Got the flip to side mount. It looks great haven't shot with it on yet but I'm sure it will be great.

I absolutely love this mount. It is silent and completely effortless to switch from zoom to open sight. It's well worth the money and do not regret the purchase for one second. I would recommend to anyone!

Great Bundle and Service
Elm Valle from TX wrote on August 10, 2015:

I got this with the x3 Magnifier Long Relief package. As I stated in my other review, it literally fell apart after one day at the range, but PA replaced it right away! No problems after that! Still a very good flip to side mount at a great price!

Very solid, great functioning mount. Enough room to fit over Magpul BUIS. Would recommend to a friend.

Solid mount
Zak from OH wrote on August 10, 2015:

The mount is a solid and works like a charm. The only issues I have is there is no longer enough room on my rail system for my EOTech, the mount, AND my backup rear sight. I had to remove the rear site just so I could have proper eye relief.

Great Deal

For the price this is unbeatable.

Very Satisfied

The standard height magnifier mount lines up perfectly with my eotech, and is very solid. I am very satisfied with this mount, and I see why they always sell out!

Excellent customer service, great product at a very competitive and reasonable price. Packaged and shipped perfectly. The mount is good, but not perfect, it could use some improvement with how it attaches to the rail. But don't be miss led by my comment here it is for sure good enough!! Happy with my purchase and a satisfied customer!

Works great on PA's 6X Mag with EOTech 552
Aaron Brown from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

Ordered this mount along with my PA 6x Magnifier. PA is excellent in processing your order and shipping it the same day! Every order I've placed (4+) have been processed and shipped the same day (or next business day if ordered after hours on a weekend). The mount is rock solid, I was initially eyeing the Samson Quick Flip mount when I was looking at PA's 3x Magnifiers. The Samson wouldn't work with the 6x and I was a little disappointed at first, but once the mount arrived and I realized I saved $61, I was pretty happy. The flip to side action is very solid, this mount will not flip on its on, it takes a deliberate action to move it to the side (or back), but it's not difficult, and can easily be done by one hand. The mount and Magnifier held up great at the range with over 200+ rounds fired. Would definitely reccomend. This mount with an EOTech 552 will give you Absolute co-witness.

Good quality for less $$
Matthew LeRoy from CO wrote on August 10, 2015:

I really like this flip to side., matches the function and quality of others minus the cost. I have no review for longevity yet and how long the mechanics of the mount will remain solid and tight, but so far excellent product.

Excellent FTS
Nicholas Hebert from IA wrote on August 10, 2015:

I ordered the EOtech combo pack with the PA 3X magnifier. I was so pleased with the performance and clarity I decided to continue with it but wanted it to be mounted on the rifle at all times. So with how happy I was with PA, their products and service, this mount was a no brainier. With that said, I am very pleased with this mount. Very solid, the unit locks in place both up-rite and to the side, and allows for rear button manipulation of the EOtech sight, even if right up tight. I have purchased from PA many times, and I will again. I am forever a PA customer.

FTS mount
Steven Birchfield from MD wrote on August 10, 2015:

Mount works great. I didn't want something that had to many moving parts. Kinda a K.I.S.S kinda of person. The mount positioned the Primary Arms LER magnifier perfect behind my EOTECH XPS2-2.

Very pleased
Matthew Hammond from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

The locking nut is very tight, I had to use a wrench to tighten it down, but that probably means I won't have to worry about it coming off or loosening on the rail. I thought about buying the quick release version, but don't really see any reason to need to take it off, so I'm pleased with my purchase. I'd put it against the much more expensive Eotech version any day of the week. Solid, good product.

Works great.
John S. from PA wrote on August 10, 2015:

I got this mount to work with a magnifier I have. I have it paired up with the P.A. Classic red dot on a high cantilever mount and it lines up perfectly. Good solid mount, with smooth flip to side action which also locks in tight. It's an excellent buy for the money.

Great service
Ed D from AL wrote on August 10, 2015:

excellent product. even better customer service.

Ray from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

What can I's a mount. Well, it is a mount that is very well constructed. I prefer it over the deluxe model that has a QD thing, but who really needs that for a magnifier that has a flip-to-side feature? The flip-to-side feature is perfect. It is stiff for running around but when you need to really use it, it turns over like a new car's engine.

