For the last 11 years, Field & Stream editors have rigorously tested and evaluated hundreds of new gear items each year to determine which items truly stand out in the industry. Trijicon, Inc.® is proud to announce that its new self-illuminated AccuPoint™ 3-9x40 Riflescope with crosshair reticle rose above the competition, and was named Field & Stream's "Best of the Best" Big Game Optic of the Year for 2008.
The Trijicon AccuPoint 3-9x40 Riflescope featuring a Mil-Dot crosshair with amber dot (Model # TR20-2) combines self-illumination with precision crosshairs, giving hunters and shooters the best of both worlds in any light.
The industry's only battery-free illuminated crosshair reticle features tritium technology and fiber optics that provide precise amber illumination where the crosshairs intersect for effective aiming and optimum target clarity, regardless of available light. Part of an acclaimed new series of Trijicon AccuPoint riflescopes utilizing a crosshair reticle, it also features Trijicon's newly updated Manual Brightness Adjustment Override, which allows the user to shade the fiber optics during daylight - for the option of decreasing the brightness of the illuminated reticle during increased light situations.
According to Field & Stream, the Best of the Best awards are judged by an expert optics panel, including Field & Stream contributing editor Thomas McIntyre, Dave Paullin, a retired biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, LeRoy Van Buggenum, a Wyoming rancher, hunter, varmint caller, reloader and all-around gun and optics nut and Sam Western, a distinguished outdoor writer and big-game guide. The expert panel rigorously tests each riflescope submitted - including freezing the scopes overnight, dropping the scopes into a bucket of water and shooting groupings with each scope in various lighting conditions. Trijicon's 3-9x40 AccuPoint Crosshair scope impressed panelists with its compactness, simplicity and positive adjustment clicks, making the Trijicon riflescope the top choice for longer ranges and dangerous game.
