Another but heavier option is to mount a cowitnessed 1-4x scope in front of the eotech? ;)

There are some threads on these in the optics forum. The general consensus is that they're not bad for the money, though eye relief can be tight.

Interesting thought.

You'd need a scout scope to do this, due to eye relief, and would probably need to mount the scope on the handguard as well. Most Eotechs don't leave enough room for a scope mount ahead of them on the receiver.

If you had a skinny enough scope, like a 15 or 20mm .22 scope, you could fit it over the Eotech battery cover.

This would magnify the target, but not the Eotech reticle, so your MOA references would all be off as well, depending on magnification. You'd also have 2 reticles in your FOV - the Eotech and the scope. If there was any mis-alignment in co-witness at all, your reticles wouldn't line up.

If you moved a little off-axis, you'd lose view through the scope, and since the scope would be blocking the Eotech, you'd lose that as well. A magnifier's not a lot different, though you can get flip mount that would let you get it out of the way, and nobody makes flip scope mounts currently, that I know of.

One benefit is you'd be able to use it as an occluded sight with the scope blocking it, and you can't do that with a magnifier/Eotech combo.

It'd be interesting to try, but it seems unlikely it'd be practical.

Check Primary Arms' magnifier on AR15.com. It's $79 and it's a great magnifier for the money. Glass is very clear.

Just buy it from a reputable dealer, like www.riflegear.com, for example, and then you won't have anything to worry about :D
