Primary Arms Optics Earn Six New Recommended Ratings by NTOA

HOUSTON, TEXAS – Primary Arms Optics has received six new ratings from the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA), which evaluates products based on their performance in tactical law enforcement applications. These ratings cover many of Primary Arms’ 2020 releases, including the SLx® 3x Gen III Prism, the SLx 5x Gen III Prism, the SLx MD-25 Red Dot Sight, the GLx® 2x Prism, the GLx 2.5-10x44 FFP Rifle Scope, and GLx 30mm Rifle Scope Mount.

The NTOA’s testing draws from real-world performance, evaluating products by their build quality, ease-of-use, design features, and practicality for law enforcement operations. These tests cover weeks of analysis and trial usage, grading products according to at least 6 of 13 major evaluating criteria. To pass, the product must average at least a 3 across all criteria. Special recognition is granted to products that perform exceptionally well, achieving ‘Silver’ rating with a 4-4.49 average, or a ‘Gold’ rating with 4.5+.

This year, Primary Arms submitted 6 new products for evaluation, and each product came back with a positive recommendation by the NTOA assessors. Last year, Primary Arms received 5 ratings, with three optics earning silver rating, and two earning a full gold rating. In 2020, the first positive recommendation came for the SLx 3x Gen III Prism with ACSS CQB-M2 5.56 Reticle. Recognized for their exceptional performance, the SLx MD-25, GLx 2x Prism with ACSS CQB-M5 5.56/.308/5.45 Reticle, GLx 2.5-10x44mm FFP Rifle Scope with ACSS® Raptor M2 Reticle, and GLx 30mm 0 MOA Rifle Scope Mount received silver-medal recognition from their evaluators. The SLx 5x Gen III Prism with ACSS Aurora® M 5.56 Reticle went on to receive gold-medal recognition, the highest possible ranking with an average score of 4.52 out of 5. Evaluating officers noted the 5x Prism’s durability and image quality, which is supplemented by a versatile magnification and intuitive reticle design.

“We’re proud to see that this year’s new products performed well with the National Tactical Officers Association,” says Terry Mears, Primary Arms’ Director of Product Marketing. “Law Enforcement is one of our highest priorities in developing new products that exceeds expectations. The NTOA’s ratings confirm that we’re bringing professional-grade quality and technology at consumer-friendly pricing.”
