Does anyone have any pictures with the effective range of the modlite IR head and PID?

Debating dual modlights and the tnvc laser for a 22 build for the freaking cat food thieves.

I’ve heard the 850 heads autogate the tube any truth to that TNVC?

850 head 3OO yards

Relatively new to NV world. Debating a Modlite IR setup to pair with a laser unit that lacks a illumination because my impression is that all the civ legal illuminators sub MAWL are quite weak. Given what little I've learned, that 850 head sounds impressive. Would this be a reasonable set up for ~250 and in?

I have a Modlite 850 head, a coworker has a PERST3.

The Perst 3 is better up close. It has more even light with diffuser and wont blind you and its wider of a beam. PERST is better at long range on the order of multiple times the range its not even close.

Modlite 850 has too much power and too much spill. It dims your NV via autogating substantially. Its not a great illuminator. Its great out to 100 yards but not much past unless you have nothing for the spill to reflect off of. The beam is like a suped up Surefire M600V or two... or five... or eleventeen...

Also, the PERST 3 crushes the MAWL C1. I mean the DBAL D2 already beats the MAWL barely but PERST crushes it for illuminator output... it is not a joke. But MAWL is way more ergonomic and has a more useful beam shape.

No joke...

Yes I understand the perst is freaking amazing. But my 22lr doesnt need illumination out to 800 yds.

For a .22 I'd just use an IR Surefire. If its for a magnified i2 weaponsight I'd use something with more of a tight beam like a ELIR with IR filter removed, that way it just fills the scope view. You wont need more than 70 yards with a .22 and IR laser. The bullet is dropping way too much for 100+ yards. The 850 Modlite is just blazing ridiculous IR all over. Totally different than something like the SPIR which has better evenness and can be focused, but SPIR is overkill for a .22 as well.

Just got one. Didn’t have any issues outdoors with autogating anything. Shot against berms at 25 & 50 yards.
The light created quite the illumination and shadow of a steel target, I couldn’t even see, with out the illumination, @ 50 yards. Worked awesome.

Inside. It is different story. Definitely auto gating in a short house etc.

I’m using Gen 3. Sentinels. FYI.

I have the 850 head. I was/am very impressed with it.
Definitely agree 300 yards
