Welcome to The OT!
 
My friend, I ran a search and came up with the following.
Hope it helps!
 
 
There's been some very favorable reviews from our members here recently regarding the Accupoints.

I was also curious to these scopes.  Is the quality of glass worth what they sell for?  I think they could make for a pretty sweet scope on my coyote gun.  I would love to hear of any experience people have with these scopes, mostly the accupoint.

Now THAT is very interesting....I would be 300% more interested in a Trijicon if they had conventional reticles that were illuminated.

hmm.

That is Trijicon's biggest scope.  The other two Accupoint scopes are 3-9x40 and 1.25-4x24.

...............................................................If you can, find the article in the Oct. `07 issue of "American Rifleman" magazine; page 96. The article is about the 3x9 Trijicon TR20. The same written there would also apply to the larger Trijicon scope! That article is very informative!....................Also, you can go to Trijicon`s web site and view the videos and additional info!

...........................................The Trijicons scopes are noted for their 2 eyes open, fast target acquisitions (moving or otherwise), which are mounted conventionally (not like scouts)...........According to Trijicon and other studies performed, the illuminated arrow sitting on thin posts sends the quickest signal to the user`s brain for the fastest possible target acquisition, with both the eyes open. Other reticles will not be as fast and are too busy!..............For that reason, I doubt Trijicon will offer other reticle choices! Also, the tip of the arrow offers a precise POA (point of aim), just as well as the crosshairs do for very tight groupings!!

Trijicon offers a bunch of other reticles.  Stop by their website or SWFA's Trijicon section for that matter.

They also offer #4 and MilDot in Accupoint scopes as well as 5.56 and 308 specific reticles in some version of ACOG.

The arrow is indeed very fast and may very well be the fastest.  If I were to buy a Trijicon, I would probably go with an arrow reticle, especially since I like inverted chevron aiming oints on Russian military scopes, so I am used to aiming with an arrow-like aiming point.

practical hunting scope with a simple illuminated post
and needing no batteries they are great.Most of the hot
air about them comes from non owners. Ask Dolphin (who is a
real optics expert) what he thinks of them. All I know
is that the one on my very light 338 Federal Kimber
will shoot sub MOA 3 shot groups out to 300 yards with
180 ballistic tips. That will kill any eating meat I have run across.
Waiting for my 2.5-10x56 to put on my 300 SAUM DPMS AR10LR.
It will be following a 4-16x50 Schmidt so that should be a
test in real conditions rather than a gander thru a gunshop
window. And yes the diamond does glow in the dark. If you have
one take it in a closed closet at midnite and you will see it.


..........................I wanted a 1.25-4 Trijicon for my 375 Ruger but there is not enough mounting tube length!...........No offsetting rings!...Ugleee!  THANKS to the front bell for being in the way!!!.............

I guess I must have missed where anyone in this thread, or for that matter, in any other thread, said anything negative about the Trijicon Accupoints as a hunting scope other than legitimate concerns about mounting length with the 1.25-4X24 model.   So, I don't understand the "most of the hot air about them comes from non owners" comment.  Best I can tell, they've had a very favorable reception here overall.
 
I don't own one, but I really like the reticle and the fiber optic & tritium illumination concept.  I have even considered buying one; I just don't happen to have a need for another scope at present.

I know that I have recommended them numerous times, depending on situational needs.
termite you are a Cencored well how about this, then your username does evoke certain truths about your true self.
