Nice value for the price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on March 29, 2014
I really like the magnifier with the ability to adjust focus and adjust the centering of the red dot. The slide to side feature is generally quick can catch once in a while and slow down your transition. All in all it's is a great addition for the money. I am always surprised by the cost and quality of sight marks products
Pros: Adjustable focus and clear lens
Cons: Slide to side can be clunky...
Would recommend: Yes

Good for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 31, 2014
Easy to mount. Clamp adjust so you can tighten firmly. Great for the price. Even if someone gave me an eotech, I would sell it and buy this magnifier and keep $300
Pros: Lines up great with eotech 556, easy to install, great value
Cons: None yet...
Would recommend: Yes

good product not so good service

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 26, 2013
the product I feel is good seems to be of quality. but will probably not order from this site again. you are better off just calling sightmark and paying the extra money to get it. I ordered my magnifier in april and was supposedly in stock according to this site. and had to wait two months for it on back order. your best bet is to call ryan at sightmark, he is the only one there and he knows his stuff and very helpful.
Pros: easy set up ...

5x magnifier

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 25, 2013
This 5x magnifier does exactly what I wanted, I feel that 3x is to little magnification for 100 yards. 5x works just right. The slide to the side QD mounts works well & is simple. I particularly like the QD mount. Along with the QD red dot I can quickly remove them & change to my 4x12 mil dot QD mounted scope for longer shots without any loss of zero. The clarity on the 5x magnifier is very good & the focusing ring works well although there is a very slight image wobble when rotating it. I have the magnifier behind a Sightmark QD digital red dot, for some reason there is a slight "ghosting" of the red dot redicle. It is a little annoying but manageable. Overall for the price it does what is expected.
Pros: great price, QD mount, good clarity
Cons: slight ghosting with Sightmark red dot...
Would recommend: Yes

Works as expected

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 14, 2013
The ghosting of my Eotech reticle makes 100+ yard shots a challenge as its not clear what part of the dot is center. It's new, I have to play with it.
Pros: Inexpensive
Cons: There is ghosting of the Eotech reticle at 5x mag...

Sightmark Magnifier

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on January 20, 2013
Obviously, thus is a great deal compared to other similar products.....but with optics you get what you pay for.
I needed a good and fair priced magnifier.

Pros: good deal
Cons: maybe a little under par...

Bass parallax.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 11, 2013
At first glance this is a good looking magnifier but when I set it up in front of my reflex (sitemark), I see 3-4 dots. This is because the centerline of the magnifier sets higher than the center line of the reflex. I guess they set this thing up for an aimpoint or something besides their own site.
Pros: Good if you don't have a sitemark reflex
Cons: Cannot get rid of multiple dots on reflex...
Would recommend: No

5X magnifier

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on July 6, 2012
Not really sure how this will work out. I like the design but it will not focus downrange without the red dot becoming blurry. Found an "in between" spot that might work.
Pros: good price and functional for what its supposed to do
Cons: hard to focus. Either focus on red dot or target downrange but not both...
Would recommend: No
