    I have the TA31RCO-M150CP on my M-4gery and love it. This optic was perfect for my use on this rifle. The scope has had some bumps and bangs but always holds zero. This is my truck gun when on trips. The wife thinks I'm crazy taking it along when just making short trips but you never know.

    an idiot can break anything and like anything else an acog is a mechanical device and can fail. Point is that theres nothing on the market that will take the beating these will without failing long before an acog. Sure you can buy some bushnell or other optical sight for a 1/5 of what an acog cost. But which do you want to trust your familys life to? Which will hold up to more abuse? Which will have better low light performance? Acogs are expensive but i guess you have to decide like when buying a scope. What means more to you? A good quality scope or a piece of chrome for your harley!

    After having the ACOG for sometime, I have realized that it was worth every one of the 106,000 cents.

    I've said it before in an ACOG thread, and I'll say it again.

    I broke one (TA31F). Ocular lens chipped from the top of the housing down about a third of the way into the lens....on the inside of the optic.

    Finally gave up after requesting manufacturer support and being denied and took the thing apart. Removed the chip and accompanying glass dust, wiped the lens down and put it all back together.

    I take care of my gear, it was never dropped or abused, although I did buy it used in LNIB condition.

    Stuff happens, even bomb proof falls apart occasionally.

    Still.......I bought another. TA33 with the green horseshoe and I love it even more than the TA31F. Better eye relief, less magnification and the BAC works like a charm from 3 yards to 600. Yes, I've actually ran it to 600 too on a 66% IPSC steel target. Consistent hits were not a problem with my 16" middy.

    Like others have said, I thought the glass was mediocre.

    Would I buy another? Possibly.
