Whether you’re a hunter, soldier or police officer, there’s a good chance that at some point you’re going to have to find a target in the dark. This can be really tricky, as there are a number of options available. Most rifle scope manufacturers boast about the size of their objective lens and the amazing lens coatings that provide superior light transmission. These are very important for shooting in low light conditions, but they have their limitations. That limitation is your eyes. If it’s too dark to see without a traditional optic, it’s going to be too dark to see with an optic. That’s where night vision comes in handy.
Night vision comes in multiple generations, with each more powerful and capable than the last, but you have to consider a number of factors when selecting a night vision rifle scope. A NV binocular or monocular an be a great help, but when you need to take a shot, you need your scope to give you a clear view. As most of you know, there are a number of factors to consider when buying a rifle scope. When you buy a night vision rifle scope you need to consider those same factors AND the features that are specifically for night vision.
If you take a look at the Night Optics Gen 3 4x100mm Night Vision Rifle Scope, you can see the important features for a regular scope, with the inclusion of high tech 3rd Gen Night Vision. 4x magnification will help you take an accurate shot without distorting the image. The large 100mm objective lens will collect a lot of light. Since the night vision technology in this scope amplifies light, it’s important the lens collects as much light as possible.
When you buy a rifle scope, no doubt one of the most important features you consider is how tough it is. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the military, a serious hunter or a target shooter who never roughs up his scope, toughness is crucial. Even if you don’t bang your scope around regularly, it needs to be tough enough to stand up to recoil. Night Optics made sure their Gen 3 Scope is more than tough enough to handle recoil and whatever punishment you put it through. This extends to waterproofing as well, so don’t worry about getting a little moisture on your scope. It’ll still give you all the performance you need.
Of course, there’s a trade-off when it comes to toughness, and that’s weight. You could make an indestructible scope if you didn’t mind how much it weighs, but keeping the weight down requires a lot of clever work and the use of incredibly advanced materials. Night Optics uses some of the world’s best materials in all of their scopes to provide all the toughness while maintaining a comfortably lightweight
The Night Optics Gen 3 4x100mm Night Vision Rifle Scope was designed for anyone who needs the absolute top of performance. Police and military pros, hunters and more love this scope.
So what’s the secret of accurate night shooting? Make sure your night vision rifle scope has the features you require of a regular scope, but with added durability to accommodate night vision technology. Night Optics has what you need.
