Replacing ATN Tubes

Postby mightnightcaller » Wed Jul 20, 2005 11:07 pm

I have an ATN Paladin Gen 1 riflescope, I have an ITT Gen 3 tube I want to put in it.

Just wondering if anyone has any tips and more importantly any cautions I should be aware of before I attempt to open up my Paladin and replace the tube?

I havent taken the ATN apart yet, so I guess asking if it even uses 18mm tubes would be a good thing to ask.

I also have an ATN Night Storm Gen 2, does that use an 18mm tube? (just incase i'm unable to put the tune in the riflescope)

You can not put a Gen 2 or Gen 3 tube in the Paladin. 1st gen tubes are completely different size and and optical parameters, so there would be no way to make it work. Further, the NightStorm is waterproof, so you should not take it apart.
