    Over the last thirteen years, Primary Arms has grown from a small brand offering inexpensive scopes to expanding their house-brand optics into a broader range of pricing and quality levels, and in the process they’ve become a powerhouse supplier for many other brands as well. Today they offer a dizzying array of firearms, components, and accessories, with product lines spanning hundreds of manufacturers from Aimpoint to Zev Tech and just about everyone in between. The Texas-based outfit has never forgotten their optics-oriented roots and are proud of their glass, and particularly their proprietary ACSS reticle. In addition to scopes themselves, Primary Arms provides related products like mounts. With a July 27th press release, they’ve announced the addition of four new mount options in their GLx line. The release reads:

    The new GLx mounts are offered in 0 MOA or 20 MOA versions.

    Primary Arms Releases GLx 30mm and 34mm Cantilever Riflescope Mounts

    • US-Made 30mm and 34mm Riflescope Mounts with 0 or 20MOA Cant
    • Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy with MIL-SPEC Hard Coat Anodizing
    • Features High-Strength Steel Hardware with Black Zinc Phosphate Coating
    • Priced at $99.99

    HOUSTON, TEXAS – Primary Arms Optics has released a brand new line of US-made riflescope mounts in their GLx tier. GLx products bring premium technology and materials into an approachable price range, and these mounts are built to outperform with top-quality components at a great value. Priced at $99.99, GLx Riflescope Mounts launch with 4 models to accommodate 30mm and 34mm scopes with a 0 or 20MOA cant. All four mounts are now available at or from your favorite Primary Arms Optics retailer.

    Made in the USA, every GLx mount features a durable 6061-T6 Aluminum alloy construction with MIL SPEC hard coat anodization for superior longevity, even in the most demanding conditions. The steel hardware comes with a black zinc phosphate coating that greatly improves corrosion and abrasion resistance. This superior hardware also contributes to the GLx mounts’ high torque allowance—with 25in-lbs for the T15 Torx cap screws and 65in-lbs for the 1/2” crossbolt hex nuts.

    “This year we launched our mid-tier line of GLx optics. It’s only natural that we would bring a solid line of one-piece mounts along with them,” says Terry Mears, Primary Arms’ Director of Sales and Product Management. “We are fortunate to provide a high-quality, US-made mount for under $100, which can be used with any of our optics from SLx to PLx.”

    As with all other Primary Arms GLx products, these mounts come backed with a full lifetime warranty and Primary Arms’ commitment to customer satisfaction. For more information on these US-made optics mounts, please visit the accompanying product pages on the Primary Arms website.

    While they've been optimized for use with Primary Arms' own scopes, these mounts will work with a host of other makes as well.
