Thread: Pulsar Forward DFA75 Launch Date Confirmed (New Digital Front Mounted NV)

  1. #1

    Pulsar Forward DFA75 Launch Date Confirmed (New Digital Front Mounted NV)

    Hello all

    We have had lots of enquiries regarding the new Pulsar Forward DFA75 Digital front mounted night vision solution.

    The Forward DFA75 is a digital night vision day scope adaptor add one, which is ideal for users with Stalking rifles and quality optics who do not wish to dedicate a rifle to a night vision solution.

    The Forward DFA is equipped with a removable laser IR Illuminator (915 nm wavelength, safety class 1) which functions in the “invisible” IR range. (a first on a device at this price point)

    The illuminator features IR beam focusing (from spot to flood) and three-step power adjustment.

    With a huge illumination operation range of 0.00004lux - 30,000lux the Pulsar Forward represents fantastic performance as an add on NV solution.

    At last we have a confirmed delivery date of 1st January so are effectively taking orders now, bearing in mind they are in limited numbers for the first arrival batch.

    You can find out more here about the new Pulsar Forward DFA75 Digital Night Vision.



    Best Regards

    What would be the recognition range for one of these, anybody know?

    DA

    yeah interested to know the effective range of this one? any idea how it would compare to an archer visibility wise?

    Hello, the official manufacturer spec for the "detection" range which is based on a man sized object 1.7x0.5 m in natural night conditions (0.05 lux, quarter moon) is not available as yet, however the real life recognition range, i.e the range you can effectively use the device for safe hunting in an average environment is approx 200yards.

    We prefer to talk about real life detection ranges, so 200 yards real useable range in itself in real life conditions is usually more than adequate, with real benefit being you can add it to a quality rifle optic in minutes. 200 yards effective use at night, is a hell of a long way in my opinion, and I rarely take a shot much further than 100-150metres at night.

    Bear in mind the Digisight N750 has a "detection" range of 600m and Mike Powell said in his review "as the light faded I could see rabbits coming out of the cleared fields at anything up to 300 yards away". Some dealers make wild claims with detection ranges, we prefer to be realistic.

    We will be stocking adaptors for 42mm, 50mm and 56mm objectives from the off, however more will be available for other options upon request.

    Features to note are "Covert IR Laser" and "Monocular attachment available for hand held use"

    Many thanks - very interesting indeed. Is there any indication as to limitations on magnification power on the scope used? Earlier units seemed limited to 6x or 8x before images became too pixelated.
    Is the onboard laser comparable to the 808?

    The devil will be in the detail.

    Specifically the optical design, and the alignment of the particular unit.

    For a forward mounted adapter to be any use its optical system has to be tolerant of different alignments with the dayscope. No change of zero when it is fitted. It can be done, but its tricky, and to-date rather expensive.

    Attaching an add-on to the eyepiece is trivial by comparison.

    Looking forward to some seeing some critical testing of the unit. If it is sufficiently accurate it could be useful. Which would be remarkable for the price.

    How quick is it to detach & re-attach the unit to the adaptor?

    For example: if i was out with the unit rabbiting using the .22lr & spotted charlie 150yards out, how quickly could i take it off the .22 & re-attach it to the 25-05... assuming that both scopes were of the same objective size or had the correct corresponding adaptors fitted.

    If it was a quick & streamlined interchange then i could see it being a very handy bit of kit indeed.

    I think you will find it will take just a couple of seconds to remove from one to the other, of course you will have to adjust the DSA type adaptor from the scope you remove it from to the one you intend to fix it too.

    I had a Hebridean tech house NV scope ( eye bell fitting) on trial a few years back and did a right up on it and it took me about 3 mins to take it of and about 4 mins to get it back on to another scope,

    i think you may find if you have similar objective lens outer diameters then it will be rather quick,
