    Trijicon Credo vs Accupower

    So a bunch of you saw my question about the Vortex Viper. Iíve backed away from it a little. I am now researching Trijicon Accupower 1-8 vs new Trijicon Credo. 1-8. The Accupower has been discontinued but Iíve seen them for $869. The new Credo offers green and red but itís $1299. Does anyone know if the new Credo is worth $430 more than the Accupower? Iím really trying to make a good decision here and Iím relying heavily on the experience of the members of this forum to help me! I do know that the Nightforce NX-8 and the ATACR are excellent but I really donít want to spend that much. Please share your knowledge and experience on these optics.

    Nope. Honestly go look at the Vudu 1-8x, I sold my Accupower 1-8x for that.

    I've also been really impressed by the Vudus that have passed through our store. They are much better than I expected.

    Haven't used the LPVO VUDU but I was very pleasantly surprised by my 5-25x FWIW

    I ended up buying a Trijicon Accupower 4-16x50! I'm putting it on my Daniel Defense Ambush .308. I am taking the ACOG TA-11 that was on it and putting it on my DDM4V7 Milspec. It should work fine except that the BDC on it is for .308. I rarely shoot it past 100 yards anyway!

    Buyer beware

    I purchased the Trijicon accupower 1-8 x 34, on paper the best scope but in reality after zero the turrets did not realign. I contacted Trijicon and sent it back to them. They refused to fix and replace. They could have saved me 60 bucks shipping. Luckily I purchased from Brownells but why should they have to eat it. Trijicon is dead to me.
    Buy the Nightforce or if money is an issue get the Primary Arms.

    Please excuse any grammatical or semtex errors, sent from my remote detonation device.

    I second this question. I too am interested. My Accupower 1-8x28mm has been flawless and I love it. Great glass, bright reticle, but OK yeah it IS a big chunky, but not a huge deal.

    I have two Accupowerís and theyíre great. Iíve had one since it first came out. Great glass, reticle is bright, and itís been durable through quite a few 3gun matches over the past few years. The credo does have a newer reticle where it is a hollow cross with a dot. So if youíre into printing tight groups at 100 or youíre into a 100yd zero or a true 200yd zero then the credo will be better. Iíve side by side compared a credo and the Accupower at a match and itís the same brightness with red. Green doesnít really work yet in ffp optics. The led technology isnít there yet.
