I was just browsing for gear the other day, and saw nvg's with those head straps, since I have nearly perfect night sight, I don't need nvg's, but I could use a 4x24 head mounted monocular (well, anything, as long as it has over x4 zoom)

because im always peeping at long ranges, so instead of packing binoculars, why shouldnt I just havea head mounted monocular? anyone know where I can get a $20 or $30 one? do they even make them?

You could probably ghetto rig one for cheap and a lot easier.

all you need to do is find one in stock and get the bracket to mount it on your helmet and not the guns

wtf?
Gen. 3 for $150 yeah right.

This is the best Gen. 1 NVG for the price, from what I hear.

One guy told me about the monocular.
But you need a better IR illuminator, which is another $100.
But its good for 50m.
Lenses are available for it, but theyre useless if your IR stinks. Because you get a blurry picture.
A good IR shines a beam of infra red up to 200m. And its picked up by the monocular.
If its a good monocular you can mount it behind your red dot.

as cheap as you will get.

The head mount is usually 120. Yukon made one.

So he will spend $150 on something that doesnt work, when there is a real NV monocular for $170.

He doesn't want NVG. He wants magnification.

yeah, just magnification is what I need, nvg's just waste money, space, and the major concern of getting it broken.

I found cool little monoculars for like, $20 bucks, but no good head strap.
