Trijicon 5-50x56mm Long Range Scope — New and Powerful

Trijicon 5-50x56 scope accupower March Nightforce 10 times zoom long range optic new

At the 2018 NRA Show in Dallas last week, Trijicon unveiled a notable new scope that should interest Benchrest shooters and Long-Range competitors. The all-new Trijicon AccuPower 5-50x56mm Long Range Scope offers an impressive ten times zoom range, plus an illuminated reticle. This RS50 Series Second Focal Plane scope with 34mm main tube is offered in both MOA and MIL systems. The MOA version features 1/8 MOA clicks plus a reticle with 1 MOA subtensions at 40X power. The MIL version has 1/20 Milrad click values and a ranging style reticle with wind hold dot system. Both MOA and MIL versions have a full 100 MOA of elevation travel.

New Trijicon 5-50x56mm Scope Revealed at NRA Show in Dallas:

Credit Erik Cortina for providing this video.

With a $2700 MSRP, we expect Trijicon’s new 5-50X scope to have a “street price” of about $2400. That lines up with the NightForce 15-55x52mm Competition, now priced at $2352.00 on Amazon.

CLICK HERE for Trijicon Brochure with Full 5-50x56mm Specs »

The new Trijicon 5-50x56mm (RS50 Series) scope boasts some nice features. Employing extra-low dispersion glass, the scope offers high light transmission with minimal chromatic aberration. The magnification control lever can be moved to two different positions to suit the operator. Both MOA and MIL reticle styles are illuminated with 5 red and 5 green user-selectable brightness settings.

We hope to get our hands on one of these new Trijicon 5-50X scopes soon for testing. We’ll let you know how it stacks up against other high-magnification zoom scopes, such as the Vortex 10-60x52mm Golden Eagle, the Nightforce 15-55x52mm, and the March 5-50x56mm.

Trijicon 5-50x56 scope accupower March Nightforce 10 times zoom long range optic new

Please note, along with this 5-50x56mm scope, Trijicon has also introduced a 4.5-30x56mm RS30 Series scope. This 4.5-30X optic will be offered in both First Focal Plane and Second Focal Plane versions. SEE AccuPower Scope Brochure.

NRA Show Concludes in Houston

The 2013 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits has concluded, 70,000 attendees are headed home while some 550 exhibitors pack up their wares. Attendance at the NRA Show was strong, and the overall mood of NRA’s rank and file was positive. Jim Shepard of the Shooting Wire observed: “Outside the 142nd edition of the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, things were calm and peaceful. Inside, however, it was a booming expo and a series of meetings that were anything but conciliatory. In fact, the mood of attendees might best be described as encouraged by the recent defeats of the latest round of anti-gun legislation in Washington.”

NRA Show Highlights Day Two

One of the most popular sections of the show was the indoor Airgun range operated by Pyramyd Air. Visitors of all ages could enjoy trying their marksmanship skills at both reactive and paper targets.

NRA Show Highlights Day Three

Next year’s NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits will be held April 25-27 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

NRA Annual Meeting & Exhibits May 3-5 in Houston, Texas

Just two more days until the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits kicks off in Houston, Texas. This year’s 142nd Annual NRA convention is expected to have a record turn-out because of the current political situation. Paul Erhardt, Shooting Wire Editor, explains: “This year’s NRA Show is likely to be a blow-out of epic proportions thanks to a perfect storm of political climate and location (Houston). Turnout for the NRA Show could reach a new record and break the 70,000 mark. Not bad for a three-day event….”

There will be plenty to see and do at the NRA Show, with seminars, celebrity appearances, and banquets — along with priceless collections of firearms. Virtually all the major gunmakers in the country should have their latest products on display. In fact, there will be over 550 exhibitors whose displays will cover 400,000 square feet of exhibit hall space.
