Trijicon Optics (ACOGS)

Call or e-mail Trijicon with the model number and serial number to verify if it's authentic or a knock-off scope. Knock-offs tend to have the same serial number on all of them. or at (800)338-0563

Customer Service Hours
M-F 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST

Some conventional wisdom for identifying fake ACOGs:
- Should have the digital square.
- "Tririum" = fake.
- A real ACOG will have tritium and be illuminated in the dark.
