Trijicon® Announces New Commercially Available VCOG 1-8x28 SCO

Trijicon® Announces New Commercially Available VCOG 1-8x28 SCO

Wixom, MI, - Trijicon®, Inc., global provider of innovative aiming solutions for the hunting, shooting, military, and law enforcement markets, is excited to introduce the addition of a commercially available version of the Variable Combat Optical Gunsight (VCOG®) 1-8x28 Squad Common Optic.

This new variant is functionally identical to the current United States Marine Corps Squad Common Optic (SCO) VCOG with only minor cosmetic changes to external laser etched markings. The body is forged from 7075-T6 aircraft aluminum-alloy to meet the rigorous demands of duty. Offering a true 1x power, the versatile magnification range is effective for both CQB and longer-range applications.

The VCOG 1-8x28 SCO features tethered turret covers, Tenebraex® flip caps, integrated base and LaRue Tactical® LT799 mount, eliminating the need for separate rings to provide rock-solid quick-detach mounting to any rail system while maintaining zero. As part of the development, MIL-STD-810G testing protocols were followed to deliver a nearly indestructible sighting system.

A first focal plane reticle allows users of the VCOG 1-8x28 SCO to rapidly estimate range and apply the correct hold throughout the magnification range. The illuminated red segmented circle MRAD tree reticle requested by the USMC offers 35 MRAD total travel in windage and elevation for any rifle platform or chambering. Illumination is powered by a single AA lithium battery with 11 user-adjustable settings: 2-night vision and 9-day settings, including 1 super-bright setting. 

Trijicon VCOG lenses are all fully multi-coated with broadband anti-reflective coatings.  This maximizes light transmission while exceeding the military’s requirements for abrasion resistance. The multi-coated lenses provide outstanding clarity and light transmission with zero distortion, making the VCOG ideal for combat and hard duty applications.
