Vortex Micro 3X Magnifier

The Vortex Micro 3X is a compact 3 × magnifier designed for the reflective red dots and holographic sights.

The magnifier mounts between the red dot sight and the shooter’s eye, making it easier to aim at longer distances.

Magnifiers are commonly used by sport shooters, hunters and law enforcement.

The Vortex Micro 3X magnifier has a body made of precision anodized aluminum for high shock and corrosion resistance.

The tube was filled with nitrogen and carefully sealed, thus eliminating the fogging of the optics.

The magnifier is attached to the Picatinny rail with a massive single quik release lever, so mounting and removing the adapter takes a few seconds.

The adapter uses high-quality lenses covered with multi-layer anti-reflective coatings, which ensure high light transmission and a clear and sharp image.

Unlike other models of magnifiers available on the market, the Vortex Micro 3X magnifier has a wide field of view of 12.7 m by 100 m.

The optics are adjustable vertically and horizontally and the focus ring allows for precise and centric positioning of the viewed image.

Due to the large spring-loaded mechanism, the process of adding the magnifier to the Red Dot and putting it aside is quick and can be done with one hand.

Thanks to the attached riser plate, the Vortex VMX-3T magnifier can be mounted at two heights of lower 1/3 (40 mm from the base to the center of the sight) or absolute co-witness (37 mm from the base to the center of the sight).

The attachment is compatible with all Vortex collimators except for prismatic sights.

The Micro3x Magnifier will work with any of our red dots. The Micro3x will not work with prism scopes.

    Great listening Vortex!!

    I brought this a few weeks ago and have used it a lot already. I paired it up with my Vortex Strikefire 2 Red Dot and zeroing on target has never easier. The combo looks really awesome together. I didnt have any issues with the alignment out of the box. I have shot about 360 rds with it on and flipping it back and forth with the red dot. I have not had any issues with it so far. However I will keep an eye out for any missed alignment. With that being said I don’t expect to see any happen. The price is really reasonable when you realize its under 10cm. It is a solid build.
    From the video I researched about maginfiers before purchasing the first generation a lot of people had the same complaints about the way it flipped, and the size well Vortex heard you loud and clear this maginfier is awesome!!
