I am looking at getting a new lamping kit,I have been using the lightforce kit for a number of years now.
But I am pretty close to buying the new night master 800 LED, getting good reports

Has anybody tried one, any suggestion of which LED cocolours

thanks for your feed back

I have both NM800 as lamping light and scope mounted light both are on red led,'s I cant fault the lights in any way they are expensive but you get what you pay for. If you do get one or any other type of led light invest money into a quality charger and batteries.

Panosonic or Xtar about the best and I would go for protected circuits

​hope this helps

It depends how you lamp, the NM800 is fantastic if you are out on your own or sitting still but for covering much area from a vehicle you still can't beat a lightforce

lightforce 170 on the same mount on the sutton farm 4x4

I have been using a lightforce 170 for ages, just had a loan of a nightmaster with both the white, and red led units, ideal for lamping bunnies from a barn etc, but I do prefer the spread of the 170, even on 'tight' when scanning around for Charlie's eyes, but the pair together, nightmaster on rifle, lightforce handheld, good combo.

Guys its all down to personal choice in the end, but not having wires tangeling you up or battery packs clanking about is rather nice . If people are finding the NM800 beams too tight try Olight 50 or 51 range far wider spread or if you want sill distance Olight 90 (1km)

I Too am thinking of something else, Ive got through 2 lightforce lamps in as many years! I do most of my foxing solo. I do like to get close and use a dimmer in the final stages. I understand the 800 has a lower intensity function? And you can vary the tightness of the beam?? Any tips or pointers appreciated from someone who uses one.

it has 3 settings low medium and high and you can adjust the beam by rotating the head simple. I love mine mostly with the IR led combined with an archer but its certainly not bad on red either

Boarboy,

I use the NM800 mounted on the scope,and one on the ps22 i use as a spotter,iv'e had some fox's drop to the ground before when hit with the very tight beam,and others seem to just stare at the light as its just so bright,its a great torch and yes not cheap but great for shooting.The red led works very well but i believe theres a green led as well which is supposed to be good .
And Tikka if your local to banbury you can try nm800 out if you wish

Is the low quite a low light, if you know what I mean!? I still get foxes scared off with my lightforce dimmed down on red. Excuse my ignorance but what is the difference between the IR led and the normal one?? If your shooting a fox with nightvision doesn't putting an IR lamp on them defeat the object of the nightision? sorry, I don't know much about NV! always willing to learn.

IR Led is just another illuminator device
depending on frequency it is unseen by our and foxes eyes but your NV device will look like daylight!

I saw a N500 with a Lightforce and an IR filter. outstanding!

I see. Im now thinking about setting up a rifle with purely night vision. What would be the best set up or way for me to go about it?. I fox mainly small paddocks on average 10 acre fields, fairly wooded areas, most shots would be 80-150 yards.

Depends on your budget & if you want to tie a rifle up with a dedicated NV unit or use an add-on

i can afford to tie up a rifle with night vision. What I can afford in terms of equipment is another thing. What would I have to spend bearing in mind I can get quite close to most of the foxes I shoot.? They're not long range open ground foxes.
