ATN Paladin 390 Night vision scope
The futures bright, the futures......green.
Bought this scope for 100 yard fox control to use in conjunction with a .17 HMR. A bit dissapointed with the IR illuminator, (supplied). But was pleasantly suprised when I easily adapted an old Deben Tracer Max Lamp, (variable power) with IR filter, (about £20). This, I found just bathed everything in invisible light and was wowed by its clarity. To the extent that I now have it mounted on a moderated 22 250, as it will allow me to shoot at much further ranges than the .17 HMR.
Paladin has a weaver mount on top of the scope, so other IR illuminators can be used.
Initially, I had concerns about how it might deal with recoil; So far, so good.
I try to avoid using it in the rain, as I could not find anywhere any info about its durability in these conditions, prior to buying it. Any Ideas?
A little on the heavy side but otherwise very impressed.
Just wish they could supply it without the IR illuminator, which now sits in box un-used. Might be cheeper. Though it would probably be fine on an air rifle.
