One is a high performance riflescope while the other is a scope manufacturing company. Here is a brief breakdown.

Trijicon and Elcan Optics have long been known as manufacturers and distributors of some of the best and most reliable riflescopes and other arms related products. Seeing as their products are quite many, it is easy to experience confusion when trying to find a product.

Trijicon ACOG

The Trijicon ACOG is actually a device made by Trijicon, and it is used as a high performance scope by recreational and even professional users. It is an exceptional build that is actually used by the US Military due to its reliability and versatility.

Unlike most devices that have a specific reticle size, the Trijicon ACOG comes with the ability to self-adjust so that you do not have to, and so that target acquisition is of the highest precision. It also has self-adjusting brightness levels, making sure that you experience maximum light both during the day and at night.

Since it is solar powered, you have no need for a battery, but it comes with one for use during the night.

Elcan Optics

This company has made a name for itself as one of the most reliable scope manufactures, with its smallest and simplest sight outdoing a good number of scopes from other manufacturers. Below is a review of one of its smallest but most popular riflescopes.

Elcan Specter OS4x

Unlike most other riflescopes that do well in shooting ranges and in short range applications, the Elcan Specter OS4x was designed and developed with combat in mind. It features an exceptionally strong build and compact body for great portability and unmatched durability.

It comes with a 32mm objective lens which provides a considerably wide field of view. In addition, the lens is made using high quality material that delivers an impressively clear and crisp line of vision which allows for easy target acquisition. This scope is good to use over short, medium and long ranges, delivering the same amount of precision in either.

It comes with two reticles, one of which is a 1.5 MOA dot while the other is a 6 MOA dot. This feature is largely what makes the scope ideal for use over short and long ranges. For brightness, it comes with a total of 10 settings. 5 are ideal for using during the day while 5 are made to be compatible with night vision. It is also a fully water and dust proof device that can be used in any setting. For battery life, it promises a length of 3,000 hours on the lowest brightness setting.
