Will it work on an ar with a front sight post. I know it doesnít interfere with a traditional scope. But since digital night vision is basically a camera ,I have my doubts . Have any of you tried it and what was your experience.

It doesnít interfere so long as you use an ir illuminator on the handguard our in front of the front sight post

My photon sits in a Burris PEPR behind a fsp. Donít notice it with or without the illuminator.

Yes I have tried it.

The front sight post with digital is just like it is with a regular optical scope for the most part. It's there, but after about 3x magnification you don't see it.

The problem we did have was with the IR illuminator. If your IR Illuminator is mounted behind the front sight (like mounted on the side of the ATN X-Sight) it reflects all the IR light back into the scope and you just get a washed out screen to look at. Solution is to mount the illuminator forward and to the side of the front sight or under the barrel so the IR light doesn't reflect back into the scope.
