Kinda strange isn't it. Like folks who buy a Corvette and put "el cheapo" K-Mart tires on it.

I have one acog and one accupoint 10x both with green reticles. Mine is the chevron version. I dont have another rifle that needs the capability of an acog.

If a meteor fell on the one i have i would definately get another one. Altho i dont think even a meteor strike would hurt it....

Those accupoints look sweet. They look like a good ar/spr optic. I'm afraid of what will happen when I buy the ACOG. From what you guys are saying, I'll be saving for another one as soon as I use the thing for the first time.

My only negative on the acog is its only really good on ar15 scar and other low recoil type flattop rifles. This is due to the short eye relief. If there was a longer eye relief acog it would definately find a home on my 458winmag!!

Jon, where would you say the Accupoint excels? Btw I want to mount it on a Stg-556. I just bought a MeproLight M21, but I also want a longer range optic too. My Stg is a flat top.

While you're waiting for JonM's response, I'll interject this...

I have an AccuPoint 3-9x40 w/ green mil-dot reticle on a hunting AR, and in addition to Trijicon's clear glass and built-like-a-tank construction, this scope has excellent low-light capabilities with its fiber optic/tritium reticle and lens coatings, so important in many hunting situations. It makes a fine hunting scope or target optic, for that matter.

I use the mil-dots for longer range hold over rather than ranging capabilites. In my case hunting with a 6.8SPC, I'm sighted in at 200 yards, and at my maximum range for deer hunting with this cartridge of 300 yards, I hold over one mil-dot.

For a self defense use I'd look elsewhere at either red dots or ACOGS.

accupoints are superb hunting and designated marksmen scopes for medium range application. if you need a rugged optic with superb lowlight to bright light capability they are fantastic.

accupoints are quite as rugged as acogs but you get much better precision. acogs are minute of goblin accupoints are which spot on the goblin do you want to hit.

like any scope its not good for cqb while the acog is. the accupoint is an excellent choice for hunting target shooting varminting but not kicking in doors or something i would put on a generic patrol rifle.

i may end up putting an accupoint on my 458

Well dang, now I want an Accupoint. I bet it would be pretty sweet on those new .300 Win Mag ARs.
