Butler Creek flip-cap sizes: OBJ-02A Eye-16
Ratings & Reviews
I've had 2 of these on AR 15's For nearly a decade. I use them for sporting uses like 3 guns and target shooting. Now the real test is always my hunting season. They've been in Freezing weather, Ice, Snow, and most recently they were in 5 days with 45° days in the torrential rain.
<br>Solid as a rock. No Fogging, no battery failures. Not one problem.
Decent for the money, but not great off the range.
Works okay for range use, but low-light performance even at 1x is extremely lacking.
<br>But.....it's a little over a hundred bucks, so as long as you go into it knowing what you're buying is one of the cheapest on the market in its class, have at it!
<br>Like i said, it's fine for range use on a plinking rifle, but I'll be switching my blackout to something built for field use/hunting.

another 5 stars, great/clear scope
This thing is great. Have mine on a suppressed 10/22 and it's a blast. Good glass, good build quality, dials in easy and the reticle is perfect in a 1-4. For about $100? Come on. Nothing to complain about. Not sure how it performs on a centerfire but I wouldn't be afraid to put it on an AR.
Performs as Promised
by Dave -
Had this scope sighted in in four rounds. All my groups were essentially one small hole at 25 yards. I know that isn’t far but most of my experience is with handguns at 8-10 yards. Sharp and bright optics. I recommend giving it a try, especially for the price. Only criticism is that packaging and instructions really kind of blow. What do you want for $119? At least the actual scope is well worth it.
Very Nice Scope - Very Good Glass
After being thoroughly perplexed by all the scope choices I decided to buy this one. Figured I couldn't go wrong based on the price and all the positive reviews. This is probably the best glass you'll find at this price. It is very good. One reviewer said he wouldn't bet his life on this scope. If you pull the trigger and consistently hit what you're aiming at I don't think there is anything more to hope for. Most of us are not a battlefield. Took me a minute to figure out what to do with the reticle with no holdover markings. Here's my suggestion - Zero at 100 yards. From 25 yards to 200 yards no holdover will be necessary. This scope is very long. Perhaps the longest 1x4 on the market. I used the Burris AR PEPR 30-mm Scope Mount. I'll put this scope through it's paces in 3Gun and we'll see how it holds up. I expect it to be fine.
Love this scope.
Cannot do better for the money IMO. Had been using it on my Tavor with the PA single piece mount. Works well out to 100yds for me. Recently upgraded to PA 1-8 ACSS scope and plan to use the 1-4 on one my other ARs.
It is a surprisingly good optic
I purchased this a while back and had it hanging on a rarely used .22. Well after a while I decided to try this on my free float S&W MP15. At first I was concerned about the eye relief but after sighting in at 50 yards the eye relief is fine and I discovered this thing is a beast. The dot is very tiny and very clear in full sunlight and the larger reticle on the perimeter that thins in the middle just draws your eye to the red dot. My buddy and I liked it better than the ta11 acog I was running on my 6920 for punching paper. It is a little bit heavy but for the price I am more than willing to give up a few ounces for a much lower price. It held zero through the day and really impressed me with the cost/performance ratio.
Ok except for...
the tiny eyebox. This scope is decent for the price but is not forgiving at all when it comes to eye relief and alignment. Maybe if I shot a whole lot with this scope I might come to some kind of agreement with it but the fact is I don't want to shoot a lot with this scope. I don't find it enjoyable at all. Lesson learned. I'll be selling it to fund something better.
Reticle has rotated inside housing.
After putting ~200 rounds through my 7.62x39 AR the reticle is now sitting at an angle of about 30 degrees to the turrets. Instead of crosshairs I now have X marks the spot. lulz. This scope would probably be ok with something like 22lr but it apparently does not like the kick of my AR. From PA - We have seen thousands of rounds go through AR platform with this scope with no shift. Please contact our support group and we will get this swapped out for you.
Seems a solid scope
especially for this priceIt's not a Trijicon Accupoint or a Bushnell 1-4; it also costs hundreds less(especially for the Trijicon. Good things: The image is clear and sharp. The adjustments are consistent. The change from 1-4x is smooth(a bit tight but better that than loose). Adjustments you can do by hand no tool required. The 30mm tube gives a good wide view. So far I like it. Bad things: You can't always feel the 'click' of an adjustment so have to watch how far you rotate the turret. The illumination for the dot is not visible in sunlight so if that's a problem for you be aware of it; it's very visible in lower-light conditions and a nice sharp dot. There's not as much 'slack' in eye relief as the more expensive scopes. I've only had this a few weeks close to 100 rounds fired so far it seems a very good scope for the price and I've had no problems with it. If you want a 1-4x and like so many of us have to watch the pennies this is a good choice.
Good scope for the price. Illuminated reticle is not very effective in bright sunlight but is quite useful during low light conditions. The 1x does not exactly appear to be 1x. Target appears to be slightly zoomed out at the 1x setting. The scope appears to be a true1x when set to 1.5x however magnification is easy to adjust and at 4x the target is very clear. I have had no problems due to this issue. Glass in very clear and reticle is very crisp. Scope holds zero very well (mounted to 7.62x39 rifle). I am quite pleased with this scope and would recommend to anyone needing this type of optic at an affordable price.
Very nice optic for the money. I would buy it again.
by Mike H
You will never find a better optic for the money. I have just under 1000 rounds with this optic and it has never moved zero. Eye box is a little weird on 4 power, but well worth it for the price. Thanks for building a quality optic for us common folk!
Primary Arms 1-4x24 Illuninated Scope PA14X
by James Rea
Wonderful scope. Mounted up well and has ease of adjustment. I normally use the Millett DMS, but the PA14X is a great inexpensive alternative. I have always been pleased with all of the PA optics I have bought over the past several years. I highly recommend considering one of these.
Haven't been able to zero it.in yet. But so far, seems wicked. Rings are pretty tough, easy to install.
You won't be disappointed
Best scope for the money, I will be buying a few more!!!!!!!
Primary Arms 1-4X 24 Illuminated Scope
by Edin Huskanovic
Very good scope. Couldn't be happier. I didn't expect to get so good scope for this much money.
A fine sight for the money!
This sight is a fine scope for the money, and lets you see if a 1x4 concept works well for you. Much nicer than a "cheap scope" and much less expensive than high end optics. It's great for a backup rifle.
The 1-4x24 scope is an amazing scope, the price is very reasonable, very durable scope with great quality! Thank you Primary arms for your excellent service and for providing the public with great quality scopes for great prices!
Great product for the $$$, fast shipping. Just an overall great purchase. Primary Arms does it again.
This is my third optics purchase with primary arms. Call me a believer! This scope is pretty nice. My one and only complaint is the eye relief is too short, but I am used to my red dot, so it will just take so getting used to
I purchased a scope for my son's birthday. The purchase was was and shipping and delivery were quick.
by Jim Barron
Well made and excellent service will certainly purchase again.
