Nope. Most people don't get rid of ACOGs if they have them, unless maybe they are on the bounds of homelessness or have to bail their kid outta jail, etc.

And these 5.5X ACOG ("TA55") versions are also not that common - and ACOGS of all flavors are in high demand by our boys in the sandbox.

You'll likely have to buy new, go to http://www.swfa.com Also continue to check the optics subforum on AR15.COM's Equipment Exchange, there may be one popping up occasionally.

A somewhat similar alternative (though even more scarce) is the 6X Elcan "HiMag" scope - looks like the standard 3.4X Elcan scope many of us have one or more of, about 1+" longer though.

Now, for less than the price you'd be paying for the either of the above scopes ($1400ish) you can get an IOR Valdada 1.5-8X scope or their 2-12X scope. Both are built like a tank, with the former being a bit more compact and approx same or smaller form-factor than the ACOG TA55 or Elcan HiMag.

Thanks for the info. Are these other scopes you speak of 50mm? I have people quoting me prices of $1000 for them but can not get them in stock :rolleyes: I'm just stuck on the TA55A because of the chevron and .308 bullet drop. I missed one on ebay a week ago that went for $960 :(

I have a TA01B which is the 4x32 with the 308 reticle.
Not sure that I would sell it though as I have not really had a chance to zero it yet.

I also have a 308 Elcan and a Leupold 3.5-10 M3 for the same gun.
It's just a matter of deciding what's going to stay before I re-task the other optics.
