    What say you of this unique setup?

    Having a discussion with a buddy, he wants to mount dual optics on a rifle, as follows:

    Simple red dot on top, in main position on the upper, and a 5x magnified Vortex on the side, at a 45 degree angle.

    I seek opinions on this setup from the cognoscenti in this regard.

    I highly doubt anyone here is going to consider this worth trying.

    Pretty much backwards as to how I would do it...if I did it....are you sure he didn't see this on Call of Duty?

    I'm not even sure how you mount a scope like that and accurately zero it though, so what do I know.

    Why not just get a 5x Eotech magnifier?

    I will be experimenting with it in a few weeks. Just to try it as an experiment. Itís a why not, type exercise. I have a theory and might as well test it. If it doesnít work all I did was waste some ammo.

    I assume that they've seen this video:


    I personally have reservations, as my line of thinking is that you want to be as stable as possible when using magnification, which an offset magnified optic does not provide. That being said, I could see niche applications where the offset magnification is useful, though they would tend toward gaming rather than duty scenarios. That being said, since I never have used a rifle in a duty/warfighting situation, maybe I don't know what I don't know.

    I donít like offset optics, they just get in the way IMO, especially of peripheral vision.

    They suck to use too. But I suppose if you commit to anything lacking, you can make it work for you.

    Why not use a flip to side magnifier? Have they gone out of style?
