IR advice!!

Postby MUSKY » 13 Sep 2017, 14:35

Hi
Can someone on here please tell me of a good IR for my pulsar n970 lrf.
I've got an Xsearcher and a ludicrous lumens sun ranger. Both go way further than I would shoot but neither fill the scope properly even when there on there max flood adjustment.
So i'm looking for something with a long range but something that will fill the scope when its on its lowest mag.
Thanks for any opinions!

I'm guessing you fell for the 'need most range' train of thought (tighter beams are more contrated for deeper penetration) when a smaller torch with a wider field of view would have suited you better.

What ranges are you shooting and needing to see backdrop to? Are you shooting rimfire or air ranges where a wider beam is needed to fill the viewer screen?

Smaller aspheric lens torches have wider focused beams than large torch heads when aspheric lenses are used, and the T series or EVO series torches zoom quite wide.

Hi Musky,

This should be just the ticket:

Beam angles suited to your scope and more power and better build than the usual fodder. 8-)


Cheers

Hi somebloke
I have the scope fitted to my 223 for foxing.
Most of the foxes I shoot are around the 100y mark but I have been known to take them out at 200y.
The sun ranger gives me a good clear picture out to well over 300y but just dosnt fill the scope when on low mag, which is what I like to shoot it on.
Cheers

Hi Clive
What sort of range is the IR you recommended going to give me?
Cheers

Hi MUSKY,

I've not tried the exact combination but on a Photon it will give you a decent image at 250-300 yards.


Cheers
