Meopta has announced a new 3x magnifier for red dot sights called the MeoMag. While it is designed to be used in combination with a red dot optic, you can also use it as a monocular.
Would the MeoMag work as a magnifier for the Sig Romeo 5 red dot sight?
MeoMag 3x Magnifier for Red Dot Sights Announced by Meopta
While the MeoMag certainly is a perfect match for Meopta’s line of red dot sights, it also works with pretty much any other red dot on the market. It is an ideal companion for Meopta’s MeoRed T, the T-mini, MeoSight III, and others.
The magnifier is designed to double as a monocular (Monoculars vs Binoculars). It fits comfortably into your palm due to its ergonomic shape. When used with a red dot sight, it can easily attach and be removed with the quick-release mount (Guide to Choosing the Best Types of Rifle Scope Mounts).
Alternatively, the MeoMag can be mounted with an optional hinge mount. You can then flip the magnifier to the right or left to get it out of the line of sight!
The Meopta MeoBright features multiple coatings. These eliminate or reduce glare and reflections.
Meopta calls their film combination MeoDrop. The coatings ensure the highest level of visual clarity, no matter the environmental conditions. The MeoDrop films repel rain and snow as well as oils from skin and dirt to provide a clear image under all circumstances.
The Meopta MeoMag 3x has outstanding optical capabilities. Meopta designed and built it to be water- and fog-proof as well as shockproof.
This way, you can use it even in the most demanding situations! The magnifier is also fitted with Fast-Opening Lens Covers (FOLC).
The suggested retail price is set to $999.99 by Meopta. The street price is expected to be lower than that.
The MeoMag offers the following technical specifications
- Magnification Level of 3x
- Waterproof down to 2 meters for 2 hours
- A dioptric correction between -4 and +3
- An integral transmission at the twilight of 83% and of 86% in daylight
- The exit pupil diameter is 6.5 mm
- The field of view is 7 degrees

The Meopta MeoMag is a great magnifier. It doubles as a monocular, which makes it an even better buy. The pricing is certainly on the high side, and you can get less expensive magnifiers for your red dot sight (Find the Best Red Dot Magnifier – Reviews and Buying Advice) that are also of the highest quality!
