Stories from Those Who Protect and Serve

First, let me say how happy I was we had Trijicon scopes on all our weapons during the storm [Hurricane Katrina]. When all your spare batteries are under four feet of water it was one thing I did not have to sweat. We were also operating in what could only be described as a "maritime" environment. Scopes were submerged in highly corrosive water every day and not one failed due to this. Not one of your scopes failed at all during this operation. I had plenty to think and worry about so not having to worry about your product was a great relief.

I've been a police officer for the last 33 years, and a SWAT officer for the last 17. I've always been a fan of your night sights, and recently purchased a set of your HD XR sights for my Glock 45. While all of your other sights are excellent, you really nailed it with the HD XR! I was impressed enough to put the sights on all of my Glocks. Well done. Thank you for your efforts!

I've had the pleasure of using Trijicon products on both my military and police service weapons. I'm always amazed by their glass clarity, the usefulness of their reticles, and the quality of their sights. Trijicon truly understands that life may depend on their equipment working in tough conditions. They definitely set a standard for the industry, and you shouldn't hesitate to use their products.

I just wanted to let you know that we have recently put into use the RMR Red Dot Led (RM01). I have to say, that we are extremely happy with the product and would recommend it to any agency who is looking for another option. The sight is truly well made and was almost "Dead on" out of the box, which by the way took only a couple shots to get dialed in. The weapons are now purely surgical. Confidence with our M4's among the troop is off the scale. Thanks again for your help.

I am a Patrol Officer with the Anchorage Police Department. Last week I was involved in a close quarters shoot out with a suspect. My G17 was equipped with Trijicon HD XR night sights. The sights allowed me to rapidly acquire the suspect and place fight stopping hits that kept myself and my fellow officers alive and uninjured. Thank you.

As a prior enlisted officer in the Marines I did not welcome the order to draw a weapon with an ACOG when I was involuntarily activated for Iraq. Boy was I wrong! Three deployments later I swear by Trijicon for its durability and reliability. I've been a cop since 2001 and tell every true rifleman I meet about the incredible customer service that Trijicon offers.

I am the commander of the Charlestown Police Special Response Team. I am contacting you to thank you for making the ACOG, We use these on our M4's. These things will take a beating and keep a zero. We use your night sights on our handguns and they never fade over time. thanks, your products allow us to do our job day or night and we rely on them with confidence.

"I used Trijicon products while on active-duty and deployed in Iraq. Your products saved lives and I am very confident in using them as they are a proven asset."

Manuel Perez—Columbia, Maryland

My first tour in Iraq I was an SDM and  was issued an ACOG for my M16A4 along with a decked out M14.  Anyways, I fell in love with the ACOG. It took  a lot of abuse and just like the Energizer bunny it kept on ticking.  I just ordered my first (definitely won’t be my last) product from you: a set of night sights for my .40 SHIELD. I got to looking around your website and saw that you put Bible references on your products, I just want to say I 100% approve of that. I know I can get good quality night sights with other companies, but you never let me down when I was in Iraq and I know you won’t let me down with these. To me that's worth it.

I have trusted Trijicon's quality for almost 23 years. The U.S. Marshals Service has purchased over seven thousand Glock pistols since early 2000. At my request, the USMS specifically requested them to be equipped with Trijicon brand night sights. Only 100 units did not have your sights due to a very short, temporary out of stock period at the Glock factory. (Regarding the order of 100 units with another night sight installed, over 75% had to be replaced in under 6 months because of "leaky lamps")

Thank you very much for your valued customer service and support for those of us in the law enforcement profession.

For one year I used the Trijicon ACOG on my M4 rifle in the Afghanistan mountains, and would like to tell you how great of an optic it is. During my tour overseas I climbed mountains walked through village and city streets and was a gunner atop my MATV truck, and my ACOG was always with me. My ACOG took one hell of a beating over there and every time I went back to base and checked my zero it was always right on. I sighted it in when I was first issued it and never had to make an adjustment afterwards. Thank you for making a product I can truly say I trusted my life with, the Trijicon ACOG.

Nick —U.S. Army

I joined the USMC in 2005 and had an Acog issued to when I deployed my first time to Iraq in 2006. It saw combat, IED's mortar attacks and was still dead on everytime. Not only does it hold a great zero but these combat optics made observing potential IED's and enemy activity with some stand off distance possible. I just bought my own USMC RCO for my M4 and i can tell you now it will never come off my rifle!

I have no doubt that this sight aided my son in coming home safely from two tours in Iraq. According to my son this sight allowed him to consistently "out-shoot" every one in his group. My son is in the 101 Airborne 377 FA (Air Assault). Many of the soldiers that saw him shoot called home and ordered the same sight.

The ACOG sight is used on entry weapons for our department's SWAT Team. I have used it for several years now and have found it to be the best sight I have ever used. Speed and accuracy are instantly improved once our shooters use the sight.

Mike Jenskins—Turlock, California

I'm a drug task force officer in NW Minnesota and was involved in a fatal shooting a few days ago. In the past I've always tried to use an ACOG 3.5 scope on my service rifle but due to my agencies resources, I've had to utilize a non Trijicon red dot sight for the last couple years. Last week (a few days before the shooting incident) I was fortunate enough to be provided with a VCOG 1x-6x scope from my agency. I was unfamiliar with the VCOG at the time I received it, but immediately fell in love with it. The shooting I was involved in was a Deputy taking high power rifle gunfire from a subject a few hundred yards away. I was able to get to about 230 yards away from the suspect and return gunfire to neutralize the threat. There's no doubt in my mind that the VCOG optic on my service rifle at that time was crucial to providing accurate and effective gunfire at that range. I'm writing to give a heartfelt thanks to the men and women who design and manufacture Trijicon products. My experience is a testament to the quality and precision that's built into each of your products that results in lives being saved every day. Please pass my gratitude on to as many in your company as possible.

"I have been in the Army going on 30 Years. I have seen the Army purchase lots of new equipment, but the best was our ACOG’s. It is a great asset to us. It brings a lot of my soldiers home to their families."
