Default I got a Primary Arms Micro dot!!! (pics added)



They also gave me a PA hat, and Bumper stickers!


Came in the mail a couple days ago and I finally got around to taking pictures of it!

Been saving for a while


Bought the qd riser with it.

Nice! Been really wanting one. Now they're pretty much in stock I don't have a rifle to mount one on.

50 trillion year battery life? PA Micros are decent RDS. Like PA said they aren't for duty use, but IMHO as long as you have a quality set of BUIS your GTG for classes/unofficial 3G courses/good ol fashion plinking/and a back up SHTF rig...

i dont know about the battery life, cuz i turn my PA off every time i use it! still on the first battery, and i;ve used it quite a bit. however, my 2+ year old aimpoint micros have been left on since day one at a setting of 8 and are still darn bright.

i agree, the PA's are awesome for the money, and i cannot tell the difference clarity-wise between it and my aimpoints. but my PA is on a 15-22, my aimpoints are on 5.56 AR's, per PA's orders.

Just got my first PA micro with an American Defense t1 qd mount. It appears to be a very nice piece of kit. Can't wait to try it out.

I recently bought the PA MD06L. I'm really impressed by the finish, the dot, and the switch. I got the ADM mount (mounts can be reused forever) and it fits well. I'm gonna put it through some torture testing with an AK pistol.

I was worried that the left side dial would reduce my ability to shoot well with both eyes open, but I've not found it to be a problem yet. Dot just floats out there on target...

We'll see how it holds up I guess.

Wow,

They're finally back in stock.

Have an M&P 15-22.

Do I need to buy a riser or mount for micro red dot with removable base MD-06L?

removable base model and a riser is highly recommended for use on the AR platform

Definitely need a riser for it with a basic AR pattern rifle. Without a riser it sits too low.

So the primary arms micro red dot MD-06L will come with a removable base...I'll have to order the riser also? Any suggestions on the risers sold by PA?

Thanks

All of the information is on the page for the optic...

The option is in the drop down menu... under optional AR riser.

The riser is used in lieu of the base that comes on the optic… so it will be removed. Not everyone who buys this optic will choose to use it on an AR-15 or a rifle that needs a higher height over bore so the riser is a separate option.

For me personally… I don’t. I try to buy the top of the line I can afford for my defense guns.

I really like the PA micro, it’s a good value for the price and I haven’t really had any issues with them but I only use them on my fun guns where price is a concern or where higher end optics are not warranted.

Its a cool optic that has its place, but if that's the best you can afford, then its a valid option, but its not the only affordable option. Vortex comes to mind as a competitor.

Do the Primary Arms sights have the l.e.d. emitter glued inside the bottom (or top, etc.) of the scope and visible through the reticle? I purchased a Vortex Sparc but sent it back because of that. I found the obstruction to my sight picture to be too annoying after using Aimpoints and Eotechs for many years.

Even T1 aimpoints have that little thing in there.
