    Best external illuminator to use with an ATN X site

    Hi,

    This is a request for a mate who is an X site user but feels he need some more illumination.

    What do people use and should it be red light or IR (none visible)

    Thanks

    IR light - not sure why you'd use red? The T-series torches work well without being too expensive (T20, T38 etc)
    Nooooooooooooobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!! Our main weapon is.........

    Theres a new osram black ir led that has just come onto the market and these are being fitted into the t series of torches and are far superior to the original osram black ir, but either will do the job

    Yep, the new Oslon Black 'AS' suffixed IR led is a big improvement over the original........ but the wholesalers initial batch have run out of stock! Expected back in stock in August.

    The only seller who appears to have any AS's is Clive of nvscopes.com. He's called them Black Ice to distinguish them from the existing OB's and is selling retrofittable pills as well as complete torches.
    Cheers

    I think they are about 1/2 the power again and don't have the lines on them ?

    Depending on what gun he is going to use it on the t20/t38 or t50 with the original osram black or an ir laser might do the job
