Hi guys, I have a buddy stationed in Iraq that was issued an ACOG TA31F but does not know exactly how to use it. I explained how to use the chevron and corresponding hash marks as both range finders and BDC but I guess he wants to hear it or read it from the horse's mouth.

I actually own this scope but must have lost my manual in the move to my new house. So does any one have a scanned copy or PDF of the manual handy that I could forward to my friend?

Not a manual, but it could help explain some of the features: http://www.armyproperty.com/Equipment-Info/ACOG.pdf

PS. strange enough, the TA31F manual does not explain the "F" reticle (chervon)!! ha ha ha....

PPS. Here is the PDF manual of the ECOS version (http://www.trijicon.com/dmgnt_files/070305_ECOS_Manual.pdf), it DOES explain those BDC marks, representing 19" shoulder-to-shoulder @ distances tho. I found THIS to be a much better manual than the TA31F one.

BTW, I can't say enough about PMT's ACOG lens cover... I enjoy mine A LOT... to be able to cover up the obj lens and use it as a 1x red-dot sight... this is WAY fast, once you are trained on it.

Thanks for the ECOS manuel! I just bought the ECOS and this helps a lot.

sorry for being dense, do you mean using the collector as a bead-style sight?

Well according to the video on sighting it, ACOG's are supposed to be zero'd at 100 meters, not 100 yards. So that means I have to re-zero my TA31F for meters, but Angeles is set-up in yards. Anyone got any tips, or know a range where they are set-up in meters?
