Orion 5x NV Gen 1+ Rifle Scope

by Eric, from United States, FL Written on December 19, 2014
Very impressed with the clarity of this scope. Its a bit bulky but well worth the price. I plan on doing alot of recon and elimination of pesky hogs on a few friends farms. The thing i didnt like was the fact that it was supposedly in stock but still took three and a half weeks to receive it. I would recomend it to anyone....
Pros:
  • easy to use.
  • Good value for the money,
Cons:
  • bulky and heavy
Best Used for:
  • pesky hogs
Would recommend: Yes

The Greatest Scope you can Buy for the nite vision

by Ambassador21, from United States, IL Written on November 21, 2014
I'm a devout hunter and my son too. he wanted the night vision scope for a birthday present before deer season. He said the wild hogs were eating all the bait and feed for the deer at night and he couldn't see them to shoot them. So he wanted the night vision scope to shoot the hogs at night. When he got it installed on his ar15 which he had to use an extra rail to lift the scope up to mount it because the front lens is so large I checked it out and its like day time looking through it, It has 4 lite settings from dark to bright it also has a bright red set of cross hairs. It fantastic. It has a lens cover to cover the lenses up with a small hole on the front cover so you can use it in day lite too but they don't recommend using it the light they say it will ruin the integrity of the scope. It has a rear cup that fits tight to your eye to keep the lite out which works great. All in all the scope is everything its supposed to be. I highly recommend it to anybody that wants to shoot at night ..Im gonna buy one for myself now....

Great Product!

by Ambassador21, from United States, IL Written on November 21, 2014
I have been using this scope on my crossbow for several months now, I love it. I only use it to about 50 yards and the sharpness is very good. The scope comes with 2 batteries, 1 for the scope and the other for the IR illuminator. The batteries are CR123A for both and last a long time, I am still on the batteries they sent me. The scope will see much farther than I mentioned, just not what I am doing with my crossbow. The only complaint is that I feel the power button and the IR illuminator are on the wrong side of the scope, unless you are a lefty. It is a minor thing, but hard to turn on and off while holding up the bow, should have been on the right so you could operate with your trigger finger. It is well made, just a bit heavy, but they all are, and worth the money, I do recommend this one with the Gen 1+, a big step up from the older night vision I had before....

Armasight Orion 5x

by Rubio, from Spain, Madrid Written on September 5, 2014
After reading a lot about this Scope I made up my mind and bought it. I was looking for a good scope for hunting wild boar, but I couldn't afford a Gen2 or 3. I have used it for several weeks now and I am really happy with it. Extremelly easy to zero, I haven't missed a shot since I have it. It comes with the IR810, which is essential during nights with little or no moon. With it you can easily see your target at around 70-80 metres, what I think is amazing for a Gen1 and this price. Having said that, it has several cons too: it's really (really) heavy. If you aim and cannot find your target your arms are going to hurt very quickly. Even if you are in good shape, you won't be able to hold your cross still for more than 10-15 seconds. Although little by little you get used to it, your back is not going to thank you. Besides, the resolution is not outstanding either. When you look at a scenery with no bushes or trees, very homogeneous, you think the scope is not working, that you are not seeing anything, because you can't differentiate objects (for example when I looked at a dry stream full of rocks). On the other hand, if an animal or living being is there, you will see it perfectly, because its eyes will glow like big flashlights in the dark. This way I was able to shoot at a wild boar and a fox that were hidden behind a bush. I am very pleased with it and now I am thinking about buying a NV monocular, so I don't have to hold the rifle with this heavy scope every time I heard...

Worth the Money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 5, 2014
Great product for the money. Sight in was easy, picture at night is more than to be expected for the cost. Although not the greatest on pitch black nights. But its to be expected in my eyes. Minor problem with the IR light which is being addressed now. I would recommened the IR 850 light over the supplied 810 light for further distances. But overall well worth the money.
Pros: Well made, good operation for price
Cons: Weight, my IR light stopped working before i got to use the scope in a hunt. hopefully just a fluke. I wrote to OP about the problem, now waiting on a reply....

Seems to have poor quality control on IR illuminator

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 22, 2013
I purchased this on November 6th, and as of yet, I have not gotten the defective IR illuminator issue taken care of. the IR 810 would flicker then go off, I received a new illuminator from the MFG on the 18th of December installed the battery and it won't even turn on. This makes me concerned about the scope itself, will it crap out shortly too?
Pros: Scope seems okay
Cons: IR 810 illuminator issues...
