Primary Arms has just announced the release of a full size red dot that runs on either a single CR1/3N or two LR44 batteries. Made with a one piece 6061 aluminum 30mm tube, the optic features a 2MOA dot for the reticle. Offering a year and a half battery life on a medium setting, the new glass includes three night vision settings – the Primary Arms Advanced red dot is priced at $130 MSRP. Details below.
Primary Arms has only offered microdots for awhile now, but we continued to get a lot of calls and requests for full size red dots using a standard 30mm tube. We wanted to come back to the classic full size red dot, and make it better than ever.
Here are the highlights:
- Lighter and stronger 1-piece body
- Improved recoil rating
- Dot size: 2 MOA and super crisp
- Battery life: Estimated 14,000 hours (more than a year and a half) at a medium setting
- Night vision compatibility: First 3 settings out of 10 are NV and cannot be seen by the naked eye
- Improved rotary brightness control knob
Warranty: Lifetime Warranty
The new one-piece body is stronger and lighter, made of 6061 aluminum and Type II hardcoat anodized black. A factory FDE coated version will be available later on this year.
The included battery is a CR1/3N, but in a pinch you can stack two LR44s instead.
The rotary brightness control knob is a big improvement over previous models. You’ll notice there are two “0” settings, one on the low end and one on the high end. Unlike previous knobs that rotated continuously, this knob has a stop built into it. When you are finished shooting you don’t even need to look at the unit, just reach down and twist the knob until it stops in either direction and you know the red dot is off.
The Advanced 30mm Red Dot is covered by our lifetime warranty. If a defect due to materials or workmanship, or even normal wear and tear, has caused it to malfunction, Primary Arms will either repair or replace it. You don’t even need a proof of purchase.
Any standard 30mm ring type mount will work with this red dot and give the stated co-witness for that mount. Weight is 5.8 ounces, and it comes with flip caps and a rubber “octopus” cap tether to retain your turret caps.
The Advanced 30mm Red Dot is in stock now and ready to ship for $129.99
