Ok so I’ve got the EOtech EXPS2 holo on my AR and shopping 3x magnifiers

The G33 is so goddamn expensive at $520, is it really worth the extra $220 over something like a Vortex micro at $299?

My rifle will get limited use tbh. Don’t need it to be super rugged

The Vortex 3x is really good for its price but I'm not sure it'll work with the Unity mount if you want it to fold down. I have a few of them and they do their job. I also have the 5x Eotech magnifier and the glass quality is better, especially near the edges and off dead center.

So the holo is on unity riser mount, you’re saying I can’t put the Vortex on the same type of mount and have it flip out?

be easier to just get a riser that's long enough to accommodate both if that's the route you want to take

Maybe their new tall flip to center? But I'd have to go back and see what you already have and if it would line up


It gives a 2.25" optical centerline

No, the flip to center Omni mount. I wouldn't run the magnifier on this.

I’m trying to figure out if I have to order the G33 without it’s mount or whether it’s removable. I’d like to assume it’s removable and I can buy the mount version and just remove it to mount to the unity ftc but I haven’t seen a good pic online and anything talking about removing its mount

EDIT: I found the manual and it says the mount isn’t even attached shipped so I’m good
