hey everyone.

looking to get into some night vision scopes.

are there any decent options in the $500-$1000 range that also function well as a daytime scope?

I'm not looking for anything special, just something to mess around with.

thanks

Nothing that is new with a warranty in that price range that won't be a waste of your hard earned money. Possibly a used Gen 2 unit but it will not function as a daytime scope. They have digital units and in my opinion they are better then Gen 1 but they are nothing to write home about either.

Elcan makes a digital scope and I have seen some others but they are priced outside your range. Only thing that will work as a daytime scope is pretty much very expensive or cheap digital night vision. I would continue to save until you can get something of decent quality. Hate to see you toss $1000 around on something that will perform subpar.

If I had all the money back I wasted trying to do night vision on the cheap I could equip the whole family in top of the line PVS-14's. Take that 1k and put it in a savings account and add to it. Then you can buy it right the first time !
