Primary Arms Optics Releases GLx 2x Prism with ACSS Gemini Reticle

HOUSTON, TEXAS – Primary Arms Optics has released a brand-new reticle option for their popular GLx 2x Prism Scope: the ACSS Gemini. Designed for 9mm carbines and AR pistols, the ACSS Gemini reticle incorporates all the advanced features of ACSS and adapts it for a PCC format. At $369.99, the Primary Arms GLx 2x Prism with ACSS Gemini 9mm Reticle [MPN:710050] is certain to be a top choice for those seeking an innovative CQB optic for their pistol-caliber carbine.

Originally released in June 2020, the Primary Arms Optics GLx 2x Prism bridges the gap between reflex sights and conventional prism optics. The GLx 2x Prism is part of Primary Arms’ GLx optic series, which brings premium technology and materials into an approachable price range.

Weighing in at only 11oz, the GLx 2x Prism is comparable to many full-size red dot and holographic weapon sights, though 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 ACSS Gemini is an all-new BDC reticle designed for use with 9mm carbines. 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.

“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.”

    All that fuss for a 9mm cartridge? Sad.

      Perhaps so, but the 9mm is the single most popular pistol round worldwide. I suspect the balance of recoil and handling are the main reasons for this, as well as the fact that almost all the world’s military systems have adopted this round as their standard pistol round.
      LIke the man said: “Quantity has a Quality all its own.” While I prefer either .45ACP or 10mm myself, I don’t really feel under-armed packing a 9mm.

    These Primary Arms reticles are too busy & too small to ever give a definitive advantage over something like the tried and true Eotech 512 at nearly the same price point, or better yet, and my personal favorite, the Mepro RDS Pro 2.0.
    As always, YMMV.
