price of night vision scopes



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all,for a while now I have been contemplating on getting myself a night vision scope,nothing mad that will break the bank,something on the style of a budget scope,
So I searched the web looking for a nice cheap scope to start off with,[something I can put on my CZ .17 hmr],checked out the local gun shops in Ireland,have to say some night scopes I would need to take out a second mortgage to buy one,i will go back first explain what I want it for.

Here in Ireland we don't have big game like most of you have in the U S of A,we have deer which we have a season on and you need a 243 and up to shoot them,next we have fox which are classed as vermin so you can if you want shoot them al year round,i don't I like them to breed as everything is entitled to breed,and it would be killing my own sport shooting all year round,farmers in Ireland might beg to differ with me but that's my opinion,next we have rabbit which fall into the same category at the fox and then we have hare which I rearly shoot as I keep a few long dogs and like to see them give this running machine a run for their money,on the feathered kind we have pheasant duck and pigeon,season on most,

so searching the web a lot of night scopes are a little expensive for my liking so during my surfing I came across a sightmark wraith day and night hd digital vision scope,i searched the web and youtube and watched most videos on it,a lot of great reviews on it,everyone had a good thing to say about it,and a good price as well,

Now the price,in the states it sells for 499 dollars,for nothing in my book,it runs about 435 euro in irish currency ,which is a bargin,but they don't export this outside their country,which is bad news for me,now I found one in the united kingdom,but the price it a bit higher,599 sterling which is 658 euros,and last but not least I find one of these scopes in Ireland,down the south of Ireland,and a whooping price of 725 euros,which runs to 854 dollars,a differance of 355 dollars more than in the states, but sadly we have tax on everything,so that explains why every thing is so expensive here,
I understand why most tourists call good oul Ireland, RIP OF IRELAND ,haha,
but its not the end of the world just yet so will keep looking and maybe just maybe I will get a scope like this one just to start out with,

Check with the air gunners. They have been modifying digital cameras for night vision ratting.

I've got a Wraith on a rifle I use coyote hunting, and it was money well spent. I don't know if it would run into problems with ITAR or something but if you're really interested in the Wraith you could check Amazon or other sources instead of buying direct.

Well Lads,i checked amazon,no they wont ship it to Ireland,the gas thing is I can go from southern Ireland to Northern Ireland,[over the border] that separates Ireland from the UK,and I can buy one over the counter in most gun shops,they are a hell of a bit more expensive than in the united states,499 dollars in the states,599 sterling in England.284 dollars of a difference,but I am determined in getting one so will have to work the extra few hours to get one,

I am considering this,, mostly as a toy, but, I consider ALL rimfires to be toys,,

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0768BHHFY...v_ov_lig_dp_it

Be sure to watch the video at that Amazon ad,, the system might be cheap,,
but,, who wants to break the bank for a little fun?

Can you get that on your side of the pond for $140??

I watched the whole video,its not that bad at all,only thing is that I don't about it is,you don't look into the scope to watch your target,your looking at the screen,i think that takes the fun out of shooting,but saying that I can get it over to me on amazon,and I might just buy it and stick it on my .22.
