Readers - I have the Eotech 512 with the LaRue Po-Boy setup. It works great, but at 2.5x, the LaRue rig is just not strong enough for good sighting for me beyond 50 yds.

I received the off-market 5x magnifier from Cheaper-Than-Dirt today, but the optics are crap and it goes back on Monday.

So, here's the dumb question: can a variable-power scope be mounted WITH the Eotech left in place? The XCR's fine design allows plenty of top rail space but I do not know if a >1x scope can be used with an Eotech. Admitedly, the result would be Frankenstein-ish, but would it have optical functionality?

I am not sure it would work like a normal magnifier would. If all you want is more magnification just use a scope with a illuminated red dot. There are plenty out there. I never tried it but I just don't know it a 3x9 scope mounted in behind (prior to) an eotech would work.

I may be wrong, I have been before.
