    Photon XT

    Hi just got a photon xt and I wondered how you guys set them up to get the best of them as a standard unit. I have heard people put bigger holes in the end cap.

    You can push out the centre of the lens cap for a bigger hole.

    The centre clicks in and out.

    Thinking about one of these for rat shooting- do they work OK as a day scope too, or is that a very secondary function?

    I've found its a good NV scope and can be used in the day in an emergency but I wouldn't like to rely on it as a day scope.

    I used a Butler Creek flip up lens cap (no 13 for the 4.6 I think ) and drilled a 25mm centred hole with a step cutter, it does remove the halo effect from the eye shine when foxing, kept original cap intact and swap them over when required.
