Primary Arms QD Flip to Side Magnifier Mount - Standard Height
NOTE:The magnifier will NOT line up with raised base optics such as the 7mm extended base EOTechs!
Ratings & Reviews
Not for sight....dummies
It isn’t for a scope or red dot....it’s for a magnifier and if they are off quality (zero won’t matter due to parallax correction)
Worked for awhile
When I first got this and put it on it work well for what it was. It didn't take long before the mount developed so much play in the pivot that it was barely usable. I was able to get the EO-Tech reticle in the bottom right hand of the magnifier but that was the closest I've been able to get it to center after it became sloppy. I didn't abuse it the gun its on is stored in a safe and its been only lightly used. I've pulled it off the gun pulled the magnifier out of it and tried to reinstall everything to get it to naturally sit where it needs to be so that you can use it and I can not get it to work any better than it is currently. The only way I can get the reticle centered is if I crank the adjustment all the way over in the magnifier and then physically pull mount over and hold it where the reticle is centered. Visibly you can see that it sits off center where it naturally rests.

Used this to mount a PA 6X magnifier behind an Eotech 512 on my flat-top AR. Aligns perfect! It comes with a detailed instruction manual and installation tool, making installing it a piece of cake. Its much, much sturdier and more robust than the Sightmark setup that was previously installed...no more slop! Easy to use, functional, and well-made. Very nice, PA!
Primary Arms quick detachable flip to side magnifi
Works great an they make it easy to choose the right mount I was looking for at a great price!
Great mount that doesn't break the bank
I almost spent an additional $120 on a competing brand but decided to try this. Glad I did as it gets the job done nicely and works as expected.
Primary Arms Flip to Side Magnifier Mount
by George Luginbill
I received the product in a very timely manner.Installation was easy to understand and it functions as advertised.
Sloppy fit for pivot pin.
The pin that is the pivot axis for the has a very sloppy fit in the holes of the moveable piece. Obvious when moving it or while it is in position behind the Eotech. I haven't had a chance to get to the range so I don't know if this will create a problem in use.

I would like to start by saying I appreciate the customer service from Primary Arms, they truly appreciate military service members! outstanding! This review however is on a sloppy made "flip to side" mount that does not return to zero on your dot. The QR lever and mount to the rifle are superb in quality but, and this is huge, The flip to side hinge in particular is held together by pins that are loose and when flipped up, this leads to a shaky sloppy optic that will never hold zero! It Wont even keep the same sight picture when used with a magnifier. Unacceptable at any price point... :(

What can I say, solid and well engineered from the adjustment of the QD tension to the flip functionality. For $69 (when bought with a magnifier) you really can't go wrong, great quality and as always super fast packing and shipping from Primary Arms. These guys are fast becoming my goto guys for anything gun related they are awesome.
Great design, could be improved
I bought this mount as a combo with a PA magnifier. I found the mount to be loose on the shaft where it is held by 2 roll pins, tight on the shaft, holes in mount were loose. The movement might be within a usable tolerance, but not acceptable to me. Rather than send it back and maybe get more of the same, I tapped the holes and installed 8-32x1/2" set screws. The mount is now perfect for my needs and re-centers the dot reliably, no more slop. The short of it is that I prefer this style where the pin is held in engagement under spring pressure which is easy to manipulate, but secure (I don't think it could be accidentally flipped either way). Would buy again as I haven't found a better mount (for less than $162).
Needs a redesign
by Darrik Houck
The retaining pin is not secure and when you rotate the sights the pin can fall out of socket. The length need to be extended and a cotter pin or some other retaining device implemented to prevent the pin from falling out. Otherwise the mount works good.
Primary arms quick detach mount
by Nathan Lee
I have nothing but good things to say about primary arms. I had an issue with one of the mounts and Brett was really responsive. Excellent customer service and fast shipping.
Great Product and Fast delivery
by Robby Bryant
The flip side mount mounted easily to my AR and works as advertised. Solidly built, easy to install, and rivals any of the mega expensive mounts on the market today. The service and delivery were so good I later ordered 2-30rd MAGPUL mags and a coupler, with a repeat of the above. You cant go wrong dealing with these guys.

I've been a dealer for Primary Arms for a few years. I would say they have hands down the absolute best customer service of any company that I have done business with. They work as a team and follow up on every detail possible.The standard flip to side mount is very well made and will work for about 99% of the shooters out there today. I recommend this mount highly.tahco gunworksTim Hasselbach
