I've heard some rumors, but can't find any substantiation. What says the hive mind?

Wouldn't that be an expensive Accupoint TR24?

I should read more closely.

Hypothetically - no.

Granted, it's still just an internet rumor, I haven't heard anything official about it, just wishful thinking at this point, but I would think that a variable power ACOG would at very least use ACOG reticules, not the triangle post of the Accupoint- to include the BDC, and not be the long tube style optic, but a compact sight at very least no larger than the TA11 series, probably with a non-ring mounting base included in the optic "purchase."

At very least, this would be my expectation if they were going to even bother, and the only configuration that would make me look into it.

Wake me up when Trijicon decides to be not so hard headed.

A few months ago I was at a shooting competition that Trijicon had a booth set up at. I was talking ACOGs to him for a little while and he let me in on a secret that a variable ACOG will be released right around the new year. He said there will not be any information released on it until the last minute to keep from a massive backorder problem. He said it will have ACOG reticles and will be 1-6x if I remember correctly. I am really looking forward to it. He said it will be a game changer when it comes out. Might be just what I am looking for in my MWS.

I don't see it, but I LOVE the sound of it! I knew I've held out from buying a 1-4x for a good reason. I would love to see what it is supposed to look like.

Remember when Trijicon had on their website "Something Wicked This Way Comes"? I was anxious as hell to see what they came out with. To be honest, I was disappointed that it was a sight for a bow It's still cool as hell though.

Hopefully it will use the same mount and same height.

I'd be on that rumored 1-6 ACOG like white on rice. Here's hoping.

Well, I've been waiting for the Premier Reticles 1-8. It looks like they'll be out in the same time frame. We'll see how that goes.
