New for 2020: Primary Arms SLx 1-8x24mm FFP Rifle Scope

posted on January 15, 2020

Primary Arms has recently released their new SLx 1-8x24mm FFP Rifle Scope with the ACSS Raptor 5.56/5.45/.308 Reticle. This new optic builds on the legacy of their flagship SLx 1-6x24mm first-focal-plane low-power variable optic. At just $479.99, the new SLx 1-8x24 FFP Rifle Scope gives you a lightweight, affordable rifle scope which is effective from point-blank range out to 600 yards. 

“The new Primary Arms SLx 1-8x24 FFP rifle scope brings the wildly popular ACSS Raptor 5.56 reticle found in our 1-6x24 FFP to an even higher magnification scope,” says Bert Sheets, Primary Arms Optics’ Director of Engineering. “This optical system is a completely new from the ground up front focal-plane design that emphasizes low distortion and accurate 1x magnification combined with a crisp clear sight picture at 8x.” 

Just like all other Primary Arms scopes, the SLx 1-8x24 FFP Rifle Scope gives you premium features and quality construction at a great price point. The 8x ratio on the SLx 1-8x24 FFP Rifle Scope is one of the most notable aspects of this scope. This magnification range gives you the edge in engaging long-distance targets with greater precision, while still providing a 1x power for fast and accurate engagements in close quarters. The scope also features high-quality glass for increased image clarity and improved on-target visibility. This image quality, combined with the first-focal-plane optics and ACSS Raptor 5.56/5.45/.308 reticle allows you to clearly discern and hit targets out to 600 yards with ease.

MSRP on the SLx 1-8x24mm FFP Rifle Scope with ACSS Raptor 5.56/5.45/.308 reticle is $479.99, and more information is available at
