Primary Arms is quickly establishing itself as a source for quality, affordable optics. And it now offers a wide range of glass for seemingly every need. But the new Primary Arms GLx 2.5-10×44 really stands out as a do-everything scope for shooters.

Primary Arms GLx 2.5-10×44 Raptor M2 Details

Fitting in that mid-range in optical range and capabilities, we got a chance to put rounds downrange using the Raptor M2 at the recent Athlon Outdoor Rendezvous. On an AR setup, we hammered steel out to 400-500 yards with ease, and the optic remained fast on closer shots as well. It proved to be a solid, mid-range optic.

The Raptor M2 comes from its mid-tier optics line, the GLx. But don’t let that term fool you. Approachable in price, GLx scopes brings loads of features as well.

The 2.5-10×24 features a 4X magnification range. If offers better close-range field-of-view and speed than many 3-9X traditional riflescopes, according to Primary Arms. But the Raptor M2 also brings improved medium-to-long range precision. Throw in the Advanced Combined Sighting System (ACSS) reticles, and you have a very capable combinations.

“What’s unique about this specific optic, is its able to range out to 100, 200, 300 yards and beyond, using the ACSS reticle without having to index turrets after you set a zero,” said Primary Arms’ Antonio Torres.

The Raptor M2 received a Silver-tier rating, after field testing, from the National Tactical Officers Association. Solid enough for duty, but priced for civilian budgets, the GLx 2.5-10X Raptor M2 deserves a look. For even more info, please visit
