    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

    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?

    As well as a flip to side mount for the magnifier you can get a twist lock base. It allows you to install/remove the magnifier by twisting locking it in place on the picatinny rail. And yes, the magnifier installs behind the scope,

    The magnifier goes in front of your red dot. As in closest to your eye. See picture. I personally don't trust any of the cheaper magnifiers. The Aimpoint and EOtech 3x magnifiers are def a little more expensive, but you're getting what you pay for. Check the LaRue website. They sell the optic/mount combos.
