One thing for mounting the 3x, I'll have to move the sight really far forward for the flip to side mount for the magnifier to fit - actually far enough forward that it'll be over the delta ring a bit. It's possible that a cantilevered mount (like this one http://www.amazon.com/ProMag-PM004A-.../dp/B003BAHT28
) would be a better choice here. I should get both the 3x and the mount delivered tomorrow, so I'll follow up with thoughts on it then. I may end up getting a scope rail extension.
The learning curve here is a bit pricy, but damn it's fun.
Okay, I ordered the site for $199. I emailed the owner/founder of Lucid (Jason) with questions about the variable magnifier and he answered within an hour, which is cool:
Thank you for the interest in LUCID.
(1) We estimate that the 2x-5x variable magnifier will be available mid May.
(2) Due to the large variety in end user's equipment set up and requirements a mount for the magnifier will be a separate item. We will carry and recommend the ADM Swing off mount for use with the HD7.
(3) There are a wide variety of mounts on the market that will work quite nicely.
The mount industry is fairly complex with patents and locked up intellectual property. So much so that LUCID will simply make the optics and let the folks that already own the mounts space make the mounts.
Thank You & Best Regards,
Primary & Founder
