SIGHTMARK SM16015  NIGHT RAIDER 2.5x50 NV SCOPE | NightVision4Less SIGHTMARK SM16015 NIGHT RAIDER 2.5x50 NV SCOPE

The Sightmark 2.5 x 50mm Night Raider night vision riflescope is a universal night optic designed for night hunting and observation.

Adding to its superior functionality, the Night Raider boasts a stabilized power supply that resists recoil and ensures an uninterrupted power supply while shooting. Also included is a durable protective flip-up objective lens cover, remote control, and a photo/video adapter. With all these features, included accessories and a Limited Lifetime Warranty, the Night Raider is a necessity for any hunting or shooting enthusiast's arsenal.

Pulsar Sentinel GS 3x60 NV Scope Pulsar Sentinel GS 3x60 NV Scope

The Pulsar Sentinel GS 3x60 night vision rifle scope features a red and green reticle option with variable brightness adjustment. A built-in IR illuminator with a focusable beam allows the Sentinel to achieve maximum brightness when varmint hunting or conducting surveillance. Its lightweight, titanium alloy body makes the unit extremely durable. Titanium alloy is strong, lightweight and has improved resistance to corrosion and is stronger than most aluminum-based scopes.

The most notable feature on the Pulsar Sentinel is the CF-Super tube, which gives edge-to-edge clarity compared to Gen 1. This is achieved by a spherical shaped photocathode on the image intensifier tube, which improves resolution by 20%. This tube prevents image distortion, common in low cost night vision devices and standard gen 1 tubes. Field of view is improved across the whole imaging area with high resolution and geometric image precision provided by the CF-Super tube, which allows effective observation of an object located in any part of the unit’s field of view.

The Sentinel also features a remote control with secure attachment, which allows the remote on/off switch to control the on/off function of the scope and the IR illuminator. It is small enough to attach to the stock on a rifle. The remote on/off switch is screwed onto the input jack, instead of simply inserted. This secure attachment provides assurance there are no surprises of the remote switch not activating your scope when ready to shoot.

NS-520-2H Gen 2 High Performance Night Vision Scope NS-520-2H Gen 2 High Performance Night Vision Scope

Welcome to the best night vision scope under $2500! The new NS-520-2H features a top-of-the-line high performance generation 2 image intensifier tube which is a huge step up from gen 2+ and mid grade gen 2 scopes typically available. Our superior image tubes combined with outstanding optics will give these units performance that approaches gen 3! No other scope near this price range even comes close to our NS 520 when it comes to low light performance and edge to edge clarity. Extensive testing on a scope battering recoil machine has proven these scopes to hold up to magnum caliber recoil without failure or any loss of zero which is rare in this price range. The 2.8x magnification gives users a wide field 12 degree of view, and is the perfect balance between power vs performance for gen 2 technology (many gen 2 scopes are simply over powered with too much magnification and thus results in a loss in performance). The NS-520 is equipped with a mil-dot reticle for precision aiming. At the base of these great night scopes is a quick release lever style mount that allows the user to easily remove and replace their scope with less than 1/2 MOA change to their zero. At only 35 ounces and it's compact size this scope feels light and fast on a platform such as an AR 15 or even a bolt action rifle. The NS-520 scope is the perfect choice for the serious hunter or home defense person that wants real night vision performance and reliability but doesn't have a 4k budget!

As always please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions or just need some advice. 1-800-771-6845

Image Tube Summary: The Standard Generation 3 image tube is an excellent value. Although these are nice image tubes they are typically not as good as the Gen 3A (Alpha or A Grade), however the Gen 3 Standard allows you to get Gen 3 performance at a great, great price!
Noteworthy Features: Manual Gain Control
Feature Summary: The Manual Gain Control is one of the best performance enhancing options you can have on a night vision device. This feature gives the user the ability to override the automatic gain control that is standard on most night vision units, thus allowing the manual gain adjustment to boost light gain beyond where the built-in auto gain would go in very low light situations. In essence it gives the user control to "tweak the brightness" of the night vision device to the users preference based on current light conditions which will often result in resolving objects that were too washed out or too dark to previously be identified.

Product Summary:
Simply put, our D-760 night vision scope is the best long range night vision scope on the market. The venerable D-760 can reach out farther and cut through darker conditions than any other night vision scope.

The rugged design utilizes space-age materials to reduce weight and improve recoil resistance.

Our Night Optics D-760 Night Vision Scope, Gen 3 AGM
Image Intensifier Tube Type: ITT Pinnacle / Autogated Gen 3 - with Manual Gain Control (includes data sheet)
Image Tube Summary: Simply put our ITT Pinnacle image tubes are the elite level of night vision image intensifier tubes. These tubes are what is currently being used by our US Military and are currently available for civilian use, however export of these units from the U.S. like all Gen 3 equipment is strictly prohibited without a proper export license. These ITT Pinnacle image tubes are equipped with autogated power supplies that allow these units to excel in all low light conditions regardless of artificial "light pollution "that exists in urban areas. This autogating greatly reduces "halo" around any light sources and also eliminates the need for the unit to go into light-overload safety shutdown when exposed to excessive light. If you will be using your night vision device in urban areas or in "light polluted" situations than this image tube will double your night vision capability!
