LUCID Dream: World’s First Variable Red Dot Sight Magnifier

Press release:

“Now available to shooting enthusiasts, law enforcement personnel and other armed professionals, the LUCID variable (2X – 5X) red dot magnifier will allow for the flexibility to better adapt to the shooting situation and provide additional flexibility and capability, making the shooter much more effective when taking the longer shots, yet still equipped for CQB in the same set up . . .

“This magnifier offers outstanding clarity, brightness and contrast all in a quality design and durable construction that has come to be expected from LUCID products. When combined with a swing-off or FTS mount and LUCID’s hallmark HD7 red dot sight, it becomes an even more powerful tool, giving shooters the most robust set of features, benefits and operator selectable options of any modern red dot set up.”

Some of the key features of the LUCID 2x-5x variable magnifier include a 30mm mounting tube, Waterproof, Fog Proof and Shock proof (.308) construction, exceptional ruggedness, light weight (7.5oz.), a comfortable and forgiving eye relief and premium optics providing a smooth optical performance over the entire magnification range. The extremely durable armored aluminum body allows for this variable-power magnifier to a nice addition to the LUCID line.

Fully Multi-coated lenses coupled with a light absorbing interior finish suppress glare and provide an extraordinarily crisp and bright optical image. LUCID’s efficient use of space and quality optics in developing the magnification range deliver the flexibility that has been greatly needed in the market for some time.

Even at the highest magnification (5x), the this new variable red dot magnifier offers an expansive field of view, allowing for easy tracking and locating of targets. This coupled with the a generous, eye relief make the LUCID’s variable red dot magnifier comfortable and easy to use.

Measuring (4.75) inches in length, the variable red dot magnifier mounts behind any red dot sight with a industry common 30mm mount.”

    Dear Lucid: You have brought tears of joy to my old eyes. Here’s looking at you, kid.

    Cool! With that form factor and that much eye relief, it looks like it might be the only magnifier to work well on Ultimak AK gas tube rail setups. Now if only Primary Arms would sell a $65 clone I could theoretically afford…

    I might have finally found some glass that might work for me. I don’t know if it is the reason why I’ve always had trouble with optics, but a Dr. told me I have round eye lenses, not oval like they’re supposed to be. I have tremendous night vision and peripheral vision, but I’ve always had a relief problem with scopes. Still, it’s fun freaking out my girl how I can read in the dark.

      CUJO, you’re not a dog — you’re a cat! Or at least your eyes are.

          Ah! I got it backwards-it’s my eyes that have “football shaped lenses” according to the doc. Getting old’s a bitch! Any how, thanks for the word-I’ll look into this device. I found one retailer who has the fixed 1X version. Do you know who carries the whole line, kind sir?
