Trijicon Inc. Wixom, Mich., is being awarded a $660,000,000 firm-fixed-priced, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for Rifle Combat Optics (RCO) fixed 4 power scopes designed for use with the M-16 family of weapons. The RCO enhances the Marine’s ability to identify and engage targets in combat situations at greater ranges and with increased accuracy over standard iron sights. The initial purchase will be 104,000 scopes at $610 each for a total initial delivery order of $63,440,000. The government may purchase up to a maximum of 800,000 RCO scopes on this contract over the five-year period the contract is in effect. Work will be performed in Wixom, Mich. (90 percent) and Fredericksburg Va. (10 percent), and is expected to be completed in August 2010. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract was competitively procured using full and open competition. The Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity (M67854-05-D-1061).

Best place and at the best price is through Teknic if anyone wants an Acog. He's got most of them handy.

Are you saying we would need to buy one soon, as the supply might get real tight again? I've already got an RCOM4, so I don't need another. I sure wish I could buy one at the .mil price though! $610 is a smokin' deal!

I'm thinking that at 104,000 a year they have to make over 412 of these a DAY (using a normal work calendar year). That's on top of the units they are producing for other SPECOP units and others not listed here that could be as great as the number above. I don't know what Trijicon's capacity is running at, but I'm thinking they are running at full rate with all the markets they serve. I just wonder if this isn't going to make a surge in price to the civilian market. Just my .02

I wish I had another TA01B for my other .308.

Didn't they vastly increase this manufacturing capacity last year.

The TA31RCO series is $610 for the government. That is what they are able to buy them for. I'm sure we could get the same price, but we would have to commit to buying at least $63,000,000 on the opening order.......

Trijicon has increased production capacity, but this may still strain their resources. Now I get it. They have been running ads in the magazines saying "Your Trijicon is now ready" or something like that. I got mine already, and it is sweet!
