Designed for use with the M16 family of firearms, every feature of the ACOG's mechanical and optical design was chosen for a single purpose: to provide increased hit potential in all lighting conditions - without the use of failure-prone batteries. Service History The ACOG has set the standard for military aiming optics.
Trijicon ACOG 4x32 was tested in the Advanced Combat Rifle (ACR) program conducted by the U.S. Army in 1989. An ACOG was mounted on the rifle that was used as a benchmark in the test, and several contractors incorporated the ACOG on their proposed advanced weapons.
Since its introduction in 1991, the Trijicon ACOG 3.5x35 has been very popular with users concerned with combining long range accuracy with quick shot placement on moving targets. The 3.5x35, the first model available with the advanced Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC)*, makes this possible.
BAC* models can be used for botheyes- open “instinctive” aiming
for faster target acquisition.
For the military, the ACOG combines the benefits of magnified aiming with a compact and rugged design. This allows the soldier to selectively take out enemy ground troop leaders while reducing the likelihood of fratricide.
The ACOG is ideal due to its high degree of discrimination, even among multiple moving targets.
The ACOG's compact and rugged design makes it a valuable addition to any rifle. *Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC) The highly advanced Bindon Aiming Concept is an optical breakthrough that combines traditional long-stand-off marksmanship capability with the ultimate in close combat transitional aiming.
Using the both-eyes aiming method, when the weapon is being moved, the perceived image is unmagnified, permitting extremely rapid target acquisition. As soon as the weapon movement is stopped and the shooter is close to the proper aim on target, the targeted image “zooms” into
magnification, permitting greater shooting accuracy with higher hit ratios.
This is particularly useful for moving targets or for targets in dense cover.
Stronger by design The ACOG 3.5x35 have been successfully tested
beyond military requirements.
Tests include exposure to temperature extremes, salt spray, fog, fungus,
humidity, water depth, sand, dust, shock, vibration and free-fall drop onto
a hard surface. It is designed to withstand an impact of 8000 g's. A perfect
match Although the ACOG is a great addition to virtually any military or
civilian rifle, it's an ideal match for rifles in the M16/AR15 family for
which it was originally designed. A hole through the AR15/M16 integral base
permits use of the iron sights without removal of the scope from the carry
handle. Several flattop and other popular rifle adapters are available. Dependable
with high performance The user does not need to make any special adjustments
between shots at different ranges. Ranging for the 3.5x35 is already
built into the reticle pattern which is parallax-free along its vertical
axis. The width of the horizontal lines corresponds to the width of a 19-inch
silhouette at that range.
