Once I decide whether or not an Eotech XPS-2 will be bright enough to be easily seen during the day........I'm going to need to mount a magnifier. I know some of you might say "why mount a crappy magnifier, with an outstanding sight?" But I looked at the Eotech 3X magnifier, and can not understand while with the mount it runs around $550??? That's more than the sight!!
So who makes a good flip-to-the-side mount? I'm asking for all price ranges. I'm thinking the Mako 5x or 7x would be a good option? which means the mount must have a ring that separates in order to fit this type of magnifier.
I also know that Vortex makes a 3x magnifier now for around $150, but is 3x even enough to make that much of a difference? THANKS!!
