After serving 7 years in the 82nd I was retired due to injuries that I sustained in OEF. I felt lost in the civilian world and decided to find a healthy and productive outlet. I found that shooting and practicing tactical drills worked for me but after running my FN SCAR 17S with irons for a while I decided it was time to gte an optic.
I had always trusted Trijicon but at the time I did not have enough funds for an ACOG so I purchased an EO-Tech XPS-3-2. The optic was not bad but it simply was not an ACOG. I longed for the ACOG’s Clarity, Magnification and awesome Reticles with BDC that would allow me to take those 3-400 meter shots. I have since returned my Eo-Tech and am saving up for a TR-11 or TA64 with .308 reticle.
That being said I am also looking at Accupoints, But in relation to the product review all I can say is that after spending countless hours behind an ACOG and trusting it with my life, I can honestly say that it is definetly the most durable / night mission capable / accurate from low to medium ranges and trustworthy optic avaiable in that price range. If you would be looking at making adjustments I would consider an ACOG using a FFP design with low profile adjustment knob that would easly adjust for longer shots…This is the only thing that The ACOG is missing “more maginfiation on demand.”
