[NRAAM 2022] Trijicon Releases New Compact ACOG Reticles
Trijicon provided the following information regarding the new ACOG.
Trijicon Compact ACOGⓇ TAC-R Reticles
Trijicon applies the same engineering expertise to our reticles as every part of our optic designs. Our TAC-R™ series of reticles (Trijicon Advanced Combat Reticles) include numerous features such as BDC stadia lines, target-ranging markings, wind holds, and illumination (which aids both-eyes-open shooting).
New to the TAC-R series is the RTRM (Rapid Target Reticle) for the 1.5x16S and 2×20 ACOGⓇ models. The RTRTM .223 reticle includes a bright fiber optic/tritium 2.0 MOA illuminated center dot, BDC holds to 700 yards for .223 REM 55gr. FMJ ammunition and a 16 in. barrel length, 7.5 MPH crosswind holds at 250 yards, and 19 in. width stadia lines for ranging. The RTR 9mm PCC reticle is specifically designed for 9mm 115gr. FMJ ammunition and a 16 in. barrel length. There is a bright fiber optic/tritium 2.0 MOA illuminated center dot with a horseshoe shroud to aid in getting the reticle on target quickly. Sight the optic in at 50 yards and the stadia lines provides BDC holds out to 300 yards in addition to being 19 in. width to aid in ranging.
On display at NRAAM 2022 was the RTR .223 1.5x16s. While getting a good photo of the reticle was next to impossible, my naked eye was able to easily discern each stadia line with ease.
The TA44 series has a very small footprint and comes with a single-piece mount for easy attachment and removal.
Each TA44 ACOG features dual illumination. Internal tritium provides constant illumination and the exposed fiber optic provides added illumination in brighter conditions. Both the RTR .223 and RTR 9mm PCC are available now and have an MSRP of $1,357.
