New guy from florida

Postby george_995 » Mon Feb 18, 2013 5:40 pm

Wanted to introduce myself. I found this site through multiple searches. :D

I am looking to learn as much as I can about NV devices as possible for firearm(hunting) use and Security applications.

Thanks,
George.

Hi George,
Welcome, there is a wealth of knowledge on this forum. I stumbled around picking up bits and pieces of info from magazines or the WWW before I found this site.
Also lucky you is on the good side of the ITAR wall for most things anyway. The addiction you are about to suffer will be a bit less expensive (maybe).

cheers

Thank you for the warm welcome. One day I would like to attempt building a NV unit, I have yet to put time into research for this though.

I have looked into some youtube videos for novice/intermediate builds, this guy seems to have a good design for his air rifle rigs.

Thank you for the links the last one has answered my question about which camera to use.

The US sites seem to concentrate on the Image Intensifier Tube tech, probably due to the avaiability of cheap good quality Gen3 tubes.

The British sites have more users of Camera/Digital technology this I think has more to do with the higher cost of decent Gen3 tubes outside the US than any other reason. Also the digital is not as easily damaged.

I could see using a set up like his on a .22 lr rifle. But I wonder if the camera would be fine with center fire ammunition such as 223/5.56 or 308 winchester, the 308 being my main concern? Both calibers would be from an AR platforms(ar15 and ar10 variant).
