Primary Arms Gold Series

Primary Arms recently announced the release of its newest optic line, the Gold Series. The Gold Series includes three new riflescopes with a “4” zoom ratio: 2.5-10×44, 4-16×50 and 6-24×50.

The Gold Series scopes are made from 6061 and 7075 aluminum, stainless steel and hardened steel components. The patent pending turret system replaces brass and adhesive internals with stainless steel, hardened steel, and aluminum alloy construction using mechanical component retention for improved toughness, durability, and turret tracking precision. Leave the rifle stationary for more than three minutes and reticle illumination automatically shuts off to save battery life. As soon as the AutoLive technology detects movement, reticle illumination will resume at the prior brightness setting.

Primary Arms Gold Series Features

The patent pending ZLock resettable turret knobs lock automatically at the user-selected “0” point. This gives shooters confidence that their rifle’s zero is locked down tight. Pressing the ZLock button unlocks the knob for adjustments, even when wearing heavy gloves. The elevation knob’s laser engraved rotation indicator tracks total travel at 100 clicks per revolution. When it’s time to spin it back down to zero, the ZStop elevation return to zero system ensures a quick, accurate return to zero every time.

Gold Series scopes feature enhanced glass clarity and careful optical engineering that maximizes eye box and sight acquisition speed, according to Primary Arms. Looking through these scopes, the field of view extends outwards to the edge of the scope body itself. Black bordering or vignette surrounding the sight picture has been nearly eliminated, creating a clear, flat field of view, according to Primary Arms.

The first wave of GLx4 scopes will feature six different magnification and reticle configuration. These options provide excellent variability for shooters looking to tailor their scope for specific applications. The 2.5-10×44 models feature the ACSS Griffin MIL and ACSS HUD DMR 5.56 reticles. Increasing in magnification, the 4-16×50 models feature ACSS HUD DMR 308 and R-GRID 2B reticles for adaptability across ranges. Finally, the long-range 6-24×50 models feature both the ATHENA BPR MIL and ACSS HUD DMR 308 reticles, so shooters can choose between a refined MIL Grid and Primary Arms’ trusted BDC holdovers.
