US DoD awards Trijicon contract for Rifle Combat Optics

The US Department of Defence (DoD) has awarded Trijicon a $41,218,080 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the remanufacture of Rifle Combat Optics (RCOs).

This contract provides for the materials, labor, equipment, facilities and missing/repair parts necessary to inspect, diagnose, test and restore the RCOs.

Work will be performed in Wixom, Michigan, and is expected to be completed by April 2025.

This contract has a five-year ordering period with a maximum value of $41,218,080. Fiscal 2020 operations and maintenance (Marine Corps) in the amount of $8,160,000 will be obligated at the time of award for the first task order and will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

Since the ACOG® became the Official Rifle Combat Optic (RCO) of the US Marine Corps in 2004, Trijicon has been working with more US Military partnerships—including the RMR® Type 2 being selected as the official USSOCOM Miniature Aiming System Day Optics Program.
