This magnifier is a great value for the money, vortex' warranty is top notch, and the glass is clear and free of blurring or inconsistencies near the edges. Why spend three times as much money for an aimpoint or eotech when this does the same job? I've heard some people have issue with the thick rubber coating that covers the majority of the magifier. I can see how this might be and issue for those with taller BUIS (does not affect mine, whic are mounted offset to the right side). What i have noticed is the focus adjustment does not seem to make much of a difference in clarity. However, this does not matter, considering the glass appears clear to me at any distance target.

For the money this magnifier can't be beat! It isn't an aimpoint but you can buy four or five of these for the price. The only thing I disklike is the rather large rubber piece, it could have been smaller diameter. The alignment device is a great feature too! Buy it you won't regret, especially with lifetime warranty.

Pros:  clarity of optics; relative low cost, abilty to center the dot
Cons:  bulky diameter, med short eye relief
Would recommend:  yes

I'm using this behind an aimpoint micro-T. The supplied mount sits a mm or two beneath absolute cowitness. This makes it a close fit, too close for magpul mbuis, but barely cleared ARMS 40L. I will be getting a pivot to side mount in the future which rides a little higher. Being able to adjust the red dot so its centered means the magnifier doesnt have to line up perfectly to work perfectly. Optics are not amplified bright like ACOG; S&B, they are 1:1 brightness of naked eye vs scope which is totally usable compared to magnifers that are distorted, blurry, and dimmer than what you see with the naked eye. 1/5th the cost of the competetion; just as good!

purchased this to put behind my aimpoint micro t-1, used a larue pivot mount. Fits easily into the mount and the clarity was excellent. My mount is high enough that it worked for my BUIS, but I agree with the other reviewer that the rubber is too thick. The only thing I didn't like was that it has a rubber ring on the eye piece side that my eye gets too close to, in order to get the full magnifier picture. I took the rubber off and seemed to be more comfortable for me too use without being worried I would get hit in the eye from the recoil. Otherwise worked for me.

Great addition for a red dot easy set up and centering. The Rubber around the device could be a little tinner.
