I've been getting the NVD itch somethin' awful lately as well, but i'm afraid I won't be able to stay true to My Gucci Gear standards when a PVS-14 is $2,500+. My situation leaves me looking at Gen I. devices at under $600.

In My price range I narrowed it down to a AN/PVS-2 refurb(Great big honking VN era starlight scope), A Yukon 1st gen, or the ATN Aries Palidin 390.

Doing some research, it appears that the ATN receives uptmost praise, and is regarded by many over on www.nightvisionforums.com as Thee best Gen I scope.

Quoted from NV mall:
ATN manufactures the largest line of night vision weapon sights or night vision scopes or just night scopes. The best Gen 1 scope on the marker. We set out design the best 1st Gen scope on the market and we succeeded. We started by improving the optical configurations which lowered the F-stop factor and increased optical resolution. By doing this, more light travels through the lens to the tube. More light and better resolution simply means brighter and sharper image. Then we added our precision "red on green" aiming system, easy push button operation, reticle brightness adjustment and our new detachable, most powerful in the industry 450mw Infrared Illuminator with dedicated windage and elevation adjustments. Our new Aries 390 Paladin is the best 1st. generation scope on the market and outperforms competition models like D-143, AN/PVS-2, DN-140M, Dipol 4100 and Yukon NVRS Gen1. The controls are ergonomically designed and can be used with ease in total darkness. The scope easily mounts onto any US standard 7/8? weaver rail. MK390 Paladin is an excellent tool for varmint hunters against rodents that cause farmers problems. Please, check your local game and fish regulations for legality of use.

THIS IS THE SCOPE! 1ST GENERATION DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER THEN THE ARIES 390 PALADIN. WE SET OUT TO DESIGN THE BEST 1ST GEN SCOPE ON THE MARKET AND WE SUCCEEDED. We started by improving the optical configurations which lowered the F-stop factor and increased optical resolution. By doing this, more light travels through the lens to the tube. More light and better resolution simply means brighter and sharper image.

That looks REALLY COOL, but it is a foot long. Not something I would leave on my carbine all the time. I wonder what the return to zero is with that mount? Or if it could be mounted in line with an Aimpint or Eotech when needed? Or with a visable laser that remains mounted and zeroed so that when the scope is added the laser would confirm the zero, and be used as the point of aim if the zero was off?

The new one made by Weaver looks fantastic. Only $250 and you get nearly Gen4 quality imaging (according to SWAT Magazine)
