Odds 'n Sods:

I was disappointed to learn that Trijicon is no longer providing any repair or refurbishment services for their older-generation 1" tube scopes. (These scopes had bee sourced in Japan and then they added their tritium elements.) One of my original scopes--a Trijicon "3-9x40 Wide" with three color elements I had bought around 1993--finally had its radioactive elements fade out past the point of usefulness. (The half-life of tritium is 11.2 years.) Sadly, Trijicon no longer replaces the elements for these scopes, even for a fee. To rectify this, they did offer me a 50% discount on a new scope, so I'm ordering a "TR-20 Trijicon AccuPoint 3-9x40 Riflescope, Matte Black, with Amber Triangle Reticle." I'm still a big believer in Trijicon scopes (I now own nine of them, mostly ACOGs), but I recognize that entropy is unavoidable. FWIW, I still consider a Trijicon scope the next best thing to owning a starlight scope.
