Details

The Primary Arms 5X Compact Prism Scope Gen II with ACSS CQB reticle is our most powerful prism scope design. The 5X magnification and bright illuminated horseshoe reticle allow for surprisingly fast, both-eyes-open shooting at close range, while the ACSS reticle allows for consistent hits on targets out to an impressive 800 yards. For even greater flexibility, the GEN II features a removable spacer to tailor the perfect height for both AR-15 and AK-47 platform rifles. Whether you're looking for a new scope for competition, hunting, or plinking, why look any further?

Features:
  • Removable spacer allows the scope to be used on a variety of rifle platforms
  • ACSS reticle has BDC and ranging out to 800 yards with 5.56 NATO, .223 Remington, 5.45x39mm, and .308 Winchester
  • Partially illuminated reticle is visible even in bright daylight with red or green illumination
  • Removable M1913 picatinny top rail for accessories or piggy-backed red dot sights
  • Generous 7mm exit pupil allows for a bright and forgiving eye box
  • 18.8ft field of view at 100 yards provides easier tracking of mobile targets
  • 2.5" - 3.0" of eye relief
  • 1/3 MOA turret clicks are tactile and audible for easy zeroing
  • Tough prism scope is waterproof, fog resistant, and shockproof
  • Durable Type II hardcoat anodized black finish
  • Compatible with standard carry handle mounts
  • Protected by a lifetime warranty

The heart of our tough Gen II 5X Prism Scope is the ACSS reticle that combines ranging, wind leads, moving target leads, and ballistic drop compensation out to 800 yards. To the right of the horseshoe is our integrated ranging system. Place the bottom of the target on the bottom rung, and range up. If you know your targets are roughly 18 inches wide, they can be ranged on the side Auto Range system, or directly on the BDC hold overs! Two dots on either side of the inner horseshoe offer a moving target lead moving with an average speed of 8.6 MPH. Each step of the BDC system includes a 5 MPH wind hold, drastically improving first hit probability at any range. As an added bonus, the glass etched reticle does not require batteries or illumination, but 10 brightness settings (5 red and 5 green) allow for fast acquisition in close quarters, or enhanced visibility in fading light, powered by a common CR2032 battery!

The PAC5X Gen II has even greater flexibility than ever before. The modular base includes a spacer allowing it to be configured for AR-15 / AR10 or AK-47 / AK-74 pattern rifles with ease. The included thumbscrew mount can also be removed and replaced with any mount that accepts AR-15 carry handle-type optics. The top rail, perfectly suited for your favorite accessories or piggy-backed red dots, can also be removed for a slick look and reduced weight. The PAC5X offers the perfect amount of magnification to balance close quarters speed with hits at medium and long range, in a flexible and durable package.

5X

by -

First time using the 5X on my DPMS Oracle 308. Right out of the box was hitting paper at 100yds without adjustments. Was hitting paper at 300yds easily! This scope is amazing, and the bdc is amazingly easy to use!

SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by

Love everything about these: Have one on an X-95 > Perfect set up. I also have the 3X for AK's : Hoping there's a 5X for AK-47 in PA's Future

Good Optic, Good Price

by

I bought this optic for my .308 build. I love it. Now I'm thinking of getting 2 more for my both my wife & I's AR15s. For less than $300 it is really hard to beat.

Minor hiccups but cust serv excellent

by

Ordered scope w upgraded ADM mount. bolts on PA mount were loctited in with some crazy strong, grey $#!+ that was VERY hard to loosen, almost to point of breaking the allen wrench. Went to install ADm mount and it needs a smaller headed bolt and there was only one included (not 2). Also wanted to buy the discounted killflash ($10 off) but PA was out. Called customer service and they had ADm send me some bolts in a week. Scope seems bright a clear but haven't shot it yet. Wish the rail on top was removable (the scope is somewhat heavy). But seems like a very good value!

On Target

by

Recently purchased this scope. As always Primary Arms had the item out their doors and into my hands so fast. It's actually rather impressive. I mounted the scope with ease to my rifle, shooting 223. After a quick adjustment I was shooting tight grouped with every shot at 150yrds. 200yrds I was about 2 - 2.5" apart, not too bad for an AR.The colors were clear to see. The eye relief took a little adjustment since I was so used to a different optic on this rifle. I would say a good purchase and will recommend to others.

5x prism scope

This is a really good optic. For the price, nothing else comes close.

a bit large

by

the glass is very clear and the reticle will still be very useful out to distance even though is is only 5x. I is a bit larger than I had thought it would be but it isn't a problem really, just not very svelte. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again, you just can't go wrong with PA.

Primary Arms %x Prism Scope

by

Optic is clear and easy to adjust / install. I like how compact the scope is and the diverse reticle.The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is b/c the dial for color and intensity is stubborn to adjust.I would purchase more Primary Arms products based on my experience with this scope.

Great scope.

by

Very clear glass. Nice reticle. Once its sighted in, its great. Definitely a great purchase.

Very helpful staff!

by

I was confused on all the scopes offered and when I called for help, the gentleman simplified the decision making process for me and I'm very please with my choice! I'll be back again and again!Thanks!!

Great scope

by

Just bought one and took it out last week. Easy to install and operate. Really like the fact that you're not dependent on the optic lights to use it in normal daylight. I really enjoy all the thought that went into it.

Great scope

by

This is an outstanding scope I purchase multiple a ss reticle type scopes each of them awesome a must for your rifle it's almost like cheating it's so easy and simple to range estimate the reticle is perfect customer service outstanding Jeff and Laura are awesome

good bang for the buck

by

Works beautifully on my 20 inch govt model and what's nice is the reticle takes all the guess work out of shooting 500 plus yards.

Scope preforms flawless

5x Prism scope

This scope is a great addition to my collection. Very clear glass and for the price can't beat it. The service with Primary Arms is great. Before I bought the scope I had a lot of questions that were emailed the same day I sent them. The responses were very knowledgeable. l will definitely be doing business with these folks again

couldn't get better

by

Put on my PA10 .308 and I'm shooting sub MOA at 100 yards with no problems. David helped me immensely via email. Also got the 2.5 for the wife's ar15 and it's spot on.

Primary Arms 5X Prism Scope with Patented .223/5.5

by

Perfect fit, easy on and off. Really liking the reticle. Zeroed easily at 100 yds, which was not far off to begin with. Excellent scope at a fraction of the cost of others. Very fast shipping time from Primary Arms.

Awesome optic

by

Zerod @ 100 yards in five shots. Great optic. Allows for extremely fast and accurate acquisition. Very clear glass. Highly recommend. Thank you

the scope

by

The scope is everything I thhought it was. I'm going to be ordering another one real soon

Nice value for the money, clear glass.

by

The first one I ordered was defective, but PA was very quick to issue a refund, so I decided to try again. The reticle is nice, the glass is very clear, and the illumination seems just right to me. I haven't had a chance to zero it yet, but I will edit this review when I have. Eye relief seems decent for this type of scope so far, I used the mount it comes with, so it's not all the way back on the rail (I have 45 degree offset irons at the back). I have no problem getting correct sight picture, but can see how some people may get "tunneling" or have problems with the eye relief. I like the capped turrets, and can't wait to zero it.
