Customer Ratings & Reviews
Great for 100-600 yds, but definitely not daylight bright
I just bought this scope. First off, I'm loving the reticle. Got it sighted in with IMI Razorcore and was easily making fast and consistent hits on steel from 300-550 yds. Definitely easier than dialing in dope for your 5.56 AR. It is definitely not daylighted bright, though. The 1x is definitely not true 1 power, and in the Arizona sun I can't see the illumination *at all* on 1x. Shooting in the day at 1x is definitely nothing like a red dot. All in all, though, I think the excellent medium range capability makes up for the lacking 1x CQB capability. This set up definitely would benefit from a micro red dot piggyback on a Burris PEPR or with an offset red dot mount.
Made in the PRC.
I am giving this AR-15 scope 5 stars before installing it because it would be unfair to give it a low rating solely on the basis of the regime that made it. George was incorrectly informed, the scope I received was made in the PRC, not Japan. This fact is proudly displayed on the box, and it is etched into the bottom of the scope ( no peel-offer sticker here, so you can’t hide your shame.)
Best FFP 1-8x Scope
Easily had this zeroed at 100 in 5 shots. Moved it out to 548 yards on a human-size steel target and was consistently hitting using my zero for 100 yards by using the fantastic ACSS reticle just below the 500 yard mark. Insane how good this thing is. My only complaint is the picture quality past 300 but come on at this price you shouldn't hesitate.
Darn good AR15 scope
The glass is more than adequate for my eyes. The illumination is exceptional. Had it for around three months. Shot it a bit. Knocked it around. It’s holding zero in a Larue LT104. I really wish I could think of something negative to say. Maybe just make sure you remember to turn off the illumination. At any rate, it’s a great scope. Good luck finding it in stock now though!
Excellent glass clarity, excellent reticle, well built, but not true 1x
I wanted to love this scope. The glass clarity is fantastic, as is the reticle. The zoom ring function is smooth. It feels very well built.
But at 1x, the view is slightly magnified, and the end result is that you probably won't get a true stereoscopic view through the optic with both eyes open at 1x. There's also more edge distortion than with the 1-6. Those things conspired to make looking through it at 1x an unpleasant experience for me.
That, unfortunately, was a deal-breaker. Their 1-6x doesn't have this problem.
If you want to get a little more reach than the 1-6, and don't mind that 1x is really more like 1.1x, then this is a truly excellent choice -- the glass clarity alone will impress you greatly. But if you need a true 1x experience at 1x, then the 1-6 will serve your needs better.
The 3 stars is more of a reflection of the degree to which this optic fails to be a true 1x scope than anything else. Everything else about it deserves 5 stars.
Dynamic AR Scope
I’ve had my PA 1-8 x 24 LPVO for several months. I bought it for a customized Savage recon. It was wearing their 1-6x24 SFP but it is tuned for longer range shooting. This baby did the job. Mounted it using an Aero Precision scope mount. It’s a robust scope with good illumination even in daylight. The FFP is the darling here and this reticule makes long range shooting too easy. Elevated scope lever works okay, but I added a throw lever to make changing it really easy. The glass is pretty clear also. Rivals my Nikon in clarity. This is a whole lot of scope for the money. And I can attest they have outstanding customer service. If you want a reasonably priced LVPO yet with high end features this the one this indeed the one!
Worth every penny
This LVPO is awesome. The picture/glass quality far exceeds my expectations for an optic that is so reasonably priced. PA said they put a lot of work into these and it shows, everything about the optic is quality and behaves like a far higher priced item. The ACSS reticle is easy to use. Within 6 shots I had her zeroed in at 100 yards. Stretched her out to 200 no problem, looking forward to going further.
This is the AR scope you have been waiting for !
I am told this scope is now made in Japan. Beautiful, clear optics. Illumination of the reticle - even in full-daylight bright - is perfect. The etched reticle is sharp and clear. Magnification and illumination adjustments are firm and smooth. This scope has exceeded my expectations, and you can't beat the price. Primary Arms has hit this one out of the ballpark !
Best 1-8x Scope! Don’t want to break anybody’s heart, but I was able to acquire one these bad boys as a preview. Mounted, bore sighted and took to the range for an effortless zero. I already owned the PA 1-6x24 SFP and loved it. I have never owned a FFP scope and had been looking forward to acquiring one. A great opportunity came and I took it. I’m still learning its nuances and getting use to the moving recital. However I had small grouping once I got the sweet spot dialed in. The illuminated recital is very bright at 11. Love the chevron as opposed to the dot and the horseshoe makes in close engagements almost effortless. As to customer service I doubt if any company anywhere can match there’s. Who gets assistance from the damn CEO of a company when you email them a question? Let me tell you I’m a customer for life!
