Default Red dot magnifier more then 3x magnification?

Been looking around the web a bit and I dont seem to find any red dot magnifiers more then 3x magnification. Does anyone make something in the 4x-6x range?

primaryarms has a 5x if I remember right. They're not going to be common since with all of the bulk you're adding, might as well just get an acog at that point.

Just my 2 cents. I have the 3x with Aimpoint t1 and 3x on with Eotech xps3. Works well, dots are crisp aa is the target. I also have a cheaper 7x. The issue with the 7x I have is it seems the dots on both the Aimpoint are really blurry. The 7x does have a focus ring but I think it is just two much for this type of system.

I previously had the variable and liked it too... but didn't really have a need (and it was a little bulky)... now I just use fixed 3x... using Burris AR Tripler but the eye relief sux.

I just ordered Lucid's 3x as well as Primary Arms 3x - they both have long eye relief (about 3"), I'm looking forward to comparing the two.

That was something I really liked about the Lucid 2-5x, the eye relief was very good.

so is it normal for magnifiers with 6x zoom to make the red dot blurry? i have a new PA micro red dot with there 6x magnifier and the dot is a little blurry when looking thru the magnifier. i have been using scopes before this set up so its new to me.

Yeah, the eye relief rocks and it is a little bulky, but my BUIS is still able (Matech) to sit underneath it.

It's been my experience and others as well that the AP dot, under magnification, looks pretty blurry. The EOTech looks clear to me.
