Can you use the aimpoint magnifier with any EOtech?

What mount do you have to use for the magnifier?

Anyone have pics?

Hi,

Yes you can. The mount that I used was the Sampson mount. It works great, even better than with the Aimpoint it was designed for. Here is a link to pics of my set-up. It has since been replaced witha TA31 ACOG.

Thats an interesting question -I thinking about the same thing myself,also does the magnifer REALLY make a difference? Is it worth it ?

I love mine it is a really fast magnified sight. A lot of people hate them or think they are gimicky.

One of the best things about this sight is that it will allow a two eyes open method of shooting. I have not tried it with the eotech but it works amazingly well on the Aimpoint M3.

Unlike other magnified sights the magnifier will allow you too see the magnified view when both of your eyes are open. In the back ground you can see the unmagnified view and the magnified view. The reason it works with the magnifier is because the bright dot forces your eye to see the magnified view as dominate but your left eye will still see every thing close up. This makes the magnifier system very fast. You are really seeing two views at once a 1x view and a 3x view.

What is the cheek weld like on that? Is it the same as for using just an EOtech or is your head higher?

Pretty much the same. Just put the weapon up and shoot with both eyes open. I guess I don't notice shooting any different with just the Eotech or with both. Some of my friend can't believe it is only 3 power.

No Backwards compatibility with older EOTech units will be the Achilles Heel. Too little too late.
