Legacy Reviewer's Review of ATN Aries MK 350 Guardian Night Vision Rifle Scope

While there is no disputing ATN build quality or customer service, these Gen1 scopes do not compare favorably with more modern alternatives. Looking through one is much like peering through a "fisheye" peephole into a murky environment of greens & greys. Limited functional field of view & low light transmission. My advice would be to accumulate money for something of a later generation (even Gen2 is significantly superior). Sure, you are "in the ball-park" with these systems, but these days the bar has been set far, far higher than these heavy, opaque scopes can meet (and then there's still the paperwork). Contrasting, say, a Gen3 Pinnacle tube to one of these is similar to comparing 20/20 vision to life with cataracts.
Pros: Easily affordable, Rugged construction.
Cons: Heavy, Low light transmission, "Fisheye" effect, Needs aux illuminator.

This review was written in the old system and had content requirements that are different than reviews written today.

Would Recommend: No
