Decided on an Eotech

Originally I thought I was going with a 1-4x scope, but a change of plan. I want a true 1x optic. Maybe a scope down the road?

Should I pay $50 extra and get a Primary Arms 3x mag...or not worth it?

I've no experience on primary arms, but I do recommend the Eotech's. I have one on my AR and it works well. Adding magnification is up to you depending on if funds are available.

I believe the Primary Arms stuff is liked by folks who have them, even though they are very budget oriented. I have an Aimpoint magnifier and it is a neat little addition that helps extend the utility of the rifle.

For $50, I might just go ahead and do it as long as it's on a mount that will let you quickly swing it aside or dismount/remount.

I might hold out for a bit and get a G23. It does have a QD mount.

i LOVE the eotech. definitely not an end all optic, but for cqb (or stalking groundhogs ) it's unbeatable IMO
Favorite range gun for the money - CZ 75B or STI Spartan V 9mm
Go-to carry setup - Walther PPS or PPQ in FIST kydex holster 1AK
Favorite semi-auto design - HK P7

My EO Tech has a flip to side magnifier set up behind it. It is a most excellent arrangement. Under 100 yards or so I keep it off to the side. This is the normal position. Beyond that I use the magnifier. It has performed flawlessly for many years.

You can purchase these separately. If you want a red dot and are thinking you might want a magnifier later EOT is probably the best way to go.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
