ATN 7900 Crusader Night Scope
I have called predators for the better part of 20 years, but almost always in daylight. It wasn't until several years ago, that I started calling them at night. The cover of darkness adds another level to this already challenging sport. On the plus side, predators are abundant at night and readily come to the call, but the obvious downside is they are hard to see. I have experimented with various spotlight, and gun mounted lights, and while they do work well under most situation, you have to lug around a bunch of battery packs and the occasional coyote will spook from the telltale glare of an uncovered light. When night vision optics first entered the market at an affordable price, I rushed out and bought one with preconceived notions of how well it would work for predators. To my dismay this inexpensive, first generation night vision wasn't very good. It didn't gather enough light, the image was very grainy and it required constant focusing to be able to see anything at all. Author Mike Schoby shows a coyote taken using the ATN night scope. I resigned it to the back of my gear closet and kept night hunting with my tried and true spotlights - even with their inherent faults. In the back of my mind though I always wondered how a high-quality night scope would work for predators. Recently I had the opportunity to find out. I tested ATN's newest Generation III night vision riflescope, the 7900 Crusader, and the comparison to my previous scope was like night and day. I mounted the ATN on an Armalite M15A4(T) with a stainless bull barrel and flattop receiver. The gun is a sub minute-of-angle, tack-driver that makes a perfect testing platform for this scope as the integrated Weaver-style base on the ATN will slip right onto the Armalite with no need for a separate mount or any modification. The first thing I noticed about the ATN scope was how bright and crystal clear the optics were. At all distances, the optics could quickly and easily be focused for precise viewing. Next to light intensifying, clarity is the hallmark of a quality night scope. To use the scope in the day, the ATN night scope has an integrated scope cap with a pinhole in the center, which provides enough light for use in broad daylight without damaging the scope with overexposure. I set a target at 50 yards and fired a three-shot group. All three shots literally touched. Moving the target out to 100 yards, I fired another three-shot group that measured an inch - a great testament to the rifle as well as the scope. The scope is readily adjustable for windage and elevation. The scope's reticle is a red illuminated crosshair with vertical holdover points and is adjustable for intensity with an easy to adjust knob located on the right hand side of the scope. The windage and elevation dials are finger-adjustable, but were stiff enough on the test model I reviewed to necessitate a coin or a small screwdriver. Once adjusted however, the scope did not shift point-of-aim during any of the testing which equaled a hundred shots and many miles on foot and in a vehicle over rough roads. Taking The ATN Afield The first night I took the ATN afield, it was a dark, cloudy night with no moon or stars visible, so I was a bit skeptical as to how the night scope would perform, as they do need some ambient light to perform well. The first time I shouldered the gun and pressed my eye to the shock-absorbing rubber eyecup of the scope, the field in front of me was lit up like a football field on homecoming night. I could easily shoot a coyote out to 100 yards and could see one approaching past 200 yards. The picture was crystal-clear and precise aiming wouldn't be a problem as the red crosshairs showed up well on the green background. I made two stands, but no coyotes made an appearance. The next night I took the ATN out again; it was a typical Nebraska night that makes Montana want to reconsider their state slogan - Nebraska truly is Big Sky Country- the moon was full and every star was shining bright. I sat down, started calling and turned on the scope. When I first looked through it, the previous night's "great" performance paled by comparison. I could spot a coyote out to 500 yards and could easily shoot to 200 yards - more than far enough for any predator-calling situation. Turning the unit on is as easy as pushing a button. After two stands I picked up movement out past 300 yards. Within seconds, the movement grew into a clearly defined coyote running towards my position. By the time the coyote got to 100 yards he was in focus and crystal-clear. At 75 yards I barked once with my Zepp 1080 open reed call and the coyote stopped in his tracks. The red crosshairs hovered on the chest and I squeezed the trigger. A momentary muzzle flash was visible through the scope then was gone - in its wake, lay a dead coyote. In addition to making a great line of night vision Optics, ATN also pioneered IR illuminator devices for aiding in low and no-light situations. I tested the integrated IR illuminator on top of the Crusader and the results were likewise incredible. The illuminator acts like an invisible spot light out to roughly 150 yards, lighting up everything for crystal-clear aiming and precise shot placement. After testing the ATN 7900 Crusader, I was glad I didn't let my previous poor experience with night vision cloud my judgment. There is a big difference between professional night vision devices like the ATN line of products and devices that merely allow one to "kind of" see in the dark. The 7900 Crusader elevates the sport of night predator calling and puts the hunter and predator on even terms. You can bet I won't be heading afield this winter without an ATN on my rifle.

