Has anyone has any expeience with these?
They have been discontuined and are selling for around $700. Sounds like a great price for a gen 2 scope. Just wondering how the picture quality is. I'm wanting it for varmit hunting.

I owned one for about 2 months before selling it. Picture quality was good but the IR illuminator was very concetrated... in other words it had 'spot light' illumination instead of the whole visible FOV picture being illuminated. sure you could see the whole FOV but the very center much brighter than the outside FOV. I sold it and will prolly use a head mount NV goggles with the NV option on my eotech. It was awefully big too...

I had one for as long as it took me to trade it. I thought it sucked, but maybe it was just a bad IR illuminator. Very heavy and glad I didn't pay money for it. Sold the .45 I traded for it a couple weeks after just to distance myself from the scope as much as possible. Just my 2 cents. FYI I only had about $400 in it, and had trouble getting that much out of it in trade.
