You Tube Mark Ripley demonstrating the new 4K wraith and its looks like its the same price as the HD model

Thats because it is the HD model , just upgraded with a better sensor.
It is nothing like the 4K max, which cost nearly twice as much.

Yes but it has 4k picture quality the 4k max has a couple of different things like sound

A 4K sensor doesnt always equate to 4K image quality, it makes NO difference to night time image for instance.
It just allows for less pixelisation during daytime zoom levels.

Exatly the day time quality is a lot better for the same price

Which is far less important, as its predominantly a night scope.
And an HD is £350 now.

Not calling them as a scope , they are a good solid build, but the Pard is a far better option in my opinion.

 No way had a pard 007 had pulsar had  an Archer got 3 wraiths but my goto foxing rifle is a 17 Hornet with a  pulsar xq50 i have had all these scopes so i know what is  good and not so good as for just night time shooting no way you need a good 4k quality

Hello, I keep thinking to change my old MK 1 Photon I use for ratting, I don't need video etc, just a decent plain night scope 🤔and not heavy

Only way you will get away with not heavy is the tele type on top of your scope

I have a Wraith and one of DaveG's tele type and both do the job.  Dave's is a very simple bit of kit and has laid a lot of foxes low. It does throw a bit of light back at you but the targets don't seem to notice.  The Wraith is fine just needs a bit of getting used to. I don't use any of the additional all singing dancing thingies on it. Chose a simple cross hair and added a bit better IR.  Suits my needs out to 150 no problem.   Big open fields you need something with a bit of reach where Dave's wins because you can pull stuff in  easy with a side wheel scope.  The Wraith is a touch more difficult and I only use it for 100-150yrd shots.

As I said on a previous post I have been thinking of buying a wraith as my first night scope I still use a torch(caveman’s know ) My question being I shoot a older  CZ 222 would I have to buy a scope rail to mount it if so any suggestions???

Yes, you will need a dovetail based rail with picatinny top for the wraith mount, this will raise it up a bit unfortunately, but a comb riser is cheap enough if needed.
ANT supplies for both.

OR... go 007 and no need for either.

Gerry i have same rifle in .222 personally I'd take Rewulf advice which is what i use on .17hmr .222 and 6.5x55 with no lose of zero. If you do go picatinny rail make sure you get one with the inbuilt recoil trust me Gerry i bought a Brittania one had nothing but trouble my local Rifle Smith also told me of several others having problems even though as you know the .222 is not a heavy recoiling rifle. All the best mate 👍

6x5x55 Thanks for the reply how much is a picatinny rail to buy and we’re sells them ?? I take it the rail is easy to fit ? I was looking at the wraith on YouTube some of the reviews were saying that it’s only certain rails the wraith will fit too 👍👍

The one I'd buy is from alanrhone which is a Contessa Picatinny rail ( 0 MOA ) for cz527 hope you are sitting down as they are £125 .  ( My Brittania heap of poop cost me £85+ )Honestly mate i can't help with the wraith fitting system. ( I'm sure there are many other members) Rewulf is a sound bloke with good knowledge of NV and Thermal but if i was going dedicated Night and Day scope/unit it would be a Pulsar c50 without a doubt but for me the Pard 007 is so versatile I've got some very clear videos of day shooting with all three calibre rifles i use. 👍
