The Classic Series™ proves that entry-level optics don’t have to be poor quality optics. Unlike some other brands, we don’t use the word “value” as a euphemism for “junk”. Classic Series scopes are perfect for the budget conscious and the new shooter. We take the time to 100% inspect every product in our facility here in Houston to ensure you are receiving the best quality product as our other three tiers. These scopes are backed by the same excellent customer service and support as all other Primary Arms products.

The Primary Arms 4-16x scope is a second focal plane scope featuring an illuminated Mil-Dot reticle for ranging targets at 16x magnification. Locking turrets with resettable zero give audible and tactile 1/4 MOA clicks. A side mounted parallax adjust knob keeps the reticle parallax free and the target image sharp at extended ranges. This tough scope is shockproof, water and fog resistant, and comes with a lifetime warranty.

  • Illuminated Mil-Dot reticle
  • 12 brightness settings

Very nice scope


I can not speak for the durability of the scope but the initial impressions are that its very nice and well built, definitely outstanding quality for the money and has the options you normally would not get at this price like illumination. I use Primary Arms scopes on everything now and I have yet to have one of them fail.

PA 4x16 MilDot


I could only give this scope an average rating, mostly due to a small and sensitive eye box. The glass is nice and clear considering the cost. It compares very closely to to a $1,000 scope I own.The covers are pretty flimsy so a set of Butler Creeks would be in order. It tracked OK but the parallax didn't seem to do much, even when set for a clear view just the slightest change in cheek weld moved the shot at least an inch at 100 yards.For a short range beater scope it is a bargain, long range with this scope would be challenging.

I rarely write review, but this scope deserves it!


I do a lot of shooting, and playing with loud toys and accessories. I like to look at less expensive scopes and equipment (I hate to see 2-4k spent on glass alone) so I try different lesser priced stuff and see what works. This scope had good reviews for a reason. I used it on my .243 and shot a Precision Rifle Match with a local club. Most guys were running high end Loups or Night Force. My gun is no slouch and I'm not bad either, but the most important of the 5 senses is sight (especially with marksmanship). Not only did this scope keep me in the game I almost won (forgot to adjust dope for one stage). I claimed 2nd and was proud of it. I may just buy another (instead of the Tangent Theta I want) and spend the money I another toy (the wife will never know). Thanks PA!

Great scope and cheap too!


I dropped this on my S&W M&P15 5.56 and within 2 shots I was in black at 100yds. Crank up the magnification and you can watch your bullets impact at 100yds. I can't wait to get it out on the long range.

Very nice Scope


I found this scope to be very easy to use. I was able to site the scope in very quickly. The only thing i would have like was more directions on how to use the Dials. But other then that I find it a very good quality scope for the money

Awesome products and service


I got a PA 4-16x33 scope for my 91/30 and it works great. The glass is clear and it performs flawlessly. It has held its zero for 100 rounds so far.

Primary Arms 4-16x44 Mil Dot Scope


I have 3 of these units. Wouldn't have bought the 2nd and 3rd if I didn't think they were an outstanding value. 'Nuf said.

Always a pleasure


I have bought a few items from PA and have always been happy with my purchase. I am always amazed at the quality vs price.

Great for the money


I have only sighted this in and shot close to 30 rounds with it, but I can say it is just as clear as my Nikon Prostaff. Like overs reviewed, the notches and adjustments don't exactly fall into place where they should, but it is a small complaint for such a great scope for the money. The reticle lights up nice and bright with no problems. I have this mounted on a AR with the standard mount. Solid as can be!

Haven't used it yet


I haven't had the opportunity to use this scope yet because I ordered the wrong scope rings. They fit and finish of this product is equally as good as other primary arms scopes. I am assuming it will function and hold up as well as all the other scopes I have ordered in the past. Customer service is outstanding as always so if this scope doesn't work out I'm am confident that primary arms will work it out.
