SLx MD-20 Budget-Friendly Micro Red Dot from Primary Arms
HOUSTON, TEXAS – Primary Arms Optics has announced the release of a new budget-friendly micro red dot: the SLx MD-20 (MPN: 810023). The SLx MD-20 improves on previous micro dots with an enhanced emitter, which provides an ultra-bright reticle with a 50,000-hour runtime on medium settings. Priced at $149.99, the SLx MD-20 Microdot is now available and shipping to customers.
Primary Arms Optics was founded on building better budget-friendly red dots, and the SLx MD-20 represents the latest technologies and innovations. The MD-20 is part of Primary Arms’ SLx product line, which built their reputation for innovation, reliability, and value. All SLx optics undergo rigorous field-testing during development to best serve customers in any environment, and the MD-20 goes one step further by integrating all new technologies like AutoLive™, Primary Arms’ motion-controlled illumination system. Combined with a durable aluminum body, 50,000-hour battery life, a zero-parallax lens, and an ultra-bright emitter with night vision (NV) compatibility, the SLx MD-20 brings premium performance to a budget-friendly price point.
“Early in 2020, we retired one of our best-selling red dots, MD-ADS. The time has come to replace it with the all new MD-20,” says Terry Mears, Primary Arms’ Director of Product Marketing. “This time, we’ve included a super bright high efficiency LED that provides daylight bright illumination among the 11 push button settings. Users will be impressed to find that even at the brightest setting, the sight picture is clean with no reflection or glare.”

I think this might actually be a great option for those trying to build their first AR if the specifications live up to their claims. The claimed 50,000-hour battery life is nothing to scoff at as this rivals or exceeds some of the more well-known names in red dot optics. What I will be most interested in is its durability against general use and abuse as well as its resistance to the elements like rain and humidity.
