Don't bother mate waste of your hard earned cash. The issue kit is better than anything you can buy civvie side mate.

Bresser Digilal night scope £99.99 in Lidel first generation with II/IRvideo output but it works for me. do a search as there was quit a lomg wind up on me over this

And if its got an IR output then it'll be an active device and his posn will be highlighted to any en viewing through II. Frankly I think TTs advice is spot on.

TT is right. the issue kit is far superior. But for vfm, the LIDL jobbie is very good. They will probably have them again, just keep looking out for them. But realitsically, its only good for vermin control, security work or camping. not for war.

Tropper talking crap again . To think your a fellow welshman as well.
Why's he talking crap? The OP never said what he wanted it for. It may well fit the purpose he requires it for.

OK you stupid fu***** where does he say he wants it for ops,I cannot think why any serving soldier would want to pay for a bit of very expensive kit such as state of the art NV, FFS thats like buying your own weapons, I use mine for Shooting at night and Photography and it works great

Tropper, you might want to adjust your aim, as at the moment it looks like you're shooting the OP :wink:

You missed dogging as you can hold it with one hand.

Soldier asks about procuring night vision on the Army rumour service. Without a caveat that he was NOT going to use it on Service time, I would presume (worst case scenario) thats what he was thinking. He may not know the difference between active and passive kit.

If youre throwing your teddy out the pram because of the response to your 'use active NV kit' post, get over yourself.

lol well i saw one of my lads had one on our last weekend exercise, and with bounty hopefully coming up i thought i would treat myself, i dont want an expensive set as i have seen a couple of nvgs that i like, they definantly not for dogging as one post puts, but they will be handy when im doing navigation at night and for rabbiting

The big difference is the cheaper night vision devices are just a CCTV camara and moniter built into one usualy with a active IR source to other users of Image intensifier equipment the good stuff you look like your using a very powerfull flashlight when using those. They also eat up batteries. True Image intensifiers are very expensive and cant be used during the day without the filter and bairly use any power unless it's the L7A2 night sight then you just have to make sure you get extra AA batteries from the QM the first two will last several nights the others don't last that long after you take them out of your other toys.

If you want a TI scope, come out to BSN and wander around the burn pit for a while. I found (yes, found) one there last week! 8O

I have a set of Gen III Anvis under my desk, with embedded symbology and a panoramic view.

I'll start the bidding at £1 with a reserve of £150,000, that would still be a nice £100K off the RRP.

Get raiding those penny jars
