Recoil-TV-web-ad-970x90-v6

In this installment of RECOILtv’s Gun Room, we join Editor-in-Chief, Iain Harrison, as he profiles Trijicon’s extension of their VCOG line. From a 1-6x power scope to the new 1-8×28 scope, Trijicon has set the bar for scopes designed with durability, ruggedness, and superb sight picture at its heart. Tailored for those who desire flat sight pictures at 1x power, to those who need to make distance shots with accuracy and precision, this VCOG boasts a ton of beneficial features.

FEATURES

  • LED Illuminated First Focal Plane Reticle
  • Superior Quality Glass
  • Rugged Aluminum-Alloy Housing
  • Adjustable Brightness Settings
  • Bullet Drop Compensating & Ranging Reticle
  • Quick Magnification Adjustments
  • Constant Eye Relief
  • Waterproof to 20 Meters (66 ft.)
  • No Rings Needed

Designed to be as soldier-proof as possible, the turret caps on the VCOG are dummy corded to the scope itself, making it difficult to lose them in the field. As well, you will not find any hash marks on the turrets since you won’t be dialing with this scope, but instead, ranging and elevating the scope using the reticle itself. Powered by a single AA lithium battery, operators are able to source power from virtually anywhere, and can utilize this single-piece scope in nearly any environment. This is a definite plus, though it does produce a sort of odd lump on the side of the scope itself. When it comes to the illumination, the VCOG has 11 different settings, including two night vision and nine day settings.

PROS

  • Sturdy, one-piece design
  • Aluminum body
  • Superb glass quality
  • Flat 1x power image
  • AA Battery powered

CONS

  • Big and bulky
  • Heavy
  • Thumbscrew mount

Simply put, the VCOG from Trijicon is built to last, and will have those who are looking for a low-power, variable scope drooling.
