Primary Arms Optics is releasing its new GLx Microdot Risers. The GLx product line from Primary Arms brings premium technology and materials at an approachable price point, and these new value-priced mounts also offer exceptional material quality and engineering.

“The GLx riser mounts are engineered from the ground up to be a rugged lightweight mounting solution for any industry standard mount interfaces. The oversized, hardened-steel hardware and tough 6061-T6 body make it one of the most dependable mounts on the market, especially at its price point,” says Robert Sheets, Primary Arms’ Director of Engineering. “GLx riser mounts will be available in both absolute co-witness and lower 1/3 heights, and each configuration includes all necessary hardware as well as a spacer to even further increase mount height versatility.” 

A high-quality mount must be a durable mount, and GLx mounts are engineered to last a lifetime. The ruggedness of the 6061-T6 aluminum main body and keeper are enhanced by two sets of oversized, hardened-steel hardware, which also features a black zinc phosphate coating for added resistance to corrosion. In addition to this, the cross bolts act as recoil lugs, and the mount base includes a machined recoil lug to retain zero through repeated impact. 

GLx risers strive for exceptional value with top-notch build quality. Even though they are affordable priced, these mounts come with several convenient add-ons that go above and beyond their competition. GLx mounts come with an added spacer which provides the user two separate mounting heights (1.41/1.535 and 1.64/1.765) to match their preference. As with other GLx products, Primary Arms backs these mounts with a lifetime warranty and commitment to high levels of customer satisfaction.

The GLX absolute and lower 1/3 co-witness models have an $49.99. For more information these risers and other gear from Primary Arms Optics, please visit primaryarms.com

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
