Best scope for NV add on

Post by Fox Hunter » 18 Oct 2011, 18:46

What's the BEST scope for use with an NV add on?

Does it matter or make any difference if it's used with GEN 1,2 or 3?

What actually makes it the BEST?

Who's got one for sale cheap? :lol:

Nooooooooooooo :lol:




Thought I should say something vaguely constructive, so - I've tried quite a few scopes with a few monoculars and don't think I've noticed anything better or worse (mag for mag).
Some sort of focus adjustment is preferable but if you shine enough IR at the target they all seem to work just fine ;)

Side parralax is a must IMO front is to hard to reach and you can block or reflect the ir. I use a bushnell but have tried a few mambas were good with the nv bit not good enough with out for me. Ags seem to work well to

I've heard the mambas had a good name with an add on and was thinking along those lines but I'd also be shooting alot in daylight so you've thrown a spanner in the works there.

When people say expensive scopes don't work well with add on's because of the 'expensive coatings' what is the problem?

Is the picture blury or do they just need more IR illumination to see anything?

Sounds as if the shortlist is Mamba, AGS or Bushnell then???
