Just finished a new video. I developed some NV compatible spotter tracer rohnds for my 40mm grenade launchers.

We did some preliminary testing of the spotter components at the east coast meetup on Saturday night. I finally got some material in to make the tracer element. I filmed this through a GP gen3 PVS-14 bungee corded to a board with my phone, lol. Wife is buying me an NV recorder for Christmas and I'm working on printing a gopro to PVS-14 adapter now.

Hope you guys enjoy

40mm with Night Vision.

Normally i use the M203 as more people enjoy seeing it. But i don't have any NV compatible aiming system for it yet. Though I shoot it enough I may have been able to hit the board at that distance. I'm probably the only guy that could actually use a psq-18, lol.

The cheap red dot im using isn't even NV rated. But the green dot is mostly filtered out by my anvis lenses. So it works out nicely

Much enjoyed it. I should ditch my 37mm's and get a 40

Yep! Sometimes it is just chunks of them. Took a little bit of trial and error to see what colors show up best and shine the brightest.

Ive been thinking about sight for my shorty 40 and nv use. Not a fan tho of anything available as I want to keep the form factor small and constrained to the top rail, not hanging off the side. Seems like an RMR on top of a rail that hinged in the front, and you could pull up the back and a spring loaded latch could catch a 100 and 200 yard setting would be perfect. Using a red dot and looking thru the top of the receiver would be no issue.

Seems like a good excuse to get a 3D printer for some prototypes

I bought a broken quadrant sight off venture surplus as I figured it would be a good start. Just need to modify it with a rail to mount a ret dot. I would love one of the meprolight gl-40 sights that are on gunbroker. But they cost more than my launchers lol. And I have other priorities.

That is so damn cool.  This might be the nudge I need to get into DDs.

Next time i get an opportunity to go to a night shoot, I'll let some more people shoot them so I can get longer range video. Unfortunately all the local ranges close at dark. So I just have my pasture to test in, which makes logistics easy, just doesn't work out well for longer shots. Maybe I can talk my neighbor into letting me use his longer range

I pulled a couple bullets from 45 colt cowboy loads last night that I filled the base up with the same paint. Just doing a proof of concept to see if the NV tracer will work with those. If it does work i may be getting into reloading smaller calibers haha. I also got some sheets of glow stickers to try out.
