    The “Elf” is like 99 bucks or cheaper on Ebay. I know some have used that in the past. You can use a cheaper nighvision if you have good IR illumination to light up your target.

    Yukon NVMT would be next step up from the elf for around $180.

    I tried to buy an ELF just top try it out, but the order got cancelled…..

    I’ve used Yukons and they are very good for Gen 1, Much better than the Night Owl/Bushnells etc. Only Gen 1 I’ve used better than the Yukon was an ATN which cost a lot more and the difference there wasnt that great.

    Just wondering, of the items I see listed, none have cross hairs.

    My question is, how do these function as sights on an air gun?

    Am I missing something or are these just used to spot game, not to sight in on the game?

    Thanks

    You mount the monocular behind the riflescope and use the riflescopes crosshairs to aim.

    Give’s a decent picture for a lot less than a dedicated NV riflescope.

    (Its less blurry than that in real life, Camera not so good)

    Downside is that the eyepeice is pretty far back. Can correct that by mounting the scope further forward which is easily done with the Talon’s, not so easy on other guns.

    Or you can use them with a laser.

    YN, thanks for the info.. My small old mind had an issue with figuring that out. I’ll give that a try.

    Great ideas here, hope those that have tried it, do not mind if I do also.

    BTW. I read somewhere that yukon is coming out with a new dedicated nv scope this march. Its going to be in the $200s.

    And it uses the same technology as the ranger. So its light safe.

    Hi!

    I got to say, i use my yukon nv gen1 scope on my crossbow, it works great, i have been using it for a year now and i dont have any complaints.

    The night visions that i tried are pretty much all the same….i never used the expensive ones, but as far as the cheap ones go, yukon is a pretty reliable choice.

    For a short range hunting/plinking (up to approx. 75meters) its a good scope, but on a proper rifle i believe its powers are limited.

    They grey part is just a coupling between the NV and the Scope. Or at least that is what I take it as.

    Its just a Rubber plumbing reducer – I borrowed that NV and coupler from Cygnusx. Grey wouldn’t be my first choice – I used a black one with mine but sold it all…

    I dont have anything at the moment. I’m waiting for Yukon to release a Digital NV riflescope.

    If that doesnt show up anytime soon I might get an Elcan Digital Day/Night scope.
