I just bought a TA-45 off of the EE, i already own a TA-50R and there is no comparision when it comes to brightness the 50 is alot more, the guy that i bought the TA-45 from told me it was 3yrs old the seriel number is 4271, is it normal for these things to loose there intensity in a few years?
or is the amber that much less intense?

Thanks
Paul

After 10 years, the reticle is suppose tio be 1/2 as bright.

The color is independent of the user. Some see Red better, some see Amber Better. I see Anber Beter than Red.

Send it to Trijicon if you're not happy. They'll give yu the staright G2.

call or email trijicon and give them the serial# they will be able to tell you exactly how old the acog is but i think the color difference is what you are seeing.



i myself feel that the red reticles are at least twice as bright as amber ones when comparing both new optics

Well i mounted it to a flat top [Larue excellent mount] and headed off to the range, in the low light the recticle is black, the only time i have a yellow dot is when there is light enough for the flouresnt tube, anybody ever have to deal with Trijicon,

A few months back I ran across a smokin' deal for 2 TA11's. One was 1 year old and the other 3 years old. Holding them side by side the older one was nearly twice as bright. I sent the new one into Trijicon (Top notch people, no fear dealing with them) and they replaced the BAC tube on top. Good as new as far as I am concerned.
Call them and send it in. Done deal & good luck ..
