I have just landed a great bit of shooting permission ...the reason I got the permission was I blagged it to the land owner that I had a great bit of night vision and he would not even know I had been there in the morning... I have about upto a thousand pound to spend ...I have been looking at either the night eye 500 or the night hunter unit ...does any one have any good recommendations ...thanks

If you have around £1500 to play with then the new king of the pile is the drone pro :thumbs:

if you are only shooting at 30m you can spend a lot less.even if you want to spot at 150-200yds you can buy gear for less than £250 complete with a T-20 ir. :thumbs:

I am looking for something that will last me and it will also be getting put on a rim fire sometimes...I like the idea of looking into a screen instead of a scope ...

Then you are spoilt for choice,you can build your own from £100 upwards,£250 should get you a better kit than the ns200.

Have a read around the forums there are countless threads to help you out :thumbs:

Did you get any ideas from anywhere else ...I was looking at the DIY version on the nite vision forum
But I am crap at fixing things and I have a bad feeling it could go pear shaped with me and my heavy hands....cheers
