Default Need your opinions on the Primary Arms scopes

So I'm almost finished putting together my AR and I was looking for a good budget scope that gets the job done. I was looking at the Primary Arms scopes and was wondering which of you have used them or actually have them on your rifles? I have looked at other scopes, but would really like more info on these scopes in particular atm before I make my decision.

These were the two I was looking at:

Primary Arms 4-16X44 Illuminated Mil Dot Scope
https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary-...e-p/pa416x.htm

Primary Arms 4-14X44 Mil Mil FFP Scope (out of stock atm of posting this)
https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary-...pa4-14xffp.htm

I am aware of the differences between these two scopes (FFP, illumination, etc.) but which would be a better option?

48 five star reviews on the first scope. Looks good to me.

If you received the Cabela's coupon in the mail last week, I just picked up the Vortex DiamondBack 4-16 for 179.99. (it was on sale for 199)

Are going to be using your mils to range estimate or as BDC?

Primary Arms is gtg. Great service and great product for their price range. I have the 4-16x44 illuminated and absolutely love it for rifle. I don't have any complaints and especially not considering the price.

I used their new 1x6 on a recent hog hunt in Texas. Worked great during the day and really surprised me during the evening hunts. Gathered more light than I thought it would.

Was mounted on my 6.8. 4 shots 4 dead hogs!

I also own a few of their red dots too. No complaints on any of their products.

Because the 4-14 would be ideal if your using the mil system being its a FFP.

I know my 6x and 1-6x does. I think all their scopes do.

You can't go wrong with P.A. They have great customer service, great prices, and awesome products. No complaints here!
