Looking to get a NV scope for my 243. Been looking at pulsar but there's too much to choose from any suggestions?

Thank you

Try and have a look through a few. Various sellers, importers offer night sight evenings.you tend to get what you pay for with nv but it's also about being familiar with it and knowing how to get the best out of it. You can spend megabucks, but get the same results with more modes gear.
Don't dismiss the pulsar. Good bit of kit at a good price relatively speaking. I've had one for a few years. The ATN x site looks interesting but I'd want to see through it first. It's got a lot of features but to me, the most important features are field of view and resolution. They can keep their gps etc.
Don't forget a good illuminator. Mn800 is quality.

Ian, apologies for piggybacking this topic. Im a NV novice but wanting something for my 22 rimfire AND my air rifle. The rimmy one would be for shooting rabbits probably no further than 40-50 yards, the air rifle one would be for rats and roosting pigeons around farms. I see some are actual scopes and some look like a mini tv screen connected to your scope. There seem a plethora on fleabay. What would be a good budget priced starter? cheaper the better

You need to do more research first.

If your happy with screened, you could do a cheap diy build for less than 100 quid all in and get the performance you are looking for. Increase your budget and you increase your range, battery life and resolution as you switch out the 'weak links' for better quality / better performing items.

If you want a dedicated sight, for what you say you want I'd probably think about a second hand photon with a slightly better illuminator for dropping on top.


Without knowing budget or what style you would prefer, it's hard to give solid advice but the bonus of an add on, screened kit is that you can stick it on absolutely anything and it's good to go, with a photon it would be more effort to swap it about between guns and re-zero each time.
