Default Night Vision

I was wondering what would be the best night vision to get without breaking the checkbook

I am also looking into getting one myself. Way to many out there to accurately sift through without going nuts! Want something decent but not cheap p.o.s. been reading reviews on different websites just to nervous to buy something that I'm not going to be happy with.

Don't know about others but Night Eyes is probably the way I'm gonna go.
Good price
Good range
and from what I understand good service

Default Jumping on the NV bandwagon

I've been a die hard red light guy....but have been thinking about setting up a dedicated rig for night vision. In fact I am almost done with another AR build to be that rig...just need the barrel, gas block and tube, all of which are "in the mail" on their way.

The rifle will be complete as soon as the parts arrive but I'm still deciding what to throw on top. I've read and hear a lot of good things about the Sightmark Wraith HD 4-32x50....that may be the route I go....but probably not until my Spring bonus comes in...the Wife is still simmering down from all the AR parts I ordered in the last few weeks....lol

That said, I will still have several rifles rigged up with lights...

Has anybody used a night vision monocular? I can see using one if you had two guys , one spotting for the other.

Just a thought but if looking through a mono. Then looking through a scope would you loose night vision at your eyeball?

The Sightmark Wraith is a night vision scope. From what I've read the 320night vision mono pairs up well with it.

I think I understood your question...
