so, I searched but could not find mention of the following setup. I have seen photos and such, but not of this setup as the Dominator mount is the issue. So's, I need advice.

I have an AR15 that has an EOTech 512 + GG&G accucam mounted on an RRA EOTech Dominator mount. I also have the YHM 2 piece railed handguards. I was starting to consider the Aimpoint 3x magnifier + Aimpoint twist off mount. given my setup above, could I even do it and how? Would there be room on the Dominator for the Aimpoint 3x AND the EOTech? Or do you have to move the EOTech off the Dominator and onto the YHM rails to make room for the Aimpoint? If so, does that not defeat the purpose of the Dominator mount/EOTech 512 setup? I guess I should know this before I consider buying. thanks!

no, this will not work. There isn't enough room to mount the Aimpoint 3X and the Eotech on the Dominator mount. You could remove the Dominator mount and put the sight back down on the upper receiver then you'd have plenty of room. Of course you'd need to get a rear flip up sight and you'd no longer have any use for the Dominator mount. I wouldn't even consider mounting the Eotech on the YHM rail system since it's not a free float 1 piece rail. It won't hold zero on that rail system.

I just traded for a Dominator mount myself, and I LOVE it, but this is that situation where I agree that the Dominator is NOT a good choice.

Sell the Dominator on the EE.

Purchase a LaRue EOTech mount and whatever your favorite folding rear BUIS happens to be.

That's all you need to be ready for the Aimpoint 3x magnifier.

I got to tell you, I am stoked with them. why someone would think they are not solid and not hold zero or are sturdy surprises me. They are very stout and sturdy. feel firm as hell, no slop, no play. do not know how much more of a better fit or quality would hold zero any better, but I am no pro. I have even seen people mount on them.

BTW, the setup I run has the EOTech on the top rail and just hangs over the delta ring just a tad.
