How does the trijicon scopes compare to the other brands of scopes that are commonly used for hunting? Scopes like meopta, kahles and zeiss. How does the glass compare for low light situations? This scope will be used for only deer hunting situations.  Thanks

very comparable, I'd say equal quality to the ones you've listed.  Superior illumination to all listed

Depends which Zeiss for sure and I have never seen a Trijicon that compares with any Kahles regarding optical quality. The higher end Zeiss and Kahles scopes are excellent in low light. Their contrast and resoultion are second to none. Where Trijicon does stand out is in their illuminated reticles. They are easy to see in low light but not so bright they flare out the sight picture.

+1. Both of the Triji's I had were great... and without issue. I preferred the green triangle in the woods.

I have two Trijicons. A 2.5-10X56, green mildot and a 3-9X40, green plex. To my 50ish year old cataract repaired eyes, the glass is comparable to Leupold VX3, Zeiss Conquest. The reticles trump every other reticle I've seen. For hunting pigs at night, which I do a lot of, that is what makes them worth the money. I DO wish they would build a 2-7 version for my slug gun, which is what I have to use at nearby military post. It now wears a 2-7 Leupold VXR #4 firedot reticle. Also a great scope considering it's cheaper price tag. It's not in Trijicons league though.

I've had all the Accupoints except the 1-4 (so, the 3-9, 2.5-10, and 5-20, various reticles) and they are great for low light hunting.  The optical quality is not equal that of Zeiss or Kahles top stuff, nor should it be for the price difference.

I'm running a 5X20X50 BAC Amber on my 7mm08 Rem 700 Varmint and sit until the edge of darkness.  I haven't had one issue yet with low light conditions.  Truthfully with a good moon I could sit over some of those open fields and clear cuts all night.  The drawback I have found for the BAC is that it just isn't suited for bench work at longer ranges.

The only issue I have had is the exposed turrets can be a bit of a draw for a 4yo that likes to turn knobs since they don't lock.  I had taken mine out of the case to dry it out and leaned it up in the corner of the bedroom, unloaded of course.  Apparently at some point my little boy turned the knob almost a full rotation.  When I went to my club and took the rifle out I noticed that the turret was off zero, thinking I had turned it getting it out of the case, I put it back on zero.  A couple of hours later I had a big buck come out and put a shot on him at 80yds.  Looked for a while and found no blood, took the dog back the next day to no avail.  Chalked it up to rushing a shot in the dusk.  Two days later I had a doe come out, set up at 100yds in broad daylight and took the shot.  Was 100% positive I had stoned her dead and she had fallen in the brush where I couldn't see her.  Continued to sit until dark.  Got down and went to retrieve my venison, she wasn't there.  I noticed a knick in a branch about 1' above where I made the shot..  The next day I shot the rifle and it was a 1' high.

Went home and asked my son if he had touched my rifle, which he knows is a big NO, NO.  He denied it but later knocked on the bathroom door and told me he didn't touch the gun but he turned those knobby things.
