DIY e700 NV with Nikon Monarch 7 ?

Post by Spr1nger » 10 Sep 2015, 15:42

Long shot I know, but has anyone fooled with an e700 DIY rig in conjunction with a Nikon Monarch 7, specifically the IL 1.5-6x42: http://www.europe-nikon.com/en_GB/produ ... l-1-5-6x42

It's for boar in Belarus.

Thoughts/feedback very much appreciated.

No, but maybe not the best scope for an E700 add-on
No focus adjustment might make getting a sharp image with IR illumination difficult, although the low magnification might make it less of a problem
The illuminated reticle will not be of any use for NV work.

Thanks - that was more or less my thinking.

It's for a friend's uncle who is going after boar (and other stuff) - I have suggested a handheld NV spotter, with a green or red torch to take the shot. See what he thinks...
