I'm looking for a cheap magnifier for my AR. I found the Mako 5x Magnifier for a good price. What are your thoughts and opinion?

Look at Primary Arms. They have a pretty good reputation.

After spending a ton of money on my rifle, I just didn't want to spend $700 on a
Eotech 4x. So I bought the cheap 3x from "Jeffu" and it works pretty good.

For sure. I currently own an Aimpoint Mirco H1. I had an Eotech 512, and an Acog TA31F. My brother has an Aimpoint 3x magnifier clone and it works just fine.

It works fine. Eye relief isn't very good, but none of the lower end magnifiers do. I had the Primary Arms 3x and it worked fine.

Sweet! The only time I plan on using it is when zeroing in my scopes.

Look at the VMX3 magnifier. It's the only one with decent eye relief. All the others are crap IME.

The Vortex VMX3 3x magnifier is a tad under 2" eye relief. I believe the Primary Arms Gen 3 3x is 1.5"

Once in a while the magnifier would hit my shooting glasses. LOL. But it was on a AR so no big deal on the recoil.
