While deer hunting we managed to get in a little night vision shooting with both rifle and handgun.
My cheap china stuff ain’t nothing compared to my army days and my civilian class laser isn’t as good but we managed to find the steel and hear the pings.
There are definitely differences. I got 2 sets of this china stuff 2 years ago for $600 with mounts.
I’m not out night man hunting night stalker mode. It’s mainly guard duty and critter removal so it’s acceptable.
I wouldn’t give it much more than that of a rating.
Lol thus our session which definitely showed otherwise. “Where’d the laser go?” “I lost my dot!” “Why am I not hearing a ping?” hearing a helmet drop and “the batteries fell out” and my beloved air farce buddy saying “now what am I doing?”
It was more like Abbot and Costello in all drag and no speed with the local raccoons laughing than ST6 SF Rangers Raiders high speed low drag
but that’s why we did it. Get through the curve and learn
I was pleased that the IR laser sight in was on. I used a small mirror attached to my shed at 50yds. One held the rifle and the other made adjustments. When the laser hit the mirror it would disappear.
