If you were to use the ML2 with night vision, what would happen? Would the dot blind you? Would the dot be able to be seen by someone in front of you with Night vision?

I'm curious... Has anyone tried this?

You probably just can't see that spectrum of light through a night vision device.

I’ve never personally tried looking through an ML2 or 3 with NVG’s, but I do have experience with NVG’s. And based off my experience with NVG’s I’d say that the dot intensity with the non-NVG compatible Aimpoints is simply too intense.

I’d even venture to guess that the dot from a non-NVG compatible Aimpoint could cause permanent damage to the tube on a Night Vision Device.

That is what I was wondering / thinking... since the light is just standard red light. In the USMC, our PVS14 would magnify that and cause spotting on the NVG. I wonder if there is an add on filter that could be used to lessen the effect on NGVs.

I have used the M2 and older M series with NVG's and looked at optic on the daylight setting. The dot will show in the NV unit as a bright "bloom" and will look like someone is shining a bright breen spotlight at you. It has the potential of damaging the night vision device by burning a permanent spot where the dot hits it depending on the type of NV device and brightness of the dot. Never tried using a filter on an ML2 but my first thought is it would have to be dark enought ( tinted ) to reduce the visibility of the red dot to a level barely or not visible to the human eye, which would limit the users visibility. Who knows though, there are some pretty sharp folk on this site that may be able to come up with something.
