RECOILtv Mail Call (s02e5): Why You Need Red Dot Magnifiers

A red dot is one of the first accessories we put on an AR. The Aimpoint Micro T-2 has earned its stripes for reliability and high quality, but outside the home you'll have trouble finding targets at any significant distances without magnification. Overcoming this limitation is as simple as adding a 3xMag-1 or 6xMag-1 magnifier from Aimpoint. Both feature a rugged housing and recessed adjustment screws for aligning your sight within the magnifier. With a flip-down, swivel quick-detach mount you can easily remove the magnifier to use as a monocular or store safely out of the way. A -3 to +3 dioptric setting allows you to adjust to your eyeglass prescription. See if it has a place on your rifle.
