slightly modified version of the TA31F 4x ACOG. The Corps currently has approximately 6,000 of those models in service. The new model will incorporate Trijicon’s exclusive dual-illuminated red chevron-shaped reticle and bullet drop compensator. In low light or at night, the chevron is brightly illuminated by tritium; in daylight, a fiber optic system collects ambient light and helps ensure daytime brightness and controlled contrast. The system is totally battery-free. A new Target Reference System will allow a rifleman to quickly and accurately reference the location of a target and communicate that location to fellow Marines. The TA31RCO will also feature Trijicon’s highly advanced Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC), an optical breakthrough that permits a both-eyes-open shooting method that greatly increases hit ratios in fast moving Close Quarter Battle (CQB) scenarios. The TA31RCO will be available for civilian sales at a later date.

    According to Major General J.N. Mattis, Commanding General of the 1st Marine Division during Operation Iraqi Freedom: “The ACOG mounted on the M16 service rifle has proven to be the biggest improvement in lethality for the Marine infantryman since the introduction of the M1 Garand in WWII.”
