so i have an acog TA31G-H in the tan anodized ECOS color, however on the eyebox body it does not have the 2 mounting points for a MRDS mount. My acog looks like pic #1, but i really want the eyebox mounts like in pic #2. Would Trijicon be able to swap out the eyebox bodies? figured i'd ask here first before spending X amount of time calling the/on hold/trying to explain to a tech



pic #1:





pic #2:

Is pic 1 a fake ACOG? The screw caps don't look right and it's 2 different shades of FDE.

Yes, the dhgate watermark gives it away as they're a cheap Chinese importer. 


ETA: As for the OP'S question, Trijicon should make an RMR mount for both winged ACOGs and ACOGs without wings.

I have a RMR on my Ta33 without wings and Trijicon supplied the mount for it.

They call them bosses now apparently.

You'll need this part OP.

You can probably find it much cheaper elsewhere.

The OP is asking about the entire forged part aft of the body screws on the ACOG itself... He wants the RMR mounts forged into the ACOG, vs having to buy a ring that just encircles the ocular.

Honestly, this is a 5 minute conversation with Trijicon. I've called them numerous times and have never had to wait on hold for more than 30 seconds.

The bosses (technical name for them) are machined into the housing. Meaning you'd need a new rear housing unit. Meaning your 2 serial numbers wouldn't match anymore.

Some ACOGs have the bosses and some don't as you know, but the full ring mounts work too. (Bosses use half ring mounts)

Probably not, but the only way to know for sure is to call.

Not really sure why you'd go through all the hassle, though.  You can buy RMR mounts for the models without the mounting bosses.

It would probably be easier to trade with someone.