Chris Casale from NY wrote on August 10, 2015:

Processing & Shipping was unbelievably fast. I wish all companies operated this way. So smooth that I ordered more gear, like their red dot sight, 3x magnifier and cantilever mount. Same experience with all of the items. I will continue to order from Primary Arms. I have not set these items up on my Sig716 Patrol rifle yet, but when I do, I will add more to this review relating to performance.

Good quality mount!
T HALL from WA wrote on August 10, 2015:

Mounts tight to rail with no wiggle. Flip to side function locks with NO wiggle, also. Uses 13mm socket to tighten. This mount feels like pretty good quality - the best you're gonna find cheap so no point spending more on Brand X. This is Made in China, so minus 1 star.

Awesome product, great Price
Adam Carparelli from NC wrote on August 10, 2015:

This is a great mount, aligns well with my Aimpoint Pro. flipping the magnifier out of your way is a simple push (enough where it wont flop out of your way accidentally) while bringing it back behind the optic requires a light pull backwards and then flip over. engagement is positive (no rattling in either location). I purchased this with the 3x LER magnifier and have been extremely satisfied with the combination

Excellent product as always! Fit is perfect. Post office was slow to ship but I got a cpl of update emails from PA. 100% happy repeat customer!!

Great Mount
Southern_D from FL wrote on August 10, 2015:

To make a long story short, everything good I want to say about this flip mount has already been said many times by all the other reviews. It's solidly built and if you're in the market for a flip mount and this will fit your optic, I'd highly recommend this PA Flip to Side mount.

Great mount!
Braden from OH wrote on August 10, 2015:

Very pleased with the construction, stability, and function of this mount. The warranty is also a plus. Would buy again!

need three hands
N/A from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

The spring that holds the mount in place (flipped or unflipped) is very strong (happily) so it should be OK during firing (have not done that yet). Ring mounts are nice “ double screws. The only reservation I have is the plate that is wedged against the rail when the nut is tightened has a tendency to slide down, so you need three hands to hold the mount, hold the plate and then turn the screw. But once all this is done the mount is rock solid.

Brian Dow from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

I bought a magnifier when the mount was not available. The mount came available the next day. It would have been nice if they would have honored the $10 discount had I been able to buy them together the day before. Inquired via email buy did not get a response. Otherwise the product has been good.

Scott Heatwole from AR wrote on August 10, 2015:

I purchased this to go with a PA 3x deluxe magnifier and PA microdot red dot sight for my AR, and I've got to say that you will not find a better product for the money. I'm extremely satisfied with the setup, and shipping was stupid fast! I will definitely purchase primary arms products again...

Great product, I only have one complaint.
Scott from UT wrote on August 10, 2015:

I love this product. I am moving my PA magnifier from the standard mount to the flip-to-side mount. I would have given it five stars, but there is a discrepancy in the screws used on each mount. One has torx screws and the other uses an allen wrench. This is just a small inconvenience that doesn't really affect the product. Quality seems to be good and it functioned great when I tried it out for a bit without the magnifier attached. I'm looking forward to taking this out to the range.

Great w/the long eye relief magnifer.
SnaitN from PA wrote on August 10, 2015:

Works perfectly, locks up great. Using with the long eye relief x3.

Tried many mounts, I recommend this one for most..
Tattoo Dan from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

This mount is a great balance of cost and quality. I haven't found a single flip to side mount at this price that is anywhere near this quality. There are better mounts (depending on your needs) but they are at least double the price.. and I would feel safe saying they are not double the quality. On this mount there were a few nicks and scratches from assembly so if you are all about looks this one may not arrive perfect, but it does function better than the competition in this price range, no question. Highly recommended.

Flip to the side magnifier mount.
Mark C. from TX wrote on August 10, 2015:

Easy to install and easy to use. Pull back and push to the side and the magnifier is out of the way allowing easy use of the red dot alone. Fits tight to the rail, the magnifer doesn't flop around when moved to the side. Works as advertised. Primary Arms has always given me great customer service with fast shipping and delivery. Will definitely be purchasing from them again in the future.

Awesome FTS mount for the price!
Justin Kupinski from IL wrote on August 10, 2015:

Pro: Secure mount, doesn't wiggle at all. Works great with my Aimpoint clone! Con: Would be nice to have a push-button latch v the pull back style.

