Ok for a newbie answer what I thought was a simple question. What night vision scope will survive my new AR 458 SOCOM's impact while fast action night hog hunting?

It is hard to say for sure, since a lot depends on the ammo you use and the weight of the gun.

You may want to ask the manufacturer of the scope.

Generally, anything rated for 308Win should be OK on 458SOCOM AR.

Generally, depending on bullet weight and velocity...

I was told that Leupold tests all their scopes for suitability on spring air rifles. I am not happy with most offerings, but i would like to install and use their 3-9x33 with adjustable parallax objective and a normal duplex reticle.
I will test it first. I will soon do a complete demolition of a tiled bathroom with some concrete flooring and walls with a large electric Bosch hammer/drill/chisel vibratory crazy woodpecker tool. I will wrap the scope to protect against dust and scratches, but will strap it and attach it to the tool. I am sure that i will produce sufficient vibrations per second and enough recoil to tear up my elbows. If the scope survives, we're good to go. If that voids warranty, i don't care, the scope would be useless anyway. Standby for results.

Now that is an interesting test methodology...
