night vision scope

Looking for personal experience in Gen 1 NV scopes. Gen 1 because I believe that's all that's in my price range. I've searched the web so looking for personal exp. Night time hunting here in Michigan is limited to shotgun and rim fire.....this would go on my 22 mag which shoots 1/2 MOA @ 100 from the bench.

Re: night vision scope

I'd be very interested in this too. I have been looking for a scope attachment to use for hog hunting at night.

Re: night vision scope

Ive never used it for coyotes but used gen 1 nightvision in the sandbox and wasnt too thrilled pretty pixelated and not a ton of detail. The gen 2 or 3 were much better. Just my 2 cents

Re: night vision scope

know some people here in s.tex. that have gone the whole route, with night vison for hogs . they spent a lot of money on night vision equitment, now its all on the shelf, they use a thermal imageing devise, about the size of a small range finder . and a green or red laser light that lights up to about 200 yrds.its a lot smaller& lighter and works better and a whole lot cheaper,use the thermal to find them the laser light to shoot with it works real good.

Re: night vision scope

What laser light are they using? The one I have seen was almost $300 and the performance was not that great, even at 100 yards.

Re: night vision scope

Aren't thermal imaging devices a whole nother HUGE step up? I saw a few and they cost atleast $10,000 and I saw one thermal weapon sight, it was $26,000.... Where can you get better deals on them?

Re: night vision scope

im not sure where their buying this stuff , but can find out i will check out where they get it and what it costs,i think the laser light they use costs about 400.00 bucks but dont know how much the thermal costs , the thermal is not a scope . its hand held and about the size of a range finder,they tell me it works great.
