Commercial Digital In-line Add-on Library

Postby Radagast » 26 Feb 2016, 02:59

Q:What is an in-line add-on?
A: a night vision device that fits in front of or behind a normal day scope / telescopic sight, effectively converting it to a night sight.
Q: Are these only digital devices? No. There are traditional 'tubed' and thermal devices as well. This thread is only for links to discussions of digital devices.
Q: Why would I buy one?
A: If you already have a suitable rifle and day scope, it solves the problem of buying another rifle to set up s a dedicated night shooting gun. If you have more than one rifle, most devices can be swapped between them as needed.
Q: Can I make my own?
A: Yes. There is a comprehensive library of home builds stickied in the DIY sub forum.

Ward D Vision:
Also known as Wardy Vision, this comes in two variants, the original and the Ward D Vision 700 using the E700 camera common in home builds. The Ward D Vision uses a prism so the camera is mounted out of line with the scope, making for a relatively short unit. The WDV700 Is currently the best in line unit on the market. Unlike other brands there are very few complaints about performance. The one common complaint is that the manufacturer Clive Ward is hard to contact. A Personal Message through this forum is usually answered promptly, so if he doesn't respond to emails, send him a PM.

Nite-Tek NT300 & Nite-Tek NT120:
Produced by NVFUK member Marky610, the king of the home builders. Equal performance to the Ward D Vision 700 or Mini, in a slightly longer body. Cheaper too. No longer produced.
