Home Built Digital Night Vision Pistol Grip Spotters

Recommended Posts

As I am now fully retired I will have more time on my hands for building night vision devices so I have reduced their prices by around 10% for 2017.

I've had to start using names for my spotters now I have some varieties. This latest one is called a 'Pistol Grip spotter' and is available with a choice of lenses, integrated Infra Red illuminators, handles and mounts etc.

I can supply it with a choice of C mount lenses: 50mm which is great for general rabbit and fox duty - or a 25mm lens for a wider field of view better suited to ratting ranges and the quarry being smaller on the screen. If no size is specified a 50mm lens will be supplied as default.

The ergonomic pistol grip is a more manly hand sized than some I have seen, it has a lanyard loop in it and can be swapped for a tripod or a pan tilt suction mount.

A 5" adjustable brightness monitor acts as a flip off lid to the electronics box that carries three USER SUPPLY FLAT TOP 18650 batteries: I don't supply batteries or chargers so the buyer doesn't need to return the spotter if a battery fails - and if one goes bang because he did something silly he won't be suing me either. :)

Note the two press switches, one for the illuminator and one for the optics - they are very quiet and placed next to each other so they can be individually or collectively activated. Good quality low light cameras like the genuine KPC E700 have better low light performance than cheaper similar sounding one's. This is exploited by making it possible to use the spotter without the illuminator in fair to good moonlight circumstances, or fog for example, check out this video:

This is how the box is opened for battery changing:

Price for the basic integrated T50 IR spotter is now reduced to £200 collected or £213 posted RMSD.

An optional extra 'Black Sun' IR pill can be supplied in the torch at £230 collected or £243 posted RMSD.

I recommend this charger:

And if you don't have an old laptop battery to get several 'free' 18650 batteries from, these are a good buy:







Can be supplied with a pan and tilt suction mount for fitting to the windscreen or sunroof - with the monitor trailing into the car - please order it as a 'suction mount spotter' if you want this option, and indicate if you would like the switches and lens to the right or left side of the device for easier control from inside the truck by the driver or gate bitch :angel:



Can also be supplied with this very upmarket handle/mini tripod (adds £25 to the price) please order it as a 'Tripod handle spotter' if you want this option:

Fit to the spotter direct


Or to the handle if you want some extra height while standing out of a sunroof or to look above some short grass etc.

A good range there, are you intending to produce a spotter with a range finder built in, a tall order I know but that is what I would ideally want.


Best regards

      FOR SALE: 
      Weihrauch HW95K .177 in immaculate condition. I bought this rifle for my Son's birthday in summer however since then we have got a rimfire and it has not been touched. I have not modified or dismantled the gun at all. I have maintained in with the appropriate cleaners and pull through and it has been stored well. 
      In addition to the rifle I include some 1" scope mounts/rings, they aren't any fancy brand but they did the trick with the Hawke 3-9x50 I had on the rifle. 
      Finally I include a nearly full tin of H&N FTT's which in my experience the rifle loves as well as a pull through. 
      I'd like £220 for the lot. I'm Located near Malton in North Yorkshire however I'm willing to travel a short distance to meet a buyer if it helps. 
      PM me if interested, thanks.
