A Compact Magnifier for Your RDS-Equipped Firearm
Thanks to the incredible amount of red-dot sights found on the market today, one of the most-popular additions designed to increase the range of an RDS-equipped rifle is a magnifier. Unfortunately, many of the magnifiers on the market tend to be bulky, heavy units, but the Vortex Micro 3X Magnifier addresses these issues in a compact, lightweight package.
Each Vortex Micro 3X Magnifier provides the same 3X magnification capabilities as most magnifiers on the market, while also providing an integrated quick-release mechanism that allows for fast mounting and removal, when needed. The flip mount also allows for the magnifier to be moved to the right or left when 1X magnification is needed.
The Vortex 3X Magnifier measures 2.9 inches long and provides an eye relief of 2.64 inches. The total weight on the unit is 6.9 ounces, and the optic ships with a rubber lens cover, lens cloth and 3mm Hex tool. The company warns that the magnifier will not work with prism optics and may introduce parallax when used in conjunction with red-dot optics.
