Primary Arms Optics has revealed their new product lineup ahead of SHOT Show 2020. This year’s releases include updates to existing favorites and new GLx and SLx optics that bring innovative features at a compelling value.

At the tip of the spear, the new GLx 2x Prism and 3rd Generation SLx 3x and 5x Prism Scopes provide even greater durability and precision. New to the market, the GLx 2x Prism is a completely original design, engineered from the ground-up at the Primary Arms headquarters in Houston, Texas. Weighing in at 11 ounces, the optic features gentle 2x magnification with a minimal footprint, making it ideal for Law Enforcement and home defense applications.

With excellent glass clarity and a massive eyebox, the GLx 2x Prism is quick in close-quarters, but the ACSS® CQB-M5 reticles offer intuitive long-distance holds for most common cartridges. Alongside the new scope, existing Primary Arms Optics best-selling prism scopes will be upgraded into their 3rd generation with all-new mounting hardware, which improves durability and rigidity without adding excess weight.

Primary Arms Optics is also expanding their popular SLx optics line with an innovative all new 25mm Micro Red Dot Sight and a versatile 1-8x24mm FFP Rifle Scope (MPN: 610098).

The SLx 25mm Micro Red Dot Sight is the next generation of Primary Arms microdots, featuring new technology that makes it the brightest mid-tier red dot on the market. Its ruggedized frame and wide field-of-view ensures that the sight can outperform even in harsh or adverse conditions. Available in both a 2MOA dot and ACSS-5.56 reticle configuration, users can choose between simplicity or a horseshoe-dot BDC.

For long distances, the recently released SLx 1-8x24mm FFP Rifle Scope bridges the gap between the beloved SLx 1-6×24 and the PLx 1-8×24.

With a sub-18oz weight and 10.3in profile, this scope is well-suited for compact carbines and marksman rifles alike. The wide magnification range and precision ACSS Raptor 5.56 reticle make this one of the most versatile optics on the market.

Other updates include two new reticle options for the existing lineup of GLx rifle scopes. The GLx 2.5-10x44mm FFP Rifle Scope will see the addition of the ACSS Raptor 5.56 reticle. while the GLx 4-16x50mm FFP Rifle Scope will be available with a traditional MIL DOT reticle. GLx was Primary Arms Optics’ largest release of 2019, accompanied with several other important announcements.

The National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) released its findings after field-testing many Primary Arms Optics products. Every optic in the trial received a positive recommendation, with the PLx 1-8x24mm FFP and SLx 1-6x24mm FFP Rifle scopes earning the top-tier gold rating. Through 2019, Primary Arms Optics also expanded into international markets, extending its products to export for hobbyists and professionals around the world.
