The Vortex Optics Micro 3X Magnifier increases the range at which you can use your red dot or holographic sight without adding a ton of bulk to your rifle like other magnifiers on the market. The lightweight, compact, and crisp red dot magnifier comes with a quick detach flip to side mount that allows you to switch between 1x and 3x in a matter of seconds. The flip mount uses a cam system that engages and disengages with pressure without the need for a button. With a 2.64” eye relief, you can still quickly get behind your red dot and pick up the reticle for fast target acquisition. Like other Vortex scopes, this magnifier is Nitrogen gas purged to prevent fogging and is fully sealed to protect from water.

Note: does not work with prism scopes

Needs washers

by -

I just received this today and I noticed if you don't use the Riser mount that the magnifier is loose on the mount. I had to put a washer under each screw. Other than that it works great and I love the compact size

Looking forward to try it

It looks great and gives me a good co-witness with both my 300 blackout and my ar 9 I haven't got a chance to shoot with it what I can say is primary arms was great and price was good the shipping was good

So far so good

The product showed up packaged good it is a nice clear optic the quick detach and its size is what sold me on this. It is easly removed and reinstalled on another firearm if you choose to I excited to try it at the range I haven't got a chance to try it so thats why it's only a 4 star

Use the proper screws


The magnifier comes with a lower 1/3 riser and screws specifically for when you have the riser installed. If you use the proper screws then you don't need washers.

Excellent for the money

It’s small, it’s light, the glass is exceptional and clear. Mine is on a Unity mount and works perfectly. 3k rounds on it at this review, no issues. Only con is the eye relief is very short.

Best 3x magnifier for the money

by -

I just built up a new 14.5" AR and wanted to set it up with a red dot + magnifier. I had picked up the Holosun AEMS but I poured over reviews of 3x magnifiers. EoTech was just out of my budget so it was PA, Holosun, or this Vortex. PA's SLx was gonna be too small of an eyebox. Holosun was too big of a body. Vortex was right where I needed. Clear glass, light weight, sturdy body, good lower 1/3 height out of the box.

Great Optic

Friend had one so decided to get. If 3x's is good for your needs you will not be disappointed. Just as good to me as a the ones that cost almost double the $.
