    ACSS reticle & Primary Army 1-8X24 Scope Review by Brent0331
    Brent0331



    Published on Mar 24, 2017
    I recently acquired a new Primary Arms 1-8X24 Scope. I was very surprised at the quality and performance of this optic given the price point. This was my first experience with a Primary Arms optic and I must say that everything I’ve heard in regards to price and quality has been true thus far. Even more impressive for me was the reticle that the scope is equipped with. In this video we’ll take an in-depth look at the Advanced Combined Sighting System (ACSS). The designer of this reticle turned out to be a frequent viewer of my channel, after talking to him on the phone, researching and shooting with this optic, I’m convinced that the Marine Corps should be looking at this reticle to put in the next generations of RCO optics. Trijicon has even come out with TA-31 featuring the ACSS reticle, in my opinion, that is probably one of the best combat optics for an individual infantry rifleman available.

    Specification on the Primary Arm 1-8x24 scope:

    Battery Type: 1X CR2032 3V
    Brand: Primary Arms
    Click Value: 1/2 Moa
    Exit Pupil Diameter: 9.0mm at 1x, 3.0mm at 8x
    Eye Relief: Low: 3.50 / High: 3.30
    Focal Plane: Second Focal Plane
    Illuminated: Yes
    Maximum Magnification: 8
    Minimum Magnification: 1
    Night Vision Compatible: No
    Objective Diameter: 24mm
    Reticle Type: ACSS® 5.56 / 5.45 / .308
    Tube Diameter: 30mm
    Type: Variable Magnification
    Weight: 16.0 Oz.

    In this viewer requested video we go over the process of mounting an optic as a gunsmith would including lapping the rings to maintain 75% or better contact with the scope tube, the top rings do not require lapping as they will find their home once torqued in place. This is a process that is necessary for proper fitment of two piece bases especially or lesser quality rings but is not typically required for precision rings such as Spuhr one piece mounts, Leupold Mark 4, Badger Ordnance or Seekins tactical rings for example as has been shown in a previous video. Hopefully this clears up some of the questions and concerns that you guys may have had. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

    Leupold: History of an American Optics Company
    Military Arms Channel



    Published on Apr 13, 2017
    Leupold is one of the best known and most loved optics companies in the United States. The name has become synonymous with quality and their lifetime, unconditional, warranty. I've used Leupold optics my entire life and never really knew their history, until now. We traveled out to Oregon, the home of Leupold, and learned a lot about this great American scope maker.

    What REALLY makes the Trijicon ACOG so Different? ~ Rex Reviews
    TiborasaurusRex



    Published on Apr 14, 2017
    What really makes the Trijicon ACOG so good? Which model ACOG is the best for getting the maximum potential out of your cartridge? What reticle is the best? In this review, Rex covers many commonly overlooked details that can help you understand what has made this optic legendary.

    The Trijicon ACOG (Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight) is a combat proven, dual illuminated optic designed to be used under any lighting conditions. The extremely durable optic combines the precision necessary for distance marksmanship with CQB speed and both-eyes open shooting to maximize hit potential at any distance, at any time.

    The special edition TA31 4x ACOG features the ACSS Reticle offering which in Rex’s opinion offer superior first-hit capabilities out to 800 yards! The ACSS is compatible with 5.56 NATO, .308 Winchester, and 5.45x39 7n6!

    I bought one of these for my son a few years ago, about $50 on sale. After I shot it, I wanted one. I got one a while ago. I paid around $60. This works perfectly for me. I am not willing to pay more for a red dot than I paid for the rifle. I have heard nothing but good about this sight and it works great for me at the range. Maybe if the government or somebody else was paying, I would get the more expensive brands. Here is a good review in my opinion.

    If you are just looking to test out a red dot to see if they are for you, get this one, around $20. I am thinking of ordering one to try out. I heard they are made in the same factory as the Bushnell.
