Trijicon AccuPower 4-16

Postby jnic » Sun Sep 30, 2018 10:25 am

I’m leaning towards a Trijicon 4-16 for one of my 6.5 grendels. Is the resolution worthy of a scope costing a bit over $800? Green illumination is standard, red is special available as special order. Would red be worth the wait?

i found the green dot in general to be more usable across all light conditions where as the red dots tend to wash out in bright sun. otherwise the scope should serve your needs well.

I also greatly prefer green over red; it just catches my eye better. When I bought my ACOG I ordered the green.

The human eye sees green much easier than red. I’d always go green if I have the option.

Thanks for your responses

Optic Planet had it for roughly $750 (about $75 less than Midway). After I placed my order I discovered that Amazon had it for about $75 less than Optic Planet B(

I received it over the weekend, green reticle. I haven't had a chance to mount it as of yet because the mounts haven't arrived. That said, thus far I'm pleased with the purchase. Scope itself fells rugged. Resolution/clarity seems to be on-par with my Zeiss Conquests. Making ethical shots during dawn and dusk shouldn't be a problem.

I know. The neighbors eight blocks west have no idea how many times I've killed that stop sign.
