Buying AR 6920 with Trijicon ACOG Scope TA01NSN 4x32 Military as part of package.
I have no experience with this type of scope.
Would appreciate any information, pros/cons, adjustments, etc.
TIA

good accurate scope.


crosshair model acog with tritium to illuminate the reticle in the dark. would depend on how much you are paying for it.

search acog and you will get multiple threads discussing them

Great for the bench and from behind concealed cover. Not a "running and gunning" optic.

Pretty precise, nice optical clarity, but eye relief is not all that forgiving.

And the amber reticle illumination washes out completely under sodium lighting (streetlights).

Thank you for the responses.
It would be $800 NIB if bought with weapon.
As suggested will do search on ACOG to get better idea for what will meet my requirements.

Not for $800. You can find them here on the EE for less or model 31 for that money. As far as the illuminated ret., by the time it glows its to dark to identify targets. Sold mine, wouldnt do it again. Not that model anyway. IMO. -Justin

I would recommend the TA31 over the TAO1. If funds permit, you should consider the TA11F, my personal favorite.

$800.00 ??????
Thats way to much for an NSN.
LIke said above you can get a TA31F for that money.

You should be able to pick up an NSN for $650.

Thanks for all the advice.
Starting to search for more information on a Trijicon ACOG Scope TA31RCO M4 4x32 Military.
So let me know if I am on the right track.


Will just have to ask the better half for some cash come the holidays rather than the "special" gift.havehinking.gif

The TA31F should be fine. It would save you a few bucks over the RCO model.

Found BUIS info I needed.
Link Posted: 12/18/2005 6:33:07 AM EDT
No, you're not gonna find a LaRue BUIS with an ACOG, there's no easy way to use your ACOG that way, it'd have to be mounted too far forward for you to get a good cheekweld.
You'll need a folding BUIS like KAC 300M, ARMS #40 or 40L, Troy's BattleSight, GG&G MAD, all of which are great sights.

Remember, the ACOG is a combat optic first and formost. If you are looking for 1/2 MOA precision at distance, go get a USOPTICS, Night Force, S&B or other such scope. The bullet and barrel calibrations are to my way of thinking irrelevent at the distances that 99.99999% of us shoot at.

If you are one of the .000001 who shoots his/her AR at distances beyond 600 meters then pay attention to the barrel/bullet calibration. The ACOG was designed to hit a man-size target and it delivers on that promise with either a 14.5, 16, 18, or 20 inch barrel. If you want to drive tacks at distance....there are better choices out there.

As for me.....here's my choice!

Vey nice-looking and practical set up. Nice rifle.

Thank you for the kind words. I must however give credit to Dave Donely of Donely's Guns. It was his inspiration, sweat and knowledge. I just provided the money.
