Writer needed to test and review the Trijicon TARS rifle scope

This is quite a robust scope. This is the MOA version.

I am looking for a writer to do a thorough job of taking this scope through its paces.

================================================== =======

Trijicon®, Inc. Goes Long-Range with TARS™ High-Performance RifleScope

A brilliant solution for the precision target shooter, professional operator or long-range hunter, Trijicon introduces its TARS™ High-Performance RifleScope.

Attachment 6759

The Trijicon TARS (Tactical Advanced RifleScope) is a 3-15x variable magnification, 50 mm-objective, illuminated-reticle optic designed for tactical and sporting rifles. Premium-grade optics, exact adjustments, and innovative reticle systems allow users to engage targets at extreme ranges.

Best-quality glass is fully multi-coated to allow maximum light transmission. Optical engineering advancement produces a generous 3.3 inches of constant eye relief while decreasing overall scope length to 13.9 inches. Its 3x to 15x magnification range make it a viable choice for myriad applications, from LE and military operations to benchrest competition to varmint and big-game hunting.

The TARS features a patented illuminated-reticle system with 10 levels of intensity, including two for use with night-vision optics. Its non-forward emitting LED is much more efficient than current systems; One CR2032 battery provides 30,000 hours of use. Four reticle choices are available—an intuitive MOA reticle (Model 101), Trijicon-exclusive JW mil-square reticle (103) and two duplex versions (102 and 104). All are located in the first focal plane, so subtension values remain constant across the magnification range.

A robust, 34 mm main tube machined from aircraft-grade aluminum combined with Trijicon's mil-spec construction ensure TARS can handle severe recoil in the harshest environments. It is waterproof to 66 feet. Hydrophobic coatings on exposed lenses ensure clarity in wet conditions. Finger-adjustable turrets feature patent-pending lockable, tactile click adjustments for positive tracking and repeatability. A side-mounted parallax dial focuses from 10-feet to infinity. Removable flip-up range caps and sunshade are included.

With Trijicon's proven battlefield performance and uncompromising commitment to perfection, TARS will prove itself as a superior tactical riflescope for long-range marksmen.

For more information on TARS and the complete array of Brilliant Aiming Solutions™ for the hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement markets, contact Trijicon®, Inc. at (248) 960-7700 or visit www.trijicon.com.

Re: Writer needed to test and review the Trijicon TARS rifle scope

when the TARS debuted it REALLY caught my eye. It's nice to see US manufacturers step up & go head to head with the Europeans in the Optics category. To have the TARS offered in a MOA setup just puts the icing on the cake for me.

Is the LRH Store considering offering the TARS?

Re: Writer needed to test and review the Trijicon TARS rifle scope


I have an upcoming whitetail/mule deer hunt in Wyomng planned this year. I would love to put the scope to the test. The scope would be used on my 6.5-284, I am having built! It should be done the first part of June! Then starts the barrel break in and load development! I would be glad to help out! If you have any questions, please let me know!

Re: Writer needed to test and review the Trijicon TARS rifle scope

To bad they are failing in every other category, they keep pushing out optics for the mil procurement process and not putting enough focus on what the rest of us want. I love this company and the products and customer service are second to none, but how hard it is to but a turret on an accupoint or put a BDC in it for that matter? I do look forward to this review.

Based on past experience with Ernie Bishop, I have just selected him to write this review.

Thanks to all for your interest. There will be more optics review opportunities in the future so keep watching.
