With the incredible outpouring of 1-6x24mm rifle scopes at SHOT Show this year, I thought it would be a good time to take a look back at the Trijicon VCOG, 1-6x24mm rifle scope. Trijicon beat the rush, and introduced their VCOG at the 2014 SHOT Show, a full year before this year’s offerings.
Trijicon has almost become synonymous with high quality AR-15 rifle optics with their prolific ACOG used for years by the U.S. Military in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. According to Trijicon, they wanted to combine the toughness and function of the combat-proven ACOG, into a new style of variable optic. The Trijicon VCOG (Variable Combat Optical Gunsight) is the result of that effort, offering the now very popular option of 1-6x24mm in a variable power rifle optic.
