    PULSAR DIGISIGHT N550 are they worth there money

    Good day to you all, been looking into getting PULSAR DIGISIGHT N550, are they as good as they say they are? i was going to buy an ND3 laser but i was put of so i saved up and i am thinking about getting one of these to go on .223. Any body with any expearance with these and how you find them? What distances you been getting the old foxes with them and do you need a moon for them to work at there best. Have a good day

    Don't know if you have seen >>THIS<< or >>THIS<<

    Doesn't look to bad, sorry but can't comment on use as I havn't used one.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Ive used one a few times.. Someone i know has one too and he has shot a few foxes with it. IMO its not a viable solution for shooting foxes at night unless its all within 50 - 100yds, absolute MAX! I think the let downs are that its only 4x mag, the clarity is pretty poor at any of the normal fox shooting distances and i think it is overpriced for what it is. I initially thought it was because it wasnt set up for me, but after tinkering for an hour with one to get the best out of it, i still didnt think it was good value.

    Points i thought were good were things like the 1 shot zeroing, while not being perfect, work quite well albeit if you can see the hole in the target at 100yds (which i couldnt).

    I think this bit of kit would be suitable for an air rifle or .22 rimfire for bunnies or sorting out town foxes etc but for normal foxing operations using CF rifles in the normal shooting band (50yds - 150yds) i think its underwhelming.

    Ive been lucky enough to have a go with some proper NV available to the discerning foxing man and it knocks spots off the pseudo-NV. If i were you, i would keep saving and buy proper NV.

    80-100yrds Max okayish. I have a add on you can have a scan around if you spot a Target it take seconds to attach to you every day scope, if you was that way inclined "I AM NOT" you can see and id Fox's 300yrds no problem so could take the shot. id Hares at same distance For me 180yrds down is plenty far enough at night NO MATTER what system you use. Mine cost 1000 Unit-100mn Laser and scope adater

    Save your money!

    I'm in same situation at mo, want nv for my .223! Now I have looked thru an used a pulser 550 and personally think they are *****! Fine for air rifle, perhaps Rimfire but not ideal for cf! Now last week I was fortunate to use a gen3 kite, pvs14 and a longbow! Yes they are more expensive but well worth saving up for! The D760 and D480 are also worth looking at for dedicated set ups!
    See if anyone local to you has any equipment you could have a look thru?! It's all very good reading reviews but people are biased to what they use. At the end of the day your eyes won't lie to you!
    Hope this helps!

    I have a pulsar on a 223 but not shot a lot of foxes but have shot hares and rabbits out to 150 yards with it. I have to use it with lamp and infared filter on.
    But its clear as a bell out to 300 yards and id stuff upto 500. Its a pain to lamp with due to it been mounted to rifle.
    Ive mounted a digi monocular to my roof mounted lamp and piped it upto a 7 inch monitor in the cab, so you lamp with monitor then when you spot a fox lock lamp off and shoot it with pulsar. ill get round to putting some pics on. Reason for not shooting a lot is just not putting time in with it but it works well.
    If anyone is round preston and wants a ganders than im more than happy to take them out.

    Hello all, and cheers Bri for the generous offer, if it wasn't for the fact that I live in Nottingham I'd take you up on it. I was looking through one of these at the gunshow in Newark this weekend (great affair this year by the way) and thought it had potential. The main problem I as I see it isn't so much the sytems ability to see in the dark, it's more to do with the often poor 'built in' illuminators which goes with them. I have NV bino's. They're rubbish if it's pitch black and I rely on their built in IR lamp. However, I use a cab mounted lightforce lamp with IR filter, and with that I can see out to 300m+. Sounds to me like the Pulsar may be the answer to my problem....once I've spotted the fox, I have to switch to white light to use my scope.... = running fox! I don't really want to have my rifle with a scope I can't use in daylight because I shoot a lot of foxes in early evening during the summer. All of my foxes are shot at 200m max because I like to sit and wait, and bait and squeak them in closer.

    I'd appreciate more opinions from people who have used them.

    Cheers!

    Got to say the reticules are a problem on the pulsar. Ive been trying to change them but since im a computer retard im not having much success. Because of crap mag the reticule covers to much target
