Primary Arms is now adding another FFP (First-Focal Plane) illuminated 5-25x56mm riflescopes to their SLx product line. These latest additions to the SLx riflescope family gives shooters two new options for longer distance options that make use of the Primary Arms Optics’ ACSS Apollo or ACSS Athena long-distance reticles. In addition to this, these new riflescopes are also engineered to have a slightly more forgiving and longer eye relief as well as a larger exit pupil in order to help shooters to line up on the target more easily. The first-focal-plane arrangements on these riflescopes means that the reticles will be proportionally true to the targets and distance at ever level of magnification, a feature more often found only on more upmarket riflescopes.

“One of my personal favorite facets of shooting sports is long range. The ability to place a bullet on a small target at distance is one of the most satisfying aspects of shooting,” says Stephen Morgan, Director of Product Marketing at Primary Arms Optics. “The new SLx 5-25 offers some key features like long travel, exceptional glass, intuitive reticles, and precise turrets that make the task of precision shooting accessible at any budget.”

All products in Primary Arms’ SLx optics line can count on the company’s guarantee of quality, further solidifying them as solid value propositions. Trained Primary Arms Optics staff personally inspects each riflescope for quality and performance at their Houston, TX, headquarters, and every scope in the SLx line also comes with Primary Arms Optics’ comprehensive lifetime warranty.

The retail pricing for these new first-focal plane SLx riflescopes starts at $599.
