One of the most important components of a good long range rifle is the scope. It goes without saying that a scope must hold zero in order for a rifle to shoot tight groups. The quality of the optics, the repeatability and accuracy of the windage/elevation adjustments, and other factors also play a key role in the overall performance of the rifle.
The Millett TRS-1 tactical scope fills an important segment in the market for tactical scopes – a mid price point scope with all of the features that a typical AR shooter would expect, great optical quality, 30mm tube, and all that for a very reasonable price. Let’s look at what’s included with this package (scope rings shown not included in scope package)
This video should give you a good “up close and personal” view of the features and fit/finish for this scope. I’ve used a couple examples of this scope, and have found them to be very clear- my easily focusing on both the target and the reticle – not always the case for me since I wear glasses and that seems to complicate focus issues to an extent. Light gathering is also great. Looking forward to seeing how this scope will perform on the AR-308 rifle as we work our way through testing handloads!
