This GLx 4-16x50mm rifle scope features the newly designed patented turret mechanisms, offering not just a new look but a host of incredible new features! Each movement of the turret will provide a crisp, audible, and tactile 0.1 MIL click that will never wear out thanks to the tough steel-on-steel construction! Externally, these locking turrets feature a high speed return to zero, ensuring that once your zero is set you won’t have to worry about bumps or the environment making unintended changes to your turrets. The return to zero feature allows shooters to rapidly return to their elevation to ‘Zero’ after dialing out for long-range engagements without having to keep track of the adjustments you made to get out there in the first place. Not sure where you left your elevation the last time you were at the range? Not only can you simply return your scope to your set Zero, the elevation turret features elevation rotation indicators to get you back on track at a glance.
The GLx is also home to one of the newest features. The smooth magnification ring hosts an innovative swappable adjustment fin. The fin can be easily positioned anywhere around the magnification ring to meet the needs of the shooter. Optional upgrades and alternatives are on the way as well, allowing users to customize their scope to meet their needs.
This 4-16x50mm GLx scope is equipped with the first focal plane ACSS Athena BPR MIL reticle, the world’s most precise reticle for use at extremely long ranges beyond 1,000 yards. With a holdover grid encompassing a full 50 MIL of drop, it’s easy to not just find the perfect hold over, but quickly recover and correct a missed shot by spotting the impact on the grid and adjusting your aim accordingly. Fine aiming dots are displayed in 1 MIL increments, making ranging and hold overs a breeze. When the reticle is tied in with a ballistic calculator, even advanced calculations like spin drift and Coriolis effect can be accounted for and applied to a firing solution without ever touching a turret! For those who prefer to count their clicks, the 0.1 MIL adjustments match perfectly with the MIL based reticle. This handy reticle is compatible with any caliber!
RKB Armory’s Opinion: Primary Arms, especially in their upper-tier lines (such as the GLx), delivers a lot of quality for a great price. These turrets are great, too!
