Great Magnifier The ACME 1.5 - 5X Magnifier w/ Flip To Side ARMS Mount is a great unit. Being an older guy, my eyes are not what they once were. As a result I need a little help when shooting 50+ yards to getting a good bead on the target, but I didn't want to lose the situational awareness that a red dot allows in the under 50 yard distances. This is just a magnifier - there is no reticle, but there are windage and elevation adjustments in the event your riser on the red dot is not the same height as the base mount to get your focal point centered. I really like the ability quickly flip this up or out of the way on the fly. For me this was more cost effective than ditching the red dot I already had and switching to 1-6x, and more magnification than a 1-4x
THUMBS UP, very nice mount Quality Product for the price point. I really like the mount Optic is flip to side and optic is QD as well allowing the mount to stay connected and below the iron sights and red dot.
Good product. For the price, this can't be beaten. I just want to give honest feedback on the pros and cons. Magnifies great. To adjust the magnification, you have to rotate a knob, which is stiff. I like that you can adjust the angle of the optic so it lines up with the red-dot in front of it. Mine came from the factory with a sever angle. I was able to adjust it to where I needed it. The locking mechanism that keeps the optic held down has worked well so far, but feels like it is barely holding the optic from springing out of the way. I don't know if repeated use will wear it out, and make it so it no longer holds it down. I do feel that the materials used were good quality. Overall, I'd buy it again. I just want to be honest that this is a good product, but know that you may have to do some adjustments to line it up.
Magnifier Works as advertised. Good magnifier. Key word here is magnifier. It does not contain any type of reticle so do not expect one. I made this error and presumed it did. Not a problem as I will plan to keep it and in the future procure a red dot or similar product to pair the two. The flip operation is strong and solid.
