Things I liked: Clear and crisp images with good range, even without using the illuminator. You pay for the privilege and while I am no expert, I have tried a few different systems including ATN, Pulsar and Bushnell but this is the best Gen 1 or sub 1,000 dollar night vision device I have ever used. If anything I would consider this a Gen 1+ in that it is at the upper end of the resolution and sharpness for what this technology can detect at its given level. I absolutely own the night now and can pick off cans or (where legal as I travel a lot) pests after the sun goes down.
Things I would have changed: Not much. For the money it's an outstanding system and I feel thoroughly satisfied with its capabilities. One issue is that inside of 25-30 yards the focus is poor and inside of 20-25 everything is pretty out of focus, it won't focus any closer than that which is the opposite problem I've had with other night vision devices which past that distance the image quality degrades so it's still more pro than con. If I could only pick one I would rather see things a little farther like this system can. One regret is having waited to buy one. Like so many wonderful pieces of technology it is so practical and useful you will wonder how you ever made it without one. I should have bought mine sooner, if you're considering this, do it. Just don't use it in the daytime as the excess light can ruin the electronics.
What others should know: FYI mine is installed on a tuned Hammerli 850 Airmagnum that delivers about 17.5-18 or so FPE but what I shoot at the ranges I use it doesn't know the difference, mostly household objects. I understand that the scope costs significantly more than the gun even with its tuning and mods but I honestly feel there is a minimum threshold as with all technologies where if the quality is less than a certain amount they are not worth it. For example I have a pair of supposedly pretty decent night vision binoculars that cost slightly less than this scope but past 30-40 yards the images are pretty out of focus and the truth is that an inexpensive, $150 pair of 7x50 binoculars is more useful in almost all situations except the very darkest forest. The extra money is worth it for this system and I would consider it the minimum that is truly practical and useable for hunting, self defense and property surveillance in the night vision category.
Things I liked: I can see them night creeping critters. Works super with my Airforce rifle. Really good quality from a former Iron Curtain country.
Things I would have changed: Improve the IR light.
What others should know: Lets you whisper sweet nothings in the night critters' ears. Like another reviewer said " OWN the night! " The perfect and logical addition to an airforce Talon SS. It's worth getting one.
Things I liked: Own the Night - you'll wonder how you went so long without one.
Things I would have changed: Promote this product more
What others should know: Mounted on a GAMO CO2 Extreme. Kills critters in the dark just fine.
