Primary Arms offers quality red dots, optics, and prism scopes at a great intro price point. They are also know for bringing a little color to the lineup at times. Primary Arms has released their Gen III prism scopes in 3x and 5x in the much beloved FDE. (Yes, I know behind the 8-ball on this one and they have been out for a minute but, better late than never.)

The ACSS reticle has been updated in the GEN III prism scopes as well. The 3x retails at $289.99. While the 5x retails at $329.99, which is only a $40 difference.
