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.
Here's a look at the new optic being tested during Media Day at the Range.
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.
