    I have an EOtech holo sight. I like it. have plans to build a somewhat nice full length or mid AR I'd be comfortable shooting out to about 300 yards, no more.

    I have never heard of the concept of a magnifier till I saw some pics.
    will teh magnifiers work with my EOtech? and is there a system where one can quickly slide the magnifier out of position and back again? I assume perhaps no larue no care?

    how much am I looking at? hopefully a bit less than my eotech.

    yeah I know. but the magnifier is useful as it can be moved out of the way for 1x shootin. and again...I like the eotech I already have.

    anyone aware of a clone of the eotech with pivot mount? google is showing signs of one from bushnell, but I can't actually find it.

    Well seeing that the magnifier is $400 + laure mount and a accupoint is under $500 + larue mount. You could sell the eotech and use the money you would of used for magnifier + mount. Get a accupoint w/ larue mount and be ahead and with a much more useful sight.
