disappointed

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 23, 2013
Guys, whats going on? MK 350 has rated almost with 5 stars, all the reviews are positive but what I got is just embarrassing! Yes, I didnt wait too long for my order as it was already in stock and Optics Planet delivered it in time BUT the device didnt work. Course I called to the customer service and tried to solve the problem and I was promised that the scope will be changed. Well, I think I deserved more quick delivery and again no luck. The box seemed to be opened and a bit crushed and honestly, the image I saw through MK 350 didnt impress me at ALL! What was that? I really didnt expect such service and device quality. Sorry, but Im very disappointed and would hardly buy anything from ATN again!...

Good NV for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, GA Written on March 26, 2013
This is a good gen 1 scope.I have one mounted on an AR 15 platform for coyote hunting. I added one sightmark IR 805 to the front of the gun wich extended my range out to about 150 yds. The ATN 350 is as good of a gen 1 as i have used.
Pros: Built well and compact
Cons: Eye cup is a little uncomfortable...

Why spend more to kill a Hog?

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 16, 2012
Yes, GEN 2 and 3 are better. They are lighter, last longer and may even have a better picture. But are they worth it a 5x ,10x or 15x the cost? Not to kill a hog.

The scope is large but not enormous, just invest in a rest, bi-pod or shooting sticks(still much cheaper than Gen 2). The included IR is good and because of the picatinny mount a high power IR is even better.

My ATN has a crystal clear view with good moon light or the IR well out 100 yards. You can even add a cree red light for coyote hunting and see far beyond that. I mounted mine on a 1/2 inch riser to clear the BUS sights on my AR.

Its a solid scope that uses a common battery (good life too).

I think the expected life-span is 1000 hours which is fine for the money. If I got to do anything I liked for a 1000 hours it would be a miracle.
Pros: Price, clarity, setup.
Cons: Weight, expected lifespan....
Would recommend: Yes

Solid build, but dark "fisheye" effects.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 17, 2012
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....
Would recommend: No

Excellent scope for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 30, 2012
I have owned this scope for several months and wanted to wait until I had a chance to use it several times before reviewing. The scope is reasonably small and light for a Gen. I scope. It comes with a rail mount and is easy to install. However make sure your rifle mount has sufficient thickness so the scope rail clears the receiver. My Ruger 10/22 rail was too thin to mount this scope so I have to replace the scope base with a thicker mount. If the scope rail touches the receiver is will tend to pull the mount up and away from the receiver. Zeroing the scope was not a problem during the day with the front light restricting cap, but the clarity is not as good as it is at night. Focusing the scope is a little slow as you need to turn the focus ring and adjust the eyepiece for the best image, but once set for a certain range the optics are clear and objects are easily identify out to 100 yards. The infrared illuminator works quite well. For an inexpensive entry level night vision scope I dont think you will beat this scope for quality and clarity. I would definitely purchase this product again.
Pros: Clear optics
Cons: Little slow to adjust for clarity...
Would recommend: Yes

Great buy

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on June 24, 2012
I found this item to be just as represented and set it up and was shooting my Colt H-Bar in 10 minutes. Already had it up and running for coyotes and had no issues with any of it. Might purchase another IR light to help in the dark nights but over all I was owning up to 100 yards.
Pros: Not overly expensive, Easy to use, Had it set up and running in 10 minutes.
Cons: none based on the money versus value...
Would recommend: Yes

Great initial night scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on June 14, 2012
I purchased this scope as my first night-vision scope fo hog hunting. It has met all of my expectations. MY buddy bouth a different model and wants to trade with me. Won't do that of course. If looking for a good initial night scope without spending a lot of money, this is the one for you.
Pros: cost, ease of use
Cons: Setting the focus is cumbersome, magnification...
