The VMX-3T Red Dot Sight Magnifier from Vortex is an optical accessory used to magnify the image transmitted by an unmagnified red dot sight. This secondary optic mounts directly behind the weapon's primary optic, allowing the shooter to co-witness standard AR-style iron sights. Additionally, the VMX-3T features windage and elevation correction that allows the shooter to align the magnifier with the red dot without affecting the impact point of the primary optic. When the extra 3x magnification is not required, an integrated quick-release flip mount allows the VMX-3T to be shifted aside so only the primary optic is visible.

Complementing the functionality of the VMX-3T magnifier is the image quality and durability needed for years of high-performance. The lens system is fully multicoated, allowing maximum transmission of available light from the primary optic. This magnifier's aluminum housing is finished with a corrosion-resistant hard coat and nitrogen-filled for weather-resistant operation. Combined with the long 3.25-inch eye relief and focusable objective lens, the VMX-3T is backed by Vortex's unconditional VIP Warranty.

        For close range i.e., within 50-200 yds on a AR15 to magnify a red/ green dot sight. Works well, easily swings out of way, solid construction. Only negative, I wish there was a rear lens cap.

        Comments about Vortex VMX-3T Reflex Sight Magnifier:

        I received this Vortex Vmx magnifier, was placed on my Daniel Defense AR 15 together with my Aimpoint ,the product looks good on my Rifle I feel like Im on swat team, this magnifier is a lot cheaper than any other product, and it really works with my Aimpoint Pro ,the target is now a lot closer in 100 yards, no problem zeroing it with my aimpoint, i did not even do anything , other than put it behind my aimpont , it works as advertised.I really like the idea that if you dont want to usemthe magnifier yoj can just flip it to the left and i will be ready to use my red dot.this ismindeed a very god product.i have this product now for 10 days k already used 900 rounds so far so good no problem with the attachment , did not get loose.

          Comments about Vortex VMX-3T Reflex Sight Magnifier:

          bought this to go behind an EOTech 516 on a 14.5 AR15. was hesitant at first and really debated spending the extra couple hundred $$$ to go with the EOTech G33. In the end, i am happy that i bought the vortex. If is a very clear site, with a very crisp image. Easily mounted and adjusted. Does not add a noticeable amount of weight either. My reason for a missing star is the lack of eye relief. I am not sure if it is a problem with all magnifiers, or just this one, but I have about 1.5-2" of eye relief at maximum, which makes shooting difficult at times. In the end, its minor, but worth noting.

          Mounted on AR15 directly behind Eotech 512. Was a little hesitant to add more weight to firearm, but it is not noticeable, especially considering the benefit it gives my aging eyesight. And what a clear sight! Have fired many rounds through it since mounting and am thrilled!
          One co-worker already ordered one for his AR after seeing mine, and several others leaning towards a purchase. Fantastic purchase I won't regret.

            Paired my vortex magnifier with an eotech xps2 and crystal clear. A viable alternative when comparing to the $400+ eotech magnifier and just as effective. I recently ordered a second magnifier to pair up with my eotech 512.

              Comments about Vortex VMX-3T Reflex Sight Magnifier:

              I have looked for three months for the right optics for my Daniel Defense 300 blk and finally chose the Vortex brand for the value, quality and versatility. I am buying the quick release from A.R.M.S. to mount both the Sparc 2 and the 3x magnifier. This gives me the option of quickly removing the magnifier for days that I know I am strictly short range hunting or carry both on the rifle for those tree stand days or open areas that I might need to bring the target closer. I looked at 1-4 variable scopes and 1-6 but I think this combo is the best all around option. I am very pleased with Vortex and I think this is the best bang for the buck setup.

                Super easy to install. Added it to my AR without any problems. I switched it to move to the right instead of the left for sight preference. Excellent product for the price. Why waste the money for an Eotech. Highly recommend the product.

                  I am new to shooting and have been looking a lot at different red dot magnifiers. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a magnifier, but also wanted to make sure I was getting a quality magnifier. I have not tried the EoTec or Aimpoint magnifiers but didn't want to spend the money for those.

                  I paired my Vortex with my Eotec 512. With the lift that was provided it lined up perfectly. Great magnifier and the flip mount is great as well. I was able to be extremely accurate at 100 yards.

                  Comments about Vortex VMX-3T Reflex Sight Magnifier:

                  I am using the VMX-3T magnifier behind my Eotech 512 and above my retracted magpul MBUS rear sight. The VMX makes a great addition to my AR-15 setup, allowing a better sight picture of those smaller targets 50-200 yards. The glass is very clear, especially for a magnifier around $[$].The flip to side mount is good, not great. The height alignment with my 512 is perfect without the ~1/8" riser (included with purchase). The only problem, as stated by many reviewers, is that the magnifier flips to the left side when not in use, essentially covering the left eye of a right handed shooter. This defeats the purpose of the zero eye relief the Eotech offers (normally shot with both eyes open). Again, as many have said, this is remedied by mounting the magnifier on the opposite side, allow it to flip to the right. This does, however, place the button on the front right side of the mount. This requires a lot of training to get used to in a tactical situation if you plan to keep your right and engaged with the trigger. I plan to add a spring-loaded mount to allow the magnifier to automatically release to full open position when the button is activated. I will then be able to reach under my rifle with my left hand to engage the release.There is a bit of play when it is locked in position, but it hasn't been enough to be noticed while sighting under movement or recoil.My overall opinion of this magnifier is very high, and I've already recommended it to a few family members.

                    Very satisfactory match-up with the Eotech EXPS3-2 holo sight on the M4A1. Glass and mount-dismount are as good as Eotech's magnifier at close to $300 less cost, eye relief is superior. That might make a difference to the user in choosing where to locate the holo or red dot sight and the magnifier in relation to one another. You won't be disappointed.

                    I'm super pleased with this mount and magnifier combo. Works better than I expected, clear optics that stand up so far to the forces of my 223. I would prefer that it swing the other way but it's not hard to get used to and locks in both positions very well. Perfect for a lefty. Half the price of EoTech & Aimpoint but close in performance.

                    Comments about Vortex VMX-3T Reflex Sight Magnifier:

                    The magnifier mounts very easily, glass is nice and clear and the centering dials are great and work as advertised. The pushbutton swing mount is easy to use with your off hand to quickly transition back and forth. It hugs up nice and close to an Aimpoint Pro in the mount that optic comes with. Unlike other Vortex optics, however, this magnifier is made in China, not the Philippines.

                    This is a great product, the swinging mount makes it really easy to move it out of the way real quick and the clarity is out of this world, I would highly recommend this product.

                      Comments about Vortex VMX-3T Reflex Sight Magnifier:

                      I was surprised at how good this maginfier was. I am very pleased to see this alternative to the megabucks EOTech magnifier (rediculous!). This magnifier lined up perfectly with my EOTech holographic sight mounted on my AR platform- no adjustment needed. The only thing I recommend is that you reverse the mount so the magnifier flips to the right instead of the left. This avoids it blocking your left eye when shooting unmagnified with both eyes open. Not sure why Vortex has it originally set up to flip to the left, but it is an easy fix, just mount the magnifier in reverse and the push button will face front instead of rear - no problem operating, just find a quick action hand motion that suits you. Perfect for three gun, target shooting and defense. High quality optics and materials, seems very rugged. I highly recommend this if you don't want to spend stupid money on the EOtec magnfier.
