    Range finding solutings in Night/Dark?

    On top is an M300W with a 3x optical magnifier, this is running off the Anker battery pack. Thermals eat batteries like candy, so you really want external battery capabilities. Below the battery pack is a Silencerco Radius LRF. No longer made, next closest thing is a Wilcox RAPTAR. On the...

    Range finding solutings in Night/Dark?

    The Pulsar is just OK, as with much of this type equipment made for the civilian market the usable ranges are about half the specified numbers. The rangefinder hits a 12x12 inch target at 600, but not 700. Note that it's visible in NVG's. I personally find the color pallet more annoying than...

    Range finding solutings in Night/Dark?

    The big downside to the RAPTER / Radius setup is setup. Either you dedicate the unit to a rifle, or you have it slaved to a spotter. You could rezero it every time I suppose, moving it around. Setup of that first system is time consuming, and you really don’t want to move it around much...

    Options for Adding More Elevation

    Go with the TARAC. The adjustable mount is just not repeatable. The TARAC is repeatable, precise and can be moved between rifles.

    I’ve actually got a Moskito available, one only.

    That's a Vector Nite, the standard Vector has a bracket to put a PVS-14 on the right eyepiece.

    Range finding solutings in Night/Dark?

    The Moskito or the JIMs are the top line options, with the Vector/PLRF coupled with a PVS-14 is the next best thing. The Moskito and JIM are not normally commercial items, but they are out there. Nice thing about the Moskito is it's day/night in one unit. The RAPTER or Radius also works...

    Night Vision C.A.M.P & E-C.A.M.P (Coti Adaptive Mounting Plate)

    Well, back in the day Optics 1 did make an extended periscope for the COTI for mounting to a clip on, but it's long discontinued. Can't say if that was pure performance or recoil issues, but I only ever saw one, and they did not bring it back for the E-COTI, so...

    Non magnetic tripod systems

    I actually used some 316 SS parts originally, but they have enough ferritic mass to still throw the DMC off, even though they are "non-magnetic" You may not be able to pick them up with a magnet, but they are not totally non-magnetic like brass is.

    Non magnetic tripod systems

    The main use here is with the rangefinder tethered to the computer, when I click the button I get the firing solution and the grid coordinates of the target. Having an amagnetic tripod setup makes that very accurate. Vectronix sells tripods for that purpose, and they are military issue (the...

    Non magnetic tripod systems

    In case anyone uses azimuth and distance for geolocation, I've been successful in converting the Manfrotto 410 Gear Head to a non-magnetic condition. I did a conversion of the larger PL plate system to the RC2 system. Then I replaced all the stainless hardware with brass. The springs all must...
