Key Features

The three key features of Primary Arms Gold Series scopes are: Z-Lock turrets, clear glass, and their reticles.

Z-Lock Turrets 

When designing the the Gold Series Primary Arms sought after the next-generation of turret technology. With that in mind, the Z-Lock was born. 

Primary Arms replaced the industry standard brass components with superior aluminum and steel. Which creates true mechanical retention of zero. 

Here is what Primary Arms has to say about their Z-Lock turrets.

This patent-pending turret design offers peerless tracking precision and durability. Unlike other turrets, Gold Series turrets will not fade from use, retaining their crisp, tactile adjustments for a lifetime.

Gold Series turrets come equipped with ZLock™, our patent-pending button lock that empowers users to maneuver at full speed without the worry of accidental turret adjustments. ZLock is further enhanced with ZStop™, our latest return-to-zero system, which eliminates overtravel under pressure.


Having quality glass on a high performance optic is paramount. The Gold Series maintains Primary Arms tradition. 

The Gold Series gives users edge-to-edge clarity with minimum obstruction from the scope housing. Giving users a clear image that highlights every detail for the shooter. Their awesome glass pairs well with the first focal plane design. Allowing shooters to engage targets with speed and precision. The Gold Series scopes offer good eye rifle for better alignment and sight picture. With an day-bright and night vision illumination keeps your reticle clear and visible in any situation. 


The Gold Series comes in two reticle configurations designed to match the user’s potential application.
