I have been looking a little into night vision scopes. . . . so dang expensive!

I would like someone to point me in a direction to look for an inexpensive model 2-300 bucks???that I will be able to mount atop my A2.

I imagine 100 yards is plenty, will 1st gen work for something like that?

Does it have to have an IR light with it? Should come already attached correct?

Any info on pricing and brands to look into or avoid would be most appreciated.

My 30 day search turned up two threads which I read.

Thanks guys.

I believe the minimum you want is Gen II. There are no cheap/good NV set-ups.

GO check out www.opticsHQ.com

Don't waste your money unless you will buy Gen II or Gen III. Honestly, it's not worth getting unless you take the plunge and spend close to three grand.

You might want to try asking your question in the night vision form.
