Way back in 1981, Trijicon began it’s path on the road to successfully supplying their customers with the Tritium powered optics they demand. While visiting South Africa, Glyn Bindon met one of his brother’s friends who made sights for guns. After a brief discussion, Bindon decided he would try and sell them as a side job, in America. In essence, he agreed to be a salesman for his brother’s friend.
The name of the product was Armson, and the first sale came to be in 1983. With similarities to a rifle scope used in Vietnam during a raid in 1970, the Armson OEG red dot had more powerful features and a variety of mounting options on rifles and shotguns. The Armson OEG was set in stores for sale in 1983.
In 1985, Bindon began to sell the first Tritium reticle riflescope. During this time he was also considering a name change to Trijicon. The ACOG came to be in 1987. ACOG stands for Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight. In almost no time, the United States Army included this piece of equipment in the Advanced Combat Rifle Program.
From 1988 onwards, Trijicon has become a top provider for the FBI, the US Army and many others. In 1992, the BAC, Bindon Aiming Concept was launched. The German Swat and US Navy Seals adopted this ACOG as their main piece. The sales began climbing and soon hunting sights were included in the product line-up.
Since Bindon’s death, nothing has stopped Trijicon from continuing to advance in the optics field. The US Marine Corp has made Trijicon the primary product for use, otherwise known as RCO (Rifle Combat Optic).
