PLx – Primary Arms’s flagship series

A few years back, Primary Arms categorized their product lineup into four series to indicate the level of quality: Classic (CLx), Silver (SLx), Gold (GLx), and Platinum (PLx), with the Platinum series representing their highest quality models. The manufacturing of the Platinum series is carried out in Japan. Within this series, the 1-8×24 FFP model has been available for some time. Now, they introduced a Second Focal Plane (SFP) variant of the 1-8×24 that includes their ACSS Nova reticle, enhanced with fiber optic technology.

Fiber optic technology

Fiber optic technology enables precise adjustment of the reticle’s illumination to match ambient light conditions, even in the brightest settings. This feature is especially beneficial in wide-angle riflescopes with magnification starting at 1x, where swift target acquisition is essential, and a bright dot facilitates this process. In the context of hunting, riflescopes equipped with this technology excel during driven hunts – 1-8×24 is no exception.
