QD Mounts for red dot magnifiers

Postby dbooksta on Thu Mar 25, 2010 8:42 am

Which QD mounts will put triplers (e.g., Aimpoint 3XMag or Burris AR-tripler) at the correct height to use in front of EOTech HWS?

I'll continue to check on combinations that offer similar optical centers between magnifier and red dot, but the EOTech G23 magnifier will work with all standard red dots made for use mainly on AR type platforms. The G23 comes with a 7mm spacer that will raise the magnifier to center the optic if the red dot has the higher optical center realized by the quick release levers. The Aimpoint QRP mount will also give two different heights by adding a spacer. All that being said, the magnifier does NOT have to be perfectly aligned with the red dot. A quarter inch off does not make a big difference. The Aimpoint mount with or without a spacer will work well for your EOTech with a Burris or other 30mm tubed magnifiers.
