Most Helpful Positive Review Great magnifier
I bought this magnifier to use with my Aimpoint PRO on my Colt 6940. I did not see the point of spending $500 + on the Aimpoint magnifier. I already...

i like that this vortex magnifier has a lifetime warranty

by senior, from United States, CA Written on September 9, 2014
this magnifier sits perfect on my rifle. I first thought that the scope was going to sit a little too low but is not the case. it's nice to see that they put a windage and side dials on the magnifier as well. so far the quality of the lens very good. i like that the warranty is lifetime....

Good compromise

by trevor, from United States, WA Written on September 4, 2014
Note "fish eye" and very small "eye relief". Flip to side also takes some effort and left hand manipulation. The mechanism is not spring loaded. Definitely not best for quick engagement. Okay alternative for the price....

My title? Mr, mrs? Who cares

by Jonno, from United States, CA Written on August 30, 2014
Good optics, very clear , no distortion when used with my eotech. Latch needs improvement. It's set up on the wrong side so when you set it up for a right hander the latch button is in the front and harder to get to....

Pretty good

by MO Kid, from United States, MO Written on August 29, 2014
The eye relief was a little short for me and I'm 5'7". Still functional though just have to adjust a tad when using. It's great for the price and I threw it on one of my lower priced rifles. If you are on a budget this magnifier is pretty good. It seems to be a little better than middle of the road. I've only had it for a short time now so I can't really comment on lasting durability but I'm happy with it....
Pros:
  • Size
  • cost
  • Function
Cons:
  • Short eye relief

VMX -3T Magnifier

by Cooter, from United States, AL Written on August 26, 2014
I looked at several different magnifiers before I made my choice. I read many reviews an asked friends on Facebook gun pages. Other than the expensive eotech which is great, they all said this one or Burris. I had a vortex scope and it has great glass. Same here the VMX -3T has clear glass, and build quality is great. Would buy again in a sec and do recommend. Only con is there is a easy to latch that let you flip the magnifier to the side, but you have to flip it by hand or by flicking the gun a bit and it will flip to the side and latch, then the same when wanting to use it, but still not a problem and is very easy it is just some makers have model that are spring loaded and flip when you press the little button...
Pros:
  • Great glass,Price,Build quality, looks great
Cons:
  • Manual flip to the side and flip down
Best Used for:
  • AR/M4 platforms,Ak-47,Scar,etc

Great optic for the price

by KB, from United States, GA Written on August 18, 2014
I use this magnifier on an AR-15 with a Vortex Strikefire RDS. I don't need the high end stuff for recreational shooting and hunting and this system is great for way less than half the price. Eye relief on the mag take a little getting used to. Flip-up feature is a little stiff out of the box, but may get better with use. Overall, a very good value....

Highly recommended

by RC, from United States, WI Written on July 30, 2014
I own several optics from Vortex and love the performance and value that they provide so I wasn't too surprised when I installed this in front of my EOTech 512. The VMX-3T is just as good as the EOTech magnifier at 1/3 of the price. The product is solid and the optics are very clear. I plan to purchase another for a different rifle. You won't be disappointed....
Pros:
  • value
  • QUALITY OPTIC
Cons:
  • None

Vortex VMX 3T - Flip Mount

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 10, 2014
Excellent Magnifier (3x) for the price. The quality seems on par with the "upper class" magnifiers. Long term testing will be the best determination. However having a lifetime warranty is nice to know if something goes "bad". If a situation goes awry and the glass cracks/breaks, water finds it's way in or fogs for whatever reason; it's great to have the option to swivel this to the side and out of the way. So long as the swivel mechanism isn't damaged... I replaced the supplied mounting nut with a "wing" style nut for an improvised QD, if the whole thing needed to go. -- As described before, for a right handed user its swivel point is to the left so this is the only "current" bummer - IT DOES get in the way! Just doesn't feel or look right reversed. Vortex should address this in future releases. Most advanced users shoot with two eyes and especially in CQC/CQB. Also included is a shim and works great with my Aimpoint Comp ML3 - this wouldn't aligned properly without it. --- Eye relief is "Ok" and wearing glasses doesn't give you too much play room. The centering adj. screws allow you to "center up" the dot in the magnifier. Once the red dot optic is zeroed and the magnifier is mounted behind it, the dot may not be in the center of the sight picture(this will vary with each weapon). The weapons "zero" is not effected by this, it will still hit POA, but the sight picture is easier to use if the dot is centered. The easiest way to center the dot in the magnifier was to hold up t...

Great magnifier for the price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on March 30, 2014
For the price, the magnifier is terrific. Clear optics. Made in the USA. Quality build. Adjustments ensure that the red dot or holo sight reticles are centered. Easy to do. Only issue is the mount. The mount swivels the magnifier to the left -- into the shooter's field of view (for a right handed shooter). It's possible to reverse the mount (to swivel the magnifier to the right) -- but then, the push button to activate the swivel would be behind the mount. This also creates a requirement for additional space between the magnifier and the holo/red dot sight (for your finger to get at the push button). Overall though, if you can live with (or actually prefer) the magnifier swiveling to the left, this is a terrific magnifier for the price.
Pros: Very clear optics
Cons: Mount swivels the magnifier to the left -- into the shooter's field of view (for right handed shooters)...

Great for the price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on January 15, 2014
Don't have an eotech or aimpoint magnifier to compare, but the vortex magnifier seems clear to my eyes. Construction appears sturdy and the swing mount locks up well.
Pros: Clear, good eye relief...
