Default Trijicon Accupoint Reviews

Any of you have any experience with the Trijicon Accupoing? Been looking to add one to a rifle and want to see if anyone here likes them. Reviews elsewhere are great.

Absolutely love them. You’ll find similar reviews here from what you’ve seen before hand

Would you prefer the 56 mm objective?

Great scope, I like the 56mm and the optics are outstanding

I do personally but even the smaller objectives suck in a ton of light. Great at night.

So they are great in low light but are not good in regular daylight?

I have a 2.5-10x56 and love it!!! It gathers light very well, especially for its price tag. I also run a vx6HD and a couple nightforces, but have never wanted to get rid of the trijicon. You will not be disappointed. Very clear, and a ton of light.

Wonderful optics. I have a 2.5-10x56 on a 10.5” 5.56 for varmints. It’s a great combo.

I have several 3-9x40 and a 2.5-10x56. I love them! Won’t buy any other scopes. Matter of fact I killed a big boar last night near Crockett Texas at 7:10 pm with a 3-9 around 100 yards...

Back up to hear about 3-9x40 Trijicons.

Note: For typical hunting rifle use.

Had a 2.5-10x56 on my LR-308....the absolute BEST outfit I’ve run for repeat target acquisition! Follow up shots in groups of hogs was amazing due to the huge sight picture.

Have them on 2 of my favorite rifles. They are both 3-9X40's with the Mil dot reticle and green tritium dot in the middle... When it's too dark to see with the naked eye, you can still take hog shots or yote shots if there's just enough moonlight or evening fading light to silhouette the animal. That green dot is money.Had a red one, but didn't like it as much as the green. Haven't tried the amber. Once I tried the first green one, I stuck with it.

Good review. I shot a hog the other day about 40 mins before sunrise. It was tough. A green dot would have helped a lot!
