Ok, I got a few stupid questions on this subject. I have a RRA flat top with an EoTech 512 but I'm not happy at the moment. I don't need or want an expensive magnifier as I'm not a Cop or Military but my range behind my house could be set up to make 600-800 yard shots but I can't see that far.

I see inexpensive magnifiers from 3x, 5x and 7x but don't really know how this will look using the Eotech, so my first question is how much of a magnifier could I use with the 512

My second question is how would say the 7x magnifier look just using my irons and ditching the Eotech while out doing distance shots? If going this route will work then I may do that.

The gun is intended for home defense first so the Eotech will go back on it when I'm done on the range, thats one reason I don't want a traditional scope.

We have 3X and 5X magnifiers that will work with your 512. Both under $100. Our flip to side mount will add $40. If you used a magnifier without the EOtech you would have nothing to aim with. The front iron won't work.

This is our 3X deluxe in the flip mount.

That's why those shorty Eotechs are nice.

Could you post your thoughts and a range report of the magnifier you ordered? I am thinking of getting one for the same reasons you listed.
Thanks

Not to thread hijack, but I was wondering if the magnifier in the picture would work with an Aimpoint CompC3 or just Eotechs.

It will as long as the mount is the right height. What mount is your Aimpint in?

Will your magnifier work with an EOTECH 516 ?
The 516 has a slightly taller mount on it.

The Magnifier will but our mount is not tall enough. You can use our 3X deluxe in a LaRue LT-649 Tall flip mount

I ordered the premuim 3x w/flip mount from primary arms, can't wait for it to get here! Gonna stick it behind a bushnell holosight, the one that looks like an eotech.

What about the EOTech 517? Whick package do you recommend? I don't want to spend $400 on a Samson package for something I won't use all the time.

Our 3X deluxe for $99 + a LaRue LT-649 Tall $150 Will do the trick

OK, I am now HAPPY! Installed the 3x Deluxe and after a little adjustment to the EoTech I can now hit what I am aiming at. I don't have pics of the target but I am using the small shoot-n-c targets and actually placed the 4 small circles that they include with the target on my cardboard all around the target and can hit them at 50 yards every shot, just guessing they are 2" round?

I'm sure this is nothing to most guys that shoot alot but for me this is great! :supergrin:

Also, a big thanks to Marshall for the quick shipping, had it to me the same week I ordered it, with all the area wide snow storms I was surprised.

Sounds good, I am ordering the deluxe as soon as I get back in town. Where do I find my LaRue mount?
