SWFA has them listed but Chris says they ain't in yet.

Chris, any idea when they will arrive?

Anyone have hands-on experience?

Undecided.

It will go on an AR10 or the Whisper.  First time out, on the AR10, in case I find a whole messa hogs in the dark.

Finally, UPS didn't screw me.

Now, which rifle to put it on: the AR10 has the Premier, Whisper has the IOR, the M4 has an Aimpoint: M4 it is, for now.

To the range this weekend  more to follow.

Initial impressions on the Pulsar N550 Digisight:

1.  It works well!  I have experience with gen 2 and gen 3 and I'd put this somewhere between them in terms of resolution and light "gathering" (maybe gen2+.)

2.  At 200 yards in low light, I could distinguish individual bricks on a house (yea, sorry, "bay window" review for now, real review coming.

3.  If you buy one, get the add on illuminator, it does it's job well.

4.  Reticle choices are not bad, but Pulsar doesn't provide any hard data such as hashs at specific intervals.  Fortunately, it is fixed power so I'll work all that out on the range.

5.  For it's size, it isn't as heavy as I expected.

6.  They say "lifetime warranty", then the package contents say 3 year warranty (I've never seen an NV device with lifetime warranty, but prefer not to be lied to.)

7.  Zeroing process seems a bit odd, we'll see how it functions.

8.  There is a button for everything, not sure if that is a negative or a positive just yet.

9.  No green haze as in traditional intensifier tubes, not sure if that is a negative or a positive.

10.  The little plastic extension tube with eye-piece sucks.  At least rubberize the part that my face touches.  Damn.


All in all, I like it, and the price is probably half what a conventional gen2 would cost.  Not yet sure how it works in the sun (will test that soon.)  If that works well, it'll be hands down better than any gen2.

By the way, the ND3 laser designator will be for sale soon (with LaRue QD.)  It ain't needed no more.