ATN Aries Paladin 390
The futures bright, the futures......green. Bought this scope for 100 yard fox control to use in conjunction with a .17 HMR. A bit dissapointed with the IR illuminator, (supplied). But was pleasantly suprised when I easily adapted an old Deben Tracer Max Lamp, (variable power) with IR filter, (about ВЈ20). This, I found just bathed everything in invisible light and was wowed by its clarity. To the extent that I now have it mounted on a moderated 22 250, as it will allow me to shoot at much further ranges than the .17 HMR. Paladin has a weaver mount on top of the scope, so other IR illuminators can be used. Initially, I had concerns about how it might deal with recoil; So far, so good. I try to avoid using it in the rain, as I could not find anywhere any info about its durability in these conditions, prior to buying it. Any Ideas? A little on the heavy side but otherwise very impressed. Just wish they could supply it without the IR illuminator, which now sits in box un-used. Might be cheeper. Though it would probably be fine on an air rifle.

ATN Viper 1 Night Vision Goggles
I purchased these goggles due to the other good recommendations I saw under the customer ratings for this unit. However, I did not get the same results. The most visibility I was lucky to get was 25 yards and the image was fuzzy and blurred. Yes, I focused it. Moonlight and starlight wasn’t a problem as there was enough light from those two sources that I could see fairly well short distances without a flashlight. The headgear was a pain to fit to your head and didn’t fit snug enough on my head to keep the goggles from moving up and down as I walked or even moved my head when stationary. This unit comes with an infrared light to see when there is less passive moonlight, however, it comes on and stays on when you turn the unit on and there doesn’t appear to be a switch to turn it off to save wear on the battery. Naturally, given what I have said, I would not recommend this product.

ATN Aries MK350 Guardian Generation 1 Weapon Sight
Ok I have a 300yds rifle range at the house with steel human silos every 100yds. On a semi clear, halfway illuminated night I could see the 200yd target easily. It wasn't the best resolution at that range, but it was good enough to id what it was. Now the racoons have been raiding my feeder and 6 of them met their demise with 6 shots with this mounted on a 7mm-08. The trick is you have to use the illuminator, looking down a dark sendero with tree cover it is hard to see what is going on, but at 75yds you can see easily exactly what is there. It isn't the easiest thing in the world to get sighted in, but it works. I mounted it on a detachable riser and can swithc it out with my daytime scope easily and it doesn't change zero. But I think you might have issues with it if you used the provided mount and took it on and off constantly. I wanted to avoid that issue. I am impressed with what I found, I really wasn't expecting much from a Gen 1 unit and it was the first purchase in awhile that I have found to be better than advertised. Reviews are really lacking on night vision and so I felt I needed to put in my two cents. I am sure it isn't the greatest in the world, but for what it costs it is perfectly capable of you being able to make shots to 200yds and I am curious as to how well it works with a full moon and clear night. This week the hogs are going to be targeted with it since they like to show up at 1am. I do not think you will be disappointed in what arrives if you purchase this. Oh and by the way it has a small zippered compartment on the front that has the batteries, warranty card, wrench, and allen wrench in it. I highly suggest you buy a weaver railed full length base for the rifle you want to mount it on and a couple detachable risers to make swapping it out easier.

ATN Night Cougar
Thanks to its compact, comfortable design, the Cougar is as cuddly as a kitten. The optics are excellent too — objects popped out of the dark like monsters on a carnival ride. Like the LN-PB3 from Luna, these use a combination of first generation night vision tech and an IR bulb. Light passes into a tube, where photons are converted to electrons, amplified, and then re-converted into green-hued visible light. The light gathering was excellent, allowing us to see well in near-total darkness outdoors. Meanwhile, in the pitch black of our basement, the IR illuminator was the best of the bunch, painting distant objects in a revealing glow. We also appreciated the peripheral vision these goggles afforded. While it was far from a true view of the horizon, the Night Cougar's didn't leave us feeling boxed in and peering through a tunnel either. While there was some blurring around the edges (also known as geometric distortion, a commonplace attribute of first-gen night vision) it was barely noticeable, and we preferred these overall for scanning side-to-side. While the fixed zoom means you won't be reeling in faraway views, because there's no need to adjust from longshots to closeups, these were easiest to use to monitor objects at varying distances. They do, however, offer adjustments to let you get a crisp picture — smooth focusing rings with individual adjustments for each eyepiece made adjusting to our misfit vision a snap. Finally, we adored the headgear mount that attaches to the peepers for hands-free use. It allows you to keep the Cougars in place in front of your eyes, or flip them up 90 degrees and out of the way if you need to creep about. Not only does it give you a break from gripping the night vision specs to your mug, it also lets you stay on the move while holding stuff — like an AK-47. Or that kitten. WIRED Exceptionally bright. Super lightweight — a mere 10 ounces. Wide-angle vision great for spotting flank attacks. TIRED So much for covert ops: IR light announces your presence like a butler. Sorry, snipers, no zoom.

ATN Silver Eye Mini-Monocular
I bought the mini-monocular as part of an overall project to lighten the load in my shift toward ultralight backpacking. For that specific use this item is ideal. (Using regular binoculars is definitely a better choice for all-around use, where more weight and bulk don't matter.) The Silver Eye has good optics, and after a bit of practice, blocking one eye with the back of a hand while viewing through the other is comfortable. The unit is so small and light, it resides full-time in by belt pack, so it is always there during a hike.

