Trying to help out my brother in law. He is looking to buy a night vision scope for an AR15 and he figured since I know more than he does about firearms I should know what kind of NV scope to buy.

Only problem with that is I have no experience with NV scopes so thought I would come he for some insight, suggestions and opinions.

He wants to stay around $1000, no more. Will be using it to hunt hogs mainly and varmints occasionally.

So anyone with first hand experience with these optics please weigh in with the pros/cons. How far can you clearly see an animal, clarity, performance with bright moon/no moon, ect?

Thanks for your time, Brandon

a primer on night vision

Night vision devices sense radiation on a wavelength that is not visible to the human eye. They then convert the image to one that is visible.

There are three ways night vision devices can work:

Image Intensification by magnifying what little light is reflected from the target
Thermal Imaging by collecting the heat waves from the target
Active Illumination by image intensification, plus adding some light of its own to the target; gives off a detectable light signature in the process
"Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."
