AR-308 – Millett TRS-1 Scope Specifications and Details

In my last post, we took  a look at the features and overall fit/finish for the Millett TRS-1 tactical scope. In this post, we’ll get into more details and look at the specs for this scope.

When you purchase the Millett TRS-1 scope, you get the following:

  1. Scope
  2. Dust caps (for objective and eyepiece) – spring loaded
  3. Extended sun shade
  4. Cleaning cloth and allen key
  5. User’s manual
  6. Battery (or illuminated reticle)
  7. Cloth cover for scope (with elastic)

This scope is machined from a one-piece billet, and is heat treated. The 30mm body provides enhanced MOA adjustment range, and a more solid interface between the scope and mount/rifle. The adjustment rings for windage, elevation, side focus, power range, reticle illumination, and diopter all allow a very positive grip, and feel solid when adjusted. The lock rings for windage/elevation are one of my favorite attributes for this scope.

The following table outlines the technical specifications for this scope. The manual (see link below) for this scope provides useful information such as mil to MOA, mounting instructions, and more. The scope that I have (Millett part # BK81008) has 1/10 mil clicks and a mil-dotbar reticle. I’m used to the more conventional (non-military) 1/4 or 1/8 MOA and fine reticle type of scope – so using this Millett scope will be a learning experience for me. I’m looking forward to learning how to quickly calculate adjustments and “dope” the scope for long range hunting and shooting. I like to try and pick off small targets (apples, etc) at 200+ yards, and that will take some practice with this setup!

For more information about this scope, you can download the manual HERE. Overall- this scope seems to provide a lot of value for the price. It has great fit/finish, and the image is very clear even at max (16x) power. I’ll keep you all posted when I get range results and more field time!

Next, we’ll look at mounting this scope on the DPMS LR-308B rifle!

  1. I was looking at using a 4-12x40mm or a 4-9x40mm Leupold scope on a AR-15. Wanted to be able to shoot from 50 yards to 600 yards.
    Which do recommend?

  2. I know this is the wrong place for a question, but it’s the only one I found. I just bought a DPMS Gll Bull 24″, as I want to do some long range shooting. I’m a 72 year old disabled vet that would like to see if I still have what it takes. I have been looking for a long range scope with some kind of RED dot-circle, etc. Millett has one I really like, but I can find one of their scopes in about a 6x40x56 or something in that area with the red in the reticle. I’m only able to see the color RED for a perfect shot in scopes anymore.(Old Age) I have written others, but they don’t answer. I hope you can help.
    thank you & sorry for putting this in the wrong place.