ATN Night Scout Binocular
These night vision binoculars (NVB) may look like your conventional binoculars that you take to the ballgame, but they're a different thing altogether. Regular (daytime) binos are intended to allow the user to view things at a long distance. NV binos are intended to allow the user to view things in the dark, but no far away. With regular binos, the viewer actually sees through the instrument when looking at a distant object. With NV devices, what you see is a green TV-like image that's projected onto the eyepiece. The viewer doesn't see though the NVB at all. Rather, the NVB takes in low levels of light and amplifies that light thousands of times through an intensifier tube thnt projects the green image the viewer sees in the eyepiece. So, the tube is the single most important factor in the quality of a night vision device. This particular model from ATN, the Night Scout, uses a pair of 1st generation NV tubes. Please see my entry below for more info on night vision "generations". As a first generation device, the Night Scout is rather limited in its night-time performance, but it has the important advantage of letting the viewer use both eyes, allowing much improved depth perception and lowering the fatigue factor involved in looking through a monocular NVD for more than a few minutes. To their credit, ATN uses only high quality Russian made tubes in this model. The edge distortion (fisheye effect) that's so evident in many 1st gen units is minimal in the Night Scout. To be effective in truly dark environments, it relies on the integral infrared (IR) light. IR is invisible to the naked eye, but it shows up clearly in NV scopes. With the IR illumination the Night Scout gives a nicely detailed image of whatever's within about 20-50 yards in the dark. On a moonlit night, it will be able to see clearly at two or three times that distance, sometimes even without the IR. The image quality is quite good for a 1st gen scope, too. The 5x magnification enlarges distant objects within its field of view nicely. The trade off is that anything under 20 feet away won't come into focus. The Scout itself is a big, hefty unit, weighing over three pounds and requiring two hands to use it. It has "smart" technology, which is a proximity sensor that automatically turns the binos on when they're brought into viewing position and turns them off when they're lowered. This saves the batteries and is a good feature, since the batteries are a pair of 3 volt CR123 camera cells and are expensive.

ATN Mars4x-2 Gen 2
I have been using night vision rifle scopes for years, and the Mars4x unit far exceeds the performance of any scope I have ever used. The clarity and accuracy of this scope exceeded all of my expectations. I have this unit sitting on top of a DPMS LR308, and I am able to put 5 shots inside of a nickel size circle at 100 yards on a dark night without using the illuminator. This is such a powerful scope that the illuminator washes out the screen image for anything under 100 yards. The illuminator becomes an effective tool for shots from 100 yards to 250 yards. The scope is a little heavy, but still managable. If you use a flashhider on your rifle muzzle, the scope will remain turned on for follow up shots. If you do not use a flashhider, the internal brightness protecter will turn the scope off because of the brightness of the muzzle flash. The weight of the scope helps to reduce recoil, so the combination of the flashhider and scope weight work together for quick targeting recovery and follow up shots. This scope is top of the line and performs flawlessly. If your livelihood, or your life, depends on the performance of your night vision equipment, then this is a scope you may depend on. It is pricey, but there is a reason for the price. You get what you pay for in performance, clarity, dependability and accuracy.

ATN Viper Goggles
I have had a month or so to test this so I could give a review. This little item is remarkable. Clarity is superb. Under normal night time conditions of no moon to full moon I am able to see 75 yards easily. The illuminator is not worth having( single led), it seems to light up maybe 10-20 yards ahead of you. The view has 2 or 3 black dots in the center of the screen and fish eye effect on the perimeter of the view(both normal for cheap night vision). What amazed me was turning the devise on and then off instantly, the devise had the ability to amplify light a good 10-15 minutes with the units power off. In real world circumstances I could clearly make out deer at 200 yards. With the aid of a mini flashlight with lens cove I can clearly see items out to 400 yards.

ATN MO4-1 Monocular
This is a true "2nd Generation" night vision (NV) device. Please see my entry below regarding generations of night vision equipment. The MO4-2 is a spotting scope (monocular) that amplifies existing light in dark conditions, allowing the user to see. The scope measures 7.5 inches long, 2.5 in wide, and 3 in tall. It weighs in at a little over a pound and uses a pair of 123 three volt camera batteries. It is both impact and water resistant, to a point. The hand strap on the right side of the scope makes gripping it easy and it places the hand in position to easily reach the three control buttons (on/off, IR light, proximity sensor). It offers 5x magnification. The built-in IR light is sufficient for illuminating small areas out to about 30-40 yards or so. Beyond that, the beam is too dispersed. The IR is most useful for checking out unlit interior spaces, which tend to be much darker than outdoors. Outside, the 2nd Gen intensifier tube works very well under all but the most challenging conditions. The field of view is flat, with no geometric distortion as seen in 1st Gen scopes. The image is considerably brighter than 1st Gen, also. The proximity sensor is a handy battery saving device that senses when the scope is raised to viewing position and turns it on automatically. When the scope is lowered the sensor turns it off. Very nice feature, as the batteries for this scope are expensive (about $15/pair). This scope is much more capable than the 1st Gen gear, but is accordingly more expensive. If your NV needs call for better performance than 1st Gen can offer, this is a good candidate. Personally, I use it for astronomy and it excels in that role.

