    Hey guys, thought I'd share my experience buying a knock-on trijicon ACOG from wish.com...

    I paid $160ish for the model with the red dot attached. It took 5 days to arrive. Construction seemed very solid and it attached perfectly to my ACR. Ordered two months ago and finally got a chance to test out on some land. Only tested a few clips @ 150ish yards since I didn't have any hearing protection. My shaky ass was able to consistently peg a 5 gallon bucket while standing. While I probably wouldn't trust my life with it, at 1/10th the price, I think it was a good buy just for some target practice fun.

    No magnification, just a red dot correct? ACR is a nice piece!

    Just saw this. It's a trijicon 4x32 ACOG with a standard red dot above it.

    Love the ACR, well built and solid.

    ACR is a true gas piston design, which allows for a folding buttstock. If ai was actually going to buy (not build) an AR, that is the rifle I would buy.
    Not like the useless cheap gas piston kits offered on ARs that malfunction, and dont allow for the use of a bufferless spring so you can fold the stock.

    Yup, it's nice. I've got the enhanced version with folding and telescoping stock. Also nice that it's ambidextrous. My brother bought an AR at the same time. I was looking for an AR as well, but was sold as soon as I held the ACR.

    Sig makes a nice version of the ACR also. Both are badass!
