Absolutely terrible scope... may have been defective, but when I contacted the company I got the run around. Reticle will not traverse left and right. Spent a lot of money on this thing for nothing. Want some advise? If ur lookin ta buy a descent scope, shop elsewhere. There's better products out there for less money
Crystal clear optic
After much shopping around in this price range($300.00), I settled on this scope, with a lil input from C/S. The clarity is as good as Vortex, Redfield and Nikon, in this class. I will say this had the features I wanted and they didn't have. I am so happy with this purchase, thank you Primary. Stay out of the magazines, keep your costs low. Trust me there is enough buzz on this scope you'll stay in business a long time. Another satisfied customer........

And super fast shipping as always!
Clear, easy to mount
Bought this on recommendations of others on ar15.com. Have not had a chance to shoot with it yet, but mounted easy, optics are clear, adjustment are easy. Tactile click were nice while bore sighting. Hope it lives a long, useful life.
Very High Quality Scope and Rings
Bought this scope and ring set because of posters on the Savage Arms forum. Was looking for a high quality scope without spending $600.00 + This scope is it.The adjustments are positive and the lens is clear. The fit and finish are very nice, much, much more than a $160.00 scope for sure.I have other guns I am building and Primary Arms scopes will go on them. To tell you the truth I'm in shock at the quality of this scope.....and I might ad, the scope rings are top notch also, worth much more then the price I paid !I don't see how Weaver, Bushnell, or any body else stays in business against Primary Arms branded scopes !
Awesome scope for the $$!

Bought this scope for a savage Mark II FV-SR 22lr,I purchased it based on the positive reviews on PA website and also lots of positive info on the forums. I received the scope within 2 days of ordering and am pleased with it so far, ill post an update after I do some shooting!Thanks Primary Arms!

super awesome scope!
Exceeded my expectations! super clear, this is a first class scope all the way both in design and quality, built tough and holds zero too! great addition to my AR family, would highly recommend to a friend! thanks Primary Arms for the lightning fast shipping too!
Excellent scope and even better service!
by Jason Whitney-hwang
Excellent product.. Even better customer service!! So far the scope has been working well.. Only been out 1 session with 40 rounds but does track well and clicks are very tactile and readable..only set back is when resetting the turrets to Zero it's not perfectly lined up with the 0 mark. But otherwise excellent product! Would buy again. And it's mounted on a .308 bolt gun
Excellent shipping time, especially around the holidays.
Good for Price
by Stephen Wickham
For $160, this scope is hard to beat. I just bought it to fill in until I put a better one on. Holds zero, solid construction, accurate, easy to use. Positive click adjustments that seem dead on. But it is a $160 scope, so the optics suffer. It is pretty terrible in low light and picks up a glare. 10 minutes after sunset and I couldn't see 100 yds with any clarity. The illuminated reticle is pretty useless in low light, too. If I had paid even twice the price, it would get two stars. As it stands, I'm pretty happy with what I got.
Primary arms 4-16x44 illuminated scope
For the price point on this scope I will be getting more, fit and finish is very nice. turret clicks are positive and audible, glass seems to be clear and crisp. Dust covers that come with scope are garbage, easy fix , replace with butler creek covers.
Great scope for the price
For the price, the glass on this scope is very clear. Focus and eyepiece adjustments work smoothly and effectively. The locking turrets are a nice feature and while the clicks are not as positive as my Sightron SIII, they are not at all what I would call "mushy". You should be able to easily make adjustments by feel. The reticle is crisp and the illumination is clear and not grainy although it is not bright enough to be effective in bright sunlight. The 30mm tube and range of adjustment makes it easy to zero a rimfire or to avoid using a 20moa mount if you are shooting a bit deeper than average. I haven't tried a box test, but initially I think it would be a great addition to a hunting rifle or rimfire.
outstanding customer service
From beginning till now c/s is first class. After i got scope i had question about what setting was mil dot reticle to be set on to range target. I called and guy on phone immediately knew the answer. For the money scope is super.
Glass is very clear and has good solid clicks.

by Kyle Johnson
Glass is very clear. Turrets are easy to adjust. Quality is as good as my prostaff.
Good scope for the price. Normally I would be hesitant of buying a scope in this price range, but I just wanted it for a plinker. After reading the the reviews and knowing Primary Arms reputation I ordered it. Very happy with it. Functions like it should and I would definitely recommend it.

by roger carlson
great product, fast shipping what more could you ask for
by Jeremy Shaffer
Great product, fast shipping! We'll see how it holds up to a .35 Whelen.
Great scope for my AR. It is a really clear scope for the money. Almost as good as my Nikon scope. I will be getting another for my 30.06
Great scope for the price. Zeroed easily and has held zero. Liked it so much I bought a second one. Both scopes are on accurized Mosin Nagants.
by Brian Bullock
Great value. Picked the scope up at the Primary Arms retail location; fantastic customer experience.
Hated to spend money on something made in china, but I love Primary Arms, and this scope was highly recommended to me. It COMPLETELY meets ALL my expectations. The deluxe extended mount was the perfect choice since I like nose to charge handle.This scope + Rainier arms match barrel = me in LOVE!
