    Anyone have a primary arms sight with ACSS?

    Anyone have a primary arms sight with the ACSS reticle?

    I really like the idea of it and am considering getting one then saving up for an ACOG with the ACSS reticle.

    I keep flip flopping between an aimpoint or trijicon mro, and something like the primary arms prism sights.

    I have an astigmatism so red dots are a blob, but they are useable. Eotechs are easier for me to use than normal red dots. I started looking into the prism sights.

    How do you feel about it?

    Would you rely on it for a defensive rifle?

    How has it held up?

    Thanks guys.

    This video made really good sense of the reticle:

    I have had one for a couple years and absolutely love it . It is the first generation 3X. They have made some improvements in the Gen 2 version since then. It has a diopter which makes it crystal clear (even for people with astigmatism ) like me. The glass is etched so you can use it without turning on the light. I mounted it to my SAR-1 using the RS Regulate 302 mount. Sits low as can be, is centered over barrel, holds zero and very durable. Rob Ski sells the combo 7.62 X 39 (scope and mount) here: https://shop.akoperatorsunionlocal47...62-Version.htm and the 5.45 version here: https://shop.akoperatorsunionlocal47...45-Version.htm. This is Rob's review on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHzV4MEqxBI&t=238s. Good luck with you search.

    Got one of their 1-6 scopes with the acss raptor reticle. It’s very clear and very precise. The built in range finding and hold overs and leads for distance and wind are very intuitive without cluttering the view. Much easier to use off hand than optics with mil dots / bars.

    I've owned a couple of Primary Arms ACSS optics. They're great! Clear glass, etched reticle, audible turrets, fine adjustments and holds zero with no issues. If you haven't got one by now, definitely try one out. I think you'll like it a lot, Jeeps. I'd also recommend looking into a Vortex Crossfire II or Viper.

    I like the ACSS reticle in my Trijicon TA-44 mini ACOG. I caution you to research this sight for your use carefully because there's only 1/2 power magnification and the reticle is vanishingly small. The aiming chevron, dots, and range marks are almost invisible unless your eyes are VERY good. Otherwise, a fabulous optic. I basically use mine as a red dot sight though it's really too expensive to be used this way. It cost more than the AR it's mounted on.

    tsmgguy, I concur with you take on the ACSS reticle in the 1.5X ACOG. It’s really too small to use effectively. That said, I bought one for my fixed carry handle Bushmaster SBR because I wanted to keep the optic small and the 1.5X ACSS ACOG happened to be on sale. I like it.

    Rights are inherent. They do not come from another's wallet.

    I've a couple of Primary Arms ACSS optics. They're awesome! Clear glass, audible turrets, fine adjustments and holds zero with no issues. It was a worthy buy for me. I bought it form Ritecoupons. If you are looking to buy then use discount codes 2020 to get exclusive discount on it. I think you'll love it.

    1.5X would have been perfect for the TA44. Wonder why this was not done.

    3X would have been just about perfect for the TA44. Wonder why this was not done?
