The Primary Arms 1-6x24 second focal plane scope (Gen III) features our exclusive, patented Advanced Combined Sighting System reticle. Bullet drop compensation, wind holds, moving target leads and range estimation are seamlessly integrated into an easy to use, instinctive sighting system that is very fast from 0-300 yards and very accurate from 300-800 yards. The second focal plane design keeps the reticle the same size at all magnifications for quick acquisition at low power and advanced reticle functionality at 6x maximum power.
We knew our flagship Gen II 1-6x24 would be a tough act to follow, so we worked hard to make incremental but real improvements. The Gen III is 18mm shorter (10.04in long), weighs 1.88 ounces less (15.52 oz. total), and has an additional 10 MOA of internal adjustment compared to the older model. The ACSS® reticle has also been improved, now featuring a chevron center aiming point rather than a dot.
Partial red reticle illumination is provided by a single (included) CR2032 battery, and a spare battery is included inside the windage turret cap. A total of 11 settings take the reticle all the way up to daylight bright. All lenses are fully multicoated for maximum light transmission and the 6063 aluminum body is Type II hard anodized in matte black. Flip-up lens covers are included, and a "cat tail" scope lever is available from 3 Gun Stuff (product code GS-460).
Flip-cap scope covers are included, but for customers who wish to upgrade the Butler Creek flip-cap sizes are:

Ratings & Reviews
Overall Happy, But...
by Jared -
Overall Happy. Glass is clear. However:
<br>Top portion of eye box is blurry, so full eyebox is pretty well unusable to me.
<br>Mine weighed 17-18 oz, far from the 15.52 oz advertised weight. I know 15.52 oz is without battery/caps/flip ups, but nobody runs them like that to claim they are 1.88 oz lighter than the Gen II (17.4 oz).
<br>Lastly, I preferred the center dot over the chevron. I know the chevron is for a more precise zero, but a BDC reticle isn't a precision reticle, which is why i like the dot. It covered a 1/2" paster at 100 yds almost perfectly.
Awesome glass, clarity, reticle, etc. Value is off the charts with this scope. If you do not like the reticle on the Vortex Strike Eagle, definitely pick this up.

I purchased this for 3-gun. It is an amazing scope. Clear and bright with bright illumination. I looked at a lot of other scopes but the reticles didn't wow me. The lifetime warranty and chevron of the Gen III made me "take a risk" on this one (that and the good things I have heard about it) and it has really won me over.
Great scope for the $
Took this to the Angeles Range on Thursday and have to say it's a really great scope, after zeroing my groups were fantastic and had no issues hitting the steel plates at 300 yds, I'd definitely recommend this scope.
All I can say is wow!
I have to say I am impressed! Got it zeroed with my 16" AR and started ringing steel at 300-400-500-600 yards! Even took head shots at 500! BDC is spot on with 55gr!
Bought this scope with my bonus

Got to try her out today at the range at 100 yards, pretty tight groupings, I recommend this scope to anyone that wants a cheap 1-6x
Nice scope, but any scope that is 300 bucks, should be fog PROOF, not resistant, and since you said it was only resistant, that means you don't have to cover that under lifetime warranty.
<br>From PA: The scope is still warranted against internal moisture buildup. We don't like to advertise Fog Proof as it causes confusion for our customers. All optics will fog externally if taken from one extreme temp and humidity level to another.
