Eotech 4x Magnifier Replica

Post  hun on Thu Feb 05, 2009 1:33 am

Nanya and I did a comparison of the real Eotech 4X magnifier and the Clone at the last gun show. Optical clarity is similar except the clone is not nitrogen filled. Currently, this is acceptable because our lives don't depend on the magnifier potentially fogging up or anything else. The only drawback is the mount. Although ingeniously copied, some tweaking is required to zero it into your Eotech. I used a file and some sandpaper to allow the mount to sit firmly with the top rail. Then I applied a few small strips of electrical tape on the rear of the mount where it mates with the rail in order to raise the back end of the magnifier. I also had to apply a very thin amount of JB weld on the top end of the mount because it was cut wrong I guess by 1-2mm. This JB weld was applied to stop the magnifier from moving horizontally. Anyways, everything is perfect now. Pictures coming soon!

Also, if u or anyone else has a 3x magnifier, buy this mount. I may have skipped on the 4x if I saw this earlier... yeah right! I love my 4X!!!!

During ample lighting, the clone will perform at about 95% compared to the "real" one. During darker conditions the clone is about 1 fstop higher than the "real" one.

It is though much brighter than the 3x. It has two larger lenses. More light is coming through.

Pics/vid after the test.
