Pulsar Recon 550 Digital Night Vision Scope 4x50mm Product Info

Pulsar 4x50mm Recon 550 Digital Night Vision Scope 78021 is a durable digital Night Vision scope from Pulsar featuring a built-in infrared illuminator. The Recon 550 is outfitted with a five-lens eyepiece to minimize distortion on the edges of the field of view and increase sharpness and contrast of the image. The soft rubber eyecup conceals the light emission from the Pulsar Night Vision tube, permitting the user of the digital night vision scope to remain in darkness. The built-in infrared light takes care of close-range illumination when natural lighting is not enough; for different lighting needs, just mount accessories as required. The Pulsar Recon Night Vision Scope is equipped with a mount fitting combining a 1/4" tripod mounting socket and a 7/8" Weaver scope mount rail, for attaching a wide variety of lights.

The Pulsar Recon 550 Night Scope is a fully self-contained night vision device operating on four AA batteries. The Pulsar Recon features a two-tone LED indicator, lit green when the unit is on, and red when the night infrared light is active. The moderate intensity of the LED indicator will not illuminate the observer. A Brightness Adjustment Wheel allows you to control the brightness of the LCD screen's glow to preserve your night vision. An LCD color button controls the color of the screen glow and also activates the contrast feature. The Pulsar Recon 550 Night Scope is equipped with a socket for connection of external video recording sources or a TV set to facilitate long-term stationary viewing, as well as video playback. A simple button push switches the unit from VIDEO IN mode to VIDEO OUT.

The Pulsar Recon 550 Digital Night Vision Scope is ideal for night hunting and tracking in the woods. The night scope is just one of the many high-tech night vision optics including nightvision binoculars, digital rifle scopes and binoculars from Pulsar.

Most Recent Review Hog Spotter by BradH, November 18, 2014
I just got back from a TX hog hunt. The 550 worked much better than expected. We put two guys in a blind, one with the 550 and the other with a rifle with a night scope. The spotter acquires targets and holds then in the IR beam, making it super e...

Most Recent Review Pulsar Recon 550 NV - Best value for money by Legacy Reviewer, October 16, 2013
The Recon 550 NV is best for surveillance of limited areas, easy to use, in a range of 200 meters. You can encrease the IR range with a enhanced IR illuminator (mount on picatinny rail), and for recording uses, buy a Yukon digital recorder with a 32 ...

Most Recent Review Great Little Digital by Legacy Reviewer, February 2, 2013
Fantastic little unit. It has a very clear and crisp image, good contrast, with easy, ergonomic controls. I have used it on a skullcrusher and a weapon mount behind a red dot and it has performed very well. Much to the dismay of the coyote population...
