In January 2017, Aimpoint added three new accessory magnifiers to their product line, designed to work in conjunction with the company’s electronic reflex sights, Aimpoint 3XC-1 as a standard grade for use by civilian and Law Enforcement shooters, Aimpoint 3XMag-1 and Aimpoint 6XMag-1 as the higher grade products used in the tougher environments. The magnifiers may be used with the company’s quickdetachTwistMount, or with the newly launched Aimpoint FlipMount which allows the magnifier to be quickly flipped in or out of the optical axis, or removed from the firearm completely.

These magnifiers open up some interesting new opportunities for users of Aimpoint sights,” says Erik Jeppsson, Director Marketing & Sales- Professional Segment at Aimpoint. ”We now offer a new 3X-C magnifier at a lower entry price level, and a more advanced 3XMag-1 magnifier for demandingapplications. And upon request from our customers we also offer a 6XMag-1 magnifier for even longer range shooting which should only be used in combination with Aimpoint Micro T-2 sight as this model has been optimised to be used with higher magnification.

The Aimpoint 3X-C that was developed for both the civilian end user and law enforcement, can be used in conjunction with all Aimpoint sights for long-range aiming or observation. A variable (-2 to +2) dioptric setting allows this magnifier to be adapted to the individual shooter’s eye. The 3X-C can also be used as a handheld 3X monocular. Aimpoint magnifiers utilise the red dot in Aimpoint sights as the aiming reticle, eliminating the need for re-zeroing when shifting between non-magnified and magnified aiming. The 3X-C is encased in a shock absorbing protective rubber cover that also creates an ideal ergonomic grip. Internal optical adjustments make aligning the magnifier and sight quick and easy. The sight features 3x magnification with a field of view (FOV) of 7 degrees, being 103mm (4.1in) long at 220g (7.8oz) including the rubber cover.

The Aimpoint 3XMag-1 was developed for the professional user that needs a more rugged and military standard proven product. It can be used in conjunction with all Aimpoint sights for long-range aiming or observation. A variable (-3 to +3) dioptric setting allows this magnifier to be adapted to the individual operator’s eye. The 3XMag-1 can also be used as a handheld 3X monocular. Aimpoint magnifiers utilise the red dot in Aimpoint sights as the aiming reticle, eliminating the need for re-zeroing when shifting between non-magnified and magnified aiming. The 3XMag-1 is encased in a shock absorbing protective rubber cover that also creates an ideal ergonomic grip. Internal optical adjustments make aligning the magnifier and sight quick and easy. The sight features 3x magnification with a 7 degrees FOV, being 117mm (4.6in) long at 230g (8.1oz) including the rubber cover.

The Aimpoint 6XMag-1 was specifically designed for use with Aimpoint MICRO T-2 and was developed for the professional user that needs a more rugged and military standard proven product.

The Aimpoint FlipMount is a quick attach / detach mount that can be quickly flipped in or out of the optical axis. The FlipMount is designed primarily for use with Aimpoint magnifiers, but can also be used to mount other optical equipment with a 30mm tube. The FlipMount is offered in two different heights (38.5mm/1.5in at 114g/4.0oz and 47.5mm/1.9in at 129g/4.6oz), being 40mm (1.6in) long and 54.5mm (2.1in) wide, to accommodate various sight mounts.
