We have been shooting with this Aimpoint 3X Magnifier on a LaRue Tactical QD Pivot Mount behind an Aimpoint T1 red. The Aimpoint Micro T-1 is a small red-dot optic that works very well. The Micro T-1 is a 1X (non-magnifying) parallax free optic with 4 night vision compatible settings and 8 daylight settings and a 4 MOA dot. One of the day settings is extra bright for use with laser protection glasses or in bright desert sunlight. Aimpoints 3X magnifying module is specially designed for military personnel, law enforcement, sport shooters and hunters. The Aimpoint Magnifier mounted with a LaRue Tactical QD Pivot Mount gives the shooter one hand operation, just grab the optic, pull back, and move it out of the way. Left handed set up of the LaRue Tactical QD Pivot Mount allows the sdhooter to bump it out of the way and back into place
Aimpoint 3X Magnifier - Great option most of the time. It can get in the way in certain shooting positions. With quick detach and / or pivot mounts this magnifier can really extend the effective range of your firearm.
LaRue Tactical QD Pivot Mount - Solid, mount adds value to the magnifier Allowing it to pivot out of the way keeps your firearm effective at both close range and long distance. Right handed shooters, pull the magnifier back while left handed shooters push the magnifier forward. When pivoted out of the way of the optic, the magnifier offers a quick magnifier for the shooter by quickly tilting the firearm. However the optic also blocks the shooters non shooting eye which can be a deterrent when scanning for targets.
Aimpoint Micro T-1 - One of if not the best optic we have used for carbines like the AR15, AK47, 10-22, etc. Lightweight, solid, well built. The magnifier is not a small item, so along with a full size AImpoint optic, the rifle can get big and heavy. The Aimpoint Micro T-1 keeps a rifle light weight even with the magnifier
