The Silver Series optics are the heart of our lineup. The trusted optics that have built our reputation through the years. Although many SLx optics will be familiar to Primary Arms fans, we are always pushing forward with new generations and adding even more options in response to the demands of our loyal customers.

The Primary Arms 3-18x50mm first focal plane illuminated rifle scope punches far outside of its weight class. At 3x magnification, fast snap shots at close range are a breeze with the daylight bright illuminated reticle, but the scope easily allows shooters to reach the 1,000 yard line when cranked up to the full 18x available at the top end. To make the best of the reticle at every magnification, it has been etched into the first focal plane. This allows it to be 'true' at every magnification, allowing the ranging, hold overs, and wind holds to be used as long as you can see them.

  • First Focal Plane reticle is true at every magnification
  • Full reticle illumination is daylight bright
  • ACSS APOLLO 6.5 CM Reticle provides ranging, bullet drop, and wind holds out to 1,000 yards in up to 20mph cross winds

  • The replaceable power ring fin can be positioned to user preference
  • Locking, Zero resettable turrets
  • 30mm main tube
  • Weight: 25.4 oz. with battery, without lens covers
  • Water proof, fog resistant, shock resistant
  • Lifetime warranty

The 3-18x50mm is equipped with the ACSS APOLLO 6.5CM reticle, simply the ultimate option for 6.5 Creedmoor shooters available. Simply sight in at 100 yards and you are ready to engage at any range out to 1,000 yards with crosswinds up to 20 mph, all without requiring any math or touching a single turret. Combine the built-in range estimation and hold overs with an infinitely precise chevron tip aiming point and .2 MIL crosshair subtensions, and you have a firing solution at any distance.

The 3-18x50mm scope body is our most advanced to date, offering new innovative features, as well as old favorites. A removable and replaceable fin on the power ring allows for rapid adjustment of the magnification range just like a throw lever, with placement of the fin entirely at the discretion of the operator. The improved turrets have tactile and audible 0.1 MIL click adjustments, as well as offering easy reset once you've got your zero and secure locking to prevent accidental adjustments. The illumination turret offers six settings with an 'OFF' setting between each for fast switching to your preferred setting. A smooth parallax adjustment and fast focus eye piece work together to provide a perfectly crisp image of the target and reticle.

Featuring clear glass, forgiving eye relief/exit pupil characteristics, and efficient industrial design, the 3-18x50 FFP Scope with ACSS APOLLO 6.5CM reticle is backed up by the Primary Arms Lifetime Warranty.

Better scope than my pay grade.

Received my APOLLO scope with fast shipping and did a quick install on a blank stock for initial testing. I am new to this style of reticle and took roughly 20 minutes to get the bells and whistles sorted out. Very sturdy construction with nice clicks and action of the turrets. With out testing at the range I can already say the glass is schweet, scanning the ridge across from my kitchen table "500 yrds" I see very nice detail great clarity with very little mirage. I will report back after range test

For those who don’t like math.

I’m not good in math and this is the perfect scope for me. If you don’t like numbers, then this is the scope for you. I just zeroed it to 100 yards and I keep hitting my target with the use of the BDC. The range finder works great too, pretty accurate. Just like Dimitri say,”This allows you to be very fast on target, completely math free.” I’m so happy with this scope, you got more than what you paid for.

Might be my favorite primary arms scope so far ;)

Love the reticle. Really should work well with my 6.5 Creedmoor and .224 Valkarie reloads. I have this scope in the ACSS DMR .308 version and it's a nice upgrade over the cheaper 4-14x FFP ACSS scopes(which are not bad for the $).
