First Look: New Trijicon AccuPoint Riflescopes

First Look: New Trijicon AccuPoint Riflescopes

Trijicon is adding two new riflescopes to its popular AccuPoint line in 2015: a 1-6x24mm and a 2.5-12.5x42mm.

The two new Trijicon AccuPoint riflescopes feature the same great technology as previous optics in the line along with a few key additions. Unlike past AccuPoints, the two new models incorporate an all new fiber optic dial configuration for manually adjusting the brightness level. Earlier models used a sliding ring as a manual brightness override.

In addition, the new models will be available with two new reticle options, an MOA-Dot and a Circle Cross. The MOA-Dot is available for both models, while the Circle Cross is only an option on the 1-6x24mm riflescope.


As with previous Trijicon AccuPoint riflescopes, the two new models feature battery-free illumination, multi-coated lenses, zero forward emission, a second focal plane reticle and an easy-focus eyepiece. All Trijicon AccuPoint optics also utilize a durable aircraft-grade aluminum housing that is waterproof to 10 feet and dry-nitrogen filled to eliminate fogging, and each scope sports a muted matte black finish.
