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...

Vortex Magnifier

by Thomas Smith, from United States, PA Written on March 31, 2015
This was my first magnifier. I did plenty of research on several other manufacturers and from reviews I read I decided to get the Vortex VMX-3T. For the money is made sense. As always Optics Planet delivered it in a few days. I switched the base plate so the magnifier would flip to the right which put it out of my sight when using my EOtech sight. The optics are very good and clear and aligns nicely with the EOtech. Overall I would recommend this magnifier...
Pros:
  • Good value and clear optics
Cons:
  • none yet
Would recommend: Yes

Recommend to anyone

by Jack, from United States, CA Written on March 20, 2015
Great product. Recommend to anyone. Easily deployed and retracted to allow use of red-dot or iron sights. It is very easy to install and requires only a matter of minutes. The optics provide a very clear field of view....

Not a fan...

by dski, from United States, UT Written on March 16, 2015
Tried using this in conjunction with the Vortex sparc II. Bad eye relief and ended up moving to the Vortex pst 1-4 and sending this back. Better eye relief & usability. The other problem is that it sets the red dot way back on the rail. Like it much closer. I totally understand the use case and love my vortex scopes ( I have a diamondback, Viper HS and Viper PST) but this guy didn't work for me....

eye relief gets some getting used to

by kov1331, from United States, IL Written on March 10, 2015
This is my first 3x magnifier and the eye relief is very close and touchy. I haven't had much time behind it either so I'm not the best candidate for a review. I'll update this in a couple of months and a few hundred rounds....
Pros:
  • Warranty, Construction, Clarity
Cons:
  • eye reliefe

Vortex VMX-3T Magnifier with Flip Mount VMX-3T

by MJ, from United States, CT Written on March 9, 2015
This magnifier was purchased with the Vortex Strike Fire II. As I was very impressed with the Strike Fire I was not so impressed with the Vortex Magnifier for a few reasons. The eye relief is not the greatest and is about 2 inches. When I mounted this on my ar15 upper rail closest to the charging handle I felt as though I had to be on top of the magnifier to see clearly. Matter of fact it was so close I was afraid of getting hit by the recoil. This did not happen but you really have to get close to use this magnifier properly. The mount is built well but there is no adjustment of the magnifier back and forth like there would be in normal scope rings. The magnifier becomes part of the mount when two screws are used to marry them together. Since the eye relief is only 2 inches give or take, I couldn't mount a back up sight towards the rear near the charging handle. Instead, I have to mount a back up sight in front of the magnifier. All in all, this magnifier does what it is supposed to do and is a great price. You can find better but not at this price range. I would definitely recommend this product even with these two issues that I mentioned....

Vortex VMX-3T Magnifier

by ratboy, from United States, AR Written on March 7, 2015
Great glass! Poor mount. Got a LaRue Eotech magnifier mount for perfect alignment with my Aimpoint PRO (also on LaRue mount). Great price compared to Eotech and Aimpoint magnifiers and just as good. . . ....

Excellent Magnifier

by Bobby, from United States, OK Written on March 7, 2015
I am using this in conjunction with a Sparc II Red Dot and I must say I am thoroughly impressed. I previously had an EoTech 553. I don't believe I will ever use another optic combination. My brother was likewise impressed and will be using the same setup on his rifle. I am also going to re-purchase for my wife's 300BLK....

Worth Every Penny!

by Bigship, from United States, TX Written on March 5, 2015
I knew that the optics would be bright and clear. I knew that the quality would be acceptable. I didn't know it would fit the rail of my crossbow and if it did, line up with the EITech 512 Xbow holographic sight. The competition makes a great 3X magnifier (I own one on my primary hunting bow) but I didn't want to spend almost three times as much as the Vortex for another magnifier. The VMX-3T arrived in less than 4 days, and mounted on the scope rail of my Darton Rebel in less than 4 minutes. I've never touched the elevation or windage adjustment. It worked perfectly. The 512 Xbow multi dot and integrated rangefinder image was centered immediately. It never mattered where I positioned the magnifier along the scope rail. The image was always centered. So, I placed the two units to optimize my eye relief and haven't looked back. I also played with the flip position and decided that I liked it better to the left rather than the right. Thanks Vortex and Optics Planet....

good magnifier

by fatts, from United States, IN Written on February 24, 2015
This is a good magnifier. I have it on my rock river lef-t and it works great. The only bad to me is that hinge mechanism is a little loose so it has a little play in it but not enough to ruin a shot. I would definitely recommend this magnifier....
