Best 2nd Gen and 3rd Gen night vision riflescopes for coyote

Postby dgolay on Sun Nov 02, 2008 8:27 pm


Could you give me your picks on what Gen 2 and what Gen 3 night vision riflescopes you would use for the following?

Coyote hunting at night, dedicated gun (no scope swapping or daytime use required).

Would like a range of 75-250 yards.

Not sure what magnifications are available but something in the range of 3X, 4X, 5X or 6X would work I think. (maybe a fixed 4X?)

Will be mounted on a 22-250 bolt action Browning A-bolt or a Bushmaster AR 223.

Any other suggestions appreciated.


ps. I have purchased several Leupold riflescopes from you and also 3 Wind River binocs and all have worked out great! (and good prices too!)

Even though it's a dedicated night time gun, I would still use an ATN PS22.You can have the optical quality of your choice, your eye relief is not shortened, and you still have the capabilities of a daytime gun if desired. A good quality 4x scope would work, but a small variable would be even more ideal. These are great night vision units available in second or third generation. Adapters are available to fit scopes from about 25 to 58mm outside diameter.
