Re: Pistol Grip Spotters - This is the new spec from Oct 2017

I've swapped to EVO torches for all my builds now the older T50's aren't readily available in small quantities.
A 3 memory mode Chinese spec 850nm AS LED pill will be solder fitted as standard (controlled by the outer switch) The switch is seriously quiet and will cycle through lo/med/hi power modes by half pressing it.

The torch body has an anti rotation fitting method and the torch head will rotate to zoom the IR beam.

These will be available without the torch head at £240 for buyers who already have a spare EVO head or for close range ratting.

Or add:
£20 for a 38mm lens head: Very adequate for subsonic ranges where a wide field of view is required.
£25 for a 50mm lens head: Good general purpose use to well into HMR ranges.
£30 for a 67mm lens head: Great for longer range fox spotting - particularly with a tighter zoomed beam.
£40 for a 75mm lens head: For the person who has to show he has the biggest of everything - but I personally don't think these make much difference with the new AS LED.

New optional extras:
Fitted with Black Sun IR pill + £25
Fitted with Black Sun Ruby pill + 25

Add £13 for RMSD postage.

Buyers can source their own EVO torch heads slightly cheaper from here - which helps to reduce the amount of pension money I have to tie up. :angel:

On good moonlit nights or that 'in between' light at dusk or dawn where your eye can't see but the E700 camera will respond to the stacks of ambient infra red light you will see near infinity without an illuminator thanks to the high quality KPC E700 low light camera. On poor moonlit nights you'll see very little unless you use the 3 power mode zoom illuminator - which is why they have two switches. :angel:

I can supply them with a choice of C mount lenses: 50mm which is great for general rabbit and fox duty or a 25mm lens for a wider field of view better suited to rabbit/ratting ranges and the quarry being smaller on the screen, particularly if being fitted to a vehicle roof over undulating land. If no size is specified a 50mm lens will be supplied as default.

Also available with an F2 50mm board lens that is not nearly as clear at long range - but has a much deeper depth of view that is much more focus tolerant so it hardly ever needs focus adjustment between most useful ranges.

[color=#0000FF]Please try to remember to specify which lens type you prefer - and please don't hate me for offering choices that might lead to hand wringing.
C mount lenses will be supplied as default. :angel:

The ergonomic pistol grip is more manly hand sized than some I have seen, it has a lanyard loop in it and can be swapped for a tripod or adjustable suction mount. I can also fit a solid machined handle that has a 6mm threaded bush in the base to accommodate the 6mm thread of a very powerful rubberised roof mount.

A 5" adjustable brightness monitor acts as a flip off lid to the electronics box that can also be extended into your truck by virtue of an extension umbilical cord. The box requires three USER SUPPLY FLAT TOP 18650 batteries: I don't supply batteries or chargers so the buyer doesn't need to return the spotter if a battery fails - and if one goes bang because he did something silly he won't be suing me either. :)

This is how the box is opened for battery changing - you MUST NOT PULL THE SUNSHADE TO OPEN THE BATTERY BOX!:

Prices start from £240 collected for one with a regular Chinese AS pill + £13 RMSD to UK postcodes - and no torch head. I will only export if the buyer agrees that my responsibility for shipping ends at our port of export - proof of posting will be supplied.

I recommend this charger:

And if you don't have an old laptop battery to get 8x 'free' 18650 batteries from, these batteries are a good buy:

The pistol grip handle is packed loose to save packaging box size and materials - buyer to fit the nut onto the thread before use with pliers or 11mm spanner - but manly hand tight will suffice.[/quote]

The monitors have been known to let water wick in through the frame and ruin the screen: Be advised these are sold as not waterproof and I will not consider any water damage as a warranty issue. I provide a 12 month warranty for other issues.

Yes - assuming you use a 67mm torch head - but obviously not as clear an image as seen through a scope at that range.
Price is £230 with a 67mm lens and pistol grip handle + £13 RMSD P&P.

I have updated my last post with details I ought to have added some time ago - best have another read through it:

I've had a bit of an upset from an overseas buyer who pulled off the sunshade of his KwikFit Add On monitor because he skip read my sales post that gives specific instructions on how to open the box. When I pointed out he ought to have followed the link to the video about it he got rather upset at my banter about bloke's not reading instructions - and now hates me. Maybe Swede's don't get British humour. :crazy:
