Meprolight MX3 3X magnifiers provide near-instant magnification.

The modern sporting rifle, or AR-15 and similarly styled rifles, continue to proliferate. With that comes a need for a host of specialized optics to meet a wide array of demands. To meet that ever-growing need, Meprolight MX3 3X magnifiers deliver near-instant magnification to traditional red dot and reflex optics.

And that’s the thing about the AR, it’s used for so many purposes. From duty to defense, competition to home defense, no one optic can typically meet every need. So when running a 1X optic, shooters can add greater versatility to their setup.

Meprolight MX3-T and MX3-F offer two different 3X solutions for magnification. Each attaches to the Picatinny rail directly behind a red dot optic. The MX3-T utilizes an integrated pullback adaptor, allowing it to ride to the side when out of use. Meanwhile, the MX3-F comes with a push-button mechanism.

Both models configure to either the right or left side when not in use. Neither will interfere with the weapon’s operating system, according to Meprolight. Shooters simply flip the magnifier up into position to engage targets at longer distances.

The magnifiers adjust for both elevation and windage, delivering a precise FOV line of sight alignment. Each model also comes waterproof as well.
