Primary Arms has shown an ability to bring a solid optic to market at a reasonable price. Their optics are especially popular on training carbines where you may not want to spend top dollar on the exact same optics to match your go-to carbine. Their most recent announcement, a 1-6×30 optic for just $250, is sure to find its way onto a carbine near you.
It will feature what Primary Arms is calling the ACSS reticle. The ACSS incorporates bullet drop compensation, range estimation, wind, and leads. The reticle is illuminated and located in the second focal plane. See the video below for more information about the reticle.
This optic will be available with a number of optional accessories like mounts, scope caps, and mini reflex optic mounts.
