Default Magnifiers

I would like to add a magnifier on my DPMS which has a Aimpoint. I can find very little information. Any suggestions?

I would take a look at the L-3 EOTech X3 Magnifier. High quality and a nice unit!

Thanks for the responses. I look forward to hearing now hour primary arms works. The ones I look at are mounted in front of my Aimpoint. I was hoping to find one which pointed towards the front sight which could flip into place for long range shooting and out to the side for CQB

Id think a FTS mount would be best. If not in use just flip it to the side. Itll still be there if needed.

Does the magnifier go in front or to the rear of the Aimpoint?
