Is this model ONLY visible with NV equipment, or does it have visible white light? Scored one for very very cheap, want to make sure its actually usable before it gets shipped out.

Disclaimer, I have not used the IR version. However, it looks from the specs like its exclusively NV. You might want to call wherever you ordered it from and confirm.

I did a quick search and found this video on YouTube.

He speaks about the light at around 2:35, and says that since it's the IR model that it does not produce a visible light, so if that is true than you would need to be using night vision to see it.

Thanks, Gotta cancel it.

Had a feeling there was a reason it was so cheap.

There's no law against this in California right?

Just carry your cellphone in the other hand in camera mode. Instant NV!

There is for rifle mounted NV. I believe NV goggles are GTG. And their maybe only a few grand so saving the few bux on the light is a win-win ;)

^ edit to say there is a law against NV mounted scopes.