Works Great, Adds Versatility To Your Red Dot
OCinsomniac from GA wrote on August 10, 2015:

Being able to engage/disengage the magnifier with a quick flip gives your red dot scope mount added versatility. Couldn't believe how close to center the red stays when the magnifier unit is dismounted and remounted. Great for going from short range to mid-range shooting in a hurry.

Your mount works great and came with a nice price tag. It is very comparable to the higher price name brand ones.

Tim from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

I am very pleased with my purchase of this flip to side mount. I mounted it with the primary arms deluxe 3x magnifier behind an EOTech xps2-0 and so far havent had any issues. I am thinking about getting another for my other gun. When flipped to the side it locks very securely and doesnt flop around like some of the cheaper ones out there.

Bought this FTS mount for my 3X magnifier to use with my 512 Eotech. Works great! Just wish I would of bought this first before all the other cheap mounts I've used prior.

Very Good Magnifier Mount
Yogi Bear from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

Using this with a 2X Hensoldt Wetzlar anti tank gun magnifier on a S&W M&P15A. The mount is tall enough to clear the rear BUS. The barrel on the magnifier is a non standard diameter so I did have to use a spacer which I also got from Primary Arms to kluge a fit. I just needed one half of a spacer to get the magnifier tight inside the mount. The quality of the mount is excellent. It is a bit tight to flip the mount to the side but I like that because when it's in position it's solid. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Great magnifier mount!
T.B from CA wrote on August 10, 2015:

I bought this magnifier mount because I've tried few other magnifier mounts. All of them broke after shot 400 rounds. I should've bought this magnifier mount at first. I was wasted a lot of money on other magnifier mounts. I'm regret it but now I got perfect magnifier mount for my rifle.

The flip to side magnifier mount seems sturdy but I had issues mounting it and my magpul rear sight at the same time.

Primary Arms Flip To Side Magnifier Mount
David T. from AZ wrote on August 10, 2015:

I like the magnifier, but it does have a bit of play in it when it's flipped to the side then back again behind the red dot. You need to push it a bit so it centers again.

Primary Arms Flip To Side Magnifier Mount, Standar
FLH from AZ wrote on August 10, 2015:

Use this on a AR15 flatop w/Ecotech, magnifier lines up perfectly with the Ecotech, solid build, I shoot left handed and had mount so it flips to the left side of the rifle.

How to fit with Sightmark Ultra Shot Reflex
Paul Davidson from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

If you have a Sightmark Ultra Shot Reflex sight you will have to order the PA FTS TALL Mount! You will also have to buy the Yankee Hill Machine EOTech Co-Witness Riser Mount to to raise the height of the Sightmark Ultra Shot. This is the only way to get the two to line up correctly as the PA Standard Height Mount is too tall for the Sightmark sight. It puts the magnifier ~5mm above center of the Reflex sight so you can see the top of the frame through the magnifier. The YHM-220 Eotech riser is ~7.7mm tall and the PA FTS TALL mount will raise the magnifier ~2.8mm higher then the standard mount PLUS the ~5mm higher it already sits above the Reflex = ~7.8mm. This brings the magnifier and reflex sight in line.

Very Robust
Josh from IL wrote on August 10, 2015:

This is my first experience with a flip to side mount and very happy with it. The spring tension is a little high but it is so sturdy I am not worried about being too forceful when pulling back on the mount to flip it to the side.

Rhett W from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

Love the product. Best flip to side that I've used. High quality, good price, and great customer service.

Great mount
N/A from CA wrote on August 10, 2015:

I really like this flip-to-side mount. It's solid, and secures the optics well. It's hard to engage and disengage the flip-to-side feature which will prevent any accidental flopping-around of the optic due to accidentally disengaging it. Of course, as with the cantelever mount I purchased before, the tension screw head sticks out pretty far; so, you can bean yourself with it if you have to get down with your weapon or low crawl with it.

Highly Recomended
Juan Garcia from N/A wrote on August 10, 2015:

I finally got to go to the range and try it out and all I can say is that for the money it was a solid purchase. It goes perfect with my Eotech xps2 and so far I am happy with the purchase
