What Gen NV are you wanting? There are Magnified NV optics out there for around $400. That would leave you w/ $600 for a RDS. Just switch back and forth. You're wanting it for night hunts. You're not humping all day and night and need both options, correct?

I just put a Leatherwood/Hi-Lux CMR 1-4x24 on my 300 BLK SBR, it has an illuminated reticle with a NV setting.

Correct. I just want a quick detach NV or one with both options so I can toss it on at dusk for hunts and remove it for target shooting and what ever other need I'd use it for in the day time. And nothing super fancy. I'm new to the NV side of sights and have no idea what I'm looking for

I'd go to opticsplanet and look at different NV scopes then google the model to check prices. For day hunts I'd get a separate optic of your choosing. As far as I know when you start getting into devices that'll mount in front of or behind a day time optic to make it a NV optic you're looking at spending a ton of money.

What you are wanting is a PS-22 NV. It mounts either in front of your scope or can be attatched to the scope with adapters.It enables any type of scope to be complete NV,and doesn't change anything on your optics.
Unless you buy Gen 3 or better,they are only good for around 75yds. A Gen 3 or better unit will give you 100-150yds,but they are around $4000.00

Yeah that's a little out of my price range. I was looking at the ATN Aries MK390 though

We touched on this earlier but in his OP it was mentioned that he wanted to stay under $1k.

Guys, i believe i found in OP a unit similar to ATN Aries MK390 Armasight Orion. In fact, they don't differ too much except the possible magnification. I don't own either of these but it seems like reviews are positive.
