I have an EoTech 552 replica, the important thing about it though is that it has the thumb screw type mount, not the lever QD mount. The 3x magnifier works perfectly with the eotech, even though the magnifier sits a good quarter of an inch below the glass of the 552, you can adjust the lenses on the magnifier to put the crosshairs nearly in the center, thus working perfectly. I love this magnifier, it took all of 5 minutes to unpackage and set up on my gun. The only thing that surprised me about it was the flip to side or twist off feature. I have had the privilege to handle an AR-15 with a real EoTech and a real magnifier, when you push the lever on the mount of the real magnifier, the magnifier simply moves laterally (to the right) and out of the line of site. On this magnifier, when you push the tab, it releases the magnifier to swing counterclockwise until it can be pulled upward and off of the mount. THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT THIS MAGNIFIER CANNOT JUST BE MOVED TO THE SIDE YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT ALL THE WAY OFF. However I think that the overall quality of the device accounts for this, it is simply perfect for EoTechs and if you have the dough, you MUST get one.
-Works with my EoTech 552 replica
-Can adjust lenses in magnifier to account for the height difference
-Very easy to set up on the gun
-The tab on the mount releases the ENTIRE magnifier, and comes all the way off the gun
