Mount fail. I wonder if the illum is day visible and what the weight is. I can't believe they used that mount design, some Bobro levers would've been better.

Overall, it looks like it does have a lot of potential though.

Hmmm. I'm liking it, but it looks like it's heavy and lacks the normal Trijicon illumination methods.

Odd they chose the old "Wide" reticle as the primary option too. Actual ACOG reticles would have been more appealing IMO.

No reticles for M855 or M80.

"... The segmented circle reticle with a centered crosshair can be matched with 175-grain 7.62, 55- and 77-grain 5.56, or 115-grain supersonic 300 BLK loads. The popular horseshoe/dot reticle is available in each of the 5.56 and 7.62 offerings."

It looks nice overall.

But to be honest, I was hoping for more when I wished for a VCog several months ago.

The main thing missing is a Fiber Optic Illumination system. I really expected either a illumination system like the traditional Acog Fiber Optic/Tritium or what is on the SRS (Fiber Optic/Battery).

And having a non-changeable mounting system that is a Quick Release version is also a minor letdown.

Probably no fiber to keep costs down.
I'm interested

23.2 ounces with the mount removed and no battery. Fucking ouch.

At a cursory glance, it appears that it uses a relatively standard TA51 ACOG mount with an integrated mounting base in the sight housing. If so, it would mean that any existing QD ACOG mounts would work with it. Even if it is not the TA51 mount for the 4x32 ACOG, it doesn't look too different, and it should be easy for QD mount companies to make one for it.

Invariably if it had been released with Bobro levers, some would complain that they weren't LaRue or ADM mounts and complain that they shouldn't have to pay for a mount they won't even use. The relatively low cost Trijicon thumbscrew mount allows them to keep the overall price down and allow consumers to choose their own QD mounts, but still include a useable mount for those that do not want or need a QD mount.

Man, I hope this comes in at a more affordable price than the TARS. Any idea on MSRP?

MSRP of VCOG is $2,270.00
I'm not interested at that price. We'll see what street price will be.

If you are willing to spend that kind of money, I'd say look at the US Optics SR-8C.
The SR-8C has 1-8x magnification, FFP Mil ranging reticle, and SFP red dot.

At that price I'm looking for a Elcan Spectre.

I agree and with a MSRP of close to $2300!

It ain't gonna happen for me!

I like the concept (variable zoom ACOG, built-in mount, FFP), but it is HEAVY!

HUGE SWING AND A MISS.

Over 2k for a Trijicon that does not have tritium/ fiber optic illumination. Covered moa turrets. The reticle choices suck. They should have done a mil/mil setup.

PASS.

I would be interested around $1,500. I wonder if they developed this optic in conjunction with the TARS for a military contract rather than aimed at the civilian market.

It will use any mount for the acog

Yes it's daytime visable
And it's not that bad on weight and balanced out my gun well

Street price should be about 1800-1900

Played with one and thought it was very disappointing, for the same reasons as stated above (price, lack of fiber optic, reticle choice).

Trijicon VCOG vs ELCAN Specter DR 1.5-6x

Price: $2300 vs $2500 w/ QD, the Bobro mount version the VCOG will probably add another $100
Weight: the same
Length: 10" vs 7.2"
FOV: ELCAN's prism design will have significant bigger FOV
Battery: AA vs DL 1/3 n
Daylight illumination: unknown vs daylight visible
Battery life: 700 hr vs 600 hr at daylight visible or 2000-3000 hr at low

the VCOG has 1x lower magnification, AA battery and slightly cheaper.

like'ing the AA battery instead of the coin types.. buuuut....

unless it was applied within the acog's base housing's(for the win), it's just another scope as any other's in my eyes.. and a waste..

as others have stated.. even the lack of fiber included into this also diminishes any probable gains of the optic..

Yea... that isn't looking too promising to me. I don't see too many intelligent people choosing that over an ACOG or Accupoint
