Primary Arms Optics just expanded the GLx 2x Prism Scope line to include a new reticle for 9mm carbines and AR-pistols. The company says the new Gemini reticle got all the advanced features of the highly popular ACSS, adapted to the Pistol Caliber Carbine platform.
“In the right situation, pistol caliber carbines have so many advantages,” says Terry Mears, Director of Product Marketing at Primary Arms Optics. “We are proud to provide PCC owners one more advantage with the ACSS Gemini reticle, an all-new BDC reticle designed for use with 9mm carbines.”
The GLX 2x was originally released back in June of 2020, bridging the gap between reflex sights and conventional prism optics.
ACSS Gemini Reticle
The ACSS Gemini is an all-new BDC reticle designed for use with 9mm carbines. Here’s a description of it from the company.
The ultra-clear 2x magnification and etched ACSS ballistic-compensating reticle provide additional precision at further distances. The daylight-bright illumination with Primary Arms Optics’ patented AutoLive motion-sensing on/off technology grants the user enhanced performance in any environment or lighting condition, while conserving runtime for an extended 20,000-hour battery-life. Since this is a magnified optic with an adjustable diopter, it is well-suited for marksmen with astigmatism, which can greatly impair the visibility of other traditional reflex sights.
The Gemini uses an intuitive layout that integrates vertical and horizontal auto-ranging, a moving target lead, ballistic drop holdovers, and an infinitely precise center chevron with bold outer horseshoe. When paired with the GLx 2x’s innate agility, the ACSS Gemini allows for quick hits in close-quarters and precision at medium range.
This GLx 2x prism scope is more than just premium glass in a rugged body. This optic comes equipped with our next-generation ruggedized mounts. Despite being low weight, these mounts offer exceptional clamping power with hardened steel hardware, ensuring they will not move when properly torqued. The GLx 2X prism scope can also be mounted directly to popular mini ACOG-style mounts, either flush with the integrated belly mount or utilizing the included risers.
