Sightmark Releases 3x “Tactical Magnifier Pro”

sm19060_main

Sightmark has announced the release of their “Tactical Magnifier Pro” in 3x magnification complete with easy flip-to-side mount. The new mount is designed to work out-of-the-box with standard Aimpoint, EOTech, and similar optics. Sightmark rates the sight as both shockproof and fogproof and should handle almost all abuse in its armored tube.

Not content to simply put a magnifier in a tube, the Pro series includes windage and elevation adjustments to put the reticle in the center of the sight picture. Further, eye relief was increased to 3.5″ so no more “scope eye” trying to zoom in on a target.

Retail is set at $179.97 and is currently shipping direct from Sightmark to consumer and distributors.

Sightmark Introduces New 3x Tactical Magnifier Pro

Rapid flip-mount design for short and long range targets

(MANSFIELD, TEXAS) – Sightmark is proud to release the new 3x Tactical Magnifier Pro, offering versatility by increasing the magnification of accompanying sights for greater range and improved target acquisition. In one swift motion, the new flip mount design makes it fast and easy for shooters to increase their magnification for accompanying sights, creating a greater engagement range in any situation.

Director of Product Development Jonathan Horton said, “The new flip to side mount is easy to operate and provides a quick, smooth transition to offset your magnifier between engagements of long range and short range targets.”

The durable magnifier has been redesigned to provide increased eye relief, making it safe and comfortable to use for higher caliber weapons. The new Sightmark 3x Tactical Magnifier Pro has been improved with a rubber armor housing for increased durability, providing 3.5 inches of eye relief for refined shooting comfort. Shooters are aided with improved target recognition with the new 3x magnifier that also features external windage and elevation adjustments for reticle alignment. This Sightmark 3x Tactical Magnifier Pro is also EOTech and Aimpoint compatible.

    I cannot understand how companies can charge $500 plus for a magnifier.

  • Southpaw89

    Go ahead and throw some crosshairs into one of these, I can see some use for a low powered scope that can be folded out of the way.

    • noob

      hmm I wonder if you put them on a kel-tec sub2000 if the carbine would fold when the sight was flipped out of the way?

    • onehalfheffer

      Going for the silly route… how about a prismatic riflescope?

  • Gdub

    I agree with 500 being way much for a magnifier-
    However – hold an eotech magnifier next to the sightmark and you will see why the eotech is double the price

  • nadnerbus

    I put my Aimpoint on a cantilever mount to make room for a magnifier at some point, then realized I would probably never have enough money to justify spending another 500 or more bucks on one.

    I’m sure this is nowhere near as good as the Aimpoint or Eotech, but it might be just right for my purposes, which is to say shooting for fun. 4 moa dot on the Aimpoint anyway, so I don’t need to be too fine.

      Primary Arms has a Gen 2 magnifier that’s only $100. And it works surprisingly well. Would you bet your life with it? only you can determine that. But for plinking, targets and possibly hunting…it suffices.

      • DAN V.

        I got a primary arms tripler with the flip to side mount. Epic failed on the installation, where it flipped to the wrong side. Then I conpletely stripped all the screws trying to fix that.

        Wrote PA customer service and they replaced it for free. Then I ordered their microdot to pair with the tripler. Definitely a nice package on top of the AR.

  • Blake

    Why must the reasonably priced magnifiers and mounts all swing left into the field of view of a right handed shooter? I have my Vortex magnifier mounted backwards but that makes getting to the release button quite a bit harder.
