Dropped the case on my tile floor and somehow cracked and chipped the glass..... But It should hold zero, so life will move on

ACOG TA31f





Taking a pic to show all the damage is really difficult, but there is a chunk of glass in the middle that was chipped out also. But when you look through the optic, only obstruction is a black pen like mark at the 6 o'clock position. I am surprised it lasted this long. It has fallen off mountains while hunting, fell on the floor a few times, and go knows what else it was subject to before i got it!

The TA01nsn model I have that was in the case also was fine, so maybe this TA31f is just a bitch of an optic since the TA01 was fine `

Send it back to Trijicon.

If anyone could manage to break an ACOG, it would be you.

Looks almost like "crazing" that some ACOGs apparently have even when new.

wow that is interesting. Yeah when I shake the optic, it makes rattling noise from the glass chunks that broke off inside the optic.

Same thing happened to me when I was in.

Armorer dropped my rifle during weapons draw and had to go almost my entire second deployment with nothing but a flip up BUIS.

In all my deployments I have never broken a ACOG, they will fix it just to see how you

I've only seen one and it was a TPE(received it broken from unit we were relieving) and never figured out what damaged it. Most likely an IED.

Yeah, a couple buddies of mine that are vets were giving me shit about it. Somehow I am capable of breaking a ACOG while they go to war and the ones they saw and used never broke. They said that the ACOG was surprisingly tough....until I got one apparently.

I cannot contact trijcon.... I am unsure of the history on this ACOG since it was gifted to me, so I am going to deal with it how it is. But.... will say this... My TA01 did call my TA31f a bitch since they both fell and the TA31f was the only damaged ACOG ha

Eye relief sucks, but It doesn't bother me to much.

No you can't use the buis and ACOG at the same time. But the buis does fit under the ACOG.

Do you think it was stolen or something? They will likely still fix it as long as it isn't .gov property. You can contact them with the serial number to find out.

I have no idea. I just figured since it was a gift from a friend (Friends don't buy 1000 dollar optics as gifts while in College) I would not chance it.

Believe it or not, send it back to Trijicon, chances are, they will repair the optics at no cost.
Contact Trijicon, and they will send you an RMA number for repair.

I have a TA31RCO That became "frosted" on the inside. It wouldn't hold zero, so I sent it in and Trjicon said it was a lok-tite failure. It hadn't really been abused, but I had it probably 8 years. They fixed it, no new H3 though.

I called Trijicon to try to research an RCO serial number i was looking at buying and the customer service rep said that they DO NOT have the ability to research individual optics by serial number.

I tried to call BS and call her a poser, since GD has told me many times that Trijicon does this, but she refused to budge.

Just go to your local PD and have them run the s/N on the NCIS system. If it's missing/stolen from the mil it will show it. If it isn't stolen when they run the number you are fine. Worst that happens is they take the broken optic from you and do a report. You aren't getting locked up if you go to them (local cops....regardless of what GD says). Just might have to rat on your friend if CID comes and asks you how you got it.....IF stolen.

ETA- the last thing you want now is someone coming to you first now that you put this info online about not wanting to poke around where it came from. What you just admitted to in a public forum is that it may be stolen and you are in possession of it and possibly unwilling to get it checked out.......go to the local PD with it tomorrow and just get them to run it.

Im not sure if you just don't know what your talking about or if you are joking. NCIC will show a stolen or missing ACOG if the S/N was entered. Being a cop for 10yrs we recovered several stolen items from the military that hit on the NCIC system. One being a suppressor.
There is a "list" as long as the item is entered in it. Wow.

NCIC is the nationwide system used by Federal,state, and local police for sharing info on wanted persons, stolen items, and other sensitive info. Every agency (MIL CID included) has the ability to enter items into the system in case a stolen item pops up in Kalamzoo And is ran by the local dirt road deputy. It even shows INTERPOL info and terrorist watch list info as long as it is entered in the domestic (US) system.
