How EOTECH Magnifiers Expand the Capability of a 1X Optic

Wanna up your shooting game in the same style and success of US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM)? Then step right up to EOTECH’s latest introductions—EOTECH Magnifier G43 and G45.

EOTECH Magnifier G43 and G45

EOTECH Magnifiers enhance any EOTECH Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) by enlarging the target’s image when needed. EOTECH’s G43 and G45 magnifiers pair perfectly with any EOTECH HWS, transforming them into close to medium-range weapon sight systems. The G43 and G45 are now available in Flat Dark Earth color, to complement the FDE-colored optics and firearms widely used.

How EOTECH Magnifiers Work

The magnifiers include a Switch-to-Side magnifier mount with a locking, adjustable, quick detach lever. When mounted, the magnifier snaps into place behind the HWS when needed and out of the way when not required. Its ambidextrous design switches either to the right or left to accommodate the shooter’s preference. Both magnifiers feature tool-free vertical and horizontal adjustments for simple reticle centering and an adjustable diopter quickly focuses the magnifier to suit the user’s eyes.

“The biggest advantage the magnifiers offer with a Holographic Weapon Sight is that the dot size doesn’t change when viewed with magnification,” said Mark Miller, Director of Product Management for EOTECH. “The target enlarges, but the dot remains 1MOA providing greater accuracy. This is different from red dots because their dots will grow in size at the same rate as the target, so no additional precision is gained.”

G43 VS. G45 Magnification Specifications

EOTECH Magnifier G43 and G45

Both the G43 and G45 magnifiers have similar specifications; the biggest difference is their magnification. The G43 is a 3X magnifier, while the G45 is a 5X. The G45’s additional 2X magnification allows precise aiming at greater distances. The G43, at 3X, offers a slightly wider field-of-view than the G45 for better situational awareness at mid-range distances. Choosing the best magnifier comes down to the user’s preference.

EOTECH designs and builds rugged, reliable, and innovative products for rigorous field use. The G43 and G45 inherit the battle-proven features of the EOTECH G33 magnifier. The G43 Magnifier is one of the most compact, lightweight magnifiers today. These magnifiers are impervious to the elements and work in a wide range of temperatures. Both are well-suited to any operational environment, from the jungles and deserts to the mountains and arctic.

EOTECH’s Prestige Warranty backs both the G43 and G45, and EOTECH guarantees every product to be free from manufacturing defects in material and workmanship under normal use for ten (10) years from the manufacturer’s date or customer’s proof of purchase.