Good value Gen 2+ NV scope
This is my 2nd Gen II+ NV scope. It comes with a 3x lens and I paid $999.00 for mine. You can buy a picatinny adapter and 1x lens combo from ATN or some vendors (make sure you get the combo and not just the adapter for that price from vendors) for use with optics on rifles. I found this scope to be better than my Night Optics Gen II+ D-300M-2ST I had purchased some months previous for $1500.00 that comes with a 1x lens. The price of the ATN with the mount 2 lenses was more than $300 less than the Night Optics scope and additional picatinny rail mount with just 1 lens. On both models, there is an IR emitter that is fine for casual viewing of things a very short distances (maybe 20 yards, max) and that don't work well when mounted on a rifle. As a value for function, I would give the ATN 5 stars. The fit of the components to the heavy duty polymer housing wasn't perfect, but does not appear to negatively affect the function of the scope in any way. If I need another comparable scope, I would buy another ATN Night Spirit. FYI, a buddy purchased a similar Gen III version from ATN and paid close to $3000 for his scope.

ATN Night Spirit-2 Gen 2+ Night Vision Multi Purpose System
This is my 2nd Gen II+ NV scope. It comes with a 3x lens and I paid $999.00 for mine. You can buy a picatinny adapter and 1x lens combo from ATN or some vendors (make sure you get the combo and not just the adapter for that price from vendors) for use with optics on rifles. I found this scope to be better than my Night Optics Gen II+ D-300M-2ST I had purchased some months previous for $1500.00 that comes with a 1x lens. The price of the ATN with the mount 2 lenses was more than $300 less than the Night Optics scope and additional picatinny rail mount with just 1 lens. On both models, there is an IR emitter that is fine for casual viewing of things a very short distances (maybe 20 yards, max) and that don't work well when mounted on a rifle. As a value for function, I would give the ATN 5 stars. The fit of the components to the heavy duty polymer housing wasn't perfect, but does not appear to negatively affect the function of the scope in any way. If I need another comparable scope, I would buy another ATN Night Spirit. FYI, a buddy purchased a similar Gen III version from ATN and paid close to $3000 for his scope.

ATN Rifle Scopes
For many years the American Technologies Network Corporation (ATN) has been providing the consumer with state of the art night vision optics. ATN has earned a reputation for the highest quality products coupled with the best value (price). Some people could compare a fine optical unit to a top-notch Swiss watch, or musical instrument where all of the parts are well thought out and work as one well-tuned masterpiece. The following are facts and details on what makes their products standout among the fray, and their philosophy to help you understand how a relatively new company could become a major player in this ever abundant optical marketplace. In order to obtain the optimum performance of the image intensifier tube they construct their own power supplies. This is the place where the latest electronics transform into a myriad of features and outstanding reliability. Their main attention to detail is especially apparent when it comes down to the construction. Materials range from titanium, aircraft quality aluminum alloys to hi-impact plastic composites. 1/8 MOA adjustments on their weapon scopes is an excellent example of what their CNC machines are capable of. They finish their projects with o-rings, nitrogen purging and a hard exterior powder coating. This complex process makes their optics virtually immune to all weather conditions. ATN has established itself as the world leader of night vision riflescopes. However, this wasn’t enough for the company as they transferred some of their creative night vision designs into their popular daytime scopes. Because of the lay-out of night vision rifle scopes, the reticles are 14 times smaller and 10 times more precise then daytime scopes. They have used the exact same innovative “push and pull” mechanism with silicone padding that is in their night vision devices for the Professional series scopes. This created windage and elevation adjustments that are 10,000 % more reliable than other scopes with click adjustments of 1/8″ MOA at 100 yards. One of their most popular rifle scopes is the ATN 5X33L Day Time Rifle Scope. Proshield and Everlight lens coatings were developed in order to help prevent glare and scratches, while providing the hunter with a sharp image in both bright and low light conditions. User friendly by design, the ATN Professional 5X33L is simple to use while sporting some of the most advanced features available today. Accuracy was their number one priority when they created the ATN Professional. Featuring 1/8 M.O.A. windage and elevation click adjustments, the ATN Professional offers twice the precision of scopes with M.O.A. adjustments. Combine their precision windage and elevation adjustments with a 500 yard range finder and a bullet drop compensator and you now have a scope that will satisfy even the most demanding Marksman. You will never lose sight of your crosshairs due to darkness while using the ATN Professional. Their illuminated reticle has a 10 position rheostat. The intensity of the reticle can be adjusted to your specific lighting conditions. Two revolutionary new lens coatings add even more value to this feature packed scope. Every scope in their portfolio offers all the quality a hunter needs. ATN Professional 5×33L Illuminated Reticle Rifle Scope ATN Professional 5×33L Illuminated Reticle Rifle Scope by American Technologies Network is simply one of the best Illuminated Reticle Riflescopes on the market. User friendly by design, the AMTc Professional 5×33L is simple to use while sporting some of the most advanced features available today. Accuracy was their number one priority when designing the AMTc Professional. Featuring 1/8 M.O.A. windage and elevation click adjustments, the AMTc Professional offers twice the precision of scopes with M.O.A. adjustments. ATN Riflescope Professional 5×33LU The 5×33L (5×33LU) has an Electronic reticle. There are 10 degrees of illumination. The rheostat is the knob located at the back of the scope. It is labeled with numbers 0 through 10. When the rheostat is set at 0 you will see a black etched reticle. The rangefinder reticle in 5×33L (5×33LU) was designed to assist you in determining the range of your target. These distances are based on a 3′ target, if a 3′ target fits between the numbered baseline (the five short horizontal lines) and the post of the reticle above the baseline determines your distance. If a 3′ target fits between the horizontal post of the reticle and 2 the target is 200 yards away. ATN Riflescope Professional 4-12×60LU Primarily designed for the big game hunter,the ATN Riflescope Professional 4-12×60LU Rifle scope doubles as a highly effective varmint scope. A large 60 mm objective lens provides you with one of the brightest scopes made. The interchangeable cams for the BDC lets you go after Big game with rifles using .300 Win Mag or 7 mm Magnums cartridges, as well as varmint rifles with .223 or.270 caliber’s. 500-Yard Bullet drop compensator with interchangeable cams. 6 Interchangeable cams included (.223,.308,30-.06, .270,7 mm Mag,.300 Win Mag.) 30 mm rings included.

