Picked this up and cant find any info on the web, hoping to track down a manual or any info actually.

On the front bell ring it reads: Trijicon 3x9x40, on the bottom of the bell it reads: contains tritium, purchaser is exempt etc, etc.

On the back part of the scope there are for threaded openings.Three of the openings have colored "glass" in them, green, red, amber. The fourth has a plug odf some sort with a screwdriver slot in it.

The side of the scope at the turret says: BAC3-9x40REV21:23
below that is says 000007
and below that is says made in Japan.

Thanks in advance

Never seen a trijicon that looked like that.

well, I finally got in touch with the guys at Trijicon, I must say I was ready to kill when.....

they told me it is not an accupoint, it is a Trijicon Spectrum. The Spectrums were phased out early 2000 - 2001.

Thanks for alll the quit replies (and wit),

Interesting looking scope.
 
How is the glass?
 
 
It should be fine to use.  Did they comment on the warranty?

No worries JF, I had never seen it either, and I definitely meant nothing accusatory in my reply
.

 The glass looks great, very sharp. The only thing I worry about is that the half-life or tritium is 12.5 years and it is already going on 10.

The dude said he thought they were still serviceable so I might try to send it to them and have it replaced. Depending on the cost.

I think it would be a good ideal to have the tritium vile replaced in it.  Kind of interesting reminds me of a traffic ligt.

I just check it in a dark room and the tritium is dead, anyone have an idea of the cost to get it replaced?

Nope, never had one that long.
 
I would guess it will be not cheap, but not expensive.  How's that for noncommital!
 
Let us know what they want to replace it, I have several Trijicons and was wondering what the cost would be, that's good info to have.

For what it is worth, I found on another site a guy said he sent one back and they quoted him $290.00 but they did not end up charging him.  http://www.m4carbine.net/showthread.php?t=18816

OK guys, the guys at Trijicon said they could refill the tritium for 24.99 per lamp, but supposedly it has 4 lamps. In theory each color is supposed to be illuminated by tritium.

I might take it to the next gun show and see if I can move it, if not I will send it back and see what happens....
