    Finally had a chance to take out the TR24 1-4x and sight it in. The model is the red triangle recticle. It is mounted on a BCM mid-length upper. The scope sits atop a Larue QD mount with Burris Extreme Rings. The scope does sit slightly higher than 1.5" with the combo I have, but did not cause any issues with check weld. I did move the scope mount 1 notch back at the range and found that to be perfect for me.

    I was shooting @ 100 yards on a fairly windy day sitting at the bench using a Harris bi-pod. At times it was windy enough to blow my stapler and stack of targets off the bench. The ammo was American Eagle XM193. I used my left hand under the stock for additional stability. I was not rapid firing, but the guy next to me did comment on how fast I was blasting through my rounds.

    Here is an example of the first target before making any adjustments. I was using Redfield Precision sight in targets and this is one of the smaller corner diamonds.

    The red triangle aiming point did not require much time to get used to...although it was a different experience for me compared to a German crosshair recticle. The red triangle was very easy to see and seemed to allow faster follow up shots for me. The Larue QD base allowed me to remove the scope, test out my iron sights and then replace the scope without losing zero to the amazement of the guy next to me. The glass was very crisp and clear.

    Before my purchase I was torn between an Aimpoint and the Trijicon. I can say now that I have no regrets and I am very pleased with the scope. The adjustment knobs had a nice positive click to them and the ability to re-set to zero by pulling up on the turret is a nice feature. If anyone is looking for a scope that built to last and is always on without needing batteries, the TR24 is the way to go.

    The TR24 and Larue QD mount are definitely worthy additions to a top-quality BCM middy upper. That's beautiful shooting at 100 yds. in wind. Congratulations and thanks for posting the review.