ATN MK350 Guardian Gen 1
This includes the detachable IR illuminator and batteries for this and the scope. I have owned the MK350 for one month and have hunted coyotes with it three times and trialed it numerous times at night in the back yard. I did use the scope with IR illuminator in my basement with all lighting off and could make out detail on most of the items laying around. There are seperate power switches on the scope for unit power and also reticle power, which saves battery life when using just for viewing. I sighted in the rifle (.243) during the day with the lens cover on and was able to get a nice grouping. With the snow on the ground I have not had to use the IR illuminator while hunting as the image quality is amazing without it. I set up a fox and rabbit decoy in a field at 50 yards and was able to make out all the details and this was without using the IR illuminator. I am now going to buy a seperate NV monocular as holding the rifle to search the horizon gets tiring. When I purchased this there were no reviews posted so I took a chance based on the low price and Amazon's return policy. The only con's I can come up with is the weight of the scope on the rifle when holding it for long periods. Once the snow is gone and I need to hunt using the IR illuminator my opinions might change...but I doubt it.

ATN Night Leopard
The ATN Night Leopard is the best consumption first generation monocular I ever tested. On a half of a moon or less, you can clearly see everything without effort. The picture is bright, clear and almost flat. If have a minimun of light, this device excuse the IR illumination. It performs so good as it looks. In my opinion it needs a built in long range IR illuminator for very low light conditions as it's brother Night Jaguar. You'll never be disappointted with this device.

ATN MK350 Guardian Gen 1+
Received the ATN MK350 in very good condition, well packaged without a lot of extra junk like peanuts and bubble wrap. Unit was supplied with batteries (ATN branded CR123, 2 each), detachable IR illuminator, Allen wrench, tab-wrench (for adjusting the positioning of the IR illuminator), Cordura carrying case w/shoulder strap, and manuals/registration card (no CD instructions, only paper version). There is a screw missing from the panel next to the reticule brightness adjustment knob and the main focus ring feels like it has grit or sand in it. Unless someone reads this and takes their own initiative to remedy these things, I intend to repair/ignore them. The diopter adjustment is smooth without any of this gritty feeling. The rail mount is very solid and serves quite well as a quick removal if you are using it on a rail-equipped weapon. All of the rail hardware is metal and has a very nice fit and finish. It does not scratch or deform the rail on my AR when attaching or removing the scope. There is a re-positionable insert in the rail system for indexing to the "slot" you want to use (should your rail have single or staggered slots). All the user adjustments, battery compartments and the front lens are covered and those covers are tethered to the body of the scope. The eye-relief cup is deep and serves well to keep fingers and stuff away from the rear lens. First impression of the performance was made indoors, comparing to a much inferior "toy" type NV hand-held. Brightness... not so great compared to the "toy", however with the supplied illuminator this becomes a no-problem with image quality making-up for this perception "big time". The image quality is good enough to read a non-illuminated LCD digital clock from 40 feet away (1/2" tall display size on the clock). The cross-hair is adjustable and can be made bright enough to be seen even when the scope is in full saturation, that is "blinded" to the point where the image tube is nothing but a green blob. The lowest setting is just a bit too bright in zero-light conditions and you have to be careful not to look in there after your eye has adjusted to darkness. I keep the cross hair turned-off unless I want it. I bought this scope as a "cross over" device, intending to use it for both hunting and recreational viewing. It will serve -very- well for the hunting part, however I will most likely carry the "toy" around before using the MK350, as the un-assisted image brightness is actually not much better than my own vision... after I have had time to adjust to the light level. The MK350 used as a weapon sight more than compensates for the light-loss of the optics, and with the addition of the illuminator becomes a very good "serious use" tool. In a week I will add to this review... stay tuned! (the "toy" I have is the NEWCON OPTIK SGT-150P StarGate Night Vision Scope, available from Amazon.)

