Sightmark ghost hunter or armasight opmod?

Postby c0de » Mon Dec 03, 2012 1:37 am

Im looking at a lot of gen 1 nvd's. And for some reason, the sightmark ghost hunter 1x24 stuck out to me the most. It has a automatic shut off if too much light is exposed, and a 3 year tube warranty.

Looking around a bit more, I'm starting to take a liking to the armasight opmod too. But it only has a 2 year warranty, and I'm not sure about the auto shut off feature.

So does anyone have any insight or experience on either of these products?

Generally, Gen1 is considered to be a toy. It's not very useful, however you look at it. Gen2 and Gen3 provide something like a thousand times more gain and where NV is concerned, Gain is critical.

I would recommend that you investigate Gen2 and Gen3 for your purpose before buying Gen1.

To put it into context, if you need a car and can't afford a car, then buying a bicycle makes sense... Unless you're planning on taking long trips.

Gen 2/3 is the car, Gen1, the bicycle.
