Trijicon has created another Brilliant Aiming Solution™ with the introduction of the new 1-8x 28mm AccuPower riflescope. The latest model of the newly introduced AccuPower series is destined to become an immediate success, offering the ultimate in versatility, durability and function for a variety of applications.
Packed with features for the serious shooter, Trijicon’s new 1-8x AccuPower is built around a first focal plane reticle to enhance speed and accuracy. Users enjoy superior optical clarity and brightness with Trijicon’s multi-coated broadband anti-reflective glass. An increased exit pupil delivers better light transmission through the 34mm tube with a true one (1) power setting and a full eight (8) power at maximum using an integrated zoom ring and optional extender. Knobs are locking and resettable without the use of tools. Graduated in .25 MOA or 0.1 mils, the 100 MOA (29.6 MIL) adjustment range provides users with control and accuracy without the need of tools. Available in either red or green illumination, the control knob with aggressive knurling on the left side of the scope offers 11 settings with an “off” setting in between each. Powered by a single CR2032 lithium battery, the battery can be easily replaced without tools.
Two new reticles have been added, the Segmented Circle in either MIL or MOA. Each is in the 1st focal plane and allows subtensions and drops to remain true at any magnification, allowing the shooter to quickly and accurately apply the correct hold while the segmented circle allows for unparalleled use at CQB ranges.
Compact enough for any AR, hunting rifle, or carbine it provides a power range meeting most any practical need. Whether on the field of battle, competition, or the mean streets the 1-8 power is just about perfect. Either the MOA or MIL Segmented Circle reticle make it easy to range, hold, and place accurate shots on target. Optical clarity, rugged construction, and intuitive features make this the most versatile scope you will ever own. Trijicon’s unparalleled strength, commitment to excellence, and customer service make it the perfect choice.
