Primary...I'm gonna order one next week, Vortex is good quality but the price different isn't worth the name that has inflated their pricing for the last few years.....

If it weren't for youtube fan boys Vortex would not be where they are now

I'd buy the Vortex, at $280 it's not much more and has a better warranty. Not to say Primary wouldn't stand behind their product but it's 3yrs compared to life. I prefer the vortex reticle.

Great deal. I haven't gotten to the range yet, but I really like the scope so far.

I have the PA 1-6. I've shot it out to 300 yards in an outdoor range.
I can see s';t at 300 yards w the reticle. It's not bright enough and the shape of the reticle makes it so you can't see your hash marks out past 100 yards very well.
I've learned my lesson on a cheap optic and I'm gonna upgrade.

And now we know why.....PA just released the Gen 3 of this optic ...price point is about $ 289 IIRC . ...supposed to be a little lighter...shorter...and better reticle.
