    I came across some night vision equipment from a company called Sightmark. I've never heard of them, but I haven't been looking at night vision stuff that long. Does anyone have experience with their NV products?

    Thanks for any replies.

    Two of my ARs wear sight mark reflex sights.

    I have one of their nightvision scopes, that has worked well. I use it for hog hunting at night and it has accounted for quite a few. The only problem I have had with it is I lost the filter/lens cap that allows you to sight one in during the daytime. I called them and they sent me an updated version free of charge....couldn't beat that. I have been amazed at how long the batteries last in it, since it is powered by two AA, but it seems to go a long time.

    IMG_0327.jpg I bought one for my son's AR. It was the the mid priced "zombie" edition. I went ahead and bought it despite my loathing for anything "zombie "
    The Z edition holds a zero. Has 4 different reticles. Brightness adj. Quick detach mount. I have had it for at least two years. I don't think I have changed the battery yet.
    I used that rifle and sight to kill a coyote from the platform of my combine. I killed the coyote on the run...but also slightly wounded my combine, lol.

    When I built my last AR project, I topped it with the high-end sightmark mil-spec sight. It has one reticle and adj brightness. It is waterproof to 40 meters. I like it. It is well built, sturdy and the batteries last.

    My first shot mortally wounded him, but he made a dash for the standing corn. I fired one too many.
