I have been hearing very good reports on the Night Master 800 ir unit, so on Thursday i phoned Scotts country and had a chat about the unit, after being told i could spot Foxes out to 200 Meters i placed an order of £189.99. Friday afternoon it turned upon my doorstep can't fault that for service, but that's where my praise ends. At 10.30pm i took my Archer and my 223 and the Night Master out for a trial run, i got to the Fields i was going to test the N M , i opened the gate and just drove inside the Field , i then mounted the N M unit onto my scope slid the Archer onto my rifle and then for 15 minutes tried all sorts on different things with the Night Master to get it focused with my scope , but i was'nt very happy with the view through the scope i tried mounting the NM on the side of my scope and on top of the scope but it made very little difference with the view i was getting I tried the flood position the spot position and every other position but it made no difference. any way off i drove further across the long straight Field , i was useing my hand held lamp just for a spotting light and sure enough i caught the shine of an eye a good way from me , i stopped my Truck and slid the Archer on my scope turned on the NM but could'nt pick up the Fox i thought it had moved off,i turned on the lamp and there was the eyes again, back on with the NM still no Fox i turned on my Fire fly that i have on my Archer and straight away i could see the eyes of the Fox,i slowly drove towards the Fox a few more yards and he stayed sat looking in my direction, i stopped the Truck and turned on the NM all i could see was a hazy blurred eye shine, i moved the Nm to the top of my scope no better view back to the side still blurred i messed about with the spot the flood light and everything i could but i could'nt get a clear view of the Fox , who after all this time was still sat down, i turned on the Fire fly with the Archer and i could see IT as plain as day i chambered a round and pulled the trigger and missed , the Fox ran a few yards and stopped the second shot ended with a thud and the Fox rolled over, i turned off the Fire Fly and had a look for the dead Fox with the Night Master but i could'nt see it but when i looked through with the Fire fly i could see the Fox laying on the ground and it was 210 yards away.i then drove to another Field and could see a Hare 124 yards away but i could only see it with the Fire Fly Not the NM, a bit further across the Field another Fox 168 yards shot with the Archer And Fire Fly, the next Field another Fox and that was also shot with the Fire Fly at 87 yards i never even bothered to turn the Night Master on again . I came home very very disappointed with the Night Master as a night vision unit, as a gun light i can not comment but i would say for the Night vision it's over priced by £140 all the reviews are shite and people must be payed well to say what they do about this nv unit marks out of 10 for build quality 10 for use as a night vision unit on the Archer any way 4,It may work ok on the Pulsar 750 but that i can't say . my end report is that i am £190 out of pocket and got a unit i will never use again, so if any one wants to make me an offer for a unit that has only been used for no more that 30 minutes P M , ME WITH A SENSIBLE OFFER.
