Good price, good glass.

by

Mounted on 16 inch carbine, clarity is awesome. Eye relief is decent. Ranged in easy, but don't bother starting the process without thread lock, it will buck loose. PA even says this in the manual.



<br>Very easy to use the Binden aiming technique with 2.5x magnification. Overall best budget optic I've put hands on even if it is a bit on the heavy side.

Outstanding Value

by -

Purchased the 2.5x and the 4x about 2 weeks ago. I'm very impressed with the quality, and clarity. The BDC is far superior to any other prism sight I have owned or researched when I was looking to buy especially in the price range they are selling in. Primary Arms as a company has always done me right and their shipping is probably the quickest of any online vendor I've used. If your on the fence about whether to get this or any of the prism sights by PA go a head and do it you will be glad you did.

Good general purpose optic.

I have 2 of these. One on an X-95, the other on a TAR-21 (TAVORs). Rugged as hell ! I especially like the etched reticle being visible without using the illumination. Perfect for daylight. And the illumination works well at night. Have shot several matches with these, including night matches, and they perform very well. 2.5X is "just enough" power to engage steel plates out to 300 yards (or more), yet low enough for CQB.



<br>I'm thinking about getting 2 more for a couple AR builds I'm working on. (when they go on sale again !!!!).

Awesome!

Bought one of these on sale and love it. Very good glass, clarity and awesome reticle. Do not hesitate. PA is the bees knees.

Heavy but Awesome

Love PA, love their products. This is no exception. Great glass, great reticle but it is a little heavy.

<br>Overall highly recommend.

EOTec VS Primary Arms " what a welocomed surprise"

by -

I have EOTech on my duty weapon so I figured I would buy a budget optic for my Tavor....Wow was I surprised when I went out to the range...I wish could talk my agency into this Primary arms optic..I dialed it in after 3 shots and at 200 yards it was dead on...great optic well worth the money :)

Worth more than $200

by

Very good quality. I love the 2.5x...I get on target fast with just enough magniification to bring in the distance targets. I abuse this thing...with no issues.

Quality Scope

by -

Installed the Primary Arms 2.5x prism scope on my new AR-15 build. I was looking for a mid range scope without braking the bank. Followed the instructions on zeroing. I had it zeroed at 50 yards after about 15 rounds. After I had it zeroed I was hitting targets consistently from 25 yards out to 500 yards. The BDC works great. Thanks again Primary Arms!!!!

2.5 and Great customer service

by

Great customer service for an exchange...had just ordered another scope when the 2.5 went on sale ...swapped me out with no problems and quick ta boot ! P A has awesome products and the 2.5 is no exception ! Old eyes will love it !

Bang for ur buck

by

Love it

Great for the money, it feels worth a lot more than I paid

by

I bought this scope for like $230 from primary arms when it came out. I sold it for the MD-06 red dot (50k hour bat-life), and had to save up to buy another because I missed it so much. Primary arms has outstanding service, and the product is delivered very quickly. <br><br>I shot 0.5 MOA at 100 yards using a 10/30 magazine as a monopod with a del-ton heavy barrel mid-length rifle. This scope is great for the budget, and while it may be a little heavy, it has a durable construction. <br><br>The included flip-up covers aren't very good. One of them always pops up on its own. I have not tested this optic on a carry handle, but the included mount does a good job holding zero I believe.<br><br>It is surprising how clear the scope is. Very clear. <br><br>The battery life isn't the best on the illumination, only use at night on low setting and it will last a while

Great quality and price

by

This 2.5x is perfect, I took it to the range and was great from 25yds to 100yds, I'll be buying another one real soon

Outstanding.

Bought one of these to go on a Christmas build for my son to use. Clarity of the reticle and glass is pretty amazing to me. I have a bit of astigmatism so i thought i may have issues but no. Son is going to love this. I did think the reticle was going to bigger for some reason and take up more of the visual real estate but it feels good once you get past that expectation. Also pleased to see it is easy to use with both eyes open. I will be saving for another one to go on one of my favorite guns!

Bought one used

and love itI picked up one of these on a forum in like new condition. It was equipped with covers qr flip mount as well as the kill flash. The reticle doesnt need power so it can be used in daytime without using battery life. The smallest dot i believe is 1 moa and hard to see during daytime. With a weaponlight on my ar and this on i have an impressive nightime target view ! I may get a few more of thesethey are a nice alternative to a micro dot style of optic.Built like a tank

Great Optic

The 2.5x PA Optic has very clear glass holds zero and a very crisp reticle with illumination on or off. I've shot a few hundred rounds with it so far and its performed flawless. It is as accurate as you can be with a 1MOA Dot and good ammo. Now on to the reasons why I did not give 5 stars. The reticle is not perfectly centered It is noticeably to the left. Its not skewed or crooked its just a tad bit to the left When doing any type of fast firing drills it is almost unnoticeable but when your on sand bags and zeroing it it is noticeable. Nothing to cry about its just not perfect. The last reason is kind of stupid. When your selecting the options for the scope it gives you a selection to add a discounted kill flash. I did this for both the 2.5x scopes I ordered (girlfriends and mine). This is great except the default kill flash size is 5x. Not seeing it in the fine print that it was 5x only I ordered it and the wrong size kill flashed were sent. PA was great with customer service and the replacement was easy (except I had to pay to ship the wrong item back to them) But they did do free shipping back with the correct size kill flash. All said and done BUY THIS OPTIC and you will not be disappointed. I am a returned PA customer and I will return again.

Great optic

I love this optic it works great with both my 300 blk out pistol and Head Down AR-15. I only have 3 complaints: 1-reticle is not centered in the glass. 2-the reticle is a little small. And 3- It is made in china. Other than that I love this optic and plan on buying more.

Too heavy

by

I considered this optic love the reticle. But at 15oz it is heavier than my Vortex 4x12. I think I will buy the PA red dot sight instead.
