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.
