Looking for an add on for rimfire and center fire

Post by muntjackdjb » 08 Dec 2017, 22:24

Are you saying that's what the OP should buy or that you have one for sale ?

Hi Dan.
Advise.
You will have found out with the photon extreme that finding quarry in the first place is hard due to the narrow field of view, here a "good" n/v add on system will beat it as you can locate the quarry on say 3/4 mag, then once on it mag up to 12 or more with still as good as or better picture than the photon.

If you can get on with t/v type screen then the EVO n/v add on that "some bloke" on here sells will give you the range of the Wardy n/v, for a lot less money.

Ive been buying and using several night vision's over the last 10 years and i have spent 1,000's of pounds on them, best n/v add on's at the moment are the "Wardy"700/800, i have the 700, ive used a 800L, and to my eye's its no better than my 700.

My advise, buy either a good second hand 700 (these's go for around £500) or a second hand or new 800.

How deep are your pockets - and have you always 'looked through' a near eye device or seen a heads up monitor device like the one in my photo below or the nightsight - or some of the crude rubber pipe one's from the bottom of the barrel on ebay that have the monitor too close to focus on properly?

I don't like the big screen type. So wanted an in line type.

That about limits your choice of an add on to a used NT300 (one on the bay) or a WDV.

My little experience of tubed add on required a longer more flexibile neck than I have - and eyes further away from my nose might have been helpful too. :D

Forget tubed unless you can afford a front add-on (PVS27), otherwise it's a WDV 700 or 800
