Vortex VMX-3T Magnifier with Flip Mount Review

Vortex have taken the opportunity to improve their 3x magnifier with the VMX-3T version. The Vortex VMX-3T magnifier comes with a spacer shim allowing both absolute and lower 1/3 cowitness on the AR platform. There are two adjuster knobs on the Vortex 3x magnifier enabling you to center the dot in the magnifier and a focus ring at the rear of the tube. It works perfectly with all the main Vortex, Eotech and Aimpoint models. Users are reporting that this unit has clearer, brighter optics and better eye-relief than the Eotech flip to side magnifier for less than half the price. However the mount flips to the left which can annoy some users. The flip mechanism, like that of the Burris is not spring-loaded and you cannot just reverse the mechanism as it will end up with the release button at the front of the unit. Vortex have an absolute no quibble guarantee – if your site is defective or damaged in any way, Vortex will replace it, no matter what the cause.
