Overview of the Charlie TARAC (Target Acquisition)
The Charlie is an optical accessory that adds up to 120+ MILs (or 400 MOA) to scopes without having to change rails, rings, cheek piece, or 100 yard zero via mirrors. Shoot with full magnification. MIL or MOA (true not shooter’s) is built to order.
Keep Your 100 Yard Zero
The Charlie Tarac shifts an incoming target image with mirrors (like a periscope) to add a specific MIL or MOA value. Instead of tilting the scope, requiring slanted rails, elevated scope rings, and changing your cheek position (a real pain in the neck), the Charlie shifts the target image optically (via mirrors) so you change nothing. With the Charlie, set your rifle, rail, rings, and cheek position, to 100 yards, and add the Charlie only when you need to shoot extreme long range or for night operations. “A 100 yard zero is a shooter’s lifeline.” Ken Decker, a former sniper with 3rd Ranger Battalion.
Shoot ELR with full magnification
The Charlie is a standalone device that works as an accessory to your optic to add MIL or MOA, and because the shift occurs within the unit and not the scope, you will be able to shoot ELR with full magnification. Also, a MIL stays a MIL. If your unit ever failed or broke, just take the Charlie off and still have the full functionality of your optic.
Built for recoil
The Charlie is used by Todd Hodentt, David Tubb, Walter Wilkinson, Eduardo De Fontcuberta, and other groups on .308, .375, .408, and 50 cals without a failure to date. (We also provide two extension bolts with the magnetic scope mount version for added assurance.) The Charlie Tarac is extremely repeatable (once set and fastened) and you will never have to worry about misalignment.
The Charlie is a fully adjustable unit. Click here to learn how.
Methods of attachment
The Charlie Tarac attaches via LaRue quick-release rail mount or directly to your scope’s bell (in place of your sunshade, 56mm NF) with magnets and two extension bolts (takes less than 40 seconds). There are no special wrenches or tools with any of our products. Everything is designed with the end user in mind. Therefore, bolts are commonly found at Ace Hardware or comparable store.

Mirrors are highly scratch resistant
The Charlie’s mirrors are more scratch resistant than most high-end scopes. They have a mil spec coating that resists scratch, salt, fog, and chemicals. Maintain the mirrors the same as you would your scope.
No barrel mirage
The fact we shift the target image optically before your scope “sees” the image, you will not have to tilt your scope down to look over your barrel and risk of obscuring your image quality from barrel mirage (from a hot day or shooting consecutive rounds). The front viewing port is purposely built high to mitigate this variable.
The ultimate goal of the Charlie is to provide an incomparably fast and accurate range adjustment for scopes. To give you the ability to shoot the reticle (if applicable) and or use your scope’s turrets for final adjustment. As nothing will be faster or more reliable. In an example offered by Ken Decker formerly with 3rd Ranger Battalion sniper on NRA, if you have a scope with tenth MIL increments, to dial 29 MILs for a mile shot that 290 “clicks.” Either there is going to be mechanical error and you have “ghost clicks” or you will lose count.
