Vortex VMX3 Magnifier with Swing Mount Combo
With 3x magnification and a durable armored construction, the Vortex VMX3 magnifier can be used to quickly add precise, longer ranging ability to red dot type sights—including the Vortex StrikeFire red dots. The VMX3 is easy to use and does not require any special sight-in. Just zero-in the red dot scope as normal, then add the VMX3 behind the scope for the additional magnification.
Go from 1x to 3x in One Quick Move with the Swing Mount
The Swing Mount provides absolute co-witness height. Once mounted, a specialized cam on the Swing Mount allows you to swing and lock the VMX3 magnifier in place behind your red dot sight. Then, you can choose magnified or unmagnified views at will. The quick-detach design allows you to quickly add or remove the system from your rail with ease and without tools. Machined aluminum construction and hard-coat anodization make the Swing Mount one tough, lightweight accessory—for both right- and left-handed shooters.
As a secondary application, the VMX3 can also be used as a compact hand-held monocular.

Comments about Vortex VMX3 Magnifier with Swing Mount Combo:
I Was going to uses this hopefully to mix and match with my aimpont magnifier to replace the current removable mount with something that flips it out of the way keeping it attached to the rifle. If the optic was equal toe the aimpoint i was going to keep that as its half the cost.
The cam is a great idea. However to rotate it it pitches down a little over the rail. This presents a problem as it contacts my BUIS and blocks the rotation. You might consider moving the optics further forward, but the eye relief is less than the aimpoint. You almost have to get your eye right on the magnifier for a full picture, where the aimpoint you have a few inches of relief.
I do have to say, i like the clarity better than my aimpoint. The image is cooler looking through the Vortex, or maybe the aimpoint is just warmer. I don't know if its coatings or what, but I do like the Vortex better in that aspect.
It's not an optima solution for my primary AR. I'll probably gat a 22cal ar for plinking and put it on that and go for a larue tactical pivot mount on my primary and the aimpoint.
