The Armasight Orion 4x Gen 1+ Night Vision Rifle Scope for a Gen 1 Night Vision Scope is a Definite improvement over a previous noisy~gyro/sceechish? sounding Russian Manufactured Generation 1 3X scope I had bought & returned 7 years back?(Not purchased from here!)
The Armasite Orion 4X Scope is built like a tank! and rubber coated + quite. Also has much improved overall night vision picture quality/clarity under starlight conditions (yah I know it's a Gen 1 but $$$ less than a Gen2) And also with the new and improved? IR810 Illuminator - *Note "My Original IR810" (WITH an internal star plate seen behind the front lens on Original version IR810 Illuminator's lens when it worked before it Failed) Well with the replacement- brighter IR810 Illuminator replacement in Total darkness *Note#2 (IR red glow can been seen more so on the new IR810) Night Vision Capability is Very Good . A Very sturdy built "Work Horse" Unit for the money. I hope it will take.308 semi- auto recoil over time?
Pros: Value / Well Built
Cons: IR810 infrared illuminator Failed after little use
