T20 ir build

Post by Pike25lb » 18 Jul 2018, 12:30

Hi all I have a spare t20 with a cheap ir in been thinking would the ruby ir pill fit in one or one from irlightbuilds fit and can I get a yukon 50 mm lens to ad on my self

Or would it be better to just buy one already built a sunranger

Also I have a ward t20 ir not sure what ir model it is how can I tell

Also is it easy enough to fit a yukon lens 50mm to it
Would that improve it thanks

Hi Pike25lb,

I used to use one of our Black Sun 2 in a 67mm T67 and have now moved over to a Black Sun Ruby in a standard T20.

I'm not finding myself wanting for more illumination and have saved a huge amount of weight on the rifle.

I would say try a Black Sun Ruby pill in your unmodified T20 first.

If you then feel you need even more range, turning it into a Sunnranger is as easy as chopping off a bit of the Bezel and then screwing the Yukon lens into it. :thumbup:


Cheers

blacksun ruby pill is the dogs

Plus you can always upgrade to a sunnranger if you need more
when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

That sounds like an extremely old Oslon Black.

The T20 Black Sun Ruby Pill will go straight in: http://www.nightvisionstore.co.uk/black ... 2x24623160

The difference in performance will be absolutely massive!
