So I got one in today..

Does not come with the AA batteries (x2) or the CR2032.

Its SightMark Photon 5x42 Digital NightVision Rifle Scope #SM18003.. Normal pricing so far is like $599..

The nice part with a digital scope is you can use it during the day or at night.. :)

They recommend (for obvious reasons) HIGH 30mm diameter rings.. (I am waiting on mine)..

Image

The digital part has jacks for external battery pack to power the unit.. and a RCA video out jack to record or view what you see..

The IR on the 5x42 is listed as a 780nm laser.. There 3x42 model says IR LED is 805nm..

Image

OAL is 13 1/2"

Image

Ring distance is only 4 1/2"

Image

The adjustments is 1/4 MOA.. and are finger adj. turrets under the caps..

The Illuminated DOT in the middle of the black cross hair has a total of 11 settings..

Image

Day Time picture with my crappy phone..

Image

Some guy over in the UK did a video review at night.. this is screenshot from his review at night..

Image

I will be checking this tonight and will report back with my findings..

Well that looks very interesting. I am looking forward to your opinion of it for night shooting.

Well. I shot 120 rounds thru my AR yesterday to sight in and last night.

Terrible cell pic with the built-in IR on..

Image

Day shots with the D @ 100 yards or so.. 3 shots at night on this target..

Image

Circled is Day.. the other holes are night shooting last night.. 4 night shots.. (approx 3 1/2" goup..)

Image

Metal hanging setup my buddy made me yesterday.. was fun..

Image

I think this for the price point is WAY better than a Gen 1.. I can see out to 200 yards and engage out to 160-170 at 16x32 with 6-8" targets..

Shooting again later to try and sight in better..

After shooting ALOT (like 180 rounds).. and getting my U/D and R/L backwards for abit..

I zero'd from a sandbag and prone at 100 yards and was only about 1 1/2" high..

I shot last night @ 9pm (or so) with no moon at all from a 'bench' with no bag and 140 yards..

Image

Image

I went too far to the RIGHT I think and need to come back UP some clicks.. (its a 1/4 moa adjustment)..

Overall VERY happy with the optic for the $money$..

Throws good IR light with built-in IR out to about 175 yards..

I think zombies at 200 yards would still be double DOA.. :lol:

I also shot a friends FAL, 30-06 ATR 100 rifle (dead nuts on) and some other stuffs.. was a great day..
