I finally decided to invest in an ACOG for my BM M4gery, so I contacted Grant at G&R Tactical on Friday and placed an order for a TA47R-2. The scope arrived today (great service from G&R!) and I headed out to the Pine Barrens range in Westhampton. After getting the scope zeroed in, I put up a clean IDPA target at 100 yards with a small black circle to serve as a precise aiming point. From the bench, I was able to place 5 rounds of Federal XM193 into a 1-1/4" group, placing the black dot on the target at the tip of the chevron reticle. After shooting this group, I gave the scope a final adjustment of two clicks to the right, put up a new target and fired some 3-shot drills from the prone position.

I think I'm going to like this set up!

Red, by far.

Chevron? Do you mean triangle? If they are now making chevron compacts I gotta get one.

Thats an awesome group for a pretty much stock rifle with XM193.

Better contrast against most backgrounds.

Triangle is what I meant - sorry.

How about adding a pic of the reticle to the reticle thread!

Damn I ant one, but I can't justify 750 dollars. I bought a TA01NSN in 2002 for less.

compared to an aimpoint or eotech, how fast were you able to get on target? if you are able to compare.

My only experience with the Eotech was on my Kreb's Custom AK-103k with an Ultimak mount, a set up that was very fast - after the sight is turned on and the brightness level adjusted. Tough to make a call right now on the ACOG because my first (and so far only) outing was with an A2 stock installed, which I found way too long. I have put my Sully stock back on and the scope now snaps into alignment very quickly with a good nose-to-charging handle cheek weld. One thing is for certain - the triangle in the ACOG is much sharper and better defined than the dot in the Eotech, making precision shots easier. For really close and fast action, the Eotech is probably still a bit faster, but the table turns quickly once you get beyond pistol range.

i am glad i found your thread. i was tetering on a compact acog or the aimpoint. i like /need a little magnification. the speed of an aimpoint is great but out at 50-100 yds plus when trying to zero it is just not perfect. a little magnification i believe will give this just enough tweaking to do it right.
i was curious about the weight differences, that was answered.

i was pretty content with yellow and then you chimed in with red.

too many decisions.

Nice shooting! I want one too, but there's no way I can justify the cost right now.

I've been wanting a TA47R-2 for a long time...it's going to be a long time saving when my only income is a stipend.
Link Posted: 9/29/2005 9:28:13 PM EDT
Love to get one for my M4. Money's just hard to get atm.

there is no contest, the aimpoint/eotech would be much faster than the acog but if magnification is needed then that is where the c.acog shines!



and red is the way to go
