HOUSTON, TEXAS – Primary Arms Optics’ new SLx® 3x MicroPrism was just awarded special recognition as a recommended duty optic by the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA).

The NTOA is a major industry evaluator for new tactical products, and many professionals look to their opinions when deciding if a particular product is ‘duty-ready’. NTOA testing encompasses weeks of field trials by a panel of Law Enforcement professionals, who score products according to at least 6 of 13 primary criteria, including Design, Performance, Ease of Use, Size, Quality, Durability, Storage, Versatility, Convenience, Application, Comfort, Accuracy, and Cleaning & Maintenance.

To receive a basic recommendation, a product must average at least a 3 across all criteria. Special recommendations are given to products with an average score of 4+, and the new SLx 3x MicroPrism was able to meet and exceed this high standard.

In their review of the new 3x MicroPrism, reviewers commented positively about its durability, versatility, and value. “This product stood the test of a team of professionals that notoriously break stuff. It also created an ease of application that could rival the top products in the industry,” noted one evaluator. “I had no technical issues or system failures during the testing. I would highly recommend this product in a professional/tactical environment.”

This is the second of Primary Arms’ new SLx MicroPrism line to earn the special Silver-tier recommendation. Last year, their SLx 1x MicroPrism also won a silver recommendation, impressing reviewers with its forgiving eyebox, lightweight body, and versatile mounting system. As part of the SLx line, both optics underwent rigorous field-testing during development to best serve the user in any environment, and Primary Arms backs them with a lifetime warranty and commitment to customer satisfaction. 

“We are honored to be recognized by the National Tactical Officers Association once again. We strive to provide reliable, durable, and accurate aiming solutions to the men and women of Law Enforcement and a great value,” says Stephen Morgan, Primary Arms Optics’ Director of Product Marketing. “We want this community to use Primary Arms Optics products and have complete faith that, should the need arise, their optic will be there to fulfill its role, without fail.”
