Aimpoint 3X-P Magnifier: Upgrading the Battle-Tested Optic

0 23

The next generation magnifier, from the company that arguably made it the most ubiquitous in military use, is here. The Aimpoint 3X-P Magnifier brings a new professional-grade, 3X magnifier built to work in tandem with Aimpoint red dot sights.

Aimpoint 3X-P Magnifier Details

“This magnifier increases the capabilities for many users of Aimpoint sights,” said Erik Jeppsson, Director Marketing & Sales Worldwide for Aimpoint. “We now offer a magnifier that fits the needs of demanding professionals, while maintaining a budget-friendly price point.” 

The 3X-P features a variable dioptric setting (-2 to +2), allowing magnifier adjustment to the individual shooter’s eye. An ergonomic design with a protective rubber cover provides a sure grip when used as a handheld device. Offered at a competitive price, the 3X-P comprises an updated magnifier for quickly increasing magnification quickly to get on target.

Whether paired with a red to or used as a handheld monocular, the 3X-P maintains several Aimpoint staples. It includes a crisp sight picture and generous field of view. Paired with a red dot in Aimpoint sights eliminates the need to re-zero. It also prevents any shifting between non-magnified and magnified aiming. The 3X-P works with the quick-detach TwistMount or FlipMount from Aimpoint. With either solution, the 3X unit quickly deploys into the fight.

The 3X-P retails for $422. For more info, visit

Editor’s Take:

Long before variable-power optics with good magnification and a true 1X low-end were widely available, the Aimpoint 3X magnifier ruled the battlefield. As such, it’s proven its capabilities far more than nearly any optic out there. And it continues to be an extremely versatile tool today for duty, defense or even hunting/ranch, etc. With a twist- or flip-style mount, it gets you on target at extended range extremely fast. Better still, they’re almost always bombproof and run when you need it. We expect nothing less with the new 3X-P.
