Thread: NV spotter/monocular on a budget

    NV spotter/monocular on a budget

    Looking for a digital NV spotter or monocular on something of a tight budget. At the moment I am torn between the Yukon Ranger LT 6.5x42 and the Pulsar 860vs. I am leaning towards the pulsar as it has a rail for mounting an external IR source. Just wondering if anyone has experience with either of these or anything similar. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    I've got a Pulsar 750, which also has a rail to put an additional IR torch on, which you WILL need.
    There is a second-hand one on flea bay at the moment.

    Interesting, I would have thought they would use the same technology from their riflescopes. Thanks for the heads up.

    These look very good value, will do a little more investigating.

    Very disappointed with mine - I can see a long way , but can't get a sharp focus.

    I use a bushnell equinox z6x50, I find it very good, it does have a rail to mount external ir if you need it,i don't bother but do take out extra batteries with me as the ir eats batteries for fun.

    I think the sure24 monocular is the same unit, just un branded. ebay has loads of the same same model, sold under different names/makes. I used my friends 6x50 against my pulsar and it blew the pulsar away.
