Trijicon has a loyal following with its tactical/combat sights, and the new VCOG 1-6×24 is sure to be a popular addition to the lineup. VCOG stands for Variable Combat Optical Gunsight. It’s the result of demands from Trijicon users who wanted a variable power scope with bullet drop compensation for the .223, .308, and 300 BLK rounds. The bullet drop reticle is marked for each specific round. In other words, you must specify for which round you want the ballistics information when you buy your scope. The reticle is a first or front focal plane reticle. This means that the reticle changes size when you zoom so that it maintains the same proportion with the target. A front focal plane reticle provides better information for estimating distance to the target. Its weakness is that the reticle is thinner and possibly more difficult to pick up at the lowest power when transitioning to a target. Trijicon overcomes this by providing a battery-powered lighted reticle, therefore giving you the best of both worlds. MSRP will be $2,380 when the VCOG goes on sale in May.
