Night Vision scopes.

Recommended Posts

Pigeon watch members!

I've been having a crisis of recent with night vision scopes. Third world problem i know but i just don't seem to be getting anywhere.

Ive tried the Pard NV008 and the ATN 2 HD

Both costing around £600, i expected to see my targets with ease. The Pard had a technical fault so i had to return that, it was an issue with the reticle which was apparently a common issue. I used the scope as a spotter for one night and it was ok but wasn't blown away with it. I was offered the ATN as a replacement. ive had two nights out with it now and im dissapointed to say the least. Battery life is abysmal and the performance is  worse than the PARD by a long way. 

Should i give up and just go back to lamping or is there any other products anyone would recommend? Vermin control is part of my job so efficiency is key. 

Shooting a .17 HMR and a .243 depending on target, stalking or out of the car is my normal situation, mostly solo shooting. 

Thanks in advance.

Hi i used a photon 4.5 x 42 xt  i know a lot of people say they cant get use to them etc i had no problem with it its black and white veiwing this is what most people see as a problem as you dont see the colour of the target as you would thru a normal scope no matter witch one you use spend time looking thru it at night not on a rifle looking at your intended targets you will find you will get use to it and find your targets quicker  hope this helps

Ward addon has done me proud for years.   Had it upgraded to a 700.   Fits on my three rifles.   Simples.   Need a scope with parallax adjustment.

Buy a Drone pro, although the battery life is pretty awful as well unless you have an add on battery pack
