Thread: Nv add on or drone pro?

  1. #1

    Nv add on or drone pro?

    Does anyone have any experience of using a cobra blade nv add on unit? How it performs , fitting and unfitting etc
    I'm trying to decide between a digital drone pro or a tubed add on, not altogether sure whether to dedicate wholly to nv or have the choice as the digital won't be as good for any daytime use
    It will be used mainly for foxing and a few rabbits etc
    on a 20 cal
    Any advice?
    Thanks

    new drone pro x10 colour

    totally awesome in the day and even better at night.

    I am running the older one (black and white screen) on my 20 tac tikka and plan to run the new colour one on my sako 20 tactical if the rifle does not sell, ill sell on the Zeiss scope and keep the funds for extra bits such as a nv torch etc

    had a pvs 14 as an add on and to be honest I would not go back there now,

    Hi Fella.

    I love it to bits, I was going to sell mine and get the new one, but the 20 tactical has not found a new home and I have just had a we bit of a windfall so I am thinking ditch the zeiss and slap the newer drone on the sako and leave the tikka as it is,

    having been out last night for about 4 hours with the new drone (colour) and used it in both day and night modes I think its the best thing since sliced bread.

    my good friend will not be best pleased as I said he could purchase my old one when the 20 tac sold but its still sat here and until the add runs out it looks like its staying.

    ps: love 20 cals (20 tac) and few of my shooting friends have now got the new drone so I have to keep up with the jones's

    best of luck bud

    bob.

    I'm really feeling a (new type) Drone Pro. Are they readily available at the moment? The only pain is that I still want to be able to use my existing scope on the intended rifle, so I guess some kind of quick detach mounts are going to be needed.

    they are in stock as we speak but hurry I may be placing an order for 3 for myself and some buddies.

    I wanted to keep the older one here like you and sell on the spare 20 tac but its not sold so with the wee windfall I can keep the older one until the new one arrives.

    He built me a .20 tac shortly after I stopped dithering !!!!

    Are you only looking at *tubed* add-ons? I believe there's an Armasight digital scope add-on (objective end). Saw that a month or 2 ago, so might be available nowish.

    nice one bud

    its a very nice rifle just wish it was about 2" shorter,

    anyway the new drone is 1,699,0 inc delivery within the UK and VAT,

    my mate may have his old one for sale soon as he wants a new one, and if I sell my old 20tac mine is going to another mate,

    Is there an add on - see through unit that fits the front of the scope and lets you use a decent European scope to its full potential. Something lika a Zeiss or Swaro in 3-12x56 and still having crystal clear view at night at 10x or 12x
