Trijicon®, Inc. expands its extremely popular line of ACOG® gunsights by introducing the newest and most powerful addition: The Trijicon 6×48 ACOG (TA648MGO), which will enhance target identification and increase hit probability for additional in-the-field accuracy on extended range shots.

The United States Army recently elected to provide up to 135,000 of Trijicon’s Advanced Combat Optical Gunsights (ACOG), the 4×32 ACOG, to the Army’s M150 Rifle Combat Optic (RCO) program.  The new Trijicon 6×48 ACOG will offer the armed forces additional versatility in their optical arsenal.

Like the other members of the ACOG line before it, the Trijicon 6×48 ACOG is completely battery free and powered by Trijicon’s patented fiber optics and tritium-based technology.  The reticle features either a red or amber chevron aiming point and incorporates a Bullet Drop Compensator (BDC) that offers additional accurate aiming points for trajectory of the 5.56mm M855 out to 800 meters, the 7.62mm M80 out to 1200 meters or the .50 BMG round out to 1800 meters.  New for the 6x ACOG, Trijicon has incorporated a Manual Brightness Adjustment Override, allowing the user to shade the fiber optics when used during daylight — customizing the brightness of the illuminated reticle to the user’s desired level for optimal target contrast.

The Trijicon 6×48 ACOG also incorporates the innovative Bindon Aiming ConceptTM (BAC) — a revolutionary both-eyes-open aiming method that provides the shooter with “instinctive” target acquisition and increased hit potential.  Weighing in at 34.6 ounces and measuring 9” L x 2.9” W x 3” H, the Trijicon 6×48 ACOG mounts to any MIL-STD-1913 rail using the supplied mount.  A spacer system is also provided allowing the sight to be configured properly for varying weapon systems.  Additionally, the top mount offers the added benefit of being able to stack a picatinny rail compatible optic on top of the ACOG.
