We have had lots of enquiries about fitting the new Night Master NM800IR Infrared illuminator to night vision devices, in particular the Pulsar Digisight riflescopes and Pulsar Recon hand held units and had enquiries from the forum on how we can fit them to your NV devices.
As you probably know the issue with a generic IR illuminator is aligning the output pattern with the vision through your device and physical attachment other than using the slightly crude riflescope mount, which I admit is fine on a DSA based NV device.
The new Night Master mounts have arrived into stock today, and I thought i would give you a sneak peak of how it works.
Initial impressions are that it may appear bulky, but they weigh less than 300gms with batteries, and does not adversely effect the handling on a centrefire sporting rifle, in fact its actually only a little heavier than a Laserluchs kit, at a third of the cost and amazing power output for such a small device. (500m claimed, although effectively we could illuminate a fox target at 250m perfectly comfortably on an N750, to the point we would feel safe and confident identifying and taking a shot)
Massively over engineered they are I agree, but accurate, positive and well made with it with horizontal and vertical adjustment with a positive lockoff when aligned also.
It has a quick release system for removing the complete unit and mount from your Digisight in seconds, but remains secure that you can knock it, bump it and fire large rounds through without movement.
You can also quickly release the Nightmaster to swap from devices also but leave the mount fixed to your NV device.
Really brings the fantastic power of the Night Master illuminators to your NV kit with a secure method of attachment now.
We have been using the new Mk2 Night Master NM800IR on our demo Digisight N750 and Recon 750 units, and are very impressed, to a level we only usually get excited about when using Laserluchs devices......
