A dandy little device.

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 25, 2014
If you want something fun to use on a camping trip, well boy, you found it!!! This thing is great for just exploring, and messing around. If you wanna be a backyard Sam Fisher, or a runaround Solid Snake, this is your best piece of gear. If you're a serious prepper or soldier, or anything like that, then you might want to go ahead and save up the $2,000 for a good set of GEN 3, AN/PVS-7's. These are just fun to have for the sake of having fun. IT'S A REAL GEN 1 NIGHT VISION DEVICE, and that's all that matters to me.
Pros: Light, Head gear is comfy, Does it's job well, Can turn off IR.
Cons: Not a very far draw distance, Has a bit of a fisheye effect, Built in IR LED glows red....
Would recommend: Yes

honest oppinion

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 13, 2014
This is my first night vision optics ever.
I carefully researched the market for 1 month, and from all Gen1 types this was The One that seemed to offer the most out on the field.
And it was the right choice!
My first impression: "damn this thing is real!!"
Second impression: "damn I can see way farther than what I learned it is capable of!!"

At night if ambient light permits bare eye visibility to roughly at 50m, then in these conditions with the Opmod Vega in passive mode you can see very clearly and very detailed to vast distances. (So again: with bare eyes in low ambiental light 50m means long distances in passive night vision mode.)

With infra ON the light emitted is not really far, I can say less than 50m, but specs mention this. It's a short range flood type of infra red light. Get a long range one optionally if you need a long range infra. (The "red lighting LED" infra can be seen shining on the front of the device, but only for like 20m.)

Warning! From the moment the device is turned OFF, the night vision is still ON for a few minutes (it's slowly fading out!) so bare in mind that this way you can still see for like a good 10 minutes, also be very careful not to flash any lights into the front objective lens, as the device is still in fragile mode. Put on the rubber cap when you turn it off.

The head-mount is tricky to figure out how to use it in the dark (mounting on and getting off the scope), but once that I got used to it, it becomes easy. (Advice:...

Great Optic

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on October 8, 2013
Great optic and solid headgear. I have a single black dot in my tube, but only visible with IR. Works well, but if batteries are low it will start acting odd (failing to turn on periodically). I wish there was a dedicated IR button and the IR light itself could have a wider range. Met expectations and I'm overall very happy.
Pros: Light, Rugged, Clear, Solid Head Mount
Cons: Would prefer dedicated IR button...

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on August 27, 2013
This is an easy to setup and use NV goggle. I like the hands-free usage.
A pity that it has limited range but I suppose that since this is a Gen1 unit, you can't beat the others. Still, it performs to expectations.
Pros: Easy to setup and use. Very portable
Cons: Limited range...

Awesome For Price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on August 1, 2013
Not expecting this type of clarity in a package at this price point. Adding in a usable headset really set it off. Did a side by side with a PVS-14. While the PVS-14 was obviously better, it wasn't 12 times better. This is a nice unit!!
Pros: Pretty darn clear!
Cons: None...

Armasight OPMOD Monocular

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, KY Written on July 31, 2013
Great value for a Gen 1 Night Vision /w headset. With stars out or moon you can see pretty good. It has a little bit of a fish eye view around the edge. I had a problem with the IR illuminator not working. I called Armasight and they were more than glad to take care of the problem. I had several questions about Night Vision and what product was right for me and Steven B answered all my questions and helped me out. A+ for Armasight Customer Service.
Pros: very light, Headset is awesome, great value...

Just Outstanding

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MO Written on June 5, 2013
I ordered these same as all, wanting to get into NV cheap and easy. I live on a farm in the midwest, and wanted to be able to see how many coyotes were getting how close to the house. This works great. The headset was easy to setup and use and I was very happy with both the brightness of the monocle and the range of sight.

The only gripe I have about it is the attached IR is too close to the monocle, and shares a power switch with the NV. If you are behind cover and cycle your NV off, you need to make sure to close your eye to avoid the momentary flash of IR.

I used an Armasight mount adapter and mounted mine to my AR. Paired with a LaserMax Uni-IR site and a Sightmark IR-805 Compact Infrared Illuminator, and I get a great range of sight (~80/100 yards).

Overall, this allowed me to get a nightvision setup that can be attached to multiple guns in a matter of minutes and reaches out to where I need it for home protection at under $525. I've been very happy.
Pros: Good resolution, easy to adjust, excellent light absorbtion
Cons: Attached IR shows red, is mounted too close to the monocle, and no detachable, Both share the same power switch meaning IR must be cycled each time. Can hurt your eye when you are close to something....

Really Impressive

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MO Written on May 23, 2013
Overall, I was just super impressed with these. No, they're not the latest generation, but snapping them on and being able to see into my field at night was priceless, but I got it for a great price. I live in a woods bordered field and I'm able to see out to approximately 60 yrds on the ground without the IR illuminator. I can see perhaps 200 yds into tree branches, but not into trees.
Pros: Adjustments were easy, weight is almost non-existent, very impressive
Cons: Area to focus is a little long for me. I'm attempting to mount this to my AR, but I have yet to figure out how to get it an appropriate distance from the site. I think the distance is just too close for it to focus on. The IR light is, of course, visible, but I'm not human hunting, so that's really OK for my applications. It is, however, mostly only useful inside. Outside (and away from city lights), I have been able to see well without it, Putting it on gains me clarity out to 20yds, but makes any close up objects so bright as to hurt the eyes....
