I don't fall into the expert catagory, but regardless of brand, you want to go with the highest generation you can get for clarity. GEN 3 may go over your 1K mark. you may fall into GEN 2 catagory.

Now the experts may chime.

the only experience I have ever had with an actual night vision scope was with a cheaper  genI, I could have shined a keychain flashlight and seen better with a regular scope than with that thing.

I have a couple gen I NVDs.  Neither is a rifle scope, but they are both about equal to my unaided night vision.  With a good set of 7x50 binocs I can see better than with the NVDs.  Maybe for someone who has eaten less carrots they work?  I don't know.  Plus the NVD glow will ruin your night vision so once you look through it you can't switch back to naked eye without a 15 to 30 minute window of relative blindness.

I have seen some decent Gen 1 NVD's. There was a time when they were state of the art, and indispensible for recon work. They do work just fine if they are a quality piece. One of the important things is to have a good IR Laser providing the light. A good NVD will be able to utilize ambient light for close in work 50 yards +/-
 
The thing about Gen 2 and 3 is the improvement in details especially the Gen 3. The basic principle is the same.
