Nothing but the best!
Thank you Primary Arms for a fantastic scope at an unbelievable price. This thing is AMAZING! Shipping was very fast and I could not be happier. This is my second Primary Arms purchase and I am about to buy another of these as my third.
The scope is well made and you certainly have a high value product here. If I have one complaint it's the turret adjustments... They are a bit mushy and and not as positive as I would've liked. That being said, it's still a great scope especially for the price. You can't go wrong. Holds up to .308 recoil no problem.

The scope seems to be built very rugged and sturdy. I was fortunate enough to order it when they had a special sale going on and was able to pick up some Butler Creek covers and an excellent mount for nothing! The glass is clear and the knobs function great. In fact I love those over a previous scope I also ordered from Primary Arms. The crosshairs in the scope are very fine and are hard to focus your eyes on. It was hard to hold my AR up with my right hand to focus the scope with my left hand, all the while trying to look thru the scope to do this. I ended up not using it on my AR and will more than likely purchase their 5x prism scope when it becomes available.
For the Buck

This is a good scope.I want this on my 308 for distance shooting because the older I get, the worse my eyes get.This scope is a little long, average weight, but for the money it cannot be beat.I wanted a lit reticle and a quality scope with a lit reticle is hard to find unless you spend a good bit of money.One thing to note, is that the parallax adjustment really does work and is noticeable, unlike other cheap scopes. It is very apparent when you adjust it.The scope was supplied with a sun shade which is also nice.The eye relief is a little long but that is the nature of it and is workable.

This is the second scope i have purchased from PA. Great price!!
This scope is just awesome for my AR15. I have no trouble what so ever putting lead on target at 250+ yds. The 16x is great for those distances. I've seen where many people reccomend at max a 9x magnification for this rifle. I have to disagree, with the minimal recoil of the AR15 there is no trouble losing the target at full 16x magnification at 250+ yds (didn't have any trouble with 100 or 50 yds either at full magnification). I did fire an AR10 with a 9x scope at the same distance (250+) and lost the target on every shot due to the recoil. This scope has held it's zero through over 350 shots so far. Turrets are easy to use, and the side focus turret (parallax adjustment) is great for varing distances. I'm also very happy with the illuminated reticle. It allows me to stay on target during those low light conditions with little to no eye strain. Thanks Primary Arms!
Quick turn around
This scope is my first for magnified optics, Have only worked with Red dots prior. Great turn around from time of order to delivery. Just recently got it "sighted in", can not complain at all. Intend on more business with Primary Arms in the future.

This site got put on a colt 6920 M4 and what xan I say it works flawless. This was my first time putting a scope on so I had a gunsmith help me, after he helped me zero it in he asked me where I bought this scope because he wanted one so I directed him to the website also today shooting someone wanted to try this Scope out abd I let him he also wanted one, its clear, bright red and accurate!

This would be a great scope at twice the price. Just sighted in my new AR10 last weekend and the scope is clear and accurate.
Skeptical, my bad
by Leonard T Schmandt
Thought I would give one a try. Turns out this Primary Arms scope is every bit as nice as a similar name brand that I paid more then double for. Had both at the range on two different rifles and could not tell the difference. Very pleased.
