The mag is fixed at x4.5 which isnt enough for longer range rabbit shooting although for an extra 170 you can buy a Dr Bob lens doubler. My mate has an n550 mounted on his rapid and after having a go with it i did come away impressed but... It gives a great image but does sit high on your rifle. The i.r also eats batterys but the one thing that put me off buying is that its not easy to interchange between rifles. The n550 is also advertised as being able to be used in daylight to but i personally thought the image in daylight was rubbish.
Thats why i bought an ns200 5 minutes to swap between rifles easily useable day or night and half the new price of the n550. That said if an n550 came up cheap enough i would buy one! :thumbs:

I have owned one for the last 6 months I have several videos on you tube in day time and night and have no problem
fitting this to either my CZ 452 .22LR or CZ 452 .17 HMR its has a one shot zero so no problem to zero it. I do agree it sits slightly high though, but at least I can shoot the rifle from my shoulder, unlike the Ns200 for me.

again there is a big cost difference between the two units. which is a big factor of course.
again yes the Pulsar unit has to be turned on and will use battery life to be used in the day. I use mine day and night.

The Sony doubler which fits in the front can be picked up for as little as 20.00.
I have a N1000 IR AP fitted to it too, this uses one CR123 battery and lasts many night time shoots 3-4 hours a night, switched on all time.

I would strongly say, try one or see if any one local to you has one to view....!

here are some videos of mine during day time, the setting for the brightness was too high by the way on some of these videos.

Take no notice of the time on the screen its wrong and needs setting.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsjXn-K-I9k&feature=plcp
the closet rabbit is around 90 yrds the ones at back are at 280yrds.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEpbH1yqybw&feature=plcp
badger seen here was at about 90yrds

go to 16 seconds to see.


really depends on cost, if using rifle mainly during day or night , most of my shooting is night time, so i have a Night time rig...

hope some of this helps bud.

from some one who has one. feel free to shout if you want more info.

I have used my ns200 on three different calibres .177 air, 22lr and .17hmr and after over 7 months use on different kinds of vermin really do rate it. I found i very quickly got used to using the screen in the 'heads up' position. I like the fact that the battery also runs the i.r as well as the screen so you havnt got two different power sources.

i also use the ns200 from nite site its easy to set up and can be changed over from one gun to another
in minutes also i own the nite eye system this is the same as the ns200 but cheaper to buy ,
for info google www nite-eye, or watch on youtube piedpiper 361 --Karl is the man who makes the nite eye system
this is an excellent nv system and great value for the price.

Why would you buy a Pulsar N550 when you have no permission ?

Your energy is better spent getting some land , then getting used to hunting , before you know it , it`ll be light nights again ..........
