TA11-GH New Features and Changes
The biggest two changes to the TA11-GH are the new reticle design and the larger, finger-adjustable
The TA11-GH has a green fiber-optic pipe and larger external knob caps.
I have been shooting TA11's since 2003. The conventional TA11 donut reticle is aimed by
zeroing it at 100 yards at the top of the donut; then the center will be on at about 200-250, the
bottom of the donut at 300, and the stadia lines start at about 375-400 yards. This leads to a
somewhat complicated and imprecise sight picture in the 275-400 yard regime. The bottom of the
donut can cover the target, and the stadia lines are relatively thick. The TA11-GH addresses this
with its horseshoe-dot reticle by clearing out the reticle in the 200-300 yard regime. Compared to
the donut, the horse-shoe is thinner and obscures less. There is a dot signifying the center of the
dot (ie, your 100 yard zero). Instead of using the bottom of the donut, the stadia line starts
with a bare "post" for 300 yards. This simplifies and improves the sight picture from 200-400
yards and is better than the donut, in my opinion. However, it does leave out any particular
200-yard aiming point. The bullet will never rise above the center dot, so your maximum
point-blank range is now indicated by a blank spot in the reticle between the center dot at
the 300-meter line.
The TA11-GH has this reticle, but with a green instead of red reticle center.
The new TA11-GH sports larger, finger-adjustable knobs.
The new TA11-GH has larger knob caps covering larger, finger-adjustable windage and elevation
knobs. There are flat-out easier to use. The knob clicks appeared to be 1/2 MOA but we were not
able to measure them precisely. I have never found ACOG clicks to be very consistent-- once you
get it zeroed you just leave it, so I don't know that I recommend during these on the fly, while
shooting. The new big knobs have very firm clicks, so even if a knob cap is lost, the knobs
should reasonably stay in place.