ATN NZT-1 Monocular
The scope is basic but works superbly, I have two units, one brand new and another that the previous user pointed at the sun and killed for parts. The light tube is of very high quality and not realized to it's full potential in this unit, it's crisp, clear and only the eyepiece lets it down. It's zoomed at almost 3x and only half the effective tube area is actually used, I would like to get another, place a 0x magnification lens and a different eyepiece. (I have seen one with a much larger lens and without the "guides" over the tubes light collecting part) The tube seems much more receptive to red wavelengths (red light) than green or blue and using a high bright red LED gives fantastic results. Overall for the price, it can't be beat. The powerswitch only needs pressing for a short time (1-2 seconds) and is a good design. The IR illumination switch is horrible and this must be moodified.

ATN J169W Tactical Flashlight Weapon Mountable
Overall i want to say this is very well constructed. The mount system is solid and very easy to tighten/remove. The Halogen bulb in it is to say the least blinding. The only issue i have had with it is that the Remote Activation piece is only for temporary light. You must press and hold it for light and it will not stay lit after you release. This is how the light was designed as far as i can tell you cannot buy a separate attachment for the light to make it a press button so that it will stay lit. Overall this is a very good piece of gear.

This monocular is tiny! It's so convenient you can take it everywhere, use it for anything. I am visually disabled and use it for everything: reading street signs, read the blackboard, use it in shows, etc. The quality, however, is not the best. The image you get is comparable to what you get with a 6x magnification monocular. Good if you do not need more detail. Otherwise, consider a bigger monocular with higher magnification.

ATN MK350 Night Vision Scope
Nicely packaged and easy to install. I sighted the scope in on an AR-15 A2. I was pleased with the easy to use instructions. Not really knowing what to expect, I waited per the instructions for the sun to set, then began sighting the scope. When it became completely dark, I did have a hard time seeing the target. However, the illuminator that mounts on the scope worked exceptionally well. I have not hunted with it yet, but I am more than pleased with its visual performance, its aesthetic appearance, and dimming red cross-hairs. I expect to have many years of night hunting with the MK350.

ATN Aries MK440 Rifle Scope 4.5x Mag 2nd Gen
This is my second Night Vision scope. My first unit was a 1st Gen Russian made with a large catadioptric lens and it always gave a very clear and bright sight picture without the IR illuminator, (and still does after 10 years). This ATN MK440 unit supposedly has a Gen 2+ 25mm american-made optic tube. It was not very bright without the IR illuminator and there was a lot of distortion in the sight picture anywhere away from the center of the image. I have no idea why this is, but I don't like it and I would not use this scope on my rifle. The fact that the IR illuminator comes on by default everytime the unit is powered on doesn't appeal to me either. If another shooter is out in the dark with you, the IR illuminator will look like a spotlight attracting attention to you. Honestly, I wanted to like this scope, but I won't settle for less than decent performance from any of my equipment. This thing is going back to ATN and I will see if they have something without the drawbacks.

ATN PhantomIR Thermal Vision
Three years ago, I met her. She had long beautiful blonde hair and her blue eyes were as deep as sapphire stones. However, our relationship was doomed from the start. Her work schedule never exactly met up with my guild to make time for each other. It was then I discovered the ATN PhantomIR Thermal Vision Binocular. These things had several great qualities, being able to see anything alive at anytime in its glorious red or green glow is perfect. Who needs these for clever CIA missions to murder terrorists? For these weren't instruments aiding the death of high powered men of evil, but embodiments of love. Long I remembered nights staying up watching her smooth warm body roll around in her sheets. Many a night I spent watching her wash away the frustrations of her life in her shower, each time, I was only three high powered lenses away. But one day, it all changed. She was coming back from work, and I could see her red glow climb up the stairs to her apartment carrying groceries. When she reached the fifth floor, the floor on which she lived, she spilled one of her grocery bags. Her neighbor came out of his door, and began helping her. After carrying her bag inside her apartment, I noticed she closed the door, and he never left. At first they were talking harmlessly, I had no problem watching this bond of platonic neighborly love. Then something happened. I still see his red silhouette plastered against hers... The tears never stopped. His warm red had turned to a fiery red where his two legs met, and I could see him grow in a red that could only be matched by the fires of hell. Suddenly she started glowing dark red and the hugged and embraced. The binoculars felt my pain and suddenly began typing words on the screens. It told me to go to her, tell her that we could work it out. Using it's built in magnetic compass, I ran out of my apartment and carried the binoculars with me. The compass pointing south was a guidance in a very dark and grim street, much like Pocahontas I felt the colors of the wind. Oh I would have been lost without it. As I ran through the lobby and up the stairs, those horrible stairs never ended, I cried harder and harder. I got to her apartment and used my binoculars to scan the apartment for them. I began banging on the door as hard as I could until her neighbor opened the door gripping a baseball bat. I explained that she was my girlfriend, and he laughed in my face. It was then the binoculars came to life. They transformed into a most magical being, bearded at all. With a mighty finger it blasted him into oblivion. Actually, it didn't. It would be ridiculous for binoculars to do that, but I wish it did; to this day I wish it did. Instead, she denied knowing who I was (for her and my protection of course) and he came out swinging his bat hard and I spent the next three months eating food through a tube (AWESOME!). Today I still see my love after we made up through our new guidance counselor. He has made me sign a document that states that if I come within 200 feet of the one I hold true in my heart, I would be breaking the magical bond of our intimacy and would be confined to a cell of all the other people who are incapable of keeping their agreements. Until then, I still send my love her way through my PhantomIR Thermal Vision Binocular. Thank you ATN for keeping my Relationship alive! And if it weren't for it's limited lifetime warranty, I always feel safe and secure that my binoculars will live and grow with me, just like my love.

