How does the yellow illumination on the TAO1NSN look? I've never seen it in person and am curious to how it looks, if anyone has a pic. I looked in the stickied thread, but there are no TAO1NSN's.

eh? I took the sight pic of my TA01NSN in the tacked thread, though not in low light conditions, its amber reticle and it being so fine makes it harder to use than donut, chevron or triangle.

The TA01 and the NSN model are best for long range. Some say it is good for close distances but the main function is long range.

I think i might swing toward the TA01 now.

What are the differences in the TA01 and NSN? Just the amber vs red reticle? Does the TA01 have the POS back up sight?

Never had any problems with it. It stand out pretty good at night. Its a soft amber.

TA01 has a BDC for 20" 55gr, and I think its meant to be carry handle mountedd. BDC to 800m.

TA01-NSN, BDC for 14.5 and M855 to 600m, flat top mounted with TA51 mount and back up ghost ring rear sight and tritium equipped front post.

Get the one thats right for your barrel and ammo.

i prefer the soft amber i guess its just whats best for you. my advice is not to take everyones advice, see if you can find someone with one and ask him to try it. make up your own mind.
with an investment worth this much money i take no ones advice with out myself giving it a test ride
my buddy has the red chvron and its too bright for me

Yeah, I really want to test ride one, but I will probably end up waiting closer to Christmas to get serious about buying and trying out the different models.

Oh, and I have a 14.5" flattop

I bought a NSN model Trijicon earlier this moth. The low light illumination on mine is green.

Duffy, how does the eye relief on that thing work?

The mount has since been replaced by a PRI mount that has more flexibility in mounting positions and height, but even without it the LMT/Crane stock helps with the eye relief issue

The TA01NSN reticle is supposed to be NVG compatible, even so it blooms in the sight picture of the PVS14. Not an idea setup but it'll work in a pinch.
