The Vortex 3x magnifier

The Vortex 3X Magnifier is an inexpensive red dot magnifier for those who do not want to spend out on an Aimpoint or Eotech but still want the benefits of a rapid switch between unitary power and 3X magnification. It comes with an ingenious quick detach mount that attached and detaches in seconds from any MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail. The mount allows the Vortex magnifier to swing out of the way of the red dot sight in an instant. The Vortex magnifier is rubber armored against bumps and knocks.
