Night vision rookie
I am a rookie to NV technology and have a AR 15 223-556 rock river with a eotech 512 scope and a 3x magnifier ,I have never used or seen NV technology.i would like to have a day and night NV technology to be used with my eotech 512,I would use NV for fun and possible hunting up to 200 yds. I want to learn this technology and purchase the best NV possible,there is a budget but it depends on what options there are with my eotech.i live in the Dallas ftworth tx and would like to get my hands on the scopes if possible.
Immediately the OPMOD PVS-14 comes to mind. A PVS14 is designed for that exact use. you can use it on a helmet with that optic setup or mount it on the rifle. The OPMOD PVS14 uses a Gen 3 pinnacle tube, one of the best intensifier tubes on the market. It's a true spec PVS14, so you can use any Mil spec mounts with its as well. This unit should allow you to see and shot up to and around the 300 yards mark. We have this listed for under $2900. You never see a PVS14 for that price let alone a Pinnacle tube PVS14. It would be the perfect match for you. If you read the forums or talk to people with NV units, they'll tell you you may start with a gen 1 or gen 2, but you will quickly trade up to a Gen 3. Its definitely worth the investment.
