Primary Arms SLx Advanced Push Button Micro Red Dot Sight - Gen II
The Primary Arms SLx MD-20 Micro Red Dot Sight is the perfect blend of the advanced technology and features of our SLx MD-25 red dot and the form factor of our wildly popular MD-ADS! The newly designed body is aggressively styled and features low-profile, shielded adjustment turrets to minimize the risk of snagging in rifle cases or the bush. Our new high-power emitter provides true Daylight Bright settings on the high end yet retains both night vision compatibility and the 50,000-hour battery life you have come to expect. To further boost that battery life, the SLx MD-20 is equipped with AUTOLIVE™ motion activation. This feature turns off the optic when not in use and immediately comes back to life when it is moved, extending both the battery life and the life of the emitter. Compact, durable, and powerful, the SLx MD-20 is the perfect optic for your next build!

Stays zero. Great Shake Awake feature. Used it on my Glock Micro Conversion Kit Gen 2. Prefer it better than Vortex RD.
Great budget red dot
I ordered in early January and received it within 4-5 days, slower than the usual 2 day primary arms shipping but everything has been moving slower lately. Upon opening the red dot you quickly notice the quality, definitely doesn’t feel like a budget piece of gear. The brightness buttons are robust yet easily manipulated and the adjustments have a nice click when turned. I swapped out the factory ultra low mount with a Geissele absolute co witness aimpoint mount. Once I got it on the rifle I was in love. I’m not sure if it ever turns off or if the shake to wake feature is actually working but it’s always ready when I pick it up and shoulder it.haven’t shot it much with this nasty weather but my initial outing left me impressed. Would recommend to anyone, if anything changes I’ll update.
Good red dot
Mounted on an AK using the RS regulate mounting system. So far, hold zero well and battery life seems fine. Tracks well and glass is of good quality. No fish eye or any funky anomalies. Overall, Id buy it again.
It's like the Gen one but way better.

I picked up one of these due to the reputation of Primary Arms’ optics and the auto awake/sleep feature. The dot is very clear and crisp even with my astigmatism. The glass is also very clear as well. The push buttons have a nice tactile feel and easy to manipulate. Mated this with a standard Primary Arms mount on an AR9 and it was rock solid. Very easy to dial in and was shooting nice tight groups at 25’. I also have a Sig Romeo 5, which is also a great sight, but I prefer the MD-20 to it due to the clarity. Overall a great buy for the money.

I have astigmatism and this dot is cleaner than the MRO I had. Hitting 10" steel at 150yds no problem at the brightest point of the day. Backed by Primary Arms incomparable customer service, you can't go wrong. Buy it.
Excellent micro dot at twice the price! Best PA micro dot yet. The look, feel, and performance will satisfy even the most discriminating shooter.
Good red dot sight
I put this sight on my AKV which looks nice because it is small and not big like other red dots. I zero the sight and shoots tight groups. I just wish I had more ammo because it is fun to shoot with this sight. Also the price was just right. If you thinking of getting this red dot sight get it because you are going to like it.
It works for 5.56

I wanted this for my 300BO but that was a waste of ammo. I'd boresight it, shoot, miss the target and recheck with the boresight and the dot would be waay off. Went back and forth a couple times thinking I was the moron. Gave up and put it on a 5.56 build and it seemed to hold zero. Will reconfirm next range trip. Should've stuck with aimpoints
