Trijicon Quick Release Mounts with Q-Loc Technology

Trijicon® Inc., global provider of innovative aiming solutions for the hunting, shooting, military, and law enforcement markets, is proud to announce that quick release mounts with Trijicon® Q-LOC™ Technology are now available in a wide range of mounting solutions to fit nearly any optics platform.

Designed for the most discerning users, this line of premium specialty mounts features a proprietary design that offers both quick-release and return to zero. Trijicon’s mounts with
Q-LOC Technology are offered for Trijicon red dots, thermal optics, and a wide range of riflescopes.

Q-LOC Technology is a patented quick release optics mounting system, featuring multiple proprietary recoil lugs to ensure total rail engagement. Shooters can easily remove and re-attach an optic with a Q-LOC mount without the need to confirm zero. Heavy-duty springs enable one-handed operation while also ensuring secure retention under hard and repeated recoil. Q-LOC mounts feature compact, circular knob designs to minimize the hazards of gear snags while also facilitating one-handed mounting and removal.

All Trijicon mounts with Q-LOC Technology are manufactured in the U.S. from 6061-T6 aluminum with precision-cut dimensions to accommodate any platform and ensure optimal placement on MIL-STD 1913, NATO, non-mil spec, and even damaged rails.

“We are excited to bring a family of quick release mounts to shooters and hunters that are strong enough to match the durability of our optics,” said John Trull, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Trijicon. “We’ve applied the same precision in our manufacturing process for these mounts as we do our optics, as well as put them through the same rigorous Science of Brilliant testing, to make sure we’re delivering mounts that meet the standard of Trijicon quality.”

Trijicon's Bolt Action Mount w/ Trijicon Q-LOC™ Technology

Trijicon’s Bolt Action Mount w/ Trijicon Q-LOC™ Technology is designed to keep the optic as low as possible for hunting and long range precision rifle applications.

Trijicon® Q-LOC™ Technology is available for the following mounts:

–Bolt Action Mounts. Suitable for bolt action, lever action, pump action, autoloader, and single shot rifles with a scope rail, the Q-LOC Technology Bolt Action Mount is optimized for proper eye alignment on these rifle platforms. Bolt Action Mounts are available in two heights to accommodate scope objective lenses with sizes less than 42mm (1.06 in. height) up to 56mm (1.125 in. height). Models accommodate both 30mm and 34mm tube scopes.

–Cantilever Mounts. Designed with the perfect dimensions for optimal eye alignment on AR platform rifles, Cantilever Mounts are positioned higher than Bolt Action models for a proper AR cheek weld. Both mount styles are available in 1.535 in. and 1.590 in. heights to accommodate all riflescope objective sizes. The 1.535 in. Cantilever Mount is suitable for use with most clip-on thermal devices. Models accommodate both 30mm and 34mm tube scopes.

–ACOG® / VCOG® / Trijicon Electro Optics Mounts. Engineered for both the Compact and standard-size Trijicon ACOG®, as well as the Trijicon VCOG®, this family of mounts provides an optical axis height of 1.535 in., ideal for clip-on devices. The latest Trijicon REAP-IR® and IR-HUNTER® thermal optic models are also equipped with these quick-release mounts.

–Red Dot Mounts. Available in Low, Full Co-Witness, Lower 1/3 Co-Witness, and 45 Degree Offset, this family of mounts is specifically designed for the Trijicon RMR®, SRO®, and MRO® families of red dot sights. For Full Co-Witness models, the backup iron sights and the red dot align to create the sight picture when looking through the center of the optic. When looking through the center of the optic with the Lower 1/3 Co-Witness mount, the backup iron sights will appear in the lower portion of the sight picture. Finally, the 45 Degree Offset mounts provide users with a low-profile and ambidextrous mounting solution for backup red dots.

Trijicon quick release mounts with Trijicon Q-LOC Technology are in stock and shipping to retailers and shooting sports distributors now!

