I've used this one quite a bit and its a really nice picture for a gen 1. Armasight is relatively newer, but have made a lot of advancements with traditional tubes. very small and lightweight and should give you a recognition range of about 100 yards with decent ambient conditions. IR is also individual from the power switch so you can turn it on and off as needed. Great unit for the money.
