6XMag-1™ Magnifier
User manual
The Aimpoint® 6XMag-1 module can be used in conjunction with all Aimpoint
sights for long-range aiming or observing. A variable (-3 to +3) dioptric setting
allows this magnifier to be adapted to the individual shooter’s eye. The
6XMag-1 can also be used as a handheld 6X monocular.
Aimpoint magnifiers utilize the red dot in Aimpoint sights as the aiming reticle,
eliminating the need for re-zeroing when shifting between non-magnified and
magnified aiming.
The 6XMag-1 is encased in a shock absorbing protective rubber cover that
also creates an ideal ergonomic grip. Internal optical adjustments make the
aligning of the magnifier and sight quick and easy.
For quick attachment/detach, we recommend the use of the Aimpoint
FlipMount or the Aimpoint TwistMount.

WARNING: Ensure the weapon is not loaded and the safety selector is in the
”safe” position before attempting to install, remove or perform maintenance
on the 6XMag-1 - other than attaching/detaching it under normal use.
2.1 Installing the Aimpoint® 6XMag-1 on a weapon
The mounting surface (3) of the 6XMag-1 allow for mounting to any 30 mm
diameter ring mount when the rubber cover is cut away, see Fig. 2.

3. Mounting surface
For quick attachment/detach, we recommend the Aimpoint FlipMount or the
Aimpoint TwistMount as shown in Fig. 3.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when installing the 6XMag-1.

Aimpoint® TwistMount
The height of the mount is correct when the optical axis of the 6XMag-1 and
the Aimpoint sight coincide. Select a suitable position for the 6XMag-1 on the
weapon base so the eye relief is correct and feels comfortable.
Assemble the 6XMag-1 to the chosen mount and install it on the weapon.
The 6XMag-1 shall be mounted with the Aimpoint logo on top.
Carefully tighten the mount to the weapon base and retighten after a few
NOTE: Any adjustments (see 2.2) of the 6XMag-1 does not affect the point
of impact.

2.2 Centering
The 6XMag-1 does not need to be zeroed. However, an Aimpoint sight used
together with the 6XMag-1 must be zeroed so the red dot of the sight creates
the correct point of impact.
The 6XMag-1 has two screws (1) that allow the user to center the red dot
of the Aimpoint sight when viewed through the 6XMag-1. Centering the dot
inside the 6XMag-1 is not necessary, but creates a more natural feel.
CAUTION: Do not continue to adjust the screws if you encounter resistance.

2.3 Diopter setting
Additionally, on the 6XMag-1 it is possible to adjust the diopter setting by
rotating the diopter ring (2) as shown in Fig. 6.

Use in extreme heat or cold, salt air, sea spray, water, mud and snow, dust
and sand storms or high altitudes does not require any special procedures.
To reach maximum protection level for all weather conditions, wax is added
into the rubber mixture. The wax is slowly migrating to the surface of the part.
The wax is used up completely during frequent use and is not noticed by the
user. For long time storage, the wax is not used up as frequently and is seen
as a grey film on the surface. Wipe with a damp cloth to restore to its original
CAUTION: Never clean the lenses with the fingers. Use a lens paper/cloth.
If no lens paper/cloth is available, simply blow away the dirt or fog up the
lenses and dry them with a clean and soft piece of cloth.
