Thanks.Mark said:Hey Chris,
First of all, congratulations; that is a sweet looking machine!
No, I was pretty much sold on the post/triangle from the beginning. I tried out a guy's TR21 at a 3 gun match and found the post/triangle to be very quick and easy to use.I have also been looking at that scope and have a couple questions if you don't mind.
* I see you picked the triangle post reticle, did you also look at the TR243G?
Just in the house looking around the room. I think the tritium and fiber optics illumination is about as close to perfect as you can get. The fiber optics automatically adjust the reticle brightness for the existing light condition, but it still has a manual override to adjust it down if you think it's too bright.The tritium seem dim at first but it is clearly visible in the dark without being too distracting when looking for targets in very low light. The only downside is the tritium will eventually get dim.* Have you tried it in low light? If so, how does the tritium-fiber system work?
I don't see why not. Just looking around with both eyes open with it seems fine, but very close objects have slight magnification. not enough to make it a problem in my opinion though. The real test will be this weekend at my next 3 gun match.* Since you got the true 1X, do you think it will function well in place of a red dot?
3 gun is a lot of fun. I highly recommend you try it out.My primary application is hunting hogs, but there are so many 3-gun and other competitions here in the DFW area that I'm tempted to start training.
You are very welcome.Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
I shot it at the range the last two weekends and really love the triangle. It is big enough to pick up easily but very precise with the scope zeroed at the tip of the triangle. The triangle is also very sharp and although it can get very bright it doesn't lose it's sharpness like the recticles in an aimpoint or EOTech can when their brightness is set too high.scooby&thesig said:Chris you doucheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!! My spre mount has been gathering dust waiting for my 24g. Tell me that baby isn't sweet as hell. Mark, when I was playing with the tr24 german, I really did not like how small the illuminated dot was. Low light in my opinion is extremely good and the green is the fastest color to pick up in low and bright light. The 1x is not true 1x around 5ish yards or less, it is more like 1.5. I will be grabbing the triangle post for the following reasons: Triangle, big object for quick acquisition, triangle for precision (tip zeroed for 100yrds). Annnnd I just like it. If you google "TR24 review" you can find different pics and opinions of both models as well as the different colors.
Glad to hear a after shooting review. I think if trijicon put ranging lines across the "post" that would be the icing, as I think the scope is fantastic. If you can post some power pics looking at the same object that would be great. Annnnd one more thing...... can you weigh your setup? I am curious to see what it weighs now. Good luck on your match man!C Swimm said:I shot it at the range the last two weekends and really love the triangle.

The glass is amazingly clear and sharp. I like it so much I just ordered an Accupoint TR23-2G 5-20x50mm for my M1A.
