    PRIMARY ARMS OPTICS ANNOUNCES NEW ADVANCED MICRO RED DOT WITH ROTARY SWITCH AND REMOVABLE BASE

    • Lifetime Warranty
    • Improved Waterproofing and Toughness
    • 50,000 Hour Battery Life

    HOUSTON, TEXAS – Primary Arms Optics introduces an all-new micro red dot sight, the MD-RB-AD, featuring a lifetime warranty and estimated 50,000 hours of battery life.

    The Microdot, Removable Base, Advanced sight (MD-RB-AD) takes everything learned from our previous red dot sights and refines it a step further. MD-RB-AD features an estimated 50,000 hours of battery life from the included CR2032 battery, powering an ultra-sharp 2 MOA dot. Fully multicoated lenses and an ultra low profile emitter ensure a clean sight picture with minimal lens tint. Eleven brightness settings are controlled by the rotary knob on the right side. The first two settings are compatible with night vision units and cannot be seen by the naked eye. The brightest settings are daylight bright. The illumination knob physically stops at “0” with the red dot turned off.

    Covered by the Primary Arms lifetime warranty, MD-RB-AD is designed for use on heavy recoiling firearms such as shotguns. Constructed of 6061 aluminum throughout, MD-RB-AD features a Type II anodized matte black finish. Waterproofing is improved over previous models—for example, the turret caps are now aluminum instead of plastic and tighten down around the waterproofing O-rings until metal-to-metal contact with the scope body. When removed, the turret caps can be used to adjust windage and elevation.

    MD-RB-AD comes with a removable MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny base. With the base removed, the scope body is compatible with industry standard micro mount systems, enabling MD-RB-AD to be mounted correctly on a wide variety of firearms.

    Available in matte black or flat dark earth, MD-RB-AD is priced at $ 149.99.

    • Patented ACSS® R-Grid 2B™ Mil Reticle

    HOUSTON, TEXAS – The Primary Arms 3-18X50 First Focal Plane scope is changing shooters’ expectations about what a precision rifle scope in this class can do. It features the improved, optimized ACSS R-Grid 2B reticle, an unbeatable combination of quickness at low magnification and precision at high magnification.

    This all-new scope enables the precision rifle shooter to acquire a sight picture very quickly for snap shooting situations at short range and low magnification. Yet a full 18x magnification on the high end is possible for the first time in an optic of this class, enabling high precision shots exceeding 1,000 yards. Innovations like a removable, replaceable power ring fin have combined with features demanded by our customers, like locking, zero-resettable target turrets.

    The R-Grid 2B reticle is a refinement worth waiting for. The familiar ACSS chevron and horseshoe remain for up close snap shooting. Auto-ranging will be familiar to ACSS users. The original line grid has been replaced with a dot matrix grid, giving more precise holdover references with less clutter, and extended down to 15 Mil below center.
