Night Vision on a day time scope ? NS200

hi
do any of you have this or anything similar ? A Nitesite NS200 ?
this is a night vision display that attaches to your normal day time scope
can be switched between scopes in a few minutes and the scope does not have to be re-zeroed
they are becoming the must have accessory here in the UK

is there anything similar to this type of equipment in the US ? if so, who sells it ?
thanks

Interesting... but at over $900 US, I don't see them being a "must have accessory" anywhere. Thinking of exporting them to the US?

Cheers,

I poked around a bit on line... if there's a US made or sold equivalent, I can't find it. Interesting to note is that their ad states made in the UK... so it's apparently a "home grown" idea.

Apparently not this particular item Devil.

Interesting that it's mounted on a spring piston air rifle. As an avid HW97K shooter, I know air rifles are quite popular in the UK for pest control. You have things we don't have here, like completely legal accessory suppressors for example.

One has to wonder if it's even intended for use on a centerfire rifle.

Very impressive. I also watched a night hunt video where they used additional illumination.

Seems to me that the 200 GBP difference between B&W and color is a bit excessive. I don't know, it's been awhile since I priced out mini cameras and LCD screens.

the £200 difference is not about the colour screen,
the NS50 will only show out to 50 meters, where as (you guessed it !) the NS200 will go out to 200 meters

some people say it is possible to make a home made version, but i would'nt have a clue how to do it ! lol