We did notice that it gives slight tunnel vision, and he does regularly bump into walls, but as he's only 2 1/2 that is to be expected! These are great, I think everyone should have a pair, and then no one needs to be afraid of the dark! And we save on energy because we don't need lights (as often) mind you, you go through a lot of batteries!!!

ATN Aries MK350 2.5x41 Night Vision Riflescope
I bought this night vision rifle scope for my son who is just a beginner and learning the basics of hunting with me. It's small and lightweight which is perfect for him, yet the image is clear and bright even when were out at night hunting. Most important the price was exceptional for all the added features that it has.I particularly like that it's waterproof and very durable. The red on green recticle system was the most helpful feature for him when viewing through the scope.

ATN Ultra Sight Reflex Sight
I used the 2 MOA dot only. I was hitting a paper Groundhog target in the chest at 100 yards (from the bench). Hit a lot of ten ringers on "shoot and see" targets as well. Also aimed at the top of a 9" shoot and see target at 200 yards and was hitting that. No ten ringers at 200 yards, but thats OK. I have the sight zeroed at 100 yards. I put about 150 rounds through it so far, and it seems to handle the recoil well. The sight is very clear and easy to use. I may get another for my cx4 carbine because I can aquire the target much faster than using a 30mm tube type red dot. It does need to come with a lens cover, as others have said. Thats my only complaint.

ATN Spartan 410
I have tried the Spartan 410 and can a test to the use of your Spartan 410.I am an Old farmer from Michigan and the Varmints were destroying my Corn crops so this year I bought the 410 to protect as much as I could I mounted it on a 22 mag. The first weeks of hunting were great the critters never knew what hit them they even looked a bit amazed that I could see them in total darkness then I had a little problem with the zero on the scope so I called ATN and was told to send it in I informed ATN of my problem and the corn is a crop that is only on a few weeks at best. Mr. Budoula got involved and WOW ATN sure stands behind there scopes they got it out fast and saved a lot of my crops and for this I say Thank You. Now the use of the Spartan 410. This is a heck of a scope you can see from 10' feet to well over 100 yards and with the focusing ring you could adjust the distance reel easy. What amazes this old farmer is the fact you can read Print in the total black of night with the 410 and I am not so sure you might be able to put a camera in front of the scope and take pictures it's that clear. If it's seeing in the cold black of night that you need to do and if you want to put a red cross hair on it The Spartan 410 is the best way to do it. Also I must say a bit about the little Ir. Light that is on the top of the 410 it might be little but I could see over 100 yards and the best thing the beam could be adjusted up or down. All and All this is a great scope package and ATN will bend over backwards to help you.

ATN Ultrasight
This replaces my vintage red-dot pro-point sight. The ATN ultra sight is quite possibly the best heads-up sight made. The 4 different reticles are very effective as dimensions are given in MOA's. This sight has found a permanent home on my S&W model 686 Plus. I am an old guy but with this sight I can shoot at 25 yds. as accurately as shooting at 12 yds with the old pro-point. I will be ordering another for my new S&W Model 629 Stealth Hunter.

ATN Viper Goggle
I have had a month or so to test this so I could give a review. This little item is remarkable. Clarity is superb. Under normal night time conditions of no moon to full moon I am able to see 75 yards easily. The illuminator is not worth having( single led), it seems to light up maybe 10-20 yards ahead of you. The view has 2 or 3 black dots in the center of the screen and fish eye effect on the perimeter of the view(both normal for cheap night vision). What amazed me was turning the devise on and then off instantly, the devise had the ability to amplify light a good 10-15 minutes with the units power off. In real world circumstances I could clearly make out deer at 200 yards. With the aid of a mini flashlight with lens cove I can clearly see items out to 400 yards.

