Another versatile night vision monocular offered by Armasight is the Sirius Gen 2+.

For those that prefer observing with both eyes open, the Armasight Dark Strider Gen 1+ Night Vision Binocular is the perfect solution. With a 5x magnification and Gen 1+ tube, the Dark Strider allows incredibly detailed observation on the darkest of nights. An excellent choice for any hunter, nature lover, fisherman or law enforcement agent.

Armasight has also developed a selection of night vision riflescopes for hunters and shooters needing to take that shot in little or no light. The Orion 4x Gen 1+ and Orion 5x Gen 1+ offer stellar night vision images in a compact, durable package. These units mount easily to almost any standard Weaver-style rail, and feature a detachable infrared illuminator and red on green reticle.