HOW TO: Prepare to Shoot in Cold Weather

A hunting scenario a lot of people can’t control, that they don’t necessarily think as much about is, their clothing in a hunting situation. They’ve spent all summer practicing at the range, in the early fall, they’re wearing a light jacket, light clothing. Then next thing you know, they’re out in a hunting situation, and it is cold, they’ve got tons of gear on, and they’ve put gloves on for the first time. They’ve never pulled the trigger with the gloves! They’ve never raised their handgun into a  position to take a shot with all that clothes on and it’s binding and it feels different and the entire summer of practice, and the entire early fall, it kind of goes out the window.

We highly suggest spending some time shooting with gloves if you think you’re going to be wearing gloves in a hunting situation. We know when it’s cold, we’re gonna have our gloves on. Because the entire handgun is going to feel different. From how you load it, to how the trigger feels, to how you reload. Everything about it is gonna be a little more cumbersome and you’re gonna feel like you’re fumbling a little bit, so don’t forget to practice with your gloves on. And if you’ll spend some time preparing for that different feel, it will pay off. You know, because repetitive practice in anything, is gonna help you be more successful.

How-To Perfect Your Trigger Pull


Trigger pull and the follow-through in a hunting situation with a handgun to us are two really important things. They vastly differ probably from your competitive shooters and how they would focus on it and what they would be thinking about, but in a hunting situation, it is one shot, one kill in a perfect world. That trigger pull is something on a handgun that’s really different than a rifle or your shotgun. It’s a lot longer, it’s a lot more drawn out, and staying through it, for lack of a better word, is something really key in a hunting situation.

We look at a lot of our misses on the range and even bad shots when we’ve been hunting. It’s been a forced fast pull of the trigger, a jerk, in our mind with that small barrel, you’re pulling everything left or down in a lot of those situations. We think that’s what you want to avoid and obviously the way to avoid that is practice and kind of concentrating going through it. That motion and that practice will pay off and help you begin to focus on that after the boom and staying down and through on that target and not try to peek link in golf. When you peek, you top the golf ball.  If you peek right at that moment of truth, when you’re expecting that gun to go off, your aiming point is gonna differ.

So trigger pull, good slow follow through in your mind, make it all good one motion staying down on the target.  We think it’d be a big key thing for guys that are picking up handgun hunting to help raise their success.

Trijicon’s New Pistol Optic

The Specialized Reflex Optic

 

Trijicon®, Inc., global provider of innovative aiming solutions for the hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement markets, is excited to introduce a new sight that is easy to shoot, easy to use, and easy to trust. The new Trijicon Specialized Reflex Optic or Trijicon SRO™ is a red dot style sight specifically designed for pistols and optimized for target and competition shooting.

With a large clear lens, and an unobstructed field of view, the SRO enables quick, simple dot acquisition for effortless dot tracking during recoil. These benefits allow the shooter to keep focus on the target, which significantly increases shooting speed and accuracy.

The SRO uses the same mounting footprint as the Trijicon RMR®, which means the sight can be easily mounted on many popular red-dot-ready pistols and existing RMR® mounts. The optic is designed to work with suppressor height iron sights in the same way as the industry-leading RMR®.

The top-loading battery compartment allows easy battery replacement without removing the sight from the pistol. The parallax-free SRO has intuitive illumination control for dot brightness, including both manual and automatic dot brightness settings and a new brightness Lock-In feature. A CR2032 battery powers the optic for 3 years on setting 4 of 8.

 

The SRO is manufactured in Wixom, MI with forged 7075 aluminum and tempered glass for durability that can be trusted. The wide field of view and clear lens with a clean, crisp dot keeps your focus on the target to improve shooting accuracy, making the SRO a great choice in any application.

Trijicon also updated the main housing to include an integrated Picatinny rail interface for mounting optional accessories, such as a Trijicon RMR®. The battery compartment has been redesigned to a ruggedized, top-loading compartment with an easy-to-use thumbscrew to allow simpler night-time operation.

All Trijicon REAP-IR optics feature 640×480 resolution, 12-micron thermal sensors and 60 Hz frame rates.
