Trijicon VCOG® Line Expanded with NEW 1-8x28

We are excited to introduce the addition of the Variable Combat Optical Gunsight (VCOG®) 1-8x28. 

The Trijicon VCOG 1-8x28 development was driven by requests from the U.S. military that recognize the benefits of its rugged design, outstanding glass quality, and extended magnification range.  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 features an integrated mounting adapter, eliminating the need for separate rings to provide fast and easy mounting to any rail system while maintaining zero.  As part of the development, MIL-STD-810G testing protocol was followed to deliver a nearly indestructible sighting system.

A first focal plane reticle allows users of the VCOG 1-8x28 to rapidly estimate range and apply the correct hold throughout the magnification range. The illuminated red segmented circle reticle with 120 MOA of total travel in windage and elevation is available in both MOA and MRAD to work with 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.  

Similar to the original Trijicon VCOG 1-6x24, the 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.
