The SLx 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 2.5X Compact Prism Scope with ACSS CQB-M1 reticle is the lightweight, do-everything scope you've been looking for. The low 2.5X magnification and bright illuminated reticle allow for fast, both-eyes-open shooting at close range, while the ACSS CQB-M1 reticle allows for easy hits on targets out to an impressive 600 yards. Whether you're looking for a new scope for competition, hunting, or plinking, why look any further?

Features:
  • ACSS 5.56 CQB-M1 reticle has BDC and ranging out to 600 yards with 5.56 NATO, .223 Remington, 5.45x39mm, and .308 Winchester
  • Fully illuminated reticle is visible even in bright daylight
  • Optional M1913 Picatinny top rail for piggy-backed red dot sights
  • Generous 10.16mm exit pupil allows for a bright sight picture and forgiving eye box
  • 37.5ft field of view at 100 yards provides easier tracking of mobile targets
  • 2.7" of eye relief
  • 1/2 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 AR15 carry handle mounts
  • Protected by a 1-year warranty

The heart of our tough 2.5X Prism Scope is the ACSS 5.56 CQB-M1 reticle that combines ranging, wind leads, moving target leads, and ballistic drop compensation out to 600 yards. The outer horseshoe of the glass etched reticle is used for close quarters engagement, simply place the generous semi-circle on the target and run with it! Each side of the horseshoe also has 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 11 brightness settings (including daylight bright) allow for fast acquisition in close quarters, or enhanced visibility in fading light, powered by a common CR2032 battery!

The PAC2.5X offers mounting flexibility to suit your needs. The included 1913 MIL-STD Picatinny thumbscrew mount can be removed and replaced with any mount that accepts AR-15 carry handle-type optics, or simply so you can mount the 2.5x Prism Scope directly to an AR-15 style carry handle. Optionally, shooters can add an M1913 picatinny rail to the top of the optic to piggyback a red dot back up sight. The PAC2.5X offers the perfect amount of magnification to balance close quarters speed with hits at medium range, in a flexible and durable package.

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!

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

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

Bang for ur buck

Love it

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 !

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!!!!

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.

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 :)

Great Optic

by

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.

Bought one used

by

and love it I 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

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.

Heavy but Awesome

Love PA, love their products. This is no exception. Great glass, great reticle but it is a little heavy.
<br>
<br>Overall highly recommend.

Awesome!

by -

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

Good general purpose optic.

by

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 !!!!).

Outstanding Value

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 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.

PA 2.5x + CQB ACSS = remarkable speed and accuracy

by -

I bought this to go on a AR Sig MP400 Pistol. It exceeded my expectations. Excellent clarity, CQB ACSS reticle is remarkably fast, and the brightness settings provide a full range for any conditions. Batteries are not required to operate sight - a major plus. For my old eyes this "is the sight".

Works nicely on my SBR!

by -

Great optic, I use it on a 11.5" SBR with silencer. I used this optic to take the place of an Aimpoint Red Dot and 3x Magnifier. The etched glass is great since a dead battery doesn't mean that you are out of business. The dots are very small which can be a challenge but I think I can manage. I am working on the holdover at 100 and then 200 yards since the barrel is shorter than what it was designed for. Overall its holding up well and I think its a good deal.

PA Delivers another solid optic

by -

I had bought other ACOG style Primary Arms optics before I got this one, (One in x3 and another in x5) so I had high expectations for this one. It met those expectations and then some. The optic is small and light weight, with nice-clear glass (Not Trijicon quality, but close) and solid construction that would give me confidence in it to survive being thrown off a building. It's a great fit for my Beretta CX4 Carbine.

The scope sells itself, if you get past the namegame.

by

The P/A 2.5 and the CQB ACSS reticle is amazing. I'm using the flash hider. I suggest upgrading the caps, if you can figure out the size. What's unique is how QUICKLY you can pick up your target. It draws your eye to the target. My 3rd season using it. The etching is incredibly beautiful and precise. I've yet to fully use all the built in functions of the reticle. Also, very durable. It's taken 2 significant drops with no damage other than a few scratches.

Outstanding Optic

by -

Outstanding optic for a DMR Build. Crystal clear when looking through. The magnification is perfect for both close and far shooting. You can shoot this with both eyes open or one eye closed, your preference. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a crystal clear magnified optic who doesn't wanna spend tons of money.

As good as it gets.

by -

I have had one of these for a while and I am giddy with excitement waiting for them to go on sale again as I plan to buy two or three more. <br><br>I have abused the snot out of this optic and it simply performs flawlessly. It offers near instant CQB engagement and still lets me reach out past 300yds with great confidence. <br><br>The prismatic construction lets you adjust the optic to your vision with no threat of optical distortion. In addition the ACSS Reticle is super effective and it weights less than most any competitive product at any price. <br><br>The only way to do better than this means you will need to drop round 8x the price and even then its simply not worth the extra money as I figure I have better things to spend it on. <br><br>Simply world class.

Excellent value

This prism covers all the good points- price, clarity, ruggedness, repeatable adjustments, awesome reticle. It's a little heavy, but that's no more than a minor complaint.
