I installed this scope on my 300 AAC Blackout. Had no trouble at all getting zeroed in. Only took 5 rounds. So far, after putting 50 rounds through the rifle, this scope has held zero.I am very impressed and will most likely replace my other rifle scopes with new ones from Primary Arms.

I like it!
PRIMARY ARMS 4-16x44 Illuminated Mil Dot Scope
by William Diggs
I like the scope. There was a minor problem with the viewing end lense cover. The pin fell out the first day on the range and the plastic flipcover came off. I was able to find the pin and spring and put it back together but I am not sure how long that will last. Otherwise great product and quick delivery. Thanks Eddie Diggs
A solid scope, just what I was looking for
I mounted this scope on my Springfield Armory M1A. It replaced a Centerpoint scope that was killed by recoil. Looking at the scope out of the box, the 30mm tube feels beefy, and all the knobs look and feel great. The turrets have numbers/hash marks that measure in 1/4 MOA, and can be zeroed once you get it dialed in. After 150 rounds of .308, this scope has held zero, and the turrets feel just as tight as when I bought it. Please note that this rifle (M1A) is very rough on optics, and is known to destroy scopes. The glass is clear, and it has the parallax adjustment on the side, with the distances marked. It's a very handy feature. With the quick shipping (2 days to my door), I can't say enough about Primary Arms. I would buy another of the 4-16x44 scopes, and consider myself a customer for life. Thanks PA!!
Can't Beat it for the money
by Rob Bitterman
I now have 2 of the PA 4-16x44 rifle scopes. For the money they can't be beat. They are crisp, clear, and bright and have a ton of features for a $160 scope. I first bought one on a recommendation from a friend and after using if for a while, sold my Nikon Prostaff and bought one of these for my .17HMR.Hat's off to PA for providing such a great product at a highly competitive price.
Primary Arms 4-16X44 Illuminated Mil Dot Scope
by James Howell
I ordered the Primary Arms 4-16X44 Illuminated Mil Dot Scope and the Primary Arms deluxe scope mount Tuesday morning and I received it in the mail Thursday very fast shipping. It was packaged good with a lot of those inflated packaging bags so it arrived unharmed. I mounted it to my Smith & Wesson M&P10, and within 4 rounds I was zeroed and hitting my target at 100 yards. I went ahead and shot the remaining 16 rounds from the magazine. The remaining rounds made a nice cluster around the bullseye. I know 20 rounds is not a good gauge to the long term durability of any scope, but so far I am very happy and will continue to purchase Primary Arms scopes in the future.

I ordered the wrong scope and had excellent customer service letting me know what to do.
Amazing Scope, Amazing Price
I ordered this scope on a Friday and it was ony door step Tuesday afternoon. Primary Arms, as always, ships super fast. I mounted it on my new Savage Model 10 FP-SR and what can I say? It's flawless. The glass is super clear and you get way more than you pay for. I intend on moving up to a vortex viper as soon as the funds become available but this scope is amazing. It holds zero with no problem with .308 recoil and the eye relief is just right. So far it's only been taken out to 300 yards but I can't wait to take it even further. Probably the best scope for the price. You get nothing but excellence as expected with anything from Primary Arms.
Happy with the purchase.

I purchased and received my primary arms 4-14x44 illuminated mil dot scope in a very timely fashion. Overall the scope seems solid and well built. Glass is very clear and for the price I'm happy. Turrets have a very positive geek and I can see the reticle move with the tithing of the turrets. The illumination works great. I have mounted the scope on a remington 700 sps and used a seekins precision 0 moa rail and medium height rings. Should have got low height as the medium sits a little high for me. I have not had a chance to shoot the set up yet so I cannot give a full review of the scope beyond initial impressions. I feel though that this scope is built well and should perform up to my standards. Time will tell though.
Great Scope for the Price
I purchased this scope to complete my most recent rifle build (6.5 Grendel). The scope has a sharp reticle, clear picture, the illumination works well, and it is a all around awesome scope.
