I knew what I was getting when I ordered it. It is a Gen1, nothing more. NV is nothing like on video games or the movies. I have owned different ones and used generation 2, 2+ and 3, those are vastly better but at a price to match.
I owned another popular brand that was slightly bigger than this. It wasn't waterproof but the lenses could be interchanged. That turned out to be only a very small benefit. The higher the zoom on these, the less field of vision, which is one of the biggest problems with Gen1.
Here are the inherent limitations: The sight picture seems small at first, if you line it up with your free eye, then the picture you see goes together seamlessly, if you can line it up and focus it well. The focus needs to be constantly adjusted, you can't look far, then look at your feet without focusing.
It has a 30 degree field of view. That is the equivalent of looking through a toilet-roll, in fact, a toilet-roll with green glass in front of it with distortion around the edges. Keep in mind that you will probably not favor this over a flashlight, unless you want to be a bit hidden.
With the infra-red illumination off, you may be impressed if you just get up from your bright computer and take a walk out in the dark. It enables you to see a little better than you will when your eyes have adjusted to the dark. (but not much in most situations)
With the infra-red illumination turned on you will be able to see down an ally or back yard (about 80 feet) very well. It may be too bright for indoor use, although you can place a finger over the light, some of the IR light will still get through your finger and enable you to see up close. brightness cannot be adjusted, eye piece brightness also has no adjustment.
The IR light is visible on all Gen1 units, but much less visible than a white light. Since the unit has such a narrow field of vision, the IR light also only needs to have a narrow beam, making it difficult for others to see you.
Something interesting about the unit and illuminator, If you look at black nylon like webbing on a back pack, the infra-red light may make it appear nearly light bright green. You could use a tv remote as a small infra-red light source, you may be able to see okay in a bedroom or down a hall. One idea is to buy some IR light sticks, or IR IED's with motion detectors and nail them to trees in the yard, that will make viewing in complete dark a bit better for you.
It takes two AA batteries, I would like if it took one cr123 better, it would be lighter and only have one battery to replace but the two AA last very long and it works well with rechargeable AA's It is so light on battery, that even when you turn the unit off it can still be used without the illumination for quite a few seconds.(sometimes 20 sec)
Even with its problems I like it, even though it is not practical for every night use, not very good for walking around with when you can use a flashlight. If you play airsoft, paintball or just feel the need to own some military history that will help you blend in at night, while seeing a bit in the dark, then this may be for you.
It is well made (from Russia)
Just know what you are getting and don't expect too much.
#1 Beef: The head harness can't be aligned with either eye because there's no horizontal adjustment on the mount. Also gives me a raging headache after 2 hours (might be me).
The Gen 1 tube amplifies twilight best (EENT). The variable front focal length seems good on paper, but there's so little tension that it falls out of focus with every step. The diopter adjustment is the same way. The focal alignment from eye to aperture is extremely sensitive. You have to have it exactly level, both horizontally and vertically, and exactly lined up with your pupil to provide a useful image. Turning on the integrated IR illuminator usefully gets you about 50yds in thick central Texas scrub in moonlight < 30%.
All in all, I honestly haven't had a chance to use it with my Sightmark SM14002 red dot yet so I may update this when I put it on a stable rifle, but only buy this thing if you plan to sit on the porch at night and watch the opossums walk by (neat if you have kids).
Magnification, resolution, blur, and tube artifacts were all within expected parameters. I hope it'll work a little better on the rail mount.
