Low powered scope + night vision
I'm looking to take off my 3-9x40 scope off my AR and put on either a 1-4x24, a 4x32 or a red dot scope plus a night vision sight for hog hunts at night and coyote hunting. Any recommendations on both and best combos?

EOTECH has a NV setting on alot of their red dots

ShagNasty1001 01-10-2012 01:28 AM

How much are those running?

1stMarine 01-10-2012 01:32 AM

Anywhere from $250 (no nv) to upwards of $500

Never Forget.

Is that without NV? I can get an EOtech for about 330 brand new from my job so I'd really just want to know about the NV part if I went that route. Do they have them with a magnifier and decent eye relief? I had a sight mark magnifier and hated it

No I'm just trying to say that generally the cheaper models don't have NV. They do come with the magnifiers as a package deal but only when specified. Eye relief on the magnifiers is very good and they are fully compatible with the NV on the holo.

Never Forget.

Why not just get a NV magnified optic?

1stMarine 01-10-2012 02:39 AM

Good point it'd be a lot cheaper, that is unless you want the capability to switch magnified or not.... Anyway, why not just use IR? Some of the new gen stuff is plain amazing.

Never Forget.

Please note that even tho these sights have night vision settings, these setting only make them compatible with nightvision. You will need a seperate nightvision unit.

I'm looking to use it as a day/night optic and those that I have found so far are just a little out of my price range at the moment. I'm looking more towards a grand tops as my limit
