Precision Accuracy with Great Visibility
New for 2017, Trijicon has answered the call for a more precision HD night sight, the HD XR. Trijicon’s HD sights have become increasingly popular amongst concealed carry holders, police officers, and professional shooters. Along with their super strong construction, they offer great visibility in any lighting condition. While many like the larger front dot, some still prefer a thinner front post wanting to see daylight on either side. Trijicon’s HD XR maintains the features that have made the HD so popular while allowing for a thinner front sight.
Trijicon’s new HD XR allows for an expanded field of view and a more precise sight picture due to the front sight. Thinner, (.122in) it allows for space on either side of a properly aligned front sight, improving accuracy at any range. Smaller, it covers less of the target as ranges extend for increased precision. Retaining the bright orange or yellow ring for immediate visibility it remains fast to target and easy to see under any condition. Capped with a sapphire jewel, tritium lamps provide evenly distributed light for a great sight picture in low light shooting situations. A steeply hooked front surface on the rear sight continues to facilitate emergency slide manipulation while its wide “U” notch makes it easy to line up the front sight under any condition.
HD Night Sights are designed to excel under the most demanding conditions by placing primary emphasis on faster front sight acquisition. They incorporate enhanced front sight visibility with a de-emphasised rear sight. Upfront, a tritium lamp lies within an extra-large, brightly coloured (yellow or orange) dot area that provides a distinctive sighting picture. In addition, special photo luminescent (glow-in-the-dark) powder in the paint aids in faster front sight acquisition during transitional lighting operations. The rear sight uses an enhanced hook to facilitate single-handed slide operation or use under field expedient conditions.
Furthermore, Trijicon’s VCOG 1-6x24mm (Variable Combat Optical Gunsight) is now available with two new reticles that provide extreme versatility across multiple platforms and calibres. The new Segmented Circle MIL and Segmented Circle MOA reticles allow operators and law enforcement officers to engage at CQB-distance and long-range with confidence and precision.
The Trijicon VCOG is machined from a 7075-T6 aluminium forging and given a Mil Spec, hard-coat anodised finish. There is a full 90 MOA of windage and elevation adjustment with 0.25 MOA or 0.1 MIL per click to get almost any weapon system on target.
Lenses are all fully multicoated with a broadband anti-reflective coating that maximises light transmission while meeting and beating the military’s requirements for abrasion resistance. The scope maintains a constant four inches of eye relief throughout its first focal plane magnification range and an oversized and knurled adjustment knob makes finding the perfect power setting easy and fast, even with gloved hands.
The VCOG undergoes rigorous shock and vibration testing to ensure it meets the standards of a Trijicon brand optic. The VCOG is waterproof to 66ft and its illumination electronics are Mil Spec tough. Extra-thick tube walls give the VCOG a toughness that is needed. Also tested for smoothness and long-term durability is the optic’s magnification system—the VCOG offers shooters an outstanding service life under the most rigorous conditions.
