Looking for input on NV weapon scopes.

Post by syndrone » Thu Jul 24, 2008 2:53 pm

Hello everyone, I recently purchased a remington 700 sps tactical chambered in .308cal. This type of weapon is fairly new to me as most of my experience has been with handguns and "sporting" rifles. I wanted to ad to my collection something that would be able to "reach out and touch". I do not hunt game but do enjoy recreational and combat shooting. Does anyone have any experience with night vision optics? I am contemplating Gen.1 versions based on affordability. I do realize that this limits me to about 100-150 yards total darkness in theory, and not take full advantage of the accuracy of this rifle, but will I have any good use of this scope with a daylight filter? And will daytime/starlight use have any effect on increasing range of recognition?

Hi, this is definitely a question for our scope Guru Dave. I'll try to make sure he sees this post. He's got quite a collection of scopes by now and hopefully will be able to help you out. Marie
