emailed Primary Arms with question on my Tavor with Aimpoint Pro. They sent me quick reply with this mount and 3x magnifier with long eye relief. What a nice set up on my Tavor. This wasn't my first purchase from Primary Arms and again won't be my last. Class act with wonderful customer support. Thanks again and buy it already you will love it.

Great Mount


Great product, great price, fast shipping.

Great Product


Great product. Fits my LMT MRP verry well and still allows clearance of Lucid magnifier and Troy sights!

Works like a Charm!


I am using this in conjunction with the AD-ETECH-R ... Works great together!! I have this mounted on the AD-ETECH-R and with a EOTech XPS2. Lines up perfectly, holds tight and QDs very nicely!! Great purchase!! Thanks!!

american defense swing mount


I am very pleased with the quality and smooth operation of this mount.The swing feature,allowing the magnifier to rotate 180 degrees and slightly down worked perfect behind my eotech xps2 mounted on sig 556r.The ability to quickly change from magnified to non-magnified is a huge benefit!The mount securely held my magnifier in both positions.You'll be very satisfied with this product.Primary arms has done it again with quality products at a great price with super quick shipping !!

Fantasic mount w/ above & beyond customer service!


I originally placed the order for my PA 3x Long Eye Relief Red Dot (PA3XLER) Blem with an option from the drop down menu on that page instead of researching what would go correctly with my AD-T1-10 mount for my Aimpoint H1 Scope. After a little while of worrying about whether that was the correct thing to do or not, I decided to call and see if I could get any further info. I was told that the mount I ordered was going to put me about 1/4" too high, he quickly told me which mount would work correctly with my setup and changed my order with me on the phone so I didn't have anything left to worry about. Truly wonderful customer service, I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

Pretty good


I purchased this swing mount with the primary arms 3x magnifier, to put behind my aimpoint comp ml3, all on my AR.. The hinge works great and feels very solid when locked in either position. It puts the red dot above the fixed front sight as it should. but after using it at the range a bit i noticed little scratches on the bottom of the magnifier. thought it was from the magnifier rubbing on my rear flip up sight (troy battle sight) when changing positions but it was actually from the ejecting cases hitting it when the magnifier wasnt being used. im right handed and didnt want to have it swing to the left beacause my forward arm may hit it and my flash light is already mounted on the right. just put some duct tape on the magnifier ha

Function and Form


It works, seems solid and holds my lucid variable magnifier where it needs to be! The swing out function is the charm, along with the quick detach it does exactly what I need of it!



Its top notch quality piece. Works perfectly with my eotech. I am usually a little nervous buying something online as I like to make sure it works for my set up before purchase but Primary Arms website gives you the detailed listing and they are known for excellent customer service I had no worries. Thanks.
