Last month I used a Trijicon AccuPoint 1-6X riflescope on the new Marlin 1895 Dark Series rifle in .444 Marlin, and it was an excellent application. The scope I used had the Cross-Circle reticle (more about it shortly), but if you prefer, you can have it with Mil-Dot crosshair, green dot; Duplex crosshair, green dot; German #4 crosshair, green dot; MOA crosshair, green dot; Red Triangle Post; Amber Triangle Post; or Green Triangle Post reticles.
The scope’s magnification range extends from true 1X to 6X, which is great for hunting the timber with your favorite woods gun as well as competing in action-shooting matches with your preferred AR. The scope features battery-free illumination via tritium and fiber optics; an aircraft-grade aluminum housing; and fully multi-coated, broadband, anti-reflective glass. It provides 3.9 inches of eye relief and an exit pupil ranging from 0.47 to 0.16 inch.
The Cross-Circle reticle is located in the second focal plane, meaning the dot stays the same size throughout the magnification range, and it has a framing circle (for quick engagement) with fine crosshairs and a green aiming dot. The dot automatically adjusts for brightness level and contrast to available light conditions, plus the brightness can be manually controlled by the illumination dial located on top of the scope. Windage and elevation adjustments are 0.25 MOA per click, and there is 110 MOA total travel.
The tube diameter is 30mm, and the scope is 11 inches long and weighs 19.2 ounces. The finish is matte black. It comes with a set of lens caps and a LENSPEN, and it is covered by Trijicon’s limited lifetime warranty.
