Trijicon recently took the many features of its ACOG riflescope, proven design, illuminated reticle, ect., and added a variable optic.

The Trijicon VCOG (Variable Combat Optical Gunsight) 1-6x24 mm provides the flexibility to engage close-quarter targets, as well as targets that push the effective range of most service rifles.

Built in the USA, the Trijicon VCOG is machined from a 7075-T6 aluminum forging and given a hard-coat anodized finish. There is a full 90 m.o.a. of windage and elevation adjustment in half-inch increments at 100 yards.

The lenses are fully multicoated with a broadband anti-reflective coating that maximizes light transmission and resists abrasions. The scope maintains a constant 4 inches of eye relief, and has an oversized, knurled adjustment knob for fast power setting changes.

The VCOG has extra-thick tube walls, and is waterproof to 66 feet. It will be offered with seven, first focal plane reticle choices, which allow the ballistic reticle to be used at any magnification.

The red illuminated reticle is powered by a common AA battery, delivering 700 continuous hours of runtime at setting four of six with a lithium battery. A rheostat is located on the main tube, opposite the windage turret, and has an off position between each of its six brightness settings.

The VCOG is 10-inches long, and has an integral mount for attachment to any M1913 Picatinny rail. The 1-6x24 mm VCOG adds flexibility to the Trijicon line, and will be available in August 2013 with a MSRP of $2,270.
