Comments about ATN Aries MK350 Guardian Generation 1 Night Vision Rifle Scope:
Ok I have a 300yds rifle range at the house with steel human silos every 100yds. On a semi clear, halfway illuminated night I could see the 200yd target easily. It wasn't the best resolution at that range, but it was good enough to id what it was.
Now the racoons have been raiding my feeder and 6 of them met their demise with 6 shots with this mounted on a 7mm-08. The trick is you have to use the illuminator, looking down a dark sendero with tree cover it is hard to see what is going on, but at 75yds you can see easily exactly what is there.
It isn't the easiest thing in the world to get sighted in, but it works. I mounted it on a detachable riser and can swithc it out with my daytime scope easily and it doesn't change zero. But I think you might have issues with it if you used the provided mount and took it on and off constantly. I wanted to avoid that issue.
I am impressed with what I found, I really wasn't expecting much from a Gen 1 unit and it was the first purchase in awhile that I have found to be better than advertised. Reviews are really lacking on night vision and so I felt I needed to put in my two cents.
I am sure it isn't the greatest in the world, but for what it costs it is perfectly capable of you being able to make shots to 200yds and I am curious as to how well it works with a full moon and clear night. This week the hogs are going to be targeted with it since they like to show up at 1am.
I do not think you will be disappointed in what arrives if you purchase this. Oh and by the way it has a small zippered compartment on the front that has the batteries, warranty card, wrench, and allen wrench in it.
I highly suggest you buy a weaver railed full length base for the rifle you want to mount it on and a couple detachable risers to make swapping it out easier.
