Looking to get a night vision scope for ratting, do not one of the screen type versions, What is the cost of a low end IR scope. 30 yard range ?

Hello, the only one I would suggest is a used Photon XT, for what air rifle ?

Thanks all for the replies. It's to fit on my HW100 .177.  Will a Photon focus down to 30 yds ?

Yes, many peeps use them for ratting on air rifles, you may need to shim a mount as you can run out of adjustment when zeroing, have a google on photon xt on HW100.

I have the yukon Photon Rt, really good night vision, can't really comment on the xt but I know I have shot rats at 10yards and the picture is fine. And that's 6x mag. Well worth the money. 

I struggled with the adjustment when I was zeroing but luckily the fella I bought mine off had the adjustable mounts which made things alot easier 👍

Would anybody recommend a Yukon Photon RT 6x50  for ratting/rabbits?

I'm using one for rats at the minute, works well. If it was purely  for ratting one of the lower mag versions  would give you a better field of view, but as general purpose nv, which will be used on my .22lr and .222, x6 mag does the job.

Hello, I use a MK 1 Photon and a XT photon for rats and rabbits, I also use a Pard 007, it's what one finds suitable for their own personal use,

Hello, there's a new easy adjustable mount out now or though expensive it saves having to shim mounts, a lot depends on rifle, rails, and scope mounts,

Forget about photons but if for ratting and rabbits you need pard 007 , if only for ratting then 12 mm pard 007 and that will do rabbits at airgun ranges 

What would the maximum range be for rabbits?

100 -150 yards with the built in IR or 300 -400 yards with external IR .

The older models like mine will see 300 yards easy with built in IR , depending on your scope