MO4-2 Second Generation
The MO4-2 is a spotting scope (monocular) that amplifies existing light in dark conditions, allowing the user to see. The scope measures 7.5 inches long, 2.5 in wide, and 3 in tall. It weighs in at a little over a pound and uses a pair of 123 three volt camera batteries. It is both impact and water resistant, to a point. The hand strap on the right side of the scope makes gripping it easy and it places the hand in position to easily reach the three control buttons (on/off, IR light, proximity sensor). It offers 5x magnification. The built-in IR light is sufficient for illuminating small areas out to about 30-40 yards or so. Beyond that, the beam is too dispersed. The IR is most useful for checking out unlit interior spaces, which tend to be much darker than outdoors. Outside, the 2nd Gen intensifier tube works very well under all but the most challenging conditions. The field of view is flat, with no geometric distortion as seen in 1st Gen scopes. The image is considerably brighter than 1st Gen, also. The proximity sensor is a handy battery saving device that senses when the scope is raised to viewing position and turns it on automatically. When the scope is lowered the sensor turns it off. Very nice feature, as the batteries for this scope are expensive (about $15/pair). This scope is much more capable than the 1st Gen gear, but is accordingly more expensive. If your NV needs call for better performance than 1st Gen can offer, this is a good candidate. Personally, I use it for astronomy and it excels in that role.

ATN MK350 Guardian Gen 1+ 2.5x Maginification Night Vision Rifle Scope
This includes the detachable IR illuminator and batteries for this and the scope. I have owned the MK350 for one month and have hunted coyotes with it three times and trialed it numerous times at night in the back yard. I did use the scope with IR illuminator in my basement with all lighting off and could make out detail on most of the items laying around. There are seperate power switches on the scope for unit power and also reticle power, which saves battery life when using just for viewing. I sighted in the rifle (.243) during the day with the lens cover on and was able to get a nice grouping. With the snow on the ground I have not had to use the IR illuminator while hunting as the image quality is amazing without it. I set up a fox and rabbit decoy in a field at 50 yards and was able to make out all the details and this was without using the IR illuminator. I am now going to buy a seperate NV monocular as holding the rifle to search the horizon gets tiring. When I purchased this there were no reviews posted so I took a chance based on the low price and Amazon's return policy. The only con's I can come up with is the weight of the scope on the rifle when holding it for long periods. Once the snow is gone and I need to hunt using the IR illuminator my opinions might change...but I doubt it.

ATN MK350 Guardian
Right out of the box, this appears to be a well-constructed NVRS. This was a replacement for a Gen II+ NVRS that went no joy after only one year (bad rheostat for intensifier). This item meets what I had in my Gen II+. The reticle is sharp and it 'boxed' accurately at 100m. While 200m appears to be its maximum useful range, it is adequate for a 5.56mm rifle's reach. The scope is nicely packaged and the instructions appear O-1 proof. Even Barney Fife would be hard pressed to insert batteries with the wrong polarity. The IR illuminator works well. Unlike many of the other NVRS available, the IR illuminator has full adjustment capabilities. The mount is solid and highly adjustable. The retention straps on the day filter, battery cover, and reticle adjustment turrets are VERY much appreciated. The case leaves a bit to be desired. It is like a cheap bino case or a 1970s Israeli Uzi magazine case. But for less than $400 for the whole megillah, the case is the least weak part of the chain with this item. LEOs and mil-pers familiar with NVRS of 5-10 years ago will be awed by the capabilities of this item. If I was handed this item for field eval without knowing its origin, I would give it high marks. Nice job ATN. If the NVRS here is as durable as it was at first light impressions, you have excelled in providing low-cost NVRS to the entry market.

Lifesavers! (ATN PhantomIR)
Have you ever noticed the biggest, most egregious problem of modern life is that all houses/apartments/ living spaces make it difficult, if not downright dangerous to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night? Why are light switches located INSIDE the room that you're about to walk into, instead of outside the doorway? I suppose that rewiring every living space on planet earth to fix this inherent flaw is unrealistic. Well, thankfully, that problem has now been solved! Since I bought my ATN Phantom IR Thermal Vision Binocular, I have seen the light (literally)! This is the greatest product ever conceived, developed, invented, & produced! My shins thank me every single day (Ok, not literally, my shins do not have tiny mouths, that would be seriously creepy!) Thanks to this incredible product, I now breeze through the darkest of dark nights with ease! If you take the time to think about it, $20,299.00 is a small price to pay for peace of mind. Never again will my shins be bruised and bloodied because of blind nocturnal blunders! Never again will my wife and I have to change the swampy, pee-darkened and drenched sheets out of fear of obstacle course induced injury! Using the toilet in the darkest hours of night shall never again resemble an episode of Ninja Warrior! Thank you. ATN Phantom! My quality of life has been improved forever due to your amazing and affordable miracle of a product!
