Just make sure you tighten the QD mount to the flip to side mount so that way it sits nice and secure. If you're not sure what I'm talking about let me know and I'll post up some pictures of what I did when I get home tonight.
Another thing to note as well is I wouldn't recommend zeroing it with the magnifier up, with mine it has a bit of play to the left and right so I would have to sometimes just tweak it a bit so the red dot visually looks centred. Then again, I'm not intending to use my magnifier to take precise shots, its more or less to track and ID targets at a bit of a longer range. A rail mounted spotting scope more or less...
Hope that helps!
Would it be possible if you could post some pictures for me to reference? How did you take the metal riser piece out? I've taken out the really long screw but that piece seems to stay fixed. I think your solution is the best one as it seems that my magnifier is angled way to high at the front.
