Primary Arms has built a reputation for hard-to-beat quality and features in affordable optics that get the job done. As an example, see Jeremy’s earlier review of their SLx MD-25 red dot sight. It does everything 95% of the population needs a red dot sight to do.
As part of their Odyssey 2023 product launch, Primary Arms announced an upgrade to the MD-25 with the new SLx MD-25 Gen II. Like the earlier version, it’s available with either a 2 MOA red dot or the exceptionally useful ACSS CQB reticle and their incredibly flexible proprietary mounting system that gives you a range of options.
The Gen II version now has battery-saving Auto Live technology that extends battery life. The 2 MOA red dot version will go 50,000 hours. The ACSS-CQB model is rated at 12,000+ hours.
Both the 2 MOA model and the ACSS CQB version are available now through Primary Arms.
