    3X Magnifier ?

    Hi,
    I am looking to add a 3X magnifier to my AR Red Dot (Vortex Spitfire 1X)

    The Vortex VMX-3T. Based on reviews, price / quality ratio seems good.

    Primary Arms has the PA3XLERGENIV in the same price range ($300).

    Any other good quality magnifiers for around $300 CDN or less ?

    Your advices are welcome. Thank you

    I don't use a red dot much, but have a vortex magnifier and it's as solid as anything I buy at that price level. Nothing to compare it to because I break out in hives at the thought of spending over $400 on glass

    I've been looking at the Burris tripler for some time now, for no other reason than I think Burris makes better stuff than vortex.

    I hope someone does a review on the new Bushnell 3x soon. I looked through it myself and thought the glass looked good, but my opinion doesn't really count since I have crappy eyes and couldn't really tell much of a difference betweem that and the Eotech magnifier (albeit the comparison I did was only from inside the shop).

    Hi guys, thanks for the replies, it is greatly appreciated.
    I'll try to find a review on the Bushnell 3X. Reliable Gun's offers it at $250, and Bullseye has it for $243, which is not bad at all if works really well.

    Cabelas does not seem to offer the VMX-3T. Too bad, cuz they have good specials once in awhile.

    Waynetheman, would you know where they sell the Burris AR-Tripler in Canada? Been looking around a bit and did not find it and I really dislike the amazon way...

    Don't forget, Reliable does price match as well, just ask.

    Well reliable gun has it but their ad doesn't show the mount which is kind of a deal breaker. I haven't fully decided which I want yet so I haven't been shopping too specifically.

    Doesn't show the mount? You mean from a different angle or something? Because it looks like the mount is included in the image I posted above. I've also seen the mount in person, it is definitely included and it is a flip to side, not twist off.
