View Full Version : Will this NV work?

I just bought a Strikefire, still waiting for it to ship, but its coming. I was playing with my friends Strikefire, and he pointed out the NV, night vision, button. it dims the dot below what is visible to the naked eye so it wont blind NV optics.I wanted to buy some relatively cheap 1st generation head mounted night vision monoculars or binoculars, at 1x power, so that I could use them with the strikefire, mostly for fun. I was doing research on them and they say it can focus objects starting at one meter away, so does this mean that it won't pick up the dot in the optis or that it will be blurry? As I am guessing the objective of the NV will only be around an inch away from the Strikefire. Anyone have experience or knowledge to help "shed some light" on my NV qeustion. If it helps here are the three systems I was thinking about getting.




I was also thinking the binoculars would be better than monoculars because they have an increased field of view, how ever that come with almost double the weight...

Are IR lasers legal? If so they would make more sence, as it would be a very hard cheekweld to have to line up the thing attatched to your head with the sight on the rifle. And get ready to hear 1st gen night vision is crap.

Im ready to hear that its crap, but I can't afford the 3 grand to have anything better, not untill i'm done with college. Hmm, I never even thought of the cheek wield thing... I guess this really isn't practical? Dang, cause the video games make it look like so much fun...
