Armasight Orian 5X Gen 1 Night Vision Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on October 12, 2013
This thing is quite heavy. Hard to zero in daylight and did you ever try to zero a scope at night? Once you get it zero'd it works pretty well with the IR illuminator (which isn't leagle in my state) so I'm limited to distances of 30 to 75 yds on a dim lit night. Optics Planet kind of jerked me around getting it to me because the "Free Cap" was on backorder, so they put the whole thing on backorder. Took 2 weeks to get the scope and I still don't have my "Free Cap". Been waiting on it for a month.
Pros: Price
Cons: Heavy, Hard to zero...
Would recommend: No

Armasight Orion 5X Arrived DOA

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on October 5, 2013
I didn't even bother to see if the crosshairs could be adjusted. Just shipping it back. If you read reviews on these things they are not tested and are hit and miss. Normally the tube turns on though so this is a real miss.
Pros: Reticle turns on but not much else
Cons: Light enhancement does not even turn on - no green glow. Illuminator also doesn't work....
Would recommend: No

This is the best Gen 1 night vision scope on the market. You can look at others but you will be disappointed. The price is right on this item.
Pros: Clear visibility at night. Eyepiece is large enugh to encompass your entire eye, making it hard to give away your position.
Cons: The weight for a small person might be overwhelming. ...

Not what I expected

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on August 15, 2013
Poor definition and resolution. Images are mostly just green. Difficult to pick out objects. A better IR source than the one provided with the scope might be helpful.
Pros: price, well constructed
Cons: not very clear - poor contrast...

Great for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 25, 2013
Was expecting something with far less clarity. The night scopes issued me in the Navy 15 years ago couldn't touch it's capabilities. Sighted it in at 100 yards with almost no ambient light, and infrared lit up the target like a spotlight. With a moon and stars, you could probably sight in at 200. I only wish the base model had more magnification instead of having to add a doubler.
Pros: Clarity
Cons: Wish it had more magnification...
Would recommend: Yes
