The heart of our tough Gen II 3X Prism Scope is the ACSS 7.62x39 / 300BLK CQB reticle that combines ranging, wind leads, moving target leads, and ballistic drop compensation out to 600 yards with supersonic or 225 yards with subsonic ammunition. 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 chevron 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 PAC3X Gen II has even greater flexibility than ever before. The modular base includes a spacer allowing it to be configured for AR-15 / AR10 or AK-47 / AK-74 pattern rifles with ease. The included thumbscrew mount can also be removed and replaced with any mount that accepts AR-15 carry handle-type optics. The top rail, perfectly suited for your favorite accessories or piggy-backed red dots, can also be removed for a slick look and reduced weight. The PAC3X offers the perfect amount of magnification to balance close quarters speed with hits at medium range, in a flexible and durable package.
Ratings & Reviews
First was good. Second should be better.
Just got my second one. My first is a Gen I and I've had it for about two years. This came up on a blemish sale so I got another for a different build.
<br>A great all around optic. Very clean glass. Good features with the reticle design. My favorite feature about the reticle is that it's etched. No illumination needed in daylight or indoor range time.
<br>Can't recommend this scope or PA enough. My 'go to' gun store for everything.
<br>Now if I can just make it to Houston some day...
Put this on a AK with a acog mount by rs regulate. Love the ACSS reticle's. Highly recommend.

I'm impressed with the accuracy and clarity of this scope right out the box. I put 150 rounds thru a Wilson Combat Protector Pistol in 300 Blk without any issues. The reticle was crystal clear making it easy to stay on target. Oh, did I mention this was done on a cloudy day!
Icing on the cake!
Mounted this on an Aero (M4E1)Enhanced receiver set with a 10.2” noveske (300 Blk) barrel. I am very impressed with how it shot right out of the box, no adjustment required. Stacking them @ 50-100 yds! This is solid, crystal clear, easy to use, and the adj brightness is spot on. I also appreciate the practicality of the ACSS reticle, and highly recommend this to anyone who’s interested in a quality CQB optic. As a side note, a buddy well acquainted with high end glass joined me and was floored at how well it performed at the range. Obviously, I have not battle tested this, but I have no doubt in its quality. Good job PA!
Buy 2 they are cheap!
This sucker is super clean and nice.
Awesome sight. Very clear maintained zero. I will buy another for a different rifle.
Customer Service award - 5 Stars
Hands down, best dam customer service i have ever received. I had a problem with a scope, and after talking with the great folks at PA i was told to ship it back so they could look at it. Since they could not fix the problem i got a full refund gift card to the store. Thank you PA, 99% of my orders will come your way from now on.
Why did I wait?
I've been wanting one of these for a year or two and finally pulled the trigger. It's a great optic for AKs. I own many AKs (~10) and usually shoot with iron sights, red dots mounted with RS Regulate mounts and I have one with gas tube (Ultimak rail). This is my first magnified optic for an AK. This optic mounts low (as possible) with the RS regulate system. I was impressed with the clarity of the optic out of the box and the sharp, clear lines of the reticle. The illumination is more than enough, even in daylight. The optic is easy to zero and it is easy to understand the reticle. My number of hits on target at 200 plus yard has increased dramatically. Before ordering, I was concerned about the weight, adding more to an already hefty milled AK. This optic actually balances well. I consider it one of my great purchases for an AK, out of many that have been.....not so great. Don't wait, get it and you'll be glad you did. I mounted this on a Arsenal SAM7r.
Great scope but HEAVY
These are really good optics but the 5X variant is much better and the cost difference is small. REMEMBER, these scopes weigh a damned pound so this is no light weight optic. They are durable as any optic can be and Primary Arms has them for a GREAT price....but they are HEAVY and the 3 power magnification is somewhat limiting even within the acccuracy range limitations of the 7.62X39 round.....the 5X option is the much better buy but this 3X is great if that is all that one can afford or find. Primary Arms also provides this 3X at a truly great price
As a newbie to the AK platform I am prepared to make some bonehead purchases. This however is not one of them. The reticle is excellent. It is easy to see with my 58 year old eyes (with glasses) The reticle is black when not powered, and when powered it is red. Depending upon the target, generally the non-powered reticle works just fine; the powered red can give you some additional contrast during the day, and of course, is needed for night work. I am using the RS 303M with the AKOG on a RAS47. The mount and extension are easily removed to mate directly to the AKOG mount. I was able to zero this at 50 yards without any significant issues. I did need to mount the AKOG to the 303M at the closest possible position closer to the firearm. This gave me an out of the box horizontal fix. I did need to raise the reticle UP about 10ish clicks to account for the lack of out of the the box mount and extension. I really appreciate the 3X magnification. Plenty of field of view
