obviously gen1 is the worst, but better than nothing. Any thoughts on this one? Looks lik eno batteries are needed unless you use the illuminator. how important is the illuminator on gen1?

on a gen 1 unit, the IR light is pretty important if there isnt much availible light. hell for $100 you might as well

If you're just out shopping for another cool toy to add to your collection then I wouldn't worry about the generation.

If it's for work then save your money until you can afford higher quality.

and i have a $10 off $100 coupon for SG

I really am hoping there are going to be some sturdy, under $200 Active IR LED rifle scopes within a few
years.

With Digital camera technology getting cheaper and better, and IR LED's getting better in
the consumer market all the time, I'd like to get something embedded in epoxy
that I could mount on a rail for cheap fun. I don't care if it's active IR, I don't plan on being in
combat, just putting some nighttime creatures in the crosshairs.

I learned the hard way. I bought russian goggles first. They were a novelty. Saved for 10 years and bought American goggles, PVS7's. They are great. Then I had the chance to upgrade to better "current" PVS7's and man, I can't tell you what a difference they are.

Buy Cheap, Buy twice.
