I recently acquired a used night vision scope called a Pantera Hitek RN-S01A. Does anybody know if they are any good and how much it might be worth? My understanding is is that it is a Gen III, but not 100% sure on that as I can't find out anything after doing a Google search.

Thanks.

Yup, that is an Elcan mount the scope is attached to.

Spymall has them listed between $3000 and $5000 depending on generation. Scroll down almost to the bottom of the link.

ETA:

Upon further investigation, it appears the now defunct Hitek Int'l was a mfg'ing, importing, and distributing company. There url, www.nightsight.com is no longer good and has been purchased by a third party for resale. It appears they used to operated out of San Fransisco and have since disappeared.

You think it's worth selling? It works great, especially with one of Victors Torches. I'd let it go so I could finance a smaller NV device if there was interest. I'll post it on EE if there is.

If anybody has a price that this could be reasonably sold for, I think I will post it to EE to fund the purchase of another NV scope. If I can get this to sell, I'll probably be in touch Victor

Last bump. Anybody able to help on this? I'd like to sell it to get a different NV scope that better suits my needs.
