There’s no denying the incredible recent surge of interest in all things long-range. Rifles and ammunition perform better than ever before, and within nearly every budget. That same evolution rapidly advances in the world of optics as well. Enter the Primary Arms Optics GLx 4-16x50mm FFP Rifle Scope.

Primary Arms Optics GLx 4-16x50mm FFP Rifle Scope Details

The GLx 4-16x50mm is designed to use with 6.5 Creedmoor and .224 Valkyrie cartridges. It utilizes the ACSS Apollo 6.5CR/.224V Reticle. The GLx line delivers premium technology and materials within an approachable price range, according to Primary Arms. Retailing for around $700, we’d say they are right.

The ACSS Apollo reticle features built-in target ranging and range-adjusted wind holds from 5 to 20 mph. A first-focal plane BDC delivers more versatility and speed. A center chevron provides a solid aiming point for targets at close range.

The scope weighs in at 23.5 ounces. Meanwhile, a 50mm objective lens offers superior clarity with premium low-dispersion glass, according to Primary Arms. It also features locking, zero-resettable turrets.

“The GLx 4-16x50mm FFP Rifle Scope is one of our best-selling long-range scopes, and the inclusion of ACSS Apollo helps bring it to the next level,” says Terry Mears, Primary Arms’ Director of Product Marketing. “As 6.5 Creedmoor and .224 Valkyrie continue to grow in popularity, we expect this scope to become a fast favorite for those looking to improve their agility and precision at extended distances.”

The GLx 4-16x50mm delivers a ton of features. And priced at under $700, it’s worth a look for anyone expanding their long-range armory.

The GLx 4-16x50mm FFP comes with a very versatile reticle.
