Without doubt, with the rise in the interest and use of both centrefire and rimfire AR15-style rifles and similar, so has risen the low power compact scope. Let’s face it, something like an S&W 15/22 does not need a big and high power optic; better something in the 1-4 or 1-6x24 spec is ideal. There are numerous companies making this sort of equipment and one such is Trinity Force, perhaps better known for their AR accessories. But a couple of years ago they launched a 1-4x24 with QD mount and a micro red dot sight that bolted on top and at the price it proved popular!
I have a similar spec optic from Vortex, from their PST range, but something with a bit more mag would seem ideal. What I would really like their Razor 1-6x24, however, at over £1000 I cannot justify it. I was thinking of getting their new 1-6 Strike Eagle when North West Custom Parts sent me the new Trinity Force 1-6x24 Legacy. This one takes some of its cues from the Razor as it has large, mid-height, tactical turrets and a larger eyepiece bell. That extra x2 mag range does make a difference with few size/weight penalties.
The eyepiece bell is large with a commensurate larger magnification ring, which is aggressively slotted for easy operation, even with gloves. At the rear is a fast-focus eyepiece. Turrets are un-capped, so instantly dialable; operation of the drums is firm, so no worries about them accidently moving. Click values are ½-MOA at 100 yards and divided into 15 x 2MOA divisions, sub-dived into 4 x ½ MOA.
Windage is split 0-7 in either direction, making winding in corrections simpler, divisions are the same as elevation. Turrets can be slipped to 0 by undoing three, small Allen screws in the rim. Annoyingly, there’s no fixed datum point on the saddle, so you need to guess where it is!
Reticle choice goes to the ‘P4 Sniper’ and the Deltex, I had the latter, which is a bit different! It looks like the inverted-T shape of the old German #4 but above the centre cross is an inverted, open V for short range, fast reaction shooting.
Being open, it does not obscure the aim point for longer-range use. There are four hash lines on each of the inner arms, each is spaced 5MOA apart, with the windage ones also being of different heights; 2, 3, 4 and 5 MOA. So the ret can be used for ranging similar to Mil-Dot and also for hold over.
