    Just bought new optics for my first build. The xps2-0 n PSA 3x magnifier. Still haven't been able to go to the range :( but next week will have the range report. Can't wait any longer

    Any advise on distance from mounting. And so forth would be appreciated. Thx

    Think your magnifier is a bit far forward.

    Eye relief on those suckers is pretty terrible. Can you sight through it standing freehand? Might want to sort that out before heading to the range.

    Also try zeroing your sights by taking off your upper and sighting through the barrel before getting through the range. Will have you a bit on ammo and get you on paper first shot.

    I got my EXPS2-0 with the 3x LER zoom from Primary Arms as well...loving it!

    It looks like you go the mount for your zoom that flips tot he side though? How is that working out? They were sold out when I got my optics, but REALLY want that flip tot he side mount....

    edit to add: If you have the LER (long eye relief) then you have ti mounted about where I have mine, and it's in a perfect position :D

    what is that directly under the EO reticle? it looks kinda like your front BUS with possibly a tritium dot in the center, but idk.......kinda like a Star Wars Tie Bomber. :D

    if so, then line your EO reticle up left and right with it.....as for up and down, well, how close is your BUS?

    Finally went to the range. Indoor tho. So only bout 30/35 yrds. :( Just went to zero in the eotech. No magnifier today. The laser bore was ok still had to adjust a few clicks. But after that. It went straight down the middle. Only 20 rounds.after I zeroed in. Just a short lil visit :(

    Loving this eotech. Can't wait to put a couple hundred rounds down range when I get a chance.

    Especially with a magnifier, you should have gone the extra quarter-mile and gotten the EXPS2-0, which has the side buttons instead of the rear buttons.

    The "Tie Fighter" is the front sight post, I believe. It does look a little funny, though.

    I have the EXPS2-2. With the 3X magnifier. My wife has the same set up. I really like it and have been to a couple of carbine classes with them. My wife stated that it has been the best money spent. Side on and off buttons are the bomb.

    Top dot is dead on out to 200 yards. Bottom dot is right on at 400 yards. My wife shot her AR at the 400 yard target and hit it right off the bat.

    One question tho. If I take the eotech off for safer storage for the time being. Would I have to zero everything back in

    No should be fine as long as it goes back on the same spot on your rail.

    Some good news. Primary arms is exchanging my magnifier for the ler 3x mag. Or the 6x mag. Just have to pay shipping.

    What's better the ler 3x. Or should I go with Tge six mag.
