Help with an older Trijicon

Hey guys, I have an older (early 2000s?) 1.5x-5x32mm trijicon scope but I can't seem to find much out about it... like if they even made one. Maybe my google-fu isn't strong, but i can't seem to turn anything up about it. It also seems that the tritium for the reticle is dead. I wanted to see if you guys know if trijicon can refuel the tritium and it this is a solid/acceptable optic to run on my SA Loaded M1a?

I recently bought a an ACOG. I went to Trijicon's website and asked them if they knew when my model was built. I gave them the serial number and in two days they answered it was made in 2010.
It's a 4x32 TA31F and the tritium needs to be recharged.
I called Trijicon and this is what they told me.

I send them the sight, shipping on me. After they receive it they do a Free diagnostics on the sight. They put together a work order with a price quote and call me before any of the work is done. If I want the work done, they needed all the money from the quote. If I didn't want the work done, they send it back to me.
Over the phone they quoted me the cost to recharge the tritium. $188.00. They told me that the tritium and the filament needed to be replaced at the same time because they are one piece.

Hope that helps
I find that odd the tritium already needs recharging I thought the half life was 12 years , but I will admit I could be wrong. I have a ta31f I bought used 10 years ago and it still does well . either way for 188.00 to get recharged and a new fiber optic and tube thats a pretty good deal. they are an amazing optic congrats on your purchase.
