So I was sitting on the deck killing a large mio sweet tea. And 6 ft away a large rat strolls by me like we’re old buddies! Looking to put some thing simple on a 4x scope. My idea of simple. https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Waterproof-Infrared-IR-HD-Monocular-Night-Vision-Helmet-Telescope-Hunting-AM/282795537446?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
Figure with a combo of this and IR floodlights and a bait station. I might have some night fun.
Another piece to add https://www.ebay.com/itm/Night-Vision-Weapon-J-Arm-Mount-for-NVG-PVS-14-6015/351906496256?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649.
Well seems that my red dot is non compatible with IR. Going with this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vortex-Optics-StrikeFire-2-Red-Green-Dot-With-Cantilever-Mount-SF-RG-501/161994017087?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
Wow strikFire is here, the monocular is in Houston. Can almost see the damn rat!August 14, 2018 at 9:39 pm #275934
Every thing made it. The j arm adaptor that came with it is plastic junk. I bought a metal one but it’s not a whole lot better.
Had to use the thumb screw from the helmet mount. Kosak was only thing scopeless. Just seeing if it’s going to works out things looking up. Still waiting on IR floodlights to show.August 16, 2018 at 3:11 pm #275940August 16, 2018 at 11:55 pm #275941August 17, 2018 at 3:22 pm #275944
Ok had the light in the wrong place. The squirrel sillioutte was a true sillioutte, I shot at it 2 times. Hit it both times but never knocked it over. Single shot reloading in the dark, going to need a lot of practice. So this morning working on portable lighting.
Brain fart! Just so happen out in the shed is my 18 year old portable IV bag holder. Left over from home health after my transplant.August 17, 2018 at 3:24 pm #275945August 17, 2018 at 4:18 pm #275947
Went ahead and bought this scope the other day. From what I’ve experienced from the monocular with the dot sight. Not able to focus the setup at 2X from what I can tell. So I thought I’d give this s try.

The light pole worked out perfect. Knocked the squirrel right over looked to be dead on. Could make out the hole in the sillioutte really good. Now what to bait with?August 18, 2018 at 6:48 pm #275956
This sucks seems the fire field was delivered at some parcel locker here in the sub division. And not in my mail box, I hate these newbie mail persons.August 18, 2018 at 9:02 pm #275957
Wow sent the seller a e mail saying it wasn’t delivered to my mail box. 5 mins ago doorbell rings guy from amazon hands me a amazon prime package. Yes was the Firefield.August 24, 2018 at 5:38 pm #276005
So far the cheap monocular with the digital IR format way better sight picture. And the vortex not really a good match up.i’m not great shooter when it comes to red dot. Crosshairs reticles is where it’s at for me.September 2, 2018 at 4:25 pm #276100
Dropping the crosman stuff, bnm breech just not enough rail room on either breeches. Nobody wants to trade mutants so looks like the STD. Vortex strike fire 2 out. Trying this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sightmark-Ultra-Dual-Shot-Pro-Spec-NV-Sight-QD-w-Laser-SM14003/162920361946?epid=4021964476&hash=item25eecf6fda:g:~zEAAOSwSKtaa8KiSeptember 7, 2018 at 9:07 pm #276150September 8, 2018 at 6:49 pm #276157
Sight Mark settings for gen1 nv I can’t make out reticle. Same for gen2 setting. My IR illinator battery took a crap and the spare wouldn’t even charge lol. Oo oops forgot the sight is a great sight the sidebyside laser cool beans :8: :5:
