Trijicon introduced its four-model AccuPower series of riflescopes a few years back, and for 2017 the Michigan-based manufacturer has added a fifth variant to the line that is even more versatile than any of its predecessors. Making use of an impressive 8:1 magnification ratio, the 1-8X 28 mm is equally suitable for close-up encounters and for reaching out at range. Available with both m.o.a.- and mil-based illuminated reticles, this 25-oz. first-focal-plane scope features fully multi-coated lenses and a hefty 34 mm tube. trijicon.com
