Bought my 1st ACOG...

I picked up a barely used 4x32 tan ACOG with the green chevron reticle for a grand yesterday, I was looking at them on SWFAs sample list the other day & almost bought one from them that was in the $1300 range. The guy said that Trijicon just recently got rid of their MAP pricing & that prices are coming down.
Ill post a pic of it on my ACR tomorrow.
What do you guys think?? Did I do good?

Is it a surplus or a commercial acog ?. I've found a handful of 4x32 acogs with chevron ( red ) for $500 each that were "surplus". Damn nice cqb sights.

Green chevron is most likely commercial.

I would stray away from a well used deployment ACOG. ACOGs are durable, but chance are the tritium is toast and there is a higher chance that there will be issues with the elevation/windage adjustments.

Congrats on your purchase!

Box and paperwork?

Acog's are sweet. Have 2, but it helps to know and have all the above.

Enjoy. You will want another.

I liked my ACOG a lot in the years after I bought one (late 1990's) but with aging eyes and no diopter adjustment my ACOG now has only limited usefulness for me.

Agreed. As pricey as they are they're amazing optics. Hard to go back to anything else IMO.
